Each and every season manufacturers are creating innovative ways to add more distance to your game. The most recent trend is lightweight drivers (lighter heads, shafts and grips). Some of which are upwards to 75 grams lighter than traditional drivers. The overall result is a subtle to moderate increase in swing speed which provides more distance. From a marketing perspective it’s easy to sell more yardage.
With a lighter grip, shaft and head, manufacturers have increased the length of the shaft to achieve ideal swing weight (D-2). As the statistics show, lighter weight clubs generally means a lack of control and or feel.
