THE DIGEST

Five signs you need a new driver.

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Contents -

SHAFT DROOP

The amount the shaŽ bends in the toe di­rec­tion dur­ing the down­swing. Misses high on the face sug­gest too much shaŽ droop.

BUTT END

The part of the club at the top end of the shaŽ or grip.

BACK WEIGHT

Adding weight to the grip end of the club to pro­vide a coun­ter­bal­anc­ing ef­fect, pri­mar­ily pop­u­lar in putters.

DANGLE AN­GLE

The amount of an­gle from the toe to the heel. The more an­gle, the greater the draw bias.

TIP STIFF

Cut­ting the tip end of a shaŽ makes it play slightly stiffer than in­tended, low­er­ing spin rate and ball flight, too.
