  1. That's difficult to answer. I didn't play for some months and I changed the iron's "swingweight" and I changed my swing and I practiced more than usual and I changed my putting stroke. Nevertheless, I did have some lowest scores since many years.
  2. The weights were made from a stainless steel shaft cut to the right length for the needed weight, and a washer welded to the end so as to keep the weight from sliding down inside the shaft.
  3. I have been playing for a few months now with my butt weighted irons which as described above were all given the same total weight. I can report that the experiment has results. I cannot tell any difference in the performance or feeling between the clubs, except of course my swing plane is inclined differently for each club, which creates some differences. But the downswing resistance to acceleration seems the same, and the release pattern seems the same. It should be noted that my irons (and woods) were all adjusted for equal MOI, by adjusting the shaft length. The equal MOI also contr
  4. I added home-made butt weights to my irons so as to create the same total weight in each club, for pitching wedge through 2-iron. I added a two gram weight in my pitching wedge, a seven gram weight in my 9-iron, 12 gram in the 8-iron, etc, until a 43 gram weight in my 2-iron. They are inserted into the end of the shaft and held by the grip. The weights get heavier as the clubs lengthen because standard unweighted clubs get lighter as they lengthen. It’s a simple matter of weighing the pitching wedge and using that weight (plus two grams) as the target weight for the other clubs. Then a bu
  5. I just joined. I'm stuck in Germany near a village called Issum. My wife is German and inherited the family farm, so we moved here from California in 2002. Luckily we are next to a golf course. I'm retired and 72 now. I've been playing golf most of my life. I have been trying to invent golf products since 1975 and so far have no real successes. I made a few putters, a laser device for putting, some golf mats, and recently a butt weighting system for my own clubs, which I will disclose in the DIY section. I also concoct and copy exercises for my golf, with the favorite being swinging
