Your wedge shafts matter (from Plugged In Golf)

Recommended Posts

Matt Saternus (used to be with MGS) of PluggedInGolf.com posted an interesting article...

"Do wedge shafts matter?"

https://pluggedingolf.com/do-wedge-shafts-matter-golf-myths-unplugged/

He tested in a similar style to MGS using a variety of recreational players and identical wedge heads with different shafts, then swapping them among the players and having them hit different short game shots. Results are measured by Trackman at a Club Champion.

The questions he was looking to "Confirm" or "Bust" include...

Myth #1 – A wedge shaft can create more spin

Myth #2 – A wedge shaft can change launch angle

Myth #3 – A wedge shaft can improve accuracy

Myth #4 – A wedge shaft can improve consistency

Myth #5 – The same shaft will fit all your wedges

Interesting and informative article .. worth a look!

Thought this was interesting as when i go to fittings, the fitters really don’t pay much attention to this aspect even with a club champion full bag fitting.
I certainly could see how trajectory and spin are different but I’ve never felt a large difference in terms of feel with wedge shafts.
