One of the biggest questions that I see when talking about minimalist golf is just how it affects score. I was reading one of the golf forums the other day and someone said something like “I am completely on board with fewer clubs, but I just can’t do it because it will cost me shots.”… Read More »Minimalist Golf and Score
I have been a keen golfer for over three decades. Over that time, I have tried almost everything on the market in terms of equipment. I am particularly interested in single length irons and minimalist golf and would consider myself an expert on both.
I have owned and played several single length irons over the years, from my first set of Pinhawks through the Wishon Sterling irons and the Cobra one set. I have enjoyed them all and have written extensively about my personal experiences with them as well as the pros and cons of each. One thing that… Read More »Which Shaft for Single Length Irons?
As someone who is both far too tall and also gets through sets of irons at a prodigious rate, I find myself in quite an unusual position. I often come across sets on the various secondhand market places out there, but these are quite a long way from what most people would consider my ideal… Read More »Fitting the Taller Golfer
Fitting is an area that interests me a lot. My opinion on it changes fairly often but as an equipment junkie, it is obviously something close to me heart. This is particularly true of iron fitting because I love irons more than anything else. I was naturally drawn then to a recent article on Golfwrx… Read More »There is No Logic to Iron Fitting (Says Terry Koehler)
Hybrids were (and still are) a game changer for many golfers. Before this, your options for the longer end of the bag were severally limited. You might find a few five woods kicking around to bridge the gap between 3 wood and 3 iron, but that was about it. and everyone carried a 3 iron!… Read More »Is 7 Wood the New Hybrid?
What we find in the average golf bag has changed hugely over the last few decades. A modern 460cc driver make of carbon looks nothing like a persimmon from the 1980s or even a metal-headed driver from twenty years ago. Comparing modern “spaceship” putter designs to the classic Golden Goose is also a huge contrast.… Read More »Should We all Play a 2 Iron?
I have three main areas of interest when it comes to golf: single length irons, minimalist golf and equipment, especially irons. What I enjoy more than anything in terms of irons is finding and playing a classic set, especially blades. This is obviously a very personal thing, but finding a complete set of something like… Read More »Playing Golf with Classic Clubs
Playing minimalist golf and using fewer clubs has always been a fairly obvious thing to me. When I was a junior starting out, I had a handful of mixed clubs that had been given to me or come out of the used bin in the pro shop. I can’t remember ever thinking about how many… Read More »Minimalist Golf: Which Clubs to Drop?
As a disclaimer, I am not a golf coach. I am someone who thinks about the game quite a bit and like every other golfer on the planet, I do want to improve. However, I am not looking for a complete overhaul of my swing and don’t want to get into anything too technical. What… Read More »3 Keys for Lower Scores
I was watching a WITB (What’s in the bag) from a popular golf fitter the other day. He is clearly both an expert on equipment as well as being someone who puts a lot of thought into the detail of his set make up. He is also a scratch golfer. He was talking about his… Read More »How Many Wedges do you Need?
