Shaft Flex is always a hot issue in the golf world. What any given golfer “should” be playing is always open for debate as the keyboard warriors flex their critical muscles behind their screens. To be fair, I did have a few preconceived notions on this stuff myself but the more I try different things,… Read More »Why I Play an X Stiff Shaft in My Irons
