How much do you really know about your golf clubs? Did you know that: * The lower the loft on your driver, the farther you'll hit it? * Your new driver has a larger sweetspot? * You are playing a stiff shaft, because it says so on it. * Women's clubs are designed for women? Fine, but the problem is... NONE OF THOSE THINGS ARE TRUE Tom Wishon, one of the world's leading club designers, takes you on a guided tour of the golf club, explaining in lay language how and why golf clubs work the way they do. Perhaps of even greater importance, he explains what to look for-and what to look out for-when you buy your next club.

...the average golfer knows little more about golf clubs than what he or she reads in advertising or sees in Golf Channel infomercials.

It turns out the latest cutting-edge frontier in golf... is plain old-fashioned custom club fitting. Do you think: * That clubheads made from harder metal will hit the ball farther? * The faster you swing, the stiffer your shaft should be? * That your clubs are
just like the ones the pros use?
Find out WHY those things are not true and learn the things they do NOT tell you in the golf club ads!
