Tiger Woods, Shaft flex Does Matter
Tiger hitting golf shots at the 2009 PGA championships. Tiger has swing speeds of up to 135mph with his driver, which makes it very important that his shaft is tuned for his power. As you can see from the picture even with his very heavy and extra stiff shaft the forces pulling on the golf club are to strong and the shaft has amazing bend before impact. High speed camera footage shows that even though the shaft may flex the centre of gravity catches up with the grip at impact.
Choosing the correct golf shaft to match your golf game can be hard. Always seek professional advice to be sure you make the correct choice. The best way to choose your correct equipment is to measure swing speed, launch angle and spin rates from the face.
