Ralph has lectured at more than 250 PGA business schools on golf club design principles, golf club fitting and golf club repair procedures. he has taught Tour player schools, repair and fitting workshops for the PGA, and has written numerous instructional books and articles for golfing publications around the world. he is a member of the Golf Writers Association of America and The Golf Collectors Society. in 1991 he was listed by Golf Digest as one of the 36 most powerful men in golf, and in 1996 was inducted into the Professional Clubmakers Society Hall of Fame.
Earlier this year, Maltby published the results of decades-long research in his latest book on golf club design, The Maltby Playability Factor – Understanding Golf Club Dynamics, Book One: Irons. Based on decades of experience, he developed a comprehensive system to select the right iron head desigs for golfers of every playing ability, including tour professionals, and this new book translates the theory and history of iron design into a practical guide for understanding iron playability.
