Is there one parameter that you can look at to determine toe forgiveness of a golf club?
I ran across this statement on another golf forum
“The final MPF score isn’t a measure of forgiveness. The closest that the MPF data comes to such a measurement is the MOI, which is in the detail data. MPF final score is essentially a grade of how close that part clubhead is to Ralph Maltby’s design philosophy (low cg, cgin center of clubface, MOI, etc)”.
Any degree of truth in this? How does MOI affect forgiveness? I see a number of heads with low mpf’s and high MOI’s and vice versa. I’m not seeing much correlation between mpf and moi.
The longer the C-Dimension, which is the measurement from the hosel centerline out to the horizontal center of gravity, the more stable an iron design will be (or the more forgiving it will be). That being said, the vertical cg also needs to be in a good position, specifically not too high, for the overall playability (forgiveness) to be considered at a high level. Combine a longer C-Dimension and a lower vertical cg, you should have a high level of stability on off center hits.
