Clubmaking Forum

discuss, ask and learn about golf and clubmaking

I love helping people "play better golf," whether through golf lessons, custom club fitting and set building, or by repairing their clubs. I have been trained by Jim Yachinich at three different schools at Golfworks. I am certified on the Mitchell Signature Angle and Putter Angle machines. I am also Titleist Performance Institute Certified.

APEX TCB emblem/weight 24g+

Another simple option is to replace the current, heavier grip, which is about 50 grams or more, with a Tour 25 grip. This will make a big swingweight change. Here’s the link: https://www.golfworks.com/golf-pride-tour-25-light-weight-golf-grip/p/gp0056/...
