Steel Vs Wooden Golf Clubs

Steel vs Wooden Golf Clubs

Name: Cristian

Comments: There are a few good reasons. Some practical and some physical. Wood is a natural material. Different wooden shafts behave differently so you have to know each particular club and its characteristics.It is vary labour intensive to manufacture and it needs oiling and attention if it is to be used in all weathers.It can break if subjected to a shock.It is much heavier than a steel shaft so less energy is available to hit the ball.But the really big reason is torsional rigidity.A wooden shaft twists as you accelerate it so the head of the golf club is not pointing on the angle that you expect.The amount of twisting depends on the acceleration at the moment you hit the ball.So if you hit hard the ball slices to the right but if you hit gently it doesn't. Now if it was consistent it could be allowed for. But it isn't consistent. So the golfer needs a lot more skill to play the game.A tube (Whether of steel or any other material) is much stronger for any given weight and is much more resistant to twisting for any given strength. So the steel tube is almost free of the torsional effect.The consistency also extends to being able to make shafts which are all identical so the golfer doesn't have to spend time learning each club.All told it makes a poor golfer seem better.

Clubs Golf Wooden Steel

High performance golf club comes with annoying sound

In 2007, a new golf club hit the market. The distribution of mass in the club head made it less likely to twist, making an off-center hit less likely, but it had a drawback: a loud noise when it struck the ball, piercing through the tranquility of a golf course. The club never grew popular among players, with many saying they disliked the noise. Researchers set out to find the cause of the offensive clang. Ref. Source 3t.
