What Is Torque In A Golf Shaft & Why Does It Matter?
Golf shaft torque is a crucial factor affecting a golfer's performance, measuring the shaft's resistance to twisting during the swing. Lower torque provides stability and control, suitable for faster and more aggressive swing speeds, while higher torque offers forgiveness and a better feel, primarily for slower swing speeds or someone who has a very fluid motion. Combining shaft torque with flex is essential for a personalized fit, and a professional club fitting can optimize accuracy and consistency.

While a process-oriented mindset reduces anxiety, enhances consistency, and improves mental resilience, it's essential to strike a balance between the two, emphasizing the process for control and improvement while still acknowledging the importance of outcomes as motivating goals.

10 Ways to Maximize Wedge Spin
To enhance wedge spin, combine proper technique, equipment, and knowledge of spin factors.
