The video is self-explanatory, but here are a couple of high points.
- Improving your ball contact with a shorter shaft can actually give you more ball speed than a longer shaft will.
- When you first change shaft length, it may take some time to become consistent with it. That's because you may have developed compensations in your swing that affect it even after you get the shaft that's correct for you.
- What kind of distance can you realistically expect with a properly-fitted driver?
- Which is more important to you -- the distance or the ability to control where the shot goes?
- Rickie changed his driver to 43.5 inches, which is the current standard for a 3-wood and was the standard for a driver back in the 1980s when steel-headed drivers became popular.
- And Jimmie Walker changed his to 42 inches, which matches Harry Vardon's driver back in the late 1890s and early 1900s.
