clubs break with traditionThe original idea behind the square
golf club was that of Alan Hocknell, a mechanical engineer who worked
alongside great players such as Phil Mickelson at the masters.
How does a square golf club improve my game?
The square profile allows weight
to be placed outside of the normal weighting perimeter as found on a traditional
round-headed driver. This in turn prevents twisting combined with an enlarged
sweet-spot to provide straight and powerful shots.
Initially, pros were not happy to
be seen brandishing a square golf club – this perception was quickly
dispersed after a short spell of far-reaching drives, one after the other.
Thomas Bjorn, selecting his words wisely after
the much publicised Ryder Cup confrontation with Ian Woosnam commented that
traditional drivers had been in existence for such a long time that something new
would always look strange! He even went on to express his surprise and delight
at the degree to which the golf ball would travel in the right direction.
Not only do square golf clubs sit well, the square sides improve its aim – with a traditional golf driver you have
to strike the ball from off the sweet spot; with a square profiled club,
accuracy is not as important.
The dawn of the square golf clubs heralds
in a new era for amateur golfers, who could normally achieve a minimum of 3 to
4 straight shots per round – could now reach the fairway up to 75% of all
