One of my buddies has a theory of choosing a golf ball for us high-handicappers. He holds the ball at shoulder height and drops it on a smooth hard floor (e.g., concrete floor of the garage). The higher it bounces, the better choice it is. Anyone have an opinion about whether this has any validity?

Hello Charles. Sadly, there isn't any validity to this method. Letting a ball bounce from shoulder height will not be a good test/measurement to see how far it will travel from a full swing speed.

Thanks, Craig. I calculated that if dropped from 5 feet, a ball will have reached about 18 mph when it hits the floor. Even my puny swing speed is quite a lot faster than that.

Indeed. My putter stroke is about 50 mph. (I never leave it short.)

does weak or strong grip factor into compressing the ball

Hey Phil. Yes, the grip can play a factor. Grip effects the speed, face, etc.. All major factors to compression. The RST goal is to have a good balance. Slightly stronger than neutral for optimal speed with face control. Technically, a stronger grip can lead to more speed, but law of diminishing returns controlling face angle.

How do pros flex the shaft at the top of their swing and into the downswing? Watching Martin Kaymer and he gets incredible shaft flex with woods and irons

That is caused by proper sequencing in the downswing. There is a lot of momentum in the club as they are shifting left and starting transition thus giving you that flexed shaft look.

I would like some advice about driver selection. I play with a titliest titanium 983K (9.5). The shaft is a prolite grafalloy. Red shaft stiff. I fight it to hit the shots I want. How do I find the right shaft for me. I went thru demo session for it. My 3 wood callaway big Bertha war bird with a rifle shaft 5.0. I hit any shot I want draw, cut, high, low. All my irons (ping green dot blades) are rifle shafts 5.0 also. All my equipment is about 15 yrs old. I feel that if I had the right driver I could be more consistant as with my 3 wood. I hit my 3 wood between 230-260. Depending on fairways.

Hey Dparsons, the best advice we can offer is to get on a launch monitor with a reputable fitter in your area and have them work with you to find the best possible setup that allows for proper ball spin, launch angle etc. based on your current swing. I also recommend to make sure you are comfortable with the current swing before going to make this investment because if you are still going through drastic changes in the swing, some of those numbers may change as your swing evolves.
