There’s More To This Golf Club Configuration Than What the Golf Club Companies Are Telling You
We would be remiss if we didn’t take a serious look at both Bryson DeChambeau’s golf swing as well as Moe Norman, the supposed mentor of his instructor. Yes there are similarities but not when it comes to lie angle on the golf club or swing plane angle. Funny enough, Moe talks about being very vertical in one of his videos but watching him on film he is quite shallow.
This must have created a difficult decision for the golf club companies in that do you service or build around a Moe Norman configuration or Bryson DeChambeau?
To me, (I’m not done with my complete analysis) it looks like both Cobra and the generics have decided to go with a 62.5 lie angle which is common for a standard seven iron. Well that is certainly not Bryson DeChabeau based by the video below, and maybe too upright for Moe Norman. I’m not sure.
Being that the generics I assuming followed the lead of Cobra, then we have no choice but to move the lie angles as far as we could which was to 64 degrees and stand closer to the ball for a more upright swing plane. If we’re going to find out if Bryson’s method is a better way to play golf than we have to head in his direction. A word of caution! From the video below, I’m not certain that Bryson swings the golf club exactly like Moe?
With that in mind we have to head in one direction or look for two answers.
1: Does swinging the golf club on a vertical plane, (more upright) create a more consistent and tighter ball flight pattern.
2: Does the single length golf club make it easier for the average golfer by only having one set-up throughout the set in ball position, distance from the ball AND more importantly does the single length concept help golfers hit the center of gravity of the golf club more often?
We still have work to do. I just ordered another shaft configuration that I think will help and its’ on the way. One seemingly important issue is the six, five and four iron not getting enough height. I might have that resolved with a different shaft configuration and cutting procedures. We’ll know soon!
