About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.

FRIENDLY WARNING/REMINDER – Don’t leave your clubs in the trunk with this heat

So I just got another email from someone who’s head flew off and needs it repaired (5th one this week!). When it gets this hot, the temperature in your trunk is like an oven and will quickly break down the epoxy that secures the head to the shaft. Its just a good idea to keep you clubs in the garage or indoors when it gets really hot. Please check your clubs and if you see any separation from the ferrule (the black plastic piece) and the actual club head then you should take it by your local club-maker to have it checked out.

As always if your still hitting it sideways and the clubs look fine with no separation then just toss the bag as illustrated and come see Hodson Golf to get custom fit for clubs that do the job they are supposed to 🙂

The Fujikura Ventus shaft is the real deal – as supported by My Golf Spy

We have been singing the accolades of the newest shaft release from Fujikura – The Ventus. Everyone we have put this in has raved about the tighter dispersion and longer distances (much more roll) from this higher launching/lower spinning shaft featuring the latest Velocore Technology. This is a fairly technical review and a great one for the “gearheads” out there, but also some great info for those wanting to learn shaft characteristics. I love the fact that My Golf Spy has partnered with Cool Clubs out of AZ and their proprietary S3 shaft profiling technology (see our past posts and you can still get the app on Apple Store). It’s a long article so I’ve broken out some of the best snippets below.

MY GOLF SPY – FUJIKURA VENTUS TESTING

  • What does this mean for the golfer? For those who swing in the 105 to 120 mph range, the Ventus 6S is a low spin, tight dispersion shaft — your shots will stay in the fairway. The stiffer tip section keeps the spin down but won’t negatively affect the launch angle. Whether you’re fast tempo or slow tempo, swinging an easy 80% or trying to swing out of your shoes, Ventus can keep up with you and keep your dispersion tight. Often, higher swing speed golfers fear amping up to the next gear because the result might be a ball headed off into the rough. That won’t happen – or at least it will happen less – with the Ventus. It is an exceptionally stable shaft that just does not twist through the swing, so there are fewer power leaks from off-center hits.

  • Remember the old finger traps that you played with as a kid? You put your two index fingers into either end of a woven bamboo cylinder and pulled in opposite directions. The harder you pulled, the tighter the cylinder became longitudinally until your fingers got stuck. This shaft works similarly. The more stress you put on it, the more efficiently it performs! If you don’t quite hit the sweet spot on the clubface, the result will not be overly penalizing. The Ventus helps limit twisting, which keeps the face more square through impact. Squarer impact means straighter ball flight, higher ball speed, longer distance, and great misses!
  • During our fittings players often have two comments about the Ventus. The first is about how great the shaft feels. The second is about how good the misses are. These are both rooted in how the Ventus transfers energy and how little it twists.

Aerotech Steelfiber had a great week (again!)

SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, delivered five Top 10’s this week on the PGA, LPGA and Champion tours. Designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, SteelFiber shafts scored two T4’s at the Canadian Open, two T5’s at the ShopRite LPGA Classic and one T10 at the Mastercard Japan Championship.

Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons, the 2012 FedEx Cup champion shot 69 in three rounds and a tournament low score of 60 for a T4 finish. Last year he even bested that score when he blazed a 59 at the Wyndham Championship. Meanwhile, SteelFiber J-series and SteelFiber i80 shafts grabbed two T5 positions at the ShopRite LPGA Classic and SteelFiber i95 irons took a share of 10th-place at the Mastercard Japan Championship.

“SteelFiber shafts continue to deliver consistent performance week after week on pro tours around the world,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Unlike traditional steel as well as other graphite shafts, innovative SteelFiber technology provides unique performance-enhancing benefits such as reducing the risk of injury, lessening aggravation of existing injuries and decreasing player fatigue, while simultaneously delivering greater distance and accuracy.”

SteelFiber shafts provide superior performance through revolutionary composite engineering that combines a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface. The shaft’s graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, while the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.

Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as PXG, Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Cobra, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG and Nakashima Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world. Aerotech Golf is a proud supporter of the Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals (AGCP) and the International Clubmakers Guild (ICG).
