It is very important for all the golfers who are keen about their shooting the lowest scores to mull over the flex in their golf clubs. This only helps you to understand the science behind hitting of the ball better and makes the game more interesting.

Let’s understand what exactly I mean by the “Flex”. Flex here simply means the capability of the golf shaft to bend with the forces applied whilst the swing. You just have to joggle your golf club a little and see the shaft bending, this is what flex is all about.

Here are five primary sorts if shaft flex:
• Extra Stiff
• Stiff
• Regular
• Senior
• Ladies

Is the flex in your shaft that significant!!! Yeah, it is very important especially when the flex doesn’t really match the requirements of the swing, resulting into off-target shots. Not happening huh!! All right, it is the flex that will help you to impact your ball to hit the target, which means targeting it low, high, and far it travels.

Another very important that needs to be taken into consideration about your golf clubs and its flex is the position of the golf club head will change with the shaft flexes. So, always pick up the right shaft that will suit your swing type and the speed for the right shot to be delivered.

Here are some ways to select the right flex:

The driver is one of the best ways to select the flex you need. This isn’t a 100 percent accurate way, but surely the best golf clubs to use for this reason.

If you are the one who targets the left with your driver than a stiffer flex should be helpful whereas if your driver goes the right direction then a softer flex is the one for you.

If your swing is a smooth one then you will surely enhance it with the softer flex whereas if your swing is jerky at the height than a stiffer shaft may do you good.

If you aren’t that comfortable choosing your flex then its better to involve your local pro, according to me this is the best way to select a flex type. However, this needs a lot of guesswork for working out the right equation.

What a good professional pro would do is he will work out all the possible measurements, watch and calculate your swings and the speed calculate the target and come back to you with the right flex for your golf club swing. Here you need to experiment with various different golf clubs and keep noting the effects of your shots so as to get to the right shaft flex.
