I am playing AP1/712's with the Graphite Design Tour AD 65i (regular flex) and have been using the "Secret Grip" (the one Nicklaus advertises) that has 17grams of Tungsten in the butt end of the grip. I know that some of the best players in the game have been butt end weighting their clubs for years and years.....but my question is this........
What have I done to my swing weight? These grips should help you release the club head a little more and that might be why I have had the occasional pull/hook with my irons!! Would adding lead tape to the club head bring the swing weight back into factory specs (or close!)? Or am I better off going back to Golf Pride Dual Decade Whiteout grips I was using?
I'm just not sure if the guys like Nicklaus were back weighting their irons and then doing something to bring the swing weight back into factory specs (or their original specs!).
This pull/hook issue has got me thinking I might put my Project X Flighted 5.0 iron shafts in my AP1 heads!! I just don't know if I will lose distance doing this!! And God knows I don't need to lose any distance!!!LOL!!!!
I need your help Team Titleist.....and anyone else on here for that matter!!
Thanks so much and God bless, Todd
