Have you ever heard about golfers adding tape to their golf clubs? What is the effect of this? Do they even consider it a strategy, or just plain sophistication?
The fake belief about this is adding a lead tape in order to make the ball more manageable. If anyone says that it changes the center of gravity of the head, well, the flying ball will not even be possible. The center of gravity is simply the point where the head of a golf club at which it would be perfectly balanced. For the golfer to notice a flight change in the ball with the same clubhead, the center of gravity has to attain a quarter-inch movement. To achieve this, the ball requires less than 10 of 4-inch long strips of half-inch wide lead tape. They make sure that these are all placed on the same spot of the head towards which center of gravity movement is preferred.
However, the real thing about this is the increase of swing weight of the golf club. Swing weight is simply defined as the weight of a golf club once the player swings it.
In order to do this, the tape must only be a 4-inch long strip of half-inch wide lead tape. This is proven to raise the swingw eight of any golf club by one point. A golfer may specifically do this method to his own golf iron sets. New golfers learn by other’s training and by their own exploration as well.
On the other hand, you can begin to experiment adding lead tapes to your golf iron sets. Whenever you feel no presence of the clubhead or you feel hasty with your swing, try adding lead tape in order for you to develop experience while playing. Certain problems like this is natural for you to encounter. Before you can master golf, it will require you to spend long time and patience.
