The Best of the Best in Lady’s Clubs

   Miscela from TaylorMade Golf.

By: Dr. Barry Lotz

While there are approximately six million women golfers, their presence and participation in the game needs to continue to be grown and encouraged. Today, female golfers represent one of the fastest growing segments of the golfing population; more and more women are becoming very serious about their equipment. Female golfers are all too often a forgotten element when it comes to a wide selection of golf equipment.

Within the golf industry, introducing new goals, plans and incentives for new golfers and retention of the old, is an underlying problem that continues to pester the experts  why are there not more women in the sport?

The answers that are glaringly obvious are that:

  1. Women are different and need equipment to suit their characteristics.
  2. The levels of professional instruction are erratic and shortsighted as they pertain to women. (This subject will be covered in a future article)
  3. Perception of distance between irons is hardly noticeable.
  4. Marketing needs to be specifically aimed at the lady golfer.
  5. Women want good quality at a reasonable price.

In years past, the accommodation of women was almost an afterthought in that the equipment women had to choose from was nothing more than modifications to existing mens equipment. Softer shafts were used and a new paint job added.

With the proliferation of new materials, availability of golf specific data, superfluous or not, massive R & D departments at the major manufacturers have now allocated resources to fill the critical need to solely supply female golfers with equipment based on their needs.

Within the last few years, companies such as Cobra, PING, Adams, La Jolla Club, Callaway, GolfGear, Nancy Lopez, Pat Lange and Wilson Golf have developed ladies clubs. The majority of these companies changed shafts to a lighter weight as their primary improvement and enhancement for women players based on slower swing speeds for women. Ignored were varying lofts (higher), shaft length and grip sizes.

TaylorMade Golf, known for its history of innovation in golf equipment and the top ranked driver, irons and fairway woods company, has introduced Miscela, a revolutionary new set of women’s golf clubs consisting of 10 clubs. The set features the perfect combination of head design, lie, weight, length, flex and grip size to meet the unique form, swing and goals of women around the world.

Miscela, which means “blend” or “mixture” in Italian, features a driver, 3-wood, three Mid Woods (Mid 4, Mid 5 and Mid 6) and five irons (7-iron, 8-iron, 9-iron, pitching wedge and sand wedge).

TaylorMade eliminated the hard-to-hit long irons in favor of Mid Woods, an innovative new club that features a large head and broad sole, making Mid Woods both easy and fun to play with. The design of the Miscela Mid Wood is based directly on TaylorMade’s Rescue Mid, which has proved exceedingly popular on the PGA Tour. However, the Mid Wood features more offset than the Rescue Mid, making the Mid Wood easier to hit straight.

Like the Rescue Mid, the Miscela Mid Wood is engineered to produce a high launch angle and high spin-rate, helping the player to get the ball in the air easily and to keep the ball in the air for long-carrying shots that stop quickly on the green. Mid Woods also boast high moment of inertia for exceptional forgiveness on mis-hits.

TaylorMade engineers also paid significant attention to making sure that each Miscela club delivers a specific distance that’s significantly different from the next club. This was achieved by carefully coordinating the length, loft and design dynamics of each consecutive club with the next, throughout the set.

And, as always with TaylorMade, the aesthetics of the clubs are simply outstanding. The Miscela offers additional positive and important attributes; the whole set imbues player confidence and the responsiveness of all the clubs is remarkable.

The Miscela set of golf clubs offers exceptional quality at a reasonable price.

MSRP: $ 1,200 for a set of 10
$ 700 for 7 clubs (without woods)

PING

Last year PING had the best-selling driver in the G30 model. This year, their new PING G has attracted a new set of devotees to the PING clan.
What the G driver offers is what every golfer desires – faster club head and ball speed. Using proprietary Turbulator Technology, VorTec and face/crown transition to combine for more efficient air flow, there is definitely a noticeable difference over the G30 version – all good.
The T9S Titanium face is thinner and hotter for maximum distance and deflection. The club’s adjustability with its 5-lobe hosel sleeve, allows ±1 degree of loft adjustment.
Another improvement is the DragonFly Technology –

Having problems with your swing? – Fix your slice! by Johnny Miller

I recently was examining swing sequences of some of the greatest players in history. Knowing that some of these players favored a draw as their standard shot while others preferred a fade, I sought to identify swing features within each group that would explain their respective ball-flight tendencies. Something profound emerged that I think will benefit all golfers, especially those cursed with a wicked slice.

What I found was this: Virtually every accomplished fader of the ball–from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods–displayed a straight left arm at the top of the backswing. Conversely, those who preferred a draw–players like Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones–maintained a slight bend at the elbow.

This discovery is great news for most slicers, as they tend to do by accident what intentional faders do on purpose. In this article I’ll explain why the dynamic works, and how a simple swing change will make a powerful draw your standard shot.
