Swing speed

Justin St. Clair

Q: For some reason when I swing my 3 wood the swing speed is about 10 mph faster than when I swing my driver. I feel like I am making the same swings, but something is causing the decrease in clubhead speed. Any explaination as to why this might be happening?


A: The only reason I could think of why your swing speed would be greater with your 3-wood than your driver would be if either your driver shaft is to short or to flexible. Or, your 3-wood shaft is longer than standard. I would take both clubs to a professional club fitter and have them checked out.
