Old age help!
Hoping for some good advice here.
I am a long time golfer, 35 years plus. I still play to a good standard (plus index).
Like many on here, I like to try out new gear and have loads of irons etc.
My issue lately has been joint tiredness when playing and some aching elbows after/during my game.As a result of this I can still hit some great shots, but find that sometimes now I miss when just not committing fully to the shot and really not loading up the shaft so to speak. I think some of this will be joint tiredness and some a slight defense to the elbow pain.
I play Modus 125x in my irons, and my other sets all have x flex in them. So I have x100 etc.
Will a lighter shaft take away the effort do you think, will it reduce the elbow pain? I am a low flight player, always have been as i grew up playing links golf in strong winds and my game is used to this need.
I dont want to come off the golf course exhausted so to speak and dont want the pain. I am just not sure whether all steel shafts would be the same, or will a lighter shaft or maybe more importantly a softer flex help me. What about Steelifiber, I have read many saying these took away joint pain, although I think they can be quite stout from what I have read.
Thanks in advance, seems old age does not come on it's own!
