W. H. Special Driving Brassie

Harry Vardon, Gene Sarazen, and Walter Hagen were the last holdouts to switching to a socket neck driver from a splice/scared neck driver.  A splice neck is firmer an inch and a half further up the shaft vs. a socket and moves the bend point of the shaft further up the shaft vs. a socket.  In part this provides a more stable impact zone and ball control thru a higher flex point in the shaft and reduced torque.  We have lofted this club as a true driving brassie at 13* to accommodate players of abilities.  Whether you hit it high or low be confident that the stabilized impact zone will benefit you as it did Vardon, Hagen, and Sarazen.  In Mr. Vardon’s own words from Vardon’s book “it is my experience that I can constantly get a truer and a better ball with them.”
