There was ‘Dufnering’ in ‘The Hangover’?

Dufnering in The Hangover

Of all the ‘Dufnering’ moments I’ve seen thus far, this one has to be one of the best. Not because it was done on purpose, but because it was done inadvertently, in a movie, well before the ‘Dufnering’ phenomenon (or whatever it is) took hold.

Jack Whitaker Lends his Legendary Voice to The Palms Golf Club

I’m a child of the 80’s (well, actually I was born in 1979), but every time I hear Jack’s voice, I can’t help but think of the many Shell Wonderful World of Golf broadcasts I’ve watched over the years. While the video above has absolutely nothing to do with that, Jack sure does lend undeniable ‘golf cred’ to what might have otherwise been a bland production.

Make sure to give the video above a watch. Would love to play the track, it looks fabulous.

What’s the difference between cast and forged irons?

Cast Irons vs. Forged Irons

A forged iron is, well, forgedmeaning the club is hammered or pounded into shape from one piece of metal, while cast irons are molded from liquid metal in a custom die cast. Forged irons are traditionally made from low carbon steel, which is “softer,” and cast irons are usually made from stainless steel.

It is important to note that forging and casting refer to the way the club is made – a forged iron and a cast iron can be both a muscle back (blade), where the weight on the head is even throughout, and a cavity back, where the weight on the head is shifted away from its center and sometimes results in a more forgiving shot if the ball is hit off-center.

Cast irons are more economical to produce (and cheaper to buy) as casting is a less labour intensive process, and most of the irons on the market are produced this way. Many traditionalists like forged clubs for the way they are designed and find the lofts and lie of a forged iron easier to adjust.

Some golfers say they can “feel” a difference between a forged iron and a cast iron due to the vibrations in the shaft upon impact with the ball–not all air bubbles escape the metal during casting, which results in a “muffled” sound and less vibration (“feel”) upon impact.

So which should you choose? The average player will probably not be able to tell the difference between a forged iron and a cast iron at the molecular level, and most problems for the average golfer are related to swing, not air bubbles. Try out some irons – if you find a set you feel really comfortable with get those, regardless of if they’re cast or forged.

What is Coefficient of Restitution (COR)?

What is Coefficient of Restitution (COR)?

The coefficient of restitution (COR) measures the elasticity of a pair of objects in collision and measures the ratio of speeds before and after an impact. In golf terms, the COR of Object A (say a golf club) measures Object A’s ability to transfer energy to Object B (the ball) when Object A and B collide.
