How far the shaft is in front of the face. Helps some players close the face. Personally i can't play it after playing minimal offset for years

Not a fan of offset but dont mind a little but i guess its to get your hands in front of you ball? I can move left or right offset or not as i used ping ISI coppers for a long time and i used to move the ball both ways . I wouldnt want to game that now, i game titleist MBs older ones AND callaway X22 pro's both same shafts projectX - Mark i find strike + speed creates spin but even on small shots i can swing slower and nail the strike and get great spin?

Some thoughts about offset I have never considered Mark. All I know is when I’ve hit offset irons I hate the look and I hit them left. Me? Maybe. Do I lack the skill to compensate? Probably. Would I like to hit it higher and further? Yes. Can I have distance with traditional looks please. Without going to the gym!

Offset makes the club seem like you're covering more of the ball. Makes the club look easier to hit

Mark - have you ever seen where less offset actually helped a player who would normally be expected to benefit from it? Lets say a 15 handicap who tends to hit behind the ball more often? I play ping karstens with fat soles and large offset, then recently demoed mizuno hot metals with less of each and hit them quite crisp. Any thoughts/advice?

Never have liked the look of offset. I am an older player and like smaller cavity irons with a minimum of offset with a 5 Handicap. I am already a highball hitter and my miss is a raging hook (pull). It's visual more than anything. I believe you adjust to what you are playing over time. Get fit for all your clubs and I believe you need to be re-fitted every so often as your handicap gets lower. Play the iron that fits your swing and your eye.

Offset bares no impact on my game what so ever. I don’t think about it even. Use ping i20’s and they’re still a great club to use. When I look down at the ball the only thing I’m thinking of is playing the shot as best I can. Not how offset my clubs are/look.

...I started playing golf 4 years ago, got addicted and organised myself a used set of clubs - after one year decided to get myself a fitted set of brand new clubs - and play them now happily knowing that they are „made“ for me. Offset or not - I honestly do not care; i like the look, sound, feel and results i get from them - after watching your vid (i very much appreciate your great stuff and your effort you put in your entertaining and informative content

video paused, offset to me is not something I need as I have no problem getting my clubhead path online, its something to help people who tend to slice. video restarted.

Offset is a translation of the club face at the hosel behind the shaft (opposite the direction of ball flight).

Offset = higher launch. It is down to the player I started with ping g2s and callaway x16s. I could hit the ball a mile but there was 20 yards difference between strikes for the same iron. Club head too heavy Shifted to MP57 (it was the look) and scored consistently better. Off 13 and use iBlades very little offset. No issues.

Mark what advantage  of a shorter shaft in a driver if any .
J G - 3 years ago
David Bynorth - I read a few good articles about driver shaft lengths between your typical “off the shelf” lengths vs customization to your body metrics (height, arm length etc.) and also what Pros on tour are doing. Pretty blackhole type subject that can suck you in. Bottom line seems to be that tour Pros are using driver lengths shorter than you’d think basically to help with accuracy vs manufacturers kicking out standard driver shafts a little longer to try and push the ever increasing demands for MORE DISTANCE! Longer shaft, more clubhead speed - you get the idea. After all the article reading (and about 60 mins of my life I won’t get back) short answer is: the shorter the shaft, better chance you have of delivering a more consistent strike resulting in (over time) generally more accurate driving results. However, shaft length is only 1 factor in the’d need to consider flex, weight, torque...yadda yadda. Go see a good fitter or teaching pro if you want to test out what it might do for you. I ended up settling on a 44.5” driver length optimized with the other factors. Sacrificed a few yards or so, but overall much better for me than anything longer than 45”. I’ll take more FIRs hit vs 10 yards any day!

Steve Grimwood

Excellent - Never knew the shaft bent forward - Great vlog and more myths exploded. I personally played blades as a kid (only clubs the pro shop had we could afford). Went to Pings for a good few years and recently went back to some Mizuno almost blades. Have to say that none of the clubs have really affected my score, but I much prefer the blades as they just look and feel right at address (to me). I do agree with Mark that distance control is much better as I don’t get the shots that just fly of the club face. I also felt that I couldn’t use the Pings around the green as they didn’t feel right for chipping.

Learnt more about shaft and loft from this than i have in 25 yrs of golf. Point from 10.30 onwards pure gold.

I also thought the question and response was great. I Keep hearing (and seeing vlogs) repeating the myth of MB, and how you need to be a pro to play them or you get drop offs vs game improvement irons. @mark as a suggestion. Can you take the GC quad on course with the face spots, couple that with your drone to show different strike locations vs carries vs eventual finish.

I've just moved to MP 18's. I find I get more feedback from my bad strikes, but I the results aren't what expect, particularly with toe or thin strikes. The carries may alter but I'm still finishing at the distance i wanted. Be good to get facts to support.

Can't stand the paternalism in offsets, where the OEM's 'help' the golfer avoid a slice by building the face back from the shaft. If 90% of all amateurs today still hit a slice, then where's the data on how much they have been 'helped' by the offset? Also, so long as the OEM's build their variety of iron sets with having more offset or less offset (no two different sets from the same manufacturer have the same offsets), where's the actual Iron Byron data on how a larger or smaller offset 'helps' the player hit the ball straighter? Furthermore, if the offset 'helps' the player to avoid slicing, why do 70% of amateur right-handed golfers using putters with a built-in offset miss their putts on the left side of the target line? And if the offset theory is to 'help' the clubface catch up with the shaft handle at high swing speeds, then what in the world is the rationality of making a deliberate, slow putting stroke with a full shaft of offset built into the putter? Offsets in golf are nothing more than the paternalism of priests.

Andy CHASTAIN - 3 years ago
I feel like Dan - offset is too much for me. I played with ping eye twos for at least 10 years. I switched to Titliest CBs which have minimal offset which i love. Offset i think is more mental disturbing to me. I drew the ball more to the right (play left handed). Now, i play a baby fade or more straight ball but have pull shots too much. Lol I should practice more...i may over compensate and dip leading shoulder. #needlessons. :)

Eye-opening info as always. I totally cheated and did not comment before watching, but I would have never made the connection between CG and shaft lean at impact. Also learned something about camera shutters! Cheers bruh :-)
fotgjengerfelt - 3 years ago
Just when I started playing, I had huge trouble with offset, because I aligned the toe with the hosel, in effect making me close the face by a few degrees. When I look at players with offset irons on the range, several of them seem to do exactly the same. That explains why switching will make an actual difference on the ball flight for some players.
Steve Grimwood
Steve Grimwood - 3 years ago
I think it’s supposed to help players (probably most amateurs) who slice/lose the ball to the right. Presumably something along the lines of allowing the club face to have a better chance of being squarer at impact by being slightly later in to the ball and therefore the club is more likely to be rotating/squaring up through the ball - I think!

I enjoyed the vid. I've never understood offset on golf clubs. Used callaway XR's a while ago and started losing the ball even further right than I was already! Switched to srixon Z545's with only a tiny bit of offset and control the ball just fine, well, some of the time (more than the XR's)

Offset is a visual/feel thing for me. I play muscle back/muscle cavity irons that have little to no offset and thin top lines because that is what I prefer to look at. I also love the feel and feedback a more bladed iron provides on all types of strikes.

Hi Mark. Great video. Perhaps you can make a video ( if you not made it already) about the impact of your body anatomy on your golf swing. For example long arms, vs short arms. Etc. would be interested to understand. I saw some sessions of mike Adams about the subject as well. Just wondering if you take this into account while coaching. Thanks!

(Heavy duty) offset means a set of clubs I can't use because I'm officially too daft for em: If I set an offset iron behind the ball so that it looks nice and square, it is actually 5? 7? 10? degrees closed. If I set it up "correctly", it looks wide open to my eyes, I get a knot in my brain
Daniel Stoodley

offset to me means how far offset the face is ti the hosel of the club. I like Dan, I am unable to override offset, i play off 10 and use clubs with little offset.
Elliott Shoup Owens
Elliott Shoup Owens - 3 years ago
Offset for me is the face position of the club down by the ball at address, is it more closed, open, or neutral. Which in turn makes me think about how far left or right the ball may start when struck

Offset clubs are for people who slice their shots.  Fix your swing and you won't need offset clubs.  Also, offset clubs tend to be chunky, and not forged.
Rory Campbell
Rory Campbell - 3 years ago
Offset just means you contact the ball when the shaft is over the ball's centre. Without any offset you make contact when the shaft is pointing at the back of the ball. Putters are sensitive to this, theoretically without offset it goes off line right a bit

I always thought that offset was a way of "helping" golfers with a pronounced slice to get the face a bit more squared at impact, thus turning a slice into a fade/straight shot.

Mike Reed

I have three sets of irons and all of them have some offset in the longer irons and less offset in the shorter clubs. Why would the club companies do this? I have played Pings for years and have never found the offset to help or hinder me in any way. I love my Ping G30 clubs!
Joseph Greenberg
Joseph Greenberg - 3 years ago
Mike Reed as Mark said in vlog, offset is design element to get the ball to launch higher. Most players need that help with their longer irons. Manufacturers have also found that most amateurs miss toward the toe, and offset gives added leverage to stabilize those strikes. Third reason is that most handicap players tend to fade their longer irons, and offset provides for centrifugal force to bring to toe around slightly faster to offset the fade.

I didn't know what it was really but I does not seem to influence anything with me I like the look but I equally like clubs with no off set

To me offset is there to try to help people who slice the ball and to encourage a slight forward lean of the shaft to aid with negative AoA.
David Malfara
David Malfara - 3 years ago
I always felt that more offset gave you a slightly better chance at a hands-forward delivery for a better strike, but it seems like a player should be able to override that through setup. I guess I’m really not sure what the advantage would be.

I'm a 14hcap and have recently changed from a game improving iron with offset to Mizuno blades with hardly any offset because I tried a mates blades and liked them.
I still hit the same amount of good and bad shots and at no point have I thought "That would've been a really good shot if I had 4mm of offset" The reason I hit a bad shot is because I've hit a bad shot!!

Sean Malyon

I find it difficult to correctly align an offset club at address. If I square the blade to target at address, the club just doesn't feel right in my hands. It's as though there is a disconnect between the face of the club and my hands.

I use offset Driver... woods and rescues it has changed my game for the better. I use Cobra and Cleveland who understand how to help the older player.  I've lost maybe 15 yards off my Taylormade Driver but now hardly miss a Fairway. the offset Cleveland Mashies are an awesome rescue club and allow me to hit 180-200 every time. Golf is a game that you need confidence in to improve and to score well, offset gives me that confidence.  Good video on an important subject Mark.   As always though get fitted!

For me, offset helps me square my face through impact, sometimes maybe a little to much though. With a mixed set, I have a 52 with quite a lot of offset and I almost always miss it to the left which needs to be taken into account when gaming it. But to be honest, it doesn't mean that much to me. Now, on with the video.. :)

went ping i15 with offset and chunky looks to some beautiful unused 2nd hand mizuno mp62. Score the same, distance stays relatively the same (only short rather than long) depending on my strike.

I disagree. I have two sets of clubs Mizuno ez forge for when I don’t play on a regular basis and a set of MP-33 from when I was a legit 2 handicap. Even today as a sometimes 8 handicap I can shoot better scores and maintain better distance control with cavity back.
Brad Heaton
Brad Heaton - 3 years ago
Offset supposedly provides more time (milliseconds?) to close the face, but I haven't found that to be the case at least for me. I'm no more likely to hit it left or right with less or more offset. I think that more offset would move the centre of gravity back further from the centre of the shaft, but whether that would promote higher flight, etc. I don't know.

Chris mcneil
Chris mcneil - 3 years ago
In players irons there is less offset so I'm pretty sure that when you lean the shaft the face opens unless you know how to square the face with your wrists, body & swing plane.
François Desmoulins-Lebeault
François Desmoulins-Lebeault - 3 years ago
The thing with offset is that to the eye they look "open" at address even when they're not, so you're tempted to close them, and then, bim... more likely than not your gentle little draw turns into a nasty hook. But that's only when you don't really pay attention.
I played for quite some times with an offset set and I was OK fading and drawing when I wanted to. It's those shots where you don't really have any sort of defined flight shape in mind, don't really think of the shape, that might turn too much left on you.
But I'm 90% convinced it's a mind thing coming from an optical illusion.

As for the "helps put the ball in the air more", I've always had a rather "towering" ball flight, and nothing does change that very much. Offset or no offset, S300 or light low flex point shafts, still the same to a degree.

Still... they don't really look that good, all these offset clubs.
Chris mcneil
Chris mcneil - 3 years ago
Offset to me is for higher handicappers to get in a better position at impact of hands forward & an ability to square the face faster through impact. For people who do not like a shut face at address offset is not desirable.
