If your swing speed is 100 mph, your distance potential could be as high as 270 yards.

## What happens if your shaft is too stiff?

Two Main Effects of a Too-Stiff Golf Shaft Stiff shafts tend to impact distance, resulting in shorter distance. A shaft that is too stiff will absorb the force of the swing, which affects the timing of the transference of energy from the club to the ball at impact. The ball tends to fly lower, which impacts distance.
