Journey to the Worlds: Interview with Shaft Maker Bob Kent
All golf club shafts are not created equal.

A few years ago a new shaft company called “House of Forged” burst on the long drive scene and proceeded to notch a win in the World Long Drive Championship. I got a chance to experiment with House of Forged shafts and there’s no denying the quality and reliability. I have them in a couple of long drive clubs, and I use House of Forged in my playing driver.
A short while ago the founder of House of Forged, Robert Kent, paid a visit to my office (the range) to work with some of our local long drivers. I grabbed Bob for an impromptu interview. Bob is very knowledgeable and articulate, and I think you’ll find his insights thought-provoking.
