According to PurelyGolf.com, "since the 1930's, golfers have been paying attention to weight and using a concept describing the feel of a club's (dynamic) weight, "swing-weight." Golfers, like any other athlete, try to attain a competitive advantage. In most cases, equipment provides such an advantage so that golfers will work and consult with manufacturers to achieve advantageous results on the golf course.
