Discovering the Maltby Playability Factor

At my lesson earlier this week, my pro and I got to talking about my impending (read: wish list) future equipment upgrades. I trust Mike, so I was genuinely interested in his opinion of my current clubs, in the context of how they fit and work for me, and more importantly, what I should be…
