PGA Show Day 1: What is MOI?

One of the most talked about phrases on the PGA Show floor on day 1 is Moment of Inertia and how it relates to golf equipment. Nearly every company is touting numbers and it’s role in accuracy for the golfer, but what does it really mean? Before getting into the products themselves, we thought this would be a great way to kick off Day 1 after hearing the marketing across the show floor.

Here is Michael Vrska, for THP TV, explaining what MOI is, how it impacts golf equipment and what it means to the actual golfer.

The THP Forum has a live update thread from the show floor, that can be found here. Everything we see, you will see and if you have questions, ask them right there.

Join us all week long as we cover the equipment in a way that is bold, new and a whole lot of fun.
