Golfers can modify the mass and moment of inertia (MoI) of their driver. The influence of these changes on golfers’ unique centre of pressure and centre of gravity movement patterns were investigated. The patterns between the control and High Mass condition showed small differences to the High MoI and combined high MoI/Mass condition which may be similar to results seen in running footwear literature with substantial changes to shoe characteristics.
