The golf shaft is the part of the golf club that is glued and fit inside the golf club head. The shaft is the long and skinny piece that has a grip installed on it. Back in 1603 in the UK, one man had the exclusive license to make golfs clubs. They were made out of wood, mostly ash and hazel due to its rigid nature. Later on a Scottish club maker by the name of Robert Forgan, imported a hickory wood from America to start using on shafts. Shortly after that, around the late 1890's, the idea of using steel shafts was launched. The ban on them was lifted by the Prince of Wales after he used a set at St. Andrews in 1929. Graphite was finally ushered into the game in 1973 followed by many materials such as boran to reduce the club head twisting.
