Abstract
In the part I of the present investigation we found that the torsional compliance of the shaft does not play an important role on the direction of take off of the ball. In the part II we have investigated the effect of conditions of impact on the ball flight varying impact points and the surface conditions of the iron head using high speed photography. When the impact point is higher than the center of gravity of the head the face angle becomes several percent larger after impact and vice versa. The effects of surface roughness and scoring of the face are not so significant.
