The terminology “hitting the ball on the screws” has been around for a long time. It originated back when brass and steel screws were inserted into the face of a wooden golf club.

The screws held the club face insert in place.

The ball traveled further when struck within the screw pattern; many golfers use that terminology today.

If you are one of those golfers that give putts within the leather, that terminology originated when all putter grips were made of leather.
