MOI is moment of inertia, and this is basically the Golf club heads resistance to twisting. It applies to woods and drivers. When you hit a golf ball, the weight of the golf ball causes the quickly open and close many times. The more resistant the club head is to twisting the straighter the clubface will stay and obviously the straighter the ball will go.
