    I was really "working" my driver yesterday, left , right, left , right, left , right....... really pleased that the found balls from the shag bag were in play. Were being the key factor. something clicked on back nine and I couldn't miss a fairway. Perhaps my gyroscope just was re calibrating...

    I'm a 12.4 that works the driver right and left as the hole dictates. Get it right maybe 70% of the time. I'm a 12.4 because my GIR is 2 for 9 because of my sloppy lazyass swing that I'm fixing.

    So yeah. Can you work that club if you set the dildo to neutral / straight?

    Ha! Not sure if I should laugh or cry after taking my 4 iron out of my bag AND looking at replacing it and the 5 iron with a 24° Hybrid. Love my 19, though. 1st it was the 2 & 3 and now this!

    If you need to "work" a drive use three wood. Goal with driver trajectory is eliminate as much spin as possible so adding spin just defeats the purpose of hitting it. Any club can be worked.

    Fore! Who's playing golf, yo-

    Consider cutting the shaft if it is 45. Start with 1/2 inch.

    Yes

    Nobody under 6-4 should be using 45" driver. I'm 6-2 and use 44.5. You'll hit club center more often and actually gain considerable avg distance.

    Pros typically play 44-44.5 drivers for reference, but they retail at 45-46 so they can claim longer distance
    If it's green, smoke it...if it's pink, poke it

    Yep. At one point, I could hit a 2i off the tee and played my 3i off turf. Age and lack of playing time...

    Last 10 years to now? Not even a 4i. Have a 10-year old Tour Edge Exotics XCG ti 4H (21*). Love that thing.

    Thinking about something like these MP-20 HMBs for a 5-iron. 25*. Can’t find a 5H I like.

    Interesting. I just ordered a used 913H 24 to test drive and hoping it complements the 19° that just works well for me.

    Kinda like washing the car, this order just generated a shift in the weather and we're now expecting over one to two feet of snow. You can thank me later this week.

    Sometimes not laying up gets a better score. I had a partner in a 4 ball match play league for a few years who was a 18 HC and short off the tee. 4th hole at Webster West. 350 yd 4 par with a pond in front of the green. A layup leaves 120 to dry land, 140 to the green. Drop area is on the greenside of the pond. He'd lay up and then hit into the pond from 125. Every time. So I told him "Stop laying up. Hit your 2nd shot into the drink. Take a drop and save 1 stroke every time." Turned his 8's into 7's and 7's into 6's.

    Fun partner with a great attitude. The summer that his daughter was getting married the future son in law was indicted by the feds along with his father and brother in a mortgage scam the dad was running with his home building business. When I asked my partner why I hadn't gotten any wedding invite he said with a laugh "If you weren't indicted, you're not invited." The SIL got off, his brother and dad went to prison and it cost my partner a fortune.

    It's all about the danger of the miss. If there isn't any trouble other than bunkers I'm going for it every time. If I could get in any trouble that could cost me a stroke I'm laying up to 100. Worst case from there is a par for me.

    Greenside bunkers don't scare me at all. Water from 250 does

    Plus, I carry a 5W and no 3W so if it's a long par 5 and I'm left with 275+, the risk of missing vs reward of still being short doesn't make any sense.

    Good for you. Makes sense. My partner was an 18 HC with a 125yd 7 iron. Maybe. My "Get it wet quick" advice lead to a lower score.

    The snow arrived as did the club. The head is in very good shape and came with new grip & shaft. I was expecting a stiff shaft to complement my others vs this Tensei DK Series 70HY Flex-R. My irons (including the 4 &/or 5 being replaced) have Aldila Green NV Hybrid 105 MLTi Pro-S shafts. My 3-Wood & 19° Hybrid have Phenom HYB 80 2.5 S.

    How different will the Flex-R shaft be compared to my current array? I'm not trying to add more variables to my already inconsistent game.

    If you're playing S flex shafts now and they seem good stay away from R flex. I always recommend going as stiff as your swing can handle. Stiffer = tighter dispersion

    One of the biggest shortcomings of the golf industry is only selling R and S flex as stock offerings. Most good, strong golfers belong in an X flex but don't know it because of what's marketed

    Golf shafts are so difficult to choose from. There's 100s of options out there and all perform so differently. It's all about experimenting and learning how specs relate to feel and performance (butt flex, tip flex, mid flex, torque, weight, etc)
