Do you just have it cut down or does that screw up the flex points and other physics of the shaft such that to properly do it you have to buy a new shaft in the shorter length and attach that to your club face?   I have a Callaway XHot2 that I got fitted for at PGA Superstore but am now taking lessons and pro says it's too long.  It is a good 1.5" longer than my old driver and I find I tend to choke up on it anyway.   Thanks in advance for your advice.
Sounds like you're lucky that guy didn't have a gun.
I can't play Pro v1 because I've ready so many freaking posts about them and who should hit them and who shouldn't, and spin rates and swing speeds that as soon as I tee one up I'm flooded with swing thoughts, get paralyzed and inevitably hook or slice it.    
After a couple of 91's recently, I blasted through at last.  Shot a 39 on the front and was so far ahead that even doubles on 17 and 18 couldn't stop me from an 86!  It was drizzling when we started too which lead to the obligatory Carl Spackler quotes "I don't think the real heavy stuff is going to come down for a while yet.." etc.   Sure enough we got to 6 and I was at even par for the round.  Rain really started coming down and the wind picked up. We were waiting in...
Six was just a train wreck.  Yanked my drive left on the hillside by those traps on the left of the fairway.   Got too excited on the second shot with a hybrid trying to get it all back in one swing and topped it twenty yards.   Then hit the hybrid well to about a third of the way up the hill.  Had a completely blind shot for the 4th on which I hit a 5 iron up and over the hill and landed about twenty yards left of the green.  Chipped on and two putted for 7.  Not my...
Played Pebble Beach for the first time this weekend.  I have been fortunate enough to play Spyglass before and Spanish Bay twice but this was the first time at the Big Kahuna.   I have seen some other threads debating the relative "value" or "worth" of the green fee so I'll skip that and just say that while, absurdly expensive by any measure, I value experiences above all else you can acquire with money, and I will forever remember the day.  Speaking only for me (and...
Been struggling with the driver for months.  Multiple lessons, practice, etc.  I got fitted for irons last summer (JPX 825) and have loved them but had an RBZ (first gen) driver and didn't think I needed a new one.     After fighting the driver though for months while the rest of my game has slowly improved, I went and got fitted at PGA Superstore (The RBZ was a gift and not fitted for me).  In any case, the RBZ had a stiff shaft and my swing speed hovers high 80's to...
Agree with all of these.  Will add how nice it is to play 2 some or 3 some whenever you want without being paired.  That also factors into pace of play.    I joined a country club because it was less than 5 minutes from my front door.  The ability to leave my house at 6:45, play 18 and be home before 10 a.m. is priceless. The initiation fee + monthly/rounds played will NEVER pencil out but it's all about how much value you place on the convenience, access, relationships...
Whether they are cheap or expensive is up to you and your budget.  I will say though that I've found it helpful to have a pair dedicated just for golf.  I think golf is pretty hard on them.  I get a lot of sunscreen on them and I'm also forever switching between having them on and putting them up on the brim of my hat when, for example, you move onto a shaded green and want to see the contour of the green better and that sort of thing.  I keep my metal framed, more...
I just went through the same thing.  Broke 100 for first time in 2012, got really into it in 2013 and bought new clubs a few months ago.     I read the reviews and forums and so forth and had some ideas about what to buy, but in the end I think there is only one way to do this:  go someplace where you can try a bunch of clubs with a bunch of shafts and hit, hit, hit.  I though I was going to get the Callaway X Hot or the Taylormades based on reviews but ultimately bought...
