I didn't see how old this thread was, but I noticed the tennis comparison and I agree, being a former tennis player. Heavy racquets hit the ball harder and it should be the same for golf clubs. Even more so. I have sensed, when hitting light drivers, the head stopping slightly at impact. In other words, losing speed. Heavier drivers don't give me that feel, just a power through the ball. Heavier irons, whether heavier in shaft or head will not give that slight slow down...
I don't know if this will be useful, but I play in the northwest and this time of year it's very heavy air and sometimes cold, and wet fairways with some mud. My driver I prefer to hit semi-low, a callaway razr fit extreme, so I turn to driving with my 3 wood and seven wood and actually outdrive my foursome because of air time with the higher lofts. Got a good bounce with my seven this week and drove it 240. Something to think about when considering distance.
I swore by prov1's, and posted it. Last week, playing with my hickories and hitting a Wilson duo I was flat no roll stopping it with my niblick(9iron) and it has no grooves at all. Saying ditch the expensive balls.
Just kidding. It's our normal foursome answer. Average good hit for driver is, with summer roll, 250, seven iron 160, pw 110. If I was serious about golf I would have to quit.
Driver 140, 3 iron 150, 4 iron 150, 5 iron 150, 6 iron 150, 7 iron 150, 8 iron 150, 9 iron, on a good day, 160. pw 110. Although I am normally a little more consistant.
Yep. Something you might find interesting regarding shafts....I am also a hickory player, and hickory shafts can be super stiff. So there may be nothing new under the golf sun. In fact sometimes when I finish a hickory round I think we may have taken a step backward..............way to advanced by half. I can get huge distance from some of my irons on a particular hickory shaft. Makes golf the most interesting game by far.
This is an old thread, but I just went back to my old 1996 big bertha irons. For me the best feeling, most accurate irons I've ever played. That would include Pings, Wilson blades, newer Callaways, and Hogans. Knock downs, working, high spin. For me the best.
Everyone is different but I would say the G15. Not as long as some. I have a couple low handicap friends who also swear by Ping G15. I use the stock stiff shaft, but shaft flex is very important.
To go 180 degrees who I really like are Couples, any Irish golfer, Jim Furyk but mostly his caddy, and anybody with the guts to hang in there on any tour when it's tough and not looking good.
I cheer on Nick Faldo and root against Jim Nance. How about fewer interviews with guys you met in car washes, fraternity brothers, people who nobody knows.
