We used to have a PGA Tour event at our club from 1963-1980 and three players set the course record at 63 (none in the tournament proper, all in the Pro-Am). Steve Wheatcroft, who has had a tour card on and off for the last ten years, visited a friend who is a member and tied the course record of 63 two years ago. The course is about 400 yards longer than it was in 1980 and it's a tough track with a 73.9 rating and a 142 slope from the tips, but the one shortcoming is the overall length. I fear, if those guys today got a couple of cracks at it and figured out the greens, that 60 would be in peril.
I would say that the M1 and M2 would be a more lower spinning driver. Now how the fits into your swing is another matter. It really depends on how the driver fits your swing.
I would say go get fit for a new driver. There you can compare your driver versus the new drivers. I do not personally know the difference. I haven't tested the two side by side.
Aim for the green with the wedge and short irons
Aim for the flag with the mid-long irons
I know that sounds counterintuitive but it seems to work for me. From 60-110 yards out if I focus on getting the ball in the green I can be more specific about what part of the green to land and kick/roll to the flag with knowledge of the contour of the green
From 130+ yards out to about 220 its more difficult to see the exact outline of the green so sometimes the flag is the only clue to aim for and it forces me to hit the high by aiming at a target above the green
My current driver is an R11 which has to be 5 or 6 years old at this point. I'm wondering how my driver compares with current drivers on the market such as M1 or M2. I played in college and average probably 280 yards off the tee. I'm starting to think I'm missing out on distance and or forgiveness with what Taylormade now has available. Any advice/suggestions are welcome, thanks guys!
