16 posts in this topic

Ok so just a question.. I hit my driver very very high. It's a cobra amp and also same thing with my 3 wood another cobra amp. Could it be because the shaft? If so what are some good shafts for hitting low

Are these center of the face hits? Could be your swing, How high is it teed up, where in your stance is the ball? you could simply just be hitting on the up. For good shafts look at the Enzo Zolo HL4 or also the RT Technologies Zeus LT.

Yes in the center and tee it up low so when I put the club next to the ball it's lined up to the center of the face. It's on my the inside of my left foot

move the ball back so you aren't catching it on the upswing?

it's recommended the ball be placed in line with the left heel... as far as all the reading, and watching I've encountered indicates.

I'm not a teaching pro so maybe someone with a little more experience with this could help but a cast could also cause a high launch.

But this just started happening when I got this driver that's why I'm wondering if it's the shaft

Is the loft the same? If all else is the same then shaft is the only thing left...

Actually a lower loft. Use to have a 10.5 but down to 9.5. I have a fast swing speed. Was just wondering if this happens to anyone else

You may have a low bend point in shaft which translates to higher ball flight.

I purchased a prolaunch red shaft for my driver because I was having the same problem and it has help a lot. I went with that shaft on a recommendation from someone on this site and it did exactly what it says it does. Besides it was only $49 which was sweet. At that price I figured it would be worth a try.

Ditto, I have the ProLaunch Red with an Adams adjustable head on it set to 10*. The shaft plays a bit stiffer and has a high kickpoint which means your fulcrum will be a bit higher in the shaft. My driver swingspeed is about 105, regular flex shaft, and I've been averaging about 270 with a nice boring trajectory and a fair amount of roll. Shaft in your driver means alot, high kick point ,stiff tip will generally be a shaft with a lower flight.

"Shaft in your driver means a lot, high kick point ,stiff tip will generally be a shaft with a lower flight."

I just bought very clean and cheap Mizuno TZoid bore thru driver with 12* loft. And, too bad, a L shaft. Ain't bad but really sends the ball high so i gotta change the shaft. Since i gather that the bore thru also leads to somewhat stiffer response and i want a lower flight, should i look for a the high kick and stiff tip? I'll be going for a R flex, SS probably 95.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
