good post. anytime this distance debate comes about, everybody flocks to the safe saying "i'd rather have accuracy than distance".
Sure, accuracys important but if you're neglective the importance of distance, you're lieing to yourself. on a 425 yard hole, a short hitter hits his driver 220 yards...which leaves him with 200 yards to go. He hits a 3 wood (which is also not the easiest club to hit), whos to say it doesn't end up in the rough? Long iron/wood approach shot adds for less accurate shots, just as a tee shot is.
I use the 909F in both 3w and 5w and absolutely love it. Switched over last year from one that I had used for a couple years, which is the Callaway X-Tour Fairway wood. Both are great fairway woods imo.
only time i've used the driver without a tee was when my ball was lieing 1-2 inches in rough above the ground. The thick grass elevated the ball up a bit, as if the ball was teed up. Hit the driver low and the ball was right back on the fairway!
did we watch the same video? because the clinic video i watched, AK was great. He explained a lot of his ideas on "feel". Sure he had a hard time explaining some thigns because he relies so much on his feel, but overall, I thought that clinic was actually great.
Likewise, the eipsode of Playiong Lessons With the Pro's with AK was a great one.
more than likely, you're hitting the ball thin with the leading edge of the driver, causing the ball to swing forward instead of backspin. Could be a number of things but my guess is that you're trying too hard to swing up at the ball, causing your driver to hti the ball on the way up, hitting the ball with the leading edge.
what is your driver stance like? Where is the ball located in relation to your left and right foot?
well for discussion sake, we're talking about SC's here, not other brands. SC's of all putters have the most fan-boy-esq following. You find it in any staple fan boy's golf bag. the Newport 2 specifically.
again, i'm not saying everyone who uses the Newport 2 is a fan boy... but i'm saying there is a huge following of people who use the Newport 2, not because of its "feel" and "performance" but because they're so popular.
