Re: What does "tour model" really mean?

If 13 (or 12, anyway) clubs that you own don't have draw bias (weighting and a closed face), and you develop a swing that hits a nice little cut or whatever with those 12 clubs, a left-weighted, left-faced club throws a severe monkey wrench into the works.
No clubs are really fade biased (even the Callaway Tour drivers that are fade biased are barely so), so "learning to not hit it right" is not the same as "this club makes me go left."
George will have a review of the Cleveland HiBore XLS driver soon - same thing. He really should have gotten the "Tour" model. He has to guard against the lefts. And yet his friend who slices loves the thing and hits it nice and straight. His other 12 clubs still slice, though. Maybe he slices his putter, too, I dunno.
