    • Great idea, Erik. Will give this a go tomorrow, but high shots definitely aren't in my comfort zone!  Looking forward to these getting more and more ridiculous. Maybe next month will see 'Flop shot catch off hardpan', 'Make par on a par 5 using only a sand wedge' or 'Escape a bunker with a putter'... 
    • A lot of them teach or stay involved somehow. Some enjoy retirement and some pick up other hobbies or jobs out of golf.
    • I don't like to hassle with returning things and trying to get a refund. I knew up front that it was probably not for me but I was hoping for the best. It is a good club for a beginner or a high handicapper.
    • Also landed here from google. I also have this in my left shin. I don't have any new injuries and noticed this yesterday. There's no pain, just numbness over the whole area of my left shin. It's numb to the touch, but otherwise feels normal. I do kickboxing and my personal trainer has been doing boxing endurance training with me occasionally. Last week we did leg exercises on the gym machines for hamstrings and quads, and then we did resistance band walks the following session. The numbness seems to have appeared sometime since then.   The feeling is the same as I felt in my chest after collar bone surgery, which severed the nerves that connect the skin over the top half of the pectoral muscle.   I did have knee surgery on this leg but that was over a decade and a half ago, and everything has been fine.
    • Why not just send it back and get your refund?..Spending $200 on a "starter driver" seems expensive, from my perspective.... That all said, I'm very happy with my GX-7. I've got 10 rounds in with it so far and it isn't leaving my bag. They tell you right up front that it isn't going to win in a head to head distance competition with your driver. The point is that you'll hit it an acceptable distance (think 2 wood), but will be in play a lot more than with your driver. That's why they tell you to do the "averages test". Play a full round with your driver and measure EVERY driver shot (even the ones you dribble off the tee or slice into the nearby pond). Then play the same course with the GX-7 and measure your distances. That's what they mean when they say you'll be "consistently longer" with the GX-7.  If you're like me, your distances with the GX-7 will be averaged as longer than the driver.  If you can keep your driver in play on most every hole, then the GX-7 really isn't for you anyway. You aren't the target audience.
