Because of size limitations of uploads, and having a 13MP camera phone. I will have to do this blog in several parts. Sorry in advance.

Tonight we'll start with the Driver and 4-wood.

Driver: Tour Edge Exotics EX10 with a Project X HZDRUS Yellow 6.0 that plays at 44".  I chose the 10° model.0315180231.thumb.jpg.1539d1a9da1a60c35f28aceb55fa0a42.jpg0315180231a.thumb.jpg.e59308dc856d792f746a45887f808078.jpg0315180232.thumb.jpg.c24065272ba5c62077127554d417d071.jpg

I went with a 44" length for two reasons, I am 6'5", and should play 45.5" or so, but I would rather have more consistent strikes. Second, I have distance to spare. So that's why.

It has a Lamkin UTX grip +1/8".

4-wood: Tour Edge Exotics CBX 16.5°. Same shaft as driver, playing at 42". Lamkin Z5 grip +1/8"

Again the reason for the shorter shaft is consistency of strike.

Tomorrow, I will do a hybrid and irons blog, so basically it's a teaser with the Driver & 4-wood.

    • I saw this on msn and it makes me bristle. I have been a fan of golf all of my life. Watching Palmer, Nicklaus, Snead, etc play, along with my natural inability to hit the damn ball, made me appreciate how tough, and how satisfying it is to succeed in making par. I was impressed by the guys on my high school and later college teams who played the game. Later in life I finally picked it up and got serious about learning the game so now I can enjoy the game, camaraderie of other golfers, and the beautiful courses all across the country I have the privilege of playing. The media, however, seems to want to create fans of golfers, not golf. These two talking heads are bummed out that Rory did not win the Open. They are insisting that golf needed Rory to win. I disagree. Golf does not need anyone to win, because someone will win. Golf needs people to appreciate the game, the strategy involved, the skill to execute it and the beauty of the courses. It is impressive that a Nicklaus, Woods, DJ, etc can win at a high rate. But it is also impressive to me just to see experts doing what they do best. I think this is being overlooked by the media to the detriment of the game. These golfers are experts, and what they do should be appreciated in its own right. Not striving to glorify one person to create fans. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/golf/shane-lowry-wins-open-championship/vi-AAEHkQR?ocid=spartanntp

    • What a great statement! And your whole post was UPLIFTING for this old golfer, whose HCP has slipped in the past few years. Thank you! Best, -Marv
    • I have been golfing since I was 13, and now I just turned 65. I love the game.I am never satisified completely with my game like everyone. We all want to hit it farther. My handicap even at my age still hovers around a couple over par, but also this handicap is only for my home course which is quite simple. My driver carry, (and I do mean actual carry), has went from 275 yards down to right around 200 yards. I actually play with gentleman who tell me that they driver they can hit around the 240 mark, but they always seem to be a bit behind me. Because of my drop in actual length off the tee, and still to be able to hold my handicap down, I have learned more in the course management cataglory. Be a more consistant driver, stay out of the woods, dont try to hit shots that even the great Arnold Palmer could not do, and be a better than average golfer around the green. I mean to be a better chipper, and even a better putter than most. I probably devote 75% of my time practice putting. I don't mean to just go onto a practice green and just start putting but I really concentrate on my stroke. I like to find a straight putt, and work my way from like 2 foot out to 10 feet, and for the most part be able to make these putts. You do not have to be a strong muscular guy to be able to putt good. One of the biggest things I have learned about putting is not the putter, nor the kind of ball you putt with, but more that little 5 inches that lies between your ears.This I call the CONFIDENCE FACTOR!! When I am inside 3 feet, I do not miss much. I am not saying that I dont miss, but I am more concerned about making the putt, than at missing it. Usually being worried about missing a putt leads to leaving the ball just less than one turn from going in to pushing or pulling the putt. Yes, I do miss three footers, but I do know that my chances of me making it are much greater than me missing it.
