I enjoy reading them but I take them with a gain of salt. Basically I find that every review says the club hits further then last year, how can that be?? As said above you really need to be on a launch monitor to get some accurate numbers, but then I worry about the launch monitors in the stores, how accurate are they, do the amp them up to give you better numbers? Bottom line for me is I hit my older drivers as far and as accurate as my newer driver, I guess their hyping the club works.
When I saw the stance he was taking in the bunker, and how steep he had to swing, and what looked like a lie on the downslope, the first thought I had was that personally I would go out sideways or backward, because I would totally thin it over the green, or leave it in the bunker. Of course, PGA Tour players are miles better than me out of bunkers.
My compressor is at 90-100 psi, which is what I use for my finish nailers. It's never been a problem before installing/removing Pure grips. I rewatched the installation video on the website and there is no pressure recommendation. I found an older video which recommends 60-120 psi.
I hold the grip lightly and do one quick burst which instantly loosens the grip, and then a couple more and it pops off. This time the bottom of the grip was completely stuck - I had to manually squeeze air from the ballooned upper part to loosen the bottom enough to pull it off.
I emailed Pure to see if I did something wrong, or if it was possibly a defective grip. My hypothesis is that the lower part of the grip with less taper holds onto the shaft more tightly than the upper part due to thicker rubber, and at least in this case, this caused the air to take the path of least resistance, which was unfortunately blowing up my grip like a balloon.
You are getting close to my area. Cascades, Calderone and Grande are all nice courses. I am not sure the Grande allows walking. I think their rates include the cart but maybe you can walk and just pay for the cart. Cascades is a good walking course. Calderone is a bit more of a chore with some distance between tee and next green.
Thanks for posting this. I immediately thought of Jon Rahm who has a short backswing, but seems to get his hands moving fast very early.
In trying to get into a good impact position with hips and shoulders rotated without putting a bunch of stress on my lead knee, I have opened my stance. This has limited my backswing, which was a concern I had in being able to create clubhead speed.
I am thinking I can open my stance a bit and still get decent clubhead velocity.
