By the way, I'm not doubting your results. I'm just curious how you know it's 16 yards? and if you were fit for the old gamer because I'm wondering if and when that kind of a jump in yardage could be available to the rest of us.
Sorry, didn't realize there was 40 something pages on this.
I vote no also.
I've always thought it was weird to even suggest that it should be. I mean where does it all end? What's next? If a ball takes an odd bounce are we going to move it to "where it would have been if not for the odd bounce?"
10 years ago I tried a new driver on demo day at the range. Seemed to be crushing it. Bought it and gained 20-25 yards over the old driver which was 6 years old. Yes Typhoon, it was exhilarating and DeChambeau-empowering to hit from forward spots I'd never played from before.
Nearly 50 PGA Touring pros began playing the same driver that same year. Guess they noticed the extra distance I was getting. 😁
Day 61 (Mar 08, 2021) - Today was "bounce" back Monday. Got in the yard, temps in the 50's and worked the bounce of the 58 wedge. Again using the sawhorses as the target zone. Went two methods - pitching it short using the bounce to get the ball "near" and letting it roll through the leg gates, second - a little tougher - pitching it over the sawhorse but landing before the hole to roll in. The horse is set about 6' out so there is room to land and roll. Was a lot of fun and makes working the bounce a real challenge to get the proper flight.
