I am exactly like you and I am taking weekly lessons. It was very 3ducational to get fitted. They can tell you what length and grip size you need regardless of your swing accuracy. That will help you. Go for it
I'm on the fence on this one. I like the idea of hearing Tiger/Phil/etc. advising how to play a shot, etc. but other than that it is a game show. I liked The Big Break but that was not hackers and part of it was hoping to see someone go from obscure person to potentially a big-name pro. I can watch hackers any day at any course. Please understand, that if I were selected to play I would be 100% on board.
Yesterday I hit a beautiful sand wedge into a par 5 and it is obvious that it will be stiff for a birdie. But it bounces a foot from the hole, hits the pin, bouncing 12 feet away. I miss the putt, make par and half the hole. Very next hole, my opponent and I are both about 15 yards short of the green. I hit a great pitch to five feet. My opponent totally bones his pitch and it's headed off the back of the green. But it bounces once and flies in the cup for a birdie. My putt doesn't even matter now. I hate when that happens.
Anyone else got one?
Several have said this and I don’t disagree, however, I think I understand where he’s coming from. Try and imagine you’re him and you brain farted and did that, how would you react? You know you’re not playing, you know you did this entirely on your own and the player had no clue. You aren’t his friend, or dad, or coach and you just met the guy a couple days ago most likely. Admitting you committed a penalty then and there guarantees this kid loses the match - wouldn’t you also be frantically trying to figure a way out for that kid to have a chance to keep playing? I get it.
Curious what the caddie would have to say right now that it’s done though. 🙂
Nothing better than to try it yourself!
So I played 12 holes on a local shortish course with two balls: Callaway Supersoft and Callaway SR2 (the one I usually play).
To be honest, I could not see a definite difference in distance.
What I did see somewhat systematically was that Supersoft was straighter, especially from tee.
The only advantage I could find with SR2 was that I got more backspin. I had a few wedges spinning back towards me, but none with Supersoft.
This was of course not a scientifical experiment, and not that many shots. So take it for what it's worth...
