Am Senior Player coming back from long layoff. Have a Big Bertha Driver and irons 5-AW.

My son in law is a huge Callaway fan and gave a me gift certificate for a  Callaway Driver/FW wood.

Am looking at the Mavrik FW wood but a little concerned I am not yet ready for the club

Feedback appreciated

You know you could give the new Callaway Big Bertha B21 FW a look. You can get it with a lightweight 45g shaft. It's supposed to be a little easier to hit than the Mavrik. It might be similar to the Mavrik Max. For a senior player you might try the 5W version of both and see which one you like better.

I agree, getting out and trying them is your best bet. Pretty much every club made by major OEMs is going to be really good at this point, so without knowing anything about your swing or delivery, it's hard to say whether you would be a good match for a certain club. Find somewhere you can hit them both and figure out which one you prefer in terms of feel/looks/performance.

I'd go hit a few with a fitter or a golf pro. I like the idea of a 5FW, personally. But I have a friend who hits his 4HY farther than I can hit my 5FW. And in truth my Miz Fli-Hi's are probably better for me than the FW. Anyway, go hit a few, realize you are probably better at golf than you think and get the most club you and a fitter think you can handle. Otherwise, can I have the gift certificate? Best, -Marv

    • Simply the best! Muirfields
    • Thanks guys, yeah that is definitely something to consider if I go down that route about the pairing and tags for sure @Missouri Swede.
    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]  
    • Another cold day where it didn't get above 50 during the round. Played the outside (Hills at Community) 45-46-91. 4 pars offset by 4 doubles and a triple, the rest being bogeys. Only two 7s on the card which is good by me, just can't get back into the 80s. Iron play was as good as yesterday, if not better. Driver was keeping the ball in play which helps too. Just some poor 3 wood shots that really hurt me, one being a full top that went 5 yards in front of me. Glad that Ohio weather hasn't shut me down all the way yet. This also marked my 60th round played at my home courses for the year. I've probably played 80 total though because my courses were closed for the first 2 months of Covid.
    • Pushing club out further. Can really feel all my ribs..:-)
