I went to the course for the first time with my new Big Bertha Irons and Big Bertha 460. I played my irons very well, but had a wicked bad time with the driver... hard slices to the left (im lefty). My putting was also suspect but I'm going to blame my putter . Overall i was happy with my play considering this was my first time out in about 6 or 7 years.

Any tips on how to straighten out my Driver?

I love my set and I love the driver as well. Without seeing your swing and setup, make sure you've got the ball far enough forward. What causes your slice is probably the face of the club being open at impact vs square. Moving your stance a little forward may be all the adjustment you need. But do yourself a favor, go out to the driving range and work on it and analyze what is happening during your swings. If you don't feel comfortable with that approach, by all means seek advise from a professional instructor. In most cases they will see things that you wouldn't be able to for a hundred rounds.

Good luck and let us know how you progress. A year ago I maxed out at a 36.4 HC index, today I'm at a 26.8 and am still improving.

I got a BB460 this year and I have been having some slicing issues too. It is me though and not the club. There are lots of threads already discussing how to fix your slice, just do a search.

Light grip,make sure your turning your shoulders and not over swinging and brace that left leg so you don't go back with the club on your back swing.

    • Are you allowed to get electronic putting help during a round?  If you had asked me this a few days ago, I'd have guessed no, but it's in the USGA's app.
    • So here we have vaccines available for COVID and people are hesitant for multiple reasons and misinformation from political leaders, celebrities, athletes, etc. But everyday people take prescribed and over the counter medications for what ever sickness they may have. Side effects from these medications are on the label.  Commercials everyday on television advertise this and that for skin conditions, headaches, aches and pains and each state a disclaimer “….if irritation or nausea or blah, blah blah appears or persists contact your doctor”. They gladly take these medications for what ails them, but won’t take a shot for a virus that can kill them! Just amazing.
    • I saw something about a paid version with putting help and green heat maps.   Definitely looks interesting.  
    • His excuse is several months out of date.  I understand the hesitation for a lot of people from something injected into you.  My wife and I looked into the science, made our decision to get it as soon as we are eligible and did it.  I admit I was nervous.   I did it anyway.   Bryson should just say he’s an anti-vaxxer or scared.  Better than saying tripe like that. Brooks should call him chicken….
    • I checked out the app and I guess you can keep score with it and the GPS.
