what about the R11 or the new Burner?  If you use R 7, I am sure you are used to the "adjustments" of TM's clubs.  I do like their designs, although I don't know how I would react with the white club head under the sun.  Let me know what you think of these clubs.

I thought the r11 was ok, but i haven't used the adjustments on my r7 so im not sure i would use them on the r11. I haven't tried the new burner but one driver i really like is the callaway razr hawk

Good for you.  I got club fitted for Callaway once.  Just somehow, none of the clubs fit me.  I just cannot hit them well.  So I gave up on Callaway.  Maybe it's psychological.

I have one for you. I played titleist drivers all through high school and college. Played college golf for 4 years with a 905 S. I loved the thing, but didn't realize how much distance (hotter faces, longer, lighter clubs) and accuracy (higher MOI) I was missing...Until I hit a Cleveland SL290 this spring. The Miyazaki shaft is straight butter. I can not believe how much better my ball flight is with the 290 vs the 905. probably 10 yards farther and a lot straighter. plus I can work the ball when I need to. I would go check it out.

Thanks for all the recommendation.  I am using TM Burner right now.  I got tested with both the R9 and Burner.  The computer tells me when I hit the R9, I got 4,000 RPM on my spin.  But when I hit Burner, I only got 2800 RPM.  So it's the Burner for me.  I had tried my friend's Titleist and it's superb!  Except he wont' tell me which model at the time ;-)

Best thing to do is just try them all out and see which you like best.

Or if you like a certain brand / look, you buy that and get used to it.

Everyone has their own personal pref.

    • My latest round, despite driving it poorly (popped up quite a few), I had less than 2 strokes lost approach.  But I had 9 strokes lost putting.  I still hit 4 GIR + another two with a full swing but not for regulation. So the approach part is nice! My sand shots have been really good lately.  Despite that I've had sand shots to hit. Last night and tonight I drained a lot of 3' and 6' putts on the practice green.  Reading Erik's post from a while back about not accelerating, and the pendulum, has helped, and now I'm thinking of that actively when practicing short putts.  I'll do a measured drill on these soon. 
    • I went through something very similar after a swing improvement session (lesson) and it terrified me.  My teaching pro told me it was just an adjustment period that old muscle memory was fighting.  He told me to just relax and go out and hit balls at the range for a few more days and it should all fall into place.  The next day, I was hitting the ball better than I ever had in the past. I hope you have a similar experience.
    • So as governor, I could say that wearing a burka for instance is a risk and make it illegal with a wave of my magic wand? It's a slippery slope. I'm not anti-mask. I am pro common sense. He made it a criminal offense in "red" counties, but a few months ago was letting felons out of prison to protect them from COVID-19. All the local and county police departments are releasing statements that they are not going to be the mask police, so what good does it do. The more they try to assert authority, the more people become opposed to what they say. Heck, my county sheriff put out a statement asking people to stop calling 9-1-1 when the see someone without a mask.

    • My game is coming together.  Off the tee, I am improving from round to round.  There is still room for improvement, but I think I just need to get confident with the driver.  With my irons, I am literally hitting the ball better than I ever have.  My miss is now a thin shot, rather than a weak chunked shot that leaves me a full shot short of the green.  However, most of my irons are pure, or as close to pure, as they have ever been.  Today, I was striping four and five irons into greens protected by water without fear. My short game, while not getting me up and down for pars yet, is allowing me to limit the damage.  I have played my last two rounds, on difficult, tree lined courses, without a single triple bogey.  My last triple bogey was forty holes ago.  The putts that I am missing are burning the edges, and I stuck several five-to-ten footers right in the heart of the cup.  My lag putting is improving with every round, and my confidence with the putter is rising. My course management is improving as my swing is improving, because I am becoming more confident in my abilities.  When I am over a shot, my thoughts have shifted from just staying out of trouble, to actually focusing on targets.  My next step is to really get a better handle on my club distances.  As my swing has improved, my distances have increased, and I've got to figure them out so that I can avoid the debacles like happened on the 17th today.  I tried to lay-up with a seven iron, but hit it into the woods.  If I put that one into the fairway, I make par, instead of double bogey. My handicap is falling as my confidence is rising.
