I played a dozen of them when they first came out. I thought they were a nice ball, but not good enough to replace the ball I was using at the time (Callaway Hex Black).
And you're correct, Snell designed them when he was at Taylormade.
1) Drive for show, putt for dough. I think putting is more exciting to watch. Regardless, you aren't winning any money off better players if you can't smoke it off the tee a little.
2) Swing easy for greater distance. Also drive your car slower to get some place more quickly. Slouch to look taller, etc.
3) If I could only bring my range game to the course... The problem is that we do bring our range game to the course, but it just isn't as good as we think it is. (Except me. Mine is almost there. Almost got it.)
4) Mental game holds me back. Just improve Keys 1-5, and quit whining already.
5) Short game matters most. Complete b.s. spread, endorsed, and sold by people too lazy to practice or teach the full swing.
Uh oh! Shane has another thread about set make up. Well sort of. It's more to get suggestions from you guys about the subject.
Let me set this up. I recently had my EXi irons bent to the following lofts.
3- 19 4-22 5- 25 6-28 7-32 8-36 9-40 PW- 44 AW- 48 SW- 54... The 3 and SW usually don't see play (I have speciality wedges for the SW) so I got the stupid thought to get 52, 56, 60 CB Pro S wedges with the matching Recoil Graphite shafts in my irons.... So basically that I have 5 wedges in the bag. I'm thinking that my 5-iron is going to be my longest iron. I carry a Driver and a 4-wood...
Simple question, can I get away with just a 4-hybrid for my 14th club or am I nuts?
