Today I saw this club in a pro shop, and had to hit it. I favor a draw faced club and this one seems to be somewhat closed. It is a 10 degree with a voodoo 60-r shaft. I hit this club quite well but the shaft felt a bit on the spongy side to me. Tomarrow I am going to try the same club with a stifer flex. My question is I havent been able to find much out about this club. I do see that shafts can be changed quite easily. Also these drivers seem to be able to be pickup up for less than 100 dollars. Does anyone have any imput about these drivers? Is the face angle closed at address?

Thanks, Gene

I currently use a 9° IZ with the stock stiff shaft.  Personally I love it I believe it is a touch shorter than most drivers which I feel gives more control.  As for at address The club head is closed slightly, but only a little and can be manouvered to your preference very easily.

I would definately recommend it great driver and you can get it for dirt cheap.

well, today I took the same club out with a stiffer shaft. The performance of the driver was not as good as the vodoo golf shaft. Golf shafts are so different from one another. The regular shafted club allowed me to work the ball a bit more. Definitly felt softer at impact also. My swing speed runs from 90 to around 98. I played yesterday with it and pulled more shots with it than any other driver I have had in the past. Now a pull is not good either. It has to be controlled also. But because I was hitting the ball a bit more square, I did notice a difference in the distance I was able to drive the ball. This should be a great driver. I need to give it some time, and practice with it. I am one of those guys who believes a driver is a very important club in the bag. But only if you know how to use it. I need to be able to slow it down for control on tight, and difficult holes, but also be able to let it out on some more open holes. I think if I give this club a little time it will be just great!!

They are a great driver, one of Callaways best i think , i have a 9deg with a prolaunch platinum, very forgiving , nice mid ballflight that just stays in the air. I wont even be looking at a new driver for a long time.

    • Just for grins, if you could only buy golf infomercial "as seen on TV" golf clubs, what would your bag set up look like?

    • eh For the sake of referencing somewhere to start, Ill begin with reaffirming your belief that, playing mini tour golf is a tough way to make a living.  From my own experience I understand how you came to the conclusions of just how hard it is for anyone to achieve golf excellence.  Speaking from deeper depths of my experience, I can say that's where our common ground stops.   Playing golf at its highest level isn't strictly about talent. Not about hitting 350 yard drives while shooting 29 for 9 holes against friends. Playing golf.at its highest levels is about belief.  You mention the impossibility of a 22 year old with a 5 handicap ever doing anything with their game. I was a 27 year old weekend golfer (I didn't even carry a legitimate handicap index) when I realized I hated sales jobs and landed a job at a private club, a club that offered no restrictions to the course if I wasn't on the clock. Not long after I discovered local mini tours. After a number of painful years donating my tournament entry fees to the purses, I started playing good enough to finish in the money. Not long after I was actually winning.  My point being, there are a number of threads here, those of which detail the dreams of chasing golf greatness. Stories that offer and speak to the side of success.     
    • Yes. I checked out her site. I’m guessing it’s not her thing
    • By the simple fact that you referred to this event as "The Bob Hope" I am compelled to comment and share my two cents. I grew up in the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic era myself. When this, and the Crosby or AT&T in Monterey were the two flagship Pro-Am events. Ironically enough, it was this very season that I realized, the LPGA hosts a Pro-Am of their own, and it draws the names the PGA used to.  I can't help but think it's due to the fact that, even though the pros tear up the desert courses, the ams have always struggled. Not to mention the players on the LPGA Tour are no longer the stereotypical "dikes on spikes." But rather, not only being pretty damn cute, have a game that is fun to watch. I think the best thing that could have happened to this tour stop in the desert was picking up a sponsor as major as American Express. I say, because the big name Ams have clearly chosen the LPGA event, the PGA should drop the pro am portion and make it a full fledge tour stop held on the Stadium Course. Then leave the big draw pro am to Pebble Beach.
