Well I received my GX 7 a couple of weeks ago and well the first time i used it it was just like the video! It wend dead straight and just as far as I hit my Driver. Since then I have been using it
and I love it. I played in a 9 hole twilight comp last night and hit 100% of the fairways. Walk away with 21 stableford point with one wipe! My golf scores have already dropped and feeling a lot more confident. You just have to control yourself and not try and belt the hell out of it.
So I can seriously say this is awesome.
@Kevinwelland and @Hiway1tele - nothing wrong from walking away from this game. It's ridiculously difficult. I've been at it for several years now and have recently come to the conclusion that any real improvement is outside my ability and means. Once that mindset kicks in, the game becomes more enjoyable and less frustrating (for me). Today, it took about 4 or 5 holes to get past the unrealistic expectations I often experience. The bad shots became just part of the round I endure while waiting to hit the few good ones. It ceased becoming a life or death situation and I was glad I played.
In a way, I envy your ability to walk away. I think about how much of the last 6 years of my life I've wasted working towards goals. All that time, I could have just enjoyed the game for what it is, or found a better hobby. Of course, I wouldn't have known my limits had I not put 100% in as I did.
In the end, it's about whether or not we can enjoy "bad" golf. There are worse players than us out there having fun - just as there have been much, much better players who've quit.
In most of golf, the distance max for a club is irrelevant. It's about dispersion and repeatability.
I dunno about the Internet crowd but for me I want drop and stop shooting at greens. A 15 cap here says he can choose between sucking it back or drop and stop on gw?
Sorry gotta call Bravo Sierra on that nonsense.
On the driving range, I couldn't care less how folks are dressed. Also I have never seen anyone acting trashy. I'm there to usually work on something, and that gets my undivided attention.
I guess I am immune to this kind of stuff when practicing, since I feel quite at home shopping at that " big box store".........
