Turn up you speakers. Great sound of a 115mph swing(According to jacked up GG simulator)

Smash factor only 1.37? Is it "jacked up" because you don't swing 115?

What's the point of this thread exactly? I ask only because historically they've not gone well.

The point is that I loved the sound and thought I would share. As for the numbers, I found them odd but really, I don't get hung up on them. I find a club that feels good, take it to the course and judge it on it's performance.

You've stated that I don't swing 110, I just repeated what the trackman listed when I got fitted for a driver. I have no idea what my true swing speed is, but I have a garage full of long drive prizes from various scrambles and I know that I wear out wedges and short irons more than mid to long irons.

If I had to bet my life on driver distance, I would say that my average distance is around 280 yds.

But hey, the real point is the wonderful sound of club hitting ball then the visual of ball go far!

Blessings for a great 2013.

Your swing speed didn't look/sound that fast. If you can pull off 280yrds with that speed I should easily go 300+.

My swing speed is not 115. Avg. ss is 102 - 104. As for carry and total distance, all I can say is that I know my yardages pretty well and avg. carry is around 250 - 260.  I have hit many drives in excess of 300 yds. Anyway, the point was simply the sound of the video. The swing is not a hard swing it is what I would call a 75% swing. Just smooth.

Yeah, it has a nice sound.  I find that my best drives, and the best drives of my playing partners, are actually the quietest. I can really tell when I hit a bad drive because it makes the loudest, harshest sound.

Depends on the driver, i've had driver's that were really quiet, and drivers really loud. My Ping G10 would seriously hurt my ears sometimes with how loud it got on really solid hits. Titleist is way more quiet and softer sounding.

Justagood,

Was that just the camera's mic?  I love the sound they make on Tour.

Anyone know what kind of microphones they use on Tour?  I've seen the rig on but they have those giant fuzzy wind screens on them.  A great directional mic can make a huge difference in sound.  I use one for recording guitar.

    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
    • I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up. Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart.  I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
