Up until last week my 2nd longest club was a Callaway X2 hot 4w. I hit it well off the deck and tee. I just picked up a TaylorMade M1 3w. I have the M1 driver and love how it looks so I decided to pick up the 15° 3w to match. I do like that it's adjustable if I start struggling I can turn it up 2° to basically make it the same as my X2 Hot.
15min at range warming up with many clubs prior to round. Tried to get a feel something simple to get me making contact with some vague resemblance to what I've been practicing. Noticed I was hitting my 7iron 5-10yds longer than last year. Driver carrying 10-20yds longer.
Played 18 but mixed success with consistency. When I struck it well, I could feel the new swing path getting more power and squaring up easily.
Just too frequently pulled left hooks which hurt my score. If I can gain consistency and all the work over the winter should yield some better scores than the last couple years. Distances are noticeably better- and I feel like I'm swinging easier
Played 9 holes yesterday and had a 36 on a par 34. 2 bogeys on the last 2 holes. Very happy considering I had an 86(par 70) on the same course last Saturday. Very disappointing as it was the club championships and i was shooting in the high 70s with a cold putter in the days leading up to it. But a 3 day rest seems to have done me no harm at all. The only part of my game that was below par was my driving but hopefully I'll clean that up before round 2 on Saturday.
