Let me up the ante.. $150 says he will have taken a full swing by October. Caveats - his right knee soft tissue intact and he doesn't develop post op infection of any kind. Heck you can take full swings with a completely fused right ankle.
So, I've got it in my head that I "need" the new PXG 0211 driver. The price is pretty amazing - $249 (plus shipping, I assume) for a new driver, shaft and midsize grip seems pretty sweet. I'm currently using a hand me down TaylorMade M1 driver head (that was given to me) on a regular flex shaft. One concern for me is that I really have no way to test hit the PXG before purchasing. The nearest PXG facility that I know of is a 6 hour round trip drive through some heavy traffic. (The thing I like best about Seattle is seeing it in my rearview mirror, as they say). PXG does have a return policy but you have to pay to ship it back and there's a 15% "restocking" fee.
Reviews are few, that I can find, but what there is seems favorable. One reviewer compared it to the Ping G425 (but much less expensive). And, the price! Sheesh. I'm probably going to call PXG tomorrow and talk to them but there's still time to talk me out of it...
