I bought a set of irons from them last year. They were great to work with. I was looking at several different sets and read about them and decided to demo their 739 irons which seemed to fit my game. They performed as well as anything else I was looking at. I live close to their facility and was able to have them fit me. I tried several of their other clubs in their fitting studio and was impressed with their different clubs. I will definitely be buying from them again when the budget allows.
Driver. It's not even a question, right?
1.) Strokes gained. Driver vs. putter on any shot from 50 yards or more is a no-brainer. The 100+ yard difference off the tee is worth a stroke a hole, if not more. On the green, the driver might cost you half a stroke at most.
2.) Forced carries. I've played courses, regularly, where you could give me 20 shots with a putter and I couldn't advance the ball towards the green. Any shot that's possible with a putter is possible with a driver...but not vice versa.
3.) There is no #3.
Well said. I'm sorry that I made it frustrating, but happy that I learned. I talked a bit about club lines and how I feel they differ (they don't remain stationary until impact). So when I read another rule, pieces of equipment that the golfer is actively using shouldn't be considered under "any object" unless expressed in the rule?
I’d rather do a driver. Here’s why, assuming I’m playing the white tees at my home course:
PUTTER: A full-swing putter is not a shot you’d think of practicing on the range. Sure, I’ve hit one every once in a while just for the heck of it, and I’ve actually hit some solid ones. But I only averaged about 160 yards on a solid strike, and as far as about 175, which wouldn’t get me home in regulation on a lot of the par-4s on my home course. Also, I probably never hit it above head height, which could be ugly on some of the holes.
DRIVER: An average driver for me would go about 230 yards, 250+ if I smoke it. That puts me within striking distance on every hole, and as it happens, I’ve actually practiced less-than-full drivers, which helps on the par-3s and shorter approach shots. I can also hit a decent full swing driver off the deck. As for bunkers, in most of the bunkers at my course, you can just run it up the lip and pop it out gently.
