Played yesterday with the Kirkland ball. I didn't notice any difference between this ball and any other urethane ball i've played. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the ball performed. I'll play it again on Monday on way back from Pittsburgh. But after one round I'm pretty impressed
I think a lot of times the shear size of the driver make it awkward to swing for some golfers. The driver is longer, and those 460 heads make for quite a difference when compared to shorter shafted, smaller headed clubs.
I went to one of those low profile square driver heads just to get a better feeling for the lower lofted club.
The shear size of the driver, makes the golfer think they are swinging slower, so they put more speed into the swing, which just adds more awkwardness. Balance, and timing are poorly effected.
I have heard it said that choking down on the longer shafted driver is way to check for this awkwardness. If the golfer chokes down, swings normally, and the golfer sees improvement, they just need more driver practice, with their normal grip and swing speed.
I have often wondered if some golfers lack some physical strength to swing a driver comfortably, when compared to the shorter clubs.
I have a little inside knowledge here, and Phil's play at the Ryder Cup had nothing to do with it.
Also, it's unlikely they'd be paired together. They'd likely be on opposite ends of the field so the crowds and TV coverage would be spread out a bit.
That video makes me laugh.
I mean, she's gotta read the script, but the folks who wrote the script don't have much of an argument IMO.
