Ok so this is gonna sound stupid, but the Taylormade Torque Wrench that they claim is "universal", is not; unless I am truly challenged.

I was playing around with my R1 yesterday and adjusting some stuff then I wanted to do the same on my RBZ 3 rescue. Didn't work at all. The shape of the keyhole is the same but just looks a touch smaller on the RBZ.

Again, I feel dumb needing to post about this, but I have searched around the internet and haven't found any complaints about it. In fact, I have found tons of post selling the "universal TM torque wrench" perfect for R11, R11s, R1, RBZ clubs.

Does anybody know anything about this? Would my wrench work on a RBZ driver, just not the rescue club? I feel dumb.

Odd... I have an old R7 with torque wrench, an R11s Driver and fairway wood with their respective wrenches. They seem to work across all of them. Is it possible that the slot is just filled with schmaltz or something?

I thought that was the case but its really not. Legitimately the RBZ has a smaller keyhole; very slight. The wrench just sits atop it. Its cleaned out and perfect condition not like warped or bent or stripped

China ran out of the big star bolts, but they had others they could use....Had this problem with a used club off Ebay... so you will need to purchase the 110-piece Craftsman Handy-man Tool-kit ($199 but then you have tools!) which comes with the 3.5 millimeter star bit to wrench your club, or go to a NAPA  store and they can sell you the correct bit for like 4 bucks. Yes it is frustrating especially if you strip the star pattern. The money spent to extract that screw... pays for the tool kit.....Hurray for China!

Funny, I bought 2 wrenches, 1 for my Titleist 3 wood F2, and my Callaway driver. The titleist wrench was 25.00, and the Callaway was 10.00, and these aren't torque wrenches, they just have stupid looking plastic handles on them. Just another way for them to make even more $$$ off us..

Yes ...they shall get us coming and going....I have the $10 plastic handle ones also. and of course if you buy off Ebay it is typically "wrench and head cover not included"

    • When water gets on my driver face I hit knuckleballs... not my preferred shot shape.
    • Thing is… a lot of slower swinging players could probably use MORE spin.
    • There is someone at my club who has been noticed putting Vaseline or chap stick on his driver to reduce spin.   The person who told me said that they were told not to do it if money was on the line.   So I guess it’s a thing.  
    • Our Mens Golf Association has bylaws that talk about keeping things in the spirit of the game and polices certain behaviors and situations.  The person who runs it is a fierce competitor and when he talks match play strategy, he will say things about how he plays to put pressure on people to win and get into their head by trying to bury them or play aggressively at the start to make an opponent go in the defensive.   He doesn’t trash talk or say things to mess with people. As golfers, or people, there are going to be people who try and exploit anything they can get away with and it’s best to be prepared to deal with it and not let it bother you.  People who are jerks and push it too far will get reputations and in the end if they are excessive, it’ll rebound on them.  
    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice.
