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"

    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
    • Saw this interesting drill for encouraging hip rotation by deliberately opening the face in the downswing. Anyone tried this? I’d worried it will develop a bad habit of opening the face at the top of the swing.  
    • "With the delta variant taking off around the U.S., the federal government Tuesday updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new advice is to mask up indoors if you live in a place with "substantial" or "high" coronavirus transmission. (The guidance for people who are unvaccinated remains the same: Always mask up indoors.)" Check your county's transmission rates:   Do You Need To Wear A Mask Indoors Where You Live? Check This Map The CDC wants vaccinated people to wear masks indoors if the coronavirus is spreading widely where they live. Find out the level of virus transmission in your county. And, this was interesting: "A week after the crowds descended upon Provincetown, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Fourth of July -- the holiday President Joe Biden hoped would mark the nation's liberation from COVID-19 -- the manager of the Cape Cod beach town said he was aware of "a handful of positive COVID cases among folks" who spent time there. "We are in touch with the Health Department and Outer Cape Health Services and are closely monitoring the data," Alex Morse told reporters. The announcement wasn't unusual with roughly half of the country still unvaccinated and flare-ups of the virus popping up in various states. But within weeks, health officials seemed to be on to something much bigger. The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated. As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized. The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications. Before Provincetown, health officials had been operating under the assumption that it was extraordinarily rare for a vaccinated person to become infected with the virus. And if they did, they probably wouldn't end up passing it on to others, such as children too young to qualify for the vaccine or people who were medically vulnerable. The idea that vaccines halt transmission of the virus was largely behind the CDC's decision in May suggesting vaccinated people could safely go without their masks indoors and in crowds, even if others were unvaccinated. But that assumption had been based on studies of earlier versions of the virus. Delta was known for its "hyper-transmissibility," or as one former White House adviser put it "COVID on steroids." "What has changed is the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and Biden's chief medical adviser. When a vaccinated person gets infected with delta -- called a "breakthrough infection" -- "the level of virus in their nasopharynx is about 1,000 times higher than with the alpha variant," Fauci said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC. All indications now are that the Provincetown outbreak investigation is among the pieces of new evidence behind the CDC's decision to ask Americans to once again put on their masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated."   CDC mask decision followed stunning findings from Cape Cod beach outbreak - ABC News The CDC's mask decision followed stunning findings from a Cape Cod beach outbreak. The viral load of vaccinated beachgoers changed what we know about the delta variant.  
    • It would be interesting to know if they'd perform any differently with the belt device. As I wear a different wrist "health" tracking device the apple watch wouldn't work for me. Also, have you noticed any wear on the face of the sensors from rubbing on the bottom of your bag?
    • Had a birdie lip out on the final hole yesterday which would have given me a 67 and equal my age. But 68 is only the 2nd time I've ever shot that so pretty happy anyway. Golf is a crazy game. Last week I played 3 rounds and only had 1 birdie total. This week after 3 rounds I've had 15 birdies. Playing from the senior tees of course but this is the best golf I have played at anytime in my life and I have been at for over 50 years. Maybe it's time to retire. Ha.
