Mother nature didn't cooperate this morning. So I couldn't practice outside... Damn. So I worked on the 75-80% effort swing, stopping at each position in the backswing.. It works better I've found with hitting balls with a slightly more than three-quarter backswing, though it does work to parallel with longer clubs. It's different to me, still getting used to the feeling... But I believe it will be better for my game in the future.
Hello all. This is not a google type question, so I'm putting it out there for the humans. I have recently discovered I have been swinging a wood shaft on my driver for the last 10+ years. Yes 10+... Anyways, I'm a big swinger with my drives between 270 and 300 yds. 115+ mph swing speed according to my local golf shop (with my driver). The driver is a Taylormade R7 with an Aldila NV 65 s shaft (stiff). I'm also left handed, hence nobody ever told me I was swinging a wood shaft because I only play with you right handed folk. I now know that a stiff wood shaft is stiffer than a stiff driver shaft, so what type of flex and weight should I get if I want to replace my current shaft? I still want to take the big cuts that I have grown accustomed to, since it is the strongest part of my game (I have a strong scramble presence I need to keep up). I'm thinking extra stiff will still feel looser than my current shaft? I have since picked up and dabbled with a lefty driver with a stiff driver shaft and it felt like my wife's 8 iron (no offense intended). But do I just need to get used to this? Or go extra stiff? Thank you for reading this far. Any input is greatly appreciated.
I am brand new to The Sand Trap so veterans bear with me. I recently Demoed The Callaway Epic Driver and hit it better than I expected ( a good 15 to 20 yards past my Taylormade Aeroburner). I have read all the reviews by club pros but for my money the proof comes on the golf course from guys that can tell me if they found any distance over their regular gamer. I know my experience was only one round and I wanted some input before I spend the $$. On a second note: For the past several years I have had my Driver painted (I just couldn't go with all that white on the Taylormade) and would think about doing the same if I purchase the Epic to match my 3Wood and Hybrids. I have read that the "Speed Step" on the top of the Epic is a 3 D decal and not a part of the actual structure of the head. If that is the case I am afraid sanding might remove it. Just wondered if anyone knows more about the "Speed Step"? Thanks.
