Ping Specify Anser Sn Red Dot:

Bought with a gift cert I won in my golf league. Was putting pretty well but thought I could use the shake up. Round yesterday, for the first time, I averaged well under 2 putts per both GIRs and missed GIRs. I also had the idea to use tennis racket grip tape to not only bulk up my grip a bit but to further aid in sweat absorption.

Well I did it I broke down and bought a new driver. I have been reading a lot about the Titleist 907 D2. I had demoed one awhile back on a launch monitor and was impressed by how forgiving it was. Off center shots were not that bad usually only 7 to 10 yards off center. Our foursome went on a road trip and I found one and couldn’t pass up the price. It was a demo and they were clearing them out. Sweet! It’s a 907 D2, 9.5*, S flex, UST Proforce V2 75 and it’s very clean, absolutely no marks. Well today I took it and my R7 Quad to the range. After warming up I hit about 25 drives with the Titleist 907 D2 , Wow! When I swung at 80% I hit every drive down the middle and at least 285 to 295. When I swung all out I only missed 2 out of 10 drives, 80% is very good and they were deep down the range hitting the net 300 yards out 15 to 20 feet up. Now I had to try my R7, its 4 years old and only 400cc so it’s the first model that was made and I really like it, its 9.5* X-flex, Harrison Mungen. When I swing 80% with it I hit only 6 to 7 out of 10 down the middle and when I went all out I only hit 3 to 4 out of 10 down the middle. I have been averaging 283yds.with it this year. The Titleist is as advertized “very forgiving”. After my little comparison I tried shaping shots with the 907, like I said Wow! I never thought that you would be able to work the ball very well with such a big head I was wrong. I could easily work the ball either way. Move over R7 there’s a new big dog in my bag. I can’t wait to get it out on the course this Friday!

    • Picked up a birdie on my away course, hole 5 a par 4 ay Campbell’s Scottish Highlands. Pulled my drive left but had a nice recovery 4H to about 105 yards. PW to 4 feet and made the birdie putt.
    • Day 277: Play 18 in a light rain this morning. Played ok with some good drives and shots, but also some missed right.
    • Thank you.  I'll play this out a bit in 2022 and count the rounds at each, too.  I think for 2022, my formerly-close home course will be the most common "not my close home course" I play, so it'd be different from the rest of the away composite.  
    • BTW try to name the pictures well so that everyone knows what they are looking at. I will rename the three I added to start the album when I get a moment.
    • I'm a long time flight-simmer and have MSFS on my PC with yoke, throttles, pedals, etc.  Pretty much built my current setup around flight simming (though my daughter does some gaming and takes advantage of the hardware!).  Got the max version day of release last August and have really enjoyed it. There's a "friend" system built-in.  I haven't really used it (one random person with "Bama" in their name friended me)--but would love to fly with any of you guys.  Add me as a friend when you can.  My MSFS profile name is "THEBAMABRUIN".  I fly several times a week, mostly at night...or when it's rainy outside.  So catch me online, or message me here to link up.  Since my kiddo regularly uses my rig, I'll commandeer her sweet headset and we'll go for a fly somewhere cool.
