I'm not going to lie...I thought about that, haha. Yeah I even had a few in the hitting bay roll out to 282 through 285 yards. Did he throw a 20 mph artificial wind behind me?! haha. Nah we had a couple drivers going in the 270's not just the Sim, but the Sim felt the most comfortable, so I'll just have to go back in get some answers.
Update: I've been playing the same courses I normally do and going to the driving range and I have not seen the distances I achieved on the launch monitor apply to the course at all. I'm hitting the Sim Max about exactly the same distance as I was my TM Burner. A bit frustrating to say the least, however the standard shaft does seem to be quite a bit easier on my back, I can do a full range session with the standard shaft as I was dialing in the Sim Max driver whereas the stiff shaft on the burner would wear me out with just half a bucket of balls.
The person who fitted me said I can bring it back at any time for some tweaks, so I guess I'm going to do that. What do y'all think? What if I continue to carry just 230 with a roll out around 250 just like my old club. Hopefully I can get some answers otherwise there was no point in spending that much money (aside from the ease on the back).
Soooo it's been about 5 years since I last updated this. In the time being, my scores have improved and last year I took my first lesson with a PGA pro. It was very helpful and my scores improved even more!
This paragraph is a little TMI but I feel it's necessary. I got a vasectomy over the winter that STILL hasn't totally healed. I can't really run or do anything strenuous. I can still golf which has kept me sane but I have had to modify my swing. My source of power after last year's lesson was creating separation between shoulder and hips and starting the downswing with an aggressive shift to the target with the hips. This causes me pain now and I've had ot adjust.
I don't feel any pain when my shoulders and hips are synced up but I feel like I'm unable to get my weight forward enough for impact. My miss has been a pull so with longer clubs I've just been trying to own it and setup aiming left with OK results.
I've been messing around in the yard during COVID with plastic balls and playing about once a week. My scores are similar to last year (probably due to a solid short game and better course management) but swing is back to being inconsistent and I've been tinkering without guidance, changing my swing from round to round. I decided to check in here and finally get some guidance from people with more swing knowledge.
