DV8 Clubs

  1. 1. Would you like to build/deconstruct your clubs with every swing?

    • No thanks, I like my clubs all put together!

Has anyone seen anything like this before?  I'm not sure it would be for me.  But I could see this being used by someone that travels a good bit, but might not want to lug around a full size bag.  Would anyone here be interested in trying this?

I think that's pretty cool, actually, but really doubt how practical it would be. Can you imagine playing behind someone who had to assemble a new club before every shot? I'm sceptical as to how well this would actually work.

The main issue is it would make any round you played not valid. You aren't allowed to make changes to your clubs during a round. Also I wouldn't want to be bothered with assembling a club constantly on the course, would tend to slow down play.

All you need is one of these (and a quarter in your pocket to make adjustments).

Not legal either, but easy to adjust from driving iron to lob wedge and putter. 

Kind of fun once you get used to the unusual ball distances and flights.. Yes, you can make pars and birdies with this thing. I have.

Heck yeah I'd use something like that if it worked well.  IMO - the rule about not being able to adjust your club during a round was created before the advent of adjustable clubs and, as such, true adjustable clubs are disallowed only on a technicality.  I can see no reason to disallow something like the DV8, no "extra advantage" that one would gain from using it. 

Adjusting loft on a driver during a round could be construed as having an extra club that isn't counted . .so I can see that not being allowed.  It doesn't seem like the DV8's have adjustable lofts and lies so as long as you have 14 or fewer clubheads . . .I think the DV8 should be legal.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
