OK I bought an R7 Superquad at a golf expo this past weekend (10.5, and reg shaft) for $250.... I don't know if it's the TP or not... I just realized there's a difference between the TP and just the regular Superquad. Can anyone shed some light on that? Also I'm not sure how to properly use the weighting system. I'm going to play 9 now, I'll report back with my thoughts on the club in general in a few hours. Thanks in advance for any help!

unless you have a first edition like mine, there will be grooves in the center of the club face, that indicaates a tp, if there are no grooves, but ti still has the symbol, it is a first edition, adn iwll say so. i can takae pics if you need.


P.S. its a beautiful club when you get it working...

fusion- the ones labled all black are not fakes. they are quiete reall. On the TM site, it says they are, "commemorative of this great achievment in driver technology." or something like that. I snagged mine for 170, and it ran through the taylor made registration just fine...

My bad, perhaps I wasn't being too clear with this. I didn't mean all SuperQuad 1st Edition All Black are all fakes. I was saying that to my knowledge "they" make fakes SuperQuad only with the 1st Edition version, but not the 460MWT.

OK so turns out it's not a TP just a regular Superquad. I played 9 yesterday... it was windy and 42 degrees. I really only hit one beautiful drive... it's going to take some getting used to. I couldn't turn my old driver over fast enough so I played it pretty far up in my stance. I obviously set up the same with the R7 which resulted in a hook. When I tried holding back my wrists a little bit I held them back too much and pushed it. I'm sure just moving the ball back in my stance while maintaining the same swing as before will be the key here. Can anyone lend some advice on using the weights? TIA...

more info here: http://www.taylormadegolf.com/produc...il.asp?pID=167

this is what i remember:

1) heavier weight on top - produce lower ball flight
2) heavier weight on heel - tend to draw
3) heavier weight on toe - tend to fade

and i think the rules say you are not supposed to tinker with the weights during a round. have fun!

    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
