That’s usually the way most instructors go with juniors. Distance then control. Alina (my 6-year-old) actually plays with clubs that are made for a 54” tall junior and she’s around 50” tall. She drives it around 125 yards and regularly shoots in the low 50s for 9 holes. (You should see her hit her hybrid, she’s more consistent with that, than I am with my 58° wedge!)
Welcome back! Great to hear you’re going to get back out on the green pastures of insanity! Did you see there’s a video series for the LSW material? It’s really good from what I’ve watched. Great discount for TST members as well!
The rural areas are really concerning. My parents have a house over in Clay County, Alabama (pop. 15,000 +/-) and when it does arrive there, the little local hospital will have no chance of taking care of the sick. Thankfully, they are over here in the Atlanta area.
Is this a Burner Bubble shaft from back 25 years ago. They had an enormous butt end and really could only use 1 of 2 specific Taylormade grips that had the matching inside diameter at the butt end. Any other grip would give you a crazy tapered result with a super thick butt.
We used to have a tool specific to installing these grips, not sure if its still available today. Scratch that. Just found it on Golfworks. The ultimate grip installer tool.
Like Boogielicious said, at this point you probably will only be able to find .620 grips that might work on some level. You might be able to locate some of the TM Bubble grips on Ebay, but not sure you can buy them individually. Stay away from multi material and corded grips as they give less. Also make sure the grips aren't cold.
