Morning guys,

Well... Firstly, I nipped into American Golf.......... 

I was in for a PING G driver, had a chat with the guy told him my bad miss was a bad slice so he pointed me towards the new LS tec, so I hit a few balls maybe 30-40 and everything was either a good straight ball or a slice. He gave me a few "swing pointers" and straightened it up a bit. 

Anyway the point is, the LS tec "promotes" a fade or in my case helps me slice, I cant really justify buying a SF tec head soooo, would i get away with some lead tape towards the heel on the sole? Or would this cause more issues with swing weight, shaft flex etc? 

Thank you in advance :) 

 

Andy.

Morning Andy,

Generally, a bad miss might be more of a swing path issue.  A slight miss might warrant a fitting for a minor weight distribution.  Just my thought on tweeking clubs.

Hatchman, 

Thanks for your reply, I should have really said my normal drive is a slight fade or straight. I will play for a fade 9/10 down the left side most times with enough room if it stays straight. 

I played an i25 for 2 years which a was a consistant/controlable fade. 

 

Andy.

Why is SF tec not an option? Cost?

From what I researched, the LS tec would accentuate your fade. The sf tec would straighten it a tad. Here's a review I did on those different heads.

    • Exactly correct, and the first Decision on this rule says that the "old" scoring record will be used for someone like @DrvFrShow, who is resuming handicap maintenance after a time away.  The Handicap Committee MAY modify that player's HI if the old scores don't reflect the current ability., If a scoring record exists, it will generally be used.  
    • Particularly when that slow group is a couple of serious A-holes.
    • Not really a good option when the teesheet is packed.  They would have to let every group behind them play through. That's why I ask how many of y'all have marshaled a tough course on a busy day . . . . you will hear every excuse in the book.  One of my favorites was a cigar-smoking, smart-talking older guy who had 3 young bucks in his group.  They had held up a 2-some all day, and at the third visit from me, on the 12th tee, he read me the riot-act with some choice, colorful words, saying it was the course's fault for allowing 2-somes to play.  He said he paid twice what they paid, so he was playing the way he wanted. I went back and talked to the 2-some, a husband and wife, and told them they would have to go around that foursome. Not long later I saw them at their car.  They were not upset, but they quit and came in because they did not want to upset the 4-some. See, that's when  I'd like to be able to pull out my tablet and see if they wanted to re-play at a discount. BTW, some 2-somes, often couples, won't book unless we block the other two slots at their tee time.     Wow!  Never heard of that, no-hole-skipping rule. & funny how some slow groups speed up when you play through.
    • Not sure about the other two, but I'm not technically allowed to do that. Mind you, nobody would have caught me if I did. One of the many rules we sign off on with a City of Dayton, OH privilege pass includes not skipping holes. For better or worse, I tend to be rule follower. I suppose given the layout of the course and my being on foot, it would have been a bit awkward anyway. We make the move, they speed up and we hit the next tee at the same time.
    • My instructor tells me that the more golf I play, the more I need to take lessons, not just to get better, but to make sure I don’t develop any bad habits unknowingly. I play 4-5 rounds a week and see my instructor every other week for swing checks. I have bad days on the course and will get frustrated - I usually stop golfing and see my pro right away instead of trying to figure it out myself.  Do you have anyone you are working with? I find it beneficial to have lessons regularly. I see it like a car tuneup - car is running fine but you still get an oil change/service regularly just to make sure things are doing well. Same thing with golf.
