Not sure about that. It’s possible that a newer driver head could be more forgiving in a way that helps my shots?

Perhaps. But maybe you’re needing forgiveness would be lessened with a better shaft.

I use a 2006 Cleveland Hi-Bore.  I picked it up used, in near mint condition, about six years ago.  It set me back 20-30 bucks.

Ping G15.  I have tried some of the newer versions but for my swing I saw no noticeable difference, plus it is not adjustable which this older golfer prefers.

Taylormade M2 '17. Although I want to get a Cobra F8 tour length really bad, I just bought the M2 a month ago. :/. Probably have to wait til next season when the price comes down.

Getting fit is pretty important for sure, and most of us could use all the help we can get that we can afford.

An old PING G5. Dropped it in favour of an Adams Blue 3w as i've fallen out with the PING and i can get away with the 3w on the course i have been playing.

Money is also a big factor at the moment.

So far I am surprised at the evenness of most of the major brands and that Titleist is the lowest of the majors. I thought for sure that TM with their market saturation would be further ahead than everyone. Also the Ping G400 has me interested in trying it.....

My experience in the states has been this....

W/S performs on par with TaylorMade, Titleist, Ping, Callaway -and- it's a better price.

I used a taylormade R540 for a minute. (i still have it actually) but otherwise I've used Titleist drivers for all of the years I've played golf. Their 975J model was one of the best clubs I've ever owned. The 905R was a great club, too.

Callaway Big Bertha V Series. Got a new shaft last year, which has made the driver into a (bigger) strength for me. I very rarely hit drives off the planet anymore. Used to happen once or twice a round.

I have played Taylor Made Drivers since about 1992....until I hit the Callaway Epic. I hit it further and straighter than any Taylor Made I have used. I have found the best driver for me is the Epic Sub-zero. Long and I keep it in play.

I voted "other" as well as I play a couple different drivers. Got a mutant golf brute head with a house of forged shaft, Callaway xr16 ld with a xphlexxx shaft, and a Krank golf F7 head with their fujikura flywire shaft. I tend to like the Krank the best, Callaway second, and the mutant third.

Cobra Bio Cell

Had it for a few years now, love it's overall looks especially when I'm standing over it. Has some loft adjustability too, which I plan to use once I start hitting it better.

    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • 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.
