Still swinging my Titleist 915, time for an upgrade.

I am waiting for the taylormade to come out of February and I have a fitting scheduled just after to compar the new M5, TS, and Flash.

Excited, hope to gain 10 yards since my driver is out of date, but we shall see.

I’m excited for when the new drivers are discounted. Then I’ll get fit

I agree. It looks pretty awesome. 

It's the first driver in a long time I've been really excited about pre-release.

Yeah, that's what I was waiting for when Callaway introduced the Epic. Except there weren't any year old drivers to be discounted! Every golf shop in the area sold out of them. That left the "used" market, and there weren't a whole lot of them there either!

Why does the Ping G410 say "plus" on the bottom?  It's just the standard head I believe.

Since I've been trying the latest drivers over the last couple weeks indoors, Cobra, Titleist and Taylormade.   Still throwing the G400 max into the mix.  The Cobra has been on top by a large margin.

The Callaway Flash pair hasn't showed up as of last week.   As soon as I see it I'll put it up against the Cobra.  I want to go into the spring with 2 or 3 drivers to demo at our big 3 day outdoor demo and see who comes out on top.

Cobra King F9?

I'm looking forward to seeing this one in person.  The others (Callaway, Taylormade, Ping), I feel like i have seen previous iterations and hit them, but haven't taken a look at Cobra in a long time. But it seems like there are a whole lot of good options and competition for drivers.

The Cobra F9, mainly because I've always liked their drivers/woods. I don't think any of the new drivers are going to be ground breaking enough compared to my M2 to spend that kind of money.

Cobra is less money, great shaft selection and Arrcos...which is a cool feature to play around with.

im hearing people say the Epic Flash sub zero is really no better than the original Epic sub zero.  Interesting but I want to hit the Flash Subzero myself and see.

I've heard the opposite.

I bought a Rogue sub zero late last year based off fitting results. BY FAR my favorite driver I have ever owned.

Hope to hit it tomorrow afternoon.  I like the sliding weight on the flash subzero...we'll see how it fares vs. The Cobra and I'll probably grab a rogue sz and if they have one an epic sz.

With the Epic Flash, I've heard there has been some small improvement on ball speed. I am curious on the off-center strikes.

What store do you go to? I didn't see the Cobra at Golf Galaxy.

Golf Galaxy in Reading had it, not sure about Burlington.

    • 235 out on a 2nd shot to a par 5 from a good lie in the fairway.  Barely a downhill lie if anything.  The left side is all woods.  the pin is behind the foliage and the right side of the green is protected by a little pool fairly tight.  Probably 215 to the green, 235 to the pin.  2nd shot is designed to risk to the green, or lay out to the right where there's a simple collection, abeit also a tight fit, or layup to the right short where it's fairly wide. I chose the layout with a little draw - if I hit it straight or push, I'm on the short grass with a little chip.  If I do hit the draw, it should be fine.  Bounce up from short, either on, or just short and right of the pond. 5h (200 yard club) and I got the baby draw, but it was absolutely pure.  Came up to the green and noticed the pond protected the entire green, not just the middle/left.  But I carried the green, ball checked up just 5 feet past the ball mark.  (Long putt for eagle - of course I left that short.  good birdie). (empty course, I went back and tried my 3h - same result, just ball unded up long and just past the fringe, but greenside.  Apparently I was destined to finally hit a good shot on this hole.  I took out 3 holes that previously were problem holes.  good day - these of the season has been killing problem holes.)
    • 2 really solid shots from my round yesterday. First was a 190 yd par 3, flag tucked about 8 or 9 feet off the right edge of the green. I aimed right at the center of the green, absolutely flushed a 6 iron as good as I've ever hit a 6 iron, pushed it a little bit, ended up exactly pin high 6 feet to the right of the flag, had less than a foot of roll from its' ball mark. Sunk the putt for a birdie.   Second was an approach shot to a par 5. I had 245 left, and was a couple feet off the edge of the fairway and had some really low overhanging tree branches about 20 feet in front of me and a pond that intersected the fairway about 30 yds further up. The rough wasn't bad at all so I had a clean look at the ball, so the plan was to hit a punch 3 iron under the tree branches and let it roll up hoping it would go like 150-200 yds or so. Moved the ball back in my stance, kept weight and hands forward, gave it a solid swing and watched the ball start out under the tree branches then as soon as it cleared the branches it started to rise and ended up landing just short of the green and rolled through the green to the back fringe. I was shocked that it managed to go that far. The ball flight looked like one of those "stinger" videos that people post on social media, it was really cool to see (even if it was somewhat unintentional)
    • The opposite is far more true. It's much, much easier to accept losing by blow-out than to accept losing on the last hole. In the former, you just didn't have it, you accept your fate earlier on, you were clearly outmatched, etc. In the latter… you had every chance to win and still couldn't get it done.
    • I’m scratch and I still 3 putt once a round. GIR is king, then its nGIR. One thing I noticed with some of my students is they don’t even know what lines to take the ball off the tee. Play to the safer side of the landing area. Don’t try to actively avoid rough. It’s not usually long enough to where it’ll hurt you.
