  1. on the other hand, would adding weight to a normal swing weight add distance?
  2. I had my clubs shortened 1.5" from the butt end, and they feel a lot lighter to swing. I also had them bent upright 2 degrees (not sure if that's the right combination of adjustments, shortened and upright)... but anyway I was wondering if I would technically lose any distance by shortening them and not fixing the swingweight to where it was before. The clubs I hit consistently now that I make better contact are... PW = 125yd 9 iron = 140 yd 8 iron = 155 yd these are all with 3/4 swings because I haven't been able to control a full swing yet.
  3. my friend has been hitting the ground on most of his drives, and the ball is either getting sliced to the right or pushed straight to the right I know it could be caused by a number of things, but what would be the most common thing? we are playing in a scramble tomorrow and I don't want to be the only one in the fairway
  4. it just seems my ball flight is straigter with the baseball grip that's why I like it so much. I seem to get a lot more distance with it too. Yesterday I hit a drive on the green which the card said was 285yds. I've gotten close before but this is the first time it actually got on the green (rolled on). And all my drives weren't getting the hook ball flight they usally do. Maybe because I installed oversize grips??
  5. just wondering what the most popular grip on tour is... I've tried all 3 and like the baseball grip the best... does anyone on tour use it?
  6. Has anyone had any performance issues washing their balls with bleach water? I have a bucket full of balls that I've used that I want to bring back to life by soaking them in bleach water for a few hours.
  7. maybe sanding it down like you would a motorcycle frame and getting it powder coated
  8. I would use invisible balls. They can't say my ball DIDN'T go in the hole.
  9. I don't think there is a certain reason, every course seems to make their own rules.
  10. I was wondering why he chose a 7 wood then a 4 hybrid that are about the same loft?
  11. I would love this kind of fitting myself! where exactly would I go? I assume Golfsmith is not an option like this, but I may be mistaken.
  12. At first I thought something was wrong with my swing, but then a friend mentioned I could be losing distance because it's cold. The past few times, I've been going when it's about 45* outside. My approach shots are coming up short. Usually from 160 I'm hitting a 7, but I've had to hit 6 and sometimes 5 to get it on or near the green. I'm really getting frustrated thinking it's my swing. Could I be losing 10 to 20 yard because it's 45 degrees (F) outside?
  13. I think the field is going to be very competitive, therefore the scores will be really low. I'm going with 17 under for the score and Jim Furyk as the winner.
  14. there's a guy around here that sells balls he finds for 20cents a piece. i've picked up all kinds of balls from him from top flite to titleist to callaway to taylormade. it's the first time i ever played a penta and i really liked it a lot, it felt really great. my girlfriend bought me a dozen nxt tour for christmas and a dozen for valentines day, and i am about out, and was thinking about trying out the z-star everyone on here is talking about. i like the srixon balls i find, usually play with them a few holes until i lose 'em in the woods or water.
