  1. We have what is called "Golf Expo" every spring. For the last two years I have gone and gotten the fitting for both my irons and my driver. It helps that they take the fitting cost off of my purchase. 🙂 They spent a great deal of time working with me and making adjustments to the shaft (multiple choices), the club head (on the irons - the lie angles), and watching me swing with my then current equipment. Yes. Do the fitting.

    Anyone play a seven wood?

    I play one. I call it my "LPGA" club. 🙂 It is the Titleist 917F2 21*. I hit it about 200+/- consistently. LOVE it.

    Ping G Series SF Tec vs G400 SF Tec?

    I would go for the one that is most forgiving, longest, and sounds the best. If they are equal there, then I would go with the newest technology.

  5. Hello all 5 iron or 5 hybrid? Which and why? I have the 5 iron (Ping G) in my bag. Pretty much only used for punching out of trouble. Ready? Go.

    Shorter driver question

    I have the 917D2. It measured 45" with the head on it. It is a regular flex with the Diamana Blueboard 70 (I think) shaft in it. I cut 1" off of it and everything straightened out and has gone long. After cutting it (the pro shop did it) I, at the recommendation of the Titleist fitter, put in the 14gram weight. That counteracted, so I am told, the weight that I cut off of the shaft. Went from hitting "spray drives" to mostly down the center. hit 251 and 274 yd drives yesterday.

    Ruined my driver shaft

    Go to your local golf place and try all of the clubs that you might wanna try, primarily for the shaft flex. See if the SR flex is good as you think it might be. Get a fitting and have a professional watch your and then make the recommendations. Just my 2c

    Recommend me a driver

    Go to ebay and look up the Taylormade Burner Bubble. Not much money, but seems to fit your parameters.
  12. I agree with all of the others. Get a proper fitting. For me? I was using the SLDR driver 12* with a Sr Shaft. I was hitting it a good 160 to 175 yards. I went to the Titleist Thursday event here in Sacramento. It is where Titleist gives you a free fitting session for what ever you are thinking of replacing. I wasn't thinking of replacing, but was curious. I went in, he watched me swing the club, said try this "catch the rain" (turning my hands over at the bottom of my swing). Ball went a little farther. He said - here try this. Then try this. Shafts, head, more shaft information. (he brought, all, ALL, of the shafts that are being offered for the clubs) I was fitted for the 917D2 with the Blueboard S+ 70 in Regular. I regularly carry 230 yards with roll out (some days more than others.) coming in between 20 and 30 yards more. I hit the M2, Ping G, M1, King Cobra F7 (can't remember which one), ... I hit everything that Haggin Oaks had in their super shop (we call it the library - you check em out and return em). 6 months later I am still hitting it straight (no on purpose shot shaping for me) and long...long for me. (I am 55 yrs young). I hit my 3wood roughly 235, my 7wood about 220ish. Go get fit at a reputable fitting place. You will not regret it.

    Driver Shaft Length Creep

    I wondered about this very subject. I would hit one in 4 or 5 right down the center of the fairway. The others were equally as long, but who knew where they were going to go. Spraying to the right? Spraying to the left? Bah. I read where Tiger and Ricky, as you did, used the shorter length drivers. So I started messing with that by choking up (or is it down) on it and hitting several with my hands in that position. Trying to make sure that the swing was essentially the same. I took mine down to 44" (rather than 45) as it was 90+% of the time right down the gullet.
