  1. I have never had a bogey free 9, let alone 18. I think 5 or 6 par streak tops. OP, very cool!
  2. Thanks. I wonder why priority method different for #1 and #2 ties.
  3. I did this. Came away with a new F9. OP, don't be bashful in asking to hit as many drivers. Do not get pressured into buying anything unless you are certain yourself. Only other thing I would suggest is that since you are just getting back to swinging after years, maybe give it a month or two to let your swing settle before a fitting. Of course if your heart is set on an immediate purchase then have at it. My rule is mama don't ask when she wants new shoes and daddy don't ask when he wants a new bag (ahem...driver)..:))
  4. Wow..the first thing I noticed is the width created in the back-swing!! Outstanding.
  5. So I checked today with baby powder on face today in my backyard net. Switched the weight back and forth. Long story short for some reason I am catching the ball half inch higher on the face with weight forward fairly consistently. I also noticed it sounds heavier instead the high pitch tinny sound.
  6. Agreed.. your A4 looks night and day better in pics above.
  7. Hope you don't mind my posting on your thread, but doesn't the rock skipping motion work for you? Nothing specific but I think it works for a lot of folks as a general feeling of open impact.
  8. Hard to say. We went back and forth few times to see If wasn't doing something different, but couldn't pin it on anything that I could feel. I even hit the white version with both settings. My guess was it reduced the vertical gear effect by bring MOI higher up the face and hence knuckling down spin a bit even on shots with contact low on the face. Relatively speaking. It was interesting though.
  9. Cobra F9 (Yellow), 10.5 degree Fujikura ATMOS (Stiff) for me. TM M5 was not-so-close 2nd. I considered the white but the yellow was just too pimp to pass up...lol. Sound/feel/carry/dispersion were ALL better than anything else. The spin dropped from 3,900 rpms to 2,100 rpms as soon as he moved the 14 gm weight forward. Carry went up by 14 yards over 10 shots on an average. I even managed to get a couple of carries in the low 240s (that is a big carry for me) on the LM. Clubhead speed was avg. 4 mph higher than M5. Best thing is the shot zone seems like it shrunk to almost 80% of my current one and the flight is mostly straight with less curve. I am hoping to have a good season..
  10. It boils down to the fact that nobody has a higher opinion of Phil than Phil. Which is why he has always taken a very high percentage of low percentage shots.
  11. So, during the interview he explained that he thought there was enough opening/gap between the net and ground to squeeze it through. I actually buy that, but to attempt it right handed with an upside down shovel clubface made me shake my head. But he insisted it was an execution gaffe more than planning. Of course, the only time Phil ever admitted to a bad choice was in 2006.
  12. I'm envious. My dad had no interest in sports, we never had any bonding activities. So I try to do everything with my kids including golf. Anyway, my neighbor back in 2000 showed up with a bag of 25 diff assorted clubs he picked up from Cash Converters and dragged me to a local range. I remember being extremely mad I couldn't make contact more than once out of 3-4 swings and came away with some skinned ripped off my palms and fingers..😊. Anyway, couple of years later another hack buddy at work took me to the course and then slowly got into playing more. I was a high handicap until about 4 years ago till I got some help here.
  13. Ha ha, FWIW, he is still a damn good bet.
  14. Lol.. Phil gets a bit distracted from common sense when there's an opportunity to show off his 'otherworldly' talents. I love Phil.. Ha ha.
