  1. Philosophy One..Your aim is to hit fairways to allow best chance of greens in regulation, and in so doing, score as low a gross score as possible. And you try to use similar clubs to greens as Pros would do, because you play from tees that make this possible. Hopefully you shoot more pars than double bogeys. This tests your skill. Philosophy Two...You do not play from tees that allow shots to the greens with similar irons as Pros might use. You are happy to play woods,hybrids or long irons to many par fours and par 3's. Your preference is to allow the handicap system to compensate for your shorter driving distance, knowing you are unable to reach most greens in regulation. You often score more double bogeys than pars. You prefer tees that most members use.
  2. A 70 gross....(par 72) pretty pleased with 9 under my age. And on a course that the LPGA pros averaged 74 last year...won by Brooke Henderson.
  3. My test results..Drivers..using range balls(est -- 20%) Taylor Super Tri R9 11.5* R flex (mine).. Compared to Cobra Biocell 11.5* & XXIO Ser 8 10.5* Launch 11.2* 11.5* 12.1* ...Carry 167m 182m 191m Distance 195m 208m 213m Peak Ht 15m 18m 21m Also tested the Taylormade SLDR and results were about the same as the Cobra. My normal driving distance on the course is 225m(15% less than the Tour av of 260m(290yds) Photos..any XXIO website. I have completed similar trials for both Fairway woods 18*/19*......and 3x hybrids...18*/21*/24*. Results are of similar proportions to the driver data. I bought the XXIO fairway wood and the 3 hybrids back in April....intend to buy the driver soon.
  4. Tried the XXIO Series 8 driver using the technology at the local range and discovered it carried 15m further than m Taylor Supertri...and with a degree LESS in loft....
