  1. as someone who decided (after 20 years with a Slotline blade) to switch to an Odyssey two ball fang, toe hang.... the main difference I notice is that the two balls help me align my short putts faster, and better :) not sure about all the other details, but I agree with Patch's tips and have tried them. I'd suggest practicing with some alignment sticks, too. double check that what you see as the correct line, is actually the proper line on the green.
  2. agree you can loosen and tighten with a torx bit screwdriver, nut driver, rachet.... HOWever, the golf tool has a torque limiter which won't over-tighten the screw. I guess some of the screws or seating threads are not made of thick steel, perhaps even aluminum, in which applying too much torque can strip the threads 😞
  3. disclaimer note: I play with old clubs: ping eye2 coppers. wow, I had a R7 9.5* S for 10+ years. just upgraded to 915 D2 10.5* S 2-3 years ago.... was fitted for either R or S Diamana 60 shaft. I prefer the S and set to 12* slight draw. took me several rounds to dial it in. swing speed around 88-90. can drive 220-240 with intentional fade or straight and sometimes a draw. I am about a 20 index. With the R7, could only hit straight or fades, no matter where weights were placed. still 210-230. ================= Don't know your swing speed or your index... but I like the 915 D2 - more than M1, M2, Callaway epic. Ping G 400 was good, but I hit the 915 a little farther... I think the D2 shaft is only 45", and sometimes I choke down an inch.... for more control. Hope you could demo both clubs, but D2 is pretty good. I would not count on various adjustments for fade and draw to correct swing flaws, unless you normally hit fairly straight. Then you can tweak a bit with adjustments. If you don't hit more than 230 yards, I suggest setting at 12* loft. as hangtime is your friend 🙂 If your swing speed is mid 80's or less, use the regular flex shaft. and even try the lighter 50 gram shaft. there are some D2's with a red shaft (light weight).
  4. there should be several tiers to this Rushmore Hall of Fame... but at the peak: Arnie, Jack, Tiger & Ben because you're asking who's synonymous with golf; like who do you think of when golf is mentioned... not who has the most majors or wins...(those are different evaluations)
  5. just a miscellaneous thought: anyone compare these top players' struts?
  6. obviously one's height is a major factor. but overlooked is length of arms.... long arms may work better with shorter shafts.... and visa versa. agree with others that checking the lie angle should be first adjustment, before cutting the shaft. ============================================= hey, what about those equal length shaft irons? those might be good for the shorter player, who is not comfortable using long shafts?
  7. I agree with getting the body in shape and toning the muscles. Pretty hard to get significantly stronger at our age though:( To build up swing speed, I would also try stretching exercises on regular basis; not just before playing golf.... Stretching and flexibility can help keep your swing 'long'. ================== I've read somewhere that delaying your release, actually making sure you don't hit from the top, can increase swing speed, or at least release the speed closer to impact zone, where it counts the most. perhaps a refresher lesson from a pro can spot some places your swing could use a tip? =================== assume your request for swing speed is like asking for more distance. If so, maybe get fitted to a club, i.e. driver than has plenty of loft: e.g. 12 deg; and a shaft that maximizes your swing energy. with that swing speed, you want to keep the ball in the air as long as possible. ======= are you striking the ball in the sweet spot? a slightly shorter shaft might increase your hits in the sweet spot, and we all know those go further than off center hits. you just might get longer by hitting the sweet spot more consistently :) would bet those would be in the fairway, too!
  8. guess it depends how much disposable income one has to spend on toys.... or if one considers it a status symbol to show off ?
