Handicap Index

  1. Played a round of Golf at Crazy Horse in Hutchinson, Kansas. (Nice and Challenging) Although I only lost one ball and I played from the Men's tee, I was terrible. So, I rested up a few days and went to the Golf Center to be fitted for a new driver. I like Callaway and had been hitting a stiff shaft FT-5 driver. I warmed up with a 7 iron and then started with a Maverick head and a regular shaft. This caused a constant draw that I didn't much care for. Also, my distance was around 170 yards. Tried several different things and still the performance was pitiful. Finall
  2. Hi Fellow Golfers, I am looking to buy me a new driver. I really like my #5 Callaway Rogue fairway driver and hit it around 170 to 180 yards. Would a Callaway Rogue Driver with a regular shaft, 10.5 loft, be okay to just go ahead and purchase since I like my Callaway fairway wood so well? Or do I go through the process of being fitted for a driver and look at other options. I am 74 years old, with a 17 handicap, and have regular shaft woods and senior flex hybrids which I really like. I am currently using a Taylor Made FT-5 Driver with a stiff shaft. I do go
  3. I've been Playing Golf for: 25 years off and on. I retired from the military in 2016 and want to play more. With my new job I have time to get out more. But I have only been playing about twice a year. I want to learn more and play more. Getting discouraged with my play ends up pushing my clubs to the basement and I give up. I want to stick with it and learn to play better and enjoy the game. My current handicap index or average score is: Average Score usually high 90 to 110 My typical ball flight is: All over. New driver and relearning everything from grip to stance to swing The shot I
  4. Hi. I have a question and wanted to see what you guys thought. Some background: I'm not a particularly fast player (e.g., low to mid 150's ball speed with driver; low 120's ball speed with a traditional loft 6i.). I used to take the club back flat, come over it initially, but jump to shallow it out. I had a strong grip and I had days where a nice push draw was achievable; other days, it was military golf. Nowadays, I play with a more neutral grip and have much less dynamic movement. I more or less play with some forward shaft lean at address and feel like I hinge the toe up qui
  5. Hi All, I have been hitting a Tour Edge Driver with a 12* loft and a 12* offset. Senior Flex. (2017) It has been disappointing. It brought my distance down to 200 yards and sometimes less. (Carry) I finally went back to my Ignite (Nike) 450cc and no offset with a 10.5* loft. Regular Flex. (2005-2006) Immediately, my control came back and my distance went back to 220 yards and a little more sometimes. I was hoping to get back to 240 yards and probably will as I build my strength back up. The Ignite Driver is just a little heavier and somewhat harder to control when I
  6. I've started hitting some awful tee shots lately, my bad tendencies come out most with driver so i'll attach the video of my driver swing. I have been hitting it absolutely everywhere sometimes a pull slices other time a push fade. Any feedback is more than welcome. Thanks
  7. PING - Blogs Pretty good article from Chris Broadie, the head of fitting science at Ping, showing the advantage of hitting the ball straighter. Outliers like Bubba Watson (he's mentioned in the article) aside, better players tend to curve the ball less. That makes sense. Straighter shots are more accurate and more predictable, so it would lead to better golf scores. Chris demonstrates the effect of large curves by using a tour pro's impact variability and simulating straight shots ( average of 0° face-to-path) vs a big draw (average of -6° f
  8. I've been Playing Golf for: 20 years My current handicap index or average score is: 80 My typical ball flight is: straight/weak draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Short drives. Videos: I'm 6' and 200 lbs.; pretty strong and flexible. I feel like I should be hitting 280-300 yard drives. Is it that I'm not generating enough clubhead speed? Releasing too early? Out of sync somewhere? In the head-on video (video 1), I can see an early release where my wrists uncock before impact. I never would h
  9. This video sums up my frustration as a golfer. I can usually hit my irons, hybrid and woods just fine, but when it comes to my driver, consistency is out the window. I imagine I early extend, as seen in the video, with every club, but it’s always most apparent in ball flight with my driver. This shot happened to fly fairly straight, but often, the ball won’t get more than 10 feet off the ground and severely Duck-hook left. Or, the opposite will happen, with the club face being left wide open and the ball traveling miles to the right. I feel like I’ve tried everything, trying to feel weight i
  10. High everyone, I have got myself in a bind and need some advice and some thinking, other than my own. In 2018, I ordered a Tour Edge, Hot Launch 2, Driver with a 12* offset. Picture below. I think my loft angle is also 12*. (Maybe Not 12* Loft) It has a Senior Flex Shaft. I really like it. It is easy to hit and 99% of the time is straight down the fairway. If I have a really good fairway lie I can hit in out in the fairway. (About 210 to 225 yards off the tee, at Fort Hays playing grass greens) The problem is, the ball flies too high and I lose distance. I play
  11. Hello Everybody, I have really been improving my iron ball striking and getting some straight shots, which is great. However, my driver has fallen ill. Every swing lately has been a low hook that goes left and stays left and usually ends up unplayable. The last time that I was hitting the driver straight, I found that moving the ball unnaturally far back in my stance (about the middle of the stance or maybe even a touch back) gave me a straight-ish shot. However, the ball was still very low. Logically, I think I should start looking at my club head at address to see if it is clo
  12. Please help! My drives fly out good for 50 yards and dive to the earth. 1 out of 10 I crush. Driver is 10*. I know the mere possibility of topspin is a hotter debate than creation vs evolution. I hope the embed works. If not here's the link. https://vimeo.com/333190194 I've been Playing Golf for: 6 months My current handicap index or average score is: zero My typical ball flight is: bad The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: driver Videos: https://vimeo.com/333190194
  13. Recently torn intercostal muscles on left hand side. Was wondering if there's is anything wrong with my swing that has caused this or whether it's just overuse as I've been going to the range a fair bit. I'm very new to the game so have no idea really how to analyse the video. I know I could swing a bit further back on my back-swing but other than that, not much idea. Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks I've been Playing Golf for: 3 months My current handicap index or average score is: Don't have one My typical ball flight is: Slight Draw The sh
  14. PING Introduces G410 Drivers with moveable weight Technology Significant advancements in custom fitting while delivering golfers the highest MOI’s and ball speeds available highlight the new PING G410 Plus and G410 SFT drivers. The multi-material drivers are available for pre-order today, and custom fitting at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning in mid February. Ping G410 Announcement From Ping:
  15. Bought a new to me shaft pull Hzrdus black 6.5. Cleaned it all up and went to install the adapter and noticed there was alot of pressure. Got it installed and tried it out and it was like a steel rod. My average ss is 118 and I have a pretty aggressive transition. Pulled it off and tried to clean the tip out. Got 3.5 inches into the shaft and it was still solid?!? Did something change? Are shafts not hollow anymore? Dont want to dig further in and break something.
  16. In line with another thread about which driver you own, what factors went into buying your current driver. You can select more than one factor. I can add more factors if anyone has good additional ones.
  17. Hey guys. Earlier this year I tore my calf and was in a walking boot for 6 weeks. Ever I’ve come back, I’ve had a nasty slice. Before I was working the ball both ways with ease. I have had a couple golf buddies it looks like my hands just release late. I can. Hit a draw and fade with everything but my driver. It’s getting frustrating. I’ve tried an in to out path for a draw but it just seems to be a push slice. It may be hard with no video. But does anyone have some ideas?
  18. How are you long ball guys wrapping your drivers ? I’ve went to the same set up as my baseball bats , using lizard skins .5 wraps seems to help the wrist actions swing speed is around 136mph when I really go for it with the long drive shaft golfing shaft is like 129mph
  19. Hi, this is my first post. I would appreciate some advice please. I have got old irons (Mizuno Pro II t zoids with regular steel shafts) and a Mizuno 600 driver (approx 2009). my handicap is 4.9. my fairways hit with driver is 53% greens in reg 36%. I have a shotscope 2 which is excellent for feedback. i went for an iron fitting but the quote was £2000 which is too expensive for me. The main benefit with the new irons would be 18-20 yards more distance per club. The dispersion was not improved. I have booked a driver fitting tomorrow.
  20. I used to be able to hit driver. It wasn’t always accurate. But I still hit it. Now something has gone wrong.... my swings off and I can’t figure it out. I can feel it though. In my wrist. It’s like it’s rolling. But I can’t find a swing plane that keeps the wrist from rolling. I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers? I have a scramble tomorrow and I would like to be able to carry my team on drives because they’re older gentleman(40-60) and I’m 21 so I’m hoping to get this dialed in by tomorrow. If I can get the swing plane and wrist down right I can get the accuracy down quick. All m
  21. So im going to be buying a new shaft for a driver i bought. dont like the shaft at all. its a 915D head. When i cut the shaft how should i measure it? I need a 43 inch shaft, thats what i was fitted for. So is that measurement from the tip of the adapter to the end of the shaft before i put the grip on? Or do i cut the shaft at 43" then put the adapter on? Thanks in advance
  22. Hi everyone, First time here posting a thread, loving reading prior to this but never participated, but now i desperately need people help lol. Ill start at the beginning. Im 28 and have been playing 15 months and am currently handicap 12.7. I started playing with a friend old beaten up idrive 12° driver aldilia vx reg shaft, and man i could bomb that driver, apart from pros i could outdrive anyone and exceptionally accurately too, were talking landing on greens on par 4's (all the while not being able to hit a single iron haha). But as christmas came around and i was get
  23. So here is my situation. I was playing a Ping G25 with a tour x-stiff shaft and 10.5 loft. It was about 5 years old and about 2 weeks ago, it snapped due to a bad swing. Being that it was 5 years old, I opted to check out something different. I went to a place that does club fitting and I registered a swing speed between 99 and 111 mph with an average being about 106 mph so a move down to a stiff shaft was recommended. After trying a Ping G400, Callway Rogue Sub Zero, a Titleist 917 D3 (I believe) and a Taylormade M2, I decided to take the Taylormade. I hit all of the clubs pretty similar
  24. Hi everyone, I'm in the market for a new driver, but trying to keep cost down. I'm currently looking at the JPX 850 and the Callaway BB Alpha 816 BBD. Anyone used either and which would you good folks recommend? New here, so thanks in advance:)
  25. Ok, let me start off with that I am 100% new to the game. Went to the driving range for the first time today. I have my driver set at 11. Hit 75 balls and maybe 5 got decent loft. The rest were line drives about a foot off the ground. Please, any tips or opinions would be appreciated.
