    Bombs away

    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
  2. 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.
  3. 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. I just dont don’t know whether I should change my irons or driver? I’m finding hard to decide and don’t want to waste a lot of money. My driver clubhead speed is 103.5 Thank you Kind regards

    I Need Urgent Help Guys

    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 my other clubs are accurate. 915D2. Even though it doesn’t matter. Just thought the Titleist guys would help me quicker
  5. 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

    Help with driver!!!

    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?
  7. 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 getting better i thought it would special for my partner to buy me a replacment for my boom stick. So i looked around and got my heart set on the wilson fg tour f5 driver, the thing just looked gorgeous to me. Now due to the distance i was getting with the idrive, perhaps stupidly got it with the stiff shaft(50 gram fubuki z), that was my first mistake, turns out i have a swing speed of 90-96mph and couldnt hit the damn thing. So a couple of months later a friend gave me a aldilia nvs 65 lite tm-3, lovely looking shaft and looks fantastic with the wilson head, the complements i get on the looks sometimes makes me giddy. However no matter how i hit the club (centre face, nice controlled swing) or how high or low(i prefer low, the red shortees if everyones familiar) the peak of my ball flight is about 5- 10 yards off the grounds, for a little while i thought i was closing down the face, but this isnt the case no matter what i seem to do the ball just wont get up. So ive been looking at info online and on ebay and read the nvs has a low kick point whereas the fubuki z has a high point, and bearing in mind i feel the wilson head is quite heavy, very heavy against say a tm rbz, i was wondering if this is where my problems are coming from? As im hitting the ball with a heavy head is it flexing too much? See, i dont mind spending the money on a 3rd shaft (fubuki z 50 reg) if its going to solve the problem, but this isnt the case and i do, then ive wasted stupid money just to end up getting rid of the thing and probably going for a cobra f6.... Please any insight from people who know what they're talking about would be soo appreciated, and i would certainly owe u a drink. Oh, and should mention due the the low ball flight i use the 0g weight and my old driver being set quite high, i set it at 11.5 deg the next setting up would be 12.5 deg and i just feel that would be ridiculous. Please no tee suggestions, if the tee exists ive tried it. Thank you very much in advance
  8. 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 similarly with the exception of the Titleist. I chose the Taylormade because I seemed to have a lower spin rate and the ball flight was more consistent. The problem is, I'm consistently hitting this driver 25-50 yards shorter than my previous driver. I am keeping it in the fairway, but I had no real trouble with that before. Does anyone have thoughts regarding the loss of distance?
  9. 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:)
  10. 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.

    My Swing (Greenshirt100)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 16 years My current handicap index or average score is: 2.5 My typical ball flight is: medium-high draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: snap hook Videos: DL FO
  12. Hey everybody, I’m pretty new to golf and just purchased a used Cleveland Classic 270 driver from second swing to upgrade my starter set driver. It was rated an 8. The club looks great except for an ugly scratch on the face. Must have hit a rock or something. Looks almost like a nail was dragged on it. So does this ruin the club? I can return it if so. I just honestly don’t know how much it will affect the ball when hit. Hopefully you can see in the pictures, the scratch starts under the shaft and travels down to the bottom center. Thanks!
  13. My shoulder isn't 100% and it's going to rain, but f*** it I'm going golfing tomorrow.

      Go for it!

  14. Hello all, I have been golfing for 7 years and playing competitive golf for 4 years and for the past 8 months i have been almost unable to drive the ball of the tee. Used to be a +1 handicap and now shooting in the 80's losing 4 balls a round. Not only with my driver, but also my 3 wood or even hybrid. My misses are crazy left, starting left and turning left. Unplayable. But on the practice range, i hit my driver fine. I even hit my 3 wood and hybrid fine on the course just not on the tee box. i have noticed that my grip feels strange and sees the grip changes at the end of the swing. does anyone have any idea what this might be?
  15. So I was looking at reviews for the new Ping G400 driver with its crazy MOI which approaches 10k. I currently have the fairly new Ping G that I bought new early last year I think. The MOI is closer to 5600. There's obviously a big difference there, but I'm not sure at what point the numbers become irrelevant. My point being, assuming an MOI of 5500 may be a huge practical advantage over one of 4K (just throwing out hypothetical numbers), would there be a linear correlation to the practical differences between one of 8k and one of 9500? At some point are those differences not of practical significance? I hope that question makes sense.
  16. Good Morning, I have finally got some extra spending money to re-shaft my driver shaft that I broke last month. The club is a taylormade burner super fast 2.0 10.5 degree loft. Would it be best to just get it re-shafted with the stock shaft (if thats possible) or is there a particular shaft that would be beneficial for me to try out (22 cap, 95-100 mph swing speed average)? Do you guys typically buy your shaft online and have it re-shafted at a local shop or just have the local shop turnkey it? I am fairly new to details about my golf equipment, and I have always just used what came off the shelf. This broken shaft is giving me an opportunity to explore it a little deeper..just curious as to what to get and where to get it.
  17. Hi. Having an old Ping G10 460cc driver head lying around, I thought I would try to install a new shaft. After considering multiple shafts, I decided to experiment with a steel shaft for the first time in my life (with the driver), due to price and curiosity :) The trimming instruction for the shaft reads: A. For M1 metal woods add 1 1/2" tip trimming, for M2 metal woods add 1" tip trimming, for blind bore add 1/2" tip trimming, for through bore do not add to tip trimming. (Applies only to True Temper Dynamic Gold wood shafts) Not knowing what M1, M2 and bores are, and not being able to figure it out using google, I hope there's some help here :) Does anybody know how much to tip trim to fit the G10, or how I can find out on my own? Any help is truly appreciated, thanks!
  18. Well yesterday I was on Trackman trying to get my shot zones (which was not what I hoped it would be, but thats a different story) and during my driver swings I broke the shaft on my driver!! Caught a couple shots in a row near the heel and all of a sudden it felt like my driver head was loose. It took two more swings to figure out what was causing the feeling, and I looked down and sure enough my driver shaft had a crack in it. I was pretty bummed because I was really looking forward to hitting driver more often, due to what I read about the distant gradient in LSW. Looks like I will either be hitting 3 wood or a Taylormade Minidriver I still have until I can afford a new driver.
  19. I'm having a hard time producing the right launch angle on my driver, last week I worked on a trackman and my carry distance with my driver was on average about 215. My ball speed came in at about 139-141 on average but my launch angle was only at a 9. I haven't shot higher then 82 in the past three months but I feel like if I can get my drivers distance up a tad I can have more shorter irons into greens. I have a stiff shaft that came with my driver (titliest 915 d2). My swing coach says that usually if a players ball speed is under 140 is best to stay with a regular shaft. I'm right on the edge of regular and stiff, will getting a regular shaft make a considerable difference? How can I get my launch angle up to 10-12? Thanks!
  20. Hello there! I went to get fitted for a new driver fully expecting to get the Epic, but turns out the new Ping G400 LTS is the club for me. It keeps my spin rate down low enough and I was getting an extra 15 yards or so of distance from my current driver. However, the club fitter fit me for an after market shaft at $400. I just can't afford to spend almost $900 on a driver right now, so I am going to just purchase one of the stock shafts from Ping but I am looking for some help selecting the right one. I was fitted for a Mitsubishi Diamana W series 60, which of the shaft options would be best for me? The G400 LST Alta Stiff shaft (59g) or the Stiff Tour Shaft (61g). Any suggestions on which would be closest to that one? Thanks!
  21. New G400 driver released this week on tour. No official details yet. Crown looks similar to the G except with the addition of some dimples. No composite crown so I'm guessing the benefits will be better aerodynamics with the dimples, new sole design and slightly smaller head size (445cc). They're also using tungsten weights which is something new. As with the G30 and G there will be 3 versions of the driver, standard, LS Tec and SF Tec. LS Tec Version, tungsten is more forward than with the standard head. This is the version I'm using in my G30 so I'm interested to give this one a try. Bubba's driver.
  22. Hey everyone, I've played golf a few years ago in high school and been to the driving range a decent amount of times and I've decided that I'm finally going to take it up as a sport. I'm down to my final club choice, and it's my driver. The choices are the Vapor Fly, Vapor Fly Pro, Covert 2.0 and Covert 2.0 Tour. I'm looking for a club that has the most forgiveness over distance right now. Swing speed is around 85 most of the time. Don't always strike the ball clean, hence why I need the added forgiveness. Which would you guys recommend? Vapor models would come with the Diamana S+ 60 Blue Board shaft and the Covert models would have the Kuro Kage Black. Is the difference between the Pro and Tour models that much of a difference? I'm thinking yes and it's more of a choice between the Vapor Fly and Covert 2.0 but that's why I'm here asking. Any advice would be great. Thanks.
  23. I'm interested in Michelle Wie's swing in 2017. So far she's returning back to her peak level. I like her shortened upswing and controlled downswing. To my surprise, this "stinger-like" swing doesn't cost much distance at all. Check this out, comments are welcome!
  24. I have a Callaway Big Bertha Alpha with a stiff shaft (my irons are super stiff, my woods are stiff) and I can't hit it very far. I can hit my 7 iron 145-155 using a typically relaxed swing (i'm not trying to hit it very hard), I can hit my 3 hybrid 200-210 and a 3 wood as far as 225 yards off the tee, however I can only hit my driver an average of 230ish. My longest drive was 290, 250 yard drives are somewhat uncommon and 200 yard drives are relatively common. I can post a video if needed but as of now I'm curious about anything people have done when they were in a similar situation. I should also point out its 9 degrees and set on -1 loft and on a draw setting, I usually hit it relatively low, but I can shape my shot to go higher/lower if needed.
