  1. To me, over 300 yards. Not that 280 or 290 isn’t long, but I’ve seen a bunch of golfers max out to 280 and think it is 300. A true three bills will draw a compliment from me during a round.
  2. Posted this in his WITB thread earlier but just noticed this thread too .I attended the 1st round at Colonial yesterday with my dad and watched Jamie play a handful of holes. All of his tee shots, driver or driving irons, sounded different than most other guys we watched. Most noticeable tee shot was on #2. It is listed at 389 yards but the tee was moved up just a little bit so it was probably playing around 375 yesterday. He hit driver and was legitimately five paces off of the front in the green in the fairway. Very high ball flight. Unreal. On another note, his short game was really bad ye
  3. You're going to love that driver, man. I still have 4 of the original Rapture drivers all with different shafts. I also played the Rapture V2 for awhile in the past. Great driver and I think if the shaft fits your swing type fairly well, then it will stack up against the current clubs distance-wise now. Such an awesome driver.

But he's still young and can figure that out, I hope. Missed cut
  5. Anyone else been exploring the Gankas pivot? I've been watching a lot of videos of Sam Snead because that is a source of his teaching. Always watched a bunch of his Instagram videos. I've always been someone that kicks my right knee towards the target very early in an attempt to get weight on my left side. This pivot is foreign to me but when executed properly, I've hit some incredibly pure and longer than usual iron shots. It almost feels more like my old baseball swing where I'm staying more centered a little longer and rotating harder without the right knee going internal. Anyways, just wan
  6. Srixon makes some really good and underrated stuff. I play the Z545 driver and love it. Ball speeds off it still beat the current 2017 drivers for me. And I'm the only person I know among all the people I've played with that uses a srixon driver.
  7. Love those wedges. Have both the 58/09 and the 58/12 wedges. S400 shafts in both. Also have 12 total replacement faces. Will be using these wedges for the rest of my golfing life haha.
  8. The FG Tour irons rock. Do any of yall remember the Adams Idea Tech A4 Forged irons or the Adams Redline irons? That rounded sole was so good at turf interaction and preventing digging. Wilson brought one of the Adams guys responsible for that sole design over to Wilson Staff a few years ago. You can see the resemblance in the V4 and V6 irons, as well as the F5 irons. Turf interaction is so outstanding in those models and it's not a coincidence that the rounded sole popped up out of nowhere for the Wilson forged models. Keep 'em coming, Wilson Staff!
  9. Started birdie, birdie, birdie, double bogey, birdie, birdie on my home course last April. Shot 34 on the front then forgot how to play golf on the back nine and shot 44 for a 78 total.
  10. Snapped the shaft on one club and bent the shaft on another during my high school golf days. Those were the last 2 times I've ever broken a club as my dad made me pay for them. Realized I'm not good enough to get angry nor is it worth it to cover the cost of a club broken out of anger.
  11. Maybe they wanted to make sure no one stole it from them? just kidding of course. I agree it's a expression of being unprepared. There are several ways to clean the ball off without licking dirt and pesticides. Hah what a wonderful spelling error on my part
  12. I've never met another golfer in my lifetime that licked his or her golf ball. What in the world compels people to do that? Extreme lack of common sense?
  13. I forgot where I read this little suggestion but it was written somewhere that one simple way to find out what the maximum course yardage acceptable for a golfer is to multiply his 5 iron distance by 36. Now I'm not recommending this, so don't jump all over my fault in logic here. I just happened to find this interesting because the suggestion is based purely off of a golfer's distance. This DOES NOT take into account handicap, or other skills such as accuracy, short game, etc. Nonetheless it can offer you an idea of what type of course you could compete on if your game is enough. And it makes
  14. Exactly the same here. I hover right around 175 for my 7 iron. Play 52 and 58 beyond my PW, I just bend them 1 degree weak. Easier decision making and I'm comfortable with partial shots. Anything that keeps me from over-thinking and helps me commit more to the shot at hand. Take away all doubt. Plus I find it easier to play the numbers game off the tee with longer clubs. My scores are always lower with less wedges and an extra long club.
