  1. Played both shafts (s and 6.0). Tour V is incomparable in many ways - great concept, excellent shaft. Another option is to give the $-taper playing time.
  2. 0. make it harder for yourself in training. 1. take a flat piece of ground. 2. put two balls in in line. one at 5 ft the other at six ft. of the target. 3. play pool. first pot the bal at 5 ft. 4. if done well the second ball is at the spot of the first. knock it in too.
  3. Eg. Go to the mmt taper spec sheet. The line up is that for some flex/weight the longest shaft is 39, another is 39.5 or 40 inches. Now take your pick. You only have one chance to choose the correct one. (unless money grows on your back) It will be a guess. What shaft makers could do, is to provide a bit more information eg. a cpm number based on club head weight and length would be a good starting point. From here it should be easier to select the right shaft. In the old days Golfsmith offered a recommended range of driver swing speed or #6 iron rssr.
  4. MMT is far more shaft than the lz imho. If you really want to tone it down try the oti in s. It's bloody expensive but this een shaft for feel players.
  5. This question trickles me as a clubmaker. After 25 years of club making I consider the spare component market to be flooded with more dimensions, adapters and specs available than in the old days. In comparison to older club heads, some modern heads have in common: lower loft, lower weight and often longer club length. For ordering tapered shafts I always followed the guidelines of the manufacturers: #6 shaft goes into a #6 head for a standard set. However, since OEMs are literally screwing up clubs the new #6 has moved up to be an old #5. Or even
  6. RBZ Tour 16.5 18.5 22 for a long time. To be replaced with Miz clk 16 19 22.
  7. Depth or length?! Interrelated but not the same. If depth is all right a good way to feel length is a hard stop. 1. Stand next to a wall (wall left for right handers) 2. Make a backswing 3. Touch the wall softly with the clubhead due to the bump only in transition. This will separate possible overactive body parts (arms, wrists) If the above drill is too easy; practice the same drill with a narrow pole and touch it; the key is to learn to sense the head in position.
  8. Take approach with a positive angle: two types of sand may teach you to become a better bunker player. For greenside shots: To me, softer sand implies more of a splash shot. While a thicker structure requires a bit more of a long thin scoop. For The first one I use Pete Cowen’s technique or Jack Nicklaus’ method. For the second type of sand shot I make sure to create a long narrow divot and move the sand well into the direction of intended ball flight. I think Iteach shows it somewhere on yt.
  9. yes. Try the grip by LAB-golf. It is designed that way.
  10. The point I want to make is not about having a streak - it is about prevention of forced errors. However, after a string of 4 birdies why a not try to add another?! So What made it a bad shot? The strike or the strategy? The route he chose was all about perfection. With a drop off to water and bunker in play this was not the percentage shot imho but the only one to judge is XS; probably his coach and maybe his caddy. The disbelief in his eyes after the third shot overshooting the green says it all. That was cruel.
  11. Schauffele has all the shots. He just needs to play the right shot at the moment. Missing the first tee shot on 16 was a forced error - trying to prove too much as I interpret the situation. It is unfair to put down his loss on hole 16. He lost the match on 3, 4 and 5 with silly mistakes. The bump and run on 3; the wide bunker shot on 4 and the approach far over the green. The resilience Xander showed after hole 5 - is a great asset. He will win his major(s) and the US Masters being one of them.
