  1. Fair answer. I suppose that's what the fitting is for.
  2. I should have stated that whatever clubs I end up going with (I'm going to get fitted) will be a lighter weight head like the Mizuno B heads or the equivalent in another OEM. So that should help keep SW down. I don't know a lot about shafts and just wanted to get a feel for what's out there. I'm most familiar with DG, but I'm sure KBS, Nippon, Rifle, etc. have good options in light(er) weight steel shafts. I just don't know what they are??
  3. Yeah I was thinking something midweight. The 120's or 105's if DG. I don't know a lot about shafts so I don't know if other brands have good options also?
  4. As title states, looking for recommendations for light(er) X-stiff steel shafts for overlength irons. Doesn't have to be superlight. My next set of irons will start with a 37" PW with 3/8" gapping and looking for something lighter than DGX100 (for example) to help keep swingweight down as much as possible.
  5. I have been listening to him (only 3 lessons). I'm not sure yet if he's a good match or if I need to keep looking. I know there are some knowledgeable guys here and just wanted to see if anyone had any drills, setup changes, etc. that would aid me in hitting down more other than me thinking "hit down more."
  6. Not really. He just kept saying hit down on it more. I was able to do it, but it felt like I was just chopping down on the ball. On video I can tell my rotation stalls a little bit and I get a tad bit flippy.
  7. Stock shot? I usually draw my irons, but can miss both ways with driver.
  8. Had my first ever lesson recently. Coach used Trackman and video. Two things that he pointed out from TM data: 1. My AoA was too shallow. 7i AoA averaged -2 and driver AoA was +5. He said he wanted me to hit down more with both about 2 degrees to get my AoA with 7i to -4 and driver to +3. I was a touch flippy at impact and could use a little more shaft lean. 2. My club path was too neutral...really close to 0. He said this makes predicting curve difficult b/c it requires a 0 face angle which is really difficult. He said he'd rather me swing more in to out and increase path to +2-3 or vice versa. To fix this he had me start swing with more weight on left side and it did seem to move path to the right. Curious what this forum thinks about the coach's feedback and any tips/drills/thoughts to improve either?
  9. Let me know if you decide it's not for you and want to sell. I've wanted to try it myself.
  10. I can do that. I think shoulder stiffness is definitely an issue.
  11. Ironically, like Tony Finau or DJ. Tall, thin.
  12. Does speed come from how fast we can move our arms and/or how much force we can "pull" on the grip?
  13. I recently saw my swing on video and was surprised at how short my swing is. I know I don't have a long swing, but was surprised to see it this short. Not as short as Tony Finau, but pretty darn short. Unfortunately I cannot generate speed as quickly as TF. I assume it's my body's way of protecting two herniated lumbar discs. Are the only ways to increase hand path? 1. Become more flexible/mobile for more rotation 2. Bend lead arm at the elbow 3. More trunk extension at top of backswing Thanks
  14. Overcome in a day!? Please show me the way...
