What driver and fairway are you gaming this year?


Recommended Posts

My 13.5* Srixon F85 w/ Even Flow Black 70 shaft is not leaving my bag.  Been using it for 1-1/2 years.

Currently have the PXG 0811XF Driver in the bag but it's not staying.  Deadly straight, but it doesn't go any farther than my 3 wood.  I haven't been able to find a driver that is as straight as my 3 wood (or the 0811XF), that goes any farter than my 3 wood.  The F85 is a BEAST

Driver: Titleist TSi2

3Wood: Titleist TSi3

5Wood: Titleist TSi3 
Irons:  TEE C721
Wedges:  Callaway CB
Putter: T/A Impact 2 - Wide

Um...no.  You have an oddly specific definition of boring which is both interesting and mildly creepy...

Ts3 8.5 w/Hzrdus smoke A1 setting   X2hot 2 deep 12.5 w/ stock tour green. Surprisingly versatile, can hit it high, low, draw, cuts. Bomber off the tee and deadly through the wind off the tu

It works for me - suggested by my fitter.   Also have my same iron shaft in my driving iron - that works great too

SIM 9* Accra RPG 472 M5+ Std loft setting, weight halfway towards toe -  super stable and spin/ballspeed are optimal for me.

 

PXG 0341X Gen2 15* Graphite Design AD-DI 8X  Face is 2* open in standard loft/lie setting as ordered and weights are currently standard.

 

I'd like to get a SIM Ti 5w, turn it down in loft and put my Accra Tour Zx475 M5 in it.  I had the M5 3w and it was too long and hot into greens.  Or try some of the new Diamana or Ventus Velocore Blue shafts in the fairway.  Though pretty happy with my gear right now.

SIM 9*, Accra RPG 472 M5+, 45"
PXG Gen 2 0341X 15*, Graphite Design AD-DI 8X, 43"

This year? I'm not sure both will make it through this month 🙂

 

Right now Cobra Fly-Z and Ping Anser 4w. The 4w is pretty safe, but I've tried to replace the driver twice (Titleist 917 D2 and Cobra F9) and keep ending up coming back to the Fly-Z. Eventually something will come along that will stick.

I don't change driver but every 5 years or so.  This should have been the year, but I opted for an iron fitting instead.

 

Driver:  2016 Taylormade M1; 10.5 head at 9, Rogue Silver 70s @ 44 5/8" 

3w:  RBZ stock shaft/length

 

I'm thinking about ditching the 3w for a 5w.  I only use 3w off the tee when driver isn't working...I rarely hit it off the deck unless my score is already garbage.

10* TSi3 A1 setting (currently), BB6X in it now but have an AV Blue Raw 65 TX coming in about a week to try out against it.  Plays 44.5".

 

16.5* TS2 C1 setting, with the stock EFW T1100 in stiff that just seems to work.  Will be trying to get my hands on a Ventus Blue 7X to try out in it later.  Plays 42.5".

How do you like the AV raw blue TX in the TSI3?

Took much longer to come in and I only got my hands on it a week ago (friend custom ordered a TSi2 with that shaft for me) so haven't had enough time with it, but so far (just 2 range sessions) I really like the feel.  

 

I had been hitting the ball ok in the Spring and to this point, but was searching for better feel, which really ended up sucking as performance wise everything was ok with the shafts that I had.  So much so that I impulse bought a G410 LST 9* head and was going to put that back in the bag as it is what I had last year (harder feel, but consistent and knew exactly what I would get from it).

 

I still want to get my hands on a Ventus Blue 6X and RDX Blue 6x, but quite content right now so not going out of my way to over spend on either shaft right now.

It's in my sig.  SIM 2, 8* w/Ventus Black 7x tipped 1 inch.  SIM 15* w/either TB 80x or Ventus Blue 8x.  Both tipped 1.5 inches.  I have either given my old faithfuls to my brother or cousin or sold them.

Last year I was gaming the Honma TW747 460 in 10.5 weight forward with the stock Vizard 60 Stiff and a Taylormade M6 Rocket 3 Wood 14 degree with a stock Atmos 6S.

 

This year after testing I put the Sim 2 Max 10.5 with the Stock Kuro Kage 5th Gen Silver 60S in the bag. After awhile I decided to loft down to 8.5. I absolutely love this driver. Best all around driver I've ever played.

 

Three wood was a pain to find. After lots of testing I decided I wanted a larger profile very forgiving but low lofted and square sitting 3 wood with a high launch shaft but one that wasn't overly spinny. The Tour Edge C721 in 13.5 with the Ventus Red 6S has finally fit the bill. Had a par 5 today where I hit two absolutely gem 3 woods from tee and deck to the back of the green.

Driver:  Taylormade M3 440cc 9.0° (Tour Issue - 9.9° actual)

3 wood: Taylormade M4 small head 15.0° (Tour Issue - 15.1° actual)

5 wood: Taylormade Sim2 Max 19° (Tour Issue - 19.1° actual)

 

I need to keep working on the 5 wood to see if it is staying in the bag.  Not sure yet or if I'll go back to my 2 iron hybrid.
