headcover is seen a few times in Mr67 bag pics... not sure if it's in play though.

 

Say what you want about the Hi-Bore... it's a solid head and probably fits alot of ams well if they could find the right shaft and get by the looks. Cosmetically at address it does not bother me at all.

David Howell has never has never taken his 460 Comp out of his bag since he started using it.

 

I didn't see a lot of the coverage yesterday but i've just heard a comment that Vijay put the driver he used to win last week back in the bag. Didn't he use a HiBore last week? Did anyone get a look at what driver he was using.

could it be that a number of the cleveland players are just such "tradionalist" with there equipment that they are having a hard time adjusting. i know toms has said repeatedly that he can't adjust to the ball flight of the hibore.

 

also, the sq and hibore seem to run out a lot more than most drivers. could it be that they would prefer the lower trajectory, higher spin so that the ball doesn't run out of the fairways into the rough. i don't know, just a thought.

The hi-bore hits too straight for most PGA pros. The MOI is so high that it is hard for them to move the ball around how they want too. They have to REALLY exaggerate 'their move' (whatever that might be) to hit their draw or fade which messes up the rest of their swing with their irons.

 

thus they don't use it. Winged foot had a lot of holes with doglegs where you needed to shape your shot a lot which the hi-bore is again not designed for.

 

I have heard some rumblings that they are making some "tour only" hibores with different COG locations to cater to the Comp players. This i can't verify but the other stuff is from a PGA tour player's mouth.

The Comp sure wasn't straight for old VJ at the open. I guess that is what he wanted :friends:

You see a ton of SQs in the field and I think it has the highest MOI of them all. I am sure the Nike guys could have kept their ignite in play because it is more workable. The HIBORE hits it too high. PGA pros do not hit their drivers that high. You would end up with a 6.5* driver or lower to get the trajectory they have. But if the comp is working then dont switch.

not all the SQ you see are SQ. the one that jason is play in an old nike that is just painted to look like the SQ. jason said that tigers is the same thing.. nike is doing this so it looks like all he pros are playing the SQ

 

Tiger's driver is definately not an ignite painted yellow. It is an SQ max tour, and it has the large footprint. Gore, however, uses the tour model, that is very similar to the ignite. Many players are switchng to the max though.

From someone playing the Tour Issue HiBore, I can say that this thing is truly an amazing club. Off-center hits find their way back to where you were aimed and are almost as long as solid hits. The ballflight is a wee bit higher than a normal driver but this thing takes off running once it hits the ground. It is fairly workable for hitting small fades and draws and has retarded amounts of control. Overall I am quite shocked having now played this club that it is not in more tour staffers bags. I think part of it is that the driver is very very sensitive to tee-height and I am sure many pros are stubborn when it comes to changing something about their routines...overall I can say that I am quite pleased with the Tour HiBore....and am sure that the retail is a quality product for most players.

how is your distance compared to your taylor made?

softer fairways only a few yards longer.....normal dry fairways another 15 or so yards longer because this thing has such a piercing trajectory it just runs and runs and runs...unlike the lovely floaty ballflight I got with my taylormade....I should say that the HiBore is sufficiently good it is my gamer...and its easy to have confidence in it...

 

 

 

now if only my putting would improve and i'd stop putting badly on slower greens....hmm..but thats another story.

I too have a TXXX serial Hi-Bore and hit it pretty damn high.. higher ..if not then my 11* FT-3. Shaft is Tour Shqqx which really didn't help bring down the flight all that much. Day1 I really hit it well, day2 well I did a Phil and hit 3 fairways.

 

My wrist is making me play some pretty poor golf right now, but the HI-Bore is a solid stick. My ballspeeds are on average 1mph slower then my FT-3 which says alot IMHO. Once it get this thing dailed I'm looking to lower my handicap sub5.
