I hit my new driver Friday. After getting a few "bugs" out of the system the first few holes, I settled down and got into the groove with it. The larger head makes for more hittable contact...for sure.....but my stance has to be more grounded so I can hit that area.
Bottom line is I was easily getting it out there 20 yards from where I normally land the ball. The flight is alot prettier than the old low-bore flight plane. The high-fade arch also increased the roll after landing. I suspect that's where the big difference comes in.
So, I love the new driver, it sounds great (not tinny) the ball flies great, and the distance is superior to my old club. The best part is it was 40 degrees while I was playing. I'm excited to see what happens when I shed some clothes, and have more flexibility!!! I'll be going to the RTJ trail later this year, and am chompin' at the bit.
So, the next time someone tells you golfers today are much better than in years past.....look them in the eye, and tell them the equipment makes all the difference.
Thanks for reading, keep it in the short-grass.
