Get the Right Shaft to Hit Your Driver Straight AND Long

October 13th, 2019

Get the Right Shaft to Hit Your Driver Straight AND Long Bombing and Gouging The problem with bombing off the tee and gouging from the rough is that for us average golfers, it only works 13 percent of the time, according to a study done by Golf Digest and TrackMan.  But we also know that getting 20 more yards off the tee can drop up to 3 strokes off your game.  So the real answer is to hit your driver long AND straight.  The secret is getting the proper shaft to make this happen! Book Your Driver Fitting Here! Getting the Right Fit We always advise you on what happens when golf shafts are not right for your swing.  A lot of golfers that have never been through our fitting process, think that the majority of their miss-hits are caused by their swing.  And 25% of golfers are having trouble with their drivers (see Poll at the right of this blog).   Fortunately, that is not always the case!  We help golfers of all abilities hit longer, straighter drives by selecting the proper length, shaft weight, shaft flex, swing weight and shaft profile (trajectory and spin) for their unique swing.

Get Your 2020 Clubfitting While Your Swing is Still Grooved.

September 11th, 2019

Get  your 2020 clubfitting while your swing is still grooved.  Now that the season in the northern climates of the world is getting a little cooler, take an introspective look at your game and then go get a good clubfitting.  Don’t wait until 2020 as there are a lot of new head, shaft and grip options hitting the market this fall, and your swing is still in good shape from playing this season. The first thing you should do is take a look at where you were successful (putting, chipping, driving?) and where you struggled (hybrids, distance gaps, accuracy with irons?).  Be honest and think about where you lost strokes and what happened (thin, fat, poor contact, slice, hook?).  Your fitter should ask you a lot of questions about your shots and what you want to accomplish:  Improved Accuracy?  Increased Distance?  More Consistency?  Then you should concentrate on what segments of your game are costing you the most strokes and eroding your confidence. Our 2019 Player Survey indicates that the biggest “problem” clubs in our golfers bags are Long Irons (31%), Driver (25%),  and 3 Fairway Wood (24%).  It’s time for a fitting to get those problem clubs fixed!

More 2019 Customer Success Stories

September 10th, 2019

“I’m not sure how much regular feedback you get but I want to thank you for my driver fitting (PXG).  I had shortened my driver by an inch and lost distance and accuracy.  My new Mitsubishi stiffer shaft has been a phenomenal improvement.  My 190-200 drives are consistently 220-230 and straight (well, mostly straight).  Thanks, Dan.  That was money well spent.” Ron Knight “I have had 8 birdies and 2 eagles in the first 4 rounds with my new clubs.  I have the confidence to just swing the clubs now.  Dropped .4 off my 7 index in the last 4 rounds.  Thanks again!”  Jim C., Aurora, CO

The Best 2019 Driver and Shaft Combinations

September 7th, 2019

We are intrigued every year by the Golf Digest Equipment Hot List and which drivers win the Gold Medals.  Then, various forums, and ourselves as well publish a list of the best drivers.  Some are very independent and some are not.  Doesn’t matter.  What our customers are looking for is what are the best driver and shaft combinations that we have fit so far in 2019.  We believe that the shaft is the part of the club that has the most impact on distance, consistency and accuracy, so that is why we are including our shaft recommendations in this list.  We like the categories as used by  GolfWRX in their recent article but we think there are more in the mix for slower swing speeds.  We will also throw in our Honorable Mentions in both heads and shafts.  So here goes: Schedule your fitting HERE to see which driver and shaft combination works best for YOU…  Swing Speed 106+, Distance Over 250 yards Fitting Tips:  Typically 75 gram shafts but smoother tempos can play lighter weights.  Firm mid section and low launch, low spin is the norm for more control.  Driver lofts 8 to 10.5 degrees depending upon angle of...

Are The Premium Irons Really Worth It?

August 19th, 2019

It started with PXG.  Well, no, it started with HONMA.  And the other Japanese companies like Miura, EPON and Royal Collection.  But it was clear from the start that PXG was differentiating itself with premium designed products and premium pricing.  What has followed has been a continual introduction of premium products, especially irons, by many of the major companies in the golf industry.  Titleist CNCPT, Callway EPIC Forged and the new TaylorMade P790Ti are the latest releases in this space.  Some are available now while others will be available later in the Fall of 2019. So, schedule your fitting and find out which of these new premium irons will work best for you! Premium Designs If you look at the majority of the new introductions like PXG, there definitely are some advanced engineering techniques that are potentially causing prices to increase.  The combination of forged bodies, thinner face designs, hollow heads with special fill elements make the manufacturing process to assemble these irons more expensive versus traditional forged or cast clubs.  Are the materials more expensive?  Maybe…steel prices have gone up somewhat. Search for Distance AND Forgiveness So, there is no way a manufacturer can provide a more forgiving iron to... Read More

TaylorMade 2019 P790 Irons – Improved Look and Performance

August 16th, 2019

The TaylorMade 2019 P790 irons offer improvement not only in the look of the club but overall performance. Still packing the Speedfoam injected inside the hollow head, this gives the ultra-thin (7% thinner) new forged 4140 face the support it needs to generate higher ball speeds and better feel.  Slightly thinner topline and anti-digging sole for better turf interaction. By the numbers Increased sweet spot by 22% for better performance on off-center hits.  Slightly smaller heads from 7 iron on down for a more pleasing look. Higher launch for better drop and stop on the green with longer irons. Available in 3-PW, AW both Left and Right handed. Our Take While we only had the ability to hit the demo clubs with the Dynamic Gold 105 VSS shaft, we all liked the look and the feel.  Could not really tell much about launch comparison versus the 2017 P790 so that remains to be seen in our fittings.  As with most major manufacturers, all of the heads in the set are individually designed so the loft increments look a little different, i.e. 2 to 3 degrees between 3, 4, 5 and 6 irons and then 4-5 degrees between 7, 8, 9,...

Callaway EPIC Flash Hybrid

August 12th, 2019

While we really liked the Rogue design, the new face design of the EPIC Flash hybrid is a cleaner, more sole forgiving look. Schedule your fitting appointment and check out these new hybrids! Technology As usual, the ultra-thin face cup combined with the Jailbreak Technology creates super fast ball speeds and lower spin.  Better MiM’d tungsten weighting creates better launch conditions and more forgiveness.  And, the light weight carbon crown allows for more weight in strategic parts of the club head.  Only bad thing is the new lighter weight adjustable hosel is unique to this model so you cannot swap out the Big Bertha shafts without changing the tip. Specifications These hybrids are available in 3, 4, 5, 6 lofted models with 18, 21, 24 and 27 degree lofts.  Lofts are adjustable up to +2 degrees and -1 degree so there is a lot of flexibility in lofts to help you dial in your distances. Bottom line If you like a little more rounded sole (think TaylorMade M6 or Ping G410) and want the adjustability and thin face distance, this new EPIC Flash hybrid is just the design you have been looking for!
