Should YOU Play a Longer Driver?

November 21st, 2020

Well, the search for distance is continuing with a lot of PGA Tour players following the lead of Bryson DeChambeau, even though he will not be using a 48 inch driver in the 2020 Masters.  The maximum USGA driver length is 48 inches, the same as the limit on the Long Drivers of America tour.  Each added inch can add 1-2 mph to your swing speed.  So, potentially, you could add 6 mph which can translate to 15 – 20 yards going from a 45 inch driver to a 48 inch driver.     Schedule YOUR Driver Fitting Here! Having fit numerous golfers for Long Drive competition, here are some thoughts on how to add distance while adding length to your driver. You MUST Continue to Hit the Sweet Spot! It’s all about getting the best smash factor (ball speed divided by clubhead speed), not just ball speed.  If your ball speed only goes up 2 mph, you are NOT hitting the sweet spot.  Use face tape or Strike Spray to see where you are making contact.  If you are hitting towards the heel due to the longer length, it increases spin and reduces effective ball speed.  Try moving away from...

Xcaliber RT Iron Shafts

October 31st, 2020

The new Xcaliber line of wood and iron shafts will definitely live up to the expectations of Xcaliber founder, Robin Arthur.  Robin is back at it after a brief hiatus and his new line of shafts look to be exceptional.  We will be reviewing the entire line of Avalon and Mystic shafts next week.  But first, we will look at his newest design, the RT (Rapid Taper) iron shaft.   Xcaliber RT 75 and 95 These shafts have a very unique design with the shaft tapering significantly  about half way from the butt to the thinner tip section.  The result is that testing with over 100 golfers hitting #6 irons saw an increase in clubhead speed of 2-5 mph.  We have seen the same thing in our tests with both the 75 and 95 gram version.  And, the beauty is that, with the proper fit for stiffness, these shafts will also tighten shot dispersion.  Sign up for your Iron Fitting Today to see which Xcaliber RT shaft may fit YOUR swing!

NEW Callaway Apex MB and X Forged 2021 Irons!

October 18th, 2020

2021 Callaway X Forged CB The X Forged CB is constructed from a forged 1025 carbon steel chassis and incorporates a multi-material weighting system to manipulate head weights without effecting exact CG placement. Beginning with the body, the housing of the hollow body design has the addition of external tungsten (standard at 17 grams) weighting system that can go up or down in weight depending on the needs of the player. The idea being that now Callaway has the opportunity to fine-tune swing weight without adding weight to the inside of the hosel, which is a common practice. The issue with that is it can adjust the CG of the golf club, resulting in inconsistencies throughout the set.   Tour Response “Very positive,” according to tour manager Jacob Davidson. “We have multiple staff players testing and/or putting them in play including Na, Kisner, Gooch, Garnett, and a few others.” … “Players are liking the meatier feel at impact and the added forgiveness all while keeping to what they can expect from an X Forged profile.”   2021 Callaway X Forged Forged CB specs Loft/Lie/Offset 3: 20/60/.135 4: 23/60.5/.130 5: 26/61/.125 6: 29/61.5/.115 7: 33/62/.110 8: 37/62.5/.105 9: 41/63/.095 PW: 45/63.5/.090...

Bryson DeChambeau 2020 US Open Champion

September 21st, 2020

The naysayers said it couldn’t be done in a US Open but Bryson proved them all wrong.  His sub-par performance was the only one in the field.  Now, I am a bit of a scientist myself, but Bryson takes every aspect of his game to another level!  Here is how he did it! Bomb! After adding 40 pounds of muscle, Bryson also improved his club and ball speed.  Bryson is averaging 325 yards off the tee.  He is leading the PGA Tour in strokes gained off the tee as well.  Now he is experimenting with a 48 inch driver to add even MORE ball speed.  He wants to break 220 mph ball speed which could easily get him to 350-360 yards.  Crazy?  Mad?  He proved distance was key at the US Open. Gouge! While hitting only 41% of fairways (23 of 56), Bryson managed par or better on all four of his rounds.  His attacking style out of the major rough was crazy to watch but it worked.  No one else in the field seemed to be able to master not only the rough but the touch necessary around the green. And, Putt! I watched Bryson on the practice green at... Read More
