A reduction in dimples decreases drag. End result, crazy long drives. Pro V1 is the highest spinning ball on the PGA tour. After test driving both offering, the front range golfer agrees. Want to hit longer drives? Pick up a dozen!
Michael Breed interviews at bay hill. It’s nice to Johnny Miller with a club in his hand. He just said Tiger is now working on a “Johnny Miller” move! Brazen Miller…love it or hate it. I love it…
Part of proper club fitting is to make sure your clubs are proper length. If they are too short, you’ll most likely hit the ball thin and/or on the toe. Bad posture is also a result of a poorly fit golf club. With ordinary tools and a little know-how, you can lengthen your clubs.
In this example, I’m extending steel shafted clubs. Follow similar steps for graphite shafted clubs. You can substitute a pipe cutter for a hack saw and make sure your utility knife has a hooked blade.
Now your ready to re-grip your newly lengthened club!
Next time on the the Front Range…..
I will be relaying a discussion with Colorado’s Titleist Rep regarding all of the new gear for 2011!
Everyone knows of the success Bob Vokey has achieved while making wedges under the Titleist flag. For the most part, all wedges follow the Cleveland 588 mold. They typically have heavy swing weights (D4+) and a traditional shape.
Currently, I’m in the market for three. I’m replacing my Cleveland CG14 (52,56,& 60 degree) wedges with the same lofted Vokey C-C oil can variety. There is a lot of talk regarding bounce. The reason wedges need bounce is to prevent the leading edge from digging into the ground or sand and to “bounce” through the turf. Less bounce is more conducive to playing tight lies while more bounce would benefit in the sand. It is my strategic plan to diversify my attack clubs with a low bounce 56.08, middle bounce 52.08, and high bounce 60.10. With a fresh set of grooves, a new set with multiple options is sure to boost your confidence inside the scoring zone!
Things to keep in mind while wedge shopping
As April approaches, now is a good time to start upgrading your equipment. Till next time, putt for dough people…
