    • Going to be waiting to test out the 932 line until early next year. Going through lessons to make swing changes and I’m back on my lifting program. Had a trackman session and I’ve lost about 5mph over the last year from cutting back on strength training. Going to piece everything together before getting some new sticks
    • Interesting subject=== My grip size is odd by conventional thinking. If you go by grip charts I need a Midsize or Jumbo because I wear a XXX glove. Not so for me I use basically a standard because I mostly hold the club in my fingers. One of the ways I manulipulate the club. On grips for me it depends on the paticular club both by number on the club and the brand and what shaft is in it. I have an uncanny sense of feel but again I do some odd stuff to conventional thinking. Like my Muirfields they have old school GP Victory cords and they hit good for me. I did not build those but whoever did knew their stuff because they balance good. My infamous Mac Hogans I built those and used GP Wraps and they are balanced. With the shaft combo they feel and hit well. Now I do some total out of the box things. My driver I have a old school Maltby cord on it as I do the 7 wood 9 wood and 50* Vokey. The 3 wood I have a GP Tour Velvet. The Vokey 58 has a stock Velvet on it.  Now on grips themselves the thickness of the material may differ. Also if I am blueprinting building a set I weigh everything. a set of like Tour Wraps may vary from 1 to 2 grams of published specs. Also if I am blueprinting a set of irons I use all the grip tape from a single roll because thickness and weight may vary too between rolls of even the same brand. I also take the dial calipers and check my row of tape to be consistent and check the diameter of the finished product.  Basically I say it is what ever feels good to you in regards to brand and model type. Remember to quote an old saying your hands and grip are the point of contact with the club. If you have a comfortable grip then there is no tension. Tension transfers up from the hands to the rest of the body affecting the overall swing. But good luck all that I have posted here comes from my experiences and experimenting. Never be afraid to experiment
    • Ditto and I am approaching 64 with an average driving distance the same (if I strike it near the sweet spot which is about 50-60% of the time). All I do know is that overuse of my right arm tends to cause very errant shots which is why I try my best to swing like female golfers with a nice languid rhythm and not too much 'hit' impulse.  I always find it amazing how far the ball can actually go when you can time and release the club properly with a more natural rhythm (that fits your own body) while also hitting it close to the sweet spot.
    • Couldn’t have put it better myself 😅 it’s the lack of all that is why I can only drive circa 240 at 68 yrs old 🥲 Watched the vid, and whilst I am physically unable to keep to my lead arm as straight as she does, I’m sure I can work on the balance and attention to what the rear foot is doing.    I’m inspired particularly because it’s not a classic swing, she’s not a tall girl and I can certainly keep me rear foot flatter for longer, thanks 🙏   
    • I’m thinking if you keep doing as much analysis as you are you’ll never be satisfied, just my thought. Personally I have ‘normal’ hand size but prefer a Golf Pride CP2 midsize for last couple of years, it’s so good I completely forget about the size etc  when I pick up a club in a shop with a ‘normal’ grip it seems like a pencil, way too thin that I have to grip harder. Suggestion: go for the one you have ‘so far’ deemed to be best ‘for you’ and play for a few rounds. It will surely feel either OK or not, if not go thinner or thicker 😀
