  1. I decided to take the day off work today and decided it was a good time to get 18 holes in. Didn't play too well and ended up shooting a 97. My game was off again, except for the driver. I did hit one in the trees on 3, then hit a weaker shot that ended up on the right side of the fairway. If I could stop pulling the ball, I would be great. This driver just wants to hit them straight. I sliced one on 7, but the tee shot is tight and I don't want to pull one into the houses. It's a mental thing. Sliced another on 1, but all my other misses right was me over compensating for the pull. I didn't hit a lot of fairways, but that more of a swing flaw than the driver. See also: pull. I hit my second and third longest drives ever on 17 and 18. The 17th is an intimidating tee shot. I hit it well enough to be in the fairway, but I just over shot it and ended up down the hill and landed in the area of the red arrow. On 18 I hit it with a little draw and it ended up getting a good bounce. It wasn't a great day ball striking or scoring, but it's definitely not the driver's fault. I guess I need to spend more time on the short game. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. This should be a great review, Tour Edge has a reputation for great fairway woods. It's going to be interesting to see if a $299 driver can keep up with the more popular OEM's. This is a great group of testers, and I can't wait to hear what y'all think. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. Nice video Shankster! You weren't kidding when you said this shot would result in a draw. I watched it go up and the could see it turning over. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. Great pictures Shankster! I honestly think the angle is pretty good. Have you thought about a tripod if you're wanting to get a higher vantage for your camera? I picked up a 50 inch one at Wal-Mart for about $16 that I've used for swing videos and it's been great. The only problem I've had is making sure I'm in frame good. Thanks for the photos! I was worried that my ball flight on the good shots I've hit were higher than you described (at least the ones I didn't blade), so it's good to see confirmation that these match up well with the ones I've hit. I'm hoping to hit the range this weekend and I'm definitely planning on going to the practice green to work on this. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. I always did mine on day 2. I kind of liked breaking up the pattern during the week just to keep it kind of fresh. I've also noticed, for me, that anytime there is a new move introduced that my speeds go down until I get used to it. To any of you who are experiencing different misses, it'll take time but it'll become more manageable. Like you, I really struggled with pull hooks for a while, and still do occasionally. It's getting better, but I think in trying to swing faster it does build some habits that you have to be aware of while on the course. For me it was a longer backswing and a steeper angle of attack. With practice, I've seen better results on the course. I do still tend to pull the ball and most of my misses are left. I guess I'm the odd man out when it comes to what's gained speed. My driver is fast! My irons are still going about the same distance, but I've always had more tension in my iron swing. I had a set for years I just couldn't hit and it's stuck with me to this day. I guess I just need to let the wife know I need more practice. [emoji2] Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. Keep up the good work, you'll start seeing improvements soon. As @Trial&Error stated, you'll start seeing your own patterns begin to emerge. For me, the real jump in training speeds happened in week 4. I've also noticed that during the next two workout protocols that I see a pattern of regression at the start of a new protocol and slight gains here and there up until two weeks before the end and that's where I see my best numbers. The final two weeks my speed goes down a bit. As far as driver speed goes, you will see gains probably between weeks 6 and 9, it takes a while for everything to click. When it does, it's amazing. I'm still in a maintenance phase right now but I'm planning on jumping back into training next week once we go back to ten hour days at work and I can no longer play during the week.

  7. I'll occasionally bring along a cliff bar, they're filing without weighing heavy on my stomach. If I buy something at the snack bar, I'll pick up a pack of peanut butter crackers, a bag of Doritos, or a candy bar. My drink of choice is always a fruit punch Gatorade.

  9. I've definitely seen a difference, the ball goes a lot straighter than before. I will still occasionally slice one, but even that is a lot less severe. Most of my misses now are just straight up pulls and those get in line and stay that way. I'm looking forward to seeing how you guys hit the F9 and how it performs. That was the driver I was drooling over at the start of the year. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  11. Thank you! I was really surprised at the end of the round when I saw the stats. Not the approach, chipping, or putting ones - I knew they were terrible, but I just can't get over how good this driver performs for each of us. Everyone is just killing it!

  12. Note to self: never go to the course and try something for the first time without putting in a little more practice than a few balls in the backyard. My game was so skully today I had a guy chasing me with a sword shouting something about power and Greyskull. I did get on the practice green after my round and figured out I was not completely following your advice on how close to get to the ball. I was setting up probably between 18-24 inches from the ball. Once I moved closer, I saw much better results. I really like this setup and now I'm going to spend more time on the practice green to see if I can hone my ability with it. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. I got out after work and was able to get nine holes in. My entire game was a raging dumpster fire with the exception of the driver. I ended up shooting a 53, but had the lowest driving handicap I've had for a round yet. Plus, I averaged 229 off the tee on a day where we had enough rain to make the fairways soft. My round highlight was my tee shot on three, while it wasn't my longest it was the most significant to me. When I started the SuperSpeed training I had two goals, be able to reach the green on 12 off the tee and hit one over the creek that crosses 3. I was finally able to clear it today. I'm still amazed at the forgiveness that Callaway was able to pack into this driver, I hit one a bit on the toe and still got decent yardage due to a left to right slope on the eighth. I'm really not happy with the overall state of my game today, but I'm ecstatic with how the Epic Flash Sub Zero just keeps performing. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. I could do that, I'm a master of the skulled wedge. I did get out in my backyard this evening and give this method a whirl. So far, I'm pretty impressed with what I'm seeing. I was able to dial in a decent shot at about thirty feet. Nice spinny shots with a lower trajectory that were landing near my target (my wife's crepe myrtle, don't tell her).@Shankster I hope your shoulder starts feeling better soon and thanks again for sharing your knowledge.

  15. Great job on the stage two's so far! I'm actually in agreement that the back of the club is busier than necessary. I bought last year's sand wedge and love the looks of it so much better. I was surprised to find they didn't offer a different color this year, as they had a black oxide finish last year. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
