  1. From your comments, I think the SZ was a better fit than the standard Mavrik. It sounds like with the ideal strike, your numbers are very good, and with heel shot mishits, the SZ will help to keep the spin number down. If you went with the standard Mavrik, those heel shots would spin very high and you'd likely lose distance. I would definitely take a one way miss over being able to consistently shape the ball both ways, as others have said.
  2. I read at one point, in an article talking about Tiger's stroke, that the average golfer cannot replicate their putting stroke more than 4 times out of 10. Obviously, depends on what the article was using as "the average golfer," but that stat was something that I found pretty interesting. Most golfers (including myself) would like to think they can replicate the shortest stroke on the course multiple times in a row lol.
  3. Face path: 75% Path: 68% Overall Consistency of the stroke was almost 80%
  4. I know many people are saying that it is a perception thing, and maybe it is for some. I was on the SAM putt lab and my stroke is about as SBST as it could be. At contact, I was 1.9 degrees left, and the path is essentially a straight line back and through. I use a face balanced Spider Mini and I try to have as little arc as possible, as I feel like I get too inconsistent with rotation of the face.
  5. DJ couldn't hit a fairway to save his life yesterday... obviously not the driver's fault, but he is definitely going to be doing some tweaking.
  6. Yeah I realized that you are in Scotland after I sent it... lol

  8. I have the 2016 M2 with a 60 gram stiff Fujikura shaft that I might be interested in selling if you decide on wanting one.
  9. The 2016 M2 in my opinion is the best driver Taylormade has made since it was released. I've never hit the 2017 M2, but people I know that have it, wish they had the 2016. I know many people like the M3-M6 range, but personally the ball does not go anywhere near as far off the face as the M2. I also think that the 2016 M2 is the best looking Taylormade driver. I have the 2016 M2 3 Wood with the stock shaft, and it isn't leaving the bag anytime soon.
  10. I'm a member at Independence over in Midlothian. If you're looking to join somewhere, I don't think there is a better deal in Richmond. It has to be in the top 3, condition wise, in Richmond right now behind only Kinloch and CCV's River Course.
  11. Completely agree with you. As you said, the shaft plays a part in optimizing the spin, but you definitely can't put it into any head. In my driver fitting recently, I had to move to a different driver head instead of replacing the shaft because I needed a head with a forward weight. The only three drivers that I could get my spin numbers optimal, even with a very low spin shaft, were the Epic Flash SZ, Cobra F9 (weight forward), and the Ping G410 LST. Shaft is important, but there are still differences between driver heads.
  12. It's funny you commented about the sound. I'd hit the Cobra F9 (driver I was fitted to) indoors multiple times at Golf Galaxy and then Club Champion. I loved the sound indoors, and when I hit it on the range it sounds completely different. That has actually taken some getting used to because it is very muted compared to my Epic that I was using previously.
  13. I recently got fit for a new driver at Club Champion. While I can say the entire experience was worth it, the major flaw with Club Champion is hitting indoors on a simulator. I know that it is the "standard" to get fit indoors with wind conditions and other variables potentially affecting the fitting, but I hated not being able to see the true ball flight. The first time I hit my new driver on a range, the flight was not appealing. Definitely has taken some getting used to, and at the end of the day, it added 20 yards from my previous driver so I can't complain too much. As far as the actual fitter, he was very knowledgeable and was able to rather quickly get spin numbers and launch angle to where they needed to be to optimize distance.
  14. I have the Gapr Lo at 19 degrees. While it feels amazing if you consistently square it up, if you miss the center it will punish you.
