  1. I had a pinched nerve from a herniated disc back in November. Was so bad I couldn't lay down to sleep. In talking with my orthopedic doctor and the PT there, we were pretty sure it was golf related, and likely from some shoulder weaknesses (partial tear in the left one). Since I came back to golf in February, I have been doing a lot if the PT exercises (external rotation with band, straight arm push downs, etc), along with regular weight lifting. I have been focusing on lots of shoulder and back exercises. I have also been doing pilates 2 times a week, and doing ab routines 2 to 3
  2. Most pros are using drivers at least 45" these days. It used to be that shorter lengths were the rage. But now, with distance at such a premium, that trend no longer applies. Just go look at the WITB section of this site. The pros have figured out how to tweak the equipment to keep dispersion reasonable to gain any extra distance. For me, I play a 44.5" driver and have never gamed 45" or longer for any significant time. It works for me, as I hit the center of the club more often and don't lose that much distance (still swinging at 110mph or do at 50). I am also 5'8" and grew up playing a
  3. Just out of curiosity, what types of exercises did she prescribe to you?
  4. I have played extra stiff shafts for years and often ones that feel "boardy" to others. These (T6 and Avalon 6) are plenty stiff and I never felt that I was going to lose control with a stiff flex with either. Neither one feels boardy either. Robin nailed it with these.
  5. I LOVE the TS1's. Only club I have ever hit and the first contact (5 iron and not loose) made me say "wow, I need these!" I am building some for a friend who hit mine and loved them. To get the same feel as my sensicore shafts, we are doing x100 soft stepped one club and putting in the vibration dampening foam inserts you can buy at Golfworks. Not sure i could tell the difference between them. I would build one with a soft stepped x100 and give it a go. Stiffer, but playable.
  6. Here is my bag: Driver - Maltby STW 10.5 (hand picked at 10°), Xcaliber Avalon 6S, 45", D0 3 Wood - Maltby KE4 14 (hand picked at 13.5°), Xcaliber T6* S flex, tipped 1/4" more than standard. D2 19° Hybrid - Snake Eyes Quick Strike II, Xcaliber T6+ (older model), TS untipped to play softer (had this as my driver shaft before, it is a LOT of shaft).
