TESTERS WANTED - PADERSON GOLF SHAFTS


Recommended Posts

I know this feeling.   When I was in grad school in West Philly, my non-golfing wife found a cute little mother-in-law apartment in a house out in Ardmore by the train station.   I was busy, so we sign the lease sight unseen to me.   I walk to the station on the first morning to go to school and I see glimpses of a course through the trees across the street.  The train wasn't in sight, so I go take a peek.   This is where I was.

Walking distance to Merion.  I had to look at that every day coming and going to school for about a year and I never played it once.

It's interesting how many of the old classic courses have public courses close by - Brookline has one as does Oakland Hill and I think several others - same type of property but nothing like the great course that is across the street or adjacent - the architect does matter.

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

You couldn't sneak on for some bunker practice or a couple of holes in the evening? ;)

I'm not saying I never hit a ball on Merion, I'm saying I never played a round there.   Often the balls I may have allegedly hit disappeared into the darkness.   There is no fence at this point, in fact, there is a cart crossing path right by the entrance to the train station.

I didn't even get to play putt putt. :(  It killed me to drive past Palm and Magnolia every day.

 

All the information has been passed on.  The PGA Show slowed things down a bit.  Once there is more news, it will be posted.

I would love to test the paderson shafts! I have been reading/researching them for a while now. I like everything I've read about them but haven't been able to find them in stock for purchase. I am 0-1 handicap. 100mph  driver swing speed. I am 54 years old. I play a lot of tournament golf. I have lost a little distance since turning 50 and as like most everyone, am looking for a shaft with more kick. I'm playing a titleist 915 driver, 3 wood and hybrids. Ping Anser forged irons. Cleveland wedges. Thanks for your consideration.

Been gaming the Green for a couple months now.  This week, i changed my setup to go with a higher tee placement, more forward in my stance.  Then I make sure my shoulders are tilted so that my right shoulder is lower than my left with my hands in front of my left thigh.  This is giving me more air time and getting my drive out there in the fairway.  I am stoked that this setup with the Paderson will keep me in the fairway at 190 to 220 out. Some of my buddies have been asking if they could hit the driver and are very impressed with the results.  I preclude their hits with the fact that my driver shaft is 1" shorter than current drivers so they may pull it to the left a bit.  After gaming the Paderson Green for awhile, I definitely am striking the ball better and placing more shots in the fairway than I was with the Project Xv.

Driver: PXG 0211 w/Evenflo Riptide CB Regular shaft 

Fairways:  Cobra King F8 3-4W(16*) & 5-6W(20*) w/Mitsubishi ck Blue regular shaft 

Hybrid: Cobra F8 3 Hybrid(19*) w/Recoil ES regular shaft 

Irons: Wilson D7 5-PW w/Recoil 460 Regular graphite shafts 

Wedges: Cleveland RTX Zipcore(50*/54*/58*) w/True Temper Spinner Wedge steel shaft  

Putter: 33" Evnroll ER2 w/Evnroll Gravity Grip 

Bag: Vice cart bag(Black).  

Pushcart:  Caddytek 3.0 from Costco

Ball: Maxfli Tour CG & Titleist Pro V1x.

Another update.

 

Back to the r11s. I love that head. I feel like David Toms. I used to fit him. He consistently left 10-15 yards in the bag. But he liked the launch window of his gamer. that's how I feel. I hit the GBB farther. I love the flight of r11s.

 

It's still in the bag. never thought I'd replace what I had. All in all, it's turned out pretty good.
