Handicap: UP 14.4

Driver SS: measured at 107avg, real world probably closer to 100.

Current Ball: Taylormade Project A


Additional comment. When selecting a ball, I generally don't care much about driver playability, as I generally only swing a driver 3-4 times a round. What I care about is iron playability, so if this is all about the old 'longest off the tee' schtick, I am probably not a great candidate.
