Sean/Maryland
Callaway Mack Daddy 3 58, Callaway SureOut 60, Callaway Mack Daddy 3 54
Strengths: 50 yds and out, I'm usually on the green and fairly close to the pin. Accuracy and loft are strong. / Weaknesses: Under 50 yds--especially close to the green--I have a tendency to pull the handle and get wristy trying to "flick" the ball onto the green. Working on that.
Handicap: 18
