New bats. Driver to LW. Thanks Srixon.

I would say I am jealous, but that would be the biggest understatement in the world.

How did you end up choosing those Tensei Pro shafts? 

Was lucky enough to test them prior to ordering them.. The ball flight is flat..  I might need to dial the loft up for the winter, but I think I will love it in the summer, or at the coast.

 

Took them directly to the range for a short workout and a session of Hugo's Range Challenge.  My Range Challenge score was 19 at 10 yards wide.  I am pleased.

+1 for me too on this question. It's incredible the driver has Hand Crafted Hzrdous Black as a stock option. Was the Tensei Pro an upcharge and did you get to test it head to head against the Hzrdous?

I did. I am fortunate enough to be in a location where I can test just about every configuration that Srixon has. My sales rep was kind enough to bring out the Hrzdus Black version to my range, and I tested that vs my Ping G400 with Hrzdus Yellow. Then I went to my local shop and tested the Tensei CK Pro Orange and the Hrzdus Black.  Not even close for me. There is an upcharge for the Tensei, but I have no idea what it is.

 

I think that Srixon has a winner with this line this year.  I'm gonna try to get out on the course today and play a few...

19?!?!?  Don't you only have 13 clubs?  Do you just keep cycling through?

So you are saying you'll have a G400 in the classifieds soon?

Hugo's Range Challenge works like this...

A second range challenge was created by a dear friend of mine (and serious player) Mr. Hugo Dobson. Again, you’re allowed 40 golf balls to see if you can complete this challenge.

Set up: Pick a 15 yard wide target on your golf range. Make it 10 yards wide if you’re feeling cocky and 5 yards wide if you like feeling pain.

Begin with the shortest club in your bag (a wedge of some sort) and aim to land the ball within your target area. Once you achieved this, move onto your next shortest club (let’s say a PW). Follow this process until you finish the game with your driver.

14 clubs means 14 stages to complete. Mark how far you can get, by how many clubs you can get through with your 40 balls.

It too me 19 shots to clear 13 clubs at a 10 yard target.  (I am not that good).  

I think that I will be keeping the G400 for now.  It is never a bad idea to have a backup or 7.

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.
