I just assumed he was talking about one of these....

So, if they call wrenches spanners, what do they call spanner wrenches? 🤔

I'm also waiting for the perfect opportunity to get my ultimate geek on and babble like Bryson. My goal is for it to actually be legitimate instead of his pseudo-intellectual BS.

I laughed a little too hard at your post.

Walked 9 holes in 1 hour and 15 minutes before work this morning.  Played terribly.  Probably should avoid fast rounds if I want to keep my stats nice and high for the challenge.

Played a quick 9 after work and played from the white tees to give myself a chance. Did really well. I would've done so much better if I could get off the tee. Here's the first hole with a 6 iron. Shot a 46 overall

Did you measure Tee Resistance? If not this might explain your lack of ability to get off the tee. I think they are measured in cubits.

I've only managed to play 13 so far this week (due to lack of daylight) but should get two rounds in on the weekend.  Still have the driver set up for lower spin and it's working really well. Why didn't I try that before the challenge started 🤪😁😎

I always use the same tees. Even with my old driver which I had no problems with. Any other ideas Bryson?

Well with the precision milled face (I know using precision with your swing is an oxymoron) it might be time to look at something different. Aerodynamics change when different composites are used, I know I am the science guy 🤣.

Hmm so the science guy is saying that CNC milling makes it less forgiving or changes the aerodynamics so much that it alters my swing plane or face angle at impact... Hmmm

Seriously though I did hit 3 fairways. I moved the weight back into low to match my old driver setup and moved the ball back a little in my stance. In getting a lower ball flight now and less pulls. So that's a start. 

After my horrible 6 holes Sunday I spent about an hour and a half at the range. I felt like then that I had the irons dialed in a bit and it does seem that way. I had a few errant shots but most of my approaches were pretty solid. Here's hole 9 from 145 out. It wasn't a GIR though because I had a penalty off the tee...MVIMG_20190626_172139.thumb.jpg.ea562a3a2bb831398b2d16a44def162f.jpg

Last thing I swear. I also hit my longest drive to date with the F9 today. I just noticed as I was scrolling through the stats. 279 right down the pipe.

Well, if one properly uses a barometer in conjunction with a wind sock to triangulate the exact time and location of a sudden jet stream, longer than average drives can be possible at a rate of 1 extra long drive per 5 OOB driver tee shots.

Been silent for a few days, but tomorrow I’m taking off work at dinner to get 18 in before my tournament this weekend. I’ll see if someone will video my swing so I can post that with my iron review. GIR is not my specialty so I’m glad it’s tournament time, maybe that’ll make me focus more. I’ll also take pics of the leaderboard Saturday and Sunday so you all see where I place.

My ball flight is lower with the F9 driver, yes. I did switch to a 9º head and a shaft that helps produce a lower ball flight.

My previous drivers produced a very high, almost ballooning ball flight, so I really enjoy the way the ball penetrates through the air rather, than floating.

Good luck in the tourney!  I hope you miss every green in regulation but constantly chip in for birdie and run away with the title.

Very similiar ball flight between my old driver and the F9.   Both 10.5 loft and have a medium trajectory.
