With me being prone to hitting a push slice (an over the top push slice, not an inside out push slice), I am experimenting putting the adapter on the A3 setting. So far, it seems to help mitigate the chance of a push slice. Of course I can still put a bad swing on the ball and hit a push slice, but helps make it less likely.

Can you explain what an out to in push slice is? Usually a push shot is a push fade and is a right starting ball going further right. My understanding is that if you are out to in you are going to pull the ball and thus it would be har for push anything if you are coming from the outside of the ball.

Here Chris Ryan says that you can't tell the path from the ball flight for a push slice, it can be from any path, with the face extremely open to path

 

Also, i made a picture. Green is target line, black is swing path. If the face is that open to swingpath, its starting right and going even further right. And its going to be a weak glancing blow.

That’s the first time I’ve heard anyone refer to a push coming from an out to in path. It’s alway been referred to as pull slice but because the face is so open it’s a slap across the ball and thus the right to right flight.

So you're saying the Titleist is spanking the Epic Flash SZ in distance?

The distance difference is less so than the forgiveness and playability. So far in my on course data (haven’t been on an LM yet) the TSi and Epic SZ are fairly close in distance with Tiffany beating Eddie by 6-8 yards most times and based on the fitting she’s smacking him pretty hard on ball speed.

But more research will be needed to determine the ultimate distance king/queen

.5 inch shorter than standard. It is certainly helping with my dispersion and I can still get it out there!!

Played in our Turkey Shoot 2-Man  Scramble at the course today 

The driver was very good, hit 9/13 fairways, one hybrid off one tee due to a cross hazard I didn’t want to take on, since my partner was in trouble on his shot. 
 

The 4 misses were all barely missed FW and were kind of strategically playing to that side so the targets were a bit narrower than normal. 
 

Had the Long Drive for Seniors for a while at a modest 227 but it was beat out by a pretty good player.  Surprised that distance took 2nd. 

Still loving the looks of this at setup and the height I’m getting once i adjusted the setting to B3 which is what my fitter told me i could try if i wanted a bit more height on them.  
 

It was a relatively pleasantly cool late fall day, temp around 56 but cloudy.  So the ball probably wasn’t carrying like it would in the summer. But Fortunately no wind, so it was nice. 
 

We finished middle of the pack with a 74, but began the day with a double and bogey on our first two holes.  We then ran off 4 birdies in a row before another double on the shortest par 3 on the course 🙄

So that finished any comeback hopes.  The holes were cut in very tough locations.  They looked deceiving until you putted and saw subtle breaks at each hole.  
 

The Super wanted a legit score to win, and it did at 67.

The Kuro Kage 50g R flex 

That’s similar to my Kuro Kage 55g A. I might have been better off with 50g A to achieve a little more height.
My Tuesday appt maybe canceled due to predicted 32* temps. It’s outside (under tent) but grass Tee area. I don’t believe will drop that low but if it’s open I’m still going.
