YOU CAN TAKE YOUR 3 IRON AND SHOVE IT… IN THE CLOSET

Too many times when I speak to amateur golfers about what kind of clubs they have in their bag, I find out that they do not have any hybrids.  Why not?!  Hybrids/”rescue clubs” are the biggest technological advancement that has been made in golf club technology in the past 15 years.

Let us first define the purpose of a hybrid.  A hybrid is designed to replace a long (or even mid) iron that you have trouble hitting consistently.  The key word is “consistently”.  If I can hit a 3 iron 200 yards when I get it good, but I only hit it good 3 out of 10 tries, then I don’t need a 3 iron.  I need a hybrid.

Nike Covert Driver – The pictures you haven’t seen!

We finally got our hands on Nike’s new line of clubs for next year…WOW! After 2 initial sessions with them I think they’ve got a hit on their hands. Great feel, even better sound and the ball just goes, even on mishits.  Personally, I managed to pull a small muscle in my back the 2 days ago chasing my 2 year old, so couldn’t come close to finishing my swing and my drives were still getting out to 275 with lots of forgiveness and limited drop off on the many miss-hits! As much as we loved the drivers, fairway woods and hybrids, I think the new irons are going to be the sleeper hit. Maximum forgiveness with a respectably thin top line and limited offset combined with unreal distance are major pluses. The part that might just put them over the top is the feel; they feel much softer and solid than a typical cast cavity back. (more…)

5 Keys to Finding a New Driver

The top 5 things to think about when buying a new driver

  1. Price range – Have an idea of how much money you intend to spend before you enter a golf store, but be open to suggestions. If you find somewhere that will take the time to find what is best for you and not just simply sell you the most expensive club, listen. That extra $50 or $100 might be money well worth it.
  2. Do you like it? – You must be comfortable with the way a club sits at address, the way it feels and the sound it makes. Try to hit everything before buying. We know you may have hit your friends a couple of times, but it’s definitely best to try a couple out head to head.
  3. Length vs. Control – A golfer that hits the ball straight and is looking to get a little more distance may want to buy a driver that is a longer or is designed to maximize distance. Do keep in mind that distance isn’t the only thing to focus on. Most of us would rather be a couple yards back and in the fairway rather than hitting a bomb you can’t find. Someone who hits the ball far and is looking for more control may want to look into a shorter driver for a more accurate tee ball
