When I went back it was a total nightmare as I shot a 95 my first time out and my Nephew broke my Driver in freaking half which added to the misery. I loved that driver it was custom madee for be by a guy who did golf smithing on the side... He (my Nephew) asked to take a few swings while we were warming up before our tee time and as I left the clubhouse I saw him standing there with my club in what looked to be a L shape and a stupid look on his face. Took me so long and so much practice to get to the level I was at and it all went in the toilet. Then I changed jobs was working a lot of weekends and I could not Imagine what I would shoot now about 8 years later and a bit of a belly to boot which no doubt will have an effect on my swing LOL. What shaved a bunch of strokes off my game ?was in fact that driver (the ******* L shaped one) I took a little off my swing was not trying to kill the ball and was hitting the fairway at a much better rate. That made the difference because My mid to short game was pretty good. You will do it when you least expect it then the Golfing gods will strike you Down ...bastards < this was in reference to me ... I hope you get it done and continue to improve I'm consistently in the mid to low 80's right now with the outlier stinker where I'm 90+/- a few range. They still happen, golf is a bitch like that. That said, those are rare now because I actually stopped hitting my driver. I can bomb my driver but when I miss, I miss big and I have days where I just cant hit it. So after a year of contemplation and 1 really really bad round with my driver, I bought this infomercial club I saw on the golf channel called the Gx7. 1$ for a 30 day trial, if you like it, keep it and pay full price or send it back. I ******* love it. I'm hitting fairways on the regular now. Ironically it's pitched as "swing like your 7, hit it like your driver" and my 7 is inconsistent but for some reason this club just fits my swing perfectly and I hit it straight damn near every time. It's a 14 degree, shaped like a hybrid. I probably lose 10-15 yards off a good driver but I'm hitting, no joke, like 75% of fairways with this club now. Even when my swing feels terrible, it seems to be a good shot. lol Shaved 6-8 strokes off my game, no joke. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
