My home course is tight, and my swing is not. The G30 was doing it's part, but I was having trouble.
I came up with the idea of a 44in shaft and the G30, with my old Veylix Rome. Sent the head and shaft off to Hoss (as well as my G30 irons to put in PXi's) and I couldn't believe the difference.
For the first time since I got the Razr from Hoss, I have a driver I can control. I hit cuts, I hit draws, I hit a duck hook OB when I tried to KILL it. But it went a Looooong way OB.
First round on my course with new irons, new drivers, and a Veylix in my Hybrid, and I broke 80. Hard to do on a course that has 10 feet of rough then OB on almost every hole. Sometimes it feels like playing golf in a bowling alley.
Once again, a little discussion with Marcus goes a long way.
Sad to say, I do not hit a 9 iron 165+ yards [dammit!]. The hole in one plaque at our club has me with an ace on our 12th. 115 yards with a 9 iron. That was the shot I was describing in the earlier post. Into a headwind. Knocked it down with a low draw that curled into the flag, landed 6" right of the flag, bounced once, spun back and rolled into the cup. In my book the perfect shot, executed just as I drew it up.
You guys with 120-125 mph swing speeds are killin me! I play a few amateur tournaments. A couple years ago I'm paired in the last group on the second and final day with a kid who played for Marquette U and ended up playing mini-tour in Florida. Par 4 18th, 406 dogleg right guarded by trees. I hit a nice fade to the corner in the middle of the fairway and have 150 left. The kid hits a big cut 2 iron over trees and around the corner, ends up next to the 100 yard marker in the middle of the fairway. I just shake my head at that stuff. It's territory I'm not familiar with.
Does my 103-105 get me kicked off BSG?
I'd be on the list too. But Hoss built me several great drivers so I'm still here.
Side note, had a friend that kept telling everyone he was hitting 7 or 8 drives over 300 each round. One day I started charting his drives with my GPS, he broke 250 once.
If you want to change the paint fill, just use acetone, Q-Tips, and a straight pin to get the old paint out, and I use Testor's Model paints to fill it back up. Looks great, you get the colors you want for a few bucks and some elbow grease.
