Yeah doing a quick google search I can't seem to find a solid answer. Did a quick search on DJ. His average swing speed is 121, average ball speed 181. Spieth is 111 and 166.
Looks like that 60-62 number is bogus, maybe only for the top drivers of the ball.
Simply put, Smash Factor is Ball Speed divided by Clubhead speed. Due to manufacturing restrictions, it is difficult to get a smash of over 1.50 on a driver shot, these shots usually come from the toe area of the sweet spot (I can confirm this, speaking from experience). Spieth & Johnson's numbers w/ the driver divide out to a near 1.50 smash each
Flightscope Mevo coming out in March, but there's hardly any information available? No real specs, no videos, no units shipped to youtubers for reviews, nothing you'd expect from a product shipping shortly.
Fitted AP1's came in today. Of course we get rocked by a hail blizzard so I can't break them in just yet. My roommate hooked me up with an Oban Kiyoshi shaft so I got that regripped when I picked up my clubs and popped it in my M2. Color combo is sexy.
For whatever reason I like black wedges so I'm deciding between Mizuno TP5 or Titlest Vokey. Still have no idea with 3 wood and rescue, need to go smack a few around.
That's a great deal. I picked up the Sun Mountain 3.5LS stand bag to replace my ~ 10 year old Titleist bag that doesn't stand or repel water anymore, and it's awesome. Light, same storage space, looks good.
Got picked over at GolfWRX to try out the new TaylorMade TP5X ball. A dozen of them arrived via FedEx today. Early reviews look good.
Also received the bad news that my Epic SZ will not make it to my bag before I leave for Pebble/Bandon. If it shows when I am gone it's getting sent overnight to me wherever I am.
As an alternative I found the exact shaft I picked on WRX and bought it. Then get the text saying his kid used it as a sword and broke it. Search again and find another one. Gonna get a Titleist adapter on it to use for the trip.
Also bought some "Body Glide" for the Bandon trip. If you don't know what that is Google it.
Im really considering pulling the trigger on the skytrak. Anyone want to talk me out of it? Also looking at getting a projector and screen but the one thats on their website is super expensive. Im sure i could find another option elsewhere that is much cheaper right?
I almost would like a combo set. Say have the 4-7 irons all play the same length and then the 8-LW all be the normal length.
Ever since I heard of this dechambeau guy I thought the idea was okay but it would work way better with at least 2 lengths of irons. It just makes no sense to me to have a 3 or 4 iron the same length as a wedge.
Even if Kirkland is 90% as good, that is a no brainer for 95% of golfers. It seems like they are very close. As in Sprint vs. Verizon.
Good game Titleist. No wonder you are suing. Have to somehow squash this, no matter what it takes. As articles say, that is a dangerous strategy and is drawing more attention to Costco.
Golf balls are my biggest golf related cost after membership dues, and I never even pay full retail. Would love to see Costco win this suit. From the sounds of it, Titleist doesn't have much and this suit is a bit of a hail Mary.
