Here are a couple of shots of some pictures that were take of me with John Daly and Karrie Webb. Funny, I think I was the only one interested in Karrie. I watch a LOT of LPGA golf. John was just cool. Just a normal guy who happens to play golf and has won two majors. And of course, the last one is a Mickey Mouse cart. Just a quick souvenir stop at Disney.

I don’t know about you, but I’m about tired of winter. So much so, that I’ve been hanging around our local golf store just talking to people and giving them advice on purchases. The biggest thing I see is a lot of misinformation. And I get it. We all have preconceived notions and opinions. But one thing I did do at the request of one of my longtime friends named Jack, was to update him (and us) on the PING G400 driver and the G400Max. He remembered, as many of you might, I waited until the PGA Show to decide which driver to go with. So, I brought my personal Yonex shaft with me and tried both models to see what fit better and gave me consistent results.

The “Max” driver is big and pretty forgiving. Pretty much as PING said it should be. But one thing I learned from Tim, forgiving is relative. Both drivers launched high and were fast off the face. They sounded and felt similar. The difference was simply the mass of the driver head itself. As I learned a long time ago, and mentioned a few months ago, a smaller driver is easier to get around and square up. One thing I didn’t expect was the spin to be considerably higher than the regular version. One thing that I established was that I need a new shaft regardless to knock off at least 400RPM of spin, if not a little more. Though with a lot of hard work and proper body positioning, I believe I can go a bit higher in flex to maximize the energy I’m putting out into my driver.

So what did I decide? The regular version fit me better. So, I’ll get my bag ordered and get myself ready for the season. Getting fit determined what worked better and took out doubt and frankly someone else’s opinion.

Titleist SM7

We’ve been getting a lot of wedge questions in on Facebook and via email. Short game play can make or break your round. I usually recommend a 4-wedge set to fill most of the gaps in the bottom part of the bag. Most of my students will have wedges that stop at 58 or 60 degrees. Some will dabble in the 62 and 64 degrees range. You have to put some serious dedication in wedges like that, and a decent amount of bounce to make them as forgiving as possible for those really delicate shots. But I also know my best friend. He’s going to want to try a high lofted wedge, and I’ll make him one but only if he promises not to give up on it. Plus, he likes to get extra clubs to take to different courses depending on where he plays. "Options" he calls it. And he’s stubborn.

Until now, the challenge presented by Irons with thinner faces in hollow heads has been the compromise
that has to be made. Thinner, faster face, with more vibration. Or a urethane insert that dampens vibration
but slows the face. Not with the Callaway Rogue Irons.


Only to be found in Callaway Rogue Irons. A way of dampening vibration and improving sound along with feel,
leaving the speed of the face preserved. It’s a nanotechnology: billions of elastic-urethane microspheres
allow the face to flex at full speed, at the same time as dampening vibration and improving sound.


Callaway, the number 1 Iron brand in golf, have a full range of models to complement the Rogue family.
Innovation committed to improving your experience on the course. So let’s match the right innovation,
with the perfect fitting, to your golf swing. How much performance could we unlock?


Peter Kostis, in a instruction piece using Paul Casey, highlighted how
much improvement Casey had made by concentrating not on the latest swing gimmicks but,
but on the good old-fashioned setup and fundamentals.

This article shows Casey’s whole swing in pictures, but take special note of his perfect posture at setup. 

Last week we asked you tell us why you think most golfers don’t concentrate on their setup
anywhere near as much as the very best golfers do. This week we’re challenging you to
answer that question for yourself. Is your alignment and posture good enough to give
you a chance of making a good shot? Not sure?
