yeah, i think everyone fights a slice in the beginning.  It took me a while to develop an inside-out swing, and even then, I had to figure out how to get that clubface closed without consciously trying.  Getting the r7 quad, and now the r7 460 with moveable weights definitely helped.  Sometimes, I keep the weights neutral on courses that have some left to right doglegs, so I can shape shots to fade, rather than my typical draw shot.  Just takes time for muscle-memory to take effect.

Just got back from playing 18.  I think I got hungry on the back 9.

NP! however, I am likely sure that without any actual guidance with you at the range, the tips I mentioned is only half(if that)the solution to your problems.

Yeah in golf terms.

But in a fight, I’d pout money on Wie.

She’s so much bigger than Tad.

as far as the gas tank allows me. wink

i’m down the middle with accuracy at 250+.  speaking of which. I had this guy tell me he hits 300 yards. I don’t see the phenomena with this 300 mark that so many novice players are fascinated with. when I started golfing, I was just happy to hit my driver down the fairway instead of slicing.
anyway, so I took him to the range, not only did his swing f-ing remind me of a terrible weekend golfer, the f-ker couldn’t even hit past the 200 mark. the kicker was that he even asked for some tips.

250+ down the middle is really good with a driver.  I can get there with good trajectory, and a right to left draw, but sometimes it’s a high draw that gets me about 15 yards less.  I can pull a left to right fade on demand, but I’ll only use it on left to right doglegs, as it tends to balloon at the end, and drop out of the sky without much roll or bounce.  My girlfriend’s brother, who has about 100lbs on me, can regularly hit 300 with relative accuracy and a 6 iron to 215.  Also, a friend who is about 5’1” and probably 120lbs (think Tad Fujikawa) can also hit as far as the other guy.  Something to be said about good contact and weight shift translating to clubhead speed.

How do you like your Mizuno?  I’ve had a friend that had forged mizuno irons, and he loved them. So if they make the drivers anywhere near as good as the irons, the driver must be nice.  I’ve tried my friends Nike Sasquatch, Sumo squared, Sumo squared 5900 and Taylormade Superquad, and I can hit them all really nice, but I’m in love with my current driver.  Taylormade r7 460 at 9.5deg, with the stock Fujikura regular flex shaft with mid tip.

I just got the golfbuddy gps from a friend that got a big employee discount at best buy.  Hopefully get to try it out tomorrow.  It has thousands of courses pre-loaded, and there are no download fees unlike all my friends’ Skycaddie units.

your gf’s brother must have a swing speed as that of AK. check out at the swing plane and swift, accurate motion of his body mechanics even at that speed. and the kick at the end, not what I would call good etiquette for golf but, gives it that “cool” factor.

as for the mizuno driver, I have yet to demo them . i’m just curious if anyone here knew someone, or themselves, that demoed the mp 600’s.  I was thinking about upgrading my out-of-date driver(s).
btw...you got a good driver and shaft.

now the irons are what i’m most passionate about. since I have no problem with my drive, I just love the challenge and the playability of most blade irons. and yes, the mizuno irons are one of the best irons I have played,well, considering out of the iron sets I have owned. the first forged irons I have played with were the ben hogan apex edge; and before that, I played with the lynx black cats. I now own the mizuno mp 32.. I have a friend who just started and I have suggested the mizuno mx 900 for his first set, and he is getting very consistent shots with them that he thought he was ready for the ben’s or mizuno, that he took my ben hogan’s out on the course and was red-faced that he didn’t realize how forgiven those mx-900’s were.

^ I was JUST pondering about that when I was watching him. Wow, nothing says “SKA-DOUCHE” more than popped collars.

Except for dookie. I know you like to do that, you’re probably the exception. But think of the children.
