The goal of this blog is too keep the information real, no hype, no rambling on about stuff nobody cares about.
Golfers do care about equipment, and with so many choices to make, its tough deciding what to make a major investment in. Clearly the demo days are helpful, but with a lot of things in life, what you like today, you may not like tomorrow.
For me personally the biggest improvement in equipment is the current years TM M3 440 Driver, M3 Fwy 3HL-17 and the TM 790 irons. Of these, the M3 Fwy 3HL-17 is CRAZY GOOD. Yes this M3 Fwy club has 17 degrees of loft, which means I can get it in the air easier, and it goes straighter than my M1. Everyone is looking for better performance from their clubs, and tend to think that less loft will allow you to hit it further. Its the exact opposite!! You want to get the proper launch on all your equipment, and for me, I need higher lofted clubs as I tend to trap the ball and reduce loft.
This new M3 Fwy 3HL-17 was a MAJOR weapon and factor in my first WIN using the clubs in the San Francisco City Championship. I was routinely out driving my opponents with this club, while they were hitting their drivers.
The next biggest improvement is i the TM 790 Irons, OMG they are amazing! When I was tested at the Kingdom in Feb, my 770 six iron was going about 182 while the new 790 averaged 192 with a steeper landing angle, meaning it was coming down softer.
During the SF City Championship, I noticed a huge improvement in my iron shot accuracy and my ability to hit these clubs further when I needed a little extra. I would not call these clubs “overly juiced up” but just perfect for what I was looking for.
And last but not least, the new M3 Driver was definitely an improvement over my old trusty M1. I am able to eliminate the big miss right with this club, and it averaged over 7 yards longer, which is significant to me.
If your looking for more length and consistency, then you’ll need to do more than just get a new set of clubs. You’ll need to get into the gym, and work on golf specific exercises that will increase club head speed, and reduce late round fatigue.
In future posts, I will give you the best possible exercises that I believe will help you achieve this.
SO stay tuned for more on golf fitness, and where my 2018 golf schedule will take me this year, its going to be the best golfing year ever for me, and a special thanks goes to all my friends at TaylorMade for getting me off to a great start.
