 Tried my new Cobra driver out , found all fairways but distance was weak at 9.5 degrees it was 210 at 12.0 degrees ramped up to 235 but early season you get no roll help especially after heavy rain yesterday . It'll improve as the club starts to feel right
interesting. i read an article last year that basically said get the ball in the air and let it do the work. my driver has always been at 10.5 degrees. i should increase the loft and see it it buys me any distance.

SIG:

Yeah at 77 now i decided to go with the 12 degree setting after the first 4 holes . My old Callaway was adjustable 12-14  but 12 was the optimal last season

This new club is 9-12 , i didnt  like 9.5 today as i said no roll . NOW maybe in mid summer when things are firmer ill give 9.5 a shot again butbfor now 12.is the money setting

For yrs i played 10.5

Re: The Golf Thread

We all are better off with more loft.  Read when pros have added loft

I used to go with 9 degrees - now at 10.5

Re: The Golf Thread

I had a “foam in one” today on LP Club Links 9th hole
7 iron from 136 into wind
Clearly hit the foam and diverted the ball a bit
Counts as a 1 but probably won’t make it on the club house wall but I consider it my 2nd ace
Ended up with even par 71 with two 3 putt bogeys.  A couple greens are still way slower than others

I waited almost 50 years for my first hole in one last fall and now another
I really like how I’m hitting the ball.  Looking forward to getting some roll

I say it doesn't count. It's like a "I did it but nobody saw it" hole in one.

Unless you take it out of the cup and have a witness, it ain't a hole in one.

Re: The Golf Thread

I agree that it is less special because of the foam
But I also know this would have went in.  It pinged off the high side of the foam At the slow end of its roll and based on playing that hole 500+ times and the break of the green being pretty strong it was going in
I’m glad this was not my first ace
Still it’s memorable in our current Covid experience

Maybe I'm just upset because I hit one the other day that was tracking right towards a raised cup (cup above the putting surface), but I couldn't make out whether or not it actually hit it.

Since I have never had an actual hole in one, of course I couldn't count it.

Re: The Golf Thread

Where we play the foam is cut a couple inches below the lip of the hole. The ball actually goes in so there's no question as to whether or not the putt was good. Too bad it's not that way for you guys too.
