Things continue to go well on the range. Today I was simply shocked at how long (for me) I was hitting the ball, and at times I just to had to laugh, I couldn’t believe it.
I’ve got two 3 woods and I’ve been trying to decide which to keep in the bag. I though today might be a fun day do that test. I must say I’ve also been tempted by the distance claims from TaylorMade golf for the Rocketballz line. The two 3 woods are an Adams 15 degree superfast from 2 years ago, and a nike VR pro from last year at 13 degrees. The Adams has an X-Stiff shaft, while the Nike has Porject X 6.0.
Amazingly the both had similar launch angles, with the Nike actually launching slightly higher. How was the distance? Normally, the range I go to has a high fence that starts at about the 240 yard line. My typical 3 wood would carry just short of that and hit the fence on one bounce, or maybe reach the start of the fence. Today, I had a number of shots that struck the middle of the fence, normally a place reserved for my driver. I don’t know that I’ve ever experienced 3 woods that solid.
I credit the work I’ve put in this winter on my fundamentals. Namely I’ve been working with the Powerchute to improve my timing, sequencing, and fitness. I can’t say enough about it.
Interestingly I’ve been considering getting fit for new clubs. Not sure I need to do that for my 3 wood. I did manage to find a winner, the Nike VR Pro 13 degree outperformed the Adams and I’m happy to say that it’s going to take its rightful place in my bag. In addition, I was hitting all my irons incredibly solid. It was a phenomenal practice session and I hope things continue well.
