What GolfWRXers are saying about accuracy vs distance with the driver

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether accuracy or distance off the tee is more important. WRXer ‘ShortSticks’ poses the scenario:

“Driver A (Accuracy): Hits most fairways and is a very straight hitter just not as long. Usually 10 to 15 yards shorter than Driver B, but not in near as much trouble. Not very workable, but can be coaxed into a slight fade or draw.

Driver B (Distance): Is long but can be wild off the tee. Can hit to places you have never been, but can also put you in some bad spots that make recovery more difficult. Is workable, but at times can get away from you.”

And our members are having their say on which element of the game is more important these days.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • juststeve: “I would say in general, as long as you can hit in play, longer is better. Keeping it in play means no O.B, no water balls, no balls deep in the woods and having an unobstructed next shot from a reasonable lie.”
  • mattavery727: “For me definitely driver A. I have 118 SS, and sure I can try to step on it and carry it over 300, but I also find trouble way too often. If I take a smooth swing and give up 15-20 but still in a fairway I like my chances at hitting the green or being close. My 7 goes 185 so as long as I am 185 in or less I have a pretty short club in my hand.”
  • gambit: “10-15 yards I’ll take driver A for accuracy. 30 yards and I’ll take my chances of going in the rough and bunkers.”
  • Tasals: “For 10 yards? Driver A. IIRC the tour average is ~30 yards for the benefit of being wild compared to be straight. So a gap wadge from 120 in the rough has equivalent distance from hole stats as a fairway shot from 150. Then you start seeing the major benefits when you hit a fairway or get a first cut lie, the proximity to the hole decreases pretty rapidly. The longer players over a season make more birdies than the shorter hitters, they make more bogeys, but the long guys tend to place better, and win more tournaments as well when they can get away with a few bad shots. I just don’t think the 10 yards is enough of an advantage.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about playing with a 5.5-degree driver

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing playing a driver with just 5.5-degrees of loft. Bryson DeChambeau’s use of just 5.5-degrees of loft on his driver has plenty of golf fans speculating on the benefits, and WRXer ‘vater’ asks members how far they could launch the ball with the low lofted driver.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • OsnolaKinnard: “About 50 yards before it hit the ground.”
  • manima1: “If you teed it up high enough to get your AoA way up, you probably could launch it pretty far. Normal tee height – not so much.”
  • adh2k1: “I play a 6.5-degree driver. I currently set it at +1, but that is more of a spin issue than launch. I do not swing my driver very fast, I would guess upper 90’s, but this keeps me out of trouble the most, and I can get pretty good distance out of it. I would say I picked up about 10-15 yards over both of my Sub Zero Callaways. Like everything great, it eventually goes away. I have had this head for about 4 years, but it never stays in the bag for a full year.”
  • golfman1010: “The key with these low loft drivers is to make sure you’re hitting the ball on the upswing. You will notice Bryson DeChambeau uses a low degree of loft but still hits the ball high. To get this result, at address make sure your back shoulder drops a bit to ensure you are swinging up on the ball.”
  • Myherobobhope: “I think my Long Driver is 7 degrees… I can hit up on it and get decent launch… it’s more a struggle to handle the longer shaft (that’s what she said)… I have my 9.5 cobra driver down to 8.5 as I’ve always been high launch and high spin…5.5 is crazy, but you can make it work with the right swing mechanics… doesn’t mean it will be your best results, but you can make it work without swinging 130 mph. Driver really allows you to change your dynamic loft pretty dramatically.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the most underrated well-priced modern putters

In our forums, our members have been having an interesting discussion on modern putters. WRXer ‘Justsomeguy’ asks fellow members for their thoughts on the most underrated and well-priced modern-day putter, and WRXers have been having their say with lots of different flat-sticks receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • hsmahon: “Cleveland Huntington Beach #1 is the best putter for the price. Feels just as good as any Scotty.”
  • scottaz: “Mizuno M.Craft. Looks and feels great and easy to dial in with the weight kit. Three different styles and colors and cost less than most new high-end putters.”
  • James the Hogan fan: “Wilson infinite series is pretty good, Windy City is one of the anser variants. Sleek looking black finish and styling too.”
  • NRJyzer: “Hard to beat the Huntington Beach putters. Plenty of models to suit personal tastes. Quite soft feeling. I have a 1, thinking about checking out the 2 as I’ve been putting better with my Snake Eyes Viper Tour, and it’s the closest thing to an 8802ish stick.”
  • txgolfer45: “Original Ping Anser and Anser2. Picked up a MySpiderX earlier this year for $200 in like-new condition. Money well spent since new is $420.”
