OK kids, here are my pictures from Day 1. As you can see, the paint was still wet on the walls and all rooms weren't even set up.

So, who is who in these pictures? It's good to have a face to go with a name. Unless, of course, people want to remain anonymous.

It's crazy, but the short answer is these shafts are already irrelevant after 8 minutes with Hank.  He told me my swing was smooth but WAY too slow.  So I did.  I bombed these.  2 club lengths longer and that's not a joke.  However the graphite really dampens feel, which I think is pretty sweet in the R11.  So, I'm going back to the KBS 90, but 2* flat, which I was fitted into.

I could play these though, but they'll go left too much when I finish what Hank taught me.

The back story is, I already play the 90s, so I figured what the heck.  I hit them well on Day 1.  I was PMing back and forth with someone in the R11 review thread.  I joked that if I kept with them that I'll need to change my name to Broken HipCheck or HipReplacementCheck. :D  I was fitted into 2* flat, which is key.  It really straighten out my ball flight.

These are two really unique experiences.  Day 1 and Day 2 maybe could have been flip-flopped, but truth is, you need to work on what you're taught. So in a month, I could be back to standard lie. Going back to stiff 90s.  Hey, I tried it at least.

Thats a key point. You can't help but feel comfortable around the guy. He's very casual, just like the TaylorMade guys. As amazing as it is, the experience can be unnerving. You're under pressure to perform. Cameras are everywhere and everyone is watching.

Hank was a great pickup for TM.  Did he say why he left Nike to come to TM by chance?  Was it because of the TW breakup?

Perfect timing.  Hank fires TW and then signs with TM.

Haney seems like he would be such a cool guy to work with. Always helpful and laid back on twitter, can't imagine him being much different in real life than how he is on the show.

Super pics Hip, really.  Especially like the Haney instruction pics, you can see him instructing you guys to "lay it flat on top" almost exactly the same way he did with Barkley and Romano.  Keep the pics and narratives coming boys!  :good:
