‘Best driver for heel strikes?’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the most efficient drivers for those who tend to strike the ball out of the heel. WRXer ‘Ralphyboy84’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“I’m a plus 1 handicapper currently gaming an original epic sub zero in the px 63 gram x flex shaft. Most of my misses (more than I would like recently) come out of the heel. 

I’m planning on getting a new driver this winter, but there is too many to choose from these days so was just wondering if anyone could help me narrow down what ones to try?”

And our members have been putting forward their suggestions in our forum.

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.

  • Smokey227: “That’s my miss. G400 Max is the best I’ve ever had off the heel. Doesn’t feel good and doesn’t go nearly as far, but is playable.”
  • cgasucks: “If you were a 30 handicapper, I’d tell you to get lessons. But since you are better than a scratch player and nut it more than 90% of the time you just have to live with the occasional mishit. The best players in the world have to deal with mishits, and you’re no different.”
  • buckl: “I am a big fan of Ping but go to TXG, and there is a recent video that they put up on the 425. Ian and Matty boy both comment on the stability and mishits still being very playable.”
  • MPAndreassi: “I agree with the Ping statements. They’re the most forgiving across the whole face as anything I’ve tried.”

L.A.B Golf unveils new MEZZ.1 Proto putter

Published

on

L.A.B Golf has soft-launched its new MEZZ.1. Proto, which is currently limited to just 1,000 individually numbered putters.

The new mid-mallet putter is fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) for what L.A.B are calling their “best-feeling putter to date”.

The new addition includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow the company to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.

Golfers can also choose their preferred alignment aid, with blank (no marking), line, and dot all offered with the new MEZZ.1 Proto.

The putter comes equipped with a headcover and is available to purchase now at LabGolf.com for $600.00.
