Hmmmmmm. somewhat frustrated and also not caring, while on the course and heck with nothing to lose.. Started swinging that sucka as fast on the downswing as I could, although not so crazy hard that I lose balance or look ridiculous...

dam ball went straight. sometimes even left. sheesh. well guess I will have to try that all the time..
anyone else ever have this happen ?

what's not to like about that anyhow haha

As a side note, just found a good instructor, one lesson so far that I felt really good about. so will bring this subject up next time.

Well not sure about this ..

TM R9 for pretty cheap today.

it’s the first driver I have bought that goes left a lot !!! Haha
So I’m going to play a round with it tomorrow

over time I have noticed a lot of players at all skill or lack of skill, hit TM drivers in the fairway.
this is my first TM.

Never had a Taylor Made driver I got along with for any time at all. Well, except for the original Pittsburgh Persimmon. When Gary Adams started Taylor Made and brought out the metal driver, he met lots of resistance... until people began playing them. Took quite a while for the persimmon fans to think something made of steel could be called a '"wood".

I’ve tried many drivers, not as many as WBl but close. I always come back to my M2. Gonna give a Cally Epic flash something or other a go this weekend and see how it does. I added a little lift and went 10.5 so we’ll see. The TM is on standby though, never getting rid of it.

Today was first full 18 with the R9 three speed or what ever it’s called..

pretty good overall for this rookie. Very few slices.. like 3, and overall more dang nice ones including a few that rolled to about 250. Maybe it’s the shaft, but I’m so damn suprised... and happy. First ever driver that I’m not doing crap to keep from slicing.
Ball position is normal, grip a little strong. That’s it.

Will eventually play with settings, but not for a while. And it’s a 9.5 which I’m getting good but not Too much air.
I used to be a TM club of the week hater... lol. Not anymore.
Of course I still posted a sucky round today... haha. Crappy greens and my irons went to hell for 4 holes straight...

Really liking this old Tm R9 driver. Hitting a lot of fairways and getting great distance for being 64 yrs old! Lol
Couple today that went 250 adding in the roll.
Hot dang, I want to get an insurance policy in this club!
