Well, it looks like Rory is trying out the latest TaylorMade Driver, the M1, in Shanghai this week. There were a handful of videos from practice rounds of him hitting it. Some may think this is the M2 but it is actually the M1 driver. Let’s see if he sticks with it. We have heard Rory has picked up 6 mph of ball speed with the new TaylorMade driver.

Should I Use a 60 Degree or 58 Degree Wedge?

So, what is the best wedge to use and when should you use it? Here is a great wedge for those helping to improve their game.

What Type of Greens Does North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh Have?

This is a question I am going to answer time and again as I now know the importance of greens. Every time someone asks me if I want to play at a private country club my first question is always, “what type of greens do they have?” Today, I played the North Ridge Oaks course and can confirm they have bentgrass greens. I was told one of the courses, the Oaks or the Lakes, will go to Champion Bermuda next year but I cannot remember which course is converting.

Playing Golf in Houston, Texas on Champion Bermuda Greens

If you ever travel to Houston, Texas to tee it up on the golf course you are likely going to play a course that has Champion Bermuda greens.

There is a good chance that Hurricane Matthew is going to wash out my golf trip to Myrtle Beach this coming weekend. The area is expecting winds of 105 mph or higher. With this being the case, it made me think about the highest or strongest winds in which you can play golf.

Should I Be Worried If I Am Not Hitting My New Irons Further?

When most amateurs buy new irons they are looking for one thing – distance. Very rarely do you hear an amateur say, “I got my new irons and I hit them about 10% shorter but they are straight as an arrow.” Nope, instead you hear, “I am hitting my 8 iron 15 yards further than I used to hit my old irons.” So, if you have purchased new irons and they aren’t going as far, should you be worried?

Why Do I Skull or Blade All of My Wedges Out of the Bunker?

The dreaded bunker shot. We have all been standing in the fairway thinking, “I would rather be anywhere but in the sand.” We try to aim our shots to avoid the greenside bunkers and where does our ball land? In the bunker. Walking up to the bunker shot, we have a million things running through our head. Open of the blade. Keep your head down. Hit behind the ball. Make it thump. Don’t chunk it. Don’t blade it. Just get it out of the damn bunker!

Well, this one came out of left field. In mid September 2016 it was rumored that Jason Day was going to sign a deal to wear Nike apparel while playing on the PGA Tour. This is a very interesting development as Jason Day has been using Taylormade for much of his professional career.

Why Do I Heel My Driver But Not My 3 or 5 Wood?

Heeling the driver is something I have grown very accustomed to. Unfortunately, there are about two or three rounds a month in which I cannot get the ball in the middle of the club face and I hit a lazy fade that ends up only going about 220 yards. It is painful to play under these conditions as my home golf course can play extremely long. If you are only hitting a driver 220 yards on a 450 yard par 4 life can be extremely difficult. So, why is this the case?
