I told myself I would never buy one of these adjustable drivers. Why? It makes no sense to screw around with driver adjustments when you don't have a repeatable swing. Which I don't. But this is the Callaway® Big Bertha® Alpha driver with a Hyper Speed Face™ with a high strength, forged composite crown, deeper Center of Gravity, Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki Zeta Graphite Shaft and New Decade 55g Grip.
And Dick's Sporting Goods had this original $400 driver on a Cyber Monday sale for 130 bucks.
And given this is a Callaway Big Bertha, the most powerful driver in the world and would blow my golf ball clean away, I had to ask myself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do I, punk?
There are a lot of adjustments for this driver.
There is a lot to learn about this driver. I really don't have time for this. Anyway, I was wondering whether I should practice swinging it before trying it out at the course. The decision was made for me when Brad called to include me in a tee-time at Harding with Larry and Tony.
Fun day, great course, good group, my usual bad golf. Still working on producing decent animated gifs from the Samsung utilizing burst mode. It's getting there. A selection of shots from the day in no particular order...
