Just Wondering About That Pink Driver...
I guess it was unavoidable that Ping would offer copies of Bubba Watson’s pink driver for sale, and I’m betting all 5,000 are already spoken for. But what puzzles me is that the driver should have lost the Master’s for him, so what’s the big deal? He hits his tee shot on the second playoff hole so far right, it was a miracle he had any kind of shot at all. He should have found it unplayable, or limited to a lateral pitch out to the fairway at best. He was in D-E-E-P trouble.

But the hero club . . . if there was one . . . was whatever he hit out of that trouble, hooking what was said to be a gap wedge about 40 yards, onto the green, giving him a great birdie look, sure-fire par, and demoralizing his opponent for sure.

My point of all this, as you might expect from “The Wedge Guy”, is that time after time, it’s the wedges that bail out errant drives and iron shots. But they don’t get any respect at all, do they? Rodney Dangerfield could have a heyday with that.
“Hey up there ... driver ... snuggled under your plush, cushy headcover that looks like a tiger or duck or whatever the heck that is. How many times am I going to have to bail you out today? Our poor guy keeps going back to you time after time ... for what??? Blocked into the woods right on 3, snapped into the bunker on 5, so far short on 7 that he couldn’t reach the green with a Howitzer. What are you guys doing?

So here I am, stuck down here rattling around with these oddball irons, just waiting to be called upon again to bail you guys out of trouble. No telling what kind of lie you’re gonna give me next. No, never nicely set on top of a damn tee. How the hell can you hit a bad shot off of a tee? Try it from that gnarly rough behind #3 green sometime. Or these awful bunkers all over the place. The hardpan beside the cart path on #9. You should see the golf course from where I see it. It ain’t pretty.

Nope, you guys don’t give me no respect. No respect at all I tell ya. I rattle around down here, banging around while you ride high all snug and warm in that stupid headcover. What’s up with that?

Hey, I got an idea for you guys. Why don’t you try playing a round of golf without any of us lowly wedges? How do you think you’d score then, huh? Bet it wouldn’t be pretty. But I’ll bet my guy and most any others we wedges belong to would do just fine without a driver at all. Wanna a little wager?
Well, I’m not Rodney D., but I think you get my drift. Want to see which is more important, your driver or your wedges? Try this. Play nine holes this weekend without ever using your driver and see what you shoot. Then try nine more without once using any of your wedges. And just see which nine holes turns out the better score.

It's true. The really sad thing is, I'm already starting to see everyday hackers showing up with pink shafts in their drivers. And I'm not talking about players who really carry the ball 290 yards or more, but hacks who're lucky to see 250 total distance on a good day!

It always amazes me just how many people go out and get what they see the pros using on TV, it really does! And they wonder why they never get any better!

Well this just happened to me today. I had a horrible round shot an 102. Went directly to the range and every shot was straight including the driver! What is was two balls to the right of my stand, and everything came back. I have been hitting the ball great to the point where I am going to get new clubs my distances have improved greatly as well. You ask what id the problem. For me when I get into the round I forget to pay attention to this detail, speed of play is constantly monitored but even though I play with two other players, speed of play an do you in. I will practice more patience in my setup and watch out for ball position and alignment. Better said then done, right! Refer: watch gogoanime online
