THE DRIVER GUY

“That another demo in your bag?”

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Contents 2/ 15 - By Tom Stick­ney

I ’m all for you bust­ing out a new driver, but be smart about it. Don’t grab one off the rack ev­ery time you walk by the shop. Or dump ev­ery demo after a few flares into the woods. Maybe you just need a les­son – or a lo­bot­omy. If you’re think­ing of re­plac­ing your driver, prom­ise me two things: First, you’ll get fit by a pro, and sec­ond, you’ll give the new club a fair trial. I bet there’s a club­fit­ter or a dis­count re­tailer near you. If not, chat to the equip­ment brand agents.

On the sec­ond point, put in some time with your new toy. Give it a month, at least. If you still think you need an adjustment, head back to your fit­ter. That’s why you go to a pro in the first place: You’re not stuck once you rip off all the stick­ers.
