Talking

Good thread ! I started playing June 1st, have played nearly nearly ever Saturday since then, all 18-hole courses, plus 9-holes on Wednesday at a local course 3 minutes from my house. I hired a PGA rated golf swing coach, and have 4+ lessons done with pre-paid 4 more.

I have improved quite a bit, recent best of best was a 90 - and I know that's not great, but going from knowing nothing before June 1st to that - I felt okay about it.

Serious question - I bought a nice set of irons and drivers from a local golf pro who had many old extra sets he wanted to sell. They are 'ok' - but what I need advice on is - what are the top two best drivers that you guys recommend ?

Oh, and I keep buying so many random golf accessories too - from towels, boxes of balls, gloves, rangefinders, etc. - it's fun though

Cheers,
Merlin

They will humble you. Those greens are divided into 4 quadrants, and if you don't hit into the correct one you are looking at a very difficult 2-putt. On every hole. Bayo is easier in that regard, but it has it's share of other challenges; bunkers, trees, elevation changes, etc.

Both are fantastic courses and I'm lucky to live < 1 hour from them and the other Monterey Peninsula courses. Old Del Monte, Pacific Grove, Poppy Hills, all are worth the trip.

Everyone has their brand bias when it comes to clubs, especially drivers.
You really canít go wrong with any of the top brands flagship drivers - Iíd recommend hitting all of them and see which one Ďfeels rightí for you.

Iím partial to TaylorMade Drivers, had one in the bag for over 30 years. Currently have a M1, but almost pulled the trigger on a SIM Max2 this summer, but after hitting it on the course, didnít really see any Ďimprovementí over the M1.

Iíve hit Callaway, Ping, Titleist, Cobra, Cleveland over the years, and owned Ping and Titleist a couple times, but keep coming back to TaylorMade.

Another TaylorMade fan here...though I just replaced my well-loved R7 quad with a PXG 0811 X Prototype this year. Picked up damn near 40 yards on average with my drives. I hit the newer TaylorMades too but liked the PXG just a tiny bit better and hit it a tiny bit further so that's what I went with.
