  • Many are curious about this driver. Even customers that do not typically play COBRA golf clubs want to know more about this driver. A milled face is typically something that you only see on a putter face; this is what Scotty Cameron putters are known for. So what really makes the COBRA F8+ driver special? The CNC milling on the face allows COBRA to make higher quality drivers. CNC milling on the face is a more consistent process than just a blank-bent sheet of metal that you see on most drivers. The milling on a driver face also gives a […]

  • San Diegans support San Diegans, and there is no exception for Phil Mickelson. The 47 year old will be competing in the 117th US Open at Erin Hills [Wisonsin]. We all know that Phil is a legend, but he does not have the career grand slam like other hall of famers. The only major he is missing is the U.S. Open.

  • XXIO is becoming a very popular golf club manufacturer here in America! With great success in Japan, XXIO is in demand for many golfers. Rather than basing product development just off of physics during impact, XXIO has based the XXIO9 driver based off of the golf swing. The XXIO9 driver is larger with more flare in the heel and toe. The XXIO9 driver even comes with a shaft specifically made to optimize the performance of the driver head. The MP900 shaft is constructed of hoop layers. XXIO claims that with this lighter shaft, torque [the twisting of the shaft] is […]

  • New to 2017 is Callaway’s Chrome Soft X ball. Just like every other golf ball brand out there, the X is probably what you think it is meant for… golfers with higher swing speeds such as Phil Mickelson and Wesley Bryan. HOWEVER, do not get wrapped up in the myth that harder balls are meant for faster swing speeds. The Chrome Soft X is very similar to the Chrome Soft, but with more green-side spin, and a more workable, low piercing ball flight.  This can help players that need help hitting that one hop and stop, or hit the ball […]

  • Does your driver fit you? Most golfers have a driver that is too long for them. The top club manufacturers such as, Ping, TaylorMade, Callaway, and Titleist make their drivers about 45.5 inches long, while the average driver length on the PGA Tour is 44.5 inches. One of the common myths revolved around shaft length is that the shorter the shaft, the shorter the ball will travel. Prior to the Tournament of Champions, Titleist ambassador Jimmy Walker put a shorter and heavier shaft into his 917 head. This lead him to hit 70% of fairways; that is 20% more than […]

A satisfying feeling at impact with the most amount of feedback given from any Callaway driver i personally have hit since the old Callaway Bertha X. All in all the XR16 […]
