    now that is funny stuff right there,

    seniors and a long club.............when you can't even see the ball if it is that far away from you,

    how do you guys even find a ball? you just stumble into one and hit that one no matter who may have hit it?
    or maybe they have senior courses where they just line the fairways and roughs with balls so you guys can walk up to about where you think you hit it and just pick one and swing away again?

    Yea, its funny.... BUT with the game losing a million players a year the manufacturers & fitters are doing anything to retain players.

    The olde persimmon drivers were about 42" long, today OEM drivers are 45.5" - 46" long. All to generate additional distance... 1" equals about 10 yrds distance.... now getting a full turn and achieving square @ impact with a 46+" club is a whole other story... The OEM answer is to build the club with a 2+° closed club face... I say good luck with that logic! LOL

    I would choose accuracy over the distance by a long margin,
