    Well... I finally got on the course for opening day on May 1. Quite unbelievable - on the third hole we were tossing snow balls at each other, and by the time we were done it was a gorgeous 27 degree summer day. Still saw a bit of snow in places around the 17th tee blocks, but I have no doubt it is all gone now ! The game was a bit of a struggle as each of us tried to separate our winter fantasies on how far the ball will go as compared to reality. I guess Chris was right when he fitted me for my new 917 Driver at the National Fitting Centre... Even with the best technology I am not likely going to hit it 300 yds. I certainly improved over last year, but the 320 carry is simply not in the books for me :). The new AP3's did what they were supposed to do. Flew high and carried to their distance. Now I just need to work on getting back to a consistent swing. It is great to be back chasing those pearls in the grass !!!!!!!!

  2. Darius, Glad to hear it was a good round! As a Canadian myself, I'm sitting in the office waiting for 5 to get here so I can get out for my clubs opening day!
  3. I have 4 rounds in now, as well as a session on the range. With early season conditions, and a ridiculous amount of wind, I am still not completely certain how far they go, but I can say this: ball flight is definitely higher, for someone who usually fades his irons, these are going much straighter, and even with a slight draw. Birdied two of the last 3 holes yesterday with iron shots to within inches on both. It is going to be a great year.
    The only issue I can see myself having is that I have increased by clubhead speed by roughl 2 mph. I currently have a 4hybrid and a 5hybrid. I think I have some overlap on my distances that will need to be resolved.

    Yep, finally got out today (May 04, 2018) and all I can say is "Holy major wind Batman!" Gusts up to 90 k/h

    I knew the first round would be different, but this was ridiculous.
