I played recently with Alfredo Garcia Heredia´s brother, Alejandro, (great bloke, really down to earth and super friendly and chatty) and he had one of his brother´s old drivers in his bag. Titleist head, can´t remember which, and Diamana shaft, 83gramms, x-stiff, with torque near the club head (unusual, I thought it would be nearer the grip...apparently Tiger´s driver is set up the same - ??). Anyway, we played at El Cueto in León (brilliant course, stunning) accompanied by Steve Parlée, a USPGA pro from Atlanta, and I hit two tee shots with the aforementioned club. "Missile" is the word that comes to mind right now. Just awesome feel to the club, a real "cheat stick" as Sam T says. I could just feel the clubhead right through the whole swing, it was almost as if the club played the shots and I was just connected to the grip end! LOL. Needless to say, superb trajectory and ball flight, straight as a ruler, 292 metres on 1st tee. Awesome, just awesome. However, the most interesting thing is it has now made me think really seriously about getting properly custom fitted for some new clubs, because the experience just blew my mind!
