What I found was that it wasn’t just the head that weighs more – the entire Momentus driver has a mass of – are you ready for this? – 500 grams, which is actually more than one pound of weight!
I had just gone out to get some exercise and make some full swings, but I predicted late last winter that I’d be increasing my numbers with the tighter pivot that I had worked on.
I don’t get why GolfDigest is so breathless about Dustin Johnson’s driver numbers when they are largely the same as they were over a year and a half ago.
If you were around at the beginnning of 2015, you’ll remember that TaylorMade had a commercial out showing that Dustin was getting really good numbers with his Aero Burner driver, and let’s compare the numbers on two drives from then, and now.
I must confess, I’ll never lose that drive for the maximum distance and power, because I’ve always been a power swinger.
What I set out to figure out, around ten years ago, was how to make that power more consistent and repeatable, so that I could keep the ball in play and, even better, out of trouble with missed shots.

It was raining today, and Steve’s question about my ball flight and loft took me to Golf Town, where I was looking to get a swing speed radar, that device that can measure club head speed and ball speed.
Unfortunately, they didn’t have this product (though I know they did last year), so I wandered over to the clubs section to check out the Drivers.
