JULY 3
Bryan Huus, PGA

@bryanhuuspga    Seems every club maker is making drivers either open or closed faced, not square. Honestly I am not sure how I feel about that.

@TitleistEurope   "@brad13456: the new 712 irons must be amazing! Just look at nick watney's performance at at&t!!! Can't wait till They come out" Good spot!

Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney   No stick w what u have RT @migz7816: @HankDHaney as a beginner i currently have 52* and 56* wedge, should i also add 60*?

@HankDHaney   When buying woods u have to test them out and trajectory of the ball flight is most important, it is a combination of shaft, loft and design

@HankDHaney   Same stiffness but slightly heavier RT @JimboJett:do you think that driver shafts, fairway woods and rescue's should be the same

@HankDHaney   Yes, too big a gap there RT @HB3azer:I carry a 52 and 60, should I throw in a 56 and take out my 3 iron? I have a hybrid I hit 220

@HankDHaney   9.0-9.5 X shaft RT @brianjonesgolf: @HankDHaney 118 clubhead speed, 2 handicap. What shaft/loft in my driver? 10.5/stiff seems to balloon.

@HankDHaney   Half the ball above the club RT @dansankar: @HankDHaney Driver tee height? I hear newer drivers don't need to be teed too high

@HankDHaney   Steel RT @ericwinkel: @HankDHaney good swing speed. Graphite or iron shafts?

@HankDHaney   Stiff RT @madsonmark: @HankDHaney 96mph club head speed what type shaft do you recommend?

JULY 2
Kristy McPherson

@KRISTY2208   I got to hit Mr. Ben Hogan's 7 iron out of his actual set of clubs today! Most pure 5 shots I've hit n 5 yrs! I think he was on to something
