Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney    RT @tufty1978: is the R11 going to make a big difference to 5 handicap player? Probably will it is s great club

@HankDHaney    RT @RONDALCanada: @HankDHaney are adjustable drivers really THAT good? Yes they are

@HankDHaney    RT is "getting fitted" for a shaft as crucial for a mid-high hdcp? Or r ya pretty safe with a stock? If u want to maximize distance.

@HankDHaney    RT @newsandreports: @HankDHaney which irons do you carry? Nike cavity back

@HankDHaney    RT @mabammsia: Adams all-hybrid set? Overkill? For 10hcp who doesn't shape shots much. First iron should be 5 iron for a 10 handicap

@HankDHaney    RT @crob205: have a love affair with the original r 90 sand wedge they're getting hard to find. Plenty of wedges just as good, get over it

@HankDHaney   RT @ndsailor43: @HankDHaney Hank on driver glove or no glove. Glove for sure

@HankDHaney   RT @Weston33: @HankDHaney I think hybrids are a easy way out! Then bring out the 1 iron and really torture yourself

@HankDHaney   RT @selectaPrime: @HankDHaney hybrid or rescue? Same thing

MARCH 17
Hank Haney, PGA

@HankDHaney   Anyone that doesn't have at least 2 hybrids in their bag must think the game of golf is too easy
