Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney   Just like the manufacturers make them RT @Humphreylol: whats the best driver length for a 6'0 tall person?

@HankDHaney   Drivers can be longer because the ball is teed up and it is better if the swing is shallow coming into the ball, longer club=distance

@HankDHaney   Skycaddie RT @MC_73: @HankDHaney what's best in your opinion for on course measuring, gps or laser rangefinder?

Simon Wilson

Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney    Why redesign a club RT @ONoACop:In your opinion it is not a good idea to have the shaft cut down in the R11?

@HankDHaney    Long RT @masterpole: @HankDHaney want to try new putter. Getting yippy. Should I try fat grip, belly or long?

@HankDHaney    46, 50, 56 RT @Seanmac1068: @HankDHaney 20 handicap what loft wedges would you suggest

@HankDHaney    Hybrids a little longer, woods ok RT @djurica007:I'm 6'3" with +1" irons. Should I play my woods & hybrid w longer shafts and altered lie?

@HankDHaney   Clubface is open, fix that RT @mnasca:Hitting weak fade with new driver. Shaft tip too stiff or too much flex? #golf #happybirthday

@HankDHaney   Yes RT @TJWinSC:Should a 56 traditionally be used between 15-100 yards? If i hit the 56 flush it does seem to be a good club up to 100..

Try this ...
