Tim Cusick, PGA
@timcusickgolf   Rule of thumb on 3woods. If your clubhead speed is less than 85 mph carry 5 wood and then a 7 wood. Better chance to get the ball in air.

Graeme McDowell
@Graeme_McDowell   Good days work at Castle Stuart. Tweaking bag set up for next week. 3 hybrid replaced with #Srixon 2 iron. Lower bounce on my #Cleveland 58.

@Graeme_McDowell   RT @AdrianByrne555 novice golfer here, why 2 iron in bag over 3 hybrid >> low ball flight which is better in wind & running on firm fairways

@HankDHaney   More weight on heel promotes a hook RT @ghriaire: @HankDHaney slicing my 3-wood. Should I try lead tape? If so, heel or toe?

@HankDHaney   Ping blades still have forgiveness but test out a few othersRT @barmstrong2185: Play original Ping irons. If I upgrade, would blades be ok?

@HankDHaney   Fitted first RT @westonblake: I'm buying custom irons and taking lessons soon bc I'm 6'3"..should I get fitted first or get lessons first?

@HankDHaney   One more hybrid for the 4 iron RT @DimplieKrisT: @HankDHaney I struggle with my long irons (4-6) should I switch to hybrids?
