George PazinThis past season I finally talked 82 year old Don Humeston into trying a sleeve of Precept "Laddies". I told him they'd be free if he didn't see a difference in his distance. He paid for them at the end of nine holes.Equipment is an area where certain "improvements" will always mean different things for different players. Good quality equipment is not expensive, especially when measured against prior years and adjusted for inflation. You can buy an eighteen pack of balls of superior quality for $1.00 @ ball and a set of Top-Flite irons, 3-PW, for $310.00. In 1976 dollars that's $.33 1/3 and $100.00 respectively. Cavity backs, metalwoods, graphite shafts and soft cover hi traj balls all have significant benefits for the average player. High COR, maximum launch angle, frequency matched shafts and hard cover lo traj balls are significant for a select few. Performance tweaking is only meaningful for someone at or near the top of their sport.
