    I've been thinking about getting the Taylormade M1 driver. Demoed it at the golf store and hit 290 straight down the middle about a dozen times.

    I did have to move the weight back all the way to fix my slice.

    I do and I prefer to fix my swing rather than have a club fix it and reinforce something I'm doing wrong.

    I heard those simulators are rigged to make you think the club is helping so you buy it.

    I didn't really hear that. I just made it up. But it's totally believable IMO.

    I believe that. The first couple i hit sliced bad, when the guy moved the weight back the ball went straight every time

    18 typically, bogey golfer. I've got my driving and chipping under control but the putting has been horrible.
