Question Driver Shaving

Any of you heard of a company Worlds hottest drivers? one of the services is driver shaving. Suppose to add 20+ yards for $119.00, never heard of this, got to be a gimmick.

nah, I don't trim it, I just braid it so the wind doesn't whip it around distracting me on the tee box.

I've never heard of them. The way I look at things like this is, if the pros aren't using it to such an extent that it's being advertised during PGA events and in the major golf magazines, it's something struggling at best or a scam at worst.

Yeah! I've heard of them. Golf equipment companies increase distance by increasing the Coefficient Of Restitution which is the amount of spring in the driver face by controlling the thickness. USGA & the R&A limits the COR. This company shaves the face to increase COR but by doing so will make the driver non-conforming.

Or in less polite terms, shaving the driver and using it in competition makes you a cheater.

Give the man a seegar. When a club is tested by the USGA and found to be conforming, it is only legal as it is manufactured. Start changing the specs and it most likely becomes nonconforming. It is certainly not allowed for competition or handicap because it is no longer on the conforming club list, since it is no longer the same club which was tested and approved.

Huh??? That's just a figure of speech, and most consider it a compliment. I was simply agreeing with you. Would you rather that I give you a gold star? What is your problem?
