    I’m not really looking for a driver but have a good friend who I know would love this club. He is currently playing an old Mizuno MP 001. He has a Taylormade super quad but it has a crack in it. The shaft of the mizuno is regular flex and he doesn’t hit it well. He doesn’t have the best job and I know it would mean a lot to him. I’m guessing you’ve seen 12.

    I've been thinking about trying a lower degree driver and mine isn't adjustable. Plus, I've heard awesome things about this driver!! I'm going to guess 7 bears. Thanks!

    No entry here but awesome gesture!!

    I’ve seen 3 bears in upstate NY as a kid driving to a basketball game. Middle of winter, deep snow, at night and a big bear and two cubs were on the side of the road. They must have come out of their hibernation for some reason. Pretty awesome to see. Glad I didn’t hit them. I know someone else didn’t because I didn’t see them on the way back.

    I would like it because my current driver is a 10 year old Burner. I would like to use something made this decade even if the decade is about to end.

    Bonus: 18 Grizzlies.

    I've seen others with the XR16 and they seem to bomb it off the tee with nice acoustics. I wouldn't mind giving it try if I get a chance.

    Not an entry, but great contest! I loved the feeling and sound of the XR16 (as hackernation noted) and it was a nice upgrade from the BBA for me.

    Happy early anniversary to you and Mrs. Cowdog!

    Edit: That's a sweet shaft so I'm going to say 12 grizzlies (and you won 2 wrestling matches with them!) and I'll send one of mine out to somebody.

    Well I would love to get this driver for my dad who is using a 10 year old ping. Which I bought him like 8 years ago...

    I also think you have seen 17 grizzlies in the wild.

    Thanks for the cool contest.

    Great contest! This would be cool to pass along to a buddy who just graduated college. He has the old Callaway Big Bertha original and can't hit it to save his life. He's hit my G400 a few times and loved it. Newer driver would be great for him.

    I'll go with 19 grizzlies too!

    Nice move on the giveaway. I don't have a need for it but would donate it to the gentleman is Louisiana that is starting a youth golf program if I were to win.

    As for the shaft that my son would salivate for, let's go with zero grizzlies seen in the wild. Trick question that I think I'm the first to figure out:) Or maybe it's not but zero is my answer.

    Thanks for the giveaway. I could use the new X16 driver to replace my ancient driver. 15 grizzlies?
