Easy Million: Jeff Gains 59 Yards with 3 SUPER LS Hybrids
As part of his tune up before the SONY Open, Jeff went through “Easy Million” – the new and fun promotion behind the SUPER family of clubs.
By testing his old hybrid with a new SUPER LS hybrid, along with his 2-iron vs. a new SUPER LS 2-iron hybrid, and even his old 3-wood vs. a 15-degree SUPER LS hybrid … Jeff was able to gain 59 total yards (a great and sacred number for any golfer, so he was thrilled)
Watch the video below to see Jeff go through “Easy Million” and react to the incredible, distance-driven performance of the SUPER LS hybrids.

HONOLULU – In team sports, recently signed free agents often feel a little extra motivation to prove their worth to a new club. Jeff Overton maintains that wasn’t part of his inspiration entering this season.
But it certainly didn’t hurt with a season-opening 5-under 65 to kick off the Sony Open.
“At the end of the day, it’s just a better fit,” he said of moving to a TaylorMade driver and Adams clubs in the offseason. “I felt horrible even switching. But at the same time, I’m trying to go with the small little things. It’s just details, small details, I’m trying to get better at.”
