    So much natural ability. His golf swing has always looked like about 50% of what he could do. Like Couples....effortless.

    We will always wonder what his true potential was....

    nVentix composite iron shafts simply awesome! Hopefully this helps prove their one flex one weight story.

    He's just waiting for the next "free" hybrid to arrive.

    What I want to know is why these tournaments continue wasting sponsorship spots on someone who is done, and not on more deserving young players. Like what is etched on the bag, his last real triumph was 19 years and countless WDs ago.

    Daly still has a following. I still root for him to turn things around even though chances of that are looking slimmer and slimmer. Tournaments still bring him in because he does still draw a crowd. He is still an "everyman" kind of golfer.

    Finally a touring pro who "Pures" his shafts. And to think I always thought that was snake-oil.

    The design of the Nunchuk is such that adding lead tape to the head is necessary to achieve the desired swing weight. The type / weight of grip and amount of tape used also affect the SW.

    IMO, spining an XI is not necessary , but these players want any and every advantage they can have. I would want the tape in the heel of the head and not so much in the toe, although the tip section of these XI's can easily endure the stress put on the toe at swing speeds of these tour players. His ball flight with these shafts will be more consistent than any he has ever played . I hope he has dealt with his foot problems that stopped him at the Valspar.

    He is now playing with the best shafts ever made , IMO.
