    Tony hits it kinda far . . . I wonder if his driver shaft tipping is measured in inches or in feet.

    Nice...I have the same irons but mine don't go as far as Tony's!



    Best of luck to the kid this year in the big show!

    Is the "3 iron shaft" 4 iron bent strong at all? I wonder if a 1/2" difference in length equates to 10 or 15 yards more.



    Nevertheless, I like his setup.

    Would love to see him play in person. Seems like a beast averaging 310 off the tee.

    Tony is a great kid and really well liked by the other players, especially the veterans.

    He has huge hands and his grips are built up like baseball bats!

    I caddied for him and his brother here in Vegas back in 2007. On the first tee at Reflection Bay, he asked where the green was. I pointed to it and he hit it exactly where I pointed. His brother hit a flair to the right. He was ten feet short of the green. Unbelievable! He tried to drive number ten but hit the rocks just in front if the green. He was a class act back then and I don't think he was in his 20s yet. I really hope he does well. A kid like him deserves it.

    Kind of funny what certain people do when they get on Tour and sponsored by big OEMs. Most run out and get names stamped on every club, get with Scotty to make ya a $10,000 putter, $4000 worth of shafts, have sparkling new grips and the biggest staff bag available..I'm this type of guy lol. Does all of this then ends up missing every cut!



    Others like Tony don't change a thing. They still beat the **** out of there clubs, don't wash em, a $100 dollar putter with a grip that looks more brown than white, and I bet ya money it's driving him crazy having a staff bag lol. It wouldn't surprise me if he had a ball retriever in it! These guys seem to do better/earlier in there career. I'm sure eventually he will settle in and start living the high life

    3 iron shaft in 4 iron does not = 3 iron length. Might just be soft stepped.

    Why? DI-8X is not soft. I know WRX'ers believe the DI plays soft and spins... but not DI-8X. Sure, the DI-6S might launch and spin a little higher but the 8X is very stiff especially tipped 1-2 inches...

    All i said I thought it was interesting, coming from someone that owns one and has frequency/CPM the shaft I can attest to the stoutness esp tipped 1", HOWEVER, its stoutness with feel that the ad di 8x has.(and my SS is no where near his) A. Scott was playing it - and is in the top 20 in driving on tour, but I would have put finau in DJ, Woodland category, and those guys are into more rebar, but hey, Finau shoots missiles with it........

    As everybody who has met him attests, he's a friendly, courteous, likable fellow with a very good attitude. I've never seen him get mad on the course.



    As for how long he is, well it's just astounding. Most of the time he's trying to dial it back. I followed him around the web.com stop this year and had to wait 10 holes before he even pulled out his driver. On ten, a 600 yard par five, he used driver/7 iron. Driver went 379, not downwind, not downhill. He had only the good weather and the elevation going for him.



    The only person I've seen who is consistently longer is his little brother Gipper. Gipper was 10 to 20 past Tony almost every hole when they played together at the Provo Open a couple of years back.

    I saw him sink one putt yesterday, nothing today. Never fear, they have him on their radar as someone to watch. He'll get his TV time. But he's so tall and skinny with no a** that he'll always have a hard time keeping his shirt tucked in. His short game has gotten much better lately, watch out!

    I remember an interview with Tom Lehman where he talked about his grips and how he played them until the rubber wore down if they felt right.

    All those guys are different-- some guys like that softer feel. One of my guys who's 190+ ball speed played in a PGA Tour event last summer (he's still an am) and hit the 4 longest drives of the week and he likes shafts a little softer in the tip than the ultimate low launch, low spin variety. He can interchange between 8.2TS and 8.3TS as well as DI-8 tipped 1.5"... just depends hows he's feeling.



    I didn't mean for it to sound like you were wrong-- his fairway has 8.3TS so he must like stiffer profile shafts with just a shade softer in the tip.

    Good week for Tony"s PGA tour debut, 21 birdies , which led the field. Just a couple of bad holes , a triple and double, or he would have been right there in contention.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
