    Sneds won't be playing TM, come on now



    Maybe he just signed the bag and hat deals out like Kuch with RBC.

    ^^ Seems odd but having gotten some insight into Team Molinari's approach and analytics via Denis Pugh on Sky Sports I'm 100% convinced its all planned to the finest detail.




    Now there is a good change for 2019, no more Denis Pugh on Sky Sports!




    Is that hope on your part or is he moving away from the TV work? Not my favourite but I found him OK.




    He tweeted recently that he is finished as a regular studio guest. His daughter is getting married this year, and he wants to spend more time with his wife as she recovers from illness.




    Cool I used to look at this Twitter feed but in recent times it got overloaded with non-golf stuff so started to avoid it.



    Curious to see who takes over from David Livingstone, I imagine it will be Nick Dougherty as he has transitioned into broadcasting very well.

    I like Dennis on the TV, not everyone's cup of tea but he knows what he is talking about regarding the golf swing. On Twitter he comes across as a grumpy old man, with an unhealthy obsession with Brexit (he is a stauch Remainer).



    Interesting the Molinari is moving to Callaway, a company that Dennis Pugh has been affiliated to for years. I wonder how much influence he had in that decision.

    Couldn't stand him. Smug, full of his own self importance with a holier than thou attitude. It was always telling that whenever it came to big tournaments that Sky ditched him.

    How many of you that say amateurs don't buy based on what pros play bought a $300+ Scotty Cameron putter because Tiger made everything under the sun that he needed to? But never picked up a Tour Edge or the new Ben Hogan line because nobody on tour plays them?

    Tour use is validation of the 'quality' of manufacture, whether subliminal or pure endorsement.




    Own 1 Scotty, a Circa 62 that I bought used because I had it confused with a Circle T.

    Currently own a Tour Edge driver and 3 wood.

    First hybrid I ever bought was a Hogan.




    I think (and hope) this line was meant to be the comedy gold that it is:



    "Own 1 Scotty, a Circa 62 that I bought used because I had it confused with a Circle T."



    Because this made me laugh, hard. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.




    Naw, I'm embarrassed to admit I'm not that brilliant. I really thought I had found a steal in a little local golf shop. This was before I joined golfwrx so I'm a little more "educated" now when it comes to equipment, lol.




    Still makes me smile though. But now, I feel for you. Thank gawd for GolfWRX.

    I never understood the Betti love, for me they have been the golf equivalent of shopping at Total Wine. You sell yourself on that $300 scotch because of the description only to find out it tastes like $20 swill. Their putters feel like a cold dead corpse. They look amazing though...

    Still not signed up to it. Discussions seemingly ongoing. Sky want to have the rights exclusively and no coverage on the BBC at all. Augusta are not so keen for that so everything was at an impasse. Hopefully they get it sorted. The quality of the coverage that Sky dedicated to The Masters was exceptional and I would rather a one minute advert break every 20 minutes than having to watch Ken Brown running around with a rubber duck.

    There will be fewer big contracts moving forward and we are in the middle of all of the big ones outside of Rose.

    Sky Sports are infinitely better than BBC at sports broadcasting but with regards to the Masters I don't care as long as I can see it.

    Molinari? Isn't he a brand ambassador for Bettinardi?




    He signed with them this past season.



    Don't know how long contract is: https://www.pgatour....utter-deal.html




    Guess the Betti deal is done now and he's full bag Callaway and Odyssey Toulon. Golf ball is the wild card.




    I see the Toulon has the Stroke lab shaft as well
