    Interesting that the Wilson HT (Hi Toe) has the same 18 grooves that the TM's tour heads have as opposed to the 19 grooves that the standard TM Hi Toes have. I wasn't aware of that before.

    Those irons are such sleepers, and the raw finish makes them just a little better (IMO). I can’t keep mine out of my bag, no matter how many shiny and new latest and greatest make their way through the rotation.


    I’d love to see how they’d do in a blind test against more popular irons.

    Bingo. I just got some V6's. Wilson built them incorrectly, but can't wait until they're good to go,

    Didn't think he could find a putter uglier than his beat up Infinite Southside. I was wrong.

    Made me think of awesome 5wood he hit at that British Open when he was paired with Norman. What a great shot! https://www.theopen.com/latest/2019/01/how-padraig-harrington-made-open-history

    That putter looks like the old Northwestern putters you could get at K-Mart or Wally World back in the day.

    Too much gimmick around their driver releases recently. And I really just can’t tell much difference, aesthetically, between WS’s game improvement woods/hybrids and their stuff aimed at better players. Do they even have woods/hybrids aimed at better players? Some of their stuff looks alright, but I’ve never seen a WS wood and thought “****!, that’s sweet!”. It’s a shame, I’m sure their stuff performs well for many types of player (I know a friend and regular playing partner of mine who bought a Cortex and so far loves it, and he is a good player). They just don’t seem interested in getting in the driver arms race, and all that comes with it (advertising, endorsements, etc.).


    One thing I can say, though, is their woods have been coming with high-end shafts as stock. So, at least there is some reason to keep an eye on Wilson for their woods - to watch for when the price drops below the “value” of the shaft.

    "My Golf $py" has an interesting article on the state of W/S with President Tim Clarke. W/S hit rock bottom in 2006, while selling at a loss. They focused early R&D efforts on irons and wedges--and it now shows. Woods shouldn't be too far behind although I really like the FG Tour F5 series

    I Know it's all about sponsors, etc..., but I always find it interesting to see the guys with (in this case) Wilson headcovers with Taylormade Driver and woods.

    Paddy is a freak. He spends all day every day on the range. Like hours on hours with all sort of gimmicks.

    Love the bag but once again the putter is ridiculously and fu-gly .

    Never has their been a more cautionary tale of of it ain't broke don't fix it. Guy won 3 majors and then decided that swing wasn't good enough. Has to be one of the worst decisions in the history of the game.
