  1. It's an interesting point and I can only imagine that they are. That said, I started with persimmon and have watched the evolution like so many have and I'm longer now than I was was in my early 20's, and I can assure you that I'm not a gym rat. The equipment IS responsible for huge gains in distance, anyone that says otherwise is just flat out wrong. I would love to see the COR tests that were done on the Big Bertha, done on the 2022 drivers.
  2. Love that Driver/Shaft combo. I was so close to going that way
  3. Same boat here. 46º, 51º, 56º and 61º all inbound. PW in Chrome, GW and SW in Raw and LW in Copper!
  4. I'm going to bet that it has a lot to do with internal weighting. There may just not be room above the toe weight to get hot melt to the middle of the club? The new T200 is a lot thinner, high in the blade, than the U-series irons, making it feasible to get hot melt anywhere in the U's from the toe, but not so in the T200. Just a guess.
  5. Had the pleasure of being up close to Tiger in 2000. There has never been a better iron strike put on the ball. I've been at Foxwood and watched Moe Norman hit balls, but Tiger did it at speed and that iron swing was mesmerizing. 2000 Tiger, hands down, best swing ever. Coupled with his work ethic, it definitely cost him longevity, but the question isn't about the longest lasting swing.
  6. Gonna second Jeremy or Craig at Modern Golf
  7. Norm Jackson at Cowachin Golf club is a really good instructor and is one of the best human beings I've met. I highly recommend him.
  8. Haven't played there since it was The Elks, but I always really liked that track
  9. The Calgary qualifier for the Am is at Elbow Springs next month and the only practice round I could get booked was for this Wednesday. High of 36º! Thank God we're off early, might have to cart it for this one.
  10. Had a pretty good run last week that included Mt. Kidd and Mickelson National. That was the first time I've pegged it at MN, and maybe it's because I played pretty well, but man...that track is SO good. Instantly one of my fav's! It's incredibly unique, as in you never play the same hole twice. The green complexes were pretty awesome with backboards and slopes to use and places you definitely can't miss it. Lots of room to hit driver and the greens were rolling really well. The only knock I had was the (drivable?) Par-4 7th. All risk, no real reward. When I play it again, it'll be a wedge-wedge, pretty boring hole. Other than that, what a track! Really nice, grass range, super friendly greeting in the pro-shop and the staff/marshals were all very pleasant. We played with a member, so it was $120. I guess Non-member guest rate is in that $175 range, which is a little too steep for my taste when you can play Kananaskis for $100. But for the lower rate, I'll be back there in a heartbeat.
  11. I'll probably be dead before that old 909F2 comes out of the bag. I've learned my lesson. I've looked, I've bought...and I've gone back. Rinse, wash, repeat. The moral of the story is, if you find a good 3 wood - stop trying to find a gooder one!!!! lol
  12. Pretty pumped that I pulled the trigger on the U500 this spring. This will fit a certain group, but it's not for me.
  13. lol, not exactly breaking news these days
