  1. The larger the fairways, the more maintenance and watering costs. Looks like a great course. Looked like a great event.
  2. To put it in perspective, after 4 rounds of golf only 1 player was under par, and it was single digits. So bomb and gouge may leave a chalky taste in your mouth, but you still have to get the ball in the hole. If they don't like the approach... change the ball... otherwise brace yourself because it's never going to stop. Snead, Arnie, Jack, Tiger, Rory, DJ... whoever it is, they all have used length to take advantage. Get stronger, get more flexible, and do the same thing.

    That guy had such a hot garbage swing.

    I think people are confusing with Matt, who was hitting a dismal number of fairways for a stretch of the tournament, and it eventually caught up with him imo. and when you're hitting a 5 iron length wedge out of the rough from 160 with a hulk smash,,, it goes high, spins more, and lands on the green. Sorry, to all the folks crying over the length displayed, but he's just playing within the rules. Rollback golf balls if you want something different.

    Matt should be proud of the performance, but he got away with murder off the tee.... finally caught up with him. Bryson played very well.... and still has so much improvement to do with the wedges. It would be scary once those are dialed in
  8. Every dominate player has been a long hitter. It's a statistical advantage. Need proof? How much easier is it to play from the ladies tees vs the back tees at any course. Bombing the ball has the same effect.
  9. Balls need to spin more... it will cause more offline shots and force a more conservative swing and play. It's the ball, it always has been. You don't fix that, you'll never change it.
  10. Does Titleist give players any financial incentives to switch to the new stuff right away? Or do you think they get dialed in so quickly that players feel they perform the same or better than previous setup so they just make the switch. I can imagine if a player was in a slump with the driver, a fresh stick might help boost their confidence.
  11. I'm not super familiar with iBlade, but the T100 has a lot of tungsten to make it very forgiving in a compact package with a thin top line. I'm sure they are both great irons but I'd give the nod to the T100.
  12. When you're on, everything seems so easy. It's a great feeling.
  13. it's life and death... you start with life, and somewhere on the course you start digging your grave, and after 18 you just jump into it and die. but make sure you have fun. I think it was best summed up as a good walk spoiled ... and you can choose to spoil it, or enjoy it... it's up to you.
