  1. The performance probably has more to due with the truss structure raising the center of gravity than extra stability. Hitting a putt off center is not going to twist the metal of a standard plumber neck.
  2. Putting on 25 lbs of muscle without gear takes years, not a few weeks.
  3. They are pricing themselves out of the market in North America. In Canada $60, same price as TP5, Bridgestone Tour Balls, Chromesoft and $10 more than Z-Stars. Prov1 full price is only $5 more, and Prov1 "practice" balls which play the same can be had for $40 almost all the time. If they want golfers to dip a toe and try them, Volvik will have to knock $10 off the price to at least put it level with Z-Star. I'd like to try a sleeve of S3's or S4's next spring if Golftown would break up a box.
  4. Monty has played GI clubs his whole career. 2002 Big Bertha's at the 2004 (?) Open Championship which are huge, and shot a 64 one round. When he signed with Hogan he tried playing blades for a bit and it didn't work out. Went to CFT (Hogan GI) irons and played much better. Even some tour players prefer a wide sole and some offset.
  5. I agree with the announcers on this. Clearly improving his lie and not in the intent of any rule.
  6. If machining is contracted out then the machine shop will generate the CNC code. The customer (putter maker) will supply the solid model CAD (solid works, solid edge, etc...) file that the machine shop will import into CAM (MasterCAM, Gibbs, etc...). The toolpaths and from that code will be generated by the CAM software. The machine shop will also design and make all workholding/fixturing needed to hold the putter at all stages of machining. This is how it works 99% of the time with machine shops. The customer provides a solid model and the machine shop does everything else. That is why sma
  7. It might have more to do with the specs of the clubs than blade vs cavity. For example (but not always): blades tend to have shorter shaft lengths, slightly flatter lie angles and slightly higher static (not swing) weights stock. This may work better for you.
  8. > @WonIron said: > Anyone remember the 80's circa Accuforms?? Canadian company. Joey Sindelar played 'em Davis Love at the start of his career as well. The sweetspot is in the middle (not heelside). They have milled faces and grooves, which is quite something for an 80's set of blades. I have a set of PTM's (flatback blades) 3-SW. Wish I was good enough to play them properly. The Muirfield 20ths are for sure smaller though.
  9. Looks good. Just be aware that with the position of the neck, there will be heavy toe hang. Quick guestimate in the 5:30 range, maybe even full.
  10. > @lefty1978 said: > I personally think pro golfers should play wood, similar to baseball where pros hit wood bats. Amateurs hit metal/composite. If there was one event a year where they had to play steel shafted persimmon, steel shafted blades with no "speed foam" or hot face tech, no wedges over 56* and a putter at 36" max (ie no armlock, long) with a grip size limit it would be a ton of fun to watch. I think Tiger would dominate something like this. It will probably never happen. :'(

Gorgeous work by Tad.
  12. To be more clear: steel shafted (50's-80's style) persimmons. Tad Moore is hickories only. Can't find anything from NCW, but if you have a link I would appreciate it. Linksoul's woods are all steel shafted and Louisville makes them.
  13. > @dlygrisse said: > You can get a Louisville golf classic 50's persimmon for $275. Who makes these clubs for them? I'm guessing Louisville golf, I don't know of any other persimmon makers out there right now. But if I were to play persimmon I would rather find some nice vintage stuff, Mac or Hogan. Correct: the only company making persimmon woods these days is Louisville Golf. They have stated it directly. Might as well buy from the source. I have 1-3-5 Classic 50's from them and they are gorgeous and playable once you figure out the weight and tee height. Fun to play on a short
