  1. Yep, contrary to popular convention I would like to see him move away from "hitting bombs", hit more fairways (for him) and rely on his experience and Augusta magic. Would love to see him contend again.
  2. My point was to say he relies on green reading books more than many others. Given his inability to rely on this particular data point, I would say it puts him at a disadvantage compared to those who have more experience on the Augusta greens.
  3. "Look to my coming on the first light of the fifth fourth day, at dawn in the afternoon, look to the east 18th green."
  4. ANGC does not allow green reading books for the Masters.
  5. This is what I came here to say. Does Jordan winning today may him statistically less likely to win next week? I know all tournaments are mutually exclusive but I would love to see the historical data.
  6. I miss @PuttLeftHitRight and the passion he showed. He was a man of his convictions and I admire that.
  7. Ping G400 with the Tour 65 shaft since 12/2017 I think. Has been a faithful servant but it can see the TSi3 in the rear view mirror ominously approaching.
  8. Love the bag and particularly the headcovers. Voodoo economics reminded me of this dude. "The Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act? Which, anyone? Raised or lowered?... raised tariffs, in an effort to collect more revenue for the federal government. Did it work? Anyone? It did not work and the US sank deeper into the Great Depression."
  9. Another vote for the MMCs. Favourite iron and awesome combination of looks, feel and performance. Can't fault them and would buy them all over again. I have 6-P in the MMC, a 4 & 5 iron in the MP-18 Fli Hi and a HMB 5 iron. Could play them all, maybe like the Fli Hi a little bit more than the HMB but it's marginal. You cannot go wrong with any of the MP-20 range. Lots of shafts and grips to choose from too. Good luck!
  10. Think it's called the DP Race to Dubai. DP Shipping are a freight company out of Dubai. Westy received $2m for winning last year, which isn't $15m but it's not nothing.
  11. Thanks for the update. My normal conditions are medium to soft, and the 60 D works fine off hardpan so I might also take the plunge.
  12. I am curious to know what you think of the 54 D. I have the 52 & 56 SM7 both F grind which are fine. However I have my 60 in D which I love out of bunkers, rough, flops etc.. very versatile even around firm greens. Was contemplating perhaps a 56 in D as I rarely use it for full swings.
  13. I did the exact same. I currently play the G400 @ 9* with the Tour shaft in X. Found I got much better numbers (spin optimised around 2200 with higher ball speed) with the TSi3 head @ 10* turned down to 9.25* with the weight in T1 - can't recall the last time I missed heel side of centre. This was using the Tensei white in stiff. Just waiting for the new stick to turn up.
  14. I have a Ping 5 wood (i25) which is very reliable and lower spin. Just picked up a Ping G425 19* hybrid which does everything I need at a lower trajectory. It's so solid, piercing flight, and slightly more controllable than the 5 wood. Can adjust +/-1.5* either way, and can flatten the lie to make it less prone to go left. It's very hot, and I would recommend you add it to the testing mix. I have been using it mainly off the tee on par 4s where I need it hit it straight ~220 yards.
  15. They did mention his birdie which took him to outright 2nd was worth $500k, as opposed to three way tie with Bri and Bry. Not an insignificant amount of money, but I take your point.
