  1. Really good explanation overall and I like this advice starting at about 9:00 into the video...."do not try to use the bounce"...."the bounce only saves you on a bad shot".
  2. Agreed. This modern obsession with "the leading edge" is making chipping a lot more complicated than it needs to be
  3. I don't believe that Mickelson's theory and the way he actually chips, is the best method for most players. Keeping in mind that he is one of the most talented short game players of all time
  4. It has the potential to reduce the rotation of the club face in your swing. For some players this helps to minimize a draw/pull/hook. Whether a bigger grip actually helps your impact pattern on the face and your shot results, is something you have to test for yourself
  5. There are some players that have an address position and swing that will "chase" their lie angles. One of the reasons that many good instructors insist that their students do not play with extra upright lie angles, even when a dynamic lie test currently suggests that they "should"
  6. I think the reason that some of the data through the decades may seem off, concerns the Rearward COG. Maltby explains it in his book, in that there is an Rcog that they use for calculating the AVCOG....and then there is another measurement that is used for additional factors, such as how much influence there can be on the shaft leading to more dynamic loft at impact. What they use for the MPF calculation is the distance between the COG and the "intersection point of the face plane with the ground line". The factor in Rcog that can effect the shaft and dynamic loft, is the distance between the COG and the centerline of the hosel
  7. The MPF places a high value on the horizontal COG or what they call "C-dimension", because it creates a wider area on the face for a relatively solid strike. The reason for this is that a strike that is outside or toeside of the COG (sweet-spot) will twist the head more than a strike that is inside or heelside of it. All else equal, a strike that is 1/4" outside of the COG is going to twist the head more than a strike that is 1/4" inside of it. So irons with really short C-dimensions (think long hosel, short blade length), usually have a very small amount of space to work with between the edge of the hosel and the COG (sweet-spot) for a relatively solid strike. This is why all good players from back in the day, learned to develop an impact pattern that was inside of center. Ping was the first company to design irons that didn't require this for pure contact, because they had much longer C-dimensions than anything else in that era
  8. An incredible close to the season by Jin Young Ko. I don't think anybody thought that Korda could be caught after the summer
  9. I hope you realized this was the case a while ago. Was this ever in question?
  10. Weird. That's not even close to what I've measured for the standard DG and Modus 120 in the butt section
  11. Compared to 'standard' Dynamic Gold. If the 120 DG is really that soft in the butt, then it is not even close to the standard version in the butt section. I haven't measured it myself, but question a measurement that shows it being that soft
  12. It's fairly common to see a larger yardage gap in your highest loft clubs, even if the actual loft difference is the same. Has to do with a more glancing strike with extra loft. This is why we don't want to always rely on exact loft gaps, when trying to be precise with a setup
  13. If you go up a full flex in the Modus 120, that could be true for some players, depending on their swing characteristics. A Modus 120 'X' is still softer in the butt and middle vs a DG 'S' flex
  14. The rest of the story is that the DG 'R' weighs more
