  3. Me the more I scrolled down this witb. Sweet Jesus those wedge stampings and putters.
  4. 2014 Big Bertha. So easy. Goes the number I need, launches out of the window I'm looking for.
  5. Again- the internal desire to win and be the absolute best. Every player on tour has this confidence, borderline arrogance and cockiness, that they believe they are the best. Can't be bought. BUT, show me the average of what it cost for a player to get to the PGA tour (junior golf, college golf, expenses q schools) ...it will blow your mind. You don't just move to Jupiter or Sea Island after college to play professional golf without being flush with cash. When q school was a direct path to the PGA tour, average age of graduates was around 29-31. Those guys had to have ways to make ends meet for more than half a decade..and you can't sustain it on the mini tours. Regardless, if you're good enough, you'll find a way to make it to the show. "Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't want to work hard"
  6. To make it playing it takes 1) Money. 2) Guts. 3) An internal desire and focus to win. 4) Talent. 3 of those things can't be taught or bought. To have a chance you need money or financial backing, and you need to be accepting and willing to lose it all in order to make it. With no direct path to the PGA Tour from q school, it has made having money that much more important. Size of the purses on canadian, latin, or web tour don't offset the costs and expenses, they just give you a chance to make it to the big show. Bottom line is- Guys that make it have earned their way there, and they deserve it. But the money it takes to get there can't be overlooked. Would love to see the average cost that a player spent on golf over his lifetime just to make it to his first year on the PGA Tour.
