[quote name='Dizz' timestamp='1295113991' post='2898628'] [quote name='jaskanski' timestamp='1295113786' post='2898619'] [quote name='drpino' timestamp='1295113495' post='2898612'] Weren't the black-badged 755s they made for Jay Haas (??) forged from carbon steel as opposed to the retail red-badged 755s being forged from stainless? That's one example that comes close to Titleist having two versions of a club AT RETAIL. At least they differentiated the carbon heads with a black badge as opposed to a company like TM that purposefully tries to make tour-only clubs look as close as possible t
  2. From what I've seen and read before, shafts pulled by tour van technicians get put through the band saw before being thrown in the trash. I can totally see the same happening to prototypes which may contain valuable IP. Excess 'tour' inventory being scrapped would make sense if a brand wanted to protect their retail sales/prices, rather than deal with resellers (much like TM and Adams).

[quote name='robelinks' timestamp='1294171798' post='2874787'] [quote name='designdog' timestamp='1294067920' post='2872589'] Let me add an "adjacent" comment, not about DLIII, but about one of his sponsors: Polo. I was raised on Brooks Brothers, and when I reached some maturity, began to wear a lot of Polo. Before it was a mainstay in every department store. Anyway, last weekend my wife and I drove to Williamsburg, VA for our annual photo session with their beautiful Christmas wreaths in the restored area. We stopped at the outlet mall, and stepped in to the Polo store. And stepped righ

[/quote] I'll be damned. All this time I thought Duval was using the Nike Forged Titanium at his Open win, but sure enough, it's a Titleist. However, he was using Nike irons. Oddly enough, in the US Open and the PGA in 2001, the same year he won the Open, he was gaming a Nike driver. http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?contract
  5. Price drops for Canadian Thanksgiving weekendGot some stuff left from my last ad, I really need to get this stuff gone, my GF has booked a Christmas vacation to Oahu, therefore no reasonable offers refused and discounts available for multiple purchases. All prices are in US$ 1. Titleist 907D4 8.5° w/ Diamana WB 73x flex. As can be seen in the pictures below, the club is used and has a couple of small chips on the topline, barely noticeable at address. A great driver (Rory McIlroy's specs, bought from a fellow Wrx'er) but, for me, not better than my Speedline Classic, therefore is taking up sp

I had to work Thurs/Fri and had no problems avoiding media until I got home and could watch it on PVR.

[quote name='SwingBlade' date='14 July 2010 - 07:20 PM' timestamp='1279149648' post='2576373'] When 70 to 80% of the PGA, LPGA, & Senior Tour players start using this technology, no matter which club maker produces it, I'll then believe it is more than a matter of personal preference. Some are implying that only a moron can't comprehend the significant putting enhancements enabled with this technology. If true, that kinda makes the PGA, LPGA & Senior Tour players a collectively simple lot. Either that, or they are knowingly allowing the most critical aspect of their games to be con

[quote name='UNLHusker' date='14 July 2010 - 02:03 PM' timestamp='1279130604' post='2575708'] All over sportscenter and open championship talk that tiger quotes that the greens at St. Andrews are slower than hes used to so he ditches the putter hes used the past 12 years and on to a heavier putter. Anyone know what putter he switched to and any comments on st. andrews greens and course conditions tigers the first to say that the greens are slow. Does this have to do with the weather conditions or just flat slow? Lets here what you all have to think!!! [/quote] Links greens are typical

I have had a custom set with conforming grooves on back order now since May and Callaway say they won't have any more conforming heads until at least August. I spoke to a reputable custom fitter and he said that he talked to his rep and heard that Callaway have been running down stock for the last few months because a direct replacement is coming out soon. This would kind of make sense given the recent price drop. Has a

[quote name='remlapr' date='14 July 2010 - 12:12 PM' timestamp='1279123927' post='2575470'] I have no idea how St Andrews plays, but it seems a soggy course and stinger 2 irons would not go well together. I don't know though, maybe the fairways stay firm and just drain no matter what?? [/quote] You don't tend to get soggy fairways at links courses, even if there's a storm. They're basically built on sand dunes and consequently don't have drainage issues.

[/quote] Highly unlikely given the risks of working with Beryllium (its compounds, such as BeCu are known human carcinogens when inhaled)
