  1. Your 230 yard 3 iron carry distance is longer than the majority of Tour pros. Presumably, your swing speed is very high and I expect you will have no trouble at launching an x flex steel shafted Mizuno H5 16* 1 iron or 18* 2 iron with a high trajectory.
  2. Which loft (s) do you have in the EZ ?
  3. Buy S55 from 5 iron thru PW. Play hybrids in the 4 and 3 lofts. No long irons, no problem.
  4. Have you swung both the JPX850 and JPXEZ hybrids ? Other than photos, I have never seen either one. The reason I chose the EZ is because Mizuno's description promotes that model has having the highest ball flight.
  5. Well, I decided to order the larger head version, which is JPX-EZ, , 16* loft. Off the tee boxes I want to see how this one compares to my 15* Cleveland FL 3 fairway metal. If I can get some decent height trajectory with it I will probably replace my 3 fairway metal with this hybrid. The last time I played a 16* hybrid was the Cleveland Mashie 1. That one provided good accuracy, and distance with bounce-roll, but it's height trajectory and carry was not enough to justify replacing a 3 fairway.
  6. Retail store sales personnel dissuade people from buying Titleist CB (or MB), that's for sure. I think the golf equipment industry marketing is too focused on labeling and categorizing their models. Consequently, company sales reps, store sales personnel, internet equipment reviewers etc... all echo the marketing mantra. From a theoretical business perspective, I understand why the industry does it this way. But from a players perspective, consumers are missing out on some excellent products, such as the Titleist CB model.
  7. May I ask what is it that you did not like in the UT, U45 and UDI? It's not that I didn't like any of them - rather they are incredibly hard to find. I'm looking for a 18 degree (2 iron) in any of them. Callaway has apparently discontinued production of the UT and Taylormade the UDI. Odd that all of these manufacturers came out with something in this category and then ceased production. If I had 'my pick' right now, I'd love to find a UDI and then add a graphite shaft to it. The love the weight balance with graphite versus the X100 I play in my irons. If you like the C-Taper Lite, Mi
  8. In a forum search I did not find much (if any ) information about these two current Mizuno hybrids. The 850 has a blue colored head and the EZ is grey with some blue trim. If you have swung one or both of these hybrid models, please post comments here regarding impact sound, shaft, comparison to other hybrids etc... Thanks.
  9. A few here have done little more than post a personal attack message. Those I probably ignored. In my mind DJ is not "the bad guy". I simply pointed out that (on hole 5) he had the option of stating that he was not sure why the ball moved. Instead he chose to declare he did not cause the ball to move. Thus, he invited the controversy. Six years ago DJ (as well as his caddie) decided not to read and, or, comprehend the single page of local local Rules pertaining to the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. Consequently, DJ incurred a penalty which cost him the chance for a victory. At that
  10. Regarding Exceptions 1 and 2, in your citations you are omitting the final statements of each of those Exceptions. Specifically, #1's full content includes "direct line to the hole" and #2 includes "direction of play". Those are the conditions relevant to DJ's hole #10 situation, and reasons an Official might decline a request for relief. As for Nicklaus' and McCarron's comments, your interpretation of their meaning is different from mine.I have no problem with that and am not sure why you would , either. Regarding the ball movement on hole 5. my take on that is DJ brought much of the controve
  11. Why follow your opening comments with an "LOL"? I do not recall ever writing that something someone posted here was "wrong". That's your word. I have written and, or, implied that simply because an Official made a Rules decision does not mean it was correct. Others here seem to have believe that any decision an Official makes is correct. The reality is that at each U Open there are more than a dozen Officials observing play. In many situations-conditions the interpretation of the Rules is subjective, causing a range of possible decisions for the same play. Regarding the 3rd cut of rough, as
  12. Exception #3 uses the words "clearly impracticable". The definition of "impracticable" is "impossible". Nowhere in #3 is the word "reasonable" used. "Reasonable" is used in #2 in reference to the stroke itself, not the result of the stroke. That's why #3 exists. You can't pick words from other exceptions and use them wherever you'd like. The words have specific definitions and are placed carefully for very good reason. At the end of the day, all you have to do is ask yourself the question which you still seem to be unwilling or unable to answer. Was it clearly impracticable (impossible) for DJ

  14. How the ball lies is absolutely relative criteria to an official making a Rules determination. In this case , to be granted relief, DJ was supposed to have a reasonable chance of playing towards the line of the temporary-immovable-obstruction and, or, reaching that same obstruction. From his lie, neither of these was likely and, or, reasonable, and that is why the USGA official's decision (to grant relief) was an error. You didn't answer the question. Since we can all agree that some players can hit it a mile and other players can't, then by your rationale, 2 different players must receive
