  1. Not really on the LPGA, hasnt there been some majorly high profile players not getting clubs they want to test/replace because they arnt with the company.
  2. Its this, the USGA had articles about how much money each US Open brings in. The mens subsidizes everything, the US Womens Open is losing 10.4 million a year. https://golfweek.usatoday.com/2020/03/03/usga-reveals-us-womens-open-loses-millions-annually/
  3. This would do it pretty handily. Bryson was taking 2min 40s to play his shot compared to Wolfe at sub 40 seconds. Its supposed to be a 60/40second shot clock as well isnt. Well there ya go, Bryson never wins anything agian.
  4. Funnily enough, swimming did ban specific materials for the body suits some teams were using. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/full-body-swimsuit-now-banned-professional-swimmers/story?id=9437780 Though the swimming governing bodies acted extremely quickly, the suits were introduced in 2008 and after a mass amount of recrods were broken they were banned before 2009 in the US and 2010 internationally. That said, Bryson is still going to have his advantage. Hes bulked up, will figure out how to legally reduce spin and everything else to get optimal launch and spin conditio
  5. 4/5/6 in the 765 and 7-PW in 965. Works out really well, I have no issues with the set up. 765s are slightly weak to ensure the gapping is correct.
  6. The foam is mainly there to modify the sound and feeling of a hollow body iron, it does basically nothing to boost speeds off the face. The only reason there could effectively be a dud is if there is a major problem with the head, a crack or something, and with thin faces and hollow bodies cracks and things do/can occur.
  7. If the tour did this DJ would have an even bigger lead, he was -34 heading into East Lake through the previous events. His closest competitor would have been Webb at -21, with a few other players in the low teens. No one would have stood a chance. Rham would have been -8 entering the week still. McIlroy would have been at -1.
  8. New driver. I had an M1 explode on me, then my Hzrdus Black broke in a borrowed M1 driver next round I played. Its the end of the season so Im using a spare driver I had stuff laying around for, might get a SIM at the start of next season Ive played one round with a demo one and I loved it, maybe see what Callaway does. New 3 wood. I have a Callaway Epic Sub Zero, and I hate the thing. It goes left on left for me I dont know why ive kept it in the bag for so long. But leaning towards the SIM Titanium 3 wood. New 2 hybrid. My i20 is getting old, the shaft is de-laminatin
  9. Phil needs to string together a perfect four days, and get really lucky. You see this happen at The Masters, with the old guys in contention for the the first 1 to 1.5 days and just slowly fade away, father time is undefeated. He basically trounced the Champions Tour, was 70 yards past the guys in his group off the tee. He isnt long enough, or strong enough to keep getting away with sloppy shots against the younger guys. He even said it himself during the champions tour interviews, he gets tired, but on the champions tour when he feels himself getting tired he can hop on a cart and
  10. So youre hitting down on the driver? Youre never going to kill spin as much as you want with just a driver set up. You will be fighting to balance launch and spin, Sergio is a prime example of this, hes way down on the driver and plays it with 12+ degrees of loft and a massively heavy shaft. You will probably want to look at the SubZero/SIM/ other low spin head with a heavy shaft in it, a Hzrdus Black 75/65g is a low launch spin killer. Probably also want to put the TP5x, or the AVX ball also if you want to bring spin down further you can drop a few hundred spin with that change as well.
  11. They have to have them slower for that because there has been one in the last few years that they cut the greens too fast and short and when the wind comes the balls dont stay in place on the greens. Plus traditionally bigger mounds and sloping on every green if they dont make it slow enough removes a ton of pin places unless they just want to punish players on every hole.
  12. Didnt Tiger just not show up for the play offs one year and had enough points to win it?
  13. DJ made 1.7 million dollars. https://thegolfnewsnet.com/golfnewsnetteam/2020/08/23/2020-the-northern-trust-money-purse-winners-share-prize-money-payout-120180/ Champions tour pays out 250k to 400k for a win, the total prize purse this week is 3 million, so likely above the 400k which is the payout for a 2.5million dollar purse tournament.
  14. you need to get on a launch monitor. At your swing speed and angle of attack you will have an optimal launch-spin window. Your toweringly high miss to the right has less to do with 1 degree of drivers loft and all to do with your delivered face angles and loft. Wishon: The practical facts about spin and shaft design So if you get on a launch monitor and youre 4 degrees up, but launching too low, adjust the loft up to get to the optimized launch conditions to max out your driver. The WRX article has trackman stats to optimize carry, total distance, and roll out, so if you want something low
  15. Callaway has a bunch of version of the sub zero, check for diamonds on the hosel.
  16. maybe they didnt have room to set it up? Ive seen it off to the side in a few events when they cant put it at the back. They still show ball data on the broadcast and a flight tracker, might just not be true readings or optimized reading position.
  17. probably a major amount of customer support and community support staff. Tour is pretty much going no fans until next season right? From a business stand point, not worth keeping those people on your payroll for another few months if they arent going to be bringing any value in.
  18. 6800 isnt getting that crazy for the women now a days. The old trackman stats of LPGA players averaging 93mph with the driver from 2013 is pretty outdated, several D1 school coaches have said that their women are getting up to 100mph with the driver, and I think it the the Alabama coach saying his team has a club head speed average of 102mph with several of the top girls being over 105, and the lowest being above 95mph.

    Iron Lofts

    3 degrees 22 and 25 degrees. One is 215 yard carry the other is 200ish. I play that because its a good gapping. If I had to the gap could be a 5 iron and a 5 hybrid if that gave me a proper distance between clubs.
  20. There is an M1 430 head that was available. That thing was brutal though. If you didnt strike it you lost so much distance, and it killed spin. Justin Rose for a while tried to use it and kept putting back the 460 head into the bag because thats how unforgiving it was. I dont think any of the pros at the time seriously used it. If youre struggling with a driver, a smaller driver isnt going to help. Its just going to exacerbate your issues with the driver.
  21. Depends on the fitting. My fitting, I had nearly everything measured. I did a full bag and it took about 4 hours - so driver, woods/hybrids, irons, wedges, and putter. Driver took about an hour different combos of shaft and head - fitter gave me several shaft options at the end for a free shaft, an upgraded shaft +100 dollars, and a exotic shaft +700 (that they openly said I didnt need for the minor gains over a 100 dollar shaft). Woods were about the same, however the fitter told me I shouldnt bother changing the 3 wood, they could only get me minor gains and said 7 yards of roll and 5 yar
  22. You kidding me? I seriously think the sponsors would love the extra space for ads on a push cart. You could put logos on the wheel caps. Get a flat piece of plastic that hangs down between the handle to the frame for a billboard of sorts. Branding on the strap. Its not as simple as the pull out of your trunk and its ready, but the caddy put its together before the round and youre set. Its just more real estate for ads.
  23. "They are giving me another garbage ruling as usual" Right after the rules offical calls for the 2nd opinion.
