  1. Tataki head is a little larger than the others which took a little getting used to st first. Now when I demo a smaller size like a vokey, I miss the larger surface area of the Yururi. Yeah along with the C grind gives max versatility. Feel is a hard, solid, compressed "punishing" of the ball, and spin is unmatched amongst confirming wedges. Finish is beautiful when new, but rusts over time and takes on a more "workman-like appearance." Highly recommended as long as youre not going for a smaller compact look in a wedge.
  2. For steel in irons, I really like the Nippon Modus. Classic and cool with the light red expanding on the shaft in concentric ovals. It's like a graphite influenced sophistication applied directly to the shaft ... No shaft bands to wear off and fray at the edges is a plus. For drivers and 3 woods I'm gravitating toward silver colored with simple graphics. More understated and less distracting than the vibrant reds,oranges and greens that dominated for so long. Wedges I am OK with either black or silver, no bands like the Modus are still a plus, but I'd rather have band
  3. This is a nice pairing, but I went one down in flex and use KBS 610 R+. Less a difference in weight in transition and puts a little more play in the wedge shaft, but the profiles of both shafts with the higher kick points is quite complimentary.
  4. Watched Van Dam's swing yesterday for first time, yeah crazy good. Can be first female professional to avg 300 driving distance.
  5. Power needs to be rewarded just as other golf skills like putting, bunker play, working the ball, accurate wedge play, etc etc does too. If it's only about the long ball, then it's a long drive contest which none of the pga long hitters would be competitive in.
  6. Imho $-taper play about 1/2 stiffer than Tours. If you want a stouter feeling shaft you can go after better than a Tour (which are a bit unpredictable when really pressed) I'd recommend giving $-taper at 1/2 flex less. Good thing about $-taper you can get that awesome mid launch, low spin, flat trajectory of a Tour, but unlike a tour I have found with $-taper if I go at it more aggressively on some swing for whatever reason, the shaft won't overflex. I used to have to get Tours S flex and hard them 1x, now I just use $-taper in stiff without hard stepped.

    Even the announcers when his lead was 1 were talking like it was 3, and only something truly unexpected would get in his way.

    Rory was being Rory missing short putts that didn't even catch the lip. Louie I'm beginning to think is not the clutch player were lead to believe he is. Bryson just bound to have those blow up holes given the way he plays, can't fault him it's gotten him one major already. Wolf? I dunno maybe that swing needs some work. He seems to lack the ability to play certain shots with it. Koepka is fine, that's his game, will continue to be a factor at majors. Rahm is however simply the most talented player of his generation. Will be the first of many majors for him.

    Great for him and the game after the fiasco he went thru 2 weeks ago. He's an immensely talented player and probably will be the most dominant of his generation. Has all the tools now both physically and mentally. bien hecho!

    technically W. Nienaber at +13 has a chance too

    I don't have bland at all. I actually liked watching his more throwback style when guys used to have to plot and work their ways around a golf course, hit long irons into par 4's, and 3 woods to have a shot at rolling one onto a par 5 in 2. Im merely commenting that wasn't going to hold up on the weekend.

    I'm not rooting for or against him but I dont think he'll finish his career with just one major win, that second one could be tomorrow.

    Pins on Thursday/Friday are in friendlier places otherwise theyd never get the field thru on time. Saturdays/Sundays when they use more challenging placements he wasn't competitive....it was just a matter of time.

    Lol Jacobsen used the word "science" when trying to describe the reason guys of different builds can still be high clubhead speed players, but couldn't even explain the science ! Yes science certainly has a place in sports, just not from guys who are way past their prime
