  1. I generally like the hitter pattern better but my issue at the point where the flying wedge reaches what I'll call the exhaustion point ...it's about knee high level on the follow thru where it becomes impractical to retain it. But it's also not possible to come to a complete stop either. I think maybe this is where S&T introduces the wrist recock, but I haven't found it easier incorporating it into my swing yet.
  2. I recently dumped a lower lofted 3 wood and went to a 3 wood length with what would be considered 4 wood loft (16.5). this also allowed me to ditch the hybrid and use a 3 iron again which always looked better to my eye. driver has been easier to hit for a while off the tee making it the "safer" choice than 3 wood. i went to a 3 wood that was more designed to be easier to launch off the turf too.
  3. Yururi, their wedges and the Ping putter only thing to have managed to stay in my bag for almost a decade
  4. Was looking for something less harsh than steel shafted clubs now that the weathers turning colder. Saw a good deal on these and jumped on it. Nice shaped head (better than their higher end Apex Forged imo), and the steel equivalent of that shaft probably my favorite bend profile of all time. The shaft performance and feel certainly didn't disappoint (although maybe slightly heavier would have been a better fit with rest of my set). The head also performs really well however it clearly had the "slipperiness" of cast and not on same level as the apex forged. If I switch again (which I hope as I need to stop doing this!), that would be most likely reason. Definitely a combination others should consider though the player performance category, much better value than forged equivalents than most other alternatives.
  5. no more Erin Hills, what a disaster. any records set there should be asterisked
  6. He made sexist comments and when given a chance to explain himself doubled down. This wasn't CBS' fault .
  7. 17 may not photograph well but it's green makes it plenty interesting. 18 also had it's fair share of bogeys (Norman 86), Sandies (Lyle) and bridies (Mickelson) to leave a range of outcomes open for leaders and pursuers. 2 is a great hole but the problem with having it later in the round is that almost no one eagles it, unlike 13 and 15. Many fans I think make the mistake of thinking the tournament is over after 16 because it's last hole with water, but that's simply not true.
  8. VJ stunk on the greens. He was the only winner who'd be near the bottom in putting stats for the week.
  9. From being across the pond you might appreciate these comments from Montie on 97' masters. Love or hate him, have to respect his candor, which could also be self deprecating. (Montie part starts around 4:30 minute mark)
  10. Amazing how time flies. I remember like it was yesterday. He schooled Love on the first playoff hole by hitting 3 wood so Love would hit 2nd. Tiger parked his approach in middle of the green, and then watched Love yank a wedge in the bunker. Short sided, the one place he couldn't miss, he proceeded to make bogey to Tiger's par. Rest, as they say, is history as he would go onto join Jordan, Federer, and Brady as the greatest athletes of an incredible generation that put all of them squarely into the GOAT discussion. https://golfweek.usatoday.com/gallery/tiger-woods-first-pga-tour-victory-25-years-ago/
  11. With 11 not being the sharp dogleg it's always going to be more reachable in 2. It won't play like a true par 5.
  12. Sabbatini has a setup typical of what you see out of a lot club players: TM woods, Mizuno irons, Vokey wedges, cameron putter
  13. loft if more forgiving because it reduces side spin. the 100s would be less forgiving if they didnt position the weight lower.
  14. Like how the evenflow has become a very popular offering for project x

    Honma TW-X Irons

    Tried them earlier in the year due to super low prices for new and mint sets on Ebay. Here's what I found: - they look cool - the soles are unbearable on shorter irons - because of the hollowness and weight moved back, they lose too much carry on shots struck low on the face - I also hate the stock Modus 105 shaft; too light and too stiff is a bad combination - as much as i wanted to like them, had to move on quickly
