  1. These clubs are only a year old at this point, but Titleist is due to release the new line of irons this fall. Any rumors as to whether the new version of T100S will be released with the full line or remain a standalone offering on a separate cycle?
  2. It’s very interesting. As a society, we seem to choose our words more carefully than ever before, yet still get offended more than ever before. I wonder if we’re too focused on only half of the problem?
  3. At least you didn’t sh**k it and hit a sweet old lady in her keister. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same.
  4. Whoever mentioned there being degrees of crimes is spot on. That’s what cancel culture doesn’t grasp and is the source of backlash against cancel culture. Context matters. EVERYONE agrees that JT was wrong for using the word. He was called out, got embarrassed and has learned his lesson. Time to move on.
  5. Very cool story. I can’t point to a singular instance the way you can, however, I can definitely say that it strengthened my relationship with my Dad when I was a teenager, helped me choose the college I would attend, and made countless friends. Probably the coolest of all, is that it is now coming full circle and I’m taking my young boys out with me to play and the conversations that take place outside walking beside a 5 and 9 year old for 3 hours is absolutely priceless.
  6. The T100S has been out for less than a year, however we are due for the traditional release this September. I wonder if there will be an updated T100S in this release, or if it will be staggered like the current version. Still early, but has anyone heard any rumors?
  7. I have an irrational love for the Tournament of Champions. I never pay much attention to the post Fed Ex cup fall schedule, so this feels like the beginning of a new season to me every year. The sun and abundance of green is also a mental escape from the middle of winter. It’s a good field on an entertaining course. My wife and I honeymooned on Maui and I was able to play the course. It’s fun to get to see it on TV and relive that week.
  8. This is true. I called them a couple of years ago because I was interested in trying out their wedges but couldn’t find any local retailers. I called the number listed on their website expecting to get an automated system, but the guy who answered was in marketing. He was very knowledgeable and after talking for a few minutes, he sent me several wedges to demo for a couple of weeks. There’s no better “wedge fitting” than taking out several wedges onto your home course and hitting the exact shots required at the course(s) you play most. I ended up with RM-22 Raw and bought additional RM-22’s a few months on sale. Love Fourteen wedges. Hopefully these come to market.
  9. The plural and possessive forms of T100 keeps throwing me off. Takes me a second to figure out if someone is talking about the new T100S or T100’s.
  10. Is it common to release clubs only to tour players? Don’t most manufacturers make money by selling clubs to the masses, who want to play the clubs that tour players use?
  11. Modus 105 iron shaft. Interesting. I wonder how many tour players use 105 vs 120’s.
  12. No kidding! It’s very possible that the Wuhan virus started on that grip.
  13. Another possible benefit to the T100S is for those T100 golfers who use AVX to gain additional distance but miss the greenside spin. The T100S offers those players the chance to pair these irons with a traditional premium ball for the short game spin.
  14. 41 days. For me, there aren’t many things better than cutting out of work an hour early on a Thursday, getting in 9 holes with some friends and then getting home with enough daylight to fire up the grill and play in the yard with the kids. Life is just better with more daylight.
  15. I’ve noticed Faldo’s bias towards Euros for years. Frankly, I assumed everyone knew he was biased and had just moved on. It’s interesting that some haven’t noticed it The way he typically displays it is just after a good shot. If it’s an American hitting a good shot, it either doesn’t get much of a comment or best case, he’ll call it a good shot in monotone. If it’s a Euro, it’s much higher enthusiasm and/or he praises the player for their skill and not just the outcome of that particular shot. The exceptions to this rule are Koepka and Tiger.
