    When it comes to old sticks I care. Especially when a player uses something old that they can’t get out of the bag. You wouldn’t get it

    Meanwhile I could list 15-20 old school sets of irons I love, because I played and/or lusted after them 20-30 years ago.  Not someone else on the internet.  Nice try bud. 

     

    Go to some stores that have used golf clubs and mess with all the old clubs and see what you like.

  2. I see it more here than I do in real life.  I imagine if you are 'one of those guys' who barely broke 90 but "needed" MB/CB's, you'd probably get harassed.

     

     

    However - I think a combo set with the new T100's is in my future - they look like they are going to be awesome at address.

    I've played a lot of different sticks. If you can compress a ball, anything that's a high end forging feels amazing. Mizuno can have a slightly different sound (which I think many love in fairness), as does Miura, as does Srixon. It's all person preference. If you're a talented ball striker and hit middle, everything feels good out the screws. At least now you can ravenously consume every video on Youtube with mizuno in the title, SMASH that like button and comment below nOtHinG feEls LiKE a MIzuNO.

    Just here to bump this post again, in case anyone missed it.

    David duval shut the clubface alot...

    On purpose - strong grip, closed club face... used his body rotation to square the club up.

     

    Duval was my favorite player growing up.  During this time period, everyone liked to say Steve Elkington had the best swing in golf - sort of like everyone with Adam Scott now.  

     

    I've always loved Sergio's lag/hand action.  I think its beautiful in its own way.   Ernie's tempo is amazing. 

     

    Currently - I like JT's swing the most, I like how vertical he is and how he gets through the ball... but I think the most aesthetically pleasing to watch is Rory's.

    You're correct as it is a little more than twice that number. The actual cost of a pro-line driver is $95-100, with the head costing $75-80 of that, haha. 🙂 Madison

    A one-off driver just for Bryson with all the engineering and differing production necessary for said one-off club?


    I'd guess you are short changing R&D and production costs by for amount.

    Several on here have said variations of this, and it's completely false.

     

    Bryson has the cash to be a free agent...much like several others...and experiment with all OEMs until he finds something that meets his needs.

     

    Most on here are too busy bashing the dude to realize that this very well may be his point.

     

    Either manufacture something that meets his standards (unrealistic or not)...or...free agency is on the horizon.

     

    Also...to be clear...he's a very hard dude to root for.

     

    But let's not pretend he didn't know exactly what he was doing.

    You're giving an angry outburst A LOT of credit...

    You have to keep in mind that in much of Canada and the US hockey hotbeds, kids are put on the frozen pond with a stick in their hands long before they ever meet a coach.

    No I dont, because I'm from one and what you said contradicts everything I've ever seen/heard.

     

    Doesnt mean you're wrong, but I've never heard this.

    Actually, which handed you are in hockey has more to do with how old one is when they begin learning to skate with a stick in their hand. The younger someone is when they start, the more likely they are to have the dominant hand at the top of the stick.

     

    I wont drag the thread down any more after this post - but every hockey coach I had as a young kid taught dominate hand high, and everyone I've ever played with from Canada learned that way... so the idea that dominate hand high isn't actively taught in Canada (and in parts of the States) is news to me.

    This is definitely on the softer side. It’s basically a deep milled style but with diamonds instead of brush marks. I find it soft as anything I have ever putted with, actually put a firmer grip on it to offset it once the stock one wore out. Although the different style grip was more because the you can’t get a replacement stock model, so this was the only grip that was same size. 

     

    Perfect feedback, thank you.  I think I'll look for one to try, I've been wanting a mid mallet.

    I know a lot of Canadians who winter here or Snowbirds as we call them--- I have had them explain the lefty Hockey thing and I fully understand it. Has to do with a slapshot

     

    In hockey most people teach dominant hand on top... and everyone in Canada learns this way.  So right handed people play "lefty".  Mostly for stickhandling btw, rather than any assistance with shooting (and def not slappers, where your dominate hand down the stick would help).

    LOL.  Love this post.  I never thought Mizuno's lived up to their hype, but maybe that's just because they have so much hype... And we're talking about all the way back to the MP-14's.

     

    Dont get me wrong.  Mizuno makes great irons... Just not some "magical" feel.
