  4. I've travelled a few times; events held at Medinah, Firestone, and Valhalla. Crooked Stick is practically in my backyard.
  5. Yeah, so long as you don't get hit with the club head, it doesn't really hurt to get hit by a club.
  6. That sounds like a blast...let's stand around all day and watch guys take 10 minutes between shots. You almost need to drink to enjoy yourself at these watching-paint-dry Tour events.
  7. You get one swing, and you better hope it connects, before you're rushed.
  8. I can understand cracking down on vile, profane insults hurled at players, but calling BAD "Brooksie" is pretty harmless. I'll stop attending tour events out of principle.
  9. Or it could be his abrasive personality. Just a thought.
  10. I didn't read the MGS data closely enough to know whether this question was answered, but I'm curious what the AoA was on the robot's swings. TXG did a test of the 3.2 in comparison to the ProV1 earlier this year. The Ksig was considerably higher spinning with the 7i and PW, but it was only a few hundred RPMs (with a higher standard deviation, granted) off the driver. Now, I realize Matt isn't a robot, but he's got about as repeatable a swing as you'll find outside of a tour player. He swings anywhere from 117 - 125mph and was seeing an average spin of ~2700 with driver. That's 700rpm less than the MGS test (~3400) at a similar swing speed. I guess the other unknown variable is how much the PXG driver/shaft combo used in the MGS test spins. In the TXG test, the difference in spin between the ProV1 and 3.2 on driver was about 300rpm (~2400 vs ~2700) and in the MGS test it was 700rpm (~2700 vs. ~3400).
  11. I was running low on balls and picked up my first double-dozen of the 3.2 a week or two ago. I had been playing the 2019 TP5x and the Maxfli Tour for most of this season, but regularly played the 3.1 before that. I've had two rounds with them and I've noticed a couple of drives that I hit on the screws that were a good 10 yards shorter than what I expected them to have been. I think I'll stay away from the Kirkland balls until the seemingly mythical new 4-piece comes out and is tested.

  13. If he were smart, he'd sell them on Ebay for $100 per dozen.
