  1. Why are you calling him an idiot? Are you saying his desire for getting more from his physical abilities is stupid or idiotic?
  2. Very true, but I think that's where some things based on performance such as driving distance would automatically qualify guys to get in for at least that event.
  3. Something is only a distraction if it is allowed to be, all the guys who are participating in the Ryder events are top pros who shouldn't be impacted by this at all. Bryson has for almost two years been on a mission to generate as much clubhead speed as possible, I would never be surprised if he decided to compete in long drive during his off-weeks from PGA Tour obligations or schedule. Quite frankly, the PGA Tour could use some of the "fun side" of golf incorporated into it's schedule. For example, how about a 1-week all-star break in the middle of the season where there can be players voted in and then also selected for events like long drive or skills challenges. The PGA Tour needs more Bryson Dechambeau type players.
  4. 1. Howell, MI2. 2.4 Index3. Macgregor JNP Forged4. Right Hand5. I want to review these irons because I firmly believe I will provide amazingly useful feedback to the community. I love trying out new equipment and my attention to detail will get put to great use here. Plus, everyone will get the added bonus of seeing a modern set of forged get compared to my current gamers which are circa 1991.6. Yes for sure! I'll be bringing my A-Game to the testing process here. Whether it's photo, video, or launch monitor I'll give the community what they need to be well informed about this product and company.
  5. This beauty needs a new home. Just needs a grip when you get it, does not come with a headcover. $175 Shipped Photos.zip
  6. What I meant by stating that the regular season doesn't matter, is that what you did doesn't and shouldn't help you, but the FedEx Cup allows for that which is frustrating. Guys who can skip the first/second event or get cut from the first but still move on is laughable.
  7. What about the following scenario for a fix to the current FedEx playoffs system (yes it is actually broken.....seriously who gets strokes spotted to them in a pro event) Top 125 still get in for the first playoff event, only instead of the entire field playing against each other we break it down into 5 Brackets of 25 players each. The brackets would be seeded in a numerical pattern to allow for the most equitable positioning in the brackets. So I would have brackets something like this: B1: 1,10,14,18,22,26,35,39,43,47,51,60,64,68,72,76,85,89,93,97,101,110,114,118,122 B2: 2,6,15,19,23,27,31,40,44,48,52,56,65,69,73,77,81,90,94,98,102,106,115,119,123 B3: 3,7,11,20,24,28,32,36,45,49,53,57,61,70,74,78,82,86,95,99,103,107,111,120,124 B4: 4,8,12,16,25,29,33,37,41,50,54,58,62,66,75,79,83,87,91,100,104,108,112,116,125 B5: 5,9,13,17,21,30,34,38,42,46,55,59,63,67,71,80,84,88,92,96,105,109,113,117,121 Event 1 (The Northern Trust) Players will compete against the other 24 in their bracket for being able to move on, so after 36-holes if two players were tied there would be a sudden-death playoff to determine who got to move on to the weekend. The 36-hole cut for the first event would be exactly 70 players, 14 from each bracket. Event 2 (BMW Championship) Players in from each bracket compete against each other for 72-holes no cut. The six best scores from each bracket move to Tour Championship, if there are ties at the end then we'd have sudden death playoff for who moves on. Event 3 (Tour Championship) The remaining 30 players tee it up but we don't any strokes offset, this is straight up. Winner takes all. * We eliminate guys "getting a pass" on not performing well during a week and still getting to move on * We eliminate spotting guys strokes in the tour championship * You gotta earn it for three straight weeks * And just like in the major team sports, what you did in the regular season doesn't grant you any playoff perks. So the whole cumulative point thing can get thrown out, none of that mid-tournament player ranking calculation stuff.
  8. It's crazy to think that the FedEx Cup has been around for 15 years now. It's gone through a few different iterations and point system changes, but at this point I have to say I am still unimpressed by this endeavor. Golf doesn't have a "world championship" like the team sports do (IE Stanley Cup) requiring playoffs to determine who the best team of the year is. And given the fact that guys can skip an event or miss a cut and still advance is just laughable. Does the PGA Tour actually "need" to have playoffs or would it be better to just go back to the good ole "money list".
  9. Why not utilize match play style? Or utilize brackets like in other sports? I love how the WGC match play operates. Why not three weeks of that? Top 128 keep their cards and the field size is 128, 64, 32. Pure stroke play should never determine a champion in these playoffs. Give me the best players actually competing against each other heads up like other sports. You shouldn't be able to advance to the next week of playoffs without actually earning it. I don't feel bad for anyone not advancing due to poor play or injury. The playoffs are strictly a money game for the top regular season point getters, there is no actual prestige to "winning the FedEx Cup" at this point in time. The money order of merit would be a a better way to accurately reflect things, I wish they would go back to that.
  10. Winning a major with four different golf swings in three different decades is pretty impressive.
  11. Well I'm not "young" like I used to be LOL. I'm in my late 30s but really active and high heat tolerance. I feel way better from a flexibility, tempo, and game perspective when the weather is hotter.
  12. Really interesting to think about how much humidity can have an impact on the "real feel" of temperature just like wind chill. Personally I love hot humid weather and getting in a good sweat.
  13. All these have cult following status. Which would you game in this modern world?
  14. Actually here yah go just found details: https://www.golfclubspec.com/shaft_results.php?shaft_id=36
  15. This is going back a while, but I played it in college with a Nike Ignite 460. I loved it, a bit softer than a lot of shafts at the time but it was solid. I believe mid flex point.
