  1. I meant more along the lines of when/if this ever happens or if pros continue to expand on distance do you think they will alter equipment or finally admit they need to hold events at longer courses? If the PGA cares about the integrity of the game they need to move to new/longer courses. Personally, if a pro scores -10 or below I believe the course has no business holding a pro tournament. (Yes I’m including Augusta, -20 should be an embarrassment to a course which likes to boast how good it is). I wish the PGA treated these venues as other sports do. When they become outdated and i

  3. I saw an interview today where Bryson said eventually there would be a 7ft golfer swinging it as fast as him that will make him irrelevant and it got me thinking...he’s right; then what’s the tours excuse gonna be? Eventually there’s gonna be an elite golfer tall enough that’s gonna play 48” as their standard length and theyre gonna carry it 375+ as their stock yardage. Are they still gonna cry for lesser equipment or acknowledge they need longer venues? Food for thought.
  4. I’m an avid tennis player and caught the golf bug hardcore over the last year. From playing so much tennis, I have gravitated towards the gp tour wrap as they somewhat resemble the feel of an over grip on a racquet. Has anyone else had this experience or have any recommendations on what other grips to try for the same kind of feeling?
  5. I still say a driver is the worst value. $500+ for one club is a horrible value. When you look at used drivers years old is maybe 10-15yards worth $400 extra dollars. No way.

    T100 for the win

    I am super closer to buying either the MP20 MMC or the JPX Tour and the only thing stopping me and how appealing the T100 is but the bag appeal is definitely holding me back.
  7. I think this is a little unfair. I’m sure they have different teams working on different models. I think Titleist released 6 iron sets in 2019 (T100-400, 620 MB/CB) and no one would say they didn’t put their full attention on them.
  8. The biggest selling point of the HMB is not that it’s hollow body, it’s that it looks exactly like a blade. It will never go to the JPX line. Although I get what you’re saying. I think changing the name away from Hot Metal (hot metal is synonymous with the JPX) to something more serious like Hollow Muscle Back HMB, Hollow Tour Blade HTB, etc; might give it a little more respect amongst the purists and get more to switch.
  9. In the next 5-10 years jumbo to jumbomax size will be the norm. The logic as to why they’re better is there it’s just such a far cry from what everyone is used to to switch cold turkey.
  10. I’ll be getting a set of MP-22s when they’re released. I tried my friends MP-4s and made the horrible mistake of nutting one and I’ve hated myself ever since trying to recreate that feeling with my clubs.
  11. I’m just holding out hope the 2021 versions aren’t as chunky.
  12. PXG is Land Rover. Quality with varying price ranges. Cheaper models to get you into the brand but the “good stuff” is priced ridiculously higher so that the average person can’t afford it. Then owning it becomes a status symbol even though there are several comparable things from other brands at 1/3-1/2 the price.
  13. I’m not hating on the elevate tour as a shaft, I’m hating on the principle and business model. Even their $650 blade has the elevate as the stock shaft. If you polled 100 blade users how many play the elevate... maybe 1 or 2? They do this because most people will pay the extra $400 upcharge for the set. I guarantee if Titleist,TM, Mizuno, etc made the stock shaft the elevate on every single iron set they made and then made every shaft a minimum $40 per/club upgrade every consumer would lose their minds and the first thought wouldn’t be “what’s wrong with the elevate”.
  14. Agreed for the most part. And it’s not like his irons/wedges are directly off the shelf either. But let’s say it is the equipment, this is the bed Rory made. He could have went as Brooks did and played whatever he wanted to focus on the best to win with but he chose the payday (rightfully so in every respect) to join TM.
