  1. It's almost like you don't realize that lower lofted clubs trade the kinetic energy imparted as back spin for ball speed. Obviously such a big brained scientist like yourself would never be that stupid
  2. I'll forgot the low hanging fruit in responding with "Bryson clearly cares about our opinion on him being a long hitter since it's his whole marketing schtick lately"... Whoops, guess I didn't, did I?
  3. His iron lofts are ridiculous. Why call it a 4 iron if it's 16*???? "I swing really fast so I need lower lofts to control spin." Bro you play a full bag of clubs with different lofts. Can't say I'm impressed with his iron yardages after learning how strong his lofts are. I get building a bag and gapping clubs top to bottom. It's a smart way to challenge the status quo. Just don't tell me you hit your 4 iron 280. Tell me you hit your 16* iron 280. One is impressive, the other is outlandish.
  4. In! Won't fit my gapping, but I know a junior golfer at my club that'd probably love it.
  5. 1. City and State? Austin, Texas 2. Handicap? +1 3. What King 3D Printed model do you want to test? Fang 4. Current putter? Scotty Newport 2 5. What is the top thing you look for when buying a new putter? Consistency in roll 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes
  6. 1. Austin, TX 2. +0.5 3. 54* original spin milled, 60* zipcore 4. 60* D grind 5. Yes 6. Yes
  7. A flighted 60 is hard to beat. Spin control is the only thing that changes the for me.
  8. If I wasn't so happy with my tsi4, I'd snag that sim2 in a heartbeat
  9. I'm guessing Titleist wants the golden child playing their latest and greatest. Next best thing to that? Making it seem like he does. Either way - win for Titleist brand
  10. Angler is a bit off, ball position is just inside left heel for reference. Things I'm working on: Softer hands at the top Load more onto right leg Get 80%+ weight on lead leg at impact Any obvious things I'm missing? frontish view.mov
  11. Gotta cover their GME position
  12. I used to game an old Wilson staff 2 iron between my Titleist 690mb 3 iron and pt13 3-wood. I'd love to see Wilson return to prominence.
  13. I don't get the idea that long iron blades are hard to hit. If you're generally hitting the ball on the sweet spot, it shouldn't matter what the design is. I love my long irons because they're so easy to work and shape. Easily some of my favorite clubs to hit. The question should really be about optimization though, and that's where I see the use for more forgiving clubs in general. Doesn't mean blades are hard to hit, just a different perspective and goal.
  14. I played mccs in the 2000s, but dropped them for lamkin crossline cord because the lower part would just turn rock hard and slick after a few rounds. Have they improved?
  15. The Saudis love a good gamble. Don't assume they aren't just trying to go all in and make the PGA tour blink.
  16. COR measures the time a ball spends on the club face. The theory being that more time = more energy transfer. There's a common disconnect in these conversations though - while COR and smash factor are related and trend positively, they aren't the same. We've seen tremendous leaps in ball speed in the last 20 years. We've also seen tremendous leaps in optimization to launch conditions. COR and cc'd are both just parts of those equations. BTW, not targeting you. Just an easy entry point here.
  17. Titleist 917f2 15* w/ aldila rogue x stiff Recently (2 months ago) returned from a 12ish year hiatus from golf and copped this from eBay for $50. This thing is an absolute cannon. I've been seeing low 190 ball speed from my tsi4 the last couple weeks, and the 917 is upper 170s all day long. My only gripe is spin off the tee. From the fairway, it's incredible but I really don't need it for that role - here in the Austin area I haven't run into any par 5s that are over 600 and necessitate a 3 wood approach. For now it's been used after a junk ball off the tee on a lon
  18. This is a forum. I'm not going to ask everyone who tipped their shaft why they did it. I've seen enough people tip shafts to know most do it blindly. I was one. I used to tip 80 gram x flex shafts 1.5-2x in 7.5 degree heads because I was swinging 125ish couldn't keep the spin below 3k. I'm in an 8* Tsi4 turned to 7* w/ the proto 2 65tx untipped. Getting 15-18* launch w/ 1500-2200 spin and 186-192 ball. Only way to optimize those numbers is to spend a spend a few hundred in a fitting with likely another couple hundred in a few shaft. Most people won't do that. Most people tha
