PXG paid her $14.5 million when she joined them 

Not surprised....Tina's GREED.🤣

$14.5M NZ or $10M US for a 5 year contract.

No wonder Cally bailed and didn't want to keep pace.

 

I guess now that Parsons is shilling his 0211 DC's for only $77 US....he's no longer running the profit level %ages he once was....and Tina won't settle for 2nd fiddle....BYE BYE!

KABOOM BABY!

 

I'm thinking of buying the DC's but need to see them 1st to make sure they are too shovel like.

Do you have a set of the ST's...what shaft do you have?

The ST's are GORGEOUS from the pictures.

 

I will hopefully head to Shaughnessy here in the spring...they have a PXG fitting studio....hit some clubs in the sim...and then take the short-list clubs to the range to see how the heads interact with grass....and to see the REAL ball flight.

 

Maybe a combo set of DC's & ST's.

The 0211's are really a steal at their current prices...who knows who long that will last....but PXG is known for dynamic pricing.

Considering the reduction of the number of equipment deals over the past few years on all tours, why are people assuming Lydia is going to have an equipment deal?

Elevate tours. Don’t think the lofts match up to combo plus the are crazy easy to hit for a blade. Sorry to derail but I liked that Lydia was on pxg. Hate everyone else on there ha

1) With a global shortage on components...not much choice for stock shafts w/o paying for an up charge....but they also have shortages on up charge options too.

I've demo'd the Elevate Tours....I don't mind them....I currently play the KBS Tour 120 gm stiffs....I'm finding them just a tad stout in my old age....but finding some other lighter shafts a tad soft.

A guy at the range the other day let me hit a Recoil 110 F4....it was sweet....tons of shock absorption and quite a stable shaft.

 

2) Yes....would need some huge loft adjustments to transition a combo set from the ST's to DC's.....and yes....I've read many many golfers say how easy the ST's are to hit for a blade....I'll have to see for myself.

 

3) Agree....I lot of pros I don't like in the PXG tour stable.

I don't like Zach, Top 5, Dahmen, Christina Kim, Gary Player.

I see that PXG just dumped POSER Pat Perez.

 

I do like Lang, Boutier, O'Toole, Piller, J. Song, Khang.

I noticed Haley Moore is not longer on staff.

Because Tina LOVES money and agents get paid on endorsements....so I don't see Lydia being a equipment free agent for a long time.

 

Agree....fewer good endorsements on all tours and/or it's taking longer for many pros to sign up for an attractive deal.

So her agent is going to have to do like most of the agents that have members of the LPGA have to do, work hard to find sponsors outside of the equipment area. The free spending of equipment manufacturers is over so I would not automatically expect her to have an equipment deal.

I'm not disagreeing that OEM's are more prudent in their sponsorship spends.

 

Nothing is certain....it make take some time...but I expect Lydia to sign a OEM club deal(s) at some point in time....maybe not immediately.

Who knows whether it will be lucrative or not.

Srixon would be cool... they went big on Koepka, why not add a big LPGA name now?  

 

I liked LK with PXG, I thought she looked badass in the all black.  IDK why.

Surprised KBong that you don’t like Dahmen…no judgement…one of the better humans out there…cancer story is pretty cool

Just don't care for him.

I just did a Google.

I was not aware he had cancer.

 

Also found out he won twice on the Cdn tour.....including a win here in Vancouver....the PC Financial Open....likely at Point Grey???

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
