Did Rory sign with Callaway? He did go back to the odyssey putter, but that is not saying much. He did have taylor made wedges in play at the south africa open? But if he has a ball contract with callaway that would cancel that idea. Maybe ping, or srixon, Nickent? The Callaway Hat was on before the South Arica Open, was that a sign? He was not able to truly come to a permanent set of Adams clubs all year except the A3's he had at the beginning. Honestly I do not understand why he changed from nike. He just a had a banner year. I am going to call Adams tomorrow to get the scoop, if they even let the cat out of the bag!!!! :rolleyes:

You can't lay the smacktalk down about Tiger and expect to come out with your nads in one piece (or two :rolleyes: )

I didn't know that major PGA pros ever signed one year contracts with equipment companies.

 

In today's economic climate, this could be the norm for an average type player like Rory.

He did test some callaway irons and is trying some taylor made wedges, but as far as wedges go he always plays with vokey and he has always played odyssey putter as well, when we play at home. But what he has chosen to do is still up in air as far as I know. I guess we will see this week in hawaii. As far as the putter I have seen him with a 2.5 newport tri. insert CT. So I dont know who he will end up with, I just hope he has a good 09.

Dont forget the Macgregor DCT Sunset putter that he almost won with last season. I think he may have tried more putters than any other piece of equipment last year.

Is he still gaming the Grace? That would be awesome!

He was gaming a Odyssey black series #9 in South Africa for the Nedbank, Dunhill and South African Open! I do not think he has used the sunset since Texas!

At the Players Championship back in '07, he said Tiger Woods was "more beatable than ever". Then at the end of that year at the Target World Challenge, he withdrew before the final round. http://sports.espn.go.com/golf/news/story?id=3157217

Maybe there's more...

 

I think it's more just that he doesn't care what the media thinks or how it construes anything he says, so he comes off sounding pretty arrogant to a lot of people.

Sorry for being clueless here... BUT what exactly did he do to be hated so much? I always hear people talking badly about him but no idea why.

 

:offtopic2:

 

You'll probably hear a few different stories with the highlights of his cocky and sometimes brash comments or actions toward his opponents (mainly Tiger...listed in a post above). There was an incident a few years back with Ben Crane where Rory got a bit impatient with Ben's slow pace after they were given a warning...he promptly walked to the green after hitting his approach shot, finished out the hole and walked to the next tee box while he left Crane in fairway. There is a point to be made about slow play, but his actions were a bit out of line IMO.

 

Rory and Crane Slow Play Incident

 

As it is...I think he rubs people (other players, media, fans) the wrong way...his words and actions have become a testiment to his personality and I don't think many people are impressed with that aspect of his game.

He does donate lots of money to soldiers and their families in a country where he wasn't born and didn't move to until college. That alone makes me like him. I dislike his on course antics but not enough of a reason to hate him and the money he raises for US troops makes me think he's a good guy away from the course.

The guy in unlikeable .. in any other sport someone would have knocked him on his a** already. Hope he finds no contract ..I certainly won't buy any clubs from a manufacturer who employs him.

 

 

He is not that unlikable because I like him as a player and I know many others who like him as a player too.

 

He speaks his mind and people dont like it. Think about this; how many times have you played with someone who was way too slow and it just got on your nerves to the point where you and your buddy(ies) wanted to just leave? It has happen to all of us before and instead of talking about him BEHIND HIS BACK he just walked away and played on. Im not saying it right, but its pretty Fcuking (spelled like that on purpose) annoying!!!

 

I like Rory and I WOULD buy clubs he plays... Many people have and many people will continue!!
