    Those look sweet. Can’t wait to hear more about the irons. What are you using for 7,8,9 irons? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    We now have people believing El Tucan extorted $45,000 from Matt Kuchar? [emoji23] Tom Gillis, a former Caddie and PGA Tour player called out Matt Kuchar for being cheap, because Gillis was a former Caddie and knows how hard they work. El Tucan didn’t bring this to a worldwide media attention, Tom Gillis did. I haven’t seen a single comment in this thread say, “Tom Gillis should mind his own damn business”, but we now have blame for El Tucan? [emoji848] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Nice looking wedges there Sluggo. I really like the aesthetics, like you said, a hand crafted look, but without a lot of graphics. I like that the wedge leading had a little radius. I’ve come to realize I like a rounder leading edge since using my old Hogan Sand Iron. I’ve realized that the rounded looking leading edge makes it easy for me to open up the wedge, as it still looks the same when open, where a more straight leading edge makes it harder on my eye. I hope Sub 70 can get a hold on the market. I like that they have a quality forged iron and wedge at a real good price and that they have great customer service as well. And I look forward to hearing more about the wedges in review! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    I can’t remember which article I read it but Kuchar offered something along the lines of $3000 if he makes the cut and an extra $1000 ($4000 total) if he makes the top 10. Seeing as Kuchar hadn’t won in 4 years, El Tucan surely agreed to the arrangement, figuring Kuchar wasn’t gonna win so no need to worry about how much he should get of the $1.3M first place check. And for those that don’t think El Tucan should get as much as a regular Tour caddie, do you think that his insight to the course at least helped Kuchar gain maybe one or two shots over the round? Well he won by one shot which meant a first place check of $1.3M compared to the $777,000 2nd place. Over half a million dollars difference, and he threw El Tucan an extra $1000.

    The universe had other plans in mind for you and your wife, though that doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking. I hope her surgery goes smoothly. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Dream Tour Golf Job

    I spent 10 years on NFL sidelines as a cameraman. It was cool but I don’t think I’d want to do it for 10 months with much of that out in the heat of summer. Let me run some sort of hospitality tent. I’ll schmooze with the big wigs and eat good food all weekend. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    It raises an interesting point. Is it more important that a caddie knows his player and his abilities inside and out, or is it more valuable that the caddie knows every inch of the course and can relay that info to the player while perhaps not knowing the players game as well? Why did Kuchar need a replacement in the first place? And given he hadn’t won on tour in 4 years, how good was his normal caddie anyway? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    So, a fill in caddie has more expenses, but is he worth more? From the obituary of Scottish Caddie James “Tip” Anderson... “The legendary golf caddie James "Tip" Anderson helped American stars Arnold Palmer and Tony Lema to win three Open Championships between them. Born and bred in St Andrews, Tip’s partnership and association with Palmer, which spanned more than 30 years, was renowned. He shared in many of the golfing superstar’s successes over the years after they first joined forces at the centenary Open in 1960; Tip was at Palmer’s side when he won the Open at Birkdale in 1961 and at Troon in 1962. Palmer was unable to make the trip across the Atlantic for the 1964 Open at St Andrews and recommended Tip to his friend Tony "Champagne" Lema. The US golfer had never played the championship Old Course before and had only two practice rounds. However, with Tip at his side, he went on to win the coveted claret jug - and gave the St Andrews caddie much of the credit for his success.” Too bad we don’t have more men like Champagne Tony on the tour today.

    I need to ask, what makes a fill in caddie more valuable then a resort caddie? Both are hired to carry a bag around a golf course for a few days, assisting the player with traversing the course using knowledge they have to help the player they were hired by. Why is a fill in caddie worth so much more than the lowly resort caddie? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    I’ve done a lot of contract day work in television production and when a Producer would call me at the last minute because their regular guy flaked, my price is more, not less. It’s last minute and you need to pay up for me changing my schedule to accommodate you. Kuchar hired a man that undoubtedly knows the course better than every tour caddie there that weekend. One could argue that his knowledge makes him more valuable than Kuchar’s regular caddie and maybe helped him win, which coincidentally was his first in four years. Not a good look in our current climate. Hopefully they will come to an agreement that is fair. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Feast Your Eyes on These Beauties

    Awesome! The website is nearly finished and will be launching next month. As for funds, you won’t need much. My goal is to get quality persimmon clubs into players hands for a fair price. A 3-club set of New Old Stock Orlimars, Driver, 3 wood, and 4 wood, will be less than $100. It will be a great way for someone that’s never played persimmon woods before to experience it without breaking the bank. Once you get hooked, you’ll then maybe want to buy a nice restored classic set. The woods of the late 1940’s through the 1950’s and into the mid 1960’s were really the golden age of the persimmon era. They are works of art. The Hogan irons will of course be much more expensive do to the rarity and the cost to have them rechromed, but they will still cost less than many new iron sets. I’ve had so much fun getting into the classic game, I’m on a mission to share the fun with as many people as possible. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Might be my favorite Hogan design. I played these a bit before I had them rechromed. They will be available for purchase on my new website, but I won’t mind if they don’t sell. I might build them and put them in the bag. [emoji16] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
