  1. The Tour Depatment at TaylorMade provided some changes in the bags of it's staffers this week. Most due to the higher elevation they are playing at. Several SIM Max 19* rescues in the bag. As 3 wood and 5 woods were likely going to TEAM TAYLORMADE NEW PRODUCTS/SWITCHES THIS WEEK: Dustin Johnson: P790 3 iron Rory McIlroy: SIM Max Rescue 19.0 (back in after using 19.0 FW last week at Riv), Spider X (back to 34” length and added a new grip Lamkin Sink Fit Skinny Black, MG2 52° Collin Morikawa: SIM Max Rescue 19.0, Spider S (currently ranked 142 in SG:Putting, so looking for something right now Jon Rahm: SIM 19.0 FW NOTABLES (* Free agent) Brandt Snedeker: SIM Max 9.0 Paul Casey: Sim Max Rescue 19.0 Tyrell Hatton: SIM Max 15.0 Jazz Janewattananond: SIM Max 15.0
  2. I think picking one ball that fits you and staying with it every round benefits you more than choosing one set of clubs and sticking with them!
  3. I'm 6'4' and "normal" length arms for my height, 36" inch dress shirt sleeves. At TPI in the fall I was fit into standard length T300, and we literally tried everything from 1/2 over to 1/4 inch short. Glenn said, it's not about your wrist to floor measurement standing straight up, as nobody hits a shot in that position. It's about your position at impact. So far with 9 holes in, Im very happy with how the fit and feel.
  4. yeah, saw that one go up and will watch it as well. The videos versions are on the TM site and then if you just want the podcast they are on all the usual places.
  5. I think a lot of people will enjoy this podcast/interview with DJ done by Paul Trottie from the TaylorMade Tour Van. Everyone gives DJ a hard time for being low key and not very enthusiastic in his post round interviews. Here he really opens up a bit more, and you find out he's just an equipment nerd like most of us. It was fun to hear his thoughts on putters and the Truss in particular...you'll have to listen yourself to find out what he thinks. https://www.taylormadegolf.com/podcasts/20811-on-course-quirks-and-giving-back-to-those-in-need-with-dustin-johnson.html?lang=default

    2020 Ball test?

    TP5 Pix has technology has an alignment feature in it. Truvis has no alignment technology. It's main purpose was to make the ball visually appear larger at address and to be easier to follow the flight.
  7. I'll start, today I saw a golfer at our course wearing the hard-case to his rangefinder, strapped through his belt on his front hip. Think tourist walking through NY City with the big phone or camera case strapped on to hold his camera. I can imagine he was pretty much a quick draw mcgraw in getting that range finder out to shoot a distance! But one good thing, he doesn't have to worry about leaving his rangefinder in the golf cart
  8. To borrow the phrase from the great Jack Buck and put it into golf course sightings. What is the strangest thing you've seen on a golf course, something someone did, something they wore or some device they used...etc.
  9. Thanks, me as well. Right now other than driver, the only bag I have. Pretty much as listed in my signature. TS1 Driver SIM 5 Wood G410 7 & 9 Wood G410 hybrid 5 iron T300 6-GW SM7 wedges Hopefully a Spider X putter if it comes in by then, otherwise the SC Phantom 5.5

    2020 Ball test?

    This is certainly no official word, just my personal thoughts. But I don't think this is a test that merits being done every year. Most of the premium balls have two year life cycles, ProV, Srixon Z Star, TP5/X and yes even though Bridgestone has a new ball out and Callaway is working to improve the Chrome Soft model, it's an awfully big undertaking to do each year when the majority of balls that people will be interested in haven't changed. Unlike the Most Wanted testing which is done on site at MGS, the ball testing was done out of state at a facility that had a robot and range that could accommodate the parameters of the test. I'm sure it was a very expensive and time consuming effort.
  11. Ha. Good one. Yeah I know what you mean. But I have twice been fit into a low spin head the 917D3 and Epic Flash Sub Zero Due to my angle of attack and putting a lot of natural spin on it. Could I play it. Sure. Its just not as high or as Consistent as the TS1, which for us old coots is like a pig finding a 3 foot deep mud pen in the middle of the desert.
  12. Yep, I have heard even the MAX head is lower spin compared to some other mainstream drivers out there. I'll give it some more time, I have hit one or two very good drives with it, but if my life depended on having to hit a fairway...the TS1 would no doubt get the call.
  13. I have the 9.5 but have it lofted up 1.5. Definitely seeing a low flight and fighting a low right. I ordered it 1/2 short and requested the SW still to be D2, not sure if it came in at that or not, don't have the ability to measure. Could be something in that combo that isn't a good "fit" for me. Played the TS1 during the round, and hit it really well. So it can't be just the swing.
  14. I'm struggling with my SIM Max in the early going. Right now it's strictly a backup to the TS1, which is just soooo good! But the few times, I've taken it out and hit shots with it on the course, it's been very inconsistent. and mostly bad.
  15. Thanks. Felt strange and good at the same time. Definitely the longest layoff I've ever had from golf. Even longer than after my double knee replacement!
  16. Got on course today for the first time since late October, got out with the new T300. Bit of rust on the first hole, but bounced back nicely with the first birdie of the year on the 2nd hole. 128 yard par 3, 9 iron to about 12 feet left of the hole, and rolled the putt in Ended up with a 42 for 9 holes, and narrowly missed my 2nd birdie of the year on the par 5 7th. Overall was pretty happy with the way the irons went, a few lose drives. Putter was pretty solid as well. Guess I'll keep the irons for a couple weeks
  17. Michael Breed was saying that exact thing this morning on his show and you're right.
  18. Locker Rooms sure have changed since our days haven't they!
  19. She just started sending texts about 6 months ago, but that is pretty much limited to me, her sister and one friend who lives in Japan. It's funny to watch her tap out a text on the flip phone. I remember those days and they were very frustrating.
  20. Yeah four wedges, the loft jacking mafia would be crying that he's hurting the top end of his bag...ha Speaking of top end, love seeing a 10.5 loft on his driver, when so many amateurs say they need 8.0 or 8.5.
  21. I wouldn't lie about this. This is actually my Fiance's phone. And the funny thing is, she bought it about 2 years ago when she accidentally washed her Pantech flip phone in her jeans...ha BTW, she has no personal email account, no SM accounts what so ever, and only uses a credit card over the phone with like two or three merchants. We literally live in the house but two different universes....ha
  22. Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott [WITB below] held off a world-class field on a world-class golf course to capture The Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club … Scott closed with a one-under par 70 en route to an 11-under par 273 victory total … The win is the 14th of Scott’s PGA TOUR career and his 31st across the worldwide professional tours … He won the Australian PGA Championship in December … Scottmoved into No. 6 in the Official World Golf Rankings following this week’s win … Scott also won this event in 2005, but that victory was not considered official because it had been shortened to 36 holes after heavy rain soaked the course … This week was considered the strongest regular season field on the PGA TOUR in 13 years, with 9 of the top 10 players in the OWGR teeing it up. WHAT’S IN ADAM SCOTT’S WINNING TITLEIST BAG?: Pro V1golf ball TS4 (10.5) driver and TS2 (16.5) fairway metal 716 T-MB (3) utility and 680 (4-9) irons Vokey Design SM8 pitching (48.10F), gap (52.12F @ 10), sand (56.10S) and lob (60.06K) wedges Scotty Cameron Xperimental long putter JUST THE STATS: Trusting his Titleist equipment from tee-through-green, Scott was among the leaders in just about every major statistical category, including topping the field in Greens in Regulation at a 72.22% (52 of 72) clip … He tied for first in Birdies (21), and was 3rd in SG: Tee to Green (10.357) and SG: Approach to the Green (6.247) … He also recorded and average Driving Distance of 305.2 with his Titleist TS4 driver. >According to Titleist Tour Representative J.J. VanWezenbeeck: “Adam switched to the TS4 driver at the ZoZo Championship due to head size, shape, and improved launch to spin ratios. This week, following a conversation with Adam, he decided to switch to a shaft [Mitsubishi Kurokage S Tini 80] he had previously played for increased stability. He felt the shaft went a little far and he lost head feel. We went on course with lead tape to get the ‘feels’ to match up, then weighted the head to his preferred swing weight after testing.”
