  1. It’s a perfect example of how there’s no standard in the industry. Also this is why you sometimes see the torque or other specs listed on their page be different from the manufacturer. They do their own testing and as we know each manufacturer tests torque and stuff differently
  2. Height especially to high is a perception issue and most people don’t hit it high enough. With that there’s several variables that go along with it. The information needed to answer the question is peak height, launch angle, descent or land angle depending on the launch monitor, ball speed. angle of attack. Without that information it’s all a guess by anyone on whether you are hitting to high and losing distance as a result of the height and if a lower spin and launch shaft would change anything. The amount of spin and height a shaft changes isn’t as significant and many think
  3. Exactly. I don’t recall anyone complaining when caddies were allowed to start wearing shorts, Tiger made mock turtlenecks a thing and when he revived them they sold out again. Both tours allow the players to wear shorts in certain situations. Times change and people and entities have to be willing to change too. are there things in various sports or other areas of life where they cross the line? For sure and that line is probably different for each person. An athletic looking hoodie that matches the players athletic apparel and shoes to me looks fine. Justin Thomas wore one that was le
  4. From my understanding St Andrews allows jeans so if someone wants to wear them at courses that allow it who cares. Same with the hoodie. Way back in the day people were “dressed” up everyday for normal day activities and on course attire matched that time. Here we are well into the 2000s and style and everyday wear has changed. Golf attire has changed with the improvement in clothing materials and in matching the every day dress. Unless the “traditionalist” is dressing like Payne Stewart or going a step further and wearing shirt and tie get over the changing times. Just like wit
  5. The Pxg price for the proto probably won’t change if you waited til next year. the gen2 was a nice improvement over the gen1 which their entire wood and hybrid were not that good and the reps have said so as well. The proto is their best release from the few people I talked to that hit it.
  6. The proforce unless it’s the 8f4 or 5 is going to be a mid flight launch. the t1100 is a very stiff shaft that is designed to be a low launch and low sping shaft the feel for many is going to be different based on their design.
  7. That’s so true and those who know what they know and listen to what they don’t are kind of rare
  8. For me having been a high cap with no knowledge on gear or swing took want most better players said as true. As I got more serious and started learning about both topics I realized that not everything the said was actually true. I know both high and low caps both on forums and thru friendships and there are smart golfers in both groups. i do think lower caps have a tendency to not give as much credit that’s due to some mid-high caps. It’s too broad a stroke imo to say one side knows more than others and i tend to look at what a persons saying more so than what their skill level is be
  9. I game my circle t putters and if/when I buy another it will get gamed. Same goes for my scotty cameron headcovers most have been used already for at least one round
  10. Stableford is a simple way to do things for betting. The group I play some of rounds with that I’ve been playing with since I started golf used to do random draw pairings after the round. They’ve been using stableford for the last 5 or 6 years and it’s a lot simpler and for the most part it’s pretty even competition weekly. the not having a handicap thing makes it hard and it’s almost a guessing game as to what cap to use for them. yardage can play differently from course to course. One of the courses I’ve played this year from 6000 is harder than a couple courses I play at 6500
  11. Why not just use course handicap. Every group I have played modified stableford with uses course hdcp to determine the number of strokes needed by each player. With the new handicap system is works great for situations with people playing different tees in the same group
  12. They weren’t selling a lot of tmb irons sets. The long irons were the most popular and that’s why the shift to just the utility irons now
  13. I don’t monkey around with the settings once I get it set. If I get fit whatever the fitter sets is what I set it at when I order it. with the sim max I blind bought it and played with settings based on what I saw on the range and then tweaked it after some course time and it hasn’t moved since
  14. Yeah the guy was asking some dumb questions. I liked it just for listening to dj talk about his approach to hitting the shots
  15. Taylormade posted a video on YouTube today with their players hitting wedges and they talk to DJ during this and talks about his preferred distance and how he approaches different distances.
  16. Free from PXG with their master fitter, bid schedule fitting at local course. Free from TM, Ping And Titleist at demo days at local driving range. satisfied with all the fittings except g410 driver one. paid for pga superstore tour van fitting In Orlando $99 and satisfied with the full bag fitting
  17. They own a lot of other businesses that aren’t equipment that get them that large over all value. MGS reported on their various businesses and how much they contribute to the company value
  18. That is surprising to an extent but at the same time I didn’t think they would be able to get them sorted out in the first iteration of their upgrades and such.
  19. I play with a guy pretty regularly that comments on every shot good or bad. Doesn’t affect me and I’ve never played with a random person that made any comments that I would even come close to getting under my skin
  20. He’s slowly becoming the new face of the European side. Hes half way to Sergios pga tour wins And has a total of 11 wins between PGA and Euro tour.
  21. If all the urethane balls perform about the same find the one that works best for you around the greens and with partial shots
  22. Links at ivy ridge a course I play when I’m in buffalo area the course record was set by DJ.
  23. The ball probably has a role in it and it’s something I’ve heard shaft designers talk about regarding what they have to do to match driver heads from the various brands. The golf ball has been designed to fly straighter and have less spin than years ago.
