  1. I ended up mucking about with a Callaway Magma. I was quite interested in how it performed against a Supersoft. I wonder if the way around all the IP but to still maintain the one set of rules, reduce distance... increase the minimum ball size. Easier to hit, but increased size therefore increase wind resistance so cant hit as far, and increase spin (???), but Bridgestone can still use all their patents.
  2. To act as the negative, Lou's data (75% of second shots on Par 4s 174y or less) means Bryson is hitting PW or less (Looking at stock distances image from Golf TV . Par 4s tend to be at least half of golf holes. Are we happy with the wedge in on 7 holes, plus maybe the par 3s? So we are looking at a long iron on maybe 5 holes. From that perspective, are we happy with those numbers? Or is that the point where 'golf becomes boring'?
  3. I'm surprised that it wasn't mentioned about all the legal... Legal-ness that would go down if this happened, particularly in the lawsuit happy America. Ball manufacturers would have a case. Who would want to even manufacture the 'pro' ball when no-one else would want to buy it. Will the PGA Tour order their own ball from Taiwan? Tour staff for ball companies would have a case for loss of income, patents etc. DeShamBo and McIllroy would have a case because it affects them more than it does Mr 275y Average (Total yards lost). I would still think that the best approach (If we don't just 'grow the grass,' which is the easiest solution to even try as mentioned) would be to decrease the maximum driver head size. I really hate the idea of limiting technology. I'm sure there's three or four contradictions in what I said that could be picked up on! I'm thinking of one of my more local courses... Par 68, 6 par 3's. Great track. Courses already turn Par 5s into 4s, why not 4s into threes? Or add a Par 3, build a new tee for the tournament and have a 700m par 5. Everyone still has to play the same course.
  4. Having this argument with my dad. Love to hear other thoughts. Our course has reopened, first game Saturday. I am intending to only being my irons, which will be a 3i To LW one length. No driver, no fairways, which I normally play. Reason being, even though I've been practicing some, online lessons, two swing modifications, I'm going to be rusty as an old windmill. With irons, the damage won't be as bad, but neither will I be able to get anywhere near to all the hole in 2 like I would normally. So expecting not a great score, and will record a high handicap round. Because I'm handicapping myself with choice of clubs, am I cheating the handicap system? (Because playing on Saturday, have to enter the comp, or no game, so can't argue don't enter the comp and can't play). Edit: We're not worried per say, but if there was a club championship coming up and it looked like my handicap may go out, would your opinion be any different? Not that the club championship at any serious level should be anything but gross stroke...
  5. I'm curious if the smallest standard deviations from the ball test last year, especially with the compression and shot area, are also reflective of quality this year.
  6. Are you saying the reigning Master Champion is a has been?
  7. I was happy with the service and products with https://www.clubstamping.com/, only problem is I've found it super hard to actually make a consistent stamp. I'm actually thinking next time I want something stamped, I'll be getting an expert to do it. The textas they supply are very good. I've used them to paint my clubs and the fill is still there on the sole of my putter and rear of wedges, which I figure are the hardest wearing parts where I've painted.
  8. Is anyone able to explain why it's okay that there is the steel part that the fibreglass sleeve goes over? I would have thought that there was a glaring weak spot for the torque. Really would have thought it to be a fibreglass rod also, just an adapter to the .355 and .370 shafts.
  9. 1) I'd like to see the market leader (Titleist) ball lab results released first. Especially when everyone could argue have the best QA. 2) Follow up ball lab: What method best aligns a (misshapen) ball. The Epsom salts (Get my boy Bryson onto it), the Check- Go ball spinning machine, balancing arm/ ramp. 3) I'd love to ask Bridgestone or Srixon (Those that Tony is cursing trying to find the seam) for a box of ball where the seam is more visible and do a 2019 ball test. See thw difference there.
  10. Well thanks to all you buggers in this thread, you just convinced me to buy one. At least I'll look cool three putting.
  11. Got 'given' a shop soiled F-Max Superlite head to play around with, and decided to weigh it, and was quite disappointed in the 'super light' head. So essentially we make a super light head by just removing the hosel!
  12. Used to rock a 7W when I started to actually get into golf, replacing a 3Hy. Loved it. Had the height characteristics, and didn't hook it (nearly as often) as the hybrid or iron. Hit it the same distance, just flight characteristics were different. A good video you might want to watch from the boys at TXG.
  13. The missus loves hers - She has an X-Tank. There isn't much point of her putting another long club in her bag, but the chipper gives her confidence and makes her happier on the course. Is it a crutch for someone who isn't very good? Sure. But we're not professionals. I use it out on the course every now and again for the fun of it. And the are fun.
  14. Starting to eye off new driver. Cobra have been pushing their machine milled narrative as the way to go. Yet the 2020 F-Max Airspeed is using their E9 face. Anyone know why? Weight? Structure support required for milled is heavier? Thanks!
  15. I'm experimenting with Forged TEC at the moment (Or when lockdown is over), I want to see if I can improve my ball striking so that when I got back to the F8s I'll be ahead. I wonder if the GIs are compensating for a bad swing too much.
  16. I would hope for the next 'The Match' it would be a fourball match play, or fourball ambrose, listen in on the strategies. It was much better with the Japanese skins game, watching greats go for high risk shots. Who would you pair with Tiger and Phil? I'd be looking DeChambeau and... Bubba. Mayhem on the Phil/ Watson side!
  17. Bridgestone and Titleist #1 and #2... Who would get #3? I'd be tipping Srixon.
  18. 33, Victoria Australia 101mph Average (Gym it up daily outside of COVID with a focus on strength not speed, but also like the beers too much). Affirmation. Been after an after work fitness activity, pilates was boring as batshit, so looking for something else.
  19. I'd like to see manufacturers FLO/ Pure their shafts before sending out (Or better yet, before putting on the decals so label goes up) as part of their quality control process. Any chance of this becoming a standard part of the manufacturing process?
  20. Where would you be putting these weights? Tape is able to be put on th extreme (Outside) whereas if you're using tungsten tip weights, it'd raise the CoG of the club head, lower launch and more spin.
  21. I would like to see a subscriber's choice for the 2020 data. Start by creating a poll. Each person gets *5* votes, or rank the list most important to least important. The list is each of your categories, or sets of categories - total distance, smash factor, flight, but might want to group low launch with high spin, or classify the average of 2000rpm tO 2500rpm as low spin. Use that data to weight the data to what the community would rate the best overall. Would nearly guarantee its the longest driver, but it might be tightest dispersion!
  22. I was following him on Twitch yesterday, said he would like to get as big as The Rock, as long as he can (And he thinks he could) maintain the flexibility.
  23. DeChambeau. Big guns overtake the course and he's becoming less likely to have that one bad round. Putting on the up.
  24. Most Wanted Driver Testing vs... I'd like to know what the most successful driver on Tour, by most wins, of all time would be. 2018/19 was apparently the M5. Golf Digest did a square off a few years back that said 'the greatest driver's was Callaway Great Big Bertha, but that isn't data driven. Anyone have an idea of what it would be? I'd love for it to be a persimmon driver!
