  2. Except Phil knowingly and willingly broke the rules at the US Open when he putted a moving ball, and yet he wasn't DQ'd. The Reed situation should no longer be a story. He was assessed a penalty, which he accepted. That's it. Story's done. All he did was offer his side of the story for context. The video evidence was not nearly as damaging as you are claiming it to be. It's one angle, directly behind, which does not give a clear indication of exactly where the sand he brushed back was in relation to his ball. His explanation was more than plausible. He accepted his penalty regardless of that. There's nothing else to be said about it. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. This is explained already in Tony's piece about them. Bending irons two degrees strong reduces bounce by 2 degrees, which negatively impacts the turf interaction story Titleist was telling with these irons in the first place. They also altered the design of the internal tungsten weights to bring the CG lower, so that they launch higher. This was also addressed in Tony's piece.

  4. Based on Tony's piece, the mold costs for each of the new iron sets in the PXG range is something like half a million per iron. Each of the 3 irons in the range offer up to 9 irons. With 5 molds per iron, at upwards of $10k a mold, that's $450,000 minimum in mold costs. Now obviously they're using the molds more than once but it's also fairly obvious that when a company is putting at least a half million into just shaping one line in their new range of product, that product is going to be expensive. And that doesn't even cover the costs to make the DualCOR materials and the other steps in the manufacturing process, but if old reports from the 2017 P790s and Gen1 PXGs hold any water, it cost TM $14 to make a batch of SpeedFoam, where PXG spent $100 to make a batch of the TPE they used. I'd hazard the DualCOR materials cost more than double that of the TPE. PXG can obviously make clubs at a much cheaper price range, but that's not the point of what they're doing as a company. Bob Parsons got Brad Schweigert and Mike Nicolette to leave Ping with the promise they could make clubs with no financial limitations. They're doing exactly that. It's like arguing that Pagani, or other high-end car manufacturers who handbuild, can make their cars cheaper and at a faster rate with an assembly line. Well, obviously, but that's not the point.

  5. Wasn't a big fan of Rush, but he was a monster behind the kit. He will be missed. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. It won't. He does this every time PXG releases new clubs and then pretends it's not about them. I've called him out about it multiple times and he keeps doing it pretending like he's not referring to PXG, when everybody knows that is exactly who he means.

  7. Ugh, here we go again. "You have to be absolutely off your rocker to pay $3000 for a 7pc set of irons when you can get virtually the same thing for about $800. If the name on the club is more important than the technology within, then maybe you should consider using the other $2200 to see a shrink. [emoji848]" Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. Agreed. As much as others want to grumble about how much their clubs cost, PXG is doing something different and they're not worried about, nor should they be, what people who'd never buy their clubs think. What I'm finding fascinating is the process they're going through with these irons. Five separate molds per iron forging, CNC milled back, robotic polishing and the new weld process. And that's not to mention the two different polymer inserts which they can't inject into the cavity. I'd love to bag a set of these. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  13. Ian did work as a fitter for TaylorMade for awhile but TXG is brand agnostic. They've also had Chris Voshall from Mizuno on the channel on multiple occasions. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Not just any engineer either. Tomo is their senior director of product creation. Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. I don't know, I thought TXG made it quite clear all of last year that the M5, much like the M3 before it, was not a good fit for Matt -- too low spin. And as much as Ian wanted to game the M5, he really struggled to get his ball speeds up with it when compared to the Callaway and Ping drivers he was testing. Maybe it just seems like they're dumping on the M5 more because of how much better the SIM has been for Matt? Sent from my Pixel 2 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
