One of the areas we are going to strive to bring more information to the forum in the new year will be news from all the tours, both equipment news and anything else that we think is interesting or noteworthy. But since most of us are here because we are equipment nerds, we'll try and focus on that mainly. And I want to bring you more than just a simple WITB posting after a tour event, sure we have have that as well, but the goal is to go a bit deeper and provide more info than you'd normally see. As such, we've reached out to all the OEM's to supply us with any tour news they have on a regular basis. In full disclose for simplicity sake many times, it will be just publishing a press release they have sent out. Some OEM's may be better at this than others, so we just want to make it understood, it's not favoring any particular company but just an effort to provide the forum with as much info as you care to see from each company on it's equipment news/counts for the week. So with the PGA Tour on break until January, we have some info from the European and Japan Tours provided by Titleist. Quite honestly, I found some of this info surprising as well as interesting. I always knew they dominated the ball market on tour, but the numbers are pretty eye opening, as well as it's performance in the club counts as well. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on this an all other info we post here going forward. I know most of us that are avid golfers don't necessarily make our club/ball purchasing decisions based on tour usage, but if nothing else, it'll make for some good conversation. edit: Sorry for the PDF I couldn't get it to save as a Pic for some reason. Titleist Tour Counts Week of Nov 25.txt Adding another count chart. I found two things interesting on this one. 2018COUNTS.pdf 1) On the PGA Tour Bridgestone has only 3% of the ball share, but yet had 13% of PGA Tour wins on the season. I guess you could call that the Bryson effect with a little help from Tiger. 2) Also the Australasian Tour Titleist had 100% of the wins. There was some presences from the other companies in play, but all 13 victories went to Titleist.
The Euro Tour has announced Craig Connelly (Martin Kymer's caddie) as the 2014 Caddie of the Year. For me, this seems like it'd be a really tough decision to make regarding who deserves this award. Surely it depends a lot on how the Pro performs, and having a pro who is naturally calm and not making public outbursts regarding the Caddie advice (even when it may not have been the Caddie's fault) - I don't think I have to give any examples... Ahem, Bubba...do you to l it'd be harder to Caddie for the best in the world (increased scrutiny, etc) or Joe Average Tour player?
