15:46 - Taylormade continues their strong naming conventions with the SIM Driver
23:41 - PXG's Gen 3 Irons: How do they justify that price tag?
33:09 - Mizuno's first putters in the US, the M-Craft line
37:21 - Odyssey's Triple Track Putter lines up nicely with the similarly striped ball
42:25 - A 38° Pitching Wedge? It's real, but we can't say who it's from yet...

Just listened to Epi 28. Great talk. Miranda is a natural fit.

The PXG discussion was interesting. I went in to their retail shop in Bellevue, WA over the holidays and hit the 0211 irons (only because they were ON SALE - $125/club). Given that I had just purchased Hot Metals in September and Hogan Ft. Worth Blacks in December, I wasn't really a customer, but I can't ignore a sale. They 0211 irons weren't anything special. I didn't hit the 0311 irons in case they were, 'cause they were NOT on sale. I don't hate PXG for their market and price point, but they are having the opposite effect on irons (and, I fear, golf generally) than what Dean Snell has created in the golf ball market. PXG creates another excuse for the big 3 (or is it 4 or 5) to jack prices up. It is a bit like the "loft war", with a race to change expectations of what a reasonable price is or what a number on a club means.

FWIW, I have never owned Mizuno or Hogan irons before because I didn't think my game was worthy of either. News Flash! Mizunos and Hogans are not just for low handicappers. I brought the Hogans to New Zealand for our winter (their summer) and hit them yesterday. They are traditionally lofted but are at least a club longer (maybe more) than the Cleveland HB3s I have had here for 8 years or so. The Mizunos are still at home in Friday Harbor, WA. They are also at least a club longer. But the Hot Metal 7 iron is lofted at 30 degrees. The Hogan 7 iron is 34 degrees. For my testing so far, it looks like both go about the same distance. And, in addition to longer, they both fly higher than the old Clevelands. And I have discovered I can actually hit them, even the Hogan Ft. Worth Blacks that are forged blades. Technology is a very, very good thing.

If you don't' see any difference between here and Sam...then well now...😛😛 

But I found her as a nice addition.  It adds a different dynamic, She may not have the golf knowledge that the others have, but I think as she gets more comfortable with the flow she'll be able to take the opportunity to maybe ask questions about something when Tony starts going deep in the woods.
