I’ve read a couple of different places, the new owners of TaylorMade will look to downsize their Tour footprint toward the end of this season. They are looking at more of a Ping/Titleist model from what’s being discussed. 
 

Bryson and Big Bob “Pigman” Parsons would be a match made in heaven/hell, depending on your perspective. 

I would love to see that. put the PXG model to the test and give Bryson basically free range. Either would turn out amazing or everything to burn

How hard would it have been, during the initial interview, to say something like "You know, I just didn't have it going with the driver today.  Some days it works and I look like a genius, and some days it doesn't work - and you get this.  We all fight the driver some days, and I'm no different."

Can't his handlers coach him on how to respond like this, instead of acting like a 4 year old?

Bryson's problem is that he ignores his "handlers" far too often ... like every time he thinks he know better than they do, which is almost always.

Listening to Michael Breed this morning defending Bryson was painful.  He likes him so much that he's objectivity went out the window.

Yeah, well, Bryson couldn't get away with his childish behavior with Purple Heart recipient Bob Parsons.

Michael Breed has never been objective. He has been toting the company mail (PGA Tour) for two decades.

I sent him an email to call him on it. 

I can tell you this much, if I were in charge of Cobra Golf, after that tantrum, DeChambeau would have not be playing my equipment.

He needs to grow up yet, pretty mature though for his age.

He's 27 years old, about to turn 28. I would agree if he was 18-20 and skipped college to go on tour.

Guessing opinion is based solely on the ad and not based on hearing the mindset behind it, but either way it’s one opinion vs another and saying to spare ones misery is only slightly biased

I listened a few weeks ago. Wasn't impressed. Parson's has made a fortune from schtick. Good for him. It's not for me, bias or no bias!

It's akin to those old Go Daddy commercials Parsons used to put out during the Super Bowl. They target a specific audience. I'm obviously not that audience.

... Yup, you can't help but conjure up Al Czervik as rich, ignorant, obnoxious and a perfect target audience customer. Clearly PXG has plenty of sales so it is working with some golfers. Of course there are those that could not care less about a commercial and base their purchase on looks at address and performance.

I'm at the point where I can't stand Bryson. His vaccine stupidity, not yelling Fore on bad drives, slow play, all of it. Happy to see him lose.

Yep but it is funny to me--- A guy I play with some has a full set of PXGs----- I was doing the pig squeal thing while trouncing his butt with a set of 1980 Mac blades .  Right now he is hot as a match at me.

My bud Bear had bought a set of those irons a couple of years ago when the 0311s had came out. He had them fit and all by the PXG dealer in Fayetteville NC. Now he was stoked on them for 2 weeks or so which is about par for the course with him. Then he switched again and right now he is hitting a graphite shafted set of The newest Titleist I think the T-100 or something like that. I had told him when he got those PXGs that I was not messing with them period. Well he turned up at the house 2 weeks ago and had his PXG 6 iron he had pulled the shaft which is a disaster to begin with. He was wanting to switch shafts to something else. He had no idea what diameter the shafts were. Well the engineers at PXG have complicated things. If you use anything less than 370 then you have to buy the plastic adaptors and a special PXG collered ferrule. I cleaned out the hosel where he had heated it and melted the adaptors and it was a mess. I did retrofit a 370 shaft into it but tried a Callaway collered ferrule and I am not completely satisifed with the fitment. I do know at the bottom it is drilled for a taper tip but from my research I have the conclusion you can fit any shaft into it supposedly but I am not fully convinced. I have never been into shimming shafts period. I told him the other day to come get it and like I told him to begin with I was not messing with those things and he needed to take them back to the dealer. One thing I am convinced of is those clubs are weighted in the hosel I do not care what they say those adaptors even if they are plastic add weight to the hosel. If I end up with a set for me I will drill all the way down and put 370 shafts in them. If I do his like that he will more than likely hit the good for a while and then say I messed up the balance of something like that.
