Love this! Not sure what if he has story ideas so far but would love to see him deep dive into the current status of PGAT/PIF and how it’s impacting the broader picture of the sport. All politics aside, how will any sort of merger benefit the sport regardless of how it may help/hurt the PGAT or LIV. Also, a story on why more people should be watching the LPGAT.

Interesting news for sure!

Obviously grabbing up big names costs money. Will MGS, these forums, etc be moving towards a paid membership level option next?

WITB-Foremost 551's - 3w, 5w, 5-SW (circa 1998), Top Flite 460cc Driver, Adam's 7w, Warrior GW and 60⁰, Odyssey AI-One DB putter.

Just an old newbie golfer, trying to learn and improve 1 club at a time.

Thank you for Stating that! I've seen it happen too many times on other boards. And I did not mean to create any discord amongst our golf family here!

I'm hoping that AS also will be testing products, just like us!

I'd love to know what he thinks about the Martini Tee, the Divide golf ball and FJ's golf sandals.

🤣

After retiring from the PGA of America, I did some demo days and club fitting for TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping, Cobra, Srixon and Mizuno.

Not a fan of Alan or this announcement.  Writers making money by stirring up controversy within the sport, and using quotation marks from their unnamed sources, falls short of credible, worthy journalism. 

Here's hoping the tenor of MGS's articles don't start down the road of big on sensationalism and small on credibility.

Interesting news.  MGS is growing by leaps and bounds it seems.  New HQ, well-known writers, great testing opportunities...

I look forward to future features and featured writers like Mr. Shipnuck.  Agree or disagree with him, his articles are usually though provoking.
