Has the eighth ranked golfer in the world ever been this big a deal? Because no matter how badly Tiger Woods struggles, the embattled superstar continues to gobble up nearly every ounce of golf attention. Few weeks offered as much evidence as this one, with fans and detractors hopping on Woods' relationship with his coach, his fellow competitors and even his equipment.
Chalk it up to the layoff and the fact that Woods has been off the scene for a while, but there was no lack of drama surrounding the great one when he arrived at TPC Sawgrass for this week's Players Championship. The most glaring storyline was borne out of Bubba Watson's recent comment.
"I'll just go ahead and say it. I think Tiger is going the wrong way," said Watson.
I'll make no bones about it - I love the Players. There is something about it that makes me happier than Jim Nantz dreaming up his next final-second call.
But as we know, the Players is not a major. It's not ahead of the PGA, it's not the Fifth Major, and it's not the PGA Tour's answer to anything. Don't get me wrong, I'd love nothing more than to see the Players hyped as much as the U.S. Open, but realistically it's just not there.
Here are the top five reasons why.
We've got a good mix of stuff to cover this week, one being Miura's new Passing Point 9003 irons which were actually released right around a month ago, and the other being more new stuff from Adams in the form of their latest in the Idea Pro line, the a12 hybrids and forged irons.
While Miura marches along at their own schedule, taking their time painstakingly crafting their forged irons, Adams on the other hand, who we actually just visited a couple of weeks back, rolls along with their yearly release of game enhancement hybrids and irons. Lets dive right in and have a look at both.
