Actually, that's not true anymore.    Nike started making their own balls at their own facilities starting this year w/ this ball.    FYI, I play the 20XIx and have of course played the S version a few times.    Both balls are great, IMO.  Obviously, everyone is entitled to their opinion but some of what I'm reading seems pretty misguided, and I'm left scratching my head thinking, "how do you come to that conclusion"?    Whatever though.  That's the beauty of having...
Well in my opinion I don't think it's a flop by any means.   I feel the Penta is a very solid, good golf ball.  I would rank it 3rd on a very competitive list behind the ProV1x and the 20XIx.    That's obviously just me personally.    As for why the popularity has died?  I don't know.  Doesn't it always w/ new equipment?  That doesn't mean the product is any WORSE than when it was new.    I don't know.  I just think folks tried it, were lukewarm on...
I watched a lot of the Solheim Cup from day 1.  I enjoyed it.  Congrats to team Europe are in order, although I do believe w/ a healthy Kerr there would have been a different outcome.    That said.  This and the Ryder Cup were both affected pretty heavily w/ the conditions.  It was no surprise.  I can't imagine the players enjoy playing in that and I do believe it takes away from the competition when players have to deal w/ the cold, rainy, windy and wet conditions....
My regular golfing partner isn't good.  He's my "regular" partner because he loves the game as much as I do and he's a good friend.  He's not consistent at anything.  He doesn't do one thing particularly well.  But, half way through the round, after a bad shot, I'll start hearing, "jease, I'm just not striking my irons well TODAY", or, "damnit, I just can't drive TODAY", or, "Jease, my short game is lost TODAY".   I just want to scream at him and ask, "When have you...
I didn't take Rocco's comments equating to him giving Tiger any kind of tips.    I think Rocco sincerely wants Tiger to get back to doing what he does best, and that's play better than anyone else in the world.  I think Rocco will be the first to admit he's not a position to give Tiger, or anyone else for that matter, swing tips.       
So, this is going to save our planet (which, apparently is in dire need of being saved)?  By saving a little paper/cardboard per case of balls?    Ok................................ 
Why would anyone want to play w/ C. Kerr?  Do some of you enjoy being frowned at and/or yelled at?    I'd go w/ Alizahara Munoz and/or Beatriz Recari.       
haha.  It's not like I set out to copy him or anything like that because I didn't.  I work w/ a pro and my swing worked into something similar to that of a Kucher, or a flatter, one plane swinger. It's worked out pretty well for me.  To each his own.   And I have to think it's his height (6'4) that makes his irons look so damn tiny, isn't it?  Because you're right, it does look goofy.   
  haha.  It's only 110 euro.  Isn't that about $150?    You have no problem throwing away that kind of money?  Ok.........   And I certainly am not worked up.  You do whatever you want.    (I'd still be interested in seeing pics)    
I think it's safe to say he's got one of the more unusual swings on tour.  And by saying unusual, I mean NOT fundamental and would equate to a ton of problems for a lot of folks if they were to try it.    His backswing is quite long.  He brings his arms way, way back ala John Daly.    He keeps a lot of his weight on his right side, which is very evident when he hits the driver.    Up until relatively recently I had a problem of ballooning balls off the tee. ...
