At the firestone tournament I was talking to AK's personal trainer Darby, and he said the thing that amazes him the most is that when AK tried some of the balls that the amateur used it added 10 yards.
First of all, they don't make the loft that much lower. It's about two to three degrees, and loft isn't the only thing that seperates irons. The length adds centrifugal force, and yada yada yada. Also, there balls are a lot softer then ours.
This article makes it sound like they've split forever, when AK is only just letting him go for the rest of the year, but leaving the door open for next year.
AK says it has nothing to do with the aftermath of the President's Cup. What do you think the reason is.
