Ummm... Phil just won.

I've been on this forum for over a year, and never been accused of "trolling"

If it doesn't bother you or make you think...then don't respond.

If you're not religious, what's the beef? I assume you also boycotted Hoover for the Dirt Devil, Little Debbie for Devil Dogs and Devil Cremes... I'm sure with a Google search or two I could keep this up for days. My bet is that you'll answer, "No, I didn't" because the underlying argument here has nothing to do with the Devil. It's clearly irrational and borderline trolling. Get over it.
Dirt Devil vacuums are a pos, never had the urge to eat a "Devil Dog or Devil Creme" ( I prefer Star Crunches)...when it comes to eating junk food.

Callaway is at the top of high end products in golf (They sell the most expensive Drivers).....

Soooo...
should BMW roll out the brand new "Lucifer 66X Sedan" ?
Or Mercedes market the "Mephistopheles F Class"

or soon to be the lone American car company (Hopefully)....Ford unveil the "Beelzebub F150 Pickup truck"

Re: What driver is Phil Using?

Yeah, what is trolling? I'm sure there's a more descriptive word out there.

I've stayed away from this discussion...or lack thereof. I just wanted to know what driver the guy used to win. And everyone's talking about the devil.

It's a name of a club. I find it a little tacky...like something that a lesser known/succesful company would use, but it's still just a name.

If ThreePutt doesn't like the name, so be it. It could be because he's religious (posts lead me to believe otherwise - and you don't even know if he believes in the devil), or it could be that he finds it tacky like I do, or it could be that he doesn't like Callaway, or whatever. Who cares?

Back to the discussion, whatever driver-headcover combo Phil used, he won. I was surprised that he used 3 wood on the last hole. I was half expecting a "flog" atempt at it! Glad to see that he won though.

Trolling is a very standard internet forum term. It's the act of making an inane, off-topic, or controversial post to get a response. Hijacking a thread qualifies. So, someone who decides to go evangelist on a thread that mentions a driver called the Diablo when the discussion is what club did Phil use at the Northern would be a troll. Oops. Sorry, Three Putt. Those of us who responded would just be feeding the troll, as it were.

(I'm not saying I never do this, just that I try to run everything through a filter so I don't.)

I'm surprised that he showed the restraint to hit 3-wood. The Phil we know and love would've just hammered driver and bogeyed to lose it. (Winning today doesn't absolve him from the title of choke artist.) I watched from about hole six through twelve or so and he looked awful with driver. No control. Even the commentators made light of not knowing whether he was going to end up right or left when he swung it.

That being said, I'm glad to see he didn't screw it up. When he plays well golf is more interesting to watch. Now if he can only figure out that FT-9...

No. That would make no sense with cars. Golf clubs on the other hand, it would make sense. The name Diablo implies that the club is hot, and powerful. Almost the exact same as Nike's Sasquatch, but you could have very well complained as that being offensive because a Sasquatch is a fictional creature, and that Nike's CEO believes in fiction.

And, again, if you are not at all religious, why would you care? It seems pretty off to me.

Wow, car companies do not market cars as "hot and powerful"???

I guess you do not have access to a TV.

Re: What driver is Phil Using?

Perhaps Callaway should hire Flip Wilson to be its spokesman for the Diablo series of products. After all, if you remember, "The devil made him do it!" Of course, I always preferred "Geraldine."

Yes, how absurd.
Imagine, Lamborghini would name a car Lamborghini Diablo.

Actually, the FT-IQ has more than once been compared to the looks of a Lamborghini.

Beat me to it. I opened the reply box, but then had some work to do before I finished my reply!

No idea what the resale value is, can't find it, but didn't look that hard either. Looks like they made 3000 of them between 1991 and 2001 or so. Quite different than a Driver that is priced ay $300 for the general public in 2009. I was just asking a simple question. Lamborghini is not a mass market product, quite frankly they play second fiddle to Ferrrari.

Maybe I haven't been to church in 20 years, and yes there are more important things going on in the world right now...I didn't know we were playing a game of "Let's state the obvious".

Just a company trying to pay a debt maybe???

Callaway sent out a survey a year or so ago about what name they should use. I voted Diablo because it was the best sounding name.

I guess you dont use Voodoo shafts either do you?
