It would be really tough to decide between #1 and #2 but I'd probably opt for #2.

 

If I could make up my own group I'd play with Trevino, Couples and Charlie Sifford. I interviewed Sifford many years ago and he had some great stories...a few of which i could actually use (after some editing 😳 ). 

 

That would be a memorable day on the course to say the least.

Great answer, Charlie used to play at a course outside Houston when I first moved there in the early 80's. He was very friendly, and could tell quite a tale.

It was 1973-ish and I was a college kid listening to a legend. The only thing I really remember about the interview was him talking about winning his first US Negro Open. I wasn't that naive but hearing that come out of his mouth was sobering. Or something.

Sorry to derail the topic here but I hadn't thought about that in a long time.

As would the round..!

 

I'd pick group 4 although I'd like to follow group 2.   I can see group 4 having a good time on the golf course.   ie..."hold my beer, watch this..."

Definitely group 2 for me. No desire to play with Player so he kills group 1 for me.

Group 2. GOAT, the Escape Artist and Rory’s beautiful swing. My choice.

Group 1, Love to talk with Jack and Arnie, but would not want to listen to Gary Player drone on about himself.

Group 3, would be cool watching the power twins and Bubba bending it.

Group 4, would be cool too. Pound for pound some of the strongest players.

Group 5, not household name but still Pros.

I voted narrowly for 1 over 2. I suspect it would be a closer poll if Gary Player were replaced by Tom Watson.

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup.

    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
