They really didn't get that there's a difference between Pro V1 and Pro V1x earlier? That seems really strange. Aren't there differences between some Pro V1 models, though? Like left arrow or right arrow or something like that? I would get confusing that, but confusing V1 and V1x seems really amateurish.

If I am reading this correctly it seems they weren't necessarily unaware of the performance difference between the models (V1 vs. V1x) but rather they noticed the ball difference bit late in the process, i.e., the eve of the start. And then hasty pairing changes were made.

I would think this has got to be be a routine issue for RC foursome pairings though. For eg. Rory and Poulter play different brands AFAIK. Also, I didn't know this was a major consideration in pairing choices, i.e., any pro who plays a V1 could fairly easily adjust to V1x and vice versa. Of course easy for a weekend hacker to say but is it really that much of an issue..?? Ha ha...

Harris English had a last-minute grip repair to his putter:

I would say quite a big difference, on a driver shot it's the carry that would hurt or into a green you won't get the same control. But for us hackers not much to worry about where not playing for our country lol...

Yeah, but wouldn't they rather play with the right partner over three yards of carry distance? Isn't the chemistry y'all's calling card? Just sayin'. 😊

With such a wide margin of victory not sure the ball or partners would have mattered. That is a lot of points to make up. They got throttled. 

Padraig downplayed this a bit in a recent interview. He was surprised that it was made a big deal… he didn't think it was one.

He also gave the Euro team credit for teaching the Americans how to win a RC. We were lucky to learn such valuable information.😳

    • My college was about 50% Natalie's cost. An order of magnitude would be crazy. I don't think that rule of thumb holds up. 10x over 20-25 years? That's so far out of whack I can't imagine it. Denison costs about $75,000 per year. No way it cost only $7500 in 1996. Allegheny almost as much, and no way did it cost < $7k 25 years ago. It's gone up but I have no belief it's an order of magnitude.
    • Definitely better and different than at the 2017 Newport Cup. Good work. This amount of change is hard.
    • Sadly, a rule of thumb on tuition is an order of magnitude per generation. When I was a freshman at WPI, my roommate and I were paying $6000 tuition. His dad, who went to WPI, pay $600. Now it $60,000. And frankly, it’s not like the school is worth a 1000% more now.  I would only agree to forgiveness or help where the loans were predatory in nature. There have been instances of this, especially in the for-profit universities. But the cost has to be reined in. It’s far greater than inflation would justify.
    • My go to ball is the Snell MTB Black (great ball at a great price).  Characteristics and performance are comparable to the below balls I also play. I’ll buy the ZStar (buy 2, get 1) and TP5x (buy 3, get 1) when they’re on sale.  I also really like the ProV1, but only play them when I get them as a gift.
    • I don’t see anything wrong with your bag.  Maybe just continue messing around with longer clubs until you find something you really like?   Not sure an extra club in your scoring clubs is necessary either.  I think the best way to tighten up that end of the bag is working on flighted shots.
