I always liked his swing, and he is a nice guy, but this is pretty awesome of him

Maybe so, but it's ~ $2 million (depending on how things work out) all the same, and it generates publicity that will work as advertising and probably result in more donations.

I gave my $20 of pocket money to the cause, apparently he has a somewhat larger pocket.  :-)

Exactly.  He doesnt HAVE to give them anything but he is chosing to.  Its a pretty awesome thing considering he is still just a 19 year old kid.

I wish I could afford to give more money too.  Ive given about $100 to the Red Cross, bought one of those, "pray for Japan" bracelets and have attended a few fundraiser dinners.  Wish I could do more.

I lived in Miyagi (hardest his region) for three years, and I spent two years in Natori --- which got hit pretty hard by the tsunami.  So I think Ishikawa just became my favorite golfer.  I hope he does particularly well this year --- maybe he can get a 59 on this side of the Pacific!

Ishikawa seems like a down-to-earth guy. Giving away his 2011 earnings is a really nice way to help his country and probably encourage others to contribute as well.

    • Looks like they have a standard hosel of .355. They should be easy to reshaft. I would recommend trying one club like a 7 iron and see how you like it. You may want to try a few shafts out at a golf shop on other clubs first to see if senior flex is right for you. Tell them you love the heads and just want to try new shafts. Better yet, if there is a good fitter in your area, they would be a better place to try this.  Tell them the same thing. You love the heads. Also, add an avatar when you can. Thanks.
    • @newbiecaddie OnCore Golf launch this App last month. I haven't had time to try it yet, but it looks interesting. Here is a video demonstration - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGfVVxwPHGc
    • A poll would be nice for this topic. Mine is standard 45.5”.
    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
