I actually got to hit a driver like this recently, it's pretty good.  It's more expensive because the materials are of a much higher quality, the shaft put in is good shaft, not a "made for" and for a company like Royal Collection it's marketing.  Low price point means the driver is crap, Japanese marketing.  Not a bad price when compared to the other Japanese drivers

That's what I am wondering.  Does it hit longer and straighter than my $150 TM Burner?  For that price I should be able to stay in the cart and send it out to hit the ball.

It's a different market over there. Asian golf magazines are loaded with ads for expensive status symbols like $4000+ watches. They resemble fashion magazines more then Golf Digest. A bucket of balls at the driving range I went to cost $17!  They hit into huge nets, the distance short. Green Fees are high, probably the driver is the only club most "golfers" will ever use - the more expensive the better. (Wait!  It's that way at the range here.)

TV commercials for  Honma are artistic with only the words Honma Golf. Like what more is to be said?

One "American" companies TV commercials markets irons called "impress"(really fugly) using Batman.  It looks like the trailer for the next Batman movie. (It's either Calloway or Taylor.)

Balls come in a rainbow of colors. (Color is the marketing gimmick - not distance or spin.)  Men's clubs also come in a rainbow of colors.

Gold Plated putters are available.  (Will the next Scotty for 2012 be the Golden Girl?)

    • Day 205: I was able to squeeze in about 20 minutes work between rain showers. Just focused on transition feels and center face contact.
    • Yes, eventually you learn when to do it in order not to slow down play and still get it done without feeling hurried. I walk fast am am usually the first to the green many times, so that helps too. And by pacing, I simply walk to the pin and multiply by 3 ft/pace. Just in case anyone thinks otherwise. 
    • I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.   Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.   Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure? Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.
    • I estimate first putt length. When I first took AimPoint, we practiced estimating distance because it was part of the mid-read technique. It’s pretty easy once you break the putt into sections visually.
