Just doesn’t seem natural to me, but hey I’ll get over it. I guess it’s just the way it is now.

It doesn't surprise me any more, but I'd feel like an ass cheering for a Red October.

I do not like our pairings this afternoon. Phil does not look sharp.  Dj and Rickie look like they lost some energy. It is showing in he scores so far. I hope we can grab at least a point this afternoon

Featured match on CBS is the the DJ/RF vs. JR/HS but I think the JT/JS vs FM/TF seems like it would be a fun match to watch. THey all did well in the 1 session and are playing with a bit of fire in their bellies.

I wish the teams had two distinct colored shirts. A lot of guys wearing the dark blue shirts. Throws me off a bit at first glance. Not a huge deal would just like to see some color disparity.

Is it a good idea to match the rookie Bryson with the shaky Phil?

I didn't like that duo, I always thought Bryson was hit or miss this year. When he is on it looks good but when he is off it seems really bad. 

Wow USA can't buy a put this afternoon.

Yea... agree. At first glance I look at the pants. USA in white, Euro in dark.

Couldn’t ask for a better pair for the under pressure Garcia and the rookie Noren to play against.

looks good for Europe right now, but anything less than 3 and a half points from this afternoon would be disappointing. Can’t risk letting them back.

Phil and BD pairing makes no sense. BD approaches the game like a robot and tries to approach every shot scientifically (literally). Why would you pair him out n alternate shot with a guy who is a total free wheeler on the course?  Fourball would be one thing, but alternate shot is just stupid. Also why no Reed/Spieth pairing?

    • I’ve never tinkered with swing weight before, and when I build a set of irons I usually just settle for the feel of the clubs as-built with the idea that I’ll eventually get used to the different feel. That said, my main set of irons feels perfect to me (probably just familiarity with them), and adjusting swing weight is something I’d like to be able to do in the future to make my other sets feel closer to them. I’ve just never invested the time to work on it. 
    • Day 321 Did mirror work on takeaway/backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron and 3W working on hip turn piece. 
    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it. 
    • @ajl, it seems to me that what you're asking isn't about the performance or design differences between one set of irons from one manufacturer versus another, but simply what the difference between a premium set of golf clubs and a generic or a knockoff set is? The answer, as in all products in life, comes down to quality. A premium manufacturer cares if their manufacturing process produces X% variation from club to club which can result in differences in performance from set to set. A clone company won't and they know their customers don't, so they don't invest the time or money into having higher manufacturing tolerances.
