After taking all the heat already, I am surprised he withdrew.
Exactly! Regardless of whether this is a "developmental tour" or not, it is based on meritocracy. If you don't like it, get better and beat him! Or get at least good to beat those on KFT to move up in the ranking so YOU won't be "bumped".
Perhaps, this is the reason??? If so, I still don't see why he had to withdraw. Maybe to save embarrassment of not having qualified after all the hoopla?

There is one set of 10 Nitro Blaster clubs for $100. I found this with a google search and about 5 minutes of effort searching through web pages. I am sure you could find similar deals. This one says graphite/steel shafts.
