  1. Bridgestone Thread

    In light of the below thread "why didn't Padraig chip out sideways" it seems that Tiger Woods has been fined: http://sports.yahoo.com/golf/pga/new...v=ap&type;=lgns Harrington appears to be just getting on with it - Woods is out of pocket but only by a little. I'd prefer to see them fining him for spitting and conduct unbecomming of a sports star. Last group of a WGC - the massive crowds following them, making players rush sucks...
  2. Bridgestone Thread

    Has anyone mentioned that they were put on the clock? Harrington rushed that 2nd shot - it was a poor attempt. Is it fair to put some final group on the clock? When it's Tiger and the crowd is 10 deep there is added noise and movement. Harrington was notoriously slow at one time and has been on the clock a good few times but he has gotten quicker. Don't think he "crumbled" as stated above. Found himself in some tricky spots and was unable to make the shots. He went for broke and it didn't work. If anyone was watching it rather than looking at the end result they'll know that Harrington was caught, overtaken and then he bounced back to be one ahead with 3 to play. As Harrington has said to Woods "we'll do battle plenty more times" - would be sweet to get one back on him next week.
  3. Ryder Cup 2010

    Opening Ceremony will be on Thurs so make sure you go early to see some golf. I went on Tuesday in 2006 - was amazing. Saw everyone. Photos and videos (look on youtube). Weather was great (it rained every other day that week). People who went Wednesday were disappointed as the Americans went out on the back 9 in a 12 ball and hit approach shots only or something crazy. The fans weren't happy. On the Tuesday both everyone from teams played every hole. We arrived at around 7:30 and Woods & Furyk had already played 4 holes. So be early! Bring a camera, get yourself in a good position behind a tee or something, stay there for an hour and you'll get your money's worth. They were strict on phones but cameras were ok.
  4. take a look at your other clubs - pick something that'll be in between. I got the 3 wood - in between my driver (10.5) and 5 wood (19). Would maybe have looked at getting the 4 wood if I was only getting one wood. I love the 5 wood - gets in the air real quick and great out of all lies. 3 wood is great for tee shots where accuracy is paramount. I guess the 4 wood would be a mix.
  5. what is a "3+ wood?"

    Used to have a Taylormade Tour Launch Burner (2008) 5 wood with 17.5 degrees loft. Was basically a 4 wood. Which was too close to my 5 wood so changed it.
  6. according to Sergio himself on youtube/pga tour, what's in the bag, he has a 10.5 with it set to R (open) which gives him a 8.5 degree face. i've just set mine to NU (the smaller version) - playing some links this weekend - keeping it low :)
  7. Dilema

    Ever wonder if it's the indian and not the arrows? I find the Tour Preferred to be very responsive, forgiving (for a small club with minimal offset) and good from ever lie. I didn't think they agreed with me at first but I gave them time. After all - the guys who fitted me really know what they're talking about and they said I was going to love this club. The KBS shafts are brilliant too. It's very easy to blame the clubs when you shoot in the 90's. You're playing off a handicap of 7? Thought you'd be able to break 90 with any irons. Feel or no feel. Missing a green should only be one drop shot for you. Were you driving it in the rough? Shanking it? Hitting it into water hazards or OB?
  8. New Golf Bag

    Had the Ping Hoover Vantage in college - was perfect. Small, light, versitile. Just got a TM TMX Stand bag as a replacement - it's a better bag and way nicer looking. Got it because I like having a stand but don't carry my clubs much. Like going to the range which i do a lot - it's good to have a carry bag to walk down to the short game area. Or if I'm just playing 9 it's good. It's a heavier bag but still works :) I don't like bags being too heavy but this is fine, even with umbrella!
  9. Went and got myself fitted this year - my PW was a strong 47 and 54 was actually 55. So first thing's first I was told, fill the gap with at 51. I actually got new irons with a 47 custom fitted and a 51 degree Cleveland DSG RTG. Love this club. Went and got a 56 (bent to 55) and 60 (bent to 59). Now my settup is: Taylormade Tour Preferred PW 47 degrees Cleveland 51 Cleveland 55 Cleveland 59 ...making it an even 4 degree gap between each one. Sacraficed a 3 iron for this - have less use for a 3 iron. Have a gap between 5 wood and 4 iron now (17.5 up to 24) but getting a 19 degree 5 wood to make it a smaller gap. You'll love Cleveland wedges!
  10. Taylormade stock shafts are junk - I hit loads of clubs in front of a launch monitor with my own woods (all RE-AX TM stock shafts at the time) and the vaunch angle variablilty was crazy. I hit some decent non stock shafts and results were so much more consistent I was sold...
