    devine I punched in what I wanted online and ordered through some online golf warehouse. No idea who it was. The box stores may not have what you need… I bought mine during Covid two summers ago and I want to say it took about a month for them to put my order in directly with Ping and get them shipped to me.

    Played with a buddy earlier this week who has whatever the new Rogue game improvement irons are. Holy offset. Compared to my 921 forged it was crazy. That said, hit them back to back with good swings. Similar flight, Rogue definitely stronger. Feel not even in the same universe as expected. I’d co-sign them.

    Today I decided that I would choke down on all wedge shots. Today I wondered why I hadnt been doing that all along. Also will see if this actually gets some use.

    The new ones are the Rogue ST Max and a Rogue ST Max OS (OS has more offset). If you are looking for game improvement and feel with less offset you have to go Mizuno, but they also come with a higher price tag.

    But yeah even the strongest mizunos are like a 29 degree 7 iron, the strong Callaway are like 27.

    You will gain a lot more consistency with carry distance hitting shorter swing wedge shots. I feel like everything inside 100 I'm hitting 80% or less for the most part. Helps keep the ball down, reduce backspin, and improve the quality of the strikes as you can keep your weight more forward with a more narrow stance.

    I can Google this but just typing out loud here. Wondering if my Mizunos have a larger than normal gap between 9 and wedge. I hit the wedge a solid 5-10yds shorter than I expect based on the other gaps and it drives me fuckin bonkers

    being forged sometimes the lofts just get out of whack. It may be worth going to a local store with your 8-9-W and have them measure it.

    sometimes it’s just quality control as well.

    If you’re a dicks gold member you can do triple points on one purchase a year. When I bought my driver through them I tripled and ended up getting 50 in rewards.

    Devine I have a set of Calloway irons I will sell you for a cheap price. bought them brand new in 2019 and probably played with them a dozen times total. i can't remember the model number at all because they're tucked away in my basement. They are definitely on the game improvement end of the spectrum and too much club head for me. I liked them because i could nuke my 8 iron 180 but ended up having no real feel or control to them. Had to go back to the Mizuno Jpx 919s.

    At what point is everyone willing to realize that this was all inevitable. They’re all going to go and the Tour(s) won’t be able to keep them banned either. They’re already getting killed in court.

    Rory basically said yesterday it was time for the tour and Liv to come to the table and figure it out. The Saudis are just going to keep raising their prices and pick away the top players one by one. Everyone has a price.

    If it’s enough to completely change the tenor of the most popular players in the world, I’d say it’s getting killed in court. Or killed via court. We’re arguing semantics.

    Fact is, the Tour really had no legal ground to stand on in the first place and everyone knew it.

    the PGA Tour has not been sued yet. Not a single player has challenged the PGA suspensions and most of them have resigned. So no it’s not really semantics

    but I also agree LIV isn’t going away but that’s because it turns out money means more to these guys than anything else

    Do we really need that to actually happen to understand what the inevitable future looks like?

    Just like, do we really need Jordan Spieth to go to finally realize that the dam was going to break eventually?

    I’m not advocating for it or cheering it on. But the market works the way the market works. No need to try to fight it with hope.

    I said that LIV surviving is inevitable. But that has nothing to do with whether the PGA tour is in perfectly good standing to suspend their players based on contracts they signed. And there’s been no finding otherwise

    and the PGA may be wrong. But I don’t expect them to cave until a court tells them or someone like spieth bails. Spieth is an absolute game changer if true

    How can they decide to suspend players for playing for the LIV league when they have never shown a history of ever suspending players for playing on other Tours whilst remaining on the PGA Tour?

    The hypocrisy in that is clear. And the motive - pure anti-competitiveness - is also clear. They have no real legal ground to stand on.

    that’s the wrong question. Players are required to get releases to play in counter events.

    so the question is how many players have applied for a waiver, not gotten it and played anyway without suspension?

    the tour in the past has given waivers to play in the Saudi events. They didn’t now. And of course they didn’t grant waivers because they don’t want their players to go to a competing tour and blowing up their product. That’s not inherently illegal.

    Guys like Spieth, Rory, JT, etc. are looked up to by all the young players on Tour as the future leaders of the game. Their decision-making holds a lot of clout. Just like Arnold Palmer’s did when a previous competitive league idea was floated decades ago.

    If one of them goes, the dam breaks.

    Of course they are. It’s literally the obvious question everyone has been mulling since this idea was floated a year+ ago.

    It’s not a talking point because it’s propaganda. It’s a talking point because it’s the obvious state of things.
