    Guy has won 3 times and earned his way onto the Ryder Cup team and this is the BEST What’s in the Bag you can do? This site is just getting plain lazy with this stuff…

    How does the same shaft get tipped 1 inch more and become 2 inches longer?

    These aren’t specs. Is this a joke?

    Are his wedges the same length as the rest of his irons? I don’t recall reading one way or the other.

    All the likes… it wasn’t long ago that he was catching nothing but flak around here for is SLI.

    Hypocrites.

    BAD has 3 wins, Fed Ex Cup Leader and 9 top 10s.

      Majors mean more than top 10s and analytics. Credit to him going back to back though

    Player of the tear?

      Koepka won 2 majors

    • Doober

      Sep 3, 2018 at 9:31 pm

      Get out of here if you genuinely think DeChambeau should get the player of the year over Koepka

      • ~j~

        Sep 4, 2018 at 12:37 pm

        2 majors and a 2nd place finish for Keopka. 6 top-10’s.

        3 wins and 9 Top-10 finishes for Bryson.

        Majors should not be the de-facto independant factors into winning the PoY. And even if, the US Open this year is a damned wash in my book. I’ve never seen players penalized so much for hitting quality shots into the greens. Could have easily been someone else’s tournament to win than Brooks all based on how lucky one could get at holding the greens. ‘Someone’ had to win.

        And at the PGA Championship he had ample oppertunities to put away the field over the weekend yet missed more short putts than I can care to remember. An unspectacular win that was overshadowed on Sunday by the better play of others.

        Does Bryson deserve PoY? He’s certainly should be part of the conversation. Should Brooks win PoY defacto based on play of 2 tournaments only? Absolutely NOT.

        If he wins the FedEx Cup, slam dunk for BAD.

      I’m a big fan of BD, but it’s hard to imagine that even winning the FedEx Cup tops two majors.

Forum Thread of the Day: “New Ping G410 Driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from hervygolf21, and it surrounds the new G410 driver from Ping that is allegedly set for release at the beginning of 2019. Our members have found out plenty of information on the latest driver from Ping since the thread began, apparently, and here’s a quick look at some of the features you might expect from the new model (if you take forum members’ word for it).

According to the thread, the PING G410 will be black with red accents, will have a higher MOI than the current G400 model, will still contain the Ping Turbulators and will be offered in 12 degrees without draw weighting. It’s also believed that the G400 Max will remain current until July/August 2019, but at a lower price point.

Here are a few posts in the thread reflecting on the news, but make sure to check out the entire thread and join the discussion at the link below.

  • lc1342: “Love both the G400 LST and G400 Max, but if they are bringing out something better… I’ll take it!”
  • cz13x4: “This sounds like a very interesting update. Not keen on red but very interested to see what comes out.”
  • roho: “Late January?  Sounds like maybe a PGA Show unveil in Orlando.”

Ben Hogan adds Ft. Worth “White” to iron lineup

Published

on

After the launch of Diamond Black Metal finish Ft. Worth “Black” irons earlier this year, Ben Hogan’s nickel-chrome Ft. Worth irons are back…sort of. The Texas-baed company today announced the launch of Ben Hogan Ft. Worth White irons.

Now with respect to the “White” designation, If you’re skeptical/confused, well, let’s just have a look at a comment on BH’s Instagram post announcing the iron launch and the company’s response…

jonmodica: “Very unclear the changes from previous model… also… white? It’s chrome…..”

Benhogangolf: ”@jonmodica More progressive specific to each club head, a more aggressive V-Sole pattern and the ‘white’ is opposite of the popular and newly designed Ft. Worth Black.”

There you have it, folks. “White” as in contrast to the Ft. Worth Black irons, and the Ft. Worth White is not merely a re-issue of original chrome Ft. Worth, according to the company.

With respect to the changes to the V-Sole system, the company said this in its marketing materials for the Ft. Worth Black.

“Feedback from strong players and robot testing indicated that the leading edge could be increased on certain irons, and trailing edge softened … especially with less-than-full shots in the shorter irons.”

“So, in our ongoing quest to design and manufacture the best clubs in golf, we’ve modified the V-Sole Technology used on the Ben Hogan Ft. Worth BLACK slightly. The sole maintains the same basic design principles as the original V-Sole but has been optimized for each iron in the set. In effect, we’ve strengthened the leading edge from the sole to the face on some of the Ft. Worth BLACK irons, while reducing the trailing edge bounce on others.”

Obviously, the company scrapped the PreciseLoft system introduced with the original Ft. Worth irons. That system offered four loft profiles, all with consistent four-degree gaps. After finding the vast majority of players preferred the “mid-high” launch profile, the company did away with the others…and returned to tradition iron number (rather than loft) stamping on the toe.

The aforementioned lofts in the 4-PW set range from 22 degrees to 46 degrees.

“The Ft. Worth White Irons are illustrative of how Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company interacts with and listens to its customers,” said Scott White, President and CEO, Ben Hogan Golf Equipment Company. “On the heels of our sales success with the Ft. Worth Black Irons, we found many ‘traditionalists’ who wanted to play this iron design with the standard nickel-chrome finish, so we accommodated them with this launch.”

Ft. Worth White irons are available for purchase on the Ben Hogan website exclusively for $700.00 per seven-piece set (4-PW).
