    Pxg def pays their players, not a whole lot though. There drivers and woods are not great, but there irons are very good clubs. What they charge us up to them and can’t knock A company for great marketing and sales. Pretty much any Titleist and Tm club iron etc these days are 200-249 pr club with custom shafts. I love Howell, but not a whole lot of competition in this filed. If the club switch is not a fluke, he should be in the winners circle a lot more in the near future! I

    I remember watching him play at the Future Masters in Dothan, AL, and him spending many hours practicing his short game at Olympia Spa. A young kid, perhaps 10-12 in knickers, and so dedicated. So glad for him, a great kid then and a great representative of this game now. Play on Charles!

    I remember when Parsons said in an interview that he ‘doesn’t pay any of the pros to play his equipment. They come to him because the equipment is superior’. What a load S%$!t. Parsons is a total jerk – ask anyone who knows him.

      Exactly!! I hate when people still try to argue that PXG doesn’t pay their players. If PXG didn’t pay them why would they wear their hats??

    Chucky rocking a 7 wood? 21* fairway wood is a 7, no?

    • Point misser

      Nov 19, 2018 at 3:22 pm

      Probably opened down to 19* An absolute rocket no doubt

      Let’s call it a 5 wood or utility wood…7 woods are for women

    He started to play a lot better when he stopped playing the overpriced & overhyped PXG’s. WTG Charles III. You deserved the win.

    I am happy for Chucky 3 Stix!! He has been around for a long time and its great to see him finally back in the winners circle. Once he got rid of that PXG (Parsons Xtreme Garbage) his game turned around, imagine that!! Good for you Chuck!

    You left out the Orange whip. Does he also have a round grip on his putter?

    Titleist baby – switching did him well. The clubs of a player.

    Awesome putter! Throw out the rest. But, hey, at least he realized PXG was junk.

    Funky setup. MB in 4 iron and then AP2 to CB. One would have suspected the other way round, MB in short irons, AP2 in mid and CB in long irons. Goes to show, go with what works.

      T-MB 4 iron, you moron

        TMB is MB Donny Dorko. We all read Titleist. Go get a Slushee to cwool down. Did I mean cool? I must be a moron but more on this later…..

      I would think that it would be more like the CBs in the mid and AP2s in the long irons, since the AP2s are more forgiving. As to what you mentioned, the CBs in the long irons, right?

    Chucky switches to Titleist and now 33% of his wins come with the big T. He drove that driver so straight and flushed his irons. Solid striker who hit 88% of his greens!

    He said he loved the feel of his new clubs in the bag. Based off the hollow of the PXG’s, who could blame him? Overpriced gimmicks that he was stuck with last few years.

    Chucky 3 sticks, we love you man!

    Nov 18, 2018 at 10:15 pm

    Yes, cheers to you CH, well done! Hits the ball wicked fah for a skinny guy like me!

    The PX LZ’s are bitchin’ shafts with the V1. Find the right flex and the spin and trajectory are great for most amateurs. A deep face 10.5 low spin driver with the V1 is also a good combo. Good for him.

    Wicked weapons of golf destruction in Chuck’s WITB arsenal of winning clubs… 😮

  16. 1488 is coming

    Congrats CH3! So nice to see him win again. Hard work pays off!

    I was pulling for him. It was nice to see him come away with the win

    Three Sticks is back!! I like those cb’s in the short irons. Reminds me of my Miura cb 202. See ya at Augusta!

    Love seeing this. He just got this bag too. I believe I saw him pulling plastic off his wedges the first day. PXG who? Is that the seriously over priced gear that has literally taken the worlds best off the map?
    Run while you can guys… run!

      It must be the clubs! Immediate switch and he wins in 11 years. Imagine if you change clubs before every single tournament. You’ll probably win every single one!

      Would have expected the “worlds best” to have more that 2 PGA wins entering the week??

Forum Thread of the Day: “Charley Hoffman’s custom Scotty Cameron putter”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Charley Hoffman’s custom Scotty Cameron Putter. The putter, which Hoffman used recently at the QBE shootout, has quite a nostalgic feel to it, although it appears the majority of our members are not too enamored with the new flatstick.

Check out the full thread and all of the photos here.

Here is what some of our members have been saying about Hoffman’s putter, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • Meanmachinemoe: “Hoping this is a preview of his 2019 line-up so I won’t be tempted. UGLY!”
  • evansmar004: “The top is not good looking….but I love walking the Scotty dog”
  • cxx: “You guys are funny.  The only beauty in a putter is how many putts find the bottom of the cup.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “What is your favorite ‘Tour Issue’ club of all time?”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from pmurph#3, who asks fellow members what their favourite Tour Issue club of all time is. Despite these clubs not featuring in your local golf store, it doesn’t stop our members from getting their hands on them, and in the thread, we see plenty of rare clubs mentioned.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mosesgolf: “The 300 Tour and then the R510 DF (no TP logo on toe underline half line) in respective order.  These two drivers imo kicked off the “Tour” craze. I still have the Adams “Peanut” hybrid which is the best hybrid I’ve ever played.”
  • 300_yard_drives: “Secret tour issue Callaway apex di and I still have mine. Asian Tour rep didn’t even know it existed. I have only seen it in one other person’s bag personally, and that was Jaime Sadlowski.”
  • cardoustie: “I gotta go with 510df, that to me started the whole tour issue thing. I did get a TI driver at one time … 580 xd tp IIRC, but I hooked it off the planet.  Must have had loads of hot melt in the heel.  And it wasn’t just me; even my +3 buddy couldn’t hit it straight.  Too bad as the feel was exceptional.”
  • cgasucks: “The Titleist 970 FW.  This is the one that Tiger used as his three-wood in his prime.  Very hard to get then…and very hard to get now.”

Wilson introduces super game improvement Staff D7 irons



Wilson Golf has announced that 2019 will see the release of their new super game improvement Wilson Staff D7 distance irons.

The new Wilson Staff D7 distance irons will keep the aesthetics from the FG Tour V6 and C300 irons while integrating Wilson’s RE-AKT technology, which is designed to provide golfers with extra power.

Speaking with regards to the new irons, manager of Wilson Golf Innovation Jon Pergande, described precisely what the new clubs are set to offer golfers.

“The D7 line is our latest installment of game improvement irons that will give golfers increased distances on longer irons and precision with the shorter clubs. Our RE-AKT technology and ultra-thin responsive club-face increases ball speeds to help produce maximum distances, while the shorter clubs give golfers a greater feel and more distance control.”

Just how has Wilson Golf gone about constructing these new irons to achieve these goals?

Well, the Wilson Staff D7 long irons (4-7 iron) feature three rows of power holes, and will also contain Wilson’s thinnest club face ever, designed to provide golfers with both maximum distance and greater responsiveness off the club face.

The D7 short irons, on the other hand,  feature fewer power holes and optimized weighting with the aim of providing maximum feel and greater distance control.

The irons are equipped with Recoil Series Graphite Shafts, which will be available in A, R and S flexes at 65 grams. KBS Tour 80 Steel shafts are also available in R and S flexes.

The D7 irons will be available to purchase from retailers and on January 17, while the pre-sale begins on January 10. The retail price for the D7 Steel irons is $599, while the graphite irons will cost $699.
