    Sticky golf. Jesper Parnevik won in Arizona with their putter, caused a huge demand, the company wasn’t ready for it.

    What a stick! I carried a 3W for several seasons, only changing when adjustables were introduced. Currently, they’re super cheap…snag one for fun and be rewarded!!!

    Loved the podcast. Surprised you didn’t mention Goldwin Golf. Nick Price and Billy Casper were staff pros. Their driver was the first by a “name” company to boast a size over 300 cc (310 cc).

    Had one of the hybrids. Was my go-to club for years. Sonertec made vastly underrated clubs.
