Forum Thread of the Day: “The dynamics of the partnership between Jason Day and Steve Williams”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from MountainGoat who delves into the recently formed partnership between Jason Day and Steve Williams. MountainGoat mentions how their collaboration looks to extend far beyond a regular player/caddie relationship, citing how Williams appears to be “instructing Jason on what shots to hit,” as well as “suggesting equipment changes” — in the form of a new softer ball. Our members discuss MountainGoat’s theory and share their thoughts on the partnership.

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.

  • JAMH03: “Guess JD is a “we” guy. Which totally makes sense if SW has spent 20+ years with some of the world’s elite he does have relevant experience to draw on for JD or most anybody I reckon.”
  • 00steven: “This might be the right thing to save Jason Day’s career. Not that it’s horrible, but he has a lot of potential. Seems to me he’s trying hard to impress Stevie too.”
  • bspn: “The mental side of the game has always been one of Day’s biggest weaknesses. His pre-shot visualization and breathing routine is painful to watch at times, so if SW can help anywhere it will be cutting out the crap and just hitting the shot – Day clearly has the talent so getting rid of some of the BS and just playing golf might be good for him.”
  • dalehead: “If Stevie can get Jason on the right track I’ll give him his due. Until then, I’ll continue to believe it’s easy to build a reputation as a great caddy when you’ve toted the bags of players like Ray Floyd, Greg Norman, and Tiger Woods.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “Jason Day is one of those guys that benefits more so than the average tour player from a great caddie. Many of the legends of the game consider Steve Williams one of the best caddies, if not the best. It has the potential to be a great relationship.”

  • sharkiesj: “Confirming groove set of i3 Blades from the Ping Tour van. And a freakin’ Tour finish PLD putter. Then I’d take the putter and smash the inside of the van to smithereens. I’d throw the putter back and say, Yo, I’ll see you next week at the next tour stop. This van better be fixed, and my putter fixed too. JC, that outta get them to release the PLD.”
  • cmagnusson: “Cobra truck, CB/MBs in a custom made One-Length set. Either that or go to the Odyssey truck and get a custom made White Hot Pro #1 arm-lock with a Stroke-lab shaft.”

  • martinritch1: “I have a specific shopping list. 1. Callaway 10.5 triple diamond head. 2. Taylormade GAPR lo bonded head with a Nippon Modus GOST shaft. 3. Vokey Raw 60 low bounce K. 4. Taylormade Hi-Toe 60 low bounce. 5. Scotty Cameron Circle T X5 flow neck.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Anti-hook hybrid?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from kgeisler13 who is looking to replace his current 3-iron with an anti-hook hybrid. Our members give their thoughts on the subject to kgeisler13, with Ping’s G410, as well as Callaway’s ’19 Apex proving to be popular suggestions.

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.

  • Joelsim: “Ping G410. I’ve hit about 60 shots with my new one and not a single hook. I sold the G400 as it was prone to hooking.”
  • Banker: “G410 flat setting, KBS hybrid 95x. Swing as hard as you want.”
  • Golfingguru11: “Callaway apex has the highest toe and most open face of any I’ve seen since the original idea pro.”
  • eaglestan66: “Titleist 818 H1 can be very fade biased if weight and lie angles are set correctly. This is one of the reasons I purchased the 3 and 4-hybrid version.”
  • phil75079: “The Callaway ’19 Apex hybrid. Everyone who has hit it agrees it is neutral to fade biased.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your optimal wedge set-up?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ClevelandKyle who brings up the subject of wedge set-ups. In the thread, our members discuss what wedges they like to carry as well as answering ClevelandKyle’s question: “If you had to carry two wedges for the rest of your life, what would they be (degree, make, model) and why?”

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.

  • SEP1006: “PW / GW – 0311P PXG GEN 2, same as irons. 54/12 and 58/06 – Ping Glide Stealth 2.0: best wedges I’ve ever played by far, very versatile.”
  • cardoustie: “Like the OP, I keep going back to old school Vokey sm2’s .. 50/54/60. TVD m grinds. No wedge spins it as well or feels as good. I am ordering a Glide 3.0 eye 2 58 though.”
  • manoagolfer: “Vokey 48, 54, 58 and 62. Just added the 62 for the short stuff around the greens and steep faced bunkers.”
  • BCULAW: “RTX4 Raw 46 mid, 50 mid, 56 full, 60 low. After playing Vokeys almost exclusively for the last ten years or so, these Clevelands have been a real eye-opener. Spin is greatly increased, and the grind on the 60 is stellar. Highly recommended.”
