Forum Thread of the Day: “Jason Day splits with Steve Williams after two months”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day concerns the split between Jason Day and caddie Steve Williams. The pair have decided to part ways after working together for two months, with Day describing their relationship as “a disconnect of old school and new school”, and our members have been discussing the split and giving their thoughts on the brief collaboration.

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.

  • jimb6golf: “Bottom line the caddie doesn’t make the player. The player controls how he plays and that includes practice, etc. to getting better. JD has a few younger kids and probably can’t practice as much as he’d like and combining that with injuries he’s just not as good as he once was. All understandable. If he wants to get better, then he needs to recommit to the game and maybe even get his original caddie/ coach back on the bag. The others at the top of the ranking are all fully committed to the game and getting physically ready to play, but it takes a lot of time, and it’s hard to do with a family I would imagine.”
  • QuigleyDU: “So can we chalk Steve up as overrated now??”
  • wkuo3: “Jason needs to be healthy again ( if that’s possible) before he could return to the winning form. He can do well on the Tour with any caddy if, he is healthy. This sport wears on you at the competitive level, next to American football. Recreational play is fine if not done excessively.”
  • munichop: “Without a healthy back he will never regain the form he once had. He is another example of what I believe is the biggest legacy of Tiger’s career- the shortening of golf careers due to the all-out commitment to bomb and gouge golf. Certain guys will last longer than others, but in general, the bodies will wear out sooner from the speeds these guys generate.”

    Jason was looking for lightning in a bottle ! Doesn’t have the patience to recommit himself even though he said he wanted to. Pulled Steve out of retirement and broke some promises he made . Probably realizes he will not be the player he once was .

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best value for a used driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rkodavey who is on the hunt for a new driver. With a budget of $200, Rkodavey is looking for a used driver from the last three or four years, and our members have been sharing their advice on where his money should go in our forums.

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.

  • gvogel: “So, so many to choose from. I would start with a Ping G400.”
  • Hertsjoatmon: “There is probably a best value in each price bracket. I found the great big bertha to be good value when I started to take golf more seriously and picked one up for a 100 about 2 years back. Plus as it’s adjustable, it’s easy to pick up extra weights and shafts to experiment with. I recently upgraded to the g400 max a few weeks ago for 200 (new) as it’s generally regarded as one of the most forgiving drivers ever made. I’ve yet to mess with the settings yet but have a heavier weight on order so that I can shorten it an inch.”
  • propredicr: “2016 TM M2. Just went through driver fitting on Trackman. Tried M5, M6, TS3, Epic Flash. M2 same shaft, just as long as M6, slightly longer than M5. Epic was next and disappointingly; the TS3 was a short knocker. Balls speeds on the newer heads were slightly higher, with slower swing speeds compared with M2. Although, distance between the M2 and M6 was negligible. Accuracy was roughly the same across the board. Bad swing=bad ball. Feel is subjective, but, like the feel of the M2, best. Guess I’ll stick with it until the head caves in.”
  • fsusmith: “Cobra LTD Pro with a bimatrix tour prototype shaft.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Main reason to play blades?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from randywall and delves into discovering why those who play blades choose to do so. With many WRXers currently playing blades, our members explain just what they find advantageous about blade irons, with a variety of reasons mentioned in the thread.

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.

  • MadGolfer76: “For me, they are just more maneuverable. Better distance control too.”
  • RobotDoctor: “I game a set of ’99 Ben Hogan Apex blades (3-PW). Not only do these blades look outstanding, but they are relatively easy to hit. These are definitely not game improvement clubs but are not clubs reserved for a tour quality swing. I prefer blades because of great feel and the ability to better control the shape and trajectory of shots. The ’99 Ben Hogan Apex blades are among the best blades I have ever played, and I have gamed a lot of different blades from several manufacturers.”
  • GolfManCollin: “The feel. Many have said that if more people played blades there would be a lot more good ball strikers.”
  • mizuno player: “For me a few reasons. They spin rate is where I need it. I don’t always release the club. The smaller size of blade helps that. Less offset helps with my big left miss. I will be buying the new MP20 MMC. See how that goes.”
  • Redjeep83: “Blades have a nice clean look and turf interaction, pretty consistent between different blades. It’s the old saying a blade is a blade, they aren’t really that different. I haven’t played a blade set for years, and I kind of want to go back, but I’ve been spoiled by players irons, so it’s been a hard choice to switch. I don’t want to lose distance and I think I probably would overall. I have a 6 iron blade in my bag that I hit on the range every once in a while with my other clubs and I find that I tend to gravitate back towards my players 6 iron instead because it gives a little more confidence and stronger flight.”
  • Warrior42111: “For the average Joe, blades are like a supermodel; fun to look at, but you have no chance in real life.”
