anybody ask him what went wrong w/PXG?

It's not a coincidence that none of the PXG staffers are killing it on tour.  I heard that Zach Johnson's caddie is struggling to make ends meet.  Maybe Chris realized the arrows affect the Indian more than some people think.
If I remember correctly they can never get a driver to work for Zach, that’s certainly not helping a short distance guy.
I think that at least at one tournament last year Zack was gaming a Titleist driver where there were some painted silver dots along the sole to make it look like PXG weight screws.  At least to pass the glance test if it made it on TV.  Someone posted a pic I think it was maybe here or at another site.
Ryder cup?
Honestly I don't remember what tournament it was at I just remember having a good laugh when I saw it.

Yes, they're very good.

I guess this year is the year of the Scotty Cameron all black no paint fill putter. And this one is 360 grams. And the more I see these MP-18's  I might have to go demo soon.

Doesn't look beefy enough to be 360.  Would love to know head weight.

Capt has good taste!  Go dawgs!

Check the full bag photo. It’s got weights ported into the sole - almost certainly to get the head weight to 360

Good eye.  I was wondering if there wasn't a bit of tungsten in the bottom.

As a Circa 62 lover Im very jealous of that putter.

One of my employees was looking over my shoulder when I opened the thread and the words out of his mouth were "I would do some pretty questionable things for that putter" and I don't know that I can disagree with him.

Bent 3W?

Bending a glued 3W a little to get to certain specs isn't that uncommon for Tour players, but I'm surprised he went with the T13 and bent it back to what a standard M2 3W would have been.

Take some offset out of the head? Not that there is a lot in a 3w
