Those yardage stampings are so cool. Never noticed them before.

Edit: I meant meters. No way I hit it longer than he does.

Nice to see a pro's stock yardages. His are actually very reasonable. 142 9-iron, 195 5-iron, that is realistic.

Also is his Toulon basically just the stock San Diego?

I gotta think that's meters.  Those are very close to my numbers, but I'm pretty sure he's a level or two past me in length...Good news is if a used set of his ever turns up, I could probably use the irons no problem as a yardage guide!

Going out on a limb here and saying... Def Meters. Dude can move it. Either way, great idea to stamp em.

in yards:
9 -155
8 - 170
7 - 184
6 - 199
5 - 213
4 - 228
3 - 240

I assume these numbers make the people that thought the stamped numbers were yards feel much worse about themselves. haha

Still rocking the older Cally XR woods. He must really like them to have not switched to the Rogue or even the Epic.

I love my Epic Driver. And when I got it I was driving the ball well and felt I picked up yards over my XR16 which is now my back up. But by the end of the season I was giving the XR16 some play time I'm pretty sure the
distances were pretty close. It could be that he doesn't like the feel of the composite heads. The stampings have to be in meters.
