Yet another tour player using the 745 over the 765. Srixon should take the hint. 745's look a lot better!

45's are much more workable than the 65's, personal experience. My handicap is running from 2.6 to 3.2 in the last year and I chose the 65's. Tour players are just a different breed than me

X EE O makes a great product, very high quality. Just doesn't pass the eye test IMO

He's XXIO's flagship guy, and he plays two clubs. They would make him anything he wants them to, customize any club to the most minute detail, and all he can find that he likes is a driver and fairway.

Strange to see that he's in the very small minority of guys playing standard sole RTX-3s.

Pronounced like Sexy-oh with a Z. You canít make this stuff up.
I like the idea of that putter in theory but would never use it. I havenít seen him use it on TV that way either. I wonder if he would ever stand behind it and line up his putt on TV that way? Also, isnt Ernie Els known for his bad putting?
