Th tweet said, he was the first to put them into play on you.  Didn't Sean O'Hair put them in play?  I'm surprised only one guy has them in play.

I could see myself having a set of these when my swing is a bit off.  top-line is a bit thick, but i'm liking the lack of offset.

The set O'Hair is using is a prototype, not the finished design.

If it's not just the photography, they look to have less offset than the retail R9 Tp, which would be super nice.  Better not be "b" heads grrrrrrr.

Funny I thought the saaaaaame thing.  Like chubby girls at 3:00 am... whatever get thes job done.  If those are going to be the retail version of the "tour" heads, they are going to sell like hotcakes.  Hopefully they are forged and can be bent.  Tehey look deep - I have a 'thing' for deep faced irons .
