Phil likes to dress things up only to watch them consistently come in second. See Oregon Ducks.

apparently people have misplaced the few months last year where he wasn't very good. I doubt it's the equipment, Great players can play with anything, especially when manufacturers can basically replicate what they were playing before...Haters will hate, until he wins...and then he is incredible again.Let's be clear, he is not Tiger in his prime, the guy is not that consistent. He's phenomenal, but no where near the player Tiger was in his prime...Hell, TIger isn't that player either.

The clubs are the issue anybody at that level should not blade sand wedges and push 7- pw every other shot . Look st his scores they are awful. He's a hack now and I hope he misses every cut this year.

Calm it down man! Im just as dissapointed as the next guy he left Titleist, but Id still like to see the kid play well this year. He is good for golf, and I love waching him work his way around a golf course.

And I dont know what youre definition of hack is, but Id love to be as bad as he is right now. Id be pretty okay with that...

I would say the only person in the world who can stop Rory is...Rory.

Sometimes it seems like he has better things to do than golf, a problem Tiger never had.  Although, I don't spend a lot of time with him personally, so I'm just going with what's on the internet. :swoon:

The man is young and has a girl on his arm.  And the world by the short hairs.  Let him be young and live his life.  But the whole golf focus thing, he's got to figure out in a hurry.  But he doesn't have the singular focus thing Tiger had.  The wins will come, but maybe not as many as people may have thought at first.

"He's a hack now". Wow. Can you break 90? He's extremely far from being a hack. Look in the mirror and tell us what you see. Like you wouldn't take 25,000 a year from Phil knight to play Nike equipment. Heck you and I would play it for free, let alone 25 large. So get off the kids back, and let him get his swing, AND his new clubs together. Oh yeah that HACK is STILL #1 in world ranking points. JMHO.
