#1 – the rule is the rule, ANY ACTION after address (does not have to ground the club), by the player that caused the ball to move is a penalty. period. It should have been given to him on the 6th tee box.
Unfair and ridiculous rule? YES. Can you imagine if it happened to someone like Landry and the impact that could have on his career?
Change the rule for the putting surface only. Too many problems when greens stimp above 13.
Also, change the rule about the tiny little hazards (divots) in the middle of the fairway after a perfect drive.
The playing of the game, the equipment, the courses and what is at stake has evolved, so should the rules.
USGA is always right

USGA was right now shut it.

Jul 4, 2016 at 12:30 pm
Nice rant but……The USGA was wrong on so many levels. Typical of the USGA. They’re a train wreck of an association.
Sep 12, 2016 at 11:39 am
But how can you prove that DJ himself caused the ball to move. Normally, if you ground your putter and the ball moves a little, that’s enough to say that he caused it to move. But there was definitely a break in the action in between his grounding the putter next to the ball and him hovering the putter above the ground behind the ball.
The bottom line is that the USGA cannot expect that certain rule to ever be fair when they trick out the greens to run 14+ on the stimp and roll them until they are like runways. The rule needs a change, especially for that tournament.
Divots need a looking at too, although this week I don’t think we saw that since it was mostly ball in hand. I couldn’t agree more with the evolution of the game. I don’t know many people that play truly by the rules of golf outside of the pros. Part of that is because their courses are in so much better condition than the ones the average golfer plays and I get that. But the closer we can get to bridging the gap, the better.
The USGA needs to bring in some young blood… someone under the age of 40 to help with amending the rules. It’s been an old man’s game for too long and I fear we’re losing the sport on a recreational level as far as bringing new players to the game. Grab a guy who’s 30-40 years old, who played on tour but is no longer good enough, to be a special advisor to the rules committee.
Jun 20, 2016 at 4:03 pm
Is it just me or did anyone ellsomiss a picture of any of his irons in the post? I see lots of driver, 3 wood, wedges, and putter pics, but no irons. And I could’ve sworn that in the coverage I saw a close up of an iron that looked more like a Srixon z755. What do you think?
Jul 3, 2016 at 5:58 pm
Is was a sterling silver prototype
Jun 20, 2016 at 3:10 pm
I feel the way the ruling was handled yesterday may have been one of the biggest screw ups I have ever witnesses and afterwards the people on the channel really didn’t know what to say. I think they did say at first and were told to knock it off on national TV. That being said, the actions taken by the rules committee were horrible. There needs to be a new rule put into place so if this should happen again it will handled better than this complete mess! They rule one way one day and rule another way another day, this is nuts!

could have sworn I saw him using the m2 driver
Jun 19, 2016 at 3:05 am
Hi my name is Dustin Johnson and just to clarify on the comment string, the position of my left hand at the top of my swing is called a bowed left wrist which shuts the club face on the top of my swing. It helps me reduce the amount of wrist action on the down swing and through impact which helps me eliminate the two way miss. It helps players like Graeme MacDowell, the legend Lee Trevino and I pull down as hard as we want on the down swing and come in a little over the top without slicing it. It doesn’t pull hook left because my hands are way ahead of the club head at impact. In order for us bowed left wrist guys to be successful with this move we must have the left hand lead and extend beyond impact and have clubs that look square or open at address. At address I like to look at a club that absolutely looks open faced because it’ll be a little shut at impact because of my bowed left wrisy. If I start with a square faced club or a club that is weighted toward the heal then it will be more shut at impact therefore result in a pulled shot or pull hook. The reason I put all the weights on the toe is to further help keep the club face from shutting down at impact. The secret really for us bowed left wrist guys is is to have our woods in the most open face setting or custom bend open if possible. Some more than others it just depends on the brand because some brands look more open or closed than others. The reason I use more loft on my driver and 3 wood is because the bowed left wrist creates less loft, lower trajectory, and higher spin through impact which is undesirable. This is why Lee Trevino hit the ball so low; his bowed left wrist and no technology that could help him produce a higher launch. So, more loft with the driver and 3 wood gives me the desired trajectory and spin rate that optimizes my accuracy and distance. I hope this gives you some insight on my woods and how having a bowed left wrist requires open faced – fade set woods for me.

Ok, you can go stroke yourself on your own time. Otherwise, post something relevant or don’t post at all. Thanks!
Jun 20, 2016 at 1:24 pm
Thanks MB: I found this helpful, as I was wondering about the wrists and the lofts as well. It seems strange to me that the weights on the driver would be set to neutral. Any thoughts?
Jun 21, 2016 at 12:10 pm
Just having fun. I would venture to say that close to 100% of all elite golfers care as much if not more on how the club sits at address vs performance. If it doesn’t look right to them at address they won’t like it and becomes a mental hurdle. That driver is face angle adjustable from closed to open faced so probably in the case of Dustin Johnson’s driver, if he’s really playing it neutral weighted, he’s probably doing so because the neutral weight setting gave him the best results for the face angle at address that he likes.

Rules official please, I count 15 clubs. 3 woods, 7 irons, 4 wedges and a putter. Dq DJ
Jun 18, 2016 at 8:30 pm
you might want to count again
Jun 20, 2016 at 12:52 pm
Oh Oh!! Busted!!! Steve can’t count! Hate to see his scorecard! Hope someone else keeps track of his shots when they play!
Jul 4, 2016 at 11:18 pm
Reminds me of a guy I used to golf with, he got so used to shaving off a stroke a hole that it became a habit. One day on a par-3 he missed the green , bounced off a tree , rolled across the green straight in the hole! He just HAD to put it down as a zero, his pencil refused to write a 1 .
Apr 3, 2016 at 9:43 pm
Anyone know if DJ plays standard length clubs or +.25/.5 over standard? Sometimes it will say on the WITB (I think it does in Bubba’s witb). Anyways, not huge detail but just wondering, he is obviously taller and he looks like he plays shorter irons with his aggressive stance (knees bent a lot).
Aug 17, 2016 at 8:51 pm
Hoping to know this info too.

DJ Did not play with the PSi Forged irons. He has gone back to is MB Irons
Feb 22, 2016 at 7:37 am
If a closed face player doesn’t move his path left of his face, they hit a pull hook. You don’t get on tour playing a pull hook. So yes, Dustin does play a fade, which is common knowledge to both players & fans. His driver is set one click towards higher, which means the face is closed and the effective loft is 11.25. If he had weight in the toe of his 3 wood, which I doubt, it was because they again closed the face to add effective loft and the toe weight was used to counter the hook spin imparted by the closed face. Most likely his 3 wood weights were split to the edges, one in the toe and one in the heel, to provide maximum forgiveness. If players had a better grasp on these club fitting concepts it would not only help them dial in their sticks, it would fundamentally make them stronger players. Closed face fades are always stronger than open faced fades.

who are you talking too?
Apr 3, 2016 at 3:49 pm
Dustin johnson plays a draw, I watched him on the range for 2 hours
Apr 5, 2016 at 9:20 pm
He definitely hits it left…

You need a life if you were watching one guy for 2 hours at the range

is this a custom painted shaft? i cannot locate a black version of the 661 2.0 tour spec.
Feb 3, 2016 at 2:38 pm
Those wedges look much better than the originals
Feb 3, 2016 at 8:12 am
3 wood (17*) and 5 wood (19*) only 2* apart. Interesting.
Can anyone explain to me what the benefit of having 2 woods so close in loft could possibly be?
Feb 5, 2016 at 9:35 am
Im sure the 17 is opened all the way up playing closer to 15.5-16, and then you consider that all of these guys heads (especially TM) are bent and tweaked to specific lofts anyhow so who knows what the actual lofts are.
I would guess there is more like a 3.5-4 degree difference between the two depending on the settings and what they have been bent to.
Feb 19, 2016 at 8:09 pm
No, they are not opened up at all. Stop pretending to know something you know nothing about.
Apr 3, 2016 at 3:11 pm
Look at the pics… maybe not “all the way”, but the 3HL is set to a lower than standard loft and the 5w is set to higher than standard loft, at least according to the pics.
Also, are the M2s in his bag or is he tinkering?
Feb 2, 2016 at 5:33 pm
It will be interesting to see if DJ puts the M2 into play.
It would also be interesting — and I have absolutely zero evidence this is true apart from what is apparent from photos and timing — if Taylor Made arranged for a Dustin Johnson “test” to coincide with the weekend rollout of the M2. Personally, I would think it extremely cool, and good for TM if DJ was really interested in the M2. I like to see companies putting out a wide array of stuff that is all tour-quality and not some good stuff plus a whole lotta schmata for the big box stores.
Feb 21, 2016 at 6:53 pm
Isn’t him having the M2 in his bag evidence that he has put it in play?
Feb 1, 2016 at 9:27 pm
Love that the driver is set neutral high and all the weight is on the toe on the 3 wood for a guy who fades the ball, counterintuitive.
Feb 2, 2016 at 4:39 pm
Don’t think DJ fades the ball. He’s well known for how shut his club face is at the top of his swing and probably overdraws it with a 3w.
Apr 5, 2016 at 9:22 pm
Dustin hits it left all day long.
Feb 1, 2016 at 9:22 pm
Agreed. Taylormade looks lazy…
I like how DJ still rocks the 2014 TP mb.
Feb 1, 2016 at 9:11 pm
Pretty sad that the Taylormade website still shows their Tour Staff as playing the R15 and Aeroburners. You’d think with all their money, they could pay someone to update their website…
