Forum Thread of the Day: “The dynamics of the partnership between Jason Day and Steve Williams”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from MountainGoat who delves into the recently formed partnership between Jason Day and Steve Williams. MountainGoat mentions how their collaboration looks to extend far beyond a regular player/caddie relationship, citing how Williams appears to be “instructing Jason on what shots to hit,” as well as “suggesting equipment changes” — in the form of a new softer ball. Our members discuss MountainGoat’s theory and share their thoughts on the partnership.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JAMH03: “Guess JD is a “we” guy. Which totally makes sense if SW has spent 20+ years with some of the world’s elite he does have relevant experience to draw on for JD or most anybody I reckon.”
  • 00steven: “This might be the right thing to save Jason Day’s career. Not that it’s horrible, but he has a lot of potential. Seems to me he’s trying hard to impress Stevie too.”
  • bspn: “The mental side of the game has always been one of Day’s biggest weaknesses. His pre-shot visualization and breathing routine is painful to watch at times, so if SW can help anywhere it will be cutting out the crap and just hitting the shot – Day clearly has the talent so getting rid of some of the BS and just playing golf might be good for him.”
  • dalehead: “If Stevie can get Jason on the right track I’ll give him his due. Until then, I’ll continue to believe it’s easy to build a reputation as a great caddy when you’ve toted the bags of players like Ray Floyd, Greg Norman, and Tiger Woods.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “Jason Day is one of those guys that benefits more so than the average tour player from a great caddie. Many of the legends of the game consider Steve Williams one of the best caddies, if not the best. It has the potential to be a great relationship.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about Titleist’s T200 irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the performance of Titleist’s T200 irons. WRXer ‘SwooshLT’ reaches out for some feedback on the clubs and our members have been obliging with plenty of positive reviews of the irons.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • lmhitter: “I have them as part of a combo set with T100s. I am north of 60, 5 hcp at the moment, and carry the 7i about 158yds. I like them. Very good sole interaction with the turf, good profile for confidence with a classic shape. They don’t look too game improvement. They feel is great if you hit the center!”
  • bigd231: “I got fitted into the t200s 5-48° about 4 months ago, and they’ve been great, handicap has dropped from 20-15 in the same period. They’re fantastic sitting behind the ball, not too small to be intimidating but not too big that it’s off-putting. Plenty of forgiveness as well, I’ve hit plenty that barley it the grooves it’s that far out in the toe but have only lost 10-15 yards rather than 30+. I’m 26 and carry the 7 iron 160 yards. I originally had concerns that they might be too low spin and struggle to hold greens, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the relative stopping power through the whole set.”
  • Jjones519a: “I demoed them for 2 rounds. I didn’t like them at first but hit a ton of greens, so they grew on me. I play T100s which I love and don’t have trouble with from 5 down but would consider a t200 in the 3 and 4 irons maybe.”

Cutting down driver vs Choking down – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been responding to an interesting question posed by WRXer ‘Vater’. ‘Vater’ asks:

“What’s the difference between just placing your hands an inch lower on the grip vs getting an inch cut off the butt of the shaft?”

And our members have been discussing the two different options and sharing their takes in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • TourSpoon: “Even when you get to your playing length, there are times when you may want to grip down for even more control. If you grip down every time just to get to your playing length, you lose that option.”
  • ecfritts: “I’m 5’7″, but I like most of my clubs -1/2″, even my driver. Doesn’t seem like much but it just feels so much better…to me. If I’m not mistaken Rickie Fowler plays his clubs 1/2″ short.”
  • animalgolfs: “If your desire is bombs away- cut it down. If your desire is accuracies- choke down.”
  • chippa13: “I have cut 1.5 off my driver, and I also choke down almost to the shaft. After many experiments with lead tape amount and placement, I am finally hitting driver well (the few times I actually try to use it) after years of being Steve Sax with it.”

What irons are left-handers playing? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our lefty members have been dishing on the irons currently in their bag. WRXer ‘1221’ is in the market for a new set and wants to see what other left-handers have been finding success with, and our members have been sharing their clubs in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • dclccoritti: “Titleist…all blades. Love the look of the new TM P7-CB’s.”
  • LeftyMatt24: “I’m in T100s bent weak. They are an awesome middle ground between blades and players. Titleist offers their full line in left and right-handed. The new SEL from Mizuno is a good option. Can’t go wrong with Srixon z785 either.”
  • The_Champ: “Ping Blueprint.”
  • Llefty: “Srixon 585 3-PW and Bridgestone JGR Tour B HF2 5-AW.”
