    Is there an “after market” hosel for Ping? Shouldn’t the large minus move his driver to 7.5 degrees of loft?

      The manufacturers have many different adjustable hosels. Most of the time the description of the club is the loft stamped on the club and the actual loft. The tour departments get the “B” stock heads by specs. The stores get the clubs as close to the standards as possible. Tony wants 7 deg, so they’ll get a head that specs as low lofted below the 9 deg head as possible and adjust it from there. Also, lowering the loft opens the face so they’ll adjust it more if Tony wants it more open for his fade. I know TM has hosels that max out loft change at 1,1.5, and 2 deg so you can match the open or closed face to the loft. I’ve seen Callaway long drive 5 deg heads with a -2 option where the stock one only has -1 deg option. Realize that they pull heads for the pros that fail to match the printed specs so they can get any off spec head they want without having to make it for them. It may say 9 deg but might spec out between 8 and 10 for example and then adjust it from there. Or weight or lie angle or exact center of the sweet spot etc.

    Tony has the tools to win (or at the very worst a consistent top 5 guy). He should have a lot more wins by now but only has one (Korn Ferry/Web.com wins don’t count). He reminds me a lot of David Duval in the mid-90s.

      Agreed he should have more wins by now but not sure about the Duval comparison. At one point DD won 11 times in 34 tournaments. Little different then Tony trying to get number 2.

“I used to do the WITB more often here. It’s been a REALLY long time. Maybe more than 10 years, and I, unfortunately have only 1 year where I played more than 20 rounds in a year since then. I’m gonna play more… a lot more in the coming years as I’m turning 48 this year and want to have a damn good birthday week at Bandon when I turn 50.

My goal is sub 5 handicap by then. I have still been mostly playing i3 blades and TM 300s. But I want to convert to ‘legal grooves’, so I just picked up my first new set of irons in maybe 15 years. The i210’s… so here’s my current WITB.”

Driver: TaylorMade M4 (10.5 degrees turned a bit to “lower” as I like a slightly open face at address)
Shaft: Ozik Matrix 80M Black Tie X @ 44.5″

3-wood: TaylorMade R9 paintbreak TI (15 degrees)
Shaft: Tipped Ozik Matrix 80M Black Tie X

5-wood: Tour Edge Exotics “ladies edition” (18 degrees)
Shaft: Tipped OG Aerotech SS85 X

Irons: Ping i210 (3-9i)
Shafts: KBS Tour 130X

Wedges: Ping Glide 3.0 46 @ 47*, 54 @ 53*
Shafts: KBS Tour 130X

Callaway PM grind 60*, shaft TBD

(note – this is cold weather setup.  I plan to drop the 3 wood and add my 2019 PM grind 58* and 64* with S400 when it warms up and I need it.)

Putter: Scotty Cameron JAT, TaylorMade Ghost Marenello 355g, both at 34″.

The JAT is somewhere else and due to Covid I haven’t been able to get it, but as soon as I can, I’ll put it into play.

Grip: Stock Pistol

Golf Ball: I love the Callaway HX balls in the wind, but will play most any premium urethane ball that is on sale.

Grips: Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord BCT midsize with 2x extra tape.
