    Taylor Made has really struggled to find itself during its lifetime, first as a metal driver company, then to almost a 100% wedge only company, and then in the mid to late 90s they dipped their toe in the iron aspect of things. Now, they are back to being one of the leading manufacturers of drivers and irons, and after being on staff with them for almost 2 years, there isn't a big enough amount of coin to make me play 14 of their clubs at one time.

    Amazingly enough, some of their best products are more than 5+ years old. The first RAC combo iron set they offered, with cavity back from 3 through 6 iron, and then muscle back in the 7 through PW; their Forged 300 series, which first put them head to head with Titleist and Mizuno in terms of forged irons, and then their best driver before the R7: The Burner with the Bubble Shaft (good luck trying to find that shaft to replace if you end up breaking it).

    ------

    There is not 1 player on any tour today that could hit a hickory shafted club without watching it shatter to pieces. The evolution of the golf swing has gone from the "sweep swing" which ended with Ben Hogan to the 2 plane, striking down on the ball swing you see most players attempt today.

    The game will continue to evolve. Technology and equipment will continue to attempt to level the playing field, but the far superior players will remain just that.

    My question is, who will replace Tiger? Has that player even been born yet?


    But, to not completely derail the thread, why do hot dogs come in packages of 8, and hot dog buns usually come in packages of 10? To even them out, you'll end up with 40 a piece...
    Do you think the technology is going to stall at some point? Do you find the most technical advance has happened with the clubs or the ball? Do you ever see the PGA adopting a policy that limits the advances, particularly in the ball?

    Would value your opinion since you are an insider. By the way, I still have a persimmon, and I still take it to the range from time to time, just to see if I can still swing it.

    I'd add Ashton Kutcher to that list. He has no brains, no talent, nothing! Yet he's famous.

    Well that's more like every glance.

    do golf irons have any iron in them anymore? just wondering. i thought they are being made out of some kind of composite material. but that may just be the shaft.

    Why do they call it taking a dump when you don't take anything?

    That's got nothing to do with modesty and everything to do with environment.
