  • Xander Schauffele Driver Fails

    First tour player to have his driver fail the CT test since R&A started testing last year.

    This was done on Tuesday and he had to find a replacement.

    Despite what is being reported elsewhere, the test was a CT test.

          They didn't say overtly, but based on his reaction to being randomly chosen, my guess would be he had that driver in his bag for awhile.

              When your equipment fails a random test, the best defense is usually not "Well what about all the other illegal heads out there?!"

                  Interesting stuff.
                  Not sure I like Xander's response to the whole thing, but I guess it's not like the players would know their head is illegal...or would they?

                    Totally.

                    You got caught, and you knew it all along, because if you didn't you wouldn't care about anyone else.

                      They darn well better. That's their job, along with the team of others in their stable.

                          he makes himself look like a cheater

                          I would think more would fail testing, given that these faces are supposedly engineered thousands of times over to exceed the legal limits (but still fall within the limit tolerance)

                              So who is to blame here for the failed test?

                              Xander or Callaway? Wouldn't Xander trust what he's been given?
