    5-Wood vs 3-Hy - Which and Why?

    A 5w is only good for a handful of days for me - it flys too high and it’s often windy here.

    Callaway MAVRIK FW Woods and Hybrids

    I have the standard Mav 3 wood with the Rogue 70X. The head is extremely forgiving across the face and it is very long. Getting on Trackman on Monday so will have some numbers then. I also have the standard Mav 4 hybrid. This things is even more forgiving, almost like cheating. Not sure it is...

    Video Chat with the Callaway Tour Van Reps

    Great job guys. Stoked to get my question asked in a live chat too - first time ever! Also, have to say that I am NOT a custom ferrules guy either, but I’m not getting onboard @JB’s ‘scrap the ferrule’ bandwagon either. Sorry! :D

    What is your personal putting grip look like? Claw? Standard?

    Prayer grip, with both thumbs alongside each other. I find it gives me the best stability and balance in the stroke.

    VA Composites SLAY Shaft Review

    Eek! Is that down to manufacturing tolerances? I don’t understand what you mean when you say there are tons of different measuring methods? Is there a thread on torque and measuring? I feel the need to educate myself now.

    So much fun to watch that, even with all the tech shenanigans. :D I see ICONs with Recoils in Shane’s future.

    Will There Be A PGA Show in 2021?

    I can’t see there being that much new product out there to promote. Release cycles will be postponed for 12 months whilst manufacturers and suppliers recover.

    Driver Loft: Poll

    An interesting poll would be “how old is your driver AND what loft is it?” If you have a driver that is a few years old, it may have a higher loft due to the #loftup movement at the time. I think lofts have gone reduced back to the 9.0/10.5 levels again in recent years.
