    I don't think so. I know this is a bit off topic but, I think they would win more if they had to earn a living just by playing and not all of the other money they get. I think many of them are satisfied with just playing because of what they earn without winning. Love to see them play if they were hungry to maintain the life style they have, but without all of the "other" money in the bank. Case in point = Phil making $37 million a year without winning anything. Take that $37 million (2018) in endorsements away.

    Take this away and see what they do;

    Rory $34 million in endorsements in 2018
    Jordan $30 million in endorsements in 2018
    Tiger $42 million in endorsements in 2018

    Tiger earned $1.3 million in 2018. Huge difference if he didn't have that other $42 million up front.

    I think it could matter. There is a variety of blade shapes out there on irons, but they kind of fall in 4 categories that I see: a strait muscle with weight evenly across the bottom, a muscle with more weight in the middle, a muscle with more weight towards the toe and heel, and a perimeter weight cavity back. If your company didn't have you're muscle shape on a giving year that could be problematic. I also think some of these guys are more sensitive to changes in equipment than others.

    I didn't think it matters all that much until I saw the performance of JR this year. I believe Justin Rose has taken a major step back with his change in equipment.
