It's $5/hour. I'm watching to see the broadcast value. Drones, mics, live probabilities and side bets.

This could really change how golf is broadcast.

Doesn't it seem like this is something that should have been done ten years ago???

This is kind of like the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight happening well after their primes. Although, they did do that Battle of Bighorn type of stuff and both were involved in at least one match.

Have it on in 4K, the course looks amazing considering it is in the middle of the desert.

Same here.  Course beautiful

Only bad thing, too much Ernie Johnson and yacky Class clown Jacobson.  Thought announcers were to be minimum and listen to players, not announcers.  Also do without twitter reactions. 

Tiger flaring tee shots to right, not a good thing.  Hope match goes long, not short.  Be nightmare for all.

Well due to technical issues, they had to make it free for everyone and are refunding all who purchased it.

The broadcast was very well done, obviously Chuck and Sam we're over the top, but there is much to be learned from this.

1. PGA Tour needs more match play events.
2. PGA Tour needs more featured matches during televised events instead of the constant switching. Outside of Augusta, the broadcast never highlights the architecture in terms of strategy. The Match did this extremely well.

74.    24 putts.   Fairways running fast and firm.    Partners pissed.    Golf in December rocks.

Yeah, for me it would be eight holes, not nine.  I usually run out of balls somewhere around that point.

The course owner was almost as giddy as we were.   When we checked in, he said he already had 18 groups coming out today.    Found money for him.

I played Pings for years but bought PXG Gen 2s this past year. Stellar clubs.

Very soft, very forgiving with a big sweet spot. These sticks have incredible feel and are worth every penny.

Have a set of Vokey SM7s coming for Christmas. 54 and a 60, also getting a 46 to replace my PW that some lowlife lifted off a practice green last summer.  Pretty excited.

Also in the market for a new flat stick. Anyone have recos? I was a mallet guy for most of my youth, but am leaning towards a blade, but I do like a soft face. Looked at Ping Ansers a bit, as well as Odyssey

I’ve always been a Vokey fan and am in need of new wedges.  The reviews on Cleveland’s RTX4s are outstanding and the pro I occasionally take lessons from says The RTX4 wedges are better and it’s the first time in several years Cleveland has put a top wedge out there.  Does anyone have them?

As for putter... definitely get fitted.  If you live in Milwaukee do yourself a favor and see David Roesch and get fitted with the SAMputtlab.  I played a mallet until I got fitted and it changed things dramatically as I now play a Scotty blade 2 inches shorter than my old putter

I really want to look at the RTX4s. So clean.

I picked up the Vokey SM6's on clearance last year for $90 each.  I just had a round with 24 putts, including a chip in after not playing for 6 weeks.  I am not in the market for wedges.

How about you keep your humble brags to one thread? Don't ruin NM for me.

I'm happy with the bag outside of wedges and putter, which happen to be the only clubs I haven't been fit for. Wedges are a mix of Mack Daddys, putter is going to get figured out Friday at Club Champion.

Wags,

I share your enthusiasm for Vokey wedges. I carry 54 through 60 in my bag and love the precision they give me under 100 yards. My favorite sticks.

As for putters, I have a Hickory Stick hickory shaft which was a gift from my father. Beautiful piece of gear. The face is indented which makes the ball roll smoother.

If you really do want a mallet I would recommend he Bettinardis. I had a Mizuno Bettinardi which I won in a tournament in Japan which was really nice. I gave it to a colleague as I already had my Hickory Stick.

As above, I got a full bag fit at club champion. They carry the Cleveland wedges. That's what I ended up buying. Haven't hit them yet.
