@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:24 AM) Looks GREAT, TOO.
@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:22 AM) First ball out of the box-- Back of the net! Second, straight little draw. As Kenny Perry once said: " I Kain't miss it!" Really haven't hit a driver like that in years!
@  J13 : (12 September 2014 - 09:45 AM) Bio Cell is a hidden gem. Heard Cobra is bringing the HEAT next year.
@  ROBOPTI : (12 September 2014 - 09:44 AM) Bing ... Bio Cell + is AWESOME ... LOVE !!!! mine
@  BingHogan : (11 September 2014 - 08:29 PM) Hit a Cobra Bio Cell driver today. Very underrated. On the BUY list next month.

@  BingHogan : (10 September 2014 - 09:24 AM) Send some of that rain down to California! Central Valley will be gone by next summer if it doesn't rain/snow. Towns without water...
@  rfdegen : (10 September 2014 - 07:31 AM) We're still playing golf here - in between thunderstorms. Record rains in WI. Sucks!
@  TJR : (09 September 2014 - 09:30 PM) I need to play. Been going to the range, but my swing sucks right now. Playing crooked stick in 2 weeks if the weather is decent.
@  MN NICE : (09 September 2014 - 07:27 PM) NFL is BACK!
@  BingHogan : (09 September 2014 - 03:29 PM) Anybody still playing golf out there!? Man, it's dead.
@  youngwaldo : (09 September 2014 - 10:52 AM) Got mine yesterday. Going to test them tomorrow.
@  rfdegen : (09 September 2014 - 08:58 AM) Got my sleeve of test balls and will be testing them tonight, if it doesn't rain again! Crap! We're flooding around here these days. Enough already!
@  burniemac : (09 September 2014 - 07:42 AM) Just got a sleeve of the Titleist test balls in the mail yesterday
@  BingHogan : (08 September 2014 - 06:16 PM) Sleeves that have been handed out. Looks like more spin probably due to lower spinning drivers coming out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:56 PM) Are we talking the New Titleist sleeves that have been sent out?
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) @BingHogan is this ball from a New Company or just a new Proto for next years possible selections?
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 10:10 PM) Testing a new ball prototype tomorrow. Sworn to not to loose it. Just hit it and see...
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 09:58 PM) Maura Passing Point with KBS V -- Sweet! Hit 200 and couldn't put em down. Great turf interaction and feel.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 09:27 PM) I was talking to someone today and mentioned that this is probably the first time I've been completely satisfied with the clubs in my bag
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:43 PM) Decided to go through ALL my bags and start over from driver to wedges.
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) PP - large cavity. Doesn't have the new CB yet. Also the new blade. Really expensive, though. Might have to break out the new MP 69's.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 02:30 PM) Should feel buttery soft. Blade or CB?
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 09:53 AM) Hitting a Miura with KBS V later today to add to the confusion :rolleyes:

@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 10:20 PM) A zinger is probably right. He's the only one on the GC that knows what he's talking about.
@  TJR : (28 August 2014 - 04:14 PM) Azinger said he could fix Tiger in 10 minutes...
@  youngwaldo : (28 August 2014 - 09:40 AM) Butch is slowing down so taking Tiger will not happen.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:16 AM) I've heard the Grant Waite rumors as well, but that would be so similar to how Foley teaches. That's not to say that Grant couldn't teach him better even with a similar model or style.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:15 AM) Butch already said no and Tiger isn't going to take the left overs. I could see Claude III as an outside possibility otherwise, but I doubt it because of that.
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 08:57 AM) Gotta be one of the Harmon's. Or all of them. It's not the coach...
@  J13 : (28 August 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm taking myself out of consideration to be tigers next coach lol
@  ballen : (28 August 2014 - 04:56 AM) I hear Grant Waite will be Tigers next.......
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) RIP Tours - unbelievably good!
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:37 PM) Tiger maybe running out of options. Maybe Leadbetter :rolleyes:
@  HossOnMoss : (27 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Tiger holds interviews for the position. Breed walks up and says, "Come on, Tiger! LET'S DO THIS!!!!" Tiger and I are thinking the same thing....BRUTAL. Haha
@  TWshoot67 : (26 August 2014 - 07:54 PM) Heck Tiger doesn't need to be with Michael Breed he's already a weekly discussion about the golf swing even when he's not playing on the Golf Channel....
@  Golferrob22 : (26 August 2014 - 06:36 PM) I'd put some money on Bob May! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
@  TJR : (26 August 2014 - 06:26 PM) How about Michael Breed? Tiger could be featured on a weekly segment of "The Golf Fix"
@  HossOnMoss : (26 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) I figured it was coming. Who's up next for the position? My money is on Chuck Cook.
@  BingHogan : (25 August 2014 - 02:21 PM) Still would like Tiger to get to at LEAST 18 Majors! That will tick off Chamblee.
@  TWshoot67 : (25 August 2014 - 01:55 PM) Tiger and Foley are done. The split has been announced by both sides1

@  MWP : (08 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) @TW Since Fowler put work into his swing with Butch and cut his hair my opinion on him has completely changed, I'd like to see him squeak this one out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:08 PM) Although Steve Striker winning would be pretty cool too...
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:07 PM) Is anyone else pulling for Rickie Fowler this weekend?
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 05:13 PM) He should be smarter than that TW. That's my point. If he's hurt. Quit
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:11 PM) he's probably going to gut it out hurt himself some more just so he don't have to listen to media and naysayers who say he's faking his injuries
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:10 PM) he's already posted an 81 @ The Open few years back.
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 02:38 PM) Pushed putt. Pulled back. Time to WD. No way will he post 80
@  rfdegen : (08 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) Not contrary, from someone with a bad back, just amazed he's playing this week. Un-freakin-believable.
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:08 PM) It's all what have you done lately in todays world. Sorry I just don't give up on Tiger so easy. I'm a fanboy! lol
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I love how people are so contrary, less then 10 months ago Tiger had 5 wins and was #1 WGR. Now it's like he should just toss it in an quit his career is over, LOL
@  Qwagmire : (07 August 2014 - 10:47 AM) any guesses when the spasms happen? I got front nine Friday
@  KyCutter : (07 August 2014 - 08:27 AM) I suspect the "spasms" are creeping back into the picture.
@  HossOnMoss : (06 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) He did say it was spasms...real or not. Anyone that didn't think he would tee it up this week is nuts. There's no way he was missing the PGA once he made his statement sunday.

What is the deal with the titleist M grind wedges and how do they differ from the retail Vokeys?

I have never had any luck what so ever with Vokeys wedges......

Seem to be a bit overrated IMO....,

No custom grinds just personalization..... The grinds can't be altered from the mold like say the Miraflore rout but just got one today and the M grind 60 ( 2 degrees week ) is a serious weapon of attack..... Unbelievably versatile and maybe the best wedge if ever played ( and I'm not a vokey fan)

The conforming grooves made absolutely no difference to me except maybe trajectory on mid range shots but the grind of the wedge allowed me to stop the ball from the short side with loft rather than spin which is much more predictable IMO......

I give the wedge an A+

It's filthy and I'll probably game it day one

What....you mean Bob Vokey doesn't do all these custom grinds himself....not even for Tour players? :lol:

Why, looking at the Titleist ads, I thought he did 'em all!

Great find Zinger...thanks!

I think that Titleist is very smart to bring on a young guy like Aaron Dill. Vokey is still very hands on, but he can't stay out on tour working for Titleist forever. Having a young guy who can spend years training under a guy like Bob Vokey so that he can take over the reins one day is really smart on their part. Otherwise, you end up like other companies who die a slow death on tour when a long time veteran leaves or you are like others who have no stability because they change or never have a "wedge guy" on staff that the players really come to know and trust. With Titleist, they have that in Vokey and are building that with Dill to pass on someday when needed. There are several reasons why Titleist is the #1 wedge on tour and this is a pretty big one. As much as Titleist is known for their golf balls or Cameron putters, the wedge really IMO is what they do the best of all their offerings.

Absolutely right on the money here.

At no time was i under the illusion that Bob Vokey would be within 2500 miles of the wedge they built for me.... I do however believe that at some time Vokey ground a wedge for a tour player and it was well received and gained popularity with other players.... He probably then called it an M grind for whatever reason and gave the basic specs to titleist to machine them out by the thousands.....

Like I said never been a Vokey fan but they got it right with this grind....

Funny thing is I first found out about the M grind from a buddy who played them in college I think and said he was getting them from Japan?? I wonder why Titleist would release the good stuff (IMO) in Japan but not the states???

Anyone know where to get the M grinds other than Wedge Works???

The M stands for "most favorite" grind I believe because of the fact that it is used by a lot of players since it works for a wide variety of players under various conditions. Some of the standard retail Vokey wedges now feature the M Grind in particular loft and bounces. Other than that, you can only get them through the Vokey Wedge Works program or on a tour issued wedge of course. The other option is to just have any wedge that you prefer custom ground that way by someone like Jose.
