It's now banned by the PGA for providing a competitive advantage.

Nah, all you need is a club whose end is made entirely out of C4, and a impact detonator is in the ball. Then we won't have to watch this crappy sport anymore.

Easy there, tiger! Golf is great

Glad to know I can double that on a good day with my AMP! Thanks Ricky!

48 inches is the maximum allowed by the Rules of Golf anyway. PGA doesn't have a say in the decision, that's the USGA and R&A.

It's a shame, too. That thing would be awesome for measuring relief.

That's not true. Yes, the PGA Tour just follows the established rules of golf, but they don't have to if they don't want to.

The USGA is a not-for-profit organization that provides rules and does turf research and crap.

The PGA Tour is a private organization that runs golf tournaments for its members. The PGA Tour could make whatever rules it wants for golf tournaments. For example, if they really wanted, they could make a grandfather clause for the anchored putter rule if the players complained loudly enough about their careers.

Sure, it is not going to happen and the PGA Tour will most likely just follow the rules of golf, but it isn't set in stone.

Some say it was born after John Daly made sweet sweaty love to an Old Milwaukee can. Some say it knocked Tiger Woods into that tree. Some say it has more personality and better table manners than Colin Montgomery. All we know is it's called the Stig.

146 yards? So, about what I hit my 8-iron?
Agree that it would be awesome for measuring relief, though... "2 club lengths? OK, I'll just hit out of that zip code over there."

"Because the club is so heavy and so long with so much width, you really have to wait for the club to finish its coil in order to start your downswing, so you have to be very patient"

Insert "So's my penis" joke here.

Pfft, you only hit an 8-iron 150?

An Texas man has broken the world record for longest usable golf club, driving the ball 146 yards using a club measuring 14 feet, 2.5 inches in length.

I've never understood that attitude IRL. I hit my 8 right at 135, and it's a scoring club. Even if somebody can hit a 150 yard wedge, all that's going to do is give you even more awkward distance gaps as you get closer to the pin.

Then again, I'm not obsessed with distance. My scores dropped when I quit carrying a driver.

A good player can hit every club in his or her bag 100 yards. I've seen Annika Sorenstam do it with my own 2 eyes.

If Annika Sorenstam is the definition of a "good golfer", then we're setting the bar rather high.

She did throw up a 71 at Colonial from the tips, when it was set up under PGA Tour conditions. That's a little tougher than playing your local muni.

Well, you get the awkward gaps if you don't take the time to plan out your set. But, get rid of a higher club, and you can throw in another wedge.

I have p, 50, 54, 58 and that takes me from 147 to 85. Throw in choking down and everything is covered.

I will admit, I am obsessed with distance cause its fun. And, as long as I take a nice slow golf swing, my coach said I can swing as hard as I want coming down. It's the overswing that kills me.

Gambling is illegal at Bushwood.

And I never slice.

Fair enough, but I can do it 4i through gap, with a fair amount of roll. She was stopping them on everything under 5.

Just in the interest of accuracy. It was $100 bucks for the slice. $50 bucks for the Smail's kid to pick his nose

Me neither. It's form that counts. If you can get that good whoop whoop whoop sound as the club flies through the air after a shank I'm not too concerned about how far it went.

Well, the engineering of getting it to do that and not shatter into teeny pieces is impressive.

Also; the fact that it actually WORKS...poorly...BUT WORKS!
