Callaway, Titleist, and Ping: keep bragging. Tim: pipe down.
In his latest blog, Tim McDonald claims that all the high-tech golf equipment coming out by the truckloads are just rip-offs. He says, ?you could go out and shoot just as well with those old persimmon drivers in the back of your garage you haven?t used for years.?
Okay, Tim. And I guess all the changes made to championship courses each year, to make them more difficult, are due to the fact that Tour players are just getting that much better? If that?s the case, then why is poor Gary Player tearing his hair out?
And if equipment has nothing to do with it, then why am I always hearing that same tired old argument, ?24-year-old Jack Nicklaus would’ve kicked Tiger?s a** if he?d had the same equipment Tiger plays with!?
True, most of us aren?t PGA-caliber, and for the average player, the 454cc driver might not actually be any better for us than last year?s 434cc driver. But it’s better than the driver from ten years ago, and it’s better than the old persimmon.
Tim, if you?re so convinced that new equipment does nothing, go out tomorrow and see how you do with some old hickory-shafted mashies and niblicks. While you?re at it, switch out your Pro V1x’s for some featheries and gutta perchas. And after posting your worst score of the year, maybe you?ll be able to appreciate what Callaway, Titleist, and Ping bring to the game.

So while I'm all for throwing rotten tomatoes at old cranks like McDonald, it's not like he's just making up this stuff.
If the average golfer would go out and get some lessons to go along with those new clubs, there's no telling what his average score would be.
