I'm just guessing, but today's game improvement 4-iron probably has the loft of an old 1-iron. Although its a helluva lot easier to hit consistently.

https://www.golfdigest.com/story/cam...mps-power-move

does cam champ really launch his drives at 4 or 5 degrees? that's 1) so inconsistent with conventional wisdom the last 20 years, 2) i would think that would getting towards "worm burner" territory (have to check the cosine on that angle)

Golf Digest recently visited with Champ to get a closer look at his impressive drives, talk to him and Foley about how he became the longest player in professional golf, and capture his blazingly fast swing for your viewing pleasure. His stock drive is a missile, launching at only 4 or 5 degrees (most bombers launch it at 11 degrees or more) yet staying in the air nearly 300 yards before it lands and rolls another 40 or 50. You have to see it to believe it, but you better duck. —Ron Kaspriske

he talks about it here (smart guy using his degree and making a smart choice imo):

https://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/2...in-2019-rules/

he says the Tours/R & A made a mistake with this rule ... so much so that they might have to rethink keeping it.

i can see this actually slowing down play. one player wants the flag out ... next guy wants it in ... next guy wants it out ... caddies walking back and forth taking the flag out and putting it in.

The whole point of the rule change was to speed up play for casual rounds, it had nothing to do with tour. The PGA Tour should just make their own rule that you have to take the pin out, since a caddie is always there to tend the flag. Otherwise as you point out there is going to be a lot of retardation and slow play out there.

Not really they all take so long eyeing up the putts. See how many players follow him doing it

Kuchar's sports psychologist must have told him that a win still counts as a top 10.
