I saw that head and a Callaway square driver head on the Golf Channel the other day on one of their technology segments. Man I guess they are okay but it would take me a long time to get use to that type of head.

 It took me several years to acclimate to the big Ti heads. Yet now I love them so I guess this is the next big thing and I need to adapt.  help Gus

Why didn't I guess that KJ and DD would be the first pros to switch to the crazy lookin' clubs. Phil Mickleson will likely switch... so he doesn't slice it into giant tents for relief anymore

I'm headed to a Demo Day this morning.  You know I will be pushing hard for them to get them out of the trunk.

Hey JD.....what did his driving #'s look like? And is he still with MCC/Apache for his shafts? That shaft doesn't look Apache.

Thanks. Boy, averaging 303 yards per so far. I know that really means nothing, depending on the course, holes used, etc....but I didn't know KJ had that in him. He's only 5'8", 185. I'd love to here candid comments from him on the Sumo.

If you demo a sumo do you have to wear one of those funky diapers they use in Japan?

I almost think it looks BETTER than the SQ.  That's how bad the SQ looks.

At least you know you're expecting something out of the ordinary w/the Sumo.

I agree... the SQ was odd, but this one is really odd, and looks like it actually could be a BIG bomber... may have to take one for a spin next year!

Yeah, after looking at this the SQ almost looks traditional.

I like the look of the Sasquatch.  But then again, I also like the look of strawberry milk and spagetti-o vomit.   big_giggle

Nike has a huge head start with the Square drivers, esp with the Sumo's win right out of the box.
Nike really Dominated the 2006 season on the PGA tour as far as Drivers
