ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I was never that special growing up in regards to the talent that I had. I always worked really good. I was a good junior golfer, but I always felt like I wasn't the best growing up, and so I always had to find other ways to get a little bit better. I could practice for 10 hours and barely get better just by practicing. And so I was trying to always find a little edge on the competition in other ways, whether it was understanding elevation changes or whatever it was back in the day. And so I'd always kind of thought outside the box and tried to make my golf swing easier and simpler. It's paid off a little bit here and there, and it's finally started to pay off more and more as we've started to understand the conditions at hand.”

BRAIN TEASER: He will turn 25 on Sunday and cross $8 million in earnings this season regardless where he places at the Tour Championship. Can you name him?

ITS YET THAT TIME AGAIN! Tour Edge has introduced its latest Exotics EXS driver. “The EXS driver is absolutely loaded with technology,” stated Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod. “This is the most technology we’ve ever been able to fit into a design and each one works in concert with one exsanother to provide the best performing driver possible. The shapes are beautiful and we utilized only the finest in materials and components. I believe that at the aggressive price point that we are offering, the EXS driver will have its highest impact on the driver market over any other previous Exotics release.”

Here is the lowdown for the gear heads out there. The EXS 460cc head features premium Japanese exotic metals, according to the company; TSP 910 Beta Titanium face plate featuring Variable Face Thickness Technology and a 8-1-1 Titanium chassis. The TSP 910 Beta Titanium face has been made even thinner and lighter in the EXS over previous Exotics driver models to produce a greater spring-like effect, once again according to the company.

Tour Edge R&D paired the TSP 910 Beta Titanium face plate with a light Carbon Fiber Crown and with additional Carbon Fiber located on the toe of clubhead, allowing weight to be repositioned lower and deeper in the head. The Flight Tuning System allows adjustable sole weights to be moved to two alternate settings; a 9- gram weight in the heel, 3-gram weight in the rear for lower spin, slice-reducing shape and a medium launch and then the 3-gram weight in the heel and 9-gram weight in the rear for medium spin, neutral shape and a higher launch.

The adjustable hosel allows the 9.5 degree EXS driver to go from 7.5 degrees to 11.5 degrees, while the 10.5 degree EXS driver will adjust from 8.5 degrees to 12.5 degrees. The adjustable hosel also features three upright lie angle settings, giving it 16 different settings between the two FTS weights and the eight different loft and lie settings. If you’re not confused by this point then you should be in deciding which combination of settings are going to work best. An Exotics tuning wrench will come at no charge (duh) with each driver at the point of purchase.

The new ultra-premium, high-performance drivers will be available worldwide at $299.99 on November 1, 2018 or about the time when most golf courses goes dark with old man winter breathing down our necks!

A DIFFERENT CAT: Bryson DeChambeau is so excited about playing in his first Ryder Cup next week that he made a special purchase to take to Paris. And it had nothing to do with golf. READ MORE>>>

WOODS AT THE TOP: The crowd at East Lake was larger and louder than it has been in five years, which was the last time Tiger Woods was at the Tour Championship. It was no coincidence. Woods played one of his best rounds of the year in his return to the FedEx Cup finale and caused the biggest cheer of a sun-baked Thursday afternoon by making an eagle putt from just over 25 feet on the par-5 18th for a 5-under 65 and a share of the lead with Rickie Fowler.
