ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “At first I didn't feel like it affected me. But on the inside I think it did. I had expectations, kind of putting extra pressure, kind of worrying about things I wasn't worrying about all last year and in the beginning of the fall. But for me it was a good learning experience. I had a lot of ups and downs. I had some injuries mid-season that kind of halted me for a while. I tried to play through those. I think as a rookie season, if you would have told me I would have won and made it to the BMW, I think I would have took it and signed the paper then”.

BRAIN TEASER: How many PGA TOUR starts did Cameron Champ need before he entered the winner’s circle by winning the 2018 Sanderson Farms Championship?

FORE! This isn’t necessarily going to immediately impact the future of the PGA TOUR. However, it’s worth watching if it becomes a trend. READ MORE>>>

DRIVE FOR SHOW: Golfers are crazy about the long ball. So too, are the ruling bodies of the game but for different reasons. While distance is an advantage, it isn’t an absolute and the greatest asset is still a hot putter. Case in point, at last year’s Sanderson Farms Championship, 86% of Cameron Champ’s total strokes gained for the week were a result of both his off the tee and on the green performances at CC of Jackson.

According to ShotLink data, Champ ranked second against the field off-the-tee gaining 1.420 shots. However, his putting, also ranked second, was worth 2.272 shots per round! His putting was clearly more significant in the big picture. Wonder if many remember that in the distance debate!

YOUR MAJESTY: Price is a critical element for any business or success of any product. Golf equipment prices have been static in recent years, which has been both a good and bad depending on your vantage point. A few companies have attempted to reside in the ultra premium price point segment. But when a business relies on volume that can be a very challenging proposition.

One golf company has its sights set on a specific market and isn’t looking to widen its focus anytime soon. “Our focus is finding the top 5% of income earners. We know there is a membership that exists for this price point,” said Adam Sheldon, President, North America, Majesty Golf Company.

A golf equipment company, Majesty Golf, staking the largest luxury segment golf club market share in Japan and Korea, has announced four new upscale products designed for moderate swing speed golfers: The Royale Driver, Royale Forged Face Irons, Royale Fairways and Royale Hybrids. These new clubs will be available in the U.S. on October 1, 2019.

The Royale Driver represents the very best of our industry-leading lightweight technologies, according to the company. The clubhead has a Spider web face and a three-piece structure, using a highly rigid and lightweight honeycomb design that promotes higher ball speed across the face, Majesty said. Its ultra-lightweight shaft sports its double bias technology that utilizes two layers of high-elasticity carbon wrapped around the bias area, which minimizes the torsion and slightly lengthen the shaft for more distance without sacrificing control. The MSRP is $999.99.

Royale Fairway Woods have a lightweight titanium crown and tungsten alloy sole, to promote a higher trajectory and more stability. Each wood has one of the deepest CG locations Majesty has ever manufactured, according to the company. With the head construction, the CG deepens by 5mm and the moment of inertia (MOI) increases by 17%, according to Majesty. Combining the driver’s refined Spider web structure with the exotic Dat55 G forged face promotes a larger sweet spot, it said, yielding consistent distance across the face along with unprecedented feel. The MSRP is $500.

The Royale Hybrids also feature Majesty’s Spider web design in conjunction with a high-grade TSP910 titanium face. Each clubhead also includes a high-density tungsten weight and high-strength maraging custom body that deepens CG by approximately 1mm while boosting MOI by 10%, according to Majesty. The MSRP is $500.

Royale Forged Face Irons are geared for aspiring golfers seeking distance and control. The irons feature a multi-material construction consisting of an ultra-thin forged maraging steel face, a repulsion groove and a tungsten alloy that positions the center of gravity (CG) 1mm lower than its predecessor. The MSRP is $500 per Iron

"These innovative, new products are in a class of their own,” said Sheldon. “We spared no expense in creating them. From the exotic materials to the jewelry quality finishing techniques and overall performance engineering, we built the ultimate product for moderate swing speed golfers.”
