Hey everyone, the race for the fedex cup resumes again this week and BMW Championship is about to start at Conway Farms Golf Club in Illinois. The PGA Tour put out a hole by hole recap of what the players will face and gives us a great insight into what the course is like!

Who's your pick to win this week?!?

Henrik Stenson. He's the man to watch though I wish TW would win. But his recent results in R3 and R4 don't seem to be there, unfortunately.Smile

Snedeker switches to a 45-gram driver shaft
by Zak Kozuchowski   |   September 12, 2013




Brandt Snedeker doesn’t change equipment often, but when he does decide to switch he’s not scared to play something unconventional.
Snedeker already plays one of the lightest iron shafts on the PGA Tour, AeroTech’s SteelFiber i95, which weigh 95 grams. This week, he’s using one of the lightest driver shafts on the PGA Tour, a UST Mamiya ProForce VTS 4X shaft that weighs 45 grams (Click here to see the other clubs in Snedeker’s bag).
According to Danny Le, marketing manager for UST, Snedeker first used the shaft in Rounds 3 and 4 of the Deutsche Bank Championship. He was looking for a shaft in the 55-gram range to put in his TaylorMade SLDR, but he gained a little extra ball speed and consistency with the 45-gram model.
Most PGA Tour players opt for shafts that are made with low torque, which means they have a high resistance to twisting as a golfer unloads the club in the downswing. Many equipment experts believe the resistance to twisting can provide increased accuracy off the tee, especially for golfers with quick transitions. But Snedeker’s shaft has more than 5 degrees of torque, which is on the high-end of the range for Tour players.


Graham DeLaet’s 65-gram UST Mamiya ProForce VTS shaft has 5 degrees of torque, slightly less than Snedeker’s driver shaft.

And Snedeker isn’t the only golfer on Tour who has seen improved accuracy from a high-torque shaft. Graham DeLaet, who is No. 1 on the PGA Tour in Total Driving (a combination of driving distance and accuracy), uses the highest-torque model of UST’s ProForce VTS 6X driver shaft.
The point? Just because low-torque shafts are touted as the best shafts for high swing-speed golfers doesn’t mean they always are. Go get fit and see what shaft is right for you.

Hoping Tiger plays well and finishes at least top 3... was hoping Rory would make a push this week but looks like he'll be done for the rest of the PGA TOUR season after shooting at 78 yesterday and being 6-over through 12 holes today... currently +13 for the tournament with 6 left to play...

heard that luke donald is a member at conway farms so was expecting him to play well this week, looks like he's even par for his 2 rounds so far!

TW at -4, and 7 back from the leaders still has a mathematical chance if he play well in R3 & R4. To be penalised a further 2 strokes on the first hole would have been demoralising for many. Still he kept his composure and shoot 1 over. Hope he make a  charge in the final 2 rounds.Basketball

Wow Jim Furyk shoots a magical 59 to tie lead with Brandt!
Way to go Jim.

Tiger finish R2 with. +1 after a two stroke penalty on the first hole.
7 strokes behind, wonder if he can catch up.

Jim Furyk had a great charge with his new toy...

WITB - Jim Furyk

of course one need a lot of imagination, determination, focus and even luck to get the magical 59.

TW's ball moved when he was moving loose impediments around it.
He did not feel that it moved but video replay showed that it did.
Honestly I felt that it was difficult to conclude it moved without video.

Shooting 59 is no easy task, just like shooting a HIO. A golfer's form on that day with lots of luck is required.

He declared that he accidentally moved the ball or someone/the official saw it? If the former, he was not very enthical as a professional gofler ...
