heres some action from the Asian Tour International at Suwan Country Club...

the team of thai fitters led by Kunnasak.





R&A Groove Check



everything is precisely measured so that there is transparency.



a hardening compound is applied to the iron and wedge face...





when hardened, this is lifted off the face...



it is cut into a small strip and place onto a digital magnifier...



this is immediately mapped against the approved groove configurations - spacing between grooves, groove type, groove depth, round edge on the outer V and rounded inverted V. Everything is captured, mapped and certified.



more action...

players at the driving range....



Kunnasak with MM



Udorn with his John Daly pants...poor guy injured himself after hitting a tree root on the first 9 yesterday. had to withdraw from the tournament.



i was told MM was practising till the sunset on tuesday with his new irons.



have fun viewing......

That groove check process is really a waste of money, time and materials.

Thank you USGA + R & A.

Let me guess on those irons: Callaway X-Prototypes with new grooves?
