I am just not sure what a player can do to check if a club is conforming other than carry the test out for themselves, which doesn't seem possible. It is not unreasonable for the players to expect a level of quality control from the manufacturers.

Although to bring in my f1 analogies agian, cars can fail extremely technical rules that those without mechanical engineering degrees would struggle to understand and the driver stills feels the brunt of the penalty.

While I agree there probably isn’t much a player can do to check it does give them an easy out “Didn’t know anything about it guvnor, honest”

It’s a difficult one for sure

Kwini

I agree if a non conforming club used in competition then the player should be DQ'ed. Just not sure what they can do to stop it happening other than trust the manufacturers tech people.

Why should you trust someone who's trying to push the rules envelope to the limit? That's total b0ll0cks.

Hello Mr Strawman.

I would trust my supplier is making clubs that are conforming. They have the testing equipment and how to test the tolerances. The onus is on the manufacturer and not the player.

So: Penalise the manufacturer, but I seriously doubt the golf authorities have the legal right to do so.
But, and you're right, it sounds as if Parsons & TaylorMade are equally guilty.

Someone has to stick to the rules, and penalising any player who tries to bring a non-conforming item into play should be dq'd and fined. As has been done with dodgy balls in the past.

callaway are not entered in the competition, you cant hold anything over them. The player is entered, he makes the decision to use whatever clubs he wants. He stands by the decision if one of them is dodgy.

Why don't they have a tester at each event, and then the players can get there clubs tested. Or just make sure they find out how to get the club independently tested, and do that.

I seem to remember on here a few years ago when Portrush was first talked about as a possible venue for the Open a lot of people doubted it would happen or could happen. Lots of doubts that the infrastructure would be good enough etc. I think those doubts must well and truly be gone now as it has been a great championship with great crowds and it is such a nice course.

So Shane admitted he would go to bed dreaming of lifting the Claret Jug. I can’t say I blame him, four shots in the lead off the back of a 63.
I just hope he avoided the town as no doubt Portrush would have been bouncing last night.
On that can anyone recall a player getting the level of support at an Open that Shane did yesterday? Rory in 14, Darren Clarke 11, Tom Watson in 09 are recent ones that got high levels but I don’t think any were at the level Shane got.

I'm suggesting that someone needs to be made accountable for cheating, whether thru ambivalance or deliberate act.
In these cases, it appears that no illegal equipment has been found to have been put in play.

But, in the past, players have been dq'd for using non-conforming gear whether balls or clubs.

Schauffele, and possibly others, seem to be fortunate in that the R&A pre-empted dodgy clubs being used in competition, but Xander seems hell-bent on deflecting accountability and getting pee'd off at the R&A, whereas it's the manufacturer he should be focusing his blame on.

Other players are guilty and it’s totally unfair to single out Xander! Not saying you’re Kwini, but it’s poor form from the RnA

It's up to them. But if a club is found to be a bit off and haven't had it checked. Its their own fault. Can't just say, it's what they gave ne. Its nonsense.

IMO, you are missing Xander's point. He doesn't want random testing, he wants 100% testing.

Apparently 4 out of the 30 tested drivers failed the R/A testing. From 4 different manufacturers. That's 13.3%. That's an alarming percentage, and extrapolated to the entire field, that's could mean 16 (or more) players that are playing non-conforming drivers.

Once the R/A got a failure rate that high, they should be testing everyone's driver.

If I was on Xander's team, (and Six Sigma Black Belt) I would also be asking for Gauge R&R records on the testing equipment. To make sure the testing equipment is not giving out false negatives and false positives. 13.3% failure rate is a big red flag that something is the testing procedure is amiss.

Mac,
I get my car inspected once a year, but that doesn't protect me against any nonconformity later that year. Same thing here, surely?


GPB,
Agree with most of that.


Good bogey in the end for Shane on #1, missed chance for Tommy.

One more bad mistake from a Top Tenner and Tom Lewis will also be in for RSG - and I think that's where he first hit the public eye.

Shane could bogey in now and still win comfortably but Sky seem to be going a long way to justify his level of play with warnings of previous collapses.
But it must be to appease the casual viewer as anyone who follows golf can appreciate the difficult conditions and understands that he won this yesterday and today he is comfortably doing all he has to, to ensure it.

We have all been rightly critical of Shane's schedule since his WGC win because he has failed to nail down a position well into the OWGR top 50, but what would we recommend his schedule look like after he wins the Open?

He will be qualified for the Majors for the foreseeable future and probably get into the next ryder cup but does he need to find a more sustainable schedule in terms of maintaining a higher OWGR?

If he brings this home, I'd say he can play where the hell he wants. So long as he gets his 15 x PGA Tour events in.

T4 would get lw1 into The Masters as well at RSG. Provided Koepka doesn't birdie the last.

For context he only seems to have failed to qualify for the 2018 Masters, but has failed to qualify for quite a few WGC's since 2015.

I think I agree with that, especially since an Open is a better achievement than having stayed in the top 30 OWGR for several years. The mail it in for regular events then turn it on at the majors model has certainly worker for Koepka (who by the way looks ready to smash JB in the chops).#

I just quite like Shane and think that it would be good if he could avoid the mindset adopted by one time winners like Oostie and Charl who seem content that their career aims have been met and their hearts don't seem in it anymore. Shane could win another Major.

Also don't think too much if any criticism can be thrown at Fleetwood. The conditions were too tough to make enough birdies to make up the deficit from the start of the day, especially considering Shane scored solidly.
