Is there a plan to fix the approach physics? There is absolutely no reason 9 irons should roll out 10 yards. The physics are acting like you are coming in with a 3 wood. It makes some holes impossible to hold the green when coming in with a pin tucked and you have undulating slopes.

Yep. I just hit a PW to a soft green. It hit an upslope but bounced and rolled up the said upslope 5 yards or more. Soft greens, pw, upslope, really?

Not quite what we are seeing for the soft greens at the Ryder cup, is it?

Wide conditions are good and the current firm and very firm has a place in game. But there has to be some sort of spin response into greens. Max lofted wedges behave like stock wedges should....
