It appears as though we achieved our goal of getting our players dialed in for this years US Open. Both Luke and Jonathan were confident in the setup of their equipment for this week's grueling test of golf skill and nerves. We also had a former staff player stop by the van to look at the new MP 63's. It looks like we'll be busy in Hartford, at The Travelers, getting these new irons to the player's exact specifications so he'll hopefully be ready to pop them right in the bag.

Mizuno player, Jonathan Byrd, won a three-man playoff with a hole-in-one on the fourth extra hole in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Moments earlier, Byrd stood on the 18th green with Martin Laird and Cameron Percy as they discussed whether there was enough light to continue. They agreed to play one more hole -- the 196-yard 17th at the TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. Essentially the playoff ended one swing later.
