What are some of your favorite moments playing PGA Tour?

In spring 2022 there was a bug that allowed limitless plays of daily challenges, including one with an epic pack prize during the players championship. I must’ve played it 1000 times through that weekend and made HUGE progress in the game.

Favorite thing about PGA Tour?
The honor, tradition, and lack of Saudi sportwashing money. …Oh, you mean the game! Definitely the community, with the steady and fun path from progress and improvement as a close second.
If you could only play with one bag setup, which one would it be?
I wish I had a fun answer, but… Homecoming-Rocket-Magnesis-Meteor-Commonlaw
What would you say is the most under-appreciated club in the game?
I think wind avoidance is crazy underrated. Highflight gets a bit of love, so I won’t give it the award for “most under-appreciated” but I will advocate for it. Top prize goes to Conspiracy, not necessarily to hit with, but to stash next to Meteor and take the wind out of play on some trickier holes.
What’s an improvement to the game that you’d like to see added?

Earlier on in my progression I wanted to see varied pin positions. Now with chipping totally automatic using Magnesis, that’s a bit less meaningful and I think I’m most excited to see what new carrots they can provide for maxed-out players to keep making progress.

What tips would you give to newer players?

Listen to your elders. I stuck with newbie bags for too long (all Skyfury all the time) and it took joining Irrational Guys to fully appreciate that I needed to start using clubs like Rocket and Stormbringer/Seeker, even if it took a bit of time to learn.
