The Adams Prototype 9031sf and 9031df hybrids are currently being played on tour. They are smaller than the Idea Pro's with more of a "boxier" face. They are also more "workable" than the other hybrids and produce a much lower ball flight. No info on their release date yet, but as always, we will keep you posted.

In a promo event for PF Changs, Brinary Baird took aim at a target in San Diego's Petco Park field. He hit 10 balls from about 230 yards away and 375 feet in the air. Eight of them hit the target, two of them did not.
"As a result, he won everybody in America free chicken lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang's. Go right here to claim your prize!"
You know you got major bread when you own a dinosaur head.
"Golf Digest: Not to get too personal, but what's with the dinosaur head?
Phil Mickelson: That was my birthday present from Amy. Last June. Of the dinosaurs that have been preserved, the No. 1 is Sue, a very famous one at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. A Tyrannosaurus rex. Her head is like five feet long. The one Amy gave me is from Mongolia [paleontologists say it's possibly a Tarbosaurus bataar].
Male or female?
Female, not that I would know by inspecting it or anything. I'm just going by what I was told.
What is yours named?
Haven't named it yet. But it's the coolest thing I've ever gotten. My kids and I sometimes will just sit in my office and talk about what the world was like 68 million years ago. Amanda, our oldest daughter [born the day after the 1999 U.S. Open], wanted to be a paleontologist for a long time. Even before we got the dinosaur head. Our kids are really into that stuff, like outer space.
What is a dinosaur head worth?
I don't know. It was a birthday present. We've had four or five people bid on it, but it's not for sale. Talk about giving something to the man who has everything. I was really surprised, just like I was when Amy gave me the meteorite. That's from Argentina, a crash from the 1930s, I believe. I got that from Amy last Christmas. It weighs about 300 pounds and is the size of a basketball. I also have a small one that friends gave to me. It's about the size of a softball. There are more meteorites around than dinosaurs."

Lee Trevino thinks it's time he gave Tiger a lesson. Pretty Hilarius. Butch Harmon wasn't cutting it, but maybe Trevino can give the best player of all time some tee shot instruction.
"Tiger needs to learn how to hit a power fade"
"Haney knows what he's doing," Trevino said. "He's helped Tiger a lot, but I'd like to sit down and have a session with Haney 'cause it looks like Tiger doesn't want me to help him. I'd teach him a power fade, a go-to shot. Everyone has to have a go-to shot. He used to win majors with his stinger go-to shot. Last week he didn't even look comfortable with a 3-wood on the tee; he was scared, trying to guide the ball."

Sergio is using an odd putter this week at the players, mainly due to the fact that he hasn't had a very stellar putting average lately. He ranks 173rd in average number of putts per round (30.17) and 155th in putts per green in regulation (1.812).
"It is 35 inches long, and the head is from an extended-length TaylorMade Rossa Monza Corza.
The standard-length version of the Corza has slots cut out of the frame (top right), but the extended-length model is solid to add weight (bottom right). TaylorMade reps say that Kia Ma, the company's putter guru, ground the sides to make the shape more pleasing to Garcia's eye.
The grip on the putter also extends farther down the shaft than normal, making it look a little like Angel Cabrera's extended-length i Series 1/2 Craz-E B."
