SAN DIEGO Ping chairman John Solheim reminded the PGA Tour on Monday that it cannot make a separate rule to ban Ping Eye2 wedges, the 20-year-old clubs that led Scott McCarron to claim Phil Mickelson is "cheating" by using them.

But then he says this...

Quote
"While I fully expect the PGA Tour to honor this agreement, I'm willing to discuss a workable solution to this matter that would benefit the game and respect the role innovation has played over the long history of golf," Solheim said.

And of course, Finchem has a press conference tomorrow, so I'd guess the wedges are out at Tour events, but would still be accepted (excepted?) by the USGA.

Nice non-apology apology by McCarron as well:

'I didn't say he was a cheater, I just said he was cheating'.

Umm...

I'm not laughing at Scott McCarron. I'm laughing with Scott McCarron.

Phil the Thrill is doing nothing more or less than asserting his dominance, EXACTLY like this except not PRECISELY:

Maybe.

OTOH, my understanding is that the status of the irons and wedges in question is no different today than it was on Dec. 31st, 2009:

Nonconforming, but legal for play under an exception granted by both the USGA and PGA Tour.

I have seen these wedges turn up in various 'What's In The Bag' features over the years, and nobody said much, and sure as hell nobody used the 'C' word.
