I listened to it yesterday and it was very interesting. To be fair, despite his title, I wasn't sure of how much he has actually done R&D work as he's so familiar from the videos, for some reason I thought he might be more of a manager in the R&D and not so much an actual designer. Kudos to Chris for admitting to having designed the Draino putters. :)

I liked my MP-57s very much and I still have the 3 iron bent to 18 degrees or so, it was interesting to hear he was behind those clubs.

He's just gone up in the world - very recently. Now the 'brand' manager at Mizuno US. Will be a very good thing to have a genuine golf equipment enthusiast steering the ship for Mizuno US.

I would prefer if golf companies were lead by engineers rather than marketing people. I do prefer more marketable designs than those by Ping but if we could just end the "whose 6 iron is the longest" nonsense.
