To be honest with you WGT, I find apparel item bonuses are useless, never do any good to anyone at any level.
High-level players have their clubs mapped out so changing the yardage of clubs does nothing but making calculations more complicated. I myself use apparels uniquely for appearance and leave them as default for abilities most of times.
Less experienced players, on the other hand, may enjoy extra yardage, extra precision, extra forgiveness, extra whatever given by appareal item bonuses when playing in coin rooms at first, but eventually they will only get frustrated and disappointed when they find out they can't use those boni for tournaments & rated rounds when it really matters.
Also I'm sick and tired of hearing those rumours and myth of mobile players taking advantage of the bonuses in any type of games. Some spread it out on purpose while others innocently and ignorantly believe it. Either way... just get rid of it so that it puts the end of this ridiculous myth.
Instead, make silver coins more useful (i.e. allow players to purchase balls with them) and you will witness a whole lot more play in coin rooms.
