I personnally, don't see what all the fuss is about. I play in the Tokyo room, I change my apparel package, but not for distance, iron spin, etc, but for the clothing that gives me the highest additional coins.My equipment is the best, I don't need boosts, I need to hit the fairways, on my drive, greens on approach, and stay within my avg distance to the pin, and 1 putt., my equipment can do this without help, from clothing. My opponent, if he's a pro, but level 110, even better, means it's going to be a competition, not a gimme . No matter what equipment, or apparel boosts he has, he still has to put the ball in the hole, with less strokes than I do. If I play "my" game, to my abilities, chances are I'm going to win. If I get beat, so be it, I'll try harder next time. Playing coin games, clashs, and tourneys, are all completely different animals, and as such needs to played differently.
