Photos from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from the Monterey Peninsula in Pebble Beach, Calif., for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, the most scenic and celebrity-filled event on the PGA Tour. Pebble Beach Golf Links sits atop cliffs that overlook Carmel Bay, producing both breathtaking views and an imposing threat. The multi-course event is also played on Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course.

Phil Mickelson looks to capture his fifth win at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but has been battling lower back issues. He withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines due to injury, and had a lack luster performance in his title defense at last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, aside from throwing footballs into the grandstands.

Brandt Snedeker, this week’s defending champion, and two-time champion Dustin Johnson are also headliners for the tournament, which features seven of the top-21 players in the world rankings.  Snedeker broke the tournament scoring record last year en route to victory, and also captured the pro-am division title alongside fellow Vanderbilt alum Toby Wilt. Johnson will team up again this year with NHL Hall-of-Famer and future father-in-law Wayne “The Great One” Gretzky, or better known in the Instagram/Twitter world as Paulina Gretzky’s dad.

Other notable celebrities are NFL quarterbacks Tom Brady, Alex Smith, and Aaron Rodgers, NFL Coach Bill Belichick, musicians Kid Rock, Kenny G and Darius Rucker, surfer Kelly Slater, tennis star Andy Roddick, actor Don Cheadle, and of course, the rumblin’ stumblin’ sports reporter Chris Berman.

    Few things- What happened to Daly? Why’d he put the lbs back on? I’m kinda suprised Peyton showed up after that EMBARRASSING performance a few days ago. And, lastly who is that hot “ethnic” chick?

      why wouldn’t Peyton show up?? If anything it proves he is a gentleman and not some whiny pro athlete/sore loser who runs and hides after a poor performance. Or, was it an OUTSTANDING defensive job by the Seahawks??

      Daly probably ate more calories than what he burned off… that is how one “puts the lbs back on”… I am sure he is sorry that he disappointed you….

      And I am sure the “hot ethnic chick” would jump at the chance to introduce herself you seeing how nicely you treat everyone else.

        It really doesn’t prove he is a gentleman. Not sure where you got that from. It proves it didn’t bother him that much to be humiliated by Seattle’s defense. Yes, Seattle embarrassed him.

        I was wondering WHY not HOW Daly put the weight back on.

        You’re right. I think she would rather introduce herself to someone boring like you with no opinions whatsoever and a

WRX Spotlight: EV3D putters

Published

on

We hear the buzz words “3D printed” all the time these days. It’s a newer technology that has shown to have lots of applications in other industries, but golf hasn’t been one of those until now. 3D printing a putter is a pretty new adventure, but EV3D Golf is showing that it is going to be much more common very soon.

EV3D Golf is bringing new putter designs to us golfers that CANNOT be made through traditional casting or milling. 3D printing is the process of creating a putter layer-by-layer, allowing any supported shape you can think of. Even hollow designs like EV3D’s signature lattice features!

This gives EV3D engineers the ability to create putters that push the limits of MOI, feel, and of course look. The intricate lattice design does more than just look really cool, it also helps move weight to the outside and rear of the putter, increasing MOI in all models. All EV3D putters are printed from a combination of 420 stainless steel and bronze. This alloy gives the putter its responsive feel, excellent durability, and the ability to offer 3 finishes. They also offer a ton of different hosel designs to fit your eye and putting stroke, all are 3D printed as well. EV3D even adds custom touches like text in the cavity, different site lines, and paint fill to make it your own. Right now they offer 6 different head shapes, but if none of those are what you are looking for, they will work with you to print your dream putter from scratch!

We got our hands on 2 models, the EV3D Golf Ares X and Hades, to take out to the course and putt with. In hand the first thing that grabs your eye’s attention is the intricate lattice work on the putters.

All you want to do is hold the putter closer to your face and see how the heck they did it. At the right angles you can actually see through that lattice structure, but we were told that debris getting stuck in there isn’t an issue. The next thing you will notice is the rough texture of the head. This is created by the process of 3D printing the head, showing off the layers of material used to build the shape of the head. I don’t know if was intended but that rough texture does help with reducing glare, making the putters easy on the eyes even in the brightest conditions.

I personally really like the Antique Bronze finish, but EV3D does offer a Natural and Slate Black finish to suit your personal taste. Out on the putting green the Ev3D putters performed really well, offering a hefty dose of forgiveness and a crisp feel and sound. Traditionally modes like the Hades don’t offer much in the way of forgiveness compared to mallets, but the Hades shocked me with its off-center putts. Putts hit off the heel or toe stayed on line much better and I even made a couple that had no business even being close to the hole.

Distance loss on those mishits is about what you would expect, coming up a little short, but defiantly not a drastic difference. Since the EV3D line doesn’t have any fancy face milling, I was a little worried about the initial roll and if the ball would hop or skid. Initial contact was great, only met with a tiny bit of skid before rolling out. Nothing that I think effected even my longest putts. The feel off the face is something that reminds you of a quieter classic Ping BeCu putter, crisp with an audible click. If you are looking for a silent impact, like an Odyssey Microhinge, then the EV3D line might not be your cup of tea. If you are on a quest for exceptional responsiveness on well struck and mishit putts then you should be very pleased with any of the EV3D putter models. The feel of impact is a little firmer than I think we are all used to these days with so many inserts and deep milling. The crisp feel and slightly more audible EV3D is somewhat refreshing and mishit putts are extremely easy to recognize.

Overall, the EV3D putters are a solid offering from a new company utilizing a new technology in the golf club space. With all the combinations of putter heads, site lines, and hosels, I can’t see you not being able to find a putter that fits your eye. Looks for any putter are going to be subjective, but there is no denying that EV3D is pushing the limits at a time where we see a lot of similar putter designs from all manufacturers. And if you are the type of person who wants to create an original design of your own that has never been done, EV3D is waiting for that call to help you take your idea from thought to printed putter head! Check the entire EV3D putter line at the company website.
