Photos from the Northern Trust Open

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., for the 2014 Northern Trust Open. Riviera, which is known as “Hogan’s Alley,” earned the nickname by surrendering wins to Ben Hogan in two L.A. Opens and the 1948 U.S. Open at the venue within an 18-month span. It has been the home of the Los Angeles Open since 1929.

The 2014 field features 16 of the top 30 players in the current world rankings, including Jason Dufner, Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson and 2013 Rookie of the Year Jordan Spieth. Blazing hot Jimmy Walker enters the tournament looking for his fourth win of 2014 after a victory at last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose, who hasn’t hit a competitive shot since mid-December at the Thailand Golf Championship, is set to make his 2014 debut.

John Merrick, who played his college golf nearby at UCLA and lives in the Los Angeles area, returns home this week as the defending champion after winning in a playoff over Charlie Beljan at last year’s Northern Trust Open.

10 revealing photos from the Genesis Invitational

Published

on

By

GolfWRX was live this week from the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. If you missed any of the photos from this week, make sure to catch up on them below, where we have seven general galleries from Hogan’s Alley, a number of WITB looks, and even a thread filled with photos of a certain 15-time major champions.

All other galleries

Piretti Putter Kobe Bryant tribute covers

FYI: Two numbers? Kobe wore No. 24 in high school and switched to 33. But when drafted by the Hornets and traded to the Lakers in 1996, 33 was already retired by the team in tribute to Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Bryant then chose 8, the number he wore as a youth in Italy, which also coincided with the sum of “143,” the number Bryant wore at Adidas ABCD Camp in high school. Bryant also wore 24 in the NBA from the 2006-2007 season onward, explaining, “24 is a growth. Physical attributes aren’t there the way they used to be, but the maturity level is greater. Marriage, kids. Start having a broader perspective being one of the older guys on the team now, as opposed to being the youngest.”

Jason Dufner’s custom Scotty Cameron

Looks like a custom Timeless Cameron with a smooth face (no milling), which is not available in retail. Tiger Woods WITB has the same smooth face on his gamer. Here’s a link to Duf’s putter pics

Sergio’s WITB is off the hook

The Spaniard is gaming the new TaylorMade SIM Driver and fairway woods, some Ping Blueprint silverware, and a Ping PLD putter.

“It seems most of the Ping staffers who play the PLD putters have either completely flat faces or the plain horizontal milled lines on the face. I’m not really sure why they seem to prefer this, but I suspect it’s because they don’t really need the “forgiveness” of the TR grooves. They also may not like that the putter sounds slightly different when hit on the deeper grooves compared to the thinner spots.” -nova6868 from the forums.

Dustin Johnson’s WITB showed us his TaylorMade 64* Hi-Toe wedge

Adam Scott’s WITB features both LAB and Cameron broomstick putters

New 2020 Fourteen wedges

Please, Fourteen, bring these to market! (Link is here to see more photos in the forums).

Kevin Na’s WITB graphite shafted Odyssey/Toulon bronze Madison putter

Link to Kevin Na’s WITB here. 

Matt Fitzpatrick’s WITB is representing his favorite football team Sheffield United

Matt Fitzpatrick’s WITB has his Yes Tracey putter. His Bettinardi cover is for his favorite Football team: Sheffield United

Let’s not forget thee GOAT is here. Tiger Woods w/ his TW20 shoes

Are those metal spikes? Yes, they are. We don’t miss the marks on the green, but we do miss their sound clattering in the clubhouse!

Some superb stamping from Vokey’s Aaron Dill on Ben Taylor’s SM8 wedges.

The Cobra tour department’s wedge efforts are, in the words of Judge Smails, “no slouch!” Justin Suh’s 52 and 58-degree Cobra King wedges.
