Photos from the Northern Trust Open

Published

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.

Check out our photos from the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club.

    Thanks for the photos. The Tour is not letting us regular mouth-breathers on the property until Thursday…

WRX Retrospective: Interesting photos from the 2019 Masters

Published

on

As of now, we know the 2020 Masters is going to have to wait until November. The tournament will be as exciting as it will be interesting since it will be the first modern glimpse into Augusta National beyond April.

It has also given us the great opportunity to look back with hindsight 20/20 (that was very much an unintended pun) at our pictures from 2019 to showcase some of the most noteworthy and interesting, including some potential foreshadowing of the week that was to come.

2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson isn’t one to change putters too often, but he must have been searching for something last year when testing out this TaylorMade Spider.

This was Viktor Hovland’s last Masters as an amateur. He won low amateur honors and went on to capture the same distinction at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

TaylorMade always does a wonderful job with major-themed accessories and bags. 2019 was no exception.

Little did we know at the time this was taken, this man would be leading heading into Sunday’s final round. How the tables turned so quickly.

Callaway’s collab with Seamus Golf lead to these flower-themed headcovers.

We can’t forget that Tuesday practice day was rained out and the course was closed at 10 a.m. to both players and spectators. It wasn’t the warm spring kickoff many had hoped for!

Although it was short-lived, it was a rainy Tuesday for all, including caddies.

The weather broke on Wednesday and the view up the 10th hole never gets old.

Did you realize two-time Masters champ Bubba Watson’s Flightscope has a custom pink paint job?

Inexpensive snacks and beverages are always a highlight of any Master’s visit.

The 2019 Masters featured pre-bulked Bryson, who also happened to have a custom FlightScope X3. He looks like a veritable stick!

They say a picture says 1,000 words, but in the case of Tiger Woods, we had no idea how many words would be written come Sunday.

A peek into the bag of Gary Woodland, who would go on to become the U.S. Open Champion only a few months later.

Special shoutout to Gary Woodland’s caddy Brennan Little, who hails from St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, and is obviously a big Toronto Blue Jays fan. He was also on the bag for Mike Wier’s win in 2003.

Although the relationship was short-lived, Sergio used some very cool custom Toulon putters while on staff with Callaway Golf.

The eighth green is one of the most interesting and mounded on the course, there’s not a bunker to be found but danger lurks everywhere.

Undulations at No. 1 are a sight to be seen at ground level.

The iconic, understated clubhouse of ANGC.

The tucked-away first tee spike cleaner is something every course should have.

And of course, the iconic 12th, where so much would be decided come Sunday.
