Custom Bettinardi putters at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game

Published

on

Batter up, Bettinardi!

Bettinardi Golf teamed up with Excel Sports Management to customize putters for seven different baseball players who have been named as 2014 MLB All-Stars.

The lucky gift-getters include Alex Gordon (Kansas City Royals), Clayton Kershaw (L.A. Dodgers), Zack Greinke (L.A. Dodgers), Freddie Freeman (Atlanta Braves), Dellin Betances (New York Yankees), Masahiro Tanaka (New York Yankees) and of course, Derek Jeter (you know what team). After announcing he’s retiring at the end of the season, Jeter is being presented farewell gifts from every baseball team in the league, so it’s fitting that he gets an awesome personalized Bettinardi putter too.

The putters are made from Double-Aged Stainless Steel (D.A.S.S.) with what the company calls a “golden flame” finish.

“Being a huge fan of baseball my whole life, I was pleased to team up with Excel Sports to make the highest end putters for some of the top baseball players in the world,” said Bob Bettinardi, President/CEO of Bettinardi Golf. “It displays our unique ability to not only produce putters for the PGA Tour, but also being able to expand and create these one-of-a-kind coveted gifts for All-Star players.”

    In addition, there is a world-famous Bronx Zoo,
    the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Botanical Garden, along with the breath-taking New York Aquarium.
    However, an experienced may have solutions for helping the
    room that you will have never considered. This is the option we may recommend since the containers included in the kits are
    created for Bokashi fermentation specifically and therefore are just sufficiently small
    to tuck away right into a convenient place such like a pantry or
    underneath the sink.

    When a player lands here they have to pick up a Doo-Dad
    card and pay whatever it tells them to. Cleaning
    – The outside of the garage door needs to be cleaned at least four
    times a year. You can also use Twitter to search by
    keyword as well as a amount of other functions that may help you hone in on who your target audience is.

    You need to find out about stop loss orders
    before you start investing your hard earned money inside the stock market.

    However, because of the variables that have the potential
    to acquire in the way of building a healthy portfolio, you have to wonder whether it’s
    even possible. People who are not goal setting techniques tend
    to ‘t be as successful – they stay stuck , nor achieve their
    dreams.

What GolfWRXers are saying about trying single-length irons after Bryson DeChambeau’s U.S. Open win

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing a ‘single length iron re-boot’. WRXer ‘disco111’ asks fellow members if anyone is now going to adopt the single-length iron strategy following Bryson DeChambeau’s incredible recent play, and WRXers have been having their say on the single length approach.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Lobber: “I played one length for a bit and actually did quite well with them. But I think the real key to success is bulking up and adding 40 lbs!”
  • puttingmatt: “I would say try them, to each his own. That said, thinking success in the professional ranks rarely passes down to the everyday amateur, especially in equipment. I would suggest golfers stop comparing themselves to the professional players, and while you may think you can play like the new U.S. Open champion with clubs like these, reality, begs to differ.”
  • sdedalus23: “I set about this summer to make the game easier through club setup. To do so, I was going to either get the cobra forged tec blacks one length or the Ping G410’s. I went with the one lengths (4-G) to give them a try. I haven’t found problems with gapping thus far, but the short irons are a bit of a challenge. I am a high ball hitter, and they hit it incredibly high; so high that I have had a bit of a problem in the wind. I also found that my 54 and 60, which are still variable length, became less consistent with half shots due to the differences in length. Overall, my scores haven’t changed much (still mid to low 70’s) as they are generally predicated on how I am driving the ball because my iron play generally sucks. “
  • scotterhd2: “This thread got me. Have a set of F8 OL irons in the backup bag. Just ordered a JumboMax Ultralite grip. I think I’m going to put it on the PW and give them another test.”

A post shared by Bob Parsons (@drbobparsons) on

If there is one underrated part of PXG’s club lineup, it’s the company’s putters. They pack a lot of technology into both traditional-style putters and more modern designs.

Technology

  • Optimized face pattern – Like with previous PXG putters, the pyramid face pattern optimizes the ball speed across the putter face by reducing speed on center strikes while also retaining speed towards the heel and toe, all providing a soft feel. The face ensures consistency in all parameters that affect roll including; initial ball velocity, launch angle, spin rate, and skid.
  • Tungsten weighting – For maximum stability, the putter has an added tungsten frame along the perimeter to boost MOI and create a deeper center of gravity. The Tungsten works alongside the lightweight aluminum frame to remove mass away from the center while still having ports for weight customization.

Specs, price, and availability

Based on Mr. Parsons’ post, the putter will be available for order starting October 13th, although a retail price has not been set yet. Like other putters in the PXG line, it will come with a number of hosel configurations, and thanks to the adjustable weighting, it can be built exactly to the desired spec.
