GolfWRX is live this week from the first event in the 2014 FedEx Cup Playoffs – The Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J. The course will play as a par 71, measuring 7,319 yards for the event.

The top 125 players on the FedEx Cup points list qualified for this week’s event, and the top 100 will move on to the Deutsche Bank Championship, the next leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Leading the points list are Rory McIlroy (No. 1 in FedEx Cup points), Jimmy Walker (No. 2), Bubba Watson (No. 3), Matt Kuchar (No. 4) and Jim Furyk (No. 5).

McIlroy, the world’s No. 1 ranked player according to the Official World Golf Rankings in addition to FedEx Cup points leader, is looking to win his fourth straight appearance, which includes two major championships (The Open, PGA Championship).

Adam Scott, ranked No. 2 in the OWGR and No. 14 in the FedEx Cup points standings, comes into this week as the defending champion, having held off Tiger Woods and Justin Rose at The Barclays last year at Liberty National. Although Scott won The Barclays, Henrik Stenson went onto win the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and the $10 million prize.

    owwww the 915d5, I heard that they were making a few prototype models for specific players, this being Adams Scotts 400cc?? Would love to play a new small headed driver, I have a Dymo 380cc now and bomb it when im swinging well.

    What’s with the super stroke grip on an iron for Kevin Chappell? Seems strange no?

      Was thinkin same! Possibly helps his feeling of keep flat left wrist at impact?

    Would love to see if Rory put the Vapors into play. Can’t imagine he would given the run he is on, however they did have the big unveiling the other night with Tiger and Jimmy Fallon.

      I was thinking the same thing. Highly doubtful he would make any change until after the season – if then even – given the run he is on. To me, the Vapors do not seem like tour clubs. I saw pics a few weeks ago of the Nike MMProto’s, a limited edition forged Nike iron set. Not sure if those are related to the Vapors or not, but many tour pros are starting to test those according to this article:

        You know nothing, Shawn, so shut it. The Vapors are awesome irons.

        The MM Protos were the Vapor prototype. Vapor Pro is same club, albeit more colorful. They also re-did the pro-combo and added a cast “speed” GI iron based on the same design.

    Did anyone else notice Charles Howell III using MP15 irons with KBS shafts!!!! Wow – he was MP64 with X100 previously.

    Really like those all gray TM putter. So nice when they stick to one head color. I think the TM haters population is going to go down quite a bit. Love their TP irons, SLDR are solid, Ultimate DI looks cool, new darker counter balance putters are way better than the easily chipping white ones. I was suprised in a good way by the jetspeed(with the right shaft). Gotta say the stand bags were so ugly this year.

      Yes, I also love that all-grey putter.

10 interesting photos from Tuesday at the Fort Worth Invitational

Published

on

GolfWRX is on the ground at Marvin Leonard’s famed pet project, Colonial Country Club, peeking into players bags and taking in the action on the driving range.

While you’ll want to take a trip through the buffet line, we’ve made you a plate of some of the tastiest morsels.

Absolutely savage new putter cover for Jon “Rahmbo” Rahm. Just killer.

Prettier than a new penny.

Spotted: Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI

Everything here is excellent. Just excellent.

More like Garsen Murray. Am I right?

If you were Aaron Wise standing over the winning putt at last week’s Byron Nelson, this is what it’d have looked like (of course, you’d have had a ball and the putter would be soled on the green, but you get the point…)

Abraham Ancer’s new Artisan wedges are simply incredible… All of this: Artisan star stellar stuff.

Rickie Fowler has gone grape.

You can’t fool me. You’re not Adam Hadwin, you’re a golf bag.

Is Patrick Cantlay considering a switch to a Cameron Napa?

Aaron Wise’s Winning Outfit: 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson Invitational

Published

on

The 21-year-old Aaron Wise pulled off a three-shot victory at the 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson Invitational — his first win on Tour. If you want to see the clubs he used, click here.

In addition to our Winning WITB series, where we show the clubs, shafts and specs from the winning player every week, we will also highlight the apparel they wore in our all-new Winning Outfit series. This is the first edition, and we hope you enjoy!

GolfWRX’s Resident Fashion Expert Jordan Madley says:

“First off congrats to Aaron Wise on his first win on Tour, but even more on his outfit choice for the final round. From a lady’s perspective, if you train hard, show off the hard work! Aaron, a Nike athlete neck to toe, showed off his lean physique in a Nike Zonal Cool polo, their slim-fitting flex pant, a stretch woven belt and finished it off with Lunar Command 2 kicks. The dark tones meant he was ready for war on Sunday and it worked!”

GolfWRX’s non-fashion-expert (but occasional fashion designer) Editor Andrew Tursky says:

“Wise went pretty conservative for his Sunday outfit. He was probably a little nervous trying to get his first victory and didn’t want to be too loud. Don’t get too fancy when it’s winning time; a good lesson for the folks at home. That’s not to say this outfit wasn’t sharp, though. White hat and white shoes is a great look, especially paired with the grey shirt and black pants/belt. Hits of white on the shirt with the Nike Swooshes bring it all together. Solid look here.”

Aaron’s Winning Outfit

Hat: Callaway Tour Authentic

Polo:  Nike Zonal Cooling Polo Framing (unreleased)

Belt: Nike Stretch Woven

Pants: Nike Flex Pant Slim

Shoes: Nike Lunar Command 2 Boa
