17 Revealing Photos from the AT&T Byron Nelson

Published

on

GolfWRX was live this week from the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Four Seasons, the second (and last) leg of the PGA Tour Texas-swing.

Unfortunately, the weather was terrible. Rain storms, thunder storms and tornado warnings were abound, but we stuck it out to bring you the best photos possible.

Browse this week’s photo galleries here.

It was a wet one, but check out this week’s edition of Revealing Photos from the TPC at Four Seasons in Irvine, Texas.

A Happy Gilmore wedge-stamping to infuriate opponents

Dropping a “somebody’s closer,” in Happy’s high-pitched voice is certain to cut deep into the soul of your playing partner after sticking your approach closer than him.

Hopefully for birdies and eagles, not innocent bunny rabbits.

And leave this bird out of it, too. He’s fresh out of the barber shop.

There’s a bizarro-world Dustin Johnson caddying this week

One is a Tour player wearing pants and smiling, the other is a Tour caddy wearing shorts with a death stare — opposite, but yet, so similar.

“Up is down; down is up. He says hello when he leaves and goodbye when he arrives.”

Spieth has something funny on his phone that Justin Thomas can’t stop laughing at

“Dude, that’s hilarious.”

“HAHAHA, ouch my ribcage.”

“Wait, let me see that again.”

*still trying to regain composure*

Sometimes we forget that guys like Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth — despite having healthy bank accounts and loads of golf skill — are just 21-year-old kids that can’t stop laughing at something on a phone while other golfers are on the tee box.

Who says golfers aren’t cool?

This duo is like the new age Method Man and Redman.

Fresh to death.

Lefties constantly complain about hand-dominance discrimination from golf manufacturers

But we shouldn’t hear a word about not being able to compress a golf ball. The DST Compressor training aid clearly comes in left-handed options, as shown in Tim Wilkinson’s bag this week.

In this week’s edition of “desperate times call for desperate measures”

We bring you garbage bag golf bag covers. There’s nothing worse in golf than wet grips, and that’s a fact.

The best putting drill to sharpen your focus…

Is definitely the one where you have a caddy changing his smelly, wet shoes behind you. Requires laser focus that translates well to the course.

Wondering how these new Lamkin grips perform?

Question: answered.

It’s like watching Ronald McDonald eat a Big Mac, or Colonel Sanders eat a Kentucky-fried chicken wing. Poetic.

I have no idea what’s going on in this picture

But maybe some things are better left unknown.

True Temper Project X’s handmade proto graphite shaft now comes in red

Our sources say the black-colored prototype will produce lower launch and spin, while the red shaft will be slightly higher spinning.

The Dizzy Wedge

This “Dre” double-stamp on the Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind looks simple at first, but it’s nothing but a headache if you stare at it long enough.

Check out this Grilled Cheese putter.

Fourteen Golf has a new line of crazy-looking HK putters — even more bizarre than the cheeseburger putter pictured above. See more in the gallery below.

Jimmy Walker actually has a comparatively legible autograph to his contemporaries

4614319ce245bdfa2937fbcc1ed9cbca

As Arnold Palmer once said, “I have always felt very strongly that if someone thinks enough of me that they want my autograph, I should provide one that they can read. Very little irritates me more these days than to see the illegible autographs that some people give out.”

Looks like Walker is in the clear. But Rory on the other hand;

What does that say, “Jimmy Omg”?

Dufner carrying just about all 14 of his clubs

That looks like me walking to my golf ball across the fairway when it’s “cart path only.”

“It’s about 210, which could be a 3, 4, 5 or 6-iron depending on the wind. But what if the lie is bad and I need to lay up? That could be anywhere from a 7-iron to a lob wedge. Ahh forget it, I’ll just bring ’em all.”

This AT&T sign has good intentions, but a poor message

f0a4d134e548ed9cd3abe9dac377147b

Comparing children’s future to a waning sunset is a little disconcerting, no? A “back-nine sunset” means the round is almost over and it’s about to be nighttime — nothing encouraging about that. Wouldn’t a sunrise be more promising? Plus, sunlight during sunset is way dimmer than midday sunlight. It’s like saying “their futures are brighter than a flashlight that’s super low on batteries.”

Just an overall swing-and-a-miss metaphor here from AT&T.

    You guys are doing a nice job with this series. It’s a good feature to break up some of the other (instruction/equipment) content that has gotten a bit stale over the last few years.

    Keep up the good work, and thanks!

Today from the Forums: “New Axis 1 Tour-HM models at the 2020 Honda Classic”

Published

on

Today from the Forums shines the spotlight on new Axis 1 Tour-HM models featured at this week’s Honda Classic. The flat-sticks have garnered lots of reaction from WRXers, with our members currently split on the unique designs.

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.

  • tiger99210: “I like them. Doesn’t look Odd at all.”
  • Barracuda: “I don’t get the hate on companies that are actually trying to do something better than what we have available. I don’t play axis1, but it was definitely on my shortlist, I ended up with a LAB putter. It does look funky; it also helps me score better than my stunning queen B6.”
  • Steel Dillo: “I’d be more interested if they were priced reasonably. Just don’t see what drives their cost up comparable to a fully milled specialty brand other than having Rose’s name on them. IMO, they should be in that $200-$250 range like their other putters.”

Published

on

Cut DC

Cut Golf has recently introduced the newest ball to its Cut Blue family—the Cut Blue DC, which features Dual Core technology, enhanced compression and a 360 dimple pattern.

The latest addition from Cut Golf is targeted towards golfers of all skill levels, and along with its Dual Core which bids to maximize initial velocity, the ball is Mantle designed to provide for high precision spin control as well as improved putting feel and sound.

The Cut Blue DC contains a 4-piece construction with a urethane cover designed to maximize spin and greenside feel, while the ball’s 360 dimple pattern is designed to increase aerodynamics.

The latest ball from Cut Golf is fully conforming to USGA rules, features 105 compression (up from 90 on the original Cut Blue) and arrives in both white and atomic yellow color codes.

The Cut Blue DC is available to purchase now at CutGolf.com and costs $29.95 per dozen.

Our friends at TXG, Tour Experience Golf, reviewed the Cut Blue DC, and you can check out the video below.
