15 Revealing Photos from the PGA, Web.com and NCAA

Published

on

It’s been a busy couple weeks for our Tour photographer; he’s covered the Tour Championship for both the Web.com and the PGA Tour, the NCAA Northern Kentucky Fall Classic and the NCAA Collegiate Challenge.

If you missed any of the galleries, what have you been doing this whole time? I mean… you can browse through them in the links below:

We have a lot of tours to cover and photos to reveal, so let’s get right to it.

Patrick Reed’s bag prank on Danny Lee…

It’s a classic trick often seen in junior and college golf where you turn someone’s golf clubs upside down in their bag. From first-hand experience, it’s quite a nuisance rearranging the clubs.

It’s time to get in the spirit of the Presidents Cup! But for some golf fans, unfortunately, the Presidents Cup merely means it’s time to begin counting down until the Ryder Cup.

Lee McCoy is an O.G. gear head

Nickent 3Dx ironwood? Nike VRS fairway wood? While most of the new age golfers keep up with the latest gear, it looks like Lee McCoy is a traditionalist. Very refreshing.

He also has some funny Caddyshack-inspired wedge stampings on his Callaway MD3 Milled wedges

Rory’s new Nike putter

It’s apparent that blue has taken over for Victory Red and Volt, both seen in previous lines, as the dominant color for this year’s Nike clubs throughout the bag.

And as for the grooves on Nike putters, it seems they’re only getting more pronounced.

Remember when Robert Streb made five birdie putts with his wedge?

297666b9c605f7920c54766e16d8a564He got this stamped on his wedge to commemorate that round.

It’s a known fact that Chuck Norris doesn’t need a putter; he just roundhouse kicks the ball into the hole.

4 ways to tell this guy isn’t a PGA professional

  1. He’s wearing shorts.
  2. He’s wearing the hat of the tournament he’s playing in.
  3. His glasses are hanging down in the way of his swing.
  4. He’s wearing his glove on the wrong hand.

    If I could produce that sort of wear mark on my driver, it would not matter what brand, model or shaft; I’d be a happy golfer.

GolfWRX Spotlight: Scotty Cameron Special Select Newport 2

Published

on

When you buy a Scotty Cameron putter, you know what you are in for: quality craftsmanship, stunning attention to detail, and of course—one heck of a flat stick. Cameron has been refining his designs for more than 25 years at Titleist, and the Special Select line has become a showcase for timeless shapes known the world over, including the Newport 2.

2020-scotty-cameron-select-2

Classic shapes never go out of style, and as far as the Newport 2 in the Special Select line goes, it brings me right back to my Art of Putting Oil Can Newport 2, the one putter I wish I had never sold from my collection.

Photo: Scotty Cameron Archive

It has a noticeably thinner top line than any recent Cameron releases, which may or may not appeal to all golfers, along with sharper lines along the bumpers.

Design as a holistic utility, ebbs and flows throughout history. What was popular for a very specific reason at one point may not appeal to the same people as tastes and preferences change. The Special Select line brings back a lot of classic influences, which as a whole, will appeal to a very large number fo golfers familiar with Camerons of the past.

2020-scotty-cameron-select-5

The benefit of the modern Special Select versus the classic designs are the customization options available. The Special Select head weight changes based on the length of the putter to keep feel the same, and if you want to go a step further, you can choose to have your putter built to either the “light” or “heavy” spec directly from the Titleist custom shop. With the trend of putter heads getting heavier, I can see this becoming a very popular option.

2020-scotty-cameron-select-7

Scotty Cameron has always had a keen eye for putters and this line is no different,

“With Special Select, I wanted to get back to the pure-milled shapes and faces that I’ve been crafting for tour players for over two decades now. We’ve brought those designs into the modern era with new setups, necks, faces, grips and weights. Every aspect of every putter has been redone. When it all came together, it was pretty special.” – Scotty Cameron

Special Select Line Update:

All of the changes made to the new Special Select line versus previous releases are tour inspired and include

  • Soft Tri-sole Design: to promotes the putter sitting square to the target line at address when the putter is soled.
  • New Tungsten Balanced Weighting: These new heavier weights not only assure each putter is properly balanced based on putter length, but also offer higher MOI thanks to the greater concentration of mass on the heel and toe.
  • Refined Hosel Configurations: Each model’s hosel has been tweaked for optimized performance. For example, the Newport 2 putter features a slightly shorter plumbers neck for more toe flow, along with a new socket radius (where the hosel neck meets the top line) to offer better visibility of the ball and leading-edge at address.

Scotty Cameron Special Select Details

There are eight models to choose from in the 2020 Special Select line; three blades, and five mid-mallet options with a look and toe flow for any player’s stroke.

  • Newport, Newport 2 ( featured here), Newport 2.5, Del Mar, Fastback 1.5, Squareback 2, Flowback 5, and Flowback 5.5.

Special Select putters retail for $399.

TaylorMade introduces yellow TP5 and TP5X golf balls

Published

on

TaylorMade TP5, TP5X Yellow

TaylorMade Golf has introduced their new yellow versions of the TP5 and TP5X golf balls which are available online and at retail today.

Designed for high visibility, the yellow balls feature all the same technology as the original TP5 and TP5X golf balls which includes a 5-layer construction as well as a low compression core designed to increase launch angle and reduce drag.

TaylorMade TP5, TP5X Yellow

As a reminder, the TP5 and TP5X also contain the brand’s HFM (High-Flex-Material). Described by the company as its “fastest material” ever, HFM is a tightly wound spring, which is designed to create more rebound energy when compressed for added ball speed.

TaylorMade TP5, TP5X Yellow

The balls also include TaylorMade’s Speed-Layer System, which is comprised of four increasingly stiff layers, creating a Speed-Layer System that enables a soft core to be wrapped by increasingly rigid materials. This system allows each outer layer to become progressively faster with the aim of controlling spin rates without affecting speed or distance.

TaylorMade TP5, TP5X Yellow

The yellow versions of the TP5 and TP5X golf balls are available to purchase on taylormadegolf.com and through their global retail partners at retail or online.
