Mitsubishi/Graphite Shafts giveaway

And another great giveaway.

Mitsubishi Rayon is looking for three GolfWRXers to test the new TENSEI CK Blue shaft in their drivers and report back the results.

Get in on the giveaway here

The TENSEI™ CK Series Blue shaft modernizes Mitsubishi Rayon / Graphite Shaft’s classic, smooth “Blue” bend profile through the use of a multi-material design, including the Carbon-Kevlar (CK) weave in the butt section — further refining the shaft’s overall bend profile and improving feel.

HOW TO APPLY:

In the thread, provide answers to the following questions:

  • What’s in your current bag?
  • What is your current handicap?
  • Where are you located (City, State, Country)?
  • What driver (brand/model/loft) will you be installing this in?
  • If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing Mitsubishi Rayon / Graphite Shaft TENSEI™ CK Blue review thread?  We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft.
  • Desired driver shaft weight and flex (reference product specification information for details)?
  • Please include any tipping instructions and OEM adapter (if applicable).
  • Please explain how you would approach testing the TENSEI™ CK Blue

That’s all you have to do. If you don’t take two minutes to enter these two giveaways, well, I guess you’re not the free stuff type.

Golf club you hated the most?

Here’s a great thread: wombat_vortex asks: “Anyone ever bought a new club and quickly started to hate it.  For me it was SonarcTec wedges, just could never get the feel. Same with some of the Tour Edge drivers, just felt dead coming off the face. They both quickly went back to the golf shop from whence they came, receipt in hand.”

ALIEN

Check out the replies which include such luminaries as they “Alien golf driving iron and” the “Smt Solitare 2 Wood… worst feeling club I ever hit.”

The cult of Mizuno Forged Irons 

Mizuno’s forged irons have a cult following. If you’ve made the most casual examination of golf equipment or taken the pulse of the enthusiast community, you’re aware of this fact.

It’s not surprising, then, that user DaRiz started a thread devoted to worshipping at the Church of Grain-Flow Forged.

Check out the thread.  

DaRiz started things up with this post:

“Just bought some 57s on ebay for $118 shipped with no browning and original Miz GP grips still in good condition (STEAL) Also got a set of some near mint T11s for $65 (50/56/60, crazy). I hit them at the range today and it was like a breath of fresh air. I decided then and there, as I pured 4 iron after 4 iron, worked my 7 both ways, and made my PW scream the safe word.. I am only playing Mizuno MP irons for the rest of my life.”

Other enthusiasts followed suit with glowing tributes and shots of their Mizunos.

The vanity bag

Here’s a thread many WRXers can surely identify with.

MadGolfer76 started the discussion:

You all know what I am talking about. Maybe the gear in your bag is a higher quality than your swing (lol), or you want your foursome to be impressed with your new sticks that they’ve never heard of. That kind of deal.

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

Published

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.
