What drivers do the PGA Tour’s longest golfers use to bomb their tee shots? Here’s a tally of what the top 10 in driving distance on Tour are using by driver manufacturer.

  • Cleveland: 2

    Guys- like most people you tend to focus on what a pro is using- not me- I want to know who that 70 year old is doing to hit 350 yard drives, and 9 irons 200 yards! Me I am 70 years old in July 2017, I use a Taylor Made 2013 head with my replacement shaft which is an EXTRA stiff graffalloy x65 gram extra stiff shaft. I hit it 245 yards with a 5 -10 yard draw, nine iron 135 stiff shaft yards made by yards Gigagolf , TRX PowerMax Slot Irons. with a solid 8 handicap. Who give a rats behind on all the million dollar precision clubs which , except touring pros can obtain. Where the news on my style of Golf that real golfers need. not bragging, but I ain’t half bad. Plus I use
    A U S MADE TAPE MEASURE ( real feet) ((not a Chinese foot) TO CHECK MY YARDAGE, NOT TV HYPE!

    Bad attention to detail by Golfwrx. Not a big deal, but I wanted to see where both Day and Johnson placed the movable weights on the M1. Then I noticed the photo shown is the same photo, most probably a TM stock photo and not the actual M1 head of either golfer. And I here I thought Golfwrx was into full and complete details and real, true photos of the actual clubs. The Cleveland photo shown is most likely a stock photo as well, although not as objectionable because of its nature.

    I loved this article. So much that I searched hard for a Tour Issue Cleveland. I went right toYTC’s (your tour collection) ebay site and bought a Tour Issue Cleveland 290 Classic 9.0 / 2* open, (thanks Marc for the deal)! Lets hope I can bomb it like Keegan come spring…

    Eight different drivers among the 10 longest hitters. Further proof that it’s the “Indian, not the arrow”. These 10 guys could play any one of those 8 drivers and still land in the top ten longest.

    • Gorden

      Dec 26, 2015 at 10:24 pm

      It is the Indian with a team of fitters for each one….as for we armatures it is up to how you feel about the company who’s name in on the product. IE, if your a Callaway guy or a Ping fan you will find the Cleveland and Taylormade a piece of junk, as if your a Cleveland guy you find Ping and Callaway nothing but a waste…….that is the fun of golf play what you like because that is what your going to play best with (unless your under 18 years old with a lot of professional swing coaches leaning you to one club or the other, the Country Club kid with access to every club on the planet).

    Im always amazed at the weight of the shaft the Pros who use the Cleveland Classic have. 50-60 grams

    Im no pro, but I hit it a long ways and would have no idea what to do with a club that light…maybe I should try:)

    it should be noted how the PGA tour calculates “Average Driving Distance”, Two par fours or fives are selected for each round. The holes chosen are ones that play down wind and down grade. The tour takes the average distance of those two drives, Not saying that the above players don’t bomb it, but the numbers are slightly distorted to help sell equipment and advertising.

    • Jack

      Dec 23, 2015 at 11:06 pm

      That’s interesting. But it’s still very hard to average 300 yards. Occasionally bomb a 300 yarder possible, but average!

    • Pete the Pro

      Dec 24, 2015 at 6:51 am

      Nearly right. The figures are collected for various reasons. One of them is to better inform golfers about performance. If the manufacturers failed to capitalise on the better results, it would be unusual. In my view, there is nothing wrong in trying to sell golf equipment. Golf instructors, for instance, use data collected to help inform their clients. Club fitters use the data to assist golfers get fitted with the best clubs for them. Measurement is two holes but they need to be wider faiways on a good driving hole where the players are most likely to use the driver. Data becomes complex if it’s a narrow par 4 and half the field hit 3 wood, hybrid and longer iron for position.

    • mhendon

      Dec 24, 2015 at 9:36 pm

      Well unless they’ve changed the way they choose the two measuring holes you’re wrong. As I’ve always understood it they try to choose two hole in opposite direction so one is down wind and one into the wind and generally they try to choose flater holes where the majority of the field will hit driver.

  12. Jon

    Dec 23, 2015 at 10:22 am

    That is somewhat of an eclectic mix, especially with Cleveland having to representatives in the mix and Callaway with just one. The one item I would like to know is the playing length of these drivers. How many are 45″ and under? Or 45″ and over?

    • Tom

      Dec 23, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      you must be using an app that doesn’t allow you to see ( it’s there) the information your requesting?

      • Jon

        Dec 24, 2015 at 9:48 am

        Sorry, my bad. I guess 2 of the 10 are listed and the 2 that are listed, Bubba & DJ, are the ones I didn’t look at.

    One thing is very apparent. There is no magic club, shaft or swing that creates power & distance. You just have to find what works for you!

    I find it funny that there are two cleveland drivers on here and I have literally never seen anyone, anywhere, EVER, using one. Not saying its not a good driver as obviously its being used well by many pro’s, just I’ve never seen anyone who’s not a pro using one.

      Dec 23, 2015 at 12:34 pm

      Not that I count for much but I gamed a few Cleveland Drivers recently including the 588 and the Black. They are great drivers, especially for the money and especially for lower swing speed golfers. The only problem I see is that a some of their recent offerings are not adjustable and although they come with very good stock shafts-Matrix Black Tie and Mitsubishi Bassara E Series they do not offer the wide variety of stock shaft options that are offered by the big sellers. They are also not a big presence in big box stores. But I see a few in guys’ bags and any Senior or low SS player should seek them out.

      It’s a good club. I’ve tried it before, and it’s well regarded. I think the styling is a bit classic, but that’s intended!

    • tiger168

      Aug 15, 2016 at 3:09 pm

      how arrogant of opinion and close minded golfer!

      I always pay respect to other golfers on the course and praise their good drive with whatever big stick they have at the time.

      I also do that in the parking lot when people bring classics to the courses. Nice driver, I always say, And you will hear a lot of interesting stories and make a lot of friends.

  17. Jack

    Dec 22, 2015 at 9:47 pm

    Are these more what we shouldn’t be using then? Yeah I know we need to get fitted etc to be sure, but I’m pretty sure most of us’ swings are nothing like the pro’s. I went to an indoor range last night (don’t know how accurate but it’s close) I can max out 260 in no wind, flat conditions, but my average is only 220. Yeah those mis hits and hooks count too. These guys all average over 300. I used to tell people that I hit 250 when people ask (but of course they didn’t say average LOL). But max and average really is not the same thing. Changing up my swing so hopefully will get some consistency and distance gains.

    • Ian

      Dec 23, 2015 at 12:43 pm

      If this helps you as much as it’s helped me you can check out an iPhone app (also works on newer iPads) from the app store: Perfect Form Golf.
      For the price of a bucket of balls it helped me to acquire tempo (since mine was crap), this allowed me the timing to finish my shoulder turn, get my hands extended but with relaxed wrists, then get my elbows in front on the down swing with the net result I got huge distance gains.
      But since the effort level had dropped I could also keep accuracy. Your mileage may vary but I went from 200-220 to 285-300 (yeah, I know, my golf buds didn’t believe me either until they saw it for themselves). I then used the app to compare my irons, chipping/pitching, and even putting to a 3D motion capture avatar of a pro swing against mine in slo-mo, and got improvements there as well.
      For whatever reason actually seeing the differences overlaid, versus being told about them seem to be the key to getting really fast improvement. My swing is a work in progress and winter up here slows things down, but I was pretty much blown away at how far from a decent swing mine actually was, and how quickly I could start bringing the pieces together for decent tempo and kinetic sequence. Like I say, your mileage may vary but I guarantee there will be some significant component that you will be able to modify to get closer to your goal.

    Dec 22, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    I find it interesting both Titleist players are using prototype models not available to the public. For years people ragged on taylormade for that very reason. Oh and if I’m not mistaken I believe Keegan is using a Srixon driver unless he went back to the Cleveland.

    • Tim

      Dec 22, 2015 at 9:58 pm

      Went back to the cleveland, but he’s using a 53 gram shaft made specifically for him. Not the 63 it says above.

        Dec 24, 2015 at 9:47 pm

        I actually knew that and figured I get corrected on that one. But to me if its not in retail and it’s a major up charge to get it then it’s still an exotic head similar to what Taylormade was always complained about by so many WRX’ers.

  20. jon

    Dec 22, 2015 at 7:23 pm

    guys, he’s just the listing clubs that the top 10 longest hitters use, he’s not saying that the top 10 hitters have gotten in this list BECAUSE of their clubs.

    Is Rory not on here due to not enough rounds or what? With koepka and finau going Nike, they will have 4 guys on this list if you include Rory

    • Benny

      Dec 23, 2015 at 6:46 pm

      Thats correct. Rory was shown in the putting article but was the only one not to have Strokes Gained Putting because he did not meet the approved amounts.

  23. Tim

    Dec 22, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    Get Tom Stickney on here to write a real article about what these 10 guys do similarly in their swings. They could all hit it the same if you swap the sticks…

  24. Chris

    Dec 22, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    I am nearly positive the shafts Jason Day, Adam Scott, and Brooks Koepka are using are the kuro kage xts, not the regular kuro kage tini.

  25. cody

    • Andrew

      Dec 22, 2015 at 4:41 pm

      There’s a link under each player about showing their WITB.

      Pretty sure though you’ll mainly find wedges by their sponsors, golf pride tour velvet and some variant of Dynamic Gold Tour Issue across all the players

    • Prime21

      Dec 22, 2015 at 10:46 pm

      Geez, I guess they better do an article on that then, cause you’re quite important. You do realize they have a WITB on EVERY player right?! R E A D

  28. Ryan

    Dec 22, 2015 at 4:13 pm

    So they are playing what they are paid to play… WOW.

    The putter article was a little more significant, as some were using a non sponsored brand… this is one, i dunno.

    What is next? “The HATS the least tan players on tour are wearing?”

  29. juels

    Dec 22, 2015 at 4:10 pm

    Um… These guys could all hit Tour Exotics, Mizunos, Wilson or any other brand that still releases quality equipment and still be in the top 10….

WRX Spotlight: EV3D putters

Published

on

We hear the buzz words “3D printed” all the time these days. It’s a newer technology that has shown to have lots of applications in other industries, but golf hasn’t been one of those until now. 3D printing a putter is a pretty new adventure, but EV3D Golf is showing that it is going to be much more common very soon.

EV3D Golf is bringing new putter designs to us golfers that CANNOT be made through traditional casting or milling. 3D printing is the process of creating a putter layer-by-layer, allowing any supported shape you can think of. Even hollow designs like EV3D’s signature lattice features!

This gives EV3D engineers the ability to create putters that push the limits of MOI, feel, and of course look. The intricate lattice design does more than just look really cool, it also helps move weight to the outside and rear of the putter, increasing MOI in all models. All EV3D putters are printed from a combination of 420 stainless steel and bronze. This alloy gives the putter its responsive feel, excellent durability, and the ability to offer 3 finishes. They also offer a ton of different hosel designs to fit your eye and putting stroke, all are 3D printed as well. EV3D even adds custom touches like text in the cavity, different site lines, and paint fill to make it your own. Right now they offer 6 different head shapes, but if none of those are what you are looking for, they will work with you to print your dream putter from scratch!

We got our hands on 2 models, the EV3D Golf Ares X and Hades, to take out to the course and putt with. In hand the first thing that grabs your eye’s attention is the intricate lattice work on the putters.

All you want to do is hold the putter closer to your face and see how the heck they did it. At the right angles you can actually see through that lattice structure, but we were told that debris getting stuck in there isn’t an issue. The next thing you will notice is the rough texture of the head. This is created by the process of 3D printing the head, showing off the layers of material used to build the shape of the head. I don’t know if was intended but that rough texture does help with reducing glare, making the putters easy on the eyes even in the brightest conditions.

I personally really like the Antique Bronze finish, but EV3D does offer a Natural and Slate Black finish to suit your personal taste. Out on the putting green the Ev3D putters performed really well, offering a hefty dose of forgiveness and a crisp feel and sound. Traditionally modes like the Hades don’t offer much in the way of forgiveness compared to mallets, but the Hades shocked me with its off-center putts. Putts hit off the heel or toe stayed on line much better and I even made a couple that had no business even being close to the hole.

Distance loss on those mishits is about what you would expect, coming up a little short, but defiantly not a drastic difference. Since the EV3D line doesn’t have any fancy face milling, I was a little worried about the initial roll and if the ball would hop or skid. Initial contact was great, only met with a tiny bit of skid before rolling out. Nothing that I think effected even my longest putts. The feel off the face is something that reminds you of a quieter classic Ping BeCu putter, crisp with an audible click. If you are looking for a silent impact, like an Odyssey Microhinge, then the EV3D line might not be your cup of tea. If you are on a quest for exceptional responsiveness on well struck and mishit putts then you should be very pleased with any of the EV3D putter models. The feel of impact is a little firmer than I think we are all used to these days with so many inserts and deep milling. The crisp feel and slightly more audible EV3D is somewhat refreshing and mishit putts are extremely easy to recognize.

Overall, the EV3D putters are a solid offering from a new company utilizing a new technology in the golf club space. With all the combinations of putter heads, site lines, and hosels, I can’t see you not being able to find a putter that fits your eye. Looks for any putter are going to be subjective, but there is no denying that EV3D is pushing the limits at a time where we see a lot of similar putter designs from all manufacturers. And if you are the type of person who wants to create an original design of your own that has never been done, EV3D is waiting for that call to help you take your idea from thought to printed putter head! Check the entire EV3D putter line at the company website.

Top 5 golf grips of all time

Published

on

Tour Velvet Cord Golf Grip

Grips might seem simple, but there is a lot that goes into making good ones. From formulating compounds, and adding color, to creating tooling to make sure they hit all of the required specs. Grips are often the most overlooked part of a golf club, and they shouldn’t be. The grip is the singular connection you as a player have with your clubs, and it should offer equal amounts of control and comfort, depending on how often you play and the weather conditions.

Yes, golfers generally pay a lot of attention to their putter grip,s but when it comes to the rest of a set, many golfers will just say “give me whatever is stock,” which is not a great idea.

These are the top-five grips of all time.

Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord

Tour velvet Cord Grips

How could we begin to talk about great grips without starting with the Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord? It’s the gold standard of durable all-weather performance. A soft rubber infused with a tight-weave cotton twill fiber (cord) adds additional traction that you just can’t get from an all-rubber grip on its own. It’s the most-used cord grip on tour and a favorite of golfers needing weather defying traction. (Honourable mention the classic non-corded Tour Velvet)

Winn Grips Excel

Winn Excel soft golf grip

The Winn Excel might not be the most durable or best all-weather grip ever made, but I challenge anyone to find a grip that offers greater comfort for fair-weather golfers, or players needing maximum shock absorption. The Winn Excel is Winn’s number-one selling grip of all time by a large margin, and speaking from experience, I have installed my fair share of full cases of these back in my big box retail golf days. From Winn “The Excel grip has been hailed by arthritic and hand fatigue sufferers as the reason they can still play golf.” With that in mind any product that is able to help golfers enjoy the game more belongs on the list!

Lamkin Crossline Cord

Another cord grip might seem like an odd addition to the list, but hear me out. Grip aficionados will tell you right away why they prefer the Lamkin Crossline Cord over others on the market. The taper is slightly different, the cord is a bit rougher, and for those in need of anything bigger than a standard grip—the Lamkin Crossline Cord is the ONLY full cord grip on the market that comes in an oversized option (weighing in at a whopping 76g). That alone makes it unique and earns its spot in the top five.

Iomic Sticky

Iomic Stick Golf Grips

Bold, colorful, and tacky are all words best used to describe the Iomic Sticky grip. It was one of, if not the first, mainstream grips in North America to offer a HUGE selection of color options and there’s a scientific reason why. Iomic grips are made from an elastomer resin, which is neutral in color: this means that any change to the color won’t change the weight of the grip, and that means you can mix and match up your set without having to worry about changing feel. It also gives grip designers endless freedom to come up with wild combinations too. According to Iomic, the elastomer resin offers a number of distinct advantages over rubber which includes lower torque, greater durability, and all-weather traction.

Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compound

Golf Pride New Decade golf grips

Easily making its way into the top five is the Multi-Compound or as many call them the NDMCs. This grip was a game-changer for Golf Pride and the industry as a whole. It made grips “show up” on TV and got regular golfers to rethink their grip buying habits from just plain rubber to multi-material colorful options. From a performance perspective, the NDMC offers the best of both worlds, cord on the top (gloved hand) and a softer material under the bottom hand for additional traction and comfort.  Still considered a premium option, you can find New Decade grips on a lot of OEM stock products.

What do you think GolfWRXers? Are their any grips you think belong in the top five that aren’t included? Any that are included you don’t think should be?

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from SMAC43 who created a topic dedicated to Tour player’s love of Vokey wedges. SMAC43 asks fellow members just why so many Tour pros choose to play Vokey wedges, and WRXers weigh in with their reasoning.

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

  • Downtown_Brown_4: “I think it has a lot to do with Aaron Dill. He’s able to take feedback from the players and custom grind anything they could ever want.”
  • straightshot7: “Vokey is probably what most of them played with as a junior and in college. Some guys don’t like to tinker with their short game equipment. Vokey is tried and true.”
  • Matty01984: “Vokey’s definitely seem to be the most popular wedge out there, and they have been for some time. The grind options and the guys that Titleist have working for them are definitely a big part of that. Interesting to see them cropping up in bags of guys that are on staff with other companies.”
  • Pepperturbo: “Remember, next to putters, wedges are the most used clubs on the PGA Tour. For that reason, Tour players replace wedges multiple times per year. A few players with contracts have been known to replace them every two-three months. However, if a tour player uses forged wedges, they are replaced more often because the sole and grooves wear quite fast with excessive use; cast not so much. I played forged for years before switching to Vokey SM6 when they were introduced; still have them in the bag too, even though I practice near daily with the LW. Last but just as important. Even though wedge grooves wear a good player can still spin the ball. Spin is about how you impact the ball and speed.”
