Snedeker’s mixed bag: Bridgestone and others

Published

on

Brandt Snedeker is a throwback in many ways. He plays fast, gives honest answers and unlike the majority of the game’s top players, Snedeker plays equipment from a variety of different manufacturers.

The majority of Snedeker’s equipment comes from Bridgestone — Snedeker carries a Bridgestone staff bag filled with the company’s J40 cavity back irons (4-PW) and J40 Black Oxide Wedges (52-and-56 degree models). He also uses the Bridgestone ball that the company recommends for golfers with the highest swing speed (105 + m.p.h.), the 2012 Tour B330.

“The new dual dimples on the cover of the B330 ball allows it to perform great in the wind,” Snedeker said.  “Even in the blustery conditions at East Lake, I had confidence in firing at pins coming down the stretch, because the ball holds its line so well.”

The rest of Snedeker’s equipment is a mixed bag — his driver, three wood and hybrid are from three different manufacturers and have shafts from three different shaft companies.

Driver: TaylorMade Burner SuperFast with a Fujikura Motore VC 7.2 X shaft.

Three wood: Tour Edge Exotics CB4 (13 degree) with a Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board 73X shaft.

Hybrid: Ping Anser (20 degree) with a UST Mamiya VTS 100X hybrid shaft (Black — low torque).

Snedeker also plays three different types of shafts in his irons and wedges. In his 4 iron through pitching wedge, he uses Aerotech Steelfiber i95 constant weight taper tip shafts — 95-gram shafts that are engineered with a graphite core that is surrounded by an outer layer of steel fiber.

His 52-and-56 degree wedges have traditional steel irons shafts, True Temper X100s. His lob wedge, which is a Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 60-degree wedge, has a True Temper DG Spinner shaft.

Snedeker rounds out his bag with his trusty Odyssey White Hot XG Rossie, giving him a total of six different club manufactures in his bag [Bridgestone, TaylorMade, Tour Edge, PING, Titleist (Vokey) and Callaway (Odyssey)].

Patrick Reed spotted with Artisan wedges, Nike irons at Farmers

Published

on

Patrick Reed signed a head-to-toe deal with Nike in January. The five-time PGA Tour winner began his professional career as a Nike staffer before signing with Callaway during the 2013 season, but now that he’s moved on from the chevron, he’s an equipment free agent.

Thus, we’ve been waiting to see what’s in Captain America’s bag since the news, and now we have the answer–and it includes some Artisan Golf wedges, which makes sense given the Nike/Mike Taylor/Texas connection.

Reed looks to be gaming a TaylorMade M3, as well as his old Nike VR Pro 3-wood. It looks like he’s got a Titleist T-MB 2-iron, and Nike VR Pro irons similar to what we spotted him with when he was a Swoosh staffer in 2013. Then, there’s the Artisan wedges (51, 56 and 60 degrees), and his trusty Odyssey flatstick.

Here’s a few shots of P. Reed’s new weaponry.

Check out all the Patrick Reed WITB shots in this thread.

Bushnell’s new Hybrid rangefinder features both laser and GPS technology

Published

on

With PGA Merchandise Show week upon us, the releases are coming fast and furious. This extends to the rangefinder space, where Bushnell debuts its new Hybrid model. The Hybrid combines both laser and GPS technologies (hence the name).

The Hybrid displays lasered distances to the flagstick, then relies on GPS for front-and back-of-the-green yardages.

“Hybrid provides golfers more information than ever before. The two technologies ‘talk’ so that the golfer sees the front and back distances of the green in relation to the pin that is targeted with unmatched accuracy by the laser,” said John DeCastro, Bushnell Golf Product Lane Director. “

The Hybrid also features Dual Power Technology to support the multi-function rangefinder. A CR2 battery powers the laser, and a USB rechargeable lithium ion battery powers the GPS.

Additional features

• PinSeeker w/ JOLT Technology
• Accurate to 1 yard
• 5X Magnification
• Ranges 400 yards to a Flag
• Fast Focus System
• Stable-Grip Technology
• Tournament Legal

GPS features

• Exterior Front/Center/Back Readouts
• Up to 4 hazard distances per hole
• Bluetooth for auto course updates
• Auto course recognition
• Auto hole advance

The Hybrid will be available at Bushnell Golf retailers nationwide beginning in April. Retail price is $399.99.
