Published

on

Michelle Wie has signed a multi-year equipment contract with Callaway Golf that will have the U.S. Women’s Open champion using the company’s golf clubs and balls, including an Odyssey putter.

“Joining Callaway feels like a natural partnership,” Wie said. “I believe that they make the best equipment in golf, and that their clubs are really going to help me have a great year. I also admire how they make the game fun and accessible to fans, and make them feel like they are part of the experience. That’s something that’s really important to me.”

The 27-year-old has been one of the most well-known golfers in the sport for the better part of her life. At the age of 10, she became the youngest player to qualify for a USGA Amateur Championship, the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links. At 13, she won the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links and became youngest ever make an LPGA Tour cut. At the age of 14, she played in a PGA Tour event, the Sony Open in her native Hawaii, barely missing the cut.

Since turning professional at the age of 16, Wie has won four times on the LPGA Tour, including the 2014 U.S. Women’s open. She also graduated from Stanford University, and has also competed on four U.S. Solheim Cup teams.

Wie is currently ranked No. 180 in the Rolex Rankings.

    I met her in Hawaii and she’s full of herself! I don’t wish her bad stuff, and hope with the new gear she’ll find her form and play well!
    Anyone who has a major against the very best on the planet has skills!

    I still think she’s a tool, though!

    For all you Nay sayers. Eat Crow. It’s amazing how many people can slam her. She’s great for women’s golf and golf in general. She’s got game and now that she’s graduated from Stanford and can concentrate full time on golf. Look out. Her last tournament is just getting her started to what the golf media pictured what she should be.

    Go WEIZY!!

    If anything, at least she got her degree from Stanford. Those are hard to come by these days. I was never a fan of her underbite or long waisted torso.

    Something tells me there will be some modeling of ladies golf attire involved. Her game sucks, but she ain’t ugly.

      Not ugly, but not very good looking either. Nice long legs though

    Wow….what was Callaway thinking here??? Her game has gone South quickly and still dropping. I guess they will take anyone after losing Lydia.

    In another two years, she’ll be writing letters for sponsor’s exemptions.

    She became rich from her contract with Nike. There was a time when she was expected to be one of the LPGA all time greats. Despite one notable win at Pinehurst, she is among the biggest examples of not achieving her potential in golf history. I wonder how much the 180th ranked player on the Ladies tour is worth in terms of marketing golf equipment? I’d wager that due to her looks and the amount of attention she receives it’s still a fairly sizable figure.

WRX Retrospective: Interesting photos from the 2019 Masters

Published

on

As of now, we know the 2020 Masters is going to have to wait until November. The tournament will be as exciting as it will be interesting since it will be the first modern glimpse into Augusta National beyond April.

It has also given us the great opportunity to look back with hindsight 20/20 (that was very much an unintended pun) at our pictures from 2019 to showcase some of the most noteworthy and interesting, including some potential foreshadowing of the week that was to come.

2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson isn’t one to change putters too often, but he must have been searching for something last year when testing out this TaylorMade Spider.

This was Viktor Hovland’s last Masters as an amateur. He won low amateur honors and went on to capture the same distinction at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

TaylorMade always does a wonderful job with major-themed accessories and bags. 2019 was no exception.

Little did we know at the time this was taken, this man would be leading heading into Sunday’s final round. How the tables turned so quickly.

Callaway’s collab with Seamus Golf lead to these flower-themed headcovers.

We can’t forget that Tuesday practice day was rained out and the course was closed at 10 a.m. to both players and spectators. It wasn’t the warm spring kickoff many had hoped for!

Although it was short-lived, it was a rainy Tuesday for all, including caddies.

The weather broke on Wednesday and the view up the 10th hole never gets old.

Did you realize two-time Masters champ Bubba Watson’s Flightscope has a custom pink paint job?

Inexpensive snacks and beverages are always a highlight of any Master’s visit.

The 2019 Masters featured pre-bulked Bryson, who also happened to have a custom FlightScope X3. He looks like a veritable stick!

They say a picture says 1,000 words, but in the case of Tiger Woods, we had no idea how many words would be written come Sunday.

A peek into the bag of Gary Woodland, who would go on to become the U.S. Open Champion only a few months later.

Special shoutout to Gary Woodland’s caddy Brennan Little, who hails from St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, and is obviously a big Toronto Blue Jays fan. He was also on the bag for Mike Wier’s win in 2003.

Although the relationship was short-lived, Sergio used some very cool custom Toulon putters while on staff with Callaway Golf.

The eighth green is one of the most interesting and mounded on the course, there’s not a bunker to be found but danger lurks everywhere.

Undulations at No. 1 are a sight to be seen at ground level.

The iconic, understated clubhouse of ANGC.

The tucked-away first tee spike cleaner is something every course should have.

And of course, the iconic 12th, where so much would be decided come Sunday.
