Morgan Hoffmann honors “The King” with special Vokey wedge stampings

Published

on

The 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge is as much a tribute to Arnold “The King” Palmer — who passed away on September 25, 2016 — as a competitive PGA Tour event. All participants and attendees will surely honor the late golfing legend in their own way.

Our photos from Monday show that Morgan Hoffmann will be honoring Arnie with special stampings on his Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges.

52-degree: The “Arnold Palmer” Drink

Any mention of the Arnold Palmer drink — a concoction of Iced Tea and Lemonade — just doesn’t feel right without also mentioning the greatest sports commercial ever made.

Of all the things Arnold Palmer has done on and off the golf course, his idea to combine two respectively tasty beverages into one was possibly his most genius.

58-degree: The King’s Umbrella

The logo for “The King’s” corporation is a patented rainbow umbrella, which has more of a stealthy look on Hoffmann’s wedges.

Based on a few minutes worth of research and deductive reasoning, the “N4316F” stamping references Hoffmann’s Piper Saratoga plane, and the “N1AP” is Arnold Palmer’s Cessna Citation Jet.

    There is probably a place in every decent sized city that does laser etching, It’s pretty simple, they just create a vector file and then burn it into the metal with white, black, or a bronze type color. There’s also a fiber laser that stamps into metal deep enough to use a paint fill. I had my vokes done a few months ago.

Bettinardi signs LPGA duo Muni He and Albane Valenzuela

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has announced its partnership with LPGA rising stars Muni He and Albane Valenzuela.

Muni He, who qualified for the LPGA Tour in 2019 and is well-known for her large platform and fashion influence on social media, will use Bettinardi’s DASS QB8 Mid-Slant Tour Dept. putter.

He’s DASS QB8 Mid-Slant Tour Dept. putter is milled to 360 grams and features an oil rubbed bronze PVD finish. The flat-stick is constructed of double aged stainless steel and contains the brand’s F.I.T face milling.

The 21-year-old returned to action last week at the LPGA Tour’s Marathon Classic and will tee it up once again with the Bettinardi putter in her bag at this week’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open.

Speaking on joining Team Bettinardi, He stated

“I’m very excited to join the Bettinardi family. The putter gives me great confidence on the greens and hoping that I could bring out my best game for the rest of the season with the support of the Bettinardi team.”

The company have also signed the Chilean Albane Valenzuela to its tour staff, who will tee it up this week using Bettinardi’s INOVAI 6.0 Tour Dept. putter.

The 22-year-old joined the LPGA Tour after being awarded the Pac-12 Women’s Golfer of the Year while at Stanford University. Other accolades include representing Switzerland at the 2016 Olympics, twice finishing runner up in the U.S. Women’s Amateur as well as being an ANNIKA Award finalist.

Speaking after joining Bettinardi, Valenzuela said

”I am thrilled to partner with Bettinardi Golf as I begin my professional career. The company’s technology, craftsmanship and attention to detail give me the confidence that I will be competing with the best putters in my bag. The ability to work with Bettinardi’s designers to customize a putter that optimizes my stroke will be a huge asset for me.”

He and Valenzuela are the latest LPGA players to join Team Bettinardi which features the likes of Annie Park and China’s No. 2 player, Yu Liu.
