How far can Rory McIlroy drive the ball in a space suit? Find out.

First of all, hate to throw cold water on this thing, but Rory McIlroy hitting a golf ball in a space suit would have been a helluva lot more impressive if he were wearing the helmet. And it’s not like he didn’t have one.

Look! Put that on and belt a drive and you’ve earned the respect of everyone at GolfWRX and NASA.

Watch. And good on Omega for coming up with a more creative marketing initiative than the torture-by-sound of the Rory McIlroy “Hall of Fame” commercial on endless repeat.

This absolutely has nothing on astronaut Alan Shepard’s beautifully executed 6-iron punch shots on the surface of the moon, however. Sorry, it just doesn’t.

In fact, even if you’re a conspiracy theorist and believe the moon landing was a hoax, an amateur golfer successfully executive the half swing in full 450-pound Apollo-era space suit has Rory beat.

Some big claims are coming in concerning The ATTAS Shaft.

The party may be over for 2019, but this is still a pretty fun Mardi Gras themed Squareback putter.

More Swagtastic gear from, well, Swag.

Happy hump day GolfWRXers! In this segment, we’ll be taking a look at seven of the best #GolfWRX tagged photos on Instagram. In case you aren’t already, there’s a whole load of action going on at our page, so follow us along @golfwrx.

Let’s get to it then, here are seven of the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Ryan spent his time wisely in woodwork class in 1998, creating this sick Bespoke Scotty Cameron Newport Prototype putter. It may not work so good, but it looks the part.

Kanye at the Masters. My new favorite hype video for the year’s first major.

It looks like Dustin Johnson is the latest addition to add SuperSpeed to his game. The guy could do with a bit more ball speed and distance to be fair.

One for the Tyson Lamb lovers out there.

And the company also have these nice putter covers coming out today. Just in case you need that positive affirmation on the greens.

Dormie Workshops new Spring/Summer head cover collections include these beauties.

As far as surprises go on the golf course, this is up there. Although one Instagram member/undercover USGA rules official had this to say on the romantic moment: “Isn’t that a one-stroke penalty for assistance with lining up?”
