Paul Casey debuts a limited colorway of Nike’s new “Lunar Control Vapor 2” golf shoes

Published

on

We spotted new Nike Golf shoes on the feet of Paul Casey at the 2017 Tour Championship, which at first appeared to be some sort of unreleased version of Nike’s Lunar Control Vapor shoes. Like the original Vapors released in 2016, Casey’s shoes at the Tour Championship feature what looks to be the “Articulated Traction” soles that have ridges instead of spikes.

The man himself, however, has confirmed on our Instagram post that these are a limited colorway of Nike’s new and unreleased Lunar Control Vapor 2 golf shoes.

PaulCaseyInstagramThanks for clearing that up, Paul.

GolfWRX members have extremely mixed opinions in our forums about the new shoes and the dual colorway. Make sure to read the full thread here, and to check out more photos of the shoe itself.

    These shoes should be declared ‘illegal’ because of the dual sole pattern. Golf shoe outer soles should be plain and uniform and not be designed to provide undue advantage.
    Many years ago there was a golf shoe that had internally ‘canted’ insoles that provided better alignment between the foot sole and leg angle so as to better wedge the foot and shoe into the ground. They were banned.
    So why not ban these shoes with outer sole patterns designed to do the same thing?!!

          This comment is an absolute peach. You’re joking right? You just want to ban anything that is an improvement on the past? What about your 460cc driver? Your iron shafts? Your wedges with more and deeper grooves? Your ball?!

          Better go ahead and return every club in your bag if that’s the case. Take back your motocaddy that saved you energy, and your breathable waterproofs that keep you dry without cooking you. Take back your golf shift that flexes as you swing.

          Get some perspective dude. Spend less time talking about the past and start thinking about the future of golf.

          ‘Juniors’ might just be the only thing keeping your club going…

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.
