Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from the 2017 Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi. The course, which will be a combination of the Dogwood and Azalea nines, will play as par-72 measuring 7,421 yards for the event.

While most of the top-ranked players in the world are competing in China this week at the WGC-HSBC Champions, the Sanderson Farms Championship is set to host some notables including Zac Blair, Angel Cabrera, Luke Donald, Harris English, Chesson Hadley, Beau Hossler, Smylie Kaufman, Hunter Mahan, Davis Love III, Shawn Stefani, Daniel Summerhays, Brendon Todd and more.

Cody Gribble won last year’s event by four shots after starting off with a first-round 73; he closed 63-67-65 in his final three rounds. Gribble is back in the field this year to defend his title.

      Gearheads only fall in love with the fancy backs of the irons and the pretty graphics on the shafts. Even grips are getting fancy treatment with multi-colors. Golf clubs are so eye-catching nowadays and make one proud to own a set of beautiful weapons.

    Love the wicked channels on the back of the Miura irons. I bet they work wonders for off center impact and looks great for WITB.
    Only thing that bothers me is the hosels being welded to the club body for Miura irons. Obviously cheaper to forge the body and weld on the hosel with a messy weld bead filled with strange grain patterns.
    Oh well… sell the Miura, not the steak …..

      Spin welding leaves no weld beads in addition spin welding by design is the most accurate way to have absolutely precise offset, alignment and hosel placement across an entire production run. Why do you need uniform grain structure in a hosel? Spin welding layers metal on metal and the metal is bonded via high pressure friction. You should look into the process, Miura has released alot of media about the process itself.

        But that forged ‘buttery feeel’ of impact must be transmitted through the hosel into the shaft and into the golfer’s hands.
        Does that mean a discontinuous grain welding bead can effectively transmit that ‘feeel’….. and if so what’s the use of having a forged clubhead when it is disconnected by a ‘spin weld’ from the hosel and shaft?
        Isn’t it Mizuno who brag about their “grain flow” forging process from the toe to the heel to the end of the hosel?
        So which is superior… a complete and uniform forging or a no-hosel forging with a welded steel tube for the hosel?

          Good point….. and are golf clubs “hot” forged or only cast steel given a “cold forged” nominal stamping so they can be labelled “forged”? There is a world of difference between hot and cold forging with the latter being much cheaper because it does not “form” forge the club head; it only affects the surface of the club head.
          Ignorant golfers can be so easily scammed to believe they have something special in their clubs.

            And then there are ‘fake-forged’ clubs like TMs P-790 with a thin ‘roll’ forged faceplate and the rest of the clubhead is a cheap steel casting.

GolfWRX is live from the U.S. Women’s Amateur at the Golf Club of Tennessee in Kingston Springs, a venue which most recently hosted the 2006 Tennessee State Open.

The USGA fielded a record 1,468 entries for the competition, in which Kristen Gillman, Kaylee Benton, Laren Stephenson, and Jiwon Jeon are still alive in match play.

From WITB looks to shots of the superb Fazio course to some high art calligraphy (see below) we have it all.

10 interesting photos from Tuesday at the PGA Championship

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club where the game’s best are tuning up for the final major of the year.

We have plenty of photos for your viewing pleasure, and you can find all our galleries from Monday and Tuesday, well, in the hyperlinks in “Monday” and “Tuesday.” What follows is a curation of 10 interesting photos.

With respect to the aforementioned tuning up, many pros were doing it in shorts, per the PGA of America’s relaxed pre-tournament leg baring regulations (blasphemy!).

Thus, it was a different kind of leg day at the PGA. How about Phil with the calves?

The Scotty Cameron jester stamp is underrated. Yes or no?

It looks like somebody has dropped their…playing cards, yes, playing cards, that’s right…next to Danny Balin’s bag

Zach Johnson is now a TaylorMade staffer? What? He just switched whole cloth. Crazy! (This bag belongs to PGA Pro Zach Johnson who qualified for the tournament, not the PGA Tour’s ZJ)

Well, that’s quite the putter grip, Brian Smock…

Rory McIlroy is reportedly considering playing the final major of the year left-handed, inspired by our editor Andrew Tursky

While Brian Smock’s putter “grip” is highly questionable, his wedge game is on point (c/o Anthony Taranto, no doubt)

Eddie Pepperell with spotted with a Bettinardi in the bag

Forgive the 3-in-1 photo love, but we believe Jimmy Walker’s wand is Tyson Lamb’s first putter on the PGA Tour.

Also on the putter firsts front: Charles Howell III is one of the first players we’ve seen with the new Scotty Cameron CX-01 in the bag.

Tuesday’s photos from the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the 2018 PGA Championship at par-70 Bellerive Country Club in Town and Country, Missouri.

The 7,317-yard track will play host to a major championship for just the third time in its history as one of the most venerable clubs in the St. Louis area. The most recent PGA Tour event contested at Bellerive was the 2008 BMW Championship, and the Robert Trent Jones track was also the venue  for the 2013 Senior PGA Championship.

Last week’s winner, Justin Thomas, is the fourth major’s defending champion, and he’ll look to hold off a field that features all but two of the top 112 golfers in the world all looking to snatch the Wanamaker Trophy. Thomas, Dustin Johnson, and Rory McIlroy enter as favorites.

Check out our photos from the 2018 PGA Championship below!
