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.

Wednesday’s photos from the 2019 Terra Cotta Invitational

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the 2019 Terra Cotta Invitational at Naples National Golf Club, which will be contested April 26-28. Past winners of the amateur event include Justin Thomas and Emiliano Grillo.

Denny Glass, chairman of the Terra Cotta Invitational, was kind enough to give us a little more information about the tournament.

For GolfWRX members who aren’t familiar, tell me a little bit about the tournament and its history

Glass: The Terra Cotta Invitational began in 1996 and was originally a combination stroke play/match play event. 20 players were invited and they played 36 holes of stroke play then the top four finishers went on to match play with the others playing an 18 hole consolation match.

I changed it to a 54-hole stroke play event with 50 players in 2006 when I took over as Tournament Chair. This was done to be eligible for Titleist/Golfweek Amateur Ranking Points. The field increased over the years and now has 75-81 players. The tournament is now ranked as a “B” level event in the WAGR (World Amateur Golf Rankings) run by the USGA and R&A. This ranking is one level below the top-ranked events in the world. The WAGR rankings are based on the strength of the field so we are proud to be ranked so highly.

As it’s an invitational tournament, can you tell me a bit about who gets invited in general and who’s in the field this year, specifically? Tournament format?

Glass: It is an invitational so we invite as many of the top-ranked amateur players as are available. The field consists of many juniors (up to age 18), mid-amateurs (19-25) and some seniors (50+), along with collegiate players. While it is an invitational, we still receive more than 150 applications to play.

Can you talk about the host course and the relationship with Naples National?

The tournament is played at Naples National Golf Club. The tournament was started by the membership back in 1996. The club opened in 1993. The club hosted the World Championship of Golf, which was an LPGA event in its second year.

I know the charitable impact is important. Can you tell us about that?

The net proceeds are donated to Naples based children’s focused charities. The tournament has donated over $517,000 since it began.
