Why this putter is making a GolfWRX member physically sick



To understand why the putter pictured above nauseates GolfWRX member MGPT, some backstory is needed.

These days, Notah Begay makes his bones as an analyst/informant regarding friend Tiger Woods for Golf Channel. In a past life, however, he was a PGA Tour winner and the proprietor of one of the most curious approaches to putting at the professional level.

NB3, if you’ll recall, would putt left or right-handed depending on which way he expected the putt to break. Thus, he employed a tour version of the rubber two-sided mini-golf flatstick we’re all familiar with.

Back in 2013, WRX member R Hagen began a thread with a picture of this putter (he spotted it on Facebook) built for Begay by Nike’s now-defunct Oven facility in Texas.

The “N7” is a unique weapon, to say the least. A couple members commented on this singular putter head, and then forum thread went dark for nearly four years, as most threads do.

But then, this morning, GolfWRX member MGPT wrote

4 years later and still feel physically sick each and every day that I don’t own this putter. Has anyone ever seen one of these surface anywhere?

Thus far, nobody has replied indicating they’d seen the head for sale anywhere. Folks, the man is “physically sick each and every day.” We need to get him some relief. Pester Begay on Twitter! Knock on the door of Studio AP!

We take golf equipment-related illness very seriously here at GolfWRX. Let’s get MGPT some answers!

    Just a squared-off Bullseye and with some dubious face ornamentation. Oh well, it’s something to ‘love’.

The 5 best #GolfWRX photos on Instagram today



If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Tap the brakes on the Tiger Woods Express or “full steam ahead!”?



“Is Tiger Woods back?” This is the discussion among fans of this maddening game (even those whose heads explode at the question’s utterance).

GolfWRX member Kscarguy takes things a step further, suggesting that the field could soon be playing for second place, as was the case in Woods’ early 2000s heyday.

“I remember when tiger was at his peak and how he controlled everything related to golf. I remember interviews from various players and most of the questions asked to them was about tiger. Some if not most of the golfers got tired of answering same questions about tiger. When he was dominating the sport everyone was basically playing for second place. Just like when Hogan came back from the ashes of his injury so is tiger. But tiger is tiger and he will want to lay waste to all who tees it up during the week he plays. Is this the second (or whatever version we are at now) coming. I think we will see him dominate with scores, driving distance, short game. What does everyone else think?”

Yes, Tiger Woods is launching the ball off the tee Yes. His iron play looks excellent. Gone are questions about any “chipping yips,” and his putter looks pretty darn good. Yes, he finished tied for second at the Valspar Championship, his Sunday in his signature blood red coming up just short. Yes, he’s off to a strong start at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

But is the roaring blaze of enthusiasm too much? Or is it not enough? Could we be on the verge of another period of Woodsian dominance? GolfWRX members debate.

Mjen43 says

“His strokes gained stats are comparable to a typical world #1 so I expected him to win a lot, health permitting.”

MarkfromtheUK says not so fast

“Golf has far greater strength in depth now, than when TW was in his heyday. He could get his game back to where it was before all the injuries, but he won’t win as often. The current crop of players aren’t scarred by week after week of beat downs. The aura has dimmed somewhat.”

DavePelz4 represents the contingent wanting none of it

“For the love of all that is good, make it stop.”

Z1ggy says

“Okay now people… I love Tiger like the rest of us but he’s had ONE good showing out of 3 as of late. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves… If he can finish in the top 5 this week I’ll commit to saying that “he’s back”. Until then, I’m remaining skeptical.”

Darth Putter says

“We are at the “let’s win a tournament” part. Let’s worry about the “Winning a major” and “Tiger 2000” steps when we get there.”

The discussion is just getting started at this point in the thread, so you’ll want to get your popcorn and click through to see what GolfWRX members are saying, and of course, let us know what you think.

Check out the thread.

A fan sent Tiger Woods’ doctor a fruit basket. What would GolfWRX members send?



The wait has been long and the setbacks many for Twitter user “claire rOGers” and Tiger Woods’ fans across the world.

So when Woods sent his latest thunderbolt into the golf mediaverse with his opening-round 68 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Rogers decided it was time to give credit where it’s (partially) due: Tiger’s surgeon Richard Guyer of the Texas Back Institute, where the golfer had fusion surgery last April.

Roger’s note with the basket reads: “Dr. Guyer – THANK you for making TIGER WOODS great again!! Sincerely, a loyal fan.”

A quick survey of Rogers’ timeline reveals she is a card-carrying Tiger Woods superfan of the very first order. Check out this sparking gem of a tweet. Who approaches this level of mad devotion? Brilliance.

Now, the Edible Arrangment is one way to go, to be sure. A recent classic in the gift basket universe, yes, but we’d like to know what GolfWRX members would send Dr. Guyer for his resurrection of Tiger Woods.
