Why this putter is making a GolfWRX member physically sick

Published

on

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’.

    Nice little click bate headline. Thought there would be some interesting material to this thread.

    Chalk that up as another shank for a golfwrx article.

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…

Published

on

Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.

Published

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.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Report: No tickets will be sold for Tiger-Phil match

Published

on

Sorry, fans, you’re not going to be able to buy tickets to the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson $9 million megamatch at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, November 23.

Per a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, only a “small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be allowed on course. The report also indicates that, in contrast to Phil Mickelson’s promised primetime (ET) showdown, the match will be played under the Nevada sun. The official start time is yet to be announced, ditto the PPV price.

We corrected the promo graphic below to eliminate the crowd. But right-handed Tiger Woods swinging a left-handed club still needs fixing.

Woods is the -220 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mickelson is a +180 underdog.
