Xander Schauffele signs with adidas Golf and Callaway

Published

on

Xander Schauffele is getting a whole new look and arsenal heading into 2018.

After officially announcing that it signed 2017 Masters Champion and future Hall-of-Famer Sergio Garcia, Callaway announced today that it has signed one of the game’s top rising stars in 2017 Rookie of the Year, Xander Schauffele. adidas Golf has also signed Schauffele to a multi-year apparel and footwear deal.

“I’m honored to be a part of the Callaway team,” said Schauffele, according to a Callaway press release. “I’m focused on taking my game to a new level, and having the right equipment plays a big part in that. I’ve been so impressed with how Callaway clubs have performed for me, from the first time I started testing them during the offseason, and I’ve been using an Odyssey putter for years. So this really was a natural transition, and I’m really confident in how their equipment will help improve every part of my game.”

Schauffele — who will play Callaway metalwoods, irons, wedges, an Odyssey putter and a Chrome Soft golf ball — had a break out 2016-2017 season. He won the 2017 Greenbrier, finished T5 at the 2017 U.S. Open, and then won the 2017 Tour Championship to finish third overall in the FedExCup Playoffs. The 24-year-old is currently ranked 25th on the Official World Golf Rankings after turning professional in 2015; he earned his PGA Tour card through the Web.com Finals.

As always, we will provide photos of all his new clubs and shafts once we have them! Stay tuned.

    I am so pleased with [insert name of manufacturer] clubs as they are paying me more money than any other manufacturer is willing to do. Off the record. I can play the same with any manufacturer’s clubs.

    Why has the latest Tursky equipment article, namely:
    “That one time Dustin Johnson got super protective over his M3 weight setup”
    …… cancelled the Comments section?
    The M3 with the controversial TWIST FACE on the M3 driver is possibly one of the most groundbreaking design innovation in driver technology.
    As for Dustin’s M3 weight setup shown in the picture, it appears he wants the weights shifted closest to the clubface thus bringing the driver CG well forward. Recreational golfers will want to have the CG pulled back for more gear effect.
    Now the gear effect is being optimized with the Twist Face.
    Why has WRX eliminated a comments section on this article and others?

Mizuno JPX 919 Tour Forged, 919 Forged, and 919 Hot Metal hit USGA’s conforming list

Published

on

As alerted by our always investigative GolfWRX Forum Members, three new Mizuno JPX irons have shown up recently on the USGA Conforming Clubs list; JPX 919 Forged (there is no image of the RH version, but there is of the LH), JPX 919 Hot Metal (and LH), and a JPX 919 Tour Forged iron.

Although still unannounced and unreleased by Mizuno, it’s likely these JPX 919 irons will be the replacements for the previous JPX 900 series. If you remember, Brooks Koepka won back-to-back U.S. Opens using JPX 900 Tour irons; now, it seems there may be a replacement for that iron on the way, judging by the USGA Conforming List.

Check out the Mizuno JPX 919 irons below, as listed on the USGA Confirming list.

SPOTTED: Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons

Published

on

Photos have recently popped up in our GolfWRX Forums of Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons. It’s been nearly two years since the company released it’s previous Z565, Z765 and Z965 irons, so it’s possible (if not likely), based on nomenclature, these could be the replacements for that series.

The photos in our forums show Z785 short irons (5-PW) and Z785 long irons (4 and 3), but it does not appear that the Z785 irons shown in the photos are driving irons, so it’s likely these photos come from a mixed set.

We do not have any official tech or release information about new irons from Srixon at this time, so we’re left to speculate for the time being. What do you think about the photos of these Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons?

Check out the photos of each below, and click here for more photos and discussion.
