Patrick Reed signs with Nike Golf, is no longer on staff with Callaway

Published

on

The shushing, top-5 claiming, ultra-passionate golfing Patrick Reed has inked an apparel and footwear deal with Nike Golf, according to reports. And he announced his new deal with a Nike Golf/American flag photoshop that suits the superstar Ryder Cupper and alpha-American perfectly.

Also, as GolfWRX Members speculated, Reed is “no longer officially with Callaway,” according to a Callaway representative.

As forum user cvhookem63 pointed out, the last time we saw Reed without a bag full of Callaway clubs was in 2013 when he played mostly Swoosh clubs. Since Nike no longer makes golf equipment, it will be interesting to see what clubs end up in his bag for 2018.

    Next contract will be PXG. Hopefully he doesnt get the same clothes as JDay.

    Give the guy a break… so he’s a little hefty, where does it state you have to be chiseled to be considered an athlete? It’s all about what he does in the course.

    My question is what sticks will he have in the bag. I could see him going PXG considering he was using that 3 iron for the longest time. Or maybe a mixed set like Keopka.

      Little hefty, but tears up the golf course like a beast. Who cares what size he wears, the guy is a great golfer. And his Ryder Cup performance was legendary. Love seeing him play.

        You guys are so right! He is tearing up that course….one bogie at a time. Sad performances. Burning bridges and poor performances are not the best route to be on when the curtain is closing…

    Interesting that he went back to Nike, since he was with them before.

    But also an odd choice for Nike to go back to him, since they like to call their players “athletes.” I know that professional golfers are athletic, but some just have a different body type to portray what an athlete should look like. There are a few Nike staffers that seem to be interesting picks.

    I mean, when you put up Patrick Reed next to Brooks Koepka, a big difference there.

    At least with this apparel deal, he will have more than four outfits. I swear, he wore the same slacks all the time on multiple days.

      He may have left Nike due to the clubs since they were an ‘all or nothing’ sponsor of golfer, save for the occasional putter. Now that Nike is out of clubs, he’s free to play what he wants. I’m sure all Nike apparel deals are sweet enough that players can bag whatever they want.

    Hopefully that will mean we will never see him ever again in those terribly unfortunate trousers that had those gawd-awful rear pockets with the cutesy plaid flappy thingies. Those things were just so wrong. . .

Photos of Sergio Garcia’s Ryder Cup-themed Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter

Published

on

Sergio Garcia, who was given a controversial captain’s pick to play in the 2018 Ryder Cup next week in France, is playing in the Portugal Masters this week using a new, custom Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter with European team colors. The putter has Euro-themed yellow, blue and white paint fills on the sole and back of the head, and stars that represent the European flag on the side.

Using the putter, Sergio’s off to a hot start at the Portugal Masters, played at Victoria Clube de Golfe, shooting a round of 5-under to put him at T6. He discusses the custom Toulon putter here:

Familiar with the style of putter, Sergio used a Odyssey Toulon Atlanta model to win on the European Tour last year, and has used several different Toulon models throughout 2018. The Atlanta model in particular is characterized by Odyssey as a mid-sized mallet that’s “fully milled with a multi-material aluminum sole plate and short-slant hosel.” It also has Toulon’s familiar diamond face milling.

To learn more about diamond face milling and Sean Toulon himself, check out our recent TG2 podcast with him below.

Titleist releases new Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind

Published

on

The Vokey SM7 L Grind proved to be a welcome addition for those golfers who were looking to excel around the greens on firm conditions. The enhanced heel, toe and trailing edge grind provided the lowest bounce option available from Titleist upon its release.

Now, Titleist has announced the release of their new Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind. Just like the L Grind, the latest release from Titleist is a low-bounce option designed for players with a shallow attack angle playing in firm conditions, however, the new T Grind’s dual-bounce sole allows the wedge to sit closer to the ground, making it easier to get the leading edge under the ball and promoting lift. According to Titleist, the dual bounce sole creates a narrow, forward bounce which helps to provide a gliding sensation.

The new Vokey T Grind proved a popular choice at the Open Championship earlier this year, where the conditions were firm and fast. Charley Hoffman and Cameron Smith were just two of the PGA Tour professionals who decided to put the T Grind into their bag for the test at Carnoustie, and Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill explained just why it is such a great option to have on firm golf courses:

“When we arrived at Carnoustie and saw how firm and fast the course was playing, it was clear that the T Grind was going to be a great option. Bob crafted the T Grind to have low bounce that can be easily manipulated while keeping the leading edge close to the turf. It really excels when faced with those hard, unforgiving lies.”

The limited edition 60-degree T Grind features a brand new, ultra-premium Slate Blue finish, and those who desire can even get their T Grind customized. Customers will have the option to avail of Titleist’s personalized stamping of up to 10 characters and in one of 12 paintfill colors.

The Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60-degree T Grind is available now through Wedgeworks at Vokey.com or by custom order, starting at $250.
