Pieters’ meters stamping, Adam Scott’s no-longer-long putter, sweet setups galore at Riviera

Published

on

GolfWRX is live at Hogan’s Alley, Riviera Country Club, for the Genesis Open where the pros’ bags are in mid-season form. We’ll take a little deeper dive into our three galleries of drool-worthy equipment pics from Monday, as well as our in-hand shots of the bags of Thomas Pieters, Tommy Fleetwood, Haotong Li, Xinjun Zhang, and Adam Scott.

You’re here for the photos, so let’s cut the babble and dive in.

Thomas Pieters’ meters! The Belgian has what we assume to be his stock distances (in meters) stamped on his Apex Pros. Metric system sauce.

 

Former Nike staffer, Tommy Fleetwood, just can’t shake those Nike Vapor Fly woods and VR Pro irons.

 

Also, did he get a couple on inches chopped off his famous locks? (Serious golf equipment question)

Tommy’s Odyssey White Hot Pro has seen a lot of use, but why deviate from the money-making machine?

Now THAT is a tee mark, Xinjun Zhang. Looks like the Twist Face vaporized it.

The Goldfinger in all of us loves the Basileus’ shaft art.

Just call him Scotty “3 Gloves” Scheffler. Amateur winner of the Collegiate Showcase doesn’t need a staff bag, but he does need to ensure a secure grip on his clubs.

It’s that dictator Jordan Spieth and his peasant caddie. (Note: This makes no sense if you haven’t seen Billy Hurley’s attack ad, which you should)

When you grind the loft off there, you have to stamp it here.

If you were Haotong Li, this is what your custom Bettinardi SS3 would look like at address.

Adam Scott: A short putter-er again.

(And an absolutely savage putter it is)

Don’t worry, Scott is still 680 MB till he dies.

Plenty of high-lofted nastiness from the Australian.

In other news, Piretti. G$S, indeed.

As you might guess, Sam Saunders’ putter cover honors his late grandfather. May it always.

So much good stuff going on in Anirban Lahiri’s bag.

One of several stations at the Circle T buffet.

Stunning golf course everywhere inside the box…

For much, much more of the above, check out the rest of our photos from Monday at Riviera.

Mizuno announces new JPX 919 Tour Forged irons are coming August 29 (via cryptic Twitter post)

Published

on

While cryptic, it does appear Mizuno is announcing via Twitter that its new JPX 919 Tour irons are coming on 8/29/18. One would have to assume that means they will be launched on 8/29, not actually hitting retail on 8/29, but that remains to be seen.

We recently spotted a number of new irons on the USGA conforming list, including the JPX919 Tour irons pictured above, JPX919 Forged and JPX919 Hot Metal irons from Mizuno. So it’s likely that the JPX 919 Tour Forged irons won’t be alone in the JPX 919 family when they hit retail.

The JPX 919 Tour iron specifically pictured in the Tweet above seems to be the replacement for Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons that Brooks Koepka used to win this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Learn more about the original JPX 900 Tour design from Mizuno’s Chris Voshal on our Gear Dive podcast.

Diving a bit deeper into the picture from Mizuno’s Tweet, it appears the JPX919 Tour irons will utilize Mizuno’s familiar Grain Flow forging, and will be made from 1025E; that’s based on the hosel stamping that says “GF Forged HD 1025E.”

Stay tuned for more info from Mizuno.
