Equipment

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.

Jimmy Walker spotted testing a Titleist prototype driver?

Published

on

As spotted by GolfWRX Forum Member “anthony007,” Jimmy Walker was shown on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive hitting an unidentified driver at the Warrior Open.

In anthony007’s forum post, along with the photo, he asks the question “Is this a new Driver from Titleist?”

Well, it’s hard to tell from the grainy photo exactly what the driver says on the sole. But then Jimmy Walker himself posted on Twitter saying: “Great catch! Its always fun to test new prototypes and the [Titleist on Tour] guys have given me some cool toys to play with that are incredible – but unfortunately I can’t talk about them yet!”

While the response is a bit cryptic, it does seem that Walker confirms he was indeed testing a Titleist prototype driver.

What do you think?

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
