9 great finds in Masters-themed gear, apparel, and more

Published

on

It’s time for a tradition unlike any other: Masters-themed equipment and apparel, of course. You know, equipment inspired by Pimento Cheese sandwiches, Azaleas, Georgia peaches, Amen Corner, and anything green-and-yellow.

Here’s a look at a few of the products that caught our eye ahead of the Masters.

Sugarloaf Social Club/MacKenzie Par-3 Bag

Inspired by the Masters Par-3 Contest, MacKenzie and Sugarloaf teamed up to design this superb six-inch-in-diameter carry bag to haul a few clubs.

Gnome

While available only at the official Masters merchandise shop at Augusta National, the Masters Yard Gnome (in his Augusta National caddie suit!) is a must-have. MMO golf can get you one…or there’s always eBay.

Nike Magnolia Pack

Nike is yet to release its full “Magnolia Pack,” but check out the Roshe G bearing Augusta’s signature flower.

State Traditions’ Georgia hat

State Traditions’ Georgia hat is a subtle ode to the home state of the Masters.

Edel Flagstick putter cover

Edel’s putter covers inspired by ANGC’s iconic flagsticks. Brilliant!

Swing Juice “Local Legend” tee

If you want to appeal to hardcore golf fans with a less-than-obvious Masters-related tee, try this Jeff Knox-inspired piece.

Lee Wybranski Masters commemorative poster

Golf’s resident artist, Lee Wybranski, is at it again with his Masters commemorative poster.

Life & Loft “Augusta”

Continuing with the “things to hang on your wall” theme, Lie & Loft’s Augusta print showcases the fames layout in a minimalist fashion.

Ahead Jack Nicklaus “Majors” Cap

Masters colors + Golden Bear + number of Jack’s green jackets on the side = awesome headwear.

    Last May a bronze statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee was removed from New Orleans. Maybe Augusta National should be plowed under based on it’s past politically incorrect history.

      Lee’s statue will do quite nicely for the time being.

    Shouldn’t the Masters Yard Gnome be Afromerican? 😮

Bettinardi signs Eddie Pepperell

Published

on

Eddie Pepperell is a singular quantity in to world of golf, so it’s not surprising that the Englishman has taken a unique route to becoming a Bettinardi staffer.

20 months ago, the two-time European Tour winner walked into Core Golf in Thame, Oxfordshire, and bought four putters, including a Bettinardi Studio Stock No. 8.

Pepperell, who jumped from No. 513 to No. 38 in the OWGR since putting the Bettinardi in play in April 2017, won’t have to pay for his putters any more. He joins the likes Francesco Molinari, Haotong Li, and Matt Kuchar as a Bettinardi staffer, the company announced the today.

“I’ve tried a number of putters and time and again, it’s the one model I keep coming back to.” said Eddie. “Positively I won’t have to buy a Bettinardi putter again, but having bought four putters from Core Golf I’m just hoping I haven’t put them of business as a result!” he added.

It was after Pepperell’s British Masters triumph in October that negotiations to bring him on board began in earnest.

“Once Eddie stayed ahead of a strong field at the British Masters to win his second Tour title of the year with a Bettinardi putter, we decided to reopen negotiations and we’re delighted with the outcome. It means that we now have another top 50 player in the world playing Bettinardi putters…” said Executive Vice President, Sam Bettinardi.

Here are the specs for his Studio Stock No. 8, courtesy of Bettinardi, which also provided the photos below of Pepperell’s putter (pre rust).

Material: Mild Carbon Steel
Finish: Mercury Gray PVD Finish
Face Milling: F.I.T. Face
Weight: 358 grams
Length: 33.25”
Lie: 71 degrees
Loft: 3 degrees
