Tiger Woods commits to U.S. Open at Shinnecock

Published

on

It’s official: Tiger Woods will tee it up in the the U.S. Open at Shinnecock, the USGA announced, Thursday.

Woods hasn’t been in the field for a U.S. Open since 2015. The 14-time major winner has competed in two Opens at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. As an amateur in 1995, Woods withdrew during his second round with a wrist injury. In 2004, Woods tied for 17th at the Southampton, N.Y. course.

Woods won the U.S. Open in 2000 at Pebble Beach. He won again in 2002 at Bethpage Black and in 2008 at Torrey Pines in a playoff over Rocco Mediate. The latter is his most recent major championship.

Woods has won a total of nine USGA events: three U.S. Junior Amateurs, three U.S. Amateurs, and three U.S. Opens.
Check out a few of TW’s thoughts on the challenge ahead in this USGA-tweeted video (and check out the wind whipping Retief Goosen’s pant legs to underscore Woods’ points!)

The 118th U.S. Open will be contested June 14-17.

Danny Willett spotted with new Odyssey prototype putter, putter shaft

Published

on

You may have seen Danny Willett’s name near the top of the leaderboard at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. At 10 under, the Englishman sits one stroke behind fellow countryman Matt Wallace.

You may not have seen, however, that the 2016 Masters champ has a new Odyssey prototype putter in the bag.

All the company would say

“Willett first put in his new gamer last week at the Nedbank Challenge. Willett’s prototype putter also features a new prototype Odyssey shaft to help improve the consistency of the putting stroke.”

Willet has historically favored his blade-style Odyssey O-Works #1 W. More recently, at the Turkish Airlines Open, we spotted him with an Odyssey Versa Jailbird Black. However, the prototype in question is clearly a heel-shafted mallet with a different insert than the 1 W or the Jailbird. The insert looks to be the White Hot Microhinge. Obviously, the two-tone, potentially multi-material, shaft, and the technology therein, is notable as well. Also apparently two-tone, the putter head, which looks similar in shape to a Tank Cruiser and similarly has a pair of sole weights.

Do we need the TG2 to break down the few photos we have like the Zapruder film? We’ll continue digging, in the meantime, let us know what you think, GolfWRX Members!
