GolfWRX’s photos of Tiger Woods’ irons through the years

Published

on

From the time he emerged on Tour with a blended set of Mizuno irons, through his Titleist 681 irons, through his transition to Nike blades, Tiger Woods’ forged blade irons have had a similar look and similar specs.

Since the 14-time major champion inked a deal with TaylorMade in 2017, GolfWRX Members have been eagerly waiting to see what irons Tiger Woods, TaylorMade staffer, would play. Woods had been gaming a set of TGR Prototype irons while working with TM to design a set of irons. But finally, we got an in-hand look at the long-anticipated TaylorMade TW-Phase1 irons at the Wells Fargo Championship on Tuesday.

See what GolfWRX members are saying about the TW-Phase 1 irons here.

Here’s an in-hand look at Woods’ hot-off-the-polishing wheel TW-Phase1 8-iron.

Flashing all the way back to 2012 (the early days of the GolfWRX main page!), here are a couple of shots of Woods’ Nike VR Pro Blades.

In 2013, we spotted Woods with another VR Pro Blade model

In 2014, more of the same/similar Nike VR Pro Blades

In 2015, the Big Cat switched to Nike Vapor Pro Blades

…but then he returned to Nike VR Pro irons during his injury-marred 2016-2017 campaign

When Woods returned at the 2017 Hero World Challenge, through his appearance at this year’s Masters, he was was gaming these TGR Prototypes.

And as a bonus throwback: This forum picture of Tiger’s Nike irons from way back in 2005.

    And before all that it was PING, which he probably should go back too. After all, he has all the money he needs, now it is all about playing, and,,,,,,,,,winning?

    Beautiful new irons in Tigers bag. Guess there is no hi tech in these. That picture of his putter looks pretty dinged up. If it’s always covered I don’t see how it got so banged up. I keep mine covered and it looks great still

      Yeah, what is Tiger doing with his putter? Flying around the world all the time playing golf or something?

      I just love the look Tiger’s new TM blades but I’m happy with my fantastic PXGs better than advertised.

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.

10 of the best historical Ryder Cup-themed apparel and memorabilia finds

Published

on

Ryder Cup pandemonium is about to kick in, and there’s plenty of fun souvenirs that golf fans can get their hands on before it all begins.

With just over a week to go until the main event gets underway, we thought we’d take a look at some of the coolest, and rarest, Ryder Cup-themed memorabilia out there.

2018 Ryder Cup 16oz. Pint Glass

Why not start with a product from the 2018 Ryder Cup collection? Featuring the official Ryder Cup logo and the name of the host course, this pint glass is perfect for sipping on a few cold ones while enjoying the three days of action. You can pick one up here.

2014 USA Ryder Cup Team Sweaters

Well, the 2014 Ryder Cup was a bit of a disaster for Team U.S.A, but these Ralph Lauren sweaters featuring the flag of the United States were a success. Even as a European I wanted one. I think I still want one.

1997 Ryder Cup ball markers, pitch repairer, golf tees from Valderrama 

The 1997 Ryder Cup was yet another classic, and this little golf set which is available for under $25, is a nice souvenir for both fans of the Ryder Cup and the great Seve Ballesteros, who captained Team Europe to a memorable victory that year. Check it out here.

1987 Ryder Cup Money Clip

Stepping back in time, this gold money clip featuring details from the 1987 Ryder Cup is an eye catcher, and it’s available here on eBay (Although it’s not exactly cheap!).

2016 Ryder Cup Hazeltine Collector Edition Knit Golf Covers

The 2016 Ryder Cup was a blowout win for the U.S. team, and although most die-hard U.S. fans won’t exactly be rushing to buy Ryder Cup memorabilia from the 21st century, these driver and hybrid headcovers are a definite winner. Check them out here.

2010 Scotty Cameron Ryder Cup Team Europe Blade Putter Headcover

The detail of this headcover is a piece of art. Featuring the European flag and the Welsh dragon, this putter headcover from Titleist is a must for any European fan feeling nostalgic over that victory at Celtic Manor. Available on eBay here.

1995 Ryder Cup Oak Hill Golf Visor Hat

Heres’ another item for the Europeans. Golf visors are quite retro on their own these days, and this visor comes from the 1995 Ryder Cup, which was the first time Europe recovered from a deficit heading into the singles action to win the cup. One of the cheaper selections on this list, you can find it here.

1991 Ryder Cup Programme

The 1991 Ryder Cup, nicknamed ‘The War On The Shore’, was one of the most intense Ryder Cups of all time. This mint condition programme would fit nicely into anyone’s Ryder Cup collection, but especially those from the U.S., whose side triumphed that year. Available here.

2012 Ryder Cup DVD: The Miracle At Medinah

Not exactly rare, but all Team Europe supporters will likely want to re-watch this classic contest at some point in the future. Easy to find and under $10 too.

1999 U.S. Ryder Cup Shirt

I’ve saved the best for last. This shirt will forever be remembered for what is arguably the most well known Ryder Cup moment, Justin Leonard draining a monster putt to set off wild celebrations from Team U.S.A. The shirt, although hideous, is a collectors dream with only 99 in existence. If you manage to stumble upon one, then thank your lucky stars, as earlier this year someone paid almost $4,000 for one. Just let that sink in.

“Fall temps could be all over the place.” –Weather Channel

Adidas’ new Go-To Adapt Jacket is designed to be worn when the weather can not make up its mind. The Go-To Adapt Jacket has a polyester top portion of the chest, shoulders and back which allows for better range of motion and body heat release. The bottom portion is made of fleece to help keep your core warm during the cooler morning tee times. Available for both men and women, this jacket has telescoping sleeves, allowing for the sleeves to be rolled up without stretching them out. The sleeves also feature an articulated elbow region, allowing for full range of motion.

Christine Cowan, global director of apparel, Adidas Golf says, “Golfers are used to having apparel that works for the two temperature extremes. But there are days when you need to be able to transition, for example, from a cooler morning to a warmer afternoon. That’s why we created the Go-To Adapt Jacket, to be the ideal mid-weight option that provides optimal stretch where you need it as well as enhanced breathability. It’s that reliable and perfect piece that can take you through your day, on course and off.”

Designed with the golf swing in mind, some of the key features include

  • Quarter Zip (men’s)
  • Full Zip (women’s)
  • Internal headphone pockets
  • Front-zip pockets
  • Telescope cuff (women’s features thumbholes)
  • Articulated elbows for freedom of movement
