Justin Thomas used Rickie Fowler’s backup putter on Friday at the Wells Fargo

Published

on

After putting poorly en route to a Thursday 73 at Quail Hollow Club for the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship, Justin Thomas switched to Rickie Fowler’s backup Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter for the second round, according to multiple reports.

Thomas went from minus-0.783 strokes gained putting during the first round, to plus 0.708 SGP in the second round (2-under 69) with 29 putts. He was previously putting with a Futura X5 that he’d been using since his 2017 PGA Championship victory at the same venue.

Below is a look at Rickie Fowler’s current gamer.

According to the Golf Channel, Fowler had this to say about Thomas using his backup: “If he wants to keep using it, [he can] keep using it, but he’s stuck with having my name on the back of it.”

      Yes, it’s a plain Cameron Anser2 shape with a tri-sole. No face inserts, no weird milling, no weird alignment. Just plain. Of course Cameron will not sell this to the retail customer.

PXG introduces high-MOI, adjustable Operator putter

Published

on

Joining the Drone and Gunboat on the high-MOI mallet-style putter end of the spectrum, PXG is launching its highest MOI putter to date: the Operator.

With a maximum head mass of 400 grams, depending on weight adjustments, the Operator features a soft billet-milled 304 stainless steel face and a body made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum.

PXG made the Operator for those seeking advanced customization and maximum forgiveness. Multiple sole weights, available in increments of 2.5g, 5g, 10g, 15g and 20g, can be used to adjust the overall head mass.

Regarding the name: “Operator” is the specific term for Delta’s operational personnel, although in recent years it has become a term for almost all U.S. military special forces.

The putter is available in three models.

Operator

The double-bend hosel style creates a full shaft of offset with a face-balanced hang angle. Built for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Operator H

The hosel neck is heel-shafted with a half shaft of offset and mid toe-down hang angle. Built for players with more face rotation in their stroke.

Operator P

The plumber’s neck shaft creates a full shaft of offset with a slightly toe-down hang angle. Built for players with a moderate amount of face rotation in their stroke.

All Operator models feature PXG’s proprietary TPE honeycomb sole insert and a TPE insert behind the face to dampen vibrations and enhance feel.

$450 retail.
