    Looks like he just might pick up a hat sponsor soon. He gets paid for putting a Cally driver in his bag.

    Get the yardage and hit it . Great guy but really needs to speed it up just a tad. The talk between himself and his caddie is priceless .

    Congrats on the win Kevin, one of the nice guys on Tour. But for Gods sake get an alarm on your watch and speed up, it is tiring to see you on the clock every Tournament.

    Love seeing the sponsor-less mixed bag guys winning. It is very surprising that one of the top Korean male golfers doesn’t have more sponsors. Definitely seems like a good guy too. Love the banter with his caddy.

      Me too. The banter is funny. Every amateur golfer can relate with it.

    Is it just me or is his GBB Epic driver actually smaller than the retail version?

      There was a 440cc version of the Epic that was available to the pros but never put out in retail. Phil used it for a while last year as did Alex Noren. I’m sure there were others.

      Most of the pros use clubs that are different to retail. I’ve used some tour issue Taylor gear in the past that was unrecognisable besides the logos paint job etc.

    Seems like a really good guy, very good player. Congrats!

    When did Kevin Na stop playing his 917 Driver & switch to Callaway Epic ?

      That’s why he won, obviously. And his 3 wood change

      Switched right before the AT&T. Got it done at Aloha Golf in Vegas. I was in the shop watching him get fit for it on Trackman and he was moving it compared to his 917.

    54* and 60*, nothing between the 54 and PW. I’ve noticed this with a few pros, any thoughts?

    • Fingers

      Jul 9, 2018 at 12:25 am

      And i thought i was the only weirdo that had just a 54 and 60. For me it works perfectly.
      Full swing yardages are PW=125, 54*=110 and 60*=85.
      50-60 yards (which i rarely leave myself) is around 1/2 54* or 3/4 60*
      30-40 yards is around 1/2 60*
      And if i want to get real technical with distance ill hit them up or down
      Since im good at random boneheaded moves at times i try to K.I.S.S.

      For those who feel they need a bit more length and better gapping in the longer clubs, this is what they’ll do, and compensate on the short end with working harder to knock down shots and gripping down, etc.

    More great face shots …way to go

WRX Spotlight: Stitch headcovers

Published

on

Product: Stitch headcovers

Pitch: From Stitch: “Your game should match your style. At Stitch, we aim to merchandise our line of products so you can easily put together items that not only match your bag and what is it in it, but also match your style and personality. We want to make it easy for you to have a unique and color-coordinated golf bag. We have designed unique products that have defined color schemes so that choosing which items to put in your bag becomes easier. We aim to provide you with various looks, mixing and matching our head covers to give you confidence that the purchase you make for your bag will take you to the course in style. Let us help you dress your game.”

Our Take On Stitch Headcovers

Stitch is a relatively new company – founded in 2012. The company initially only created premium headcovers but has grown into so much more, with all sorts of golfing accessories now on offer on their site StitchGolf.com. Their bags, in particular, are now some of the most popular amongst golfers, with the quality and uniqueness provided leading multiple Tour players to sport them in tournament play.

That sign of quality in the bags bodes well for what the company was founded on – their headcovers. Stitch provides both leather and knit headcovers in a variety of designs that do as good a job as any in covering the needs of all golfers.

Stitch describes the companies Monte Carlo headcover as being their “classic, timeless design”, and for those looking for that vintage style to add to their set up then they can’t go wrong with this headcover. A mainstay in the likes of multiple tour winner Paul Casey’s bag, the Monte Carlo headcover, as with all of the companies leather covers, is hand-crafted from 100% leather and is both water and stain resistant. The cover comes in four color codes: Black, White, Navy and Red, and at $68 is the most affordable of all their leather headcovers.

Other options in the leather department range from their intricately designed Camo cover which comes in a multiple color design, as well as Stitch’s tribute to “The King”, through their Arnold Palmer headcover.

The AP cover comes in a minimalist black with white stripes for a classic feel, but it also comes in a white color code decorated with red, white and yellow stripes which, for myself at least, looks even more alluring. Part of an exclusive collection, the only issue with the AP cover is that only those located in the U.S. are currently eligible to get their hands on one. But for those in the states, the company is now offering a set of three AP leather covers for $128 instead of $298 should you use the code APLEATHERS on their site.

From their Tour Racer, USA, Shamrock and Bonesman editions, Stitch provides a great choice when it comes to their leather covers, and as previously mentioned, all are hand-crafted from 100% leather, water and stain resistant and will assure an excellent fit on your clubs.

Stitch also provides knit headcovers which contain not only excellent designs but also the same quality which has gone into their leather covers. All of the companies knit covers are made from Techno Wool, which is 100% acrylic and designed in order for your clubs to stay entirely dry. Another feature of the knit covers from Stitch is their smart fit design which ensures all of the covers retain their shape over a long period, as well as providing for a cover that will reliably stay on your club.

The knit covers from Stitch cost $68 ($72 for the limited AP cover), and there are currently seven different designs available to choose from over at StitchGolf.com. The leather covers are, unsurprisingly, a little pricier, but still very affordable, ranging from $68-$98. The covers deliver in both style and performance, and for a relatively new company, it speaks volumes that the likes of Jim Furyk, Paul Casey, Bryson DeChambeau and many more tour pros are now sporting the company’s creations.

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has announced Jason Kokrak as the latest player to join the companies Tour staff, and the Canadian will play the companies custom Tour Department DASS (Double-Aged Stainless Steel) BB8 Triplane putter.

Kokrak began using the Tour Department DASS BB8 Triplane putter which features Bettinardi’s  F.I.T. Face Milling at the Honda Classic back in February. Since then, the 34-year-old has risen over 40 places in the Official World Golf Ranking up to 65th, and he has also leapt 30 spots in this season’s strokes gained: putting category in the same period.

Speaking on the new partnership, Kokrak praised the “quality, touch, and feel of the putter” from Bettinardi.

“Since switching to a Bettinardi putter earlier this year, I have been so impressed with the quality, touch, and feel of the putter. Bettinardi has the ability to craft anything I want from a solid block of metal, all milled in the USA. This was a big confidence boost to my putting and I look forward to a great partnership.”

Speaking on the addition of Kokrak to the companies tour staff, Robert Bettinardi, President and Founder of Bettinardi Golf stated

“Since switching to a Bettinardi putter earlier this year, I have been so impressed with the quality, touch, and feel of the putter. Bettinardi has the ability to craft anything I want from a solid block of metal, all milled in the USA. This was a big confidence boost to my putting and I look forward to a great partnership.”

Kokrak will next tee it up at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Course next month after finishing T23 at last week’s PGA Championship.
