SPOTTED: TaylorMade “GAPR” 2-iron

Published

on

We recently spotted a photo of a TaylorMade “GAPR” driving iron in our GolfWRX Forums, and some more photos from around the Internet. One of the photos in our Forum Thread has emojis and text added to the photo, implying that @haotong66 — which is HaoTong Li’s Instagram handle — originally posted the photo. Check out the photo from GolfWRX Member cvhookem63 for yourself…

Gavinkgreen7 — an Asian/Eurpoean Tour pro — also posted the photo below on Instagram that has an even clearer image of the TaylorMade “GAPR” iron.

In addition to the “GAPR” text on the back of the club, which one would have to assume means “gapper” for yardage gapping, it also appears to say “LO.” LO would certainly imply a lower ball flight, right? Either way, the club pictured above has what appears to be an adjustable weight in the rear cavity of the club head, possibly to adjust weight and/or launch angle.

Curious timing right before the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie for a photo of a driving iron to pop up in our forums, don’t you think? Could this possibly be a new prototype for Open Championship participants to use off the tee for more control in the wind… possibly with a LO-wer trajectory?

Additionally, TaylorMade Tour Rep Chris Trott posted a photo on his personal Instagram with what looks to be a low-lofted iron that has an adjustable hosel — the two “GAPR” irons pictured above do not appear to have an adjustable hosel. Is this the same “GAPR” iron? It’s hard to tell when covered by unicorns and skulls, but it does have a similar look aside from the hosels. The iron Trott posted has 17 degrees of loft on it (you can see just below the “shush” face emoji).

You can see below that the skull emoji does not cover the “lower” text, and a clearly adjustable hosel (pictured in the red circle below).

It’s all speculation at this point, since we haven’t heard anything official from TaylorMade. For now, check out more photos and discussion in the forum thread.

    This is probably an 18* 2 iron to fit the “gap” between the 17* UDI and the 19* P790 3 iron. You know, because every pro (pro-wannabe?) has so many 230+ shots to hit.

    Is it another TM fake-forged hollow body iron filled with jello-elastomer and a tungsten slug in the toe… making it the ultimate SGI driving iron in the world? 😮

      you’re probably such a good player….. just cause you cant hit them doesn’t mean they aren’t a good product.

    So it’s like any other adjustable driving iron then? Also sounds like GDPR which makes me lol.

Photos of Sergio Garcia’s Ryder Cup-themed Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter

Published

on

Sergio Garcia, who was given a controversial captain’s pick to play in the 2018 Ryder Cup next week in France, is playing in the Portugal Masters this week using a new, custom Odyssey Toulon Atlanta putter with European team colors. The putter has Euro-themed yellow, blue and white paint fills on the sole and back of the head, and stars that represent the European flag on the side.

Using the putter, Sergio’s off to a hot start at the Portugal Masters, played at Victoria Clube de Golfe, shooting a round of 5-under to put him at T6. He discusses the custom Toulon putter here:

Familiar with the style of putter, Sergio used a Odyssey Toulon Atlanta model to win on the European Tour last year, and has used several different Toulon models throughout 2018. The Atlanta model in particular is characterized by Odyssey as a mid-sized mallet that’s “fully milled with a multi-material aluminum sole plate and short-slant hosel.” It also has Toulon’s familiar diamond face milling.

To learn more about diamond face milling and Sean Toulon himself, check out our recent TG2 podcast with him below.

Yesterday, we took a look at 10 of the best historical Ryder Cup-themed apparel and memorabilia finds. Now it’s time to focus solely on this year’s event and see what goodies you can get your hands on before the action gets underway from Le Golf National. Here are ten 2018 Ryder Cup products available that we think you’ll like.

The 2018 Ryder Cup Bushnell Tour V4 Jolt Rangefinder

Earlier this month we found out that Bushnell rangefinders are the preferred choice of GolfWRX members. Well, now you can get your hands on this Ryder Cup-themed Bushnell Tour V4 Jolt Rangefinder. Although it doesn’t say so, the Rangefinder does look quite European in its colors. You can take a closer look at it here.

2018 Ryder Cup Set of Two 18.5 oz All-Purpose Wine Glasses

 

It’s only right to showcase these Ryder Cup-themed wine glasses, as, after all, we are in France. Keep the beer in the fridge and open up a nice bottle of Bordeaux and chill out and enjoy the three days of drama unfold from Le Golf National. Available here.

The 2018 Ryder Cup FootJoy SciFlex Golf Glove

One of the simplest and cheapest ways to grab a 2018 Ryder Cup souvenir that you should get a lot of use out of, this FootJoy Golf Glove features the official 2018 Ryder Cup logo and is available to purchase here.

The 2018 Ryder Cup USA Fanwear Pique Polo – Navy

We covered just what the U.S. team will be wearing over the three days of action at Le Golf National here. The feedback on the outfits was a little mixed, however, if like me you appreciated the minimalist style of the matchday shirts then this pique polo shirt will interest you. Another plus about this classy polo is that it’s almost half the price of the official match polos, check it out in more detail here.

The 2018 Ryder Cup Nike Energy Pack T-Shirt

As with the European Headcovers, this Team USA leather Driver cover is beautiful, with impressive detail featuring the USA Ryder Cup logo and a ’12 Strong’ detail at the back of the head cover. Take a look at it here.

The 2018 Ryder Cup Leatherette Tote Bag

A 2018 French Tricolour Ryder Cup bag featuring the official tournament crest and wording. A cool way to celebrate the first Ryder Cup ever to be held in France. Available here.
