Tiger Woods showed the world how to do his famed club twirl

Published

on

…and Justin Thomas too (sorry, Justin, you wouldn’t fit in the headline and Tiger is the club-twirling GOAT. I’m sure you understand).

Anyway: The story, well, it’s a short one. Ahmad Rashad, famed sportscaster, reporter, former football player, and longtime Woods friend, posted the video below to Instagram, presumably from Medalist Golf Club. Dude has an Emmy, and he called on the full force of his reporting chops to get the inside scoop on TW’s legendary twirl.

The key folks? The right thumb!

Being the great reporter that he is, Rashad was not content to rely on a single source for his club-twirl tutorial. Enter Justin Thomas, who goes about his Tour Saucery in a different manner. And to be fair, Rashad asked Thomas for his “spinning” tip first.

SPINNING!!

    If you need a lesson in how to twirl, then you shouldn’t be twirling.

    Fun post but I’m pretty sure the Justin Thomas video violates GolfWRX policies. If A member had posted that video in the forums it would’ve been taken down.

    I say this from personal experience when I posted the video of the remote controlled car driving on a green.

The 7 best #GolfWRX photos on Instagram today

Published

on

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

The folks at Dormie Workshop continue to outdo themselves. It’s ubearable.

The Peoples Clubs with a sick set of NCW blades they just built.

Heckuva an action by one of Jimmy Hutchings’ young pupils.

Kraken Golf is working on a deathly cool project.

Michael Martinez with a savage mock-up of some Ryder Cup Jordans

About right…

We think so too, Kevin.

If you’re on Instagram, remember to hashtag your photos #GolfWRX. And if you’re not on Instagram, well, don’t.

Check out these limited-edition Ryder Cup Adidas Tour360 shoes

Published

on

Here are GolfWRX, we love our Ryder Cup swag. Gianni brought you news of the U.S. squad’s apparel and some goodies from Puma last week. Today, we have more Ryder Cup-related gear news for fans of golf’s most storied team competition: Adidas is launching a limited edition Tour360 to commemorate the showdown at Le Golf National.

Available Sept. 24, the shoes draw their inspiration from the famed Ryder Cup trophy. The 10-cleated TPU outsole is designed to look like the wood grain finish at the trophy’s base, and the TPU top plate is shiny and gold like the trophy itself.

While the exterior of the shoe is the same whether your support the United States or Europe, the fortunate souls who snag a pair of the limited-edition shoes will be able to choose their preferred sockliner. One features the American flag and the final scores from every Ryder Cup since 1979, the other, the European flag.

“We know how much the Ryder Cup means to fans all over the world,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “It’s the most competitive event in golf, and brings out a level of emotion that you don’t normally see in the sport. Possession of the Ryder Cup trophy is what both of these teams and fans are after, so we looked to it for inspiration.”

The shoes (MSRP $220) will come with a limited-edition shoe bag and will only available online at adidas.com.

Rope hat fans, rejoice: Titleist’s Tour Rope Flat Bill is here

Published

on

The rope hat is having something of a moment, isn’t it? As the mesh trucker fades to the periphery and the outer recesses of hipsterdom where it belongs, the good old-fashioned cotton rope snapback is stepping up to fill the void in vintage-inspired headwear.

Titleist is getting into the rope hat game with its Tour Rope Flat Bill, worn perhaps most prominently by Cameron Smith recently, but seen adorning the heads of Adam Scott, Jason Kokrak, and Rafa Cabrera Bello.

Check ’em out.

The Tour Rope Flat Bill is available on Titleist’s website for $30 now in black/white, navy/white, and white/hunter green colorways.
