Special-edition 2018 PGA Championship Nike Golf shoes

Published

on

Spotted on the course during practice rounds this week, Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy have been wearing PGA Championship special-edition Lunar Command 2 shoes with hits of Blue Camo on the sole and the Swoosh.

While it hasn’t been confirmed whether those particular shoes will be available, it does appear Nike Golf is releasing a special-edition Tour-Premiere golf shoe that has the same Blue Camo accents, although in an all-white shoe in a different style.

The shoes reportedly go on sale August 8 for $200.

What do you think about the Bellerive/PGA Championship shoes from Nike?

    Why do all Nike shoes buckle in the toe section instead of sitting and moving better like other brands (see the black shoe for reference). Almost like they give too much toe space. Admittedly I have narrower feet but they feel really awkward when I’ve tried them on.

      Too much toe space? There’s nearly no such thing in golf shoes. Most are toe huggers, except for Sketchers and True Linkswear.

      Jim, it just means you shouldn’t wear Nike. Simples. Why try? Nike makes ugly stuff anyway

    Looks like the white shoes have a wrap-around ‘kiltie’ covering the laces. The black shoes have exposed laces. What gives?!!

    I think those might be Nike Lunar Command 2 not Lunar Control 4, I could be wrong.

What GolfWRXers are saying about stronger players using a 7-wood

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the strategy behind playing a 7-wood. WRXer ‘Sabzor’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“Lately I’ve been interested in possibly swapping the hybrid for a 7-wood and wanted to see if there were any stronger players who did the same? Often you hear of it going too high, but I feel that even the 4w is pretty optimal for me.

 My thought process is mainly around having 2 versatile distance woods starting around 250yds down – I figure off the tee if I need more than 250 I’m hitting driver anyway. Just curious with some of the pros we’ve seen lately doing the same thing.”

And our members have been having their say on the subject in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • demeeksDC: “Big fan of the 7-wood. Main thing is to get the right shaft — stiff enough — as they often come with softer shafts. Easy to hit and easy to stop. I have landed many 7-woods on greens that stopped dead.”
  • uglande: “I’ve got a TS2 7 wood with a Ventus Blue 7x shaft, and it’s phenomenal. Nice height but no ballooning. Shaft is important, but so is the clubhead. Brands that are more game-improvement focused have 7-woods with COG that are too low, and you can get high spinny flights. But the Titleist 7-woods (esp. TS2) have not been a problem for me. And obviously, some of the TaylorMade guys are doing well with the SIM 7-wood.”
  • VNutz: “I’ve played the 7w on and off for quite some time, SS is probably around 110 nowadays so a bit behind you. For me, it plays like a 5w and was better than a hybrid for my game as those tend to hook on me. I’ve since taken it out of the bag in favor of the modern more hittable driving irons, but I wouldn’t hesitate to put it back in the bag.”
  • L29: “I love the 4w, 7w combo. Still have the Cally xr16 in both and can’t get them out of the bag. My only issue with the 7w is when there is a significant amount of headwind. I do have a little bit of difficulty flighting it down. This problem, however, is nowhere near bad enough to have me thinking of any kind of change. That 7w lands like a raindrop on the green.”
  • Chazb: “The Callaway heaven wood has been my go-to club for over a year, and it’s been a Scoring difference. I even use it to tee off at times as it has very good distance and direction.The people I play with call it my magic club because it always puts me in a good place on the course.”

Member Baroo – Titleist T100s “Blackout” irons

The theme for today is “reduced glare” and you’re certainly going to get that with this set of Titleist T100s irons. Going from 4-iron through 48 degree, the only thing more stealth than these would be a camo set.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: T100s Blackout

Member Techgolfer61 – Raw Miura CB1008 irons

A little rust means no glare and a very unique look. Considering the price of these Miura’s, don’t expect them to last long on the open market.

Member LeftyCabe – Ping G400 LST

I’m going to call this the LLST (Lefty Low Spin Technology). This driver head is in fantastic shape and ready for a shaft. Did I also mention it’s going for one heck of a price?
