    Guy has won 3 times and earned his way onto the Ryder Cup team and this is the BEST What’s in the Bag you can do? This site is just getting plain lazy with this stuff…

    How does the same shaft get tipped 1 inch more and become 2 inches longer?

    These aren’t specs. Is this a joke?

      This article has inspired me to golf and also some minor deficiencies. See more at golf to be more complete

    Are his wedges the same length as the rest of his irons? I don’t recall reading one way or the other.

    BAD has 3 wins, Fed Ex Cup Leader and 9 top 10s.

      Majors mean more than top 10s and analytics. Credit to him going back to back though

    Player of the tear?

      Koepka won 2 majors

    • Doober

      Get out of here if you genuinely think DeChambeau should get the player of the year over Koepka

      • ~j~

        Sep 4, 2018 at 12:37 pm

        2 majors and a 2nd place finish for Keopka. 6 top-10’s.

        3 wins and 9 Top-10 finishes for Bryson.

        Majors should not be the de-facto independant factors into winning the PoY. And even if, the US Open this year is a damned wash in my book. I’ve never seen players penalized so much for hitting quality shots into the greens. Could have easily been someone else’s tournament to win than Brooks all based on how lucky one could get at holding the greens. ‘Someone’ had to win.

        And at the PGA Championship he had ample oppertunities to put away the field over the weekend yet missed more short putts than I can care to remember. An unspectacular win that was overshadowed on Sunday by the better play of others.

        Does Bryson deserve PoY? He’s certainly should be part of the conversation. Should Brooks win PoY defacto based on play of 2 tournaments only? Absolutely NOT.

        If he wins the FedEx Cup, slam dunk for BAD.

      I’m a big fan of BD, but it’s hard to imagine that even winning the FedEx Cup tops two majors.

Our Johnny Wunder paid a visit to Ping HQ in Phoenix, and in addition to getting to step inside to company’s legendary gold putter vault, The Gear Dive host got an exclusive in-hand look at Ping’s new prototype Blueprint irons.

While we can’t provide any additional details at present, we do have these photos of a 6-iron for your viewing pleasure.

Bargain Challenge: Putting together a set of clubs for $500

Published

on

You have a golf trip planned in two weeks. One day after work, you head to your car to hit the range and get some grinding in for the trip. As you walk to your car you notice your car has been broken into and your clubs are gone. Not good. You need new clubs for the trip but aren’t in a position to shell out the $2,000-$3,000 for a brand new set. What are your options? I recommend hitting the used market.

Every year, thousands of used golf clubs go on the market. Some of the clubs had a rough life and some have barely been hit. As an exercise to see what you can get for your dollar, I browsed one of the web’s largest used golf equipment sites (3balls.com) with a budget of $500 for a full set of clubs in my specs. What I found was really interesting.

Rules: 14 clubs for under $500 shipped. As close to my specs as possible.

Driver

Since I play a low loft driver with a low launch, low spin shaft, I knew I was in for a challenge with finding a driver. Once I took a minute to search, I found this beauty of a driver. I remember hitting the Ping G10 back in the day, and it was one of the most forgiving drivers at the time. Plus, it was very close to my specs at standard length, 7.5 degrees, and a mid-launch Grafalloy shaft.

Wood

While searching for a 3-wood, I had two things in mind, I needed a X-stiff shaft, and I needed it to be heavy. After about five minutes, I found this great Titleist 913 with a heavier X-stiff shaft. Normally I play a 13-degree 3-wood, and this 3-wood would allow me to loft it down to get the desired flight. Really a solid deal for $50.

Hybrid

In an ideal world, I’d be hitting a 2-iron or a driving iron here. The problem is that driving irons can sell for $100-plus fairly easily, so that was out of budget. After searching, I found a nice 17-degree hybrid from Ping with an X-stiff shaft. The shaft is a little lighter than I would like, but it is not a bad pick up for 80 bucks.

Irons

I knew I would want to spend the majority of my money on some solid irons. After searching, with the parameters being a 3-PW set with X100 shafts, I found this great Titleist combo set. I current play a MB/CB combo from another company, so this set fits well with what I am looking for if I was to replace my current set. All of this for $200.

Wedges

Wedge shopping was hard because I needed a lob wedge with good grooves and a gap wedge that wasn’t trash. I got really lucky with the Ping lob wedge. It is in very good condition which is really what matters for the grooves since I will be using it greenside. Since it is blue dot, I can get it sent to ping to be adjusted for my specs. For the gap wedge, I picked up a heavily used 52-degree. Ideally, I would have more money for a slightly better grooved GW.

Putter

Can’t go wrong with a White Hot in my preferred length. Not much more to say.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Is it easier to hit players irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day was created by lazyjc4, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for their opinion on what they feel are some of the easiest to hit players irons on the market. Our members have mentioned a multitude of players irons, with plenty of detailed reasoning behind their choices.

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.

  • thewral: “New Level 902. Single piece forging, feel great, smallish head, low offset, distance lofts.”
  • naj959: “I went through a couple of sets of irons this year which included 765s, flyz+, and finally settled on the…..Bridgestone J15 DPF. There are some great reviews of these irons. The 765s are forgiving, but the j15s are even more so. They have a very thin top line, are workable, and are lonnnng.”
  • Casper_golf: “Take a good look at the Wilson V6, or if you are looking for something older, guys really like the V4’s that can be found as a steal.  Way underrated irons. Soft feel forgiving and long for the weaker lofts they have. No offset.”
  • Sonja Henie: “Very interested in the comment about the 745s being similar to the 545s in forgiveness.  I’ve been very tempted by the 565s but might do better with the 765s.”
