Spotted: New Bettinardi “Hexperimental prototype” putters

Published

on

We’ve recently spotted new Bettinardi “Hexperimental prototype” putters from its Tour Department. We’ve seen “Hexperimental” putters before from Bettinardi; the name being a play on the company’s hexagon-shaped, honeycomb-milled faces.

This new batch of Hexperimental putters showcases different models, face millings and color schemes, in both mallet and blade-style (armlock) heads.

As pointed out by a GolfWRX member in the thread: “It’s October, that means the retail ’19 line should be shipping out to distributors soon.” We’ll be on the look out for confirmation and information if that’s indeed the case.

For now, check out a sample of the photos of the new Hexperimental prototype putters below, or click here to see all of the photos and discussion.

    Gearheads must have a limited edition “prototype” to pretend they are on the OEM select list of test golfers…. so shrewd… so pathetic…

Forum Thread of the Day: “Ball in the thick rough – what club to use?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who asks fellow members what their preferred choice of club is when their ball is in thick rough. A variety of irons and hybrids are mentioned by our members who delve into the discussion of course management.

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.

  • RainShadow: “For me, that sot would be a 7 iron, open the face a little and play a runner up to the front of the green. Open face will help a bit with getting stuck in the grass.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “Club choice depends on whether you’re willing to accept a bogey or whether you insist on making double.”
  • ChipNRun: “I would try a hinge and hold action. Take a half swing with plenty of hinge action and punch down on the ball with limited follow-through. Use the big muscles of the shoulders – you don’t want to hurt yourself trying to muscle it. Probably choose something between a PW and a 7i. You’ll need to hold firmly with L hand, so the grass doesn’t wrap around the hosel and deloft the club face.”
  • kcd38: “If it is 200 plus from the green and a decent lie, hybrid. If it is less than 200 from the green and sunk down a little, I usually go with my 8 iron and play the face slightly open knowing the grass will grab the hosel and shut the face. Definitely need some speed to get out of the thick stuff.”
