    I love the one randomly shafted graphite wedge shaft

    Arm Locks now have the big bend shaft that adds the loft. That way production at Bettinardi is standard 3*.
    Also that Atmos is a “Tour Spec” 6s. Tour Spec is essentially X for us mortals. But since there isn’t a standard on flexes what Fuji says is S could be X for another brand or even line.
    I am interested on when he switched from the Steel Fibers. Believe he played 95’s so little bump in weight.

    True Temper in his Irons? Did he had the Steelfiber in the irons in the year(s) before?

      He just switched to the TT 105’s, he likes a soft flex in his irons. Some good looks of the shaft bands here. Still using the Aerofiber shaft in short clubs. Interesting bag and swing, Kuch is a throwback.

    Interesting that he uses X flex in driver but S300s in his irons

      It says S flex in the driver, can you read?

      It is odd, but it looks like it is only X flex in his 3-wood and hybrids.

    Those new Cleveland wedges are starting in show up in more PGA bags. Need to check them out.

      The RTX-3’s were a miss in my opinion the size and shape were large and awkward looking didn’t care for them much, but these RTX-4’s are a nice size and shape. Just beautiful and they perform!

    70 degrees of loft on his putter, eh? That’s pretty sweet.

    20* Hybrid to a 5 iron?

      Would love to know the actual loft progression here. He’s definitely bent some things to make it flow for him. Likely 62 57 52 47 maybe? Then some bending at the top too to close that hybrid to 5 iron gap.

      No. That’s the lie angle…loft is actually 3 deg.

      I own that Anser 20. It’s short. That’s just a 4-iron these days… plays like a 22.

WRX Spotted at U.S. Open: Justin playing just Rosey with new TPT

Published

on

We are a little more than halfway through the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and so far the course is giving and taking as much as you would expect from a perfect setup by the USGA.

Taking the lead on Thursday and continuing to lurk into the weekend is Justin Rose. Since we have been paying close attention to his Honma golf bag all year, we noticed a shaft change in his Tour World driver.

We reached out to TPT to see if we could get an update on what Rose has put in play for what is often referred to as one of the toughest driving weeks of the year. Here’s the inside info

“Justin has put into play a TPT Golf 14 MKP-LT-SW shaft in his Honma driver. This shaft is a full 10 CPM ( Cycles per Minute ) stiffer than the 15 LKP-LT-SW shaft that he put in play at The Memorial after testing it that week. It’s also different in that it has a Mid Kick Point (MKP), where as the 15 LKP-LT-SW has a Low-Kick-Point (LKP) design.”

From a technical and fitting perspective (generally speaking) a lower kick point shaft will hit the ball higher with more spin compared to a mid or high kick point shaft if all other factors are equal. We don’t have access to his driver numbers but with the U.S. Open being played on what can always end up as a windy venue the theory would be that this change to the MKP is to help keep ball flight lower and more controlled — which will also be a benefit next month at the Open Championship.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting a mention.

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.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”
