    Pxg def pays their players, not a whole lot though. There drivers and woods are not great, but there irons are very good clubs. What they charge us up to them and can’t knock A company for great marketing and sales. Pretty much any Titleist and Tm club iron etc these days are 200-249 pr club with custom shafts. I love Howell, but not a whole lot of competition in this filed. If the club switch is not a fluke, he should be in the winners circle a lot more in the near future! I

    I remember watching him play at the Future Masters in Dothan, AL, and him spending many hours practicing his short game at Olympia Spa. A young kid, perhaps 10-12 in knickers, and so dedicated. So glad for him, a great kid then and a great representative of this game now. Play on Charles!

    I remember when Parsons said in an interview that he ‘doesn’t pay any of the pros to play his equipment. They come to him because the equipment is superior’. What a load S%$!t. Parsons is a total jerk – ask anyone who knows him.

      Exactly!! I hate when people still try to argue that PXG doesn’t pay their players. If PXG didn’t pay them why would they wear their hats??

    Chucky rocking a 7 wood? 21* fairway wood is a 7, no?

    • Point misser

      Nov 19, 2018 at 3:22 pm

      Probably opened down to 19* An absolute rocket no doubt

      Let’s call it a 5 wood or utility wood…7 woods are for women

    He started to play a lot better when he stopped playing the overpriced & overhyped PXG’s. WTG Charles III. You deserved the win.

    I am happy for Chucky 3 Stix!! He has been around for a long time and its great to see him finally back in the winners circle. Once he got rid of that PXG (Parsons Xtreme Garbage) his game turned around, imagine that!! Good for you Chuck!

    You left out the Orange whip. Does he also have a round grip on his putter?

    Titleist baby – switching did him well. The clubs of a player.

    Awesome putter! Throw out the rest. But, hey, at least he realized PXG was junk.

    Funky setup. MB in 4 iron and then AP2 to CB. One would have suspected the other way round, MB in short irons, AP2 in mid and CB in long irons. Goes to show, go with what works.

        TMB is MB Donny Dorko. We all read Titleist. Go get a Slushee to cwool down. Did I mean cool? I must be a moron but more on this later…..

      I would think that it would be more like the CBs in the mid and AP2s in the long irons, since the AP2s are more forgiving. As to what you mentioned, the CBs in the long irons, right?

    Chucky switches to Titleist and now 33% of his wins come with the big T. He drove that driver so straight and flushed his irons. Solid striker who hit 88% of his greens!

    He said he loved the feel of his new clubs in the bag. Based off the hollow of the PXG’s, who could blame him? Overpriced gimmicks that he was stuck with last few years.

    Chucky 3 sticks, we love you man!

    Yes, cheers to you CH, well done! Hits the ball wicked fah for a skinny guy like me!

    The PX LZ’s are bitchin’ shafts with the V1. Find the right flex and the spin and trajectory are great for most amateurs. A deep face 10.5 low spin driver with the V1 is also a good combo. Good for him.

    Wicked weapons of golf destruction in Chuck’s WITB arsenal of winning clubs… 😮

    Congrats CH3! So nice to see him win again. Hard work pays off!

    Three Sticks is back!! I like those cb’s in the short irons. Reminds me of my Miura cb 202. See ya at Augusta!

    Love seeing this. He just got this bag too. I believe I saw him pulling plastic off his wedges the first day. PXG who? Is that the seriously over priced gear that has literally taken the worlds best off the map?
    Run while you can guys… run!

      It must be the clubs! Immediate switch and he wins in 11 years. Imagine if you change clubs before every single tournament. You’ll probably win every single one!

      Would have expected the “worlds best” to have more that 2 PGA wins entering the week??

Brooks Koepka with Mizuno JPX 919 irons, TaylorMade M5 driver in the bag at Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship

Published

on

Brooks-Koepka-Mizuno-JPX919

Brooks Koepka is in action this week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship equipped with a new driver and set of irons.

Golf.com’s Jonathan Wall broke the news, via Twitter, that Kopeka has TaylorMade’s new M5 Driver in his bag this week, as well as Mizuno’s JPX 919 Tour Irons.

The three-time major champ used TaylorMade’s M3 460 Driver and Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons throughout 2018, and it appears as if Koepka is happy to make the transition to both manufacturers latest additions of those series of clubs right from the get-go in 2019.

Brooks-Koepka-Mizuno-JPX-919

Koepka is currently T13 after two rounds of play at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and sits five shots off the lead.

Titleist 718 AP2 Black and AP3 Black released in limited quantities

Published

on

FEATURED-Titleist-AP-3-Black-Titleist-AP-2-Black-400

Titleist has unveiled new 718 AP2 Black and 718 AP3 Black irons in limited black finish that will be available to purchase from March 1.

Previously only available in a traditional chrome finish, the new Titleist 718 AP2 Black and Titleist 718 AP3 Black irons are finished with a sleek, high polish black PVD coating. The irons feature True Temper AMT Onyx shafts stock. The shafts’ powder coat matte black finish aims to minimize glare (in addition to looking cool). An all-black Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip is standard as well.

FEATURED-Titleist-AP-3-Black-Titleist-AP-2-Black-400

Speaking on the move to release the irons in black, Josh Talge, Vice President, Golf Club Marketing said

“One request we heard from both tour players and amateurs, particularly those who have gravitated toward our Jet Black Vokey SM7 wedges, was if they could have these same irons in a darker finish. Our team spent a lot of time making sure the aesthetics were done just right. It’s a look that you just have to see.”

A quick refresher on the two models, below.

Titleist-AP-3-Black-Titleist-AP-2-Black-49

Titleist 718 AP3 Black

The 718 AP3 iron is a players distance iron which features a hollow-blade design with high-speed face technology. According to Titleist, the company merged the technology found in their AP1 and AP2 irons to create the AP3, which the company are calling their longest and fastest players iron ever.

Commenting on the AP3, Talge stated

“AP3 truly represents the best of both worlds. We’re giving you the distance and forgiveness of a game improvement iron packed into the look and feel of a player’s iron.”

The set is made up of 4-iron through 48-degree wedge. The AP3 Black irons, which are available for right-handers only, are available to purchase from March 1 and will cost $187.50 per club or $1,499/set of 8.

Titleist 718 AP2 Black

The 718 AP2 iron features a co-forged cavity back design which aims to provide consistent distance and forgiveness, while also delivering excellent feel to all golfers.

Speaking concerning the AP2 iron, Talge had this to say

“AP2 is the most popular tour iron globally because it combines the look and feel tour players demand with the precise distance control they need to consistently hit their target, shot after shot. For everyone else, it’s the tour iron within reach, because it is so forgiving.”

The set is made up of 4-iron through 50-degree wedge. Also available for right-handers only, the irons are available to purchase from March 1 and will cost $187.50 per club or $1,499/set of 8 as well.

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Fourteen Golf’s 2019 TC920 irons. Our guys were on-hand this week to snap some photos of the new additions from Fourteen Golf, and the look of the clubs made by the Japanese manufacturer has many of our members besotted.

For a lot more photos and discussion, make sure to check out the entire thread here.

Here are what some of our members are saying about Fourteen Golf’s TC920 irons.

  • IHFN: “Look like a combo of the TC-888 and the FH900, but with the offset of the FH1000. Me likey.”
  • MitchellGolfing: “Really like the look of these. Fourteen puts out some serious irons.”
  • Equipto: “Haven’t ever really considered Fourteen as an option, but after seeing these I might have to rethink that, great looking sticks.”
  • andrieddie: “At first, I was going to say the FH 900 looks so much better, but after a few takes….this looks like money too. Hope more and more of these are showing up in the bags of big tour players.”
