    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!

    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.

    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… 😮

  14. 1488 is coming

    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??

“Rickie’s style has evolved over the years, starting various fashionable trends in on course wear by blending influences from streetwear and modern fashion.

WRX Spotted: Mizuno MP-20 irons, T20 wedge on USGA Conforming list



Thanks to WRX Member mrmikeac, we have some photos that confirm the new Mizuno line will, in fact, be the MP20, along with a new T-Series wedge: the T20.

We don’t have details from Mizuno yet beyond the pictures from the USGA’s site, but there appear to be four different models of irons including an SEL (something, something, lefty?) set which is good news for you southpaws.

There has been lots of discussion so far in the forums, along with a speculation piece written by or own Ryan Barath (One Post Many Questions – New Mizuno Speculation).

The models are

MP20 (Blade) 

MP20 MMC (Multi-Material Cavity)


Speculated to be Hot Metal Blade thanks to the Chromoloy on the hosel, there are two versions on the USGA list, which could also mean a blended set with solid forged irons in the shorter clubs.


T20 wedge

We’re going to have to wait until confirmation from Mizuno to get all the details but join in the discussion in the GolfWRX forums.

Forum Thread of the Day: “New set of irons on a budget of $500-$700?”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from GarhawlR who is on the hunt for a new set of irons and is looking for suggestions on how to get the best bang for his buck with a budget of between $500 and $700. Our members disclose their advice for how to go about filling your bag if you’re on a budget.

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.

  • rgk5: “Pre-owned Srixon 585 or Wilson Staff W6 will fit the budget. Maltby irons are okay but will have virtually no resale value down the road.”
  • PushDrawFlush: “$500-700 is plenty to find new-to-me forged irons. I’d keep an eye out for some Srixon z745/765 if you want something similar to your MP25s but a little chunkier/more forgiving.”
  • T.B: “Sub 70 and hogans. Maltby makes great clubs. You have a lot of options at that price range. Take your time, and you’ll find something you really want.”
  • revenant: “You should be able to do this without much trouble. My MP-4s (3-PW) were $280 from global golf with minimal face wear (good grooves and no rust/wear spots).”
