Forum Thread of the Day: GolfWRX Members love this golf bag

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Steelhead, who gave us a close look at his new Jones Trouper golf bag, and just like Steelhead, many of our members have been seriously impressed. The thread features plenty of in-hand photos of the new bags, and though many of our members have already dived in and ordered one for themselves, with Black Friday fast approaching, lots have been waiting for this week to get their hands on one.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say on the new golf bags at the link below.

  • Blink3665: “I’ve been lurking on this thread since it started.  With the Black Friday sale, I had to jump.  I grabbed a Navy bag with a few extra goodies (If I’m gonna pay for shipping I might as well grab a few other things, right?)”
  • slide13: “I’d say if you want to carry 14 clubs and don’t want a pretty tight fit, give the Trouper a try. I have the Utility, and it’s a cool bag, but I found it a super tight fit and not great with 14 clubs using midsize grips.  Maybe regular grips help.  I still like the bag, and I don’t mind using just 12 clubs or so which helps a little, but I’d still probably have found another solution if it was my main bag.”
  • Dubv23: “As soon as I pulled the trouper out of the box today I knew it was going to be my favorite bag.  It maintains a lot of the Utility styling but adds a lot of the features many wanted. The great thing is it does not make the bag that much bigger.  Its taller from the bottom of the opening to the top but not much wider and very well thought out. The material is different than past utilities, and I would assume it was to shed weight.  It has a hoofer like feel to the fabric but not so much to make it seem like it’s not a Jones bag. The opening is perfect and holds all 14 clubs perfect, the leg mechanism is smooth and much easier to release than the past, and the putter “well” is slick. “
  • mr.hicksta: “After seeing those additional pics, I’m even more excited about getting mine! Jones Golf doesn’t mess around with shipping, either. Mine looks like it’ll arrive on Monday, which is nice and quick from Oregon to Hawaii!”

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.”

Xander Schauffele using a new Odyssey Stroke Lab Tuttle putter at this week’s U.S. Open

Published

on

At this week’s U.S. Open, Xander Schauffele made the move to a new Odyssey Stroke Lab Tuttle putter as he looks to break his major duck.

The 25-year-old had been using a Stroke Lab R-Ball gamer since March but tested out the Odyssey Stroke Lab Tuttle flat-stick at the beginning of the week. According to Callaway, Schauffele likes how the three lines are designed all the way from the front to the back of the putter head to help frame the ball for the proper setup and better alignment.

The change paid dividends on day one at Pebble Beach, with the Californian firing a round of 66 to put him T2 overnight.

Much of Schauffele’s excellent work on day one was done with the new Odyssey Stroke Lab Tuttle, with the 25-year-old gaining 4.8 strokes on the greens during Thursday’s action. Schauffele currently stands second in strokes gained: putting.
