Today’s Forum Thread of the Day was submitted by RonSwanson and concerns Dustin Johnson’s new Spider X Putter. Johnson didn’t appear to have the putter in play at Kapalua but was seen practicing with the flat-stick, and it has our members very interested.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire thread to see extra photos and share your thoughts on the putter at the link below.

  • konklifer: “An improvement in looks. Is the slant a little less pronounced or is it just the angle?”
  • bladehunter: “Every time I’m out. TM pulls me back in.  That looks interesting.”
  • calfan36: “Would look better with longer wings like the traditional Spiders but I like the alignment line.”
  • GoGoErky: “Been debating on getting a spider and might have to give this one a go.”

    I think I could make that 6 inch putt with a branding iron.

    He’s such a good boy. He’ll use it a couple times to help sell it for the sponsor and then he’ll just go back to playing his blade as usual

    This DJ tour-tested prototype Spider-X putter has got to an improvement over previous iterations … a new and improved design for better performance all round. The looks are good and I would bag this baby if it’s available for sale.

Forum Thread of the Day: “What’s your bunker play set up?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Tmiller72 who asks fellow members to share their bunker play set up. From loft and bounce, as well as discussing different scenarios, our members share and discuss their philosophy and different strategies for when they are in the sand.

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.

  • ChipNRun: “I use my 54/12 SW. I try to keep my weight even on both feet, so I don’t dig in too much. Also…If I need to get it up really quick, it’s the 60/10. If the sand is wet and hard-packed, I’ll pick it off the top with a PW.”
  • Evilduckhunter: “Short ones or short sided is the TM Hi Toe 60 10 with four way sole. Longer shots it’s the Cleveland RTX4 56 10 full grind. I did give the 56 some heel and trailing edge relief.”
  • Joelsim: “Mack Daddy 4 58* X Grind, weight 75% on front foot, clubface very open, full swing with lots of speed. For longer bunker shots, i.e. over 20 feet, I use a lower lofted club, which one depends on the distance. Same full stroke every time.”
  • PlayfromtheBrain: “Vokey 60.06 K-grind (low bounce). I enjoy using it anywhere from about 90 yards and in, though the sand is where the grind really proves its worth. The wide sole pretty much guarantees a decent or better out for me. It’s great around the green, and I have no problem opening it up for different shots. Definitely has inspired confidence. This type of grind demands near perfect contact, but there isn’t a more versatile wedge than one with a wide sole and lower bounce.
