Bettinardi unveils funky Waste Management Phoenix Open putter covers

Published

on

In honor of the four day golfing/beer festival, better known as the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Bettinardi has unveiled their creative new putter headcovers.

The headcovers feature plenty of stick men whetting their whistle and partying, just like golf fans at this week’s “Coliseum” 16th hole will be doing, with the odd character looking a little worse for wear which adds a nice touch of realism to the covers.

The designs and vibrant colors from Bettinardi suit the occasion that they pay homage to perfectly, while the saying “Party On” that features on the headcovers is about as apt as you could get for this week’s event.

    Guys relax. It’s the one event and it’s over. I have been sober 6 years and I think this is fun and it’s just a head cover.

    My 12 year old nephew will love this. His father probably not so much.

    All the up and coming kids involved in Drive Chip and Putt and the First Tee look at this and go “what a bunch of idiots”

Hot & Cold: Where strokes were won and lost at the BMW Championship

Published

on

In “Hot & Cold,” we’ll be focusing each week on what specific areas of the game players excelled and disappointed in throughout the previous tournament. On Sunday, Justin Thomas returned to the winner’s circle, and here’s a look at where some of the most notable players gained and lost strokes over the four days of action at the BMW Championship.

Hot

Justin Thomas broke through for the first time this year, and while it was a typically great week tee to green for the 26-year-old ( where he gained 11.7 strokes over the field), Thomas’ putting looks to have made the difference. For just the second time since February Thomas gained strokes with the flat-stick – gaining over five strokes on the greens at Medinah CC. Check out the clubs Thomas used on his way to victory in our WITB piece here.

Tony Finau is still awaiting the second PGA Tour title of his career, and if it wasn’t for a balky putter, then he may have achieved the feat last week. However, Finau led the field in strokes gained tee to green in Illinois, gaining 13.6 strokes over the field in this area which bodes well for the Tour finale.

Patrick Cantlay continues to impress, and he rode a red hot putter to a runner-up finish at last week’s BMW Championship. Cantlay gained six strokes over the field on the greens at Medinah, which is his joint best performance of his career in this area.

Cold

There is no sign of Dustin Johnson breaking out of his slump, and at last week’s BMW Championship the American suffered a horror show with his iron play. Johnson dropped 6.6 strokes to the field in this area – the worst performance of his career with his irons.

Jason Day’s split with Steve Williams didn’t have an immediate impact, as the Australian suffered a dismal week at Medinah. The Australian dropped 11.7 strokes to the field tee to green over the four days of action which is comfortably the worst performance of his career in this department.

Bryson DeChambeau’s game appears to be suffering from the pace of play controversy he has found himself embroiled in recently. DeChambeau lost strokes in every significant strokes gained category bar one at last week’s BMW Championship on his way to a T48 finish.

Some highlights from our round at #greywolfgolfcourse in Panorama, BC. The course was outstanding and the overall golf experience was next level – better than many more famous courses I have played including a few Ryder Cup venues. Was happy enough to walk off with a 4 on Cliffhanger, the Par 3 6th, after mis-clubbing and going slightly long and left. Not going in the intimidating ravine was the main thing. An awesome day, in the true sense of the word, at a proper, proper golf course. **** #greywolfgolfcourse #golf #golfcourse #mountaingolf #whyilovethisgame #golfislife #golfaddict #golfbc #golflandscapes #golfwrx #golfstagram #instagolf #golfporn #bucketlistgolf #golfcoursearchitecture #dougcarrickdesign

Stephen Curry sponsors the creation of golf program at Howard University

Published

on

NBA star and avid golfer Stephen Curry has donated a seven-figure sum to Howard University in a move that will see men’s and women’s golf teams at the school for at least the next six years.

As the Washington Post reported on Monday, this will be the first time the school will compete at the Division I level in the sport, and the university plans to have the teams ready to compete for the 2020/21 academic year.

 

 

Curry’s donation was partly inspired by Howard senior and golfer Otis Ferguson IV, and speaking on bringing golf back to Howard, the 31-year-old stated

“Golf is a sport that has changed my life in ways that are less tangible, but just as impactful. It’s a discipline that challenges your mental wherewithal from patience to focus, and is impossible to truly master, so when you hear about these passionate student athletes who have the talent but don’t have a fair shot at the game, it’s tough. I feel really honored to play a small role in the rich history of Howard University.”

Howard University’s previous collegiate golf team competed in Division II before disbanding three decades ago, and Curry’s donation is set to be paid out over six years in order for the golf team to become self-sustainable.
