Return of the mock: Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters scripting

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ scripting for next week’s Masters Championship has been unveiled on social media, and the 43-year-old will wear mock neck shirts each day of the event as he goes in search of major championship number 15.

Golfweek’s David Dusek got the scoop and posted the image of the shirts Woods will wear at Augusta next week, as well as images of additional Nike footwear (it’s unlikely Woods will don the Nike Tour Premier shoes pictured because, well, he doesn’t deviate from the TW71 or wear anything other than solid white or black footwear).

Here’s an additional look at the TW Vapor Mock polos, via Nike. Woods is also expected to wear the custom TW pant he’s sported for the past couple of seasons, as well as the TW Aerobill Classic 99 hat.

What do you think of Woods’ Masters gear, WRXers?

    Mocks work super well and look great as a cold-weather workout/sports base-layer, but as a main layer look sloppy and just out-of-tune.

    From the super-baggy late 90’s early 00’s, to the mock turtle, to the pleated pants, to the leather belt with silver buckle, to the staid black or white shoes, Nike could not have signed a more boring, traditional player to market their otherwise advertised cutting-edge & modern athletic apparel.

    Always thought he was extremely well dressed, so of the best on tour, but never been a fan of a mock collarless shirt, save save those for the gym.

    It was a bad look years ago and it’s even worse now!

    Hate the mock and the blade collars, but then again I am not paying anything near full boat for a shirt so I am not who they are after.

Forum Thread of the Day: “What has made it into your bag so far in 2019?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day discusses new equipment that has made it into the bags of our members so far in 2019. From new club additions to shaft changes, our members share the tweaks they have made so far this year and divulge what has been successful as well as what has failed to work for them.

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.

  • Jackal66: “Went from 816 DBD Alpha driver to M3. Changed Odyssey Fang putter to Scotty Cameron Newport putter. Bought a 56° wedge and it is competing with my 53° Diadic.”
  • ObiwanForAll: “Gone all in with TaylorMade clubs and UST shafts.”
  • macedan: “Successes- Ping G400 9*, thought the smaller head size may hamper my confidence, but It has performed beautifully. Mizuno ST180 16*, No words, performs as needed and looks absolutely sharp. Middle of the road- Ping G Crossover 21*, unfortunately, I fell into a swing slump across the bag not long after buying it. When my swing is on, it is one of my absolute favorites in the bag. My biggest complaint is just the appearance of the massive amount of offset.”
  • pollock21: “Been quite a year…TS3 knocked out my trusty G400 LST which was quite a feat. Now shafted with 130 Rogue Silver. I500 w/LZ 7.0 125’s experiment is on the way out. They’ve been excellent irons for me, but I just hit them obnoxiously long. Currently looking for my next set. Also dabbling with a hi-toe 60 to replace my trusty 60* Glide 2.0 stealth. So far, I’m loving it. Last change was putting in the copper spider x which knocked out my ketcsh and scotty newport 2.0.  Failed experiment so far with the flash sz fairway. Putting the trusty 16M2 back in the bag. Definitely moving on from the flash, I’m just not as consistent with it.”
  • shanx: “Took a lesson late spring and my ballstriking has improved. I ditched the Callaway X20 Pros, Cally X Forged ’07s, added Mizzy MP15s with C Taper Lites. Not sure if those shafts will work for me in the long run, but I am going to play them for a bit as I am still working on swing changes from the lesson. Rotating three drivers (2 Titleists and a Callaway Epic), thinking about going to get fit for my driver soon.”

From the GolfWRX Vault: Essential tips, tricks, and tools for building clubs at home

Published

on

In addition to continuing to look forward to new content that will serve and engage our readership, we also want to showcase standout pieces that remain relevant from years past. In particular, articles with a club building or instruction focus continue to deliver value and convey useful information well after their publish dates.

We want to make sure that once an article falls off the front page as new content is covered it isn’t relegated to the back pages of our website.

We hope that you’ll appreciate and find value in this effort, and the first article from the GolfWRX Vault is a perfect example of a piece that not only remains relevant and engaging, but one that the author still gets questions about and routinely refers readers to.

Ryan Barath, well before his time as a full-time WRX staffer, wrote “Building golf clubs at home: The essential tips, tricks, and tools” back in October of 2016.

In the piece, Barath discusses both the elements of setting up a shop in general and what he has done in his basement workspace in particular.

A taste of the piece.

One of the most important things about building clubs is doing it properly with the right tools, and doing it safely. After setting up up multiple build shops over the years, from small hobby shops to large multi-station build shops, having the opportunity to build my own home shop from the ground up was something I always looked forward to. My shop is in my basement, and because of the limited space, it was imperative to find as many space saving-solutions as possible.

Like many people with a hobby they are passionate about, I look forward to one day having a stand-alone garage for all of my tools (and maybe a hitting net), but for now my basement gets the job done. I’m lucky to have access to a much large machine shop where I do wedge grinding, finishing and sandblasting, which are all jobs that make a lot more noise and create a lot more dust. I can’t get away with doing those things in a confined space, but we’ll touch on that later.

Although not a tool, arguably the most important piece of equipment is the workbench. Having a quality workbench is needed because of the amount of abuse that it will take over its lifespan. Also, just like a great kitchen design, you need counter space and a good workbench provides that. Dropping a clubhead (especially a driver or fairway wood with nice paint job) can be costly. The next extension of the workbench is a good vice that has been properly attached to the bench with bolts. Like I’ve said in previous articles, I believe when you do something you should take the time to do it properly. I once saw a vice screwed into a workbench with 1.25-inch screws, and as soon as someone went to use the vice it ripped out and took a club with it.

Check out the full piece here.
