    Congratulations to Tiger Woods on his 5th Masters victory, and 15th Major!

    That being said, it is 2019-

    Sadly, TaylorMade remains RH Only on the $2,000 custom? personal set of TW blade irons.

    Nike wasn’t.

      If it was cost-effective to do a lefty set they would. Just doesn’t appeal to enough people. 10% of US golfers are right handed. So you have 10% of the market, and the looking at just the really good players.

    What length is his driver?

      45.25″ from what I gather.

    When did TaylorMade start making Mizuno blades? When Tiger endorsed TaylorMade? Design input “ make some like these Mizunos. Or just stamp TaylorMade on these

    Seeing that worn spot on his putter, I wonder if it hasn’t developed a slight imperfection or small dent that would affect a true roll. I’m sure not many people have struck that many putts on the face. It is quite amazing that he has basically used that same putter for 20+ years I hear he has a few back ups but that none feel like the original. Pretty sure he could adapt rather quickly since it looks the same.

      I’d say no.

      Over time, random grit on the ball or face can scuff the sweet spot, but you won’t ever dent the metal face it at all, using putting speed against urethane.

      He used a nike putter for most of the years between his last two majors. He went back to his old putter but it’s not like he’s used it for the last 20+ years.

    This is such a great story for Tiger. Beat his demons, got himself back on the bike, and continues his dominance! The sky is the limit! Tiger grows up, kicks butt, and is there for his most important fans, his family. It will be delightful to hear all the country club Tiger haters downplay this victory, especially after their President gives him the Medal of Freedom (just to divert from the impending indictments)…

    First note. 23 shanks on his equipment that he just won a Masters with. Ok guys, sorry you don’t like his clubs or that he doesn’t have a mixed set. Whatever. He basically designed his own irons that look very similar to DJ and Rory’s TM blades. He wields them better than anyone ever pretty much. So what’s the problem shank voters? He plays traditional looking wedges instead of those hi-toe things (respect) and he went back to the most valuable putter in the game of golf. What’s not to like here? If he suddenly switched to Adam Scott’s f@$ing space-ship you’d have something to bag on.

    Second note. Interesting how many fashion mavens commenting on Golf WRX. His line of Nike clothes has always been fairly lame. This isn’t news. But, like, who cares?! The GOAT won again and it was a very cool historical moment for the game, the tournament and fans alike. EVERYBODY looks dumb in a green jacket. Doesn’t matter what collar is going on. Cuz, y’know, it’s a GREEN jacket. The only uglier jacket is the plaid one you get for winning that other tournament I can’t remember the name of right now.

    A lot of practice and winning putts have come off the face of that Scotty. Look at the dime size wear spot of the face…wow.

    The boys at TM must be partying hearty right about now. They backed the guy when he was lost and hurt and now look!

    We don’t know how or where it will end, but it’s not over yet. That said, Jack is still the GOAT.

        The internet has revealed that the world is full of dirt bags.

        The funny thing is, that one day, probably soon, someone is going to develop AI that traces these types of posts back to the the person who wrote them. They’ll be collected in a database somewhere. You’ll be able to figure out if your grandfather was a sad internet troll. People will lose their jobs over it.

          Tim wants people fired because they made fun of TW’s GF. What has this world come to?

            Apr 19, 2019 at 12:00 pm

            I think Tim just doesn’t like the dynamics that such judgment and sexism produces.

            But yea firing someone or calling them names is only gonna make it worse IMO. The internet didn’t “reveal” dirtbags, Maybe Tim was in denial lol. Keep ur head up Timmy u will find a way 🙂

              Lets face it Seb. Men judge women solely on their looks. Its in their nature. Tiger’s girl is a bit of a bow wow.

    Haha love it…. awesome win but when was the last time Scotty made a GSS with an oval track?
    Maybe because that’s not GSS and the original. Same one that Scotty milled out 2x 1 gram holes to get the perfect weight. But then needed to add red printer ink so the holes would not rust….
    When was the last time Stainless Steel rusted… ???
    All a farse so Scotty cam get $10k per GSS head..

        If you paid more attention and spoke less, perhaps you’d hear an answer to the question you rhetorically asked before immediately acting like you won some discussion.

      Love to see him win another major. Especially the Masters, but one more mock turtleneck and I was gonna lose it. Thankfully it was only 4, you know 1 for each day.

        mock neck for fit and trim men on the course, the rest of us look like jelly beans wearin’ on of those.

          Slipping a green jacket over a red mock is a bad look, really bad. You’d think Tiger would have had an extra shirt in his locker or something. I really can’t wait for the whole Nike athletic look to go away. It’s fine for dudes playing a muni on the weekends , but just doesn’t look professional.

          That being said, congrats to Tiger.

            According to who? Guys from the 60’s? Looks very professional to me and my golf buddies. Times change, attire changes.

Equipment

Tommy Fleetwood’s bag is as awesome as he is (Tommy Fleetwood WITB)

Published

on

I’m obsessed with this guy. If there was a movie about his life, Aaron Taylor Johnson would play him…can we make that happen?

His bag has taken over for my past obsession with Charles Howell III, David Toms, and Rocco Mediate. I’m drawn to players that tweak a bit, it keeps it fun for me on Getty Images at 3 a.m.

Much like a Bernhard Langer, there is no telling what OEM sticks will land in Fleetwood’s bag. It’s awesome and a sign of the non-contract “eat what you kill” mentality shared by some of the biggest names out there (BK and Patrick Reed to name a couple).

Tommy has messed around quite a bit in the past two years with his bag and the fun part is, he’s not afraid to shake it up.

Here is a partial list of clubs that were previously in the bag since ’17 leading up to his current setup

  • TaylorMade M3 driver (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Titleist 917 D2 driver (@ 8.5 degrees) (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 3-wood (13 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 5-wood (Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 80TX shaft)
  • Titleist 917 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Titleist TS3 3-wood (12.75 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Nike VR Pro Blades
  • Callaway MD4 wedges
  • Ping G410 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Ping G410 7-wood (18 degrees) (Mitsubishi Diamana BF 80T shaft)
  • Odyssey 2-Ball (plumbers neck)

His grips are also a fun one, he goes Blue Golf Pride TVC in his woods, Iomic Sticky in his irons, and black Golf Pride TVC in his wedges. God, I love this guy!

Tommy Fleetwood WITB @The Open

Driver: TaylorMade M6 (9 degrees @7.5)
*has lofted up a bit, his driver has been down to 6.5 I’ve heard.
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (45 inches)

3-wood: TaylorMade M6 (15 degrees @14)
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (42.5 inches)
*was in a Ping G410 until the Scottish Open where he switched into the M6.

Irons: TaylorMade GAPR Lo (@18.75), Srixon Z785 (4-iron, 23 degrees), TaylorMade P7TW (5-9)
Shafts: GAPR: Project X 6.5 (39.5 inches), 4-iron: Project X 6.5 (38.5 inches), 5-9: Project X 6.5 (38 inches @ 5-iron, minus 1/2 inch from there) (26, 30, 34, 38, 42 degrees)

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 (47, 52, 55, 60 degrees)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Wedge notes: 48.10F (bent to 47) Tour chrome finish
52.08F raw
56.10 (bent 55) raw
60.08 raw

Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro #3
Grip: Super Stroke Mid Slim 2.0


Quick thought: I do see a specific trend when it comes to free agents, and it’s mildly telling. Keep in mind I understand that it’s not 100 percent, but the trends are there.

In woods and wedges specifically, TaylorMade seems to be a popular choice in the overall woods category for non-signed players and Vokey is hands down the wedge of choice. Makes sense in my opinion, I’m not a big “best company” guy, but I do understand the choice. Both companies make and have made extremely high-performing sticks for many years. Consistency in anything is a hard opponent to beat. When Nike bounced out of clubs Rory, BK, Casey, and a few others put Vokeys straight in, and a BK and Casey put TM woods in the bag. (Just an example for context)

Anyway, Tommy Fleetwood is four back going into the final round. I have a weird feeling if it blows he could be holding a trophy.
