A great event ran by @thehivegc, @blsully18 and @ccwoodmore. Golfing from sunrise to sunset is tiring but tons of great shots, terrible shots and lots of laughs. Roughly 80 holes plus or minus a couple (lost count ????) _ Golf is more than a game and sometimes we all lose sight of that (me included). There are ups and downs but enjoy the journey. #playorperish . . . . . #golf #golfer #golfers #golfing #golfaddict #golfislife #carryyourclubs #burningcartsociety #golfphotography #instagolf #instagolfer #greatview #enjoy #golfismorethanagame #summersolstice #golfbabes #golfwrx #teamcallaway #callaway #lambcrafted #mackenziegolfbags #sugarloafsocialclub #ustmamiya #teamustm #walk #enjoythejourney #content #sunset

On a technical scale, twisted necks are one of the trickiest things for me to make by hand. On a machinist scale, nailing down surface finishes on a specific material over time is very involved. Not to mention how difficult it can be to get inlays of organic material to fit in metal. As far as finishes go, this might be the most time I have ever spent on one putter. Hand stamping evenly and having consistent letter depth can be super tricky and takes so many hours of practice it's not even funny. Running weld beads on a part you've invested countless hours in might be the most nerve racking state of mind to be in to try and not let your hand slip or wobble. Having experience over time with a literal bin of scrapped parts is all that can make you better. I can say from first hand experience, I know probably a 1000 ways of how not to make a putter. I try and learn and get better with every single piece I make. I want the next part I make to always be a learning opportunity for me to get better. After all of that is said and done, I offically give you the 3rd iteration in my personal Signature Series. As an homage to the first I have revisited pearl with an intense variation I couldn't be more pleased with. #signatureseries#olsonmfg

Erik van Rooyen’s ankle-shy pants caused quite a stir at The Open

Published

on

Erik van Rooyen’s 68 in round two vaulted him up the leaderboard and into contention on Friday morning at Royal Portrush. But while the South African’s golf has been impressive over the opening two days at The Open, it’s van Rooyen’s pants which have got everyone talking.

The 29-year-old’s ankle shy red pants on Friday were such a hot topic that they even dominated the chatter during his post-round media duties. Following his second round, van Rooyen was asked seven questions by the press, and five of those were about his pants.

Speaking on the pants in question, van Rooyen confidently stated after his round

“I like the fact that it’s a little bit different yet still classy at the same time. It’s not out there and whacky with a bunch of flashy colors … If you’re going to wear it, you’ve got to own it. I feel like I’m owning it.”

However, while the South African may feel that way, his trousers received a much more mixed reaction on social media.

What’s your take on Erik van Rooyen’s polarizing pants, WRXers?

Strong start, then tremendous misfortune: David Duval cards a 13 after playing the wrong ball

Published

on

David Duval suffered a nightmare first round at Royal Portrush on Thursday, and during his opening nine, the 2001 Claret Jug winner recorded the highest score on a single hole at The Open for 69 years.

The 47-year-old came to the par-5 seventh hole having played his previous two holes five-over-par, but that was nothing compared to what Duval was about to experience.

Duval played the wrong ball on the seventh hole, and his entire play on the hole even managed to confuse the official scoreboard. The former Open Champion was initially credited with a triple-bogey eight on the par-5, which was then adjusted to a whopping 15, before being changed to a 13.

As you would expect, Twitter had plenty to say on the octuple bogey.

*Update*

Thursday afternoon, the R&A announced on The Open’s website that Duval’s score had again been adjusted from a 13 to a 14, stating

“The adjustment was made following an error in reviewing his score on the 7th hole. David lost his first two balls from the tee and then played a wrong ball for the third ball played from the tee. On discovering the mistake at the green he had to return to where the wrong ball was played but the correct ball could not be found. Therefore he had to play again from the tee for a fourth time under penalty of stroke and distance. He played six shots in completing the hole with the fourth ball from the tee. He incurred a two-shot penalty for playing the wrong ball but the strokes played with the wrong ball do not count in his score (Rule 6.3c).”

The correction results in Duval’s opening round becoming 91, 20-over-par.
