What GolfWRXers are saying about their dream bag if money was no object

Published

on

In our forums, GolfWRXers have been discussing the clubs they would play if cost was no object. WRXer ‘OsnolaKinnard’ kicks off the thread with his dream bag:

  • “Callaway Maverik Sub Zero set at 9.5*, square, with a KBS Tour Driven 70-gram Category 3 shaft at 44.5” long and a D4 SW
  • FW wood would be a Tour Edge Exotics EXS Pro at 16* with the same shaft as my driver.
  • Hybrids would be my old Kasco K2K in 19 and 22*, but completely refinished and made to look as new. Same factory K2K shafts in stiff flex. I know there are more modern choices available, but I simply have never seen or hit a club that is as dependable and versatile and easy to use as these. I will stay with them.
  • My 5 and 6 iron would be Miura CB57’s. I have hit these before, and love the look and feel. I would have them shafted the Paderson Kinettix ‘Single length” shafts with 95 gram, stiff flex, and mid-iron profile. They would be based off of a 39″ 5 iron and 38.5″ 6 iron. I would have the heads bent 2* upright and at 26 and 30* loft. I would have to find some sort of cool ‘red, white and blue’ themed ferrule and paint fill for them. I would have any club shafted that needs a ferrule with this same theme.
  • My 7-9 irons would be Miura MB101’s, but they would be set up for ‘single length’ play. I would have them 2* upright and lofts of 35, 40, and 45*. I would have these shafted with the Paderson Kinettix single-length shafts. 95Gram, stiff flex, Short Iron Profile all at 37.5″ long
  • My PW, SW, and LW would be an interesting trip to Artisan Golf for a full fitting. I would go with whatever fits and ‘do it all’ grind they came up with, as well as shaft fitting. Loft would be 50, 55 and 60. I would push for the Paderson Kinnetix shafts I have in the other wedges, but again, if the fitting came up or showed something with ‘better results’, I’d go with it. I would ask for them to be all the same length, lie, and weight, but at the +1″ over standard length wedges…again, pending results of the fitting.
  • I am going to have to have two putters. One of them just because I like the way it is shaped and looks, but the other to really play and use. The vanity putter is the Scotty Cameron Special Select Del Mar. This is, IMO, the best-shaped putter I have ever seen. It just looks attractive to my eye, and I dig it. I do not put ‘poorly’ with it, but there are better options for me. My every day putter would be a face-balanced Scotty Cameron Newport 2. I would get fit and make sure it was the right putter for me.
  • All of my clubs would have Best Grips leather grips. The Driver, FW wood and Hybrids would have Blue. The 5-9 irons will have white grips, and the PW-LW will have Red Grips…and I chose that order because RED is to remind me that I want to make a birdie…and be ‘in the red’.
  • Since I no longer will walk and play…I am going to have to get a cool bag. I will want some sort of Texas-themed golf bag. I’d probably collaborate with Best Grips, and whoever makes a really cool staff bag. I am thinking some combination of “come and take it”, Lonestar Flag, Red white and blue…that sort of thing.”

And our members have been discussing what they would plump for if money were no object.

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.

  • jjfcpa: “I would have three sets. Playing good set – Callaway’s mixed possibly with other OEM’S GI setup. Playing well set – Callaway’s mixed with other OEM’s players distance setup. Playing great set – Miura irons with Callaway and other OEM’s player’s distance setup. Don’t ask which one would get used the least but the most desirable.”
  • cj4501: “Some sort of Japanese irons for sure. Seven or Itobori.”
  • Vater: “Miura. And lessons to be able to use them well.”
  • golf4fun: “Srixon irons, TM woods and Toulon garage Chicago and Cally wedges.”
  • MinimalistGC: “Miura + Linksoul Color Theory Irons OR/and have National Custom Works build me a minimalist set of irons.”

Bettinardi signs LPGA duo Muni He and Albane Valenzuela

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has announced its partnership with LPGA rising stars Muni He and Albane Valenzuela.

Muni He, who qualified for the LPGA Tour in 2019 and is well-known for her large platform and fashion influence on social media, will use Bettinardi’s DASS QB8 Mid-Slant Tour Dept. putter.

He’s DASS QB8 Mid-Slant Tour Dept. putter is milled to 360 grams and features an oil rubbed bronze PVD finish. The flat-stick is constructed of double aged stainless steel and contains the brand’s F.I.T face milling.

The 21-year-old returned to action last week at the LPGA Tour’s Marathon Classic and will tee it up once again with the Bettinardi putter in her bag at this week’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open.

Speaking on joining Team Bettinardi, He stated

“I’m very excited to join the Bettinardi family. The putter gives me great confidence on the greens and hoping that I could bring out my best game for the rest of the season with the support of the Bettinardi team.”

The company have also signed the Chilean Albane Valenzuela to its tour staff, who will tee it up this week using Bettinardi’s INOVAI 6.0 Tour Dept. putter.

The 22-year-old joined the LPGA Tour after being awarded the Pac-12 Women’s Golfer of the Year while at Stanford University. Other accolades include representing Switzerland at the 2016 Olympics, twice finishing runner up in the U.S. Women’s Amateur as well as being an ANNIKA Award finalist.

Speaking after joining Bettinardi, Valenzuela said

”I am thrilled to partner with Bettinardi Golf as I begin my professional career. The company’s technology, craftsmanship and attention to detail give me the confidence that I will be competing with the best putters in my bag. The ability to work with Bettinardi’s designers to customize a putter that optimizes my stroke will be a huge asset for me.”

He and Valenzuela are the latest LPGA players to join Team Bettinardi which features the likes of Annie Park and China’s No. 2 player, Yu Liu.
