Scotty Cameron PGA Show: Table Rock Golf

Published

on

Every year at the PGA Show you can count on some madness.

Every Thursday at 8 a.m. for years there is a line of buyers ready to pull the trigger on putters made by Scotty Cameron at Jim Butler’s “Table Rock Golf” booth, where he and his family manage one of the biggest putter spectacles on earth.

Just like at you local deli counter, you have to draw a number to get in line to buy a putter that can cost as much as $20,000.

I was let in early to take photos and Jim Butler said, “You have 8 more minutes before you have to leave. That is when we will let in five customers at a time.”

Scotty Cameron makes garage putters for a few sellers in the world and Table Rock Golf is one. Every year Jim Butler orchestrates a masterpiece of putter madness for the first two to three hours of the PGA Merchandise Show, where buyers from around the world come to feed on the rare garage putter availability.

Only by watching this from a distance can you see the true genius of Scotty Cameron and what his last 20 plus years has created. The pace of this booth and the stress on the faces of the buyers waiting in line as they make split decisions that can cost from $900 to $20,000.00 per putter makes for great theater.

Below are photos of rarest of the rare putters at the Table Rock booth. Thanks for the energy, Jim and family. Thanks for the passion of all you putter collectors, and most importantly, thank you to Scotty Cameron for leading the way and creating this market through your passion and creativity.

    Don’t get me wrong, I have much respect for anyone who loves his craft, but where is the lefty love? Where is the Scotty for us lefties with the same abundance that’s there for the common folk (righties)?

    I agree. I too have several SC putters and I am curios as to why all the haters on WRX?? I have owned the Tour version putters for three years and when it comes time to switch it up I can post a for sale ad and sell it for what I paid for it or more. What other putter manufacturer can you say the same for?

    Love the Scotty Cameron putters and have enjoyed using mine for the last 2 years.

    They exude class, style and performance and come with great head covers as well.

    Hard to believe some of them cost as much as $20,000 though?

The hottest blade irons in golf right now

Published

on

As we’ve written before, the decision to put a new driver in the bag is usually obvious. Better numbers at testing, perceptibly longer distance, and as long as your bank account allows, you have your new gamer.

The iron switch, however, is a trickier beast. Comfort with the variety of shots one needs to hit is key. Confidence from one’s long irons through the higher lofts is critical. Thus, even the greatest enthusiasm for a new iron release isn’t always followed by a mass exodus to gaming said irons. This is doubly true at the professional level, where the tools are critical to a player’s livelihood.

That said, the combination of forum chatter, GolfWRX member enthusiasm, and what we’re spotting in our WITB photos from tour stops are a reliable indicator of the hottest irons in the game.

And judging by the response to our recent Instagram post, we’re confident that these four models are the hottest blade irons in golf right now.

Callaway Apex MB

Buzz built steadily for the Apex MB iron when we first spotted them in Tour players’ bags at the beginning of 2017. The irons are the product of direct feedback from the company’s Tour staffers, according to Luke Williams, Director of Product and Brand Management at Callaway. Forged from 1025 Carbon Steel, these irons have the shortest blade lengths, the thinnest soles and the smallest overall heads in the vast line of Callaway irons. They’re designed for maximum workability, and for tour-desired turf interaction.

Mizuno MP-18

The pioneers of Grain-Flow Forging, Mizuno went back to its roots with the MP-18 iron model. A throwback to the great muscle backs in the company’s history, Mizuno was shooting for the look of an iron that could have been forged a century ago. Shorter blade length, cambered top line, sharp, compact wedges, all combined with the most minimal badging make the MP-18 an instant classic that set the GolfWRX forums afire.

TaylorMade P730

TaylorMade’s P730, particularly in its prototype incarnations, made quite a splash on the PGA Tour. Building on the heritage of the TP-MB irons, P730 was developed in collaboration with the very best players in the world. The 1025 carbon steel irons irons feature a smaller profile and crisper lines than the MB series irons. The combination of the clean look and a deep rear groove have players drooling. Discussing working with Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose to design the P730, TM’s Senior Director of Irons, Tomo Bystedt said, “What these players need is a very low-inertia club that they can [manipulate] easily, almost like a surgeon’s scalpel.” Behold the scalpel.

Titleist 718 MB

“For the purist there is no substitute for a one-piece, muscle back iron. The 718 MB is the modern choice for those desiring a traditional forged look and feel,” says Titleist in the 718 MB marketing materials.

It’s hard to argue with that statement from the “appearance of a classic forged iron” standpoint. Purists appreciate that the 718 MB maintains Titleist’s traditional lofts (the 6-iron is 31 degrees, the pitching-wedge is 47 degrees), thin top-line, minimal offset, and limited badging. In short, if it ain’t broke…
