Putting legend Kenny Knox releases line of putters, wedges



If there ever were a golfer who knew the importance of good short-game clubs, it was Kenny Knox. The three-time PGA Tour event winner at one point held the record for the fewest number of putts in a tournament. So it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about putters and wedges.

With those credentials, it’s no surprise that Knox would create his own line of putters and wedges.

Knox has a pair of putters for sale, each set at $269.99. The 18 and the 93 have what Knox calls a “4-3-2-1” loft. The lofts on the face decrease from 4 degrees at the top to 1 degree at the bottom. This pattern is promoted to minimize the effects of bad hand positioning by creating early roll.

With the design, the ball always come off the face with 2.5 degree loft, Knox said.

“It doesn’t drive into the ground like these other negative-loft putters,” Knox said. “It does have some loft, so the ball comes off the face softer, lands softer and then has a true roll and as a result. Distance control is more consistent.”

The differences Knox’s two putters are their offsets and finish. The 18 has a half-shaft offset and comes in chrome. The 93 has a full-shaft offset and comes in black chrome and brushed satin.

The name “18” is derived from one of Knox’s putting records, 18 putts for 18 holes, a record that he now shares with Corey Pavin. The name “93” comes from another one of Knox’s old putting records, 93 putts in a 72-hole tournament (the record has since been eclipsed by David Frost, who recorded 92 putts in an event). Another one of Knox’s former putting records, eight putts in nine holes, was overtaken by short-game instructor Stan Utley, who recorded only six putts in nine holes.

Knox also has three wedges for sale, each selling $119.99. There are 52-, 56- and 60-degree models, each weighing 303 grams.

“These were designed in conjunction with my designer and Jose Maria Olazabal,” Knox said. “What Seve taught us was to take the heel and the toe and ground those off, which raises that center of gravity. What that does, is when you hit the ball, it stays on the face longer.”

    18 putts in 18 holes for pavin? Wait does that mean that a 300 dollar putter is useless? Since pavin uses a bullseye and which must mean it is the golfer not the equipment. So if a person spent 300 dollars on putting lessons they should be better off than having bought the new putter. However these clubs look great.

      Looks to me like Kenny Knox hooked up with Bob from Txema. Same wedges, same putter, different stamps. Deceptive?

        Technically EVERYBODY is copying off of Ping, and not just the Anser. Scotty for sure is not the only one in the industry to have ripped off ideas.

    Yawn. If my grandmother came out with a line of wedges and “custom” putters that I’ve seen a million times before I wouldn’t be shocked.

    I had the opportunity to try these wedges and putter two weeks ago. I had to pry them out of the hands of my fellow golf professionals as they were so popular. The are a great product.

The hottest blade irons in golf right now



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…
