TaylorMade’s bag-ier Staff Bags for Doral

Published

on

This week at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, TaylorMade is doing its official launch of the RocketBallz Stage 2 drivers, fairway woods and hybrids that five lucky GolfWRXers are attending (follow their progress here).

TaylorMade says this year’s line up is “RocketBallz-ier” than last year’s model — particularly the RBZ Stage 2 fairway woods, which the company claims are 10 yards longer than last year’s 17-yard-longer RBZ fairway woods thanks to a stronger, more flexible face material.

TaylorMade has also release a Facebook app that will allow users to create their TaylorMade Stage 2 Staff Bag with their “name-ier” name on it. After “liking” the page, users can enter a contest for a chance to win a real customized RBZ Stage 2-ier Staff Bag and a 3 wood.

Check out the photos we’ve snapped of TaylorMade staffers’ bags this week at Doral, which are “bag-ier” than their bags last week, as well as the special stand bags TaylorMade made for the “WRX-ier” contest winners.

    These are kind of ugly and boring. I liked it a lot better when they put the players’ driver specs on the bag a while back. That was pretty cool/informative.

    They actually thought of something lamer than the facepaint. Based on the number of tmag paid players vs. number of wins, they are not doing well at all. Other brands are smoking them !!! Those are the facts, more factzzzier than any hearsayier conjectureriers. Worse still is their ads featuring pros who imply that they play certain iron(zz) but in fact are playing MBs or CBs. More deceptiveier than everer . . .

    Its quirky but at the very least it is something entertaining. It helps that the TaylorMade clubs are winning, so they must be doing something right.

    I know they’re doing it for the kids, to bring more kids into the game, but it’s a but too childish for the adults to really take this seriously.

      It should be about bringing in the younger generation…The game won’t grow unless you bring in new talent. You’re not gonna be 42 forever K……

Toulon Santa Monica: The inside scoop

Published

on

As many have already seen this week in the forums, we spotted a brand new model from Toulon: the Santa Monica.

There were a lot of finer details going on with this putter that got peoples ears up including

  • The one-piece design – no variable weight sole plate
  • A classic head shape with Toulon refinements
  • The finish & overall aesthetics

Thanks to a ton of positive feedback, we had to find out more.  So, we went right to the top and called up Sean Toulon to find out about this new model and what else might be coming in the near future.

Here’s what we know:

The Santa Monica, that was captured is part of a larger project that will be going all out when it comes to customization and “showing the world what we can do when it comes to design and manufacturing,” according to Toulon. This line of putters will not be available on the grand scale and instead will focus on individual pieces and prioritize the customer experience.

This new line from Toulon will also include new putters not yet seen, although we have one name so far: La Grange (shout out to Texas!), and it will also include different materials not currently found in the Toulon/Odyssey line. The focus will be 100 percent on boutique, different and just for you, said Toulon. The new line will center around exercising total creativity, and also have the potential for one-off and limited-number pieces.

We don’t have a timeline for when these will become available to the public, but when we do, we will be sure to let you know.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Viktor Hovland signing with Ping”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Dave D and it surrounds Viktor Hovland’s future as a Ping staffer. There has been plenty of chatter on our forums after Dave D shared this post from @golfnation_’s Instagram account.

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.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Golf Digest’s E. Michael Johnson reported Hovland is now a Ping man, writing he “signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat.”
