Adam’s Scott’s long putter spotted in a short version

Published

on

Adam Scott used a 49-inch version of Scotty Cameron’s Futura X Prototype putter to win the Masters. Not even two weeks later, Cameron has supplied the PGA Tour with a smaller, lighter version of Scott’s putter.

The Futura X Prototype short putter was spotted on the Zurich Classic practice putting green in 33-, 34- and 35-inch lengths.

It features the same aluminum construction and “Frozen Titanium” finish as Scott’s putter, as well as four removable weights that allow golfers to tune head weight and weight position.

Depending on a player’s stroke (and access to Tour putters, of course), a golfer could change the weight distribution to give the putter a higher or lower center of gravity, as well as a heel or toe weight bias.

Check out the photos below we snapped of the putter, and click here to see what members are saying in the forums.

    Beauty may only be skin deep, but sometimes ugly goes all the way to the bones. But I guess it just goes to prove that even with your tools it ain’t how, it’s how many.

    Is that a putter or a UFO?

    It has a strange beauty in its ugliness . My guess is that it puts a pure roll on the ball and function always surpasses appearance when you are trying to hole putts. The four interchangeable weights bothers me. It plays with your head like adjustable drivers. What’s next, an app to tell you how to adjust it for right to left breaks.

    Those weights are seriously distracting. I already can’t keep my head still. Gotta think that there’d be some reflection from the sun off of them as well.

    I’m glad I had a chance to see this putter close up! But saying it’s ugly is a disservice to ugly!!!

    Nick, did you see the toaster Sandy Lyle used at The Masters?

      HAHA yes KJ, excellent description. I was going to describe it as a casket. Did you ever see the detour Nick? hideous…

        I will credit the Jason Sobel Golf Channel Masters live blog for the description. I think I picked it up there.

    Masters win or not…it is quite possibly the ugliest putter on the planet.

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

Wilson’s new FG Tour V6 RAW irons (yes, they will rust)

Published

on

Wilson came out with its FG Tour V6 irons in 2016, but these new Raw versions have a different look… and with time, they’ll have a VERY different look.

The new FG Tour V6 Raw irons have an unplated finish, and they’re designed to “develop a unique patina based on age, exposure and use over time,” according to Wilson. This gives each iron a unique look, and one that’s far from the clean cut original FG Tour release that had a chrome finish (which won’t rust).

In addition to the rusting effect, the irons are different because they have a copper badge in the cavity that will eventually match the color of the golf club over time. Here’s a graphic mock-up of how the Raw irons may look overtime.

Like the original releases, the irons have tungsten weights and mass behind the impact area for a “forged feel” and “improved feedback,” according to the company.

The FG Tour V6 Raw irons are a custom option on Wilson.com, and are available through Wilson’s premium partner accounts as of today, Tuesday, June 19. According to Wilson, the Raw irons “are a very limited production run,” so only a certain amount of sets will even be built.
