What is the emblem on the putter face? Looks like short neck putter?

I am surprised his 3W is not pink.

I'm sure this has been answered in another thread somewhere, but what are Bubba's swing weights?  Are they pretty "light" because of that baseball bat handle attached to the end of his clubs?

Much solvent is definitely needed to install those grips! Yowza!

I did see the SW info for his woods and wedges, however, didn't find anything for his irons...  Seems like that bag must weigh a ton with all that tape and maintaining a SW in that D4/5 range.

BiMatrx.  Incredible.  I had one.  Remember the day on the range that Tiger Woods spent with one?  The golf equipment world went nuts, overnight.

Is there another tour player anywhere who is using one?

Please guys.  I'm just here to expand our perspectives ie golf iq.  

His 2 iron heel is ground down about 25 %.  

I know it takes world class talent to hit shots etc.  But little things like this make a club night and day.  
For example most of us would hit it fat with a 2 iron, but with a flattened heel edge this 2 iron is almost like a hybrid.  Not exactly but you know what I mean hopefully.  PXG has the same grinds on their long irons.  

In fact a lot of these pics show bubbas irons ground down the heel .  

These are way different than s55's off the rack.  

It's the indian and the arrow.  Neither one or the other.  It's both guys!

We tend to focus on grips, shafts and the color of his driver.  

These pro's have a lot of tweaks that make their equipment wake up.
