I suspect no Covert yet for Tiger right? That would be all over the place. Really love the new Cobra stuff and how everything (from all OEMs) is so custom to each player now-a-days. I love that Poulter can use white and Fowler can use Orange. Really cool.

I thought the tournament was an 18 man field?

Why were Freddie and Charley Hoffman there? at least I'm assuming that's who it was.

No, he was walking inside the ropes with Rickie's Pro-Am group.  I think the kids dad was playing with RF.  The kid had been putting with Rickie's putter on the 9th green and was giving it back to RF on the 10th tee.

The kids name is Danny. He is a huge Rickie Fowler fan.  Rickie was great about inviting him in and letting him walk with him inside the ropes here the last few days. He's a member here at the club so its been great for him to walk with his idol.

From this golfweek article: http://golfweek.com/...e-club-fitting/


Bubba’s unusual grips: He plays Ping’s 703 Gold grip, which is a rubber grip made by Golf Pride. It is oversized by one-32nd of an inch. After that, his grip setup gets pretty weird.

On the top half of the shaft, Rollins installs 10 layers of tape. On the bottom half, he installs 12 layers. One complete layer of tape goes around all that.

How big is this grip? Huge. Many touring pros and most amateurs use just one wrap of tape underneath the grip; Watson has double-digit wraps.

To install the grip over the top of that mountain of tape, Rollins explained, “You have to make sure it’s good and wet (with grip solvent). Bubba used to play a full-cord grip, and they would split quite a bit when we tried to put them on. These rubber grips have some stretch to them, so usually there’s no problem.”

Furthermore, Watson uses a ribbed Reminder grip, which is designed to be placed at the bottom of the grip, in the 6 o’clock position.

Watson’s Reminder is set in the 8 o’clock position. He does this so that his clubhead will be open at address, because, according to Rollins, “the last thing in the world he wants to do is hook the ball on a regular shot.”
