Photos from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Published

GolfWRX is live this week from the Monterey Peninsula in Pebble Beach, Calif., for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, the most scenic and celebrity-filled event on the PGA Tour. Pebble Beach Golf Links sits atop cliffs that overlook Carmel Bay, producing both breathtaking views and an imposing threat. The multi-course event is also played on Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course.

Phil Mickelson looks to capture his fifth win at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but has been battling lower back issues. He withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines due to injury, and had a lack luster performance in his title defense at last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, aside from throwing footballs into the grandstands.

Brandt Snedeker, this week’s defending champion, and two-time champion Dustin Johnson are also headliners for the tournament, which features seven of the top-21 players in the world rankings.  Snedeker broke the tournament scoring record last year en route to victory, and also captured the pro-am division title alongside fellow Vanderbilt alum Toby Wilt. Johnson will team up again this year with NHL Hall-of-Famer and future father-in-law Wayne “The Great One” Gretzky, or better known in the Instagram/Twitter world as Paulina Gretzky’s dad.

Other notable celebrities are NFL quarterbacks Tom Brady, Alex Smith, and Aaron Rodgers, NFL Coach Bill Belichick, musicians Kid Rock, Kenny G and Darius Rucker, surfer Kelly Slater, tennis star Andy Roddick, actor Don Cheadle, and of course, the rumblin’ stumblin’ sports reporter Chris Berman.

    Few things- What happened to Daly? Why’d he put the lbs back on? I’m kinda suprised Peyton showed up after that EMBARRASSING performance a few days ago. And, lastly who is that hot “ethnic” chick?

      why wouldn’t Peyton show up?? If anything it proves he is a gentleman and not some whiny pro athlete/sore loser who runs and hides after a poor performance. Or, was it an OUTSTANDING defensive job by the Seahawks??

      Daly probably ate more calories than what he burned off… that is how one “puts the lbs back on”… I am sure he is sorry that he disappointed you….

      And I am sure the “hot ethnic chick” would jump at the chance to introduce herself you seeing how nicely you treat everyone else.

        It really doesn’t prove he is a gentleman. Not sure where you got that from. It proves it didn’t bother him that much to be humiliated by Seattle’s defense. Yes, Seattle embarrassed him.

        I was wondering WHY not HOW Daly put the weight back on.

        You’re right. I think she would rather introduce herself to someone boring like you with no opinions whatsoever and a

Inside Collin Morikawa’s recent golf ball, driver, 3-wood, and “Proto” iron changes

Published

on

As you probably know by now, Collin Morikawa switched putters after the first round of The Masters, and he ultimately went on to finish T3.

The putter was far from the only change he made last week, however, and his bag is continuing to change this week at the 2024 RBC Heritage.

On the range of The Masters, Morikawa worked closely with Adrian Reitveld, TaylorMade’s Senior Manager of Tour at TaylorMade, to find the perfect driver and 3-wood setups.

Morikawa started off 2024 by switching into TaylorMade’s Qi10 Max driver, but since went back to his faithful TaylorMade SIM – yes, the original SIM from 2020. Somehow, some way, it seems Morikawa always ends up back in that driver, which he used to win the 2020 PGA Championship, and the 2021 Open Championship.

At The Masters, however, Rietveld said the duo found the driver head that allowed “zero compromise” on Morikawa’s preferred fade flight and spin. To match his preferences, they landed on a TaylorMade Qi10 LS 9-degree head, and the lie angle is a touch flatter than his former SIM.

“It’s faster than his gamer, and I think what we found is it fits his desired shot shape, with zero compromise” Rietveld told GolfWRX.com on Wednesday at the RBC Heritage.

Then, to replace his former SIM rocket 3-wood, Morikawa decided to switch into the TaylorMade Qi10 core model 13.5-degree rocket head, with an adjustable hosel.

“He likes the spin characteristics of that head,” Rietveld said. “Now he’s interesting because with Collin, you can turn up at a tournament, and you look at his 3-wood, and he’s changed the setting. One day there’s more loft on it, one day there’s less loft on it. He’s that type of guy. He’s not scared to use the adjustability of the club.

“And I think he felt our titanium head didn’t spin as low as his original SIM. So we did some work with the other head, just because he liked the feel of it. It was a little high launching, so we fit him into something with less loft. It’s a naughty little piece of equipment.” 

In addition to the driver and fairway wood changes, Morikawa also debuted his new “MySymbol” jersey No. 5 TP5x golf ball at The Masters. Morikawa’s choice of symbols is likely tied to his love of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.

Not enough changes for you? There’s one more.

On Wednesday at the 2024 RBC Heritage, Morikawa was spotted with a new TaylorMade “Proto” 4-iron in the bag. If you recall, it’s the same model that Rory McIlroy debuted at the 2024 Valero Texas Open.

According to Morikawa, the new Proto 4-iron will replace his old P-770 hollow-bodied 4-iron.

“I used to hit my P-770 on a string, but sometimes the distance would be a little unpredictable,” Morikawa told GolfWRX.com. “This one launches a touch higher, and I feel I can predict the distance better. I know Rory replaced his P-760 with it. I’m liking it so far.”
