2014 Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters Photos

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters at the Southern Highlands Golf Club in Las Vegas, Nev. The UNLV Rebels host a field of 15 teams at the 7510-yard par-72 course from Friday-to-Sunday for the 54-hole event. The tournament includes seven of the top-10 ranked teams in college golf, making it one of the strongest fields in college golf.

Alabama, ranked No. 1 by Golfweek,  comes to Las Vegas as the favorite with the No. 1 ranked individual golfer in the NCAA, senior Trey Mullinax. They were handed their first loss in 11-events at the SMU Querencia Cabo Collegiate by just one stroke to Houston on March 4.

Defending champion Patrick Rodgers, a junior from Stanford, makes his return this week as the No. 11-ranked college golfer according to Golfweek. At last year’s Collegeiate Masters, Rodgers won in a playoff over former California graduate Michael Kim, New Mexico graduate James Erckenbeck and Alabama’s Cory Whitsett.

Nine of the top 10 ranked individuals are in the field this weekend, making a title defense difficult for Rodgers.

Cal (No. 4) will look to defend their team title at the event against the 15-team field that includes Alabama (No. 1), Georgia Tech (No. 2), Oklahoma State (No. 3), Georgia (No. 5), Texas A&M (No. 7), Stanford (No. 9), Oklahoma (No. 14), Texas (No. 16), New Mexico (No. 18), UCLA (No. 19), Arizona State (No. 29), UNLV (No. 33), TCU (No. 42), Texas Tech (No. 49).

    Mostly Nike, Ping and Titleist in the bags there with a sprinkling of the others. Do a majority of these guys pick and pay for their own gear? If they do, kind of tells you who makes the best clubs instead of relying on the marketing dollar to give them the highest equipment counts.

      Nice first episode. I like the idea and what you guys are trynig to do. Hopefully local athletes will see that this could benefit them not only from learning from you guys but just getting the exposure. That could be huge.I thought the first episode was good. Like I told Adam, I appreciate the brutal honesty. Some people can’t take it but its what makes you a better person or athlete. Anything I can do to help, just say the word.

      ()We also have a eGroup mailing list once you have ddeceid to join the club please let me know if you would like to join that group it’s mainly used for pool announcements (ie bank holidays when the pool is closed) organising galas, lost property, and very importantly social events!BestCarolinePS If you come to swim on a Thursday night please think twice about bringing a bicycle there has been a lot of bike theft from outside the pool from local youths! If you do, make sure you bring two locks with you.

Best looking pear-shaped 3 wood of all time? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing pear-shaped 3 woods. WRXer ‘GolferDude54’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“I was interested in knowing what 3 wood in the present and past do you guys think has had the best looking profile at address and is pear-shaped to boot, i.e. Titleist 906F2. Like you look down at address, and it just oozes of being aesthetically pleasing to your eye. You can even post more than one 3-wood and a list as well if you are torn between this and that.”

And our members have been sharing their best picks in our forum.

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.

  • Dill Pickelson: “I owned the 906f2 and agree it was a perfect looking 3 wood at address. I currently play the rogue st ls 3 wood and also think it looks great at address. This is exactly how I want a 3 wood to look, no triangular 3 woods, no closed face or slight offsets. I also liked the Ping i20 3 wood. It sat very nicely behind the ball.”
  • hammergolf: “Hard to beat the Titleist PT. Had one in the bag for almost a decade.”
  • Boogs2: “I’ve always liked the Nike T60. Still have one with the steel shaft. Loved how deep-faced it was.”
  • puresurfr: “Titleist 970, love the shape, and it was like a sledgehammer when hit on the screws. Honorable mention for Nike T60.”

Scotty Cameron unveils new Special Select Jet Set putters

Published

on

Scotty Cameron has today introduced the new range of Special Select Jet Set putters.

The limited release features a four-model collection designed for the player looking for a particular design aesthetic in a high-performance configuration with attention to shape, color palette and finish.

Precision milled in the United States from a block of 303 stainless steel, each new Limited Release Special Select Jet Set putter incorporates Scotty’s performance balanced weighting technology featuring customizable sole weights, as well as purpose-built aluminum sole plates designed to optimize weight distribution in the wider profile of the Plus models.

Speaking on the new range, Scotty Cameron said:

“A lot of golfers want to game the same putters the pros play. Our new Special Select Jet Set putters offer a taste of that experience with a few extras that put them in a category of their own. The Tour Black finish is something a lot of people really like, so when I can, I make putters using it combined with dark, smoky accents. The overall tone-on-tone look is inspired by custom car builders, and that’s where the Jet Set name comes from. We’ve offered this concept in years past. This is the next version of Jet Set. Specifically, the ‘Plus’ models that are in between the width of a Newport 2 and a Squareback 2. I developed this “tweener” size working with a few Tour players who wanted something in between the width of a traditional blade and our Squareback flange width. The Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus and Newport 2 Plus offer those desired sizes and happen to be the first we’ve created for everyone. Limited releases like these new Special Select Jet Set models are for those who want a high-performance putter, but also that little extra.”

In addition, the Special Select Jet Set Newport, Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus, Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 and Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 Plus feature custom graphics, a Tour Black finish with a dark, tonal color scheme, a specialized Pistolini Plus grip, shaft band and headcover.

Displaying the evolution of Scotty’s research in bringing the benefits of higher MOI to blade putter shapes, the line’s “Plus” models introduce slightly wider profiles than standard face-to-flange blade dimensions in design to offer maximum performance from a blade putter.

Special Select Jet Set Newport

“A souped-up version of Scotty’s classic heel-and-toe weighted blade, the Special Select Jet Set Newport includes a plumbing neck, the model’s distinctive rounded features and a unique sight line milled on the topline. Precision milled from 303 stainless steel, this limited release putter has a solid face, misted Tour Black finish, adjustable performance balanced raw tungsten sole weighting and includes the line’s new textured Pistolini Plus grip and Jet Set headcover.”

Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus

“Crafted slightly wider when measured from face to flange, the Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus offers a new size in high-performance blade putter design. Relying on proven multi-material design methodology, Scotty accommodated the fuller profile by distributing weight to the perimeter and incorporating a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum sole plate, anodized black and engraved with the line’s Jet Set graphics. A milled flange sight line provides clean alignment, while customizable stainless steel sole weights provide balance. A new, textured Pistolini Plus grip, Jet Set shaft band and specialized headcover complete the package.”

Special Select Jet Set Newport 2

“Designed with the proven shape, plumbing neck and tri-sole of a modern Newport 2, the Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 is milled from 303 stainless steel with customizable tungsten sole weights, a Tour Black finish and the line’s Jet Set graphics package, including a specialty shaft band, headcover and textured Pistolini Plus grip. Incorporating a subtle design characteristic—and inspired by the putters he makes for touring professionals—Scotty included a milled sight line on the topline rather than a standard flange line. A limited number of left-handed Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 models were also created.”

Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 Plus

“Splitting the difference in flange width between a Special Select Newport 2 and Squareback 2, the Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 Plus offers a Tour-inspired shape that introduces the next profile in high-performance blade design. Milled from 303 stainless steel with a solid face, the Newport 2 Plus has a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum sole plate, anodized black and engraved with the line’s Jet Set graphics. A milled flange sight line provides clean alignment, while customizable stainless steel sole weights provide balance. The putter includes the line’s new, textured Pistolini Plus grip, Jet Set shaft band and specialized headcover.”

The limited release Special Select Jet Set putters will be available worldwide on Aug. 19, 2022, at Titleist authorized golf shops, and are priced at $650 each.
