Photos from the RBC Heritage

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from Hilton Head Island, S.C. for the RBC Heritage. Harbour Town Golf Links has the unenviable task of hosting the PGA Tour the week after the Masters. The par 71, 7,101-yard layout, which winds through Carolina’s Sea Pines and finishes along the Calibogue Sound, is one of the few courses that can peak the interest of its audience following the excitement of the year’s first major. The iconic Harbour Town lighthouse behind the 18th green guides players to the difficult finishing hole.

Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye’s first collaboration favors the straight hitters with its tight layout and small greens, contrary to last week’s bombers paradise at Augusta National.

The field this week features headliners Matt Kuchar, ranked No.6 in the Official World Golf Rankings, Jordan Spieth (No. 9), who’s coming off a disappointing runner-up finish at the Masters and Zach Johnson (No. 12). Also playing this week are Hall of Famers Nick Faldo, who rarely hops out of the announcer’s booth to compete, and Tom Watson.

Graeme McDowell (No. 14) returns as the defending champion. He used his low trajectory and accuracy in last year’s gusting winds to defeat Webb Simpson on the first playoff hole. Davis Love III, always a threat at Harbour Town with five wins at the event, will also be in the field hoping to capture another plaid tartan jacket.

Check out our photos from Hilton Head Island, S.C. at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Interesting photos from the Zozo Championship

Published

on

This week is the Zozo Championship at Sherwood Golf Club, and with most of the worlds top golfers including Tiger Woods playing and prepping for the November Masters, there is a lot going on around the range when it comes to gear and testing.

As a reminder, you can check out all of our photos in the GolfWRX forums.

New Fourteen irons and wedges

IMG_8704.jpeg

The irons are a throwback to a classic “channel back” style iron with mass positioned towards the top and bottom of the face to increase vertical stability of the blade while also maintaining feel.

Justin Rose with Artisan lob wedge

The little shop from Texas continues to make big waves with more wedges spotted on tour every week including in former world number 1 Justin Rose.

Xander Schauffele’s new Apex irons and testing putters on Quintic

Xander’s prototype Callaway Apex irons look a lot like the newly released 2021 X-Forged irons but with obvious Apex branding. We also can’t forget about putting, and it’s cool to see a Quintic high-speed camera system on the practice green getting players dialed in to launch conditions just like how they would for a driver.

Ricky using older generation Cobra Amp Cell Pro Irons

IMG_8580.jpeg

If there is one thing pros love, it’s a set of older irons—they’re the golf equivalent of putting on a pair of comfy broken-in jeans. For Ricky and his custom Amp Cell Pro’s with tungsten toe inserts, there must be some magic there because he has previously used multiple newer sets of irons but continues to gravitate towards these.

Hideki Maruyama testing new Bettinardi putter

Hideki isn’t someone to shy away from testing putters, and this week he was spotted testing one of the new Bettinardi putters that debuted last week in Las Vegas at Shadow Creek.

Pros are “just like us” – Justin Thomas and Mac Hughes edition

Yes, tour pros are just like us except for the fact that they are exceptional golfers, but even JT likes help in his long game and has a Titleist T300 3-iron in the bag, and when it comes to breakfast Mackenzie Hughes happens to like ketchup with his breakfast sandwich—although personally, I’m anti-ketchup when it comes to breakfast sandwiches.

Mickelson testing older X-Hot 3Deep

We’ve heard rumblings, of Champions Tour terminator Phil Mickelson testing 47.5″ drivers in the name of speed and distance, but as a way to also have a “fairway finder” it appears that he is contemplating putting his old X-Hot 3Deep in play. (Being able to identify a multi-generations old fairway wood from a distance based on its paint scheme is part of the reason we are WRX)

Gary Woodland testing Ping G425 driver

With the launch of the Ping G425 woods on tour a few weeks ago, it’s no surprise to see more players testing them in prep for the Masters, and for the fact that, they are the next evolution of the well-loved Ping G410—Gary Woodland is no exception.
