Photos from the RBC Heritage

Published

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.

Equipment

The coolest wedge stampings on the PGA Tour (RSM Classic Edition)

Published

on

Wedge stampings are the eye-popping garnish on the glorious plates of golf equipment. Maybe this isn’t exactly the right metaphor, because, well, the parsley (wedge stamp) isn’t as mouth-water as the Wagyu (wedge), but you get the point…right?

Anyway, let’s look at some wedges from the RSM Classic a couple of weeks ago and see what stampings and paintfills the pros were showcasing at Sea Island.

You may not know Anthony Cordes, but surely you’ll want to add him to your shortlist of players to passionately root for after seeing this Wedding Crashers-inspired wedge.

Bo Van Pelt is a fairly cool dude. That usually happens if your name is “Bo”—the nomenclature brings with it a certain je ne sais quoi. When you’ve got initials that sound great together—BVP—you don’t need to add any unnecessary elements to the recipe.

We’ll assume Anastissia and Victoria are Brendan Steele’s daughters, and not that he has an appreciation for royalty of antiquity. Cool stamping with the pink-filled dots.

Look past David Hearn gaming 2011 TaylorMade TP MC irons to the lead tape and stamping on his SM4 (!) wedges. The Canadian knows what he likes!

Similar to the proposition raised in the Bo Van Pelt section: “Hank” is a fairly cool name. If you’re referred to as such, get it stamped on your wedge and call it a day.

Jhonattan Vegas’ Mizuno irons always feature tidy “JV” stamping, and he’s extended the treatment to his prototype Artisan wedges, which are peeking out below.

Also on the Mizuno front, Lucas Glover has his JPX 919 irons stamped with his initials (no paintfill—nastiness), but his 52-degree wedge feature the loft it is bent to (54 degrees)—a classic stamping.

Michael Gligic was the only “MG” in the RSM Classic field, so we’re assuming these are his wedges. They could, however, be stamped with someone with a real affinity for the model.

Photos from the 2020 Houston Open

GolfWRX is live from the Vivint Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course, where players who, well, like to play before majors are playing (including Mav McNealy with some vintage Nike blades in the featured image).

The likes of Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson will be making their final tune-ups before next week’s test at Augusta National.

On the subject of tuning, players who will be competing at ANGC are getting their bags dialed and those who won’t are free to experiment as they start to consider their 2021 artillery.
