WATCH: Why a 65-degree wedge is key to backyard golf

Published

on

Making a viral trick shot video surely takes time, effort, persistence and slick editing. This video has very little of any, which is what makes it so great.

Arron Olberhoser’s xE1 wedge commercial-esque video doesn’t pretend to be a one-take wonder, but it’s a great shot and a priceless reaction.

Where did the first shot end up?

If you’re interested in purchasing an xE1 wedge, check them out here. As Arron, an xE1 wedge pitchman (with the emphasis on pitch, I suppose) points out in response to his video, the wedges are available in 65, 59 and 55-degree options.

    Is he coming back to the tour or is he still injured?

    I can open my 58 deg lob and accomplish the same thing. Even off tight lies. Unlike the people in the commercial who “don’t” follow thru on their wedge shots around the green, or in the bunker one doesn’t need a wedge with about an inch and a half flange built in. Funny thing is though when these players use that wedge(whatever it’s name) and make great shots guess what they do? “They Follow Thru” with their swing.

      Here I thought he was going to hit the shot over the pool fence to his left. I can do that shot with my 58 easy.

    I am more interested in his backyard then the wedge.

    They had this wedge before in the 1990s. Alien wedge

    I’m spoiled by televised golf. This one and the Fowler ace, shot with phone, do nothing for me because I can’t see the ball go in the hole.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons which he has in the bag at this week’s CJ Cup. WRXers have been commenting on the switch and the clubs themselves in our forums.

For lots more photos, check out the full thread here.

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.

  • btyh: “Holy offset.”
  • Glf_LU: “These are interesting. Not going to make a rush to judgement until I see them in person. It does look like a little more offset than I would expect to see in this model.”
  • bcflyguy1: “Kisner is not one to make a lot of equipment changes (see the GBB driver he’s still using), so if these do have staying power in his bag that will be interesting to see. I have to wonder if there’s something different about his set, because like others have mentioned there appears to be more offset on his than I recall seeing in the samples I’ve had in hand.”

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

Published

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.
