An awesome inside look at Arnold Palmer’s legendary workshop

Published

on

Callaway’s Chad Coleman, A.J. Voelpel and company visited golf Shangri-La: Arnold Palmer’s Latrobe home and warehouse.

Not surprisingly, they came away with some fantastic content after touring Mr. Palmer’s office, workshop and gigantic storage facility with the King’s long-serving personal assistant, Doc Griffin.

Palmer’s equipment sponsor and partner for the better part of two decades, the Carlsbad-based company, got the grand tour of the King’s castle. They put together a ReadyMag that you absolutely have to check out.

    Awesome view inside one of the most special places in golf. They’ll have to turn it into a museum at some point. I saw that he also kept every letter ever written to him too. Amazing ambassador for golf.

Modern Classics (Ep. 4): Testing a TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 3-wood

Published

on

GolfWRX recently launched a new 8-part video series, called “The Modern Classics,” in partnership with 2nd Swing Golf. Throughout this video series, GolfWRX’s Head of Tour Content, Andrew Tursky, tests out 8 legendary used golf clubs that are still being played on Tour today. How do the older, less expensive products compare to modern technologies?

In the first three episodes, Tursky tested out TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred MC 2011 irons, Adams Idea Pro hybrids from 2006, and a TaylorMade Rocketballz RBZ fairway wood.

For episode 4, we highlight the TaylorMade Burner SuperFast fairway woods, which were released to the public in 2010. Although they’re more than a decade old, we spotted one in Richard Bland’s 2022 WITB.

The Burner SuperFast fairway woods are currently available for $76.99 on 2nd Swing’s website.

Check out the video at the top of the page for more on the product, design, and how it stands up in testing against a modern 3-wood.

Best wedge for bad bunker players? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedges for poor bunker players. WRXer ‘gdb99’ kicks off the thread saying “I’m not good out of sand. I used to be, 35 years ago. I blade shots over the green. It’s all technique, and I need a lot of practice. I know that,” and reaches out to our members who have been sharing what they feel are the wedges that can help him the most.

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.

  • hammergolf: “Ping Eye2 is the best bunker club ever. If you’re blading it you’re not steep enough. Open the face and hit down on the sand. The bounce will stop it from digging too much.”
  • flubberlange: “Try a Vokey 60* in a K grind.”
  • Fwitz11: “I also struggle with the bunker and have found that an open 60 and hitting just behind the ball is the easiest out I have used. Has helped me a ton with not blading it over the green.”
  • lazyjc4: “I’ve hit the best bunker shots of my life with PM Grind wedges.  I look like I know what I’m doing almost all of the time.”
