Ping signs Tyrrell Hatton to multi-year deal

Published

on

Tyrrell Hatton had a breakout year in 2016, climbing into the top 25 in the Official World Golf Rankings to earn his first trip to the Masters. His other major successes: a top-5 finish at the Open Championship, a top-10 at the PGA Championship and his first European Tour win at none other than St. Andrews, host of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The 25-year-old can now add another accomplishment to his growing resume: Ping Staffer. The Phoenix-based company has signed the Englishman to a multi-year, 11-club contract that will have him using a Ping driver and Ping putter. He’ll also wear a Ping hat and carry a Ping staff bag.

“Tyrrell has had an outstanding year and we’re delighted he’ll be representing Ping going forward,” said Ping Chairman and CEO John A. Solheim. “We’ve watched him very closely since he joined the European Tour two years ago, and we’ve been impressed with every aspect of his game.”

For his victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, Hatton was using a Ping G driver (9.5 degrees), as well as Ping i irons (3-PW) and a Ping Vault Oslo putter.

      This is the reason Fitzpatrick is not a PING player, yet.

Adidas X Vice Golf launch The Vice Golf Shoe by Adidas

Published

on

Adidas has teamed up with Vice Golf to launch the new Vice Golf Shoe inspired from off the course which includes a dozen Vice Pro Drip Lime x Adidas golf balls.

The Vice Golf Shoe from Adidas contains ultraboost and a signature lime-green colorway to accent the designs for life both on and off the golf course. The shoe features a camouflage pattern in gray and white on the top of the shoe, while a brand-new drip pattern decorates the boost material at the bottom.

The shoe features branding “discoverables”, such as a subtle Vice logo on the tongue of the shoe while a collab logo is celebrated within. The company’s motto “Embrace Your Vice” runs down the spine of the heel, while another Vice logo lives underneath the 3-stripe caging on the inside of the foot.

If golfers want a brighter color pop, the alternate neon lime laces give that option.

“Based in Bavaria like Adidas, we have always looked up to this global ambassador and brand that has made big moves in both the golf and footwear in recent years. It is a great honor to finally present the result of 22 months of work with tears of happiness when the final pair of shoes arrived” – Vice Golf founder and CEO Ingo Duellmann

In addition to the shoe, the packaging of the Vice Golf Shoe by Adidas is made to look, feel and act exactly like their signature golf ball packages. 

The bottom of the box is wrapped in a neon lime camouflage pattern, and the top cover features the exact, embossed Vice logo colored in neon lime drip pattern as seen and felt on the brand’s golf ball packaging. The connection continues after lifting the lid and discovering an actual box of Vice Pro Drip Lime golf balls, with Adidas logos, sitting in its own compartment.

The Vice Golf Shoe from Adidas (plus one dozen Vice Pro Drip Lime X Adidas golf balls) costs $219.95 and is available to purchase from December 7, 2020, 11 AM EST at ViceGolf.com.

Best blade for 2020/2021 – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best blade irons from the new releases. WRXer ‘hypergolf’ asks for opinions on what blade iron has stood out from the rest this year and our members have been having their say in our forums.

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.

  • Chuck905: “Taylormade P7MB surprisingly stands out to me. Sharp looks and solid feel. Performance is consistent.”
  • Golfingfanatic: “Miura Giken TB-Zero.”
  • bladehunter: “Domestic It’s blueprint. And it’s not close. Mp20 has very smallish short irons. Similar to 6 iron shape. Which are odd. You need taller faces, in my opinion, for scoring clubs. My least favorite Mizuno MB in a while. Mp5 and mp68 being the best recent ones. But I’d second the TB-zero above for all markets.”
  • Nard_S: “High end, like the TB Zero. Average pricing, really like the P7. The TB offers a bunch of custom options that go beyond stamping and lie/loft, and they are Miura’s, which is never a bad thing. The P7 has a clean, unique look, love the 3D diamond muscle, minimal offset and stance. I could buy those tomorrow; I could buy the TB for a “I’m special” occasion which perhaps is never, lol.”
  • The_Champ: “Ping blueprint… and it’s not even close.”
