Morgan Hoffmann honors “The King” with special Vokey wedge stampings

Published

on

The 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge is as much a tribute to Arnold “The King” Palmer — who passed away on September 25, 2016 — as a competitive PGA Tour event. All participants and attendees will surely honor the late golfing legend in their own way.

Our photos from Monday show that Morgan Hoffmann will be honoring Arnie with special stampings on his Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges.

52-degree: The “Arnold Palmer” Drink

Any mention of the Arnold Palmer drink — a concoction of Iced Tea and Lemonade — just doesn’t feel right without also mentioning the greatest sports commercial ever made.

Of all the things Arnold Palmer has done on and off the golf course, his idea to combine two respectively tasty beverages into one was possibly his most genius.

58-degree: The King’s Umbrella

The logo for “The King’s” corporation is a patented rainbow umbrella, which has more of a stealthy look on Hoffmann’s wedges.

Based on a few minutes worth of research and deductive reasoning, the “N4316F” stamping references Hoffmann’s Piper Saratoga plane, and the “N1AP” is Arnold Palmer’s Cessna Citation Jet.

    There is probably a place in every decent sized city that does laser etching, It’s pretty simple, they just create a vector file and then burn it into the metal with white, black, or a bronze type color. There’s also a fiber laser that stamps into metal deep enough to use a paint fill. I had my vokes done a few months ago.

GolfWRX Spotted: 2021 New Ping putter series at WCG Workday

Published

on

This week, the PGA Tour is at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton Florida, and we were on-site Tuesday to spy some interesting things from the grounds and on the putting green where players were prepping for the first round of the WGC – Workday Championship where the purse is 10.5 million dollars!

It’s on the putting green where we spotted a whole line of new putters from Ping, and although we don’t have all the details about the new line there is enough visual technology to draw come conclusions including:

  • Dual-durometer inserts like the current Sigma 2 ( red accent )
  • Grooved insert technology
  • Heavy perimeter weighting on the heel and toe to increase MOI – assumed to be tungsten

Don’t forget that you can check out the full image galleries in the GolfWRX Tour Equipment forum.
