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.

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.

It is the same color scheme as the Taylormade Staff Bags, pictures show it a little more blue. Looking for $175 OBRO.”

‘Did one length irons ruin my game?’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

single length irons

In our forums, our members have been reacting to a post from WRXer ‘Alj92’, who is wondering whether switching to one length irons has ruined his game. Alj92 says:

“I played one length irons (King F9) all last season – about 80 rounds. In 20 years of golf I’ve never hit it better, even when I played well as a kid. 

Because I could not find left handed wedges (anything above 48*) or a 4/5i (anything less than 23*), I sold them at the end of last season. 

This year I switched to ping g425’s. Complete confidence, consistency and launch over the 6-7-8. Smash them. But I am struggling immensely with the 4/5 and 9-LW. Long irons thin weak slices, short irons strong pulls. Nowhere close with alignment. 

Did I kill my swing with the one length irons last season? Is that…possible, or does it make sense? Or is this just an expensive validation that I am a prime candidate for one length?”

Our members have been giving their take on the post 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.

  • lefthack: “Maybe just use traditional wedges with one length irons?”
  • GatorNate11: “If I had to guess, your brain/body have probably just adjusted to that length. Give it some time, maybe get a couple of lessons in, and I’m sure you’ll find it again. Unless you made some sort of wild change in your swing with or without realizing it, it’s probably just a feel/visual thing tbh.”
  • Fairway14: “Buy yourself a set of one length irons and wedges.”
