      “I’ve never seen anyone that far right, he went in the lake two holes over.”- Johnny Miller after JB Holmes hit his drive 100 yards right on 14….welcome to the world of a Taylor Made driver. Rory just made a huge mistake.

      I don’t know about that – it was the player, not the tool at fault – Si Woo Kim seemed quite happy with his TMs – His M1 Driver was pretty good on Sunday. He could even hit a green via the palm tree on Saturday!
      I game Callaway’s GBB – they go quite nicely! Maybe Rory should have stuck with his GBB Epic Sub-Zero.

    So can anyone confirm the 14 wrenches that were in play today at The Players?

    Here is my guess for his bag:

    M2 8.25- KK 70X
    M2 15- CK Pro White 80TX
    UDI 16- HZRDUS 105X
    Rors Proto’s- PX 7.0
    Milled Grind (48, 52, 56, 60)- PX 6.5
    Not sue on putter these days!!!

    I absolutely love his PROTO RORS musclebacks– they are SICK!! I also really like the finish on those wedges– which I think is tour only as well.

    AWESOME SET!

    Well actually the club heads make a huge difference in the set up of the golf club. If a club head doesn’t look good to a tour player he won’t hit it… I don’t care what shaft is in the head.
    Back when DL lll switched to Titelist the company spent upwards of $200k to get his club heads to look the way they needed to fit Davis’ eye. When Tiger woods switched from his Mizuno MP-29 back in the day to Titelist they had to manufacture iron heads to fit his eye. And those Titleist heads were almost a dead ringer to the MP-29 blades with titelist stamped on the back. Club heads are everything to a players eye and feel.

      Why are you peddling such falsity, fake news about Titleist spending $200k simply for cosmetic appearance to DLIII’s eye? As for Mizuno and TW, that’s just horsefeathers!
      Your “eye” and “feel” comments are misleading if not outright false because those factors only impact on recreational hackers who only look at their clubs and only feel mis-hits.
      You can’t speak on behalf of tour players and you are only making up fake stories.

    That putter shaft has a ding in it at the El Ho Sel – so does that make it illegal?

    look at those cavity backs…play a real iron

    Did Rors sign with TM? I though he was still an equipment free agent?

      It’s beneficial to have support staff at tourney’s when your equipment needs adjusting.

    What difference does if make if TaylorMade release s 125 clubs, or if the club golfers want or need them. It isn’t a fluke that many tour pros are switching to TM clubs. You see the guys who are winning, Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia. You guys banging on TM sound like sour grapes. people will buy what they want, and they certainly aren’t up to taking advice from the internet tour!

    Still the the ugliest irons on the market…

    My son was on Tour for years on the Tour Van and TM has in the past made special clubs for players, like one of a kind that they usually mill out of a block of steel. I remember they made a one of set for Mike Weir that was actually 3 sets. I too am lefty and he had an extra set in the Van that disappeared one day, and no, not to me. Anyway it never make it to production as the Rory Irons probably won’t. It is getting ridiculous though what they will do. I think a one of set costs then about 30K to make.

    If them Protos don’t perform as designed, it’ll be sad. Lets see what kind of flight he gets out of these irons with the bored out mid section. I mean, what would that shaved out section do to the balance of the head?

    I feel like a 13.5 degree 3 wood is a wasted club for Rory. It would be pointless unless of the tee. Dig that UDI #1 though.

  18. Sydney

    Irons look amazing. How long does it take to make them? Or does TM just place an order to a standard forging house in Japan that Rory was already familiar with?

    You would think that Tiger and Rory now come as a pack of two. You cannot sign them up seperately. This is a big hit to Callaway and somehow the Epic line is loosing the charm since more and more players not hitting those drivers anymore. Wonder how much Tiger invested in TM and maybe Rory is joining to bail him out or both will take over TM. I guess Tiger will need to suck it up if Rory gets his signature clubs (irons and maybe wedges in the future).

    I see Mizuno MP18 with a cylindrical bore instead of line. Same darned iron.

    Where is TM getting the money to pay all these guys?

      Four sets of irons a season, half a dozen drivers and fairways and a complete range of new putters not to mention the annual ‘new improved’ ball launch. TM make good clubs but in terms of performance they’ve gone as far as they can – it’s all about aesthetics now and the gullibility of the club golfers who just have to have the latest of everything.

    Looks like Tiger told him to come play his TM irons since he won’t be anytime soon

      May 9, 2017 at 2:28 pm

      HAHAHAHAHA I get it!!! Cause Tiger’s injured again and can’t play! HAHAHAHA

GolfWRX Spotted: New PXG Gen4 drivers and 2021 putters

Published

on

Some people like to say “the West Coast is the best coast,” and as far as kicking off the PGA Tour season with events and new equipment, it’s hard to argue.

At the American Express last week won by Si Woo Kim, we got our first in-hand look at the Gen4 drivers from PXG which were spotted only a few weeks ago on the conforming equipment list – GolfWRX Spotted: PXG Gen4 drivers on conforming list

As per our initial reports, the PXG Gen4 driver line looks to include a number of models to cater to varying player types and appears to be using some sort of high strength Aluminum Vapor (AV) carbon composite to save mass from the crown.

Although we don’t have official confirmation of the technology built into the crown, the Aluminium Vapor would be the logical explanation based on the two-tone look and how the material shares the visual of the Mitsubishi Chemical AV Raw golf shafts.

We also spotted some updated putter models including the below Brandon which has newly positioned tungsten weights at the extreme rear to further enhance MOI and forgiveness compared to the current model which only features much smaller weights.

For more pictures and too see what others are saying about the spotted PXG Gen4 drivers and putters, check out the GolfWRX forums: PXG Gen 4 prototype drivers – new putters

Bettinardi Golf signs two-time European Tour winner Sam Horsfield

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today announced the signing of two-time European Tour champion Sam Horsfield.

For 2020, Horsfield will continue using his BBZero putter and will become the first-ever player to have a Bettinardi staff bag on Tour.

The BBZero flat-stick has served Horsfield well, with the Englishman finishing 8th in putts per GIR last season on the European Tour. Speaking on joining Bettinardi’s tour staff, the 24-year-old said

“I want to be the best golfer I can be, and feeling comfortable in my equipment is crucial in achieving this. Bettinardi brings me the confidence in their innovation and attention to detail that I am looking for, especially when it comes to putting and how important feel is.

Being affiliated with them for so long, it’s really special for me to be officially a Tour staffer now.”

Horsfield used the company’s DASS (Double Aged Stainless Steel) BBZero Tour Dept. putter for both of his Euro Tour wins in 2020, and will now join a growing tour staff which includes Jason Kokrak, Matt Kuchar, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Fred Couples.

 

The Englishman’s history with Bettinardi goes back to when he was 10-years-old when he contacted Robert Bettinardi while visiting the PGA Show in Orlando where he picked up a Bettinardi putter to start his golf career.

Speaking on making Horsfield the newest addition to its tour staff, founder Robert Bettinardi said

“I’m very excited to have Sam Horsfield join our tour staff. It all comes full circle for us after meeting him and his father when he was 10, to keeping in touch with my son Sam and myself all these years, through college and, now, winning on the European Tour twice on his way to becoming a star. We believe Sam will do big things and win a Major trusting a Bettinardi putter like he has for over a decade.”

To find out the story of Sam Horsfield and his journey with Bettinardi Golf, check out the video below.
