Justin Rose To A Red Putter? Jason Day to a White Putter?

Published

on

Update: Justin Rose and Jason Day used the putters below in Round 1 of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. 

On Wednesday morning at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, we shot photos of Justin Rose’s bag that included a new TaylorMade TP Chaska putter. The putter is a new addition to TaylorMade’s TP Collection, and Rose appears to be testing two of the putters at Firestone: one with a black shaft, and one with a chrome shaft.

Rose’s putter seems identical to the TP Chaska putter that is currently available on TaylorMade’s with one exception; it’s red like the TaylorMade Tour Spider putter that was popularized by Jason Day and has become a runaway success on the PGA Tour.

Now about that Jason Day red putter. Photos we shot of Day’s clubs on Tuesday showed that the World No. 7 could be changing things up on the green, too. He’s using a white-painted TaylorMade Spider S, which is very similar to the Tour Spider with the exception of its paint job.

    I have never seen a comment on how quickly the white TM paint chips. Surprised. Makes the clubs seem lower in quality.

    Do these putters come with an A/C adapter or do you have to buy it separately?

GolfWRX Spotted: PXG Gen 4 ST Super Tour iron?

Published

on

It was only a few months ago that PXG unveiled its Gen4 line of irons, but there was one set missing from the line relative to the previous generation—a new “ST” or Super Tour milled blade.

The ST is a unique club in the PXG line since it doesn’t offer a hollow structure, and the only new blade currently is the 0211 ST which doesn’t offer the adjustable weighting in the back and also comes at a much lower price point.

Based on the centrally positioned weight and the thin body of the irons we spotted in Wyndham Clark’s bag at the RBC Heritage this week on the PGA Tour, it looks like some Gen4 0311 ST irons could be on their way to retail soon.

Interesting photos from Tuesday at the RBC Heritage – Part 2: Action around the course

Published

on

This week, the PGA Tour is decompressing in Hilton Head for the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town and GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to spy a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers. The field of 134 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday on the tight treeline Pete Dye designed course, for the $7.1 million purse with $1.28 million going to the winner.

In part one of this week’s “most interesting photos”, we covered putters, and for part two were covering everything else we spotted around the practice area and on the course.

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

We’ve all made that look

After hitting a drive off the first tee Tuesday during a practice round, (with his Titleist TSi3, and Patriot Editon Fujikura Ventus) Rory Sabbatini made the look saying either “kinda missed that one and it still got away with it” or “I smoked that!.”

Speaking of Rory, it looks like he has opted for a lighter-weight vessel carry bag this week, which, with a sponsor like Centinel Spine, is probably a great thing for his caddie’s back too.

Maverick is back to the Nikes

After some serious testing, of his Top Gun Proto Apex MB irons, including putting them into play during The Players, Maverick McNealy has gone back to his trusted Nike VR Blades for the RBC Heritage this week. It doesn’t mean he won’t continue testing, but for now, the VR’s are staying put.

Prototype PXG Gen4 irons spotted

It wasn’t that long ago PXG unveiled its Gen4 line of irons, but the one set that was missing compared to the previous generation was a new “ST” or Super Tour milled blade. The ST is a unique club in the PXG line since it doesn’t offer a hollow structure, and the only new blade currently is the 0211 ST, which doesn’t offer the adjustable weighting in the back and also comes at a much lower price point.

Based on the centrally positioned weight and the thin body of the irons we spotted in Wyndham Clark’s bag, it looks like some Gen4 0311 ST irons could be on their way.

Use them until the grooves are gone

Even into his 40’s, Paul Casey is playing some of the best golf of his life, and one of his biggest strengths continues to be his iron play. Paul is currently ranked 17th in strokes gained: approaching the green., and based on that stat alone I don’t think his Mizuno MP-5 irons are going anywhere soon.

Is Daniel Berger ready to move on from his 10-year old irons?

Although they are still in the bag based on this image, it looks like Daniel Berger’s 2011 TaylorMade MC irons could be on a short leash, since he was spotted with a new set out for testing.

Checking in on some cool old stuff

Consider this a regular check-in on Chris Kirk’s Callaway Big Bertha driver from 2016, and Jason Dufner’s Titleist 915F 21-degree 7-wood. Keep on keeping on!

I spy a Banksy

Based on his alignment stick cover, English golfer Tom Lewis is a Banksy fan.

Wait! Is Tom Lewis Banksy, and he just plays professional golf as a way to globetrot and cover the world in graffiti? Pretty clever if true…

Nick Watney

Like quite a few players on tour this week, it looks like Nick Watney is lightening the load for his caddie by swapping in a “tour” stand bag for the full-blown staff bag. I mean, if it was up to me as a caddie, I’d be throwing everything into a Sunday bag—it’s not like your player is gonna lose a dozen balls, right?

Bill Haas looks like the sneaky +4 at your club

Bill Haas has won over $30 million, on the PGA Tour in his career, but with the Titleist hat, RLX shirt, and his glasses, he also looks just like “Steve” from the club that never practices and somehow never shoots over 70 in the scratch events around town.

Anirban Lahiri is testing some irons

We spotted these Proto irons a little while back: ProTo Concept woods, irons & wedges – 2021, and it looks like they have made their way into Anirban Lahiri bag this week again for testing. Anirban is one of the last holdouts on tour using the Srixon Z945, and it could be that getting a replacement set isn’t in the cards based on their age.

Nelly Korda breaks down her Titleist WITB in awesome detail

Published

on

Nelly Korda has had a hot start to the year, with a win at Gainbridge LPGA to begin the year backed up by three further top-10 finishes in 2021.

Courtesy of a Titleist Instagram video, the number four player in the world broke down the Titleist clubs in her bag, what they give her as well as some cool personal details behind her wedge stampings.

Korda plays the new TSi1 driver at the top of the bag and put the driver in play at the Gainbridge to become the first player to win with the driver in the bag.

Korda is another professional to game a 7-wood (Titleist TSi2) favoring it for its high launch characteristics, while her Vokey Design SM8 ( 50-08F, 54-10S, 58-08M) wedges showcase her personality, with Lions (she’s a Leo) and Skull (“dark side”) stampings courtesy of Aaron Dill.

The 22-year-old plays the brand’s T100 irons and explained that she put the irons in the bag last year for their “accuracy and consistency”, and as with her driver, the first time Korda put the new Pro V1 ball in the bag she went on to win – highlighting its low spin characteristics.

Check out her full breakdown of the Titleist clubs in her bag here.
