10 interesting photos from Monday at the Valspar Championship

Published

We’re easing into this week at the Copperhead Course with a few galleries for your viewing pleasure. But if the very mention of the Snake Pit–Innisbrook’s fearsome closing stretch–has you frightened away from browsing the galleries in full, we’ve got you covered.

Here are 10 interesting photos from Monday at the Valspar Championship.

Kevin Na undoubtedly holds the PGA Tour record for having his last name stamped on a wedge the most times. And with only two letters in said last name, it’s doubtful anyone can top him. Byeong Hun An, perhaps?

Step right up and pick the putting aid of your choice! EyeLine, Sweet Spot, we’ve got ’em all! And if you don’t like those, how about this handy suitcase?

A good announcer knows when to go silent and let the action on the playing field speak for itself. We’ll apply the same principal to the written word here.

Whee Kim riffs on the traditional Tiger Woods-inspired stamping with a Scotty Dog and site line configuration. Well played.

Either Whee Kim is doing a poor job of obscuring the manufacturer of his irons or he’s trying to add a little weight in the center of the club head (we’ll go with the latter).

Gotta respect the paint job on the new Graphite Design’s new MAD shafts.

Anyone missing a can of paint? (Yes, humorless among you, I know that’s the Valspar’s unique tee marker)

When is doubt, first initial + last initial + wedge loft = a great wedge stamping.

Inspired by Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Kevin Na appears to have emoji-d himself. Is this a permanent addition?

No giant Rolex clocks here. This is Shinola country! D-Town, baby!

GolfWRX is live at The 2020 American Express as the tour returns to the mainland United States following its Hawaii Swing.

Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Patrick Cantlay, and of course the tournament’s host, Phil Mickelson, will all tee it up in La Quinta, California, this week.

We have an abundance of special galleries as new gear floods the tour as players return to the continental U.S. for the first time in 2021, as well as general galleries for your perusal.

Equipment

The coolest wedge stampings on the PGA Tour (RSM Classic Edition)

Published

on

Wedge stampings are the eye-popping garnish on the glorious plates of golf equipment. Maybe this isn’t exactly the right metaphor, because, well, the parsley (wedge stamp) isn’t as mouth-water as the Wagyu (wedge), but you get the point…right?

Anyway, let’s look at some wedges from the RSM Classic a couple of weeks ago and see what stampings and paintfills the pros were showcasing at Sea Island.

You may not know Anthony Cordes, but surely you’ll want to add him to your shortlist of players to passionately root for after seeing this Wedding Crashers-inspired wedge.

Bo Van Pelt is a fairly cool dude. That usually happens if your name is “Bo”—the nomenclature brings with it a certain je ne sais quoi. When you’ve got initials that sound great together—BVP—you don’t need to add any unnecessary elements to the recipe.

We’ll assume Anastissia and Victoria are Brendan Steele’s daughters, and not that he has an appreciation for royalty of antiquity. Cool stamping with the pink-filled dots.

Look past David Hearn gaming 2011 TaylorMade TP MC irons to the lead tape and stamping on his SM4 (!) wedges. The Canadian knows what he likes!

Similar to the proposition raised in the Bo Van Pelt section: “Hank” is a fairly cool name. If you’re referred to as such, get it stamped on your wedge and call it a day.

Jhonattan Vegas’ Mizuno irons always feature tidy “JV” stamping, and he’s extended the treatment to his prototype Artisan wedges, which are peeking out below.

Also on the Mizuno front, Lucas Glover has his JPX 919 irons stamped with his initials (no paintfill—nastiness), but his 52-degree wedge feature the loft it is bent to (54 degrees)—a classic stamping.

Michael Gligic was the only “MG” in the RSM Classic field, so we’re assuming these are his wedges. They could, however, be stamped with someone with a real affinity for the model.
