10 interesting photos from Tuesday at the Valspar Championship

Published

on

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 Tuesday at the Valspar Championship.

Ross Fisher with multi-colored FISH stamped on his 54-degree. This may be the summit of wedge stamping.

Cam Smith with a sweet design on the back of his Scotty Cameron.

Speaking of Scotty Cameron: “King of Cash” putter covers.

In addition to Billy Horschel’s bag, we also have jeans on the driving range. First the blade collars, now denim. What’s next? Shorts? The horror!

A Byron Morgan putter that scraps stamping for milling. No logos needed!

Defending champ Adam Hadwin with the 2013 Callaway X Hot hybrid. $11.70 resale value, according to the PGA Value Guide.

You might think this is a demo bag of TaylorMade Spider putters. It is, in fact, a cup holder.

Cam Smith’s 60-degree honors the Brisbane Broncos.

A leaning Piretti and two dozen fresh Pro V1s; beautiful tour range still life.

Ping Anser alert; this one in Stephen Jaeger’s bag.

      Does this guy fact check anything? Or is he too busy coming up with misleading clickbait headlines and writing inanely about inane social media stuff?

‘Angry Golfers’ – Pro golfers visit anger management in hilarious Euro tour video

Published

on

The European Tour has produced many memorable pieces of content over the past couple of years – but they have just outdone themselves with their latest video: ‘Angry Golfers’.

Filmed in Abu Dhabi, the video stars Tommy Fleetwood who hosts a group therapy session for some golfers looking to lose their temper on the course: Matt Wallace, Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, Eddie Pepperell, and of course, Tyrrell Hatton.

Check out the funny video below.

Here’s what some of our members have been saying about the video in our forums:

  • Matty01984: “More amazing work from the European Tour social media team!”
  • Frankensteins Monster: “Bloody brilliant.”
  • gators78: “Whatever this strategic partnership/alliance/cuddle buddy deal is between the PGA Tour and the Euro Tour, the PGAT should launch their entire social media staff and use the Euro Tours. Their stuff is just miles better.”

We can only hope we don’t have too long to wait for more great stuff from the Euro Tour content committee!

Tiger’s alarming decrease in clubhead speed before his 5th back surgery

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ close friend Notah Begay talked to Golf Channel this week and shared some insightful information on the pain Tiger felt prior to his latest back surgery and just how much the issue was hurting his performance.

Per Begay, one of the first things Tiger was quick to notice at the PNC Championship back in December was the alarming rate in which his clubhead speed had dropped.

Woods had a PGA Tour-best clubhead speed of 129.2 mph in March 2018, but last month that clubhead speed had sunk to 113mph due to the pain he was feeling.

“I had a chance to visit with him and catch up over at the PNC Championship, but one of the things he did bring up was that he noticed that his clubhead speed was creeping down around 113 (mph), and, I’ve known this guy since he was 9 years old, and he might have been over 113 back then. I don’t think he’s ever crept this low.”  

The analyst also revealed that Woods had “some concern” about having a 5th back surgery, and described the “radiating” pain which forced Tiger to go under the knife yet again:

“I talked to him just recently, within the last hour, and he mentioned that there was radiating pain back down the back part of his leg. Anybody that’s ever had disc problems like myself can realize and understand that’s just a very uncomfortable place to be in. 

Any way you can alleviate the pain, in this particular case, through this procedure, is the way to go, especially if you want to try and pursue elite-level performance.”

For his comeback, Begay told viewers that Woods is back hitting balls already and will have Augusta in mind for his return. As for a blueprint for Tiger to add to his 82 PGA Tour wins, Begay believes hot putting weeks will be key.

“He’s fine. I mean, I literally 15 minutes ago exchanged texts with him, and he was hitting golf balls. It’s not like he’s laying in the bed watching reruns of Friends. He’s gotten the pain alleviated. I promise he wasn’t trying to rip his driver out there, but he’s going to let it come back, he’s going to let it heal and we all know that he’s got the event in April circled.

There’s a lot of torque, a lot of stress, and I think he’s just going to have to play a little bit more of a consistent type of tee-to-green game and then just wait for when the putter starts to warm up like we know it can.”
