10 interesting photos from the Masters: Tiger Woods switches driver shafts

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from the 2018 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club!

We have six glorious galleries of photos from golf’s celestial realm for you this Monday, as well as a look at Odyssey’s “Season Opener” putter cover and some shots of Tiger Woods teeing off with Justin Thomas and Fred Couples for his Monday practice round.

Many wondered what shaft Tiger would arrive at Augusta National with after struggling with the big stick early this year. Wonder no more: It looks like TW is gaming a Mitsubishi Tensei Pro Orange (further details to follow tomorrow).

“Only time I’ve ever heard a loud ovation was for Arnie when he played with his grandson at Quail Hollow,” our Tour Photographer said of Woods arrival on the tee for his practice round.

Speaking of the King, it’s nice to see Callaway continuing to honor Arnold Palmer with its Masters…ahem, “Season Opener” putter cover.

Jose Maria Olazabal: Does the man ever not look good?

We may not see a more sophisticated piece of gear this week than this gentleman’s baby-wearing apparatus.

Rory McIlroy’s custom Nikes

Continuing the footwear theme: Pat Perez’ Jordans

Vijay Singh doesn’t need any stinkin’ bag sponsors!

Wesley Bryan’s belt may represent the first time Taco Bell has ever been inside the gates of Augusta National.

Bubba Watson doing the “high-tops and headphones” putting drill.

Here’s a position you probably don’t get in on the downswing.

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.

Photos from the 2020 Houston Open

Published

GolfWRX is live from the Vivint Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course, where players who, well, like to play before majors are playing (including Mav McNealy with some vintage Nike blades in the featured image).

The likes of Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson will be making their final tune-ups before next week’s test at Augusta National.

On the subject of tuning, players who will be competing at ANGC are getting their bags dialed and those who won’t are free to experiment as they start to consider their 2021 artillery.
