Tiger Woods spotted testing new “TaylorMade GAPR LO” driving iron at Carnoustie

Published

on

Ahead of the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie, Tiger Woods was spotted by social media testing a “TaylorMade GAPR LO” driving iron.

The GAPR LO has been on our radar here at GolfWRX with photos recently popping up on our forums; our Two Guys Talking Golf podcast investigated the photos extensively. Follow the links above to learn more about the iron.

Below are the photos from social media that suggest Tiger is testing the TaylorMade GAPR iron.

Based on the photo above, it appears Tiger is going with a Mitsubishi Tensei Orange shaft, at least in his early-week testing. We’ll follow this closely as the week continues.

Do you think Tiger will use the new iron during competition at the Open Championship?

    Will it be parallel or taper tip? Did they shave that shaft down for TW or did they make a taper tip version specifically for him?

Drake teams up with Nike for new golf apparel collection: Nocta Golf

Published

on

Canadian rapper Drake has unveiled, alongside Nike, his first-ever golf collection – Nocta Golf – which has already made its debut on the PGA Tour.

The Nocta Golf collection features anoraks, logo crewnecks, and Dri-Fit polos in black, white, gray, and hunter green, with Brooks Koepka showcasing a mock-neck from the line earlier this month.

The collection doubles up as streetwear as well as apparel for the course, and Drake announced it on his Instagram this week, where he paid tribute to the inspiration for the line, his uncle Stephen Sher.

“A collection dedicated to one of my idols. A man who took me under his wing and showed me much of what life had to offer and even more so what your own life can become when you are dedicated and loyal. My grandmother Evelyn Sher has a resting place close to the King Valley Golf Club and our drives and visits to that course hold some of my most valuable life lessons and will forever be cherished.” – Drake

The Drake Nike Nocta golf collection is available now at Nocta.com, with prices ranging from $34 to $500.

Best shallow/low to the ground hybrid – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking shallow hybrids. WRXer ‘Bunta’ is on the hunt for a low to the ground hybrid and is open to new or older options, and our members have been sharing their picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • A-A-Roncc: “I think shallow faced hybrids and fairway woods is synonymous with Ping. Not sure what other modern hybrids would be significantly shallow compared to others though… As far as older models go, Tight Lies commercials come to mind.”
  • SwingMan: “Ping G425, and don’t worry… hopefully. Or Tour Edge Exotic. The Ping, though, is very consistent.”
  • PanchiCab: “As you said before, any ping would be great as they are designed with shallow faces, I recommend you to try also Titleist tsi2/ts2/h1 and TaylorMade m2/4/6/sim max, but take care of the shaft, most come stock with high launch offerings that have soft tips and that can end up in ‘fore left’.”
