10 interesting photos from the PGA Championship

Published

GolfWRX is live from the PGA Championship, where a special jumbo verion Wanamaker Trophy will be awarded for this the 100th edition of the tournament (exclusive photo below).

Reportedly, Justin Thomas has told his inner circle he’s fine with failing in his title defense as he lacks the upper body strength to hoist this beauty.

*note: this is not true, and the Wanamaker is a bonus inclusion among the 10 photos, so don’t @ me saying there are 11.

Marty Jertson, Ping’s Director of Product Development and PGA Championship, qualifier is shocking the world with an all ping bag. What’s next Peter Uilhlein playing 14 Titleist clubs?!

Craig Hock’s Saber Golf putter was certainly among the most interesting flatsticks we spotted at Bellerive.

How about PGA pro Ben Kern (and Kansas State alum) with the custom purple paintfill?

Good heavens, is that a Yes! Tiffany?

Take the weight out of the bottom and add it to the top, eh Rafa?

Real players spell out their numbers.

Find a better headcover than Chris Wood’s Woody. We’ll wait.

Also: Woody may be a Stoolie…

Captain Thomas Bjorn with the Big Bertha Heavenwood!

Scotty’s PGA Championship putter cover features…a cardinal and the Gateway Arch, which is entirely appropriate. Well played.

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

on

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.
