Special edition staff bags, putter covers, shoes, Big Cat in multiple hats, more, Monday at the PGA Championship

Published

on

We have 18 galleries of photos from a decidedly dreary Monday at Bethpage Black. But the dampness doesn’t dampen our enthusiasm for the tournament ahead nor for cool gear in general. Calling the PGA Championship “the second major of the year” still feel odd on the tongue, but the former “glory’s last shot” isn’t lacking for drool-worthy equipment aplenty thus far in its new calendar spot.

Let’s take a look at a few of the many notable photos from Monday’s action (beginning with the featured image: a rare sight: the Big Cat in a winter hat — over a baseball cap.

And while not special to the PGA Championship, Ping’s “patent” putter cover is a thing of beauty

Here’s a look at Callaway’s staff bag for the proceedings on Long Island, clearly inspired by the adornments of many of the walls in the other boroughs…

No mallet and stamp? No problem!

Bettinardi’s PGA Championship putter cover is inspired by the MTA. Bonus points for anybody who knows which of the letters in “Bettinardi” are not actual train lines…

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.
