Forum Thread of the Day: “What clubs in your bag are SAFE?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Millhill88 who like most WRXers, loves to tinker with his bag set-up. However, Millhill88 does have some clubs in his bag that he won’t be taking out before the end of the year, and he asks fellow members which clubs are currently safe and won’t be removed from their bags any time soon.

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

  • sbjinx: “Spider X. I’m putting so well with this thing I stopped checking the putter forum lol”
  • eddiebigeddie: “I have several that have been safe for some time. My putter Odyssey Metal X Milled Versa #9Ht has been my club since it came out. My F6 Baffler has been automatic since it came out too when I pull the club I know exactly what’s about to happen. And so far my F9 I got this year has been the driver for me. Finally not struggling to get off the tee.”
  • philly2kuk: “Pretty much all of them currently. Sure I’m off to try a Scotty today, but I’ve putted lights out with my anser, my vokeys are safe, driver is safe, hybrid is 14 years old yet still in the bag, five wood is safe. The only question mark is my irons as they’re coming up on six years in the bag. I’m wondering if I’m leaving something on the table.”
  • mwink822: “Most of my bag is safe but for wedges. I may be adding either Cleveland RTX4 wedges or Vokeys in the near future. Not that the Mizunos have been bad, but they’re getting to that point in their life where replacement may be wise.”
  • shanx: “I have had the same pair of wedges forever (TM RAC Raw tour grooves copper). I got them off the infamous BSG back in the day, don’t see any reason to change them, other than the grooves are probably illegal. Everything else is subject to change.”

    Nothing really that safe in my bag. I like to switch it up a lot and see what is working for me at the moment.

    Got some special P750s that were built in the early stages that say Proto on the badge instead of P750 they’re a gem that won’t be leaving the bag anytime soon.

    My putter is driving me nuts! Just replaced my Bettinardi QB6 with an Odyssey White Hot XG8 w/Rosemark 1.52 grip (put same grip on QB6). If that doesn’t work I have 6 more putters waiting for their chance to win some skins!

    SIK Jo putter. Got it from Kenny Knox 7 years ago. It’s gnarled and bumped and scratches all over it but it’s the ideal putter for me.

    My 712 AP2’s are safe forever. My Rife (Evenroll) putter is safe even longer. New Vokeys to replace old Vokeys. TM Driver, fairway and hybrids…not so much.

PXG expanding Battle Ready putter collection with Closer and Spitfire

Published

on

PXG is expanding its Battle Ready Collection of putters with the all-new: Closer and Spitfire models which are 100 percent milled and have been engineered to combine high MOI with prominent alignment features to increase confidence on the greens. 

“Golfers love options. And our new Battle Ready Closer and Spitfire are two of the very best putters you’ll ever use. Period. These putters are fully optimized, from CG and MOI to stability and alignment so that you can sink more putts” -PXG founder and CEO Bob Parsons

Battle Ready Closer

The Battle Ready Closer is a high MOI wide-body blade featuring high-density tungsten in the heel and toe to increase the putter’s stability compared to the previous model and optimize the center of gravity.

Beyond the flange sightline, the geometry of the head is intentionally built around parallel and perpendicular lines for easy alignment.

Battle Ready Spitfire

The Spitfire is a “wide-winged” mallet with the wings built using tungsten to create a very high-MOI and to also aid with alignment.

Technology

  • Optimized face pattern – Like with previous PXG putters, the pyramid face pattern optimizes the ball speed across the putter face by reducing speed on center strikes while also retaining speed towards the heel and toe, all providing a soft feel. The face ensures consistency in all parameters that affect roll including; initial ball velocity, launch angle, spin rate, and skid.
  • Tungsten weighting – For maximum stability, the putter has an added tungsten frame along the perimeter to boost MOI and create a deeper center of gravity. The Tungsten works alongside the lightweight aluminum frame to remove mass away from the center while still having ports for weight customization.

Price, specs, and availability

Both the Battle Ready series Closer and Spitfire putters will retail at $525 but are being introduced at a special introductory price of $295. For more information or book a putter fitting, visit PXG.com or call 844.PLAY.PXG.

Specs will vary based on putter configurations, but each putter will have the option for a plumber’s neck, Heel Shafted, Double Bend, or Armlock – provide additional customization based on a player’s unique stroke style.

Lots of new and old gear in play at Wells Fargo Championship

Published

on

With the next major of the golf season, the PGA Championship, coming up in just a few weeks at Kiawah Island, players are gearing up and pulling out all the stops when it comes to dialing in their clubs. For many players, this means getting news clubs in the bag, and for others, it also means potentially going back to some old favorites that just “feel right.”

Already this week, we spotted Rory McIlroy going back to his TaylorMade Rors Proto irons, and after closely inspecting the many tour gallery pictures from the Wells Fargo, there was a lot more we spotted.

Here’s the rundown.

Justin Thomas continues to stick with Titleist TS3

Although he did test the TSi Series drivers when they were released, Justin Thomas continues to stick with the same TS3 driver that helped him win The Players earlier this year.

Jason Dufner with new Cobra 3D printed putter

The Duf-man has been in tinker mode with the putter for a while now, and this week, he had a new (presumably) 3D printed fang style Cobra putter on greens at Quail Hollow. We did catch up to him later in the day where he had another Cobra putter he has been using for a while, so I guess it’s going to be a game-time decision come Thursday.

Patrick Cantlay getting used to his new Scotty Cameron

Patrick has long been a blade putter guy, but a few weeks ago he was seen with an Odyssey 2-Ball at the RBC Heritage, and this week in Charlotte he was using a Scotty Cameron T-5.

Corey Conners with new Ping i59 irons

The new Ping i59 irons are the talk of GolfWRX right now and for good reason — they look really cool! Ping staffers must be taking notice because not only has Viktor Hovland made the switch but so has Corey Conners (above) and Hunter Mahan (below).

The switch has also been confirmed thanks to Ping’s continuously updated WITB section of their website.

Bryson back to Cobra LTD

After testing a new “Bryson prototype” Cobra RadSpeed driver at the Masters in April, Mr. DeChambeau is back to the Bay Hill-par-5-driving Cobra LTD.  Considering his driving was such a strength in that win, it looks like it’s here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Pat Perez with PXG Gen4 irons

Pat Perez changes his Jordan shoes a lot more often than he changes his irons, but this week he has a new set of PXG 0311 Gen4 irons in the bag, which are easy to spot thanks to their signature weight screw in the back of the head.

To keep up to date with all the discussion around equipment this week at Quail Hollow and to see all of the galleries head over to the GolfWRX forums: 2021 Wells Fargo – Discussion & Links

Anyone play a 9-wood? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing 9-woods. WRXer ‘Uglande’ wants to know if there is a place for the 9-wood in the bag, especially after the revival of 7-woods in the modern game, saying:

“4-iron is a tricky spot for a lot of us, and I have never gotten along with hybrids. Is bagging a 9 wood that crazy of an idea? If Dustin Johnson can hit a 7 wood, why isn’t a 9 wood a realistic choice for the rest of us mortals?”

And our members have been having their say on the matter 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.

  • tbowles411: “Sure do. Love it. It gives me around 200 yards off the tee and off the deck. It makes the long game easier for me, by a LOT!”
  • Feelingofgreatness: “9 wood is generally higher MOI, higher launching and across the spectrum more backspin and less hook bias.”
  • Argonne69: “Yeah, I replaced my 4h with a 9w a few seasons ago. I had trouble getting the hybrid airborne at times, but the 9w launches easily. I also have a 7w.”
  • mosesgolf: “Yup. I love mine, which replaced the 4 iron. It is so much easier to hit and elevate.”
