Dustin Johnson, Matthew Wolff spotted with TaylorMade SIM drivers at Sentry Tournament of Champions

Published

on

We spotted two TaylorMade staffers with the yet-to-be-announced TaylorMade SIM driver in their arsenals ahead of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, which kicks off Thursday from Plantation Course at Kapalua in Hawaii.

TaylorMade’s expected 2020 release hit the USGA Conforming List Monday, so it’s no surprise to see staffers practicing with the club ahead of the 34-man event in Maui.

Dustin Johnson was spotted with a 10.5-degree TaylorMade SIM Max driver and a Fujikura Ventus 6X shaft (tipped 1.5 inches), per our sources. DJ switched between the M5 and M6 driver last year and did give the Ventus a go in competition before returning to his stalwart Fujikura Speeder 661 X Tour Spec 2.0.

Matthew Wolff is reportedly in an eight degree TaylorMade SIM with a Graphite Design Tour AD TP 7TX.

We don’t have word on TaylorMade staffers Collin Morikawa and Jon Rahm (also in the field) yet, although non-staffer Gary Woodland is reportedly demoing the SIM.

(Update: Based on Getty Images, Morikawa looks to be practicing with the SIM with a Tensei CK Pro White shaft)

    Shame it doesn’t go further than his R11.

Bettinardi unveils new 2023-2024 Queen B line of putters

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today introduced its new Queen B Series of putters that includes four timeless models.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.

Bettinardi adds BB28 putter to brand’s BB series

Published

on

Bettinardi has today unveiled the addition of the BB28 to its BB series line.

The BB28 features Aggressive Flymill face milling designed to give the putter a responsive, yet soft feel off the putter head, and offers a full-flange design, which provides greater perimeter weighting and higher M.O.I.characteristics.

This latest addition uses a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finishing technology, which is a thin, yet resilient coating that shows off the mill marks in an artisan way.

Each BB Series putter is one-piece milled from 303 Stainless Steel, which is the same blend of material preferred by all Bettinardi Tour staffers, with the metal offering a more durable, responsive, and solid feeling putter for optimal performance.

Bettinardi have also launched the center shaft BB28 putter featuring a 1/4 toe-hang wide-body blade, as well as a BB28 Armlock containing a near-face-balanced wide-body blade.

The BB28 model is available for pre-order at Bettinardi.com ($430) from November 22nd and at retail on January 22nd.
