Today from the Forums: “Anthony Kim hypothetical 2020 WITB”

Published

on

Today from the Forums WRXers have been discussing the man, the myth and the legend that is Anthony Kim and predicting what his ‘2020 WITB’ would be were he still on Tour. Our members have been going into detail and using their imagination with some interesting thoughts on the clubs AK would opt for.

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.

  • Golfingfanatic: “TM M5 Tour – Sim fairway woods – Nike VR Pro Blades/ TM P7TW – Artisan wedges – Cameron.”
  • NixLix26: “I like the artisan idea. Who knows maybe it would be National Custom.”
  • brycefaze: “This topic crossed my mind the other day, and I thought this would be great for WRX, nicely done. 1. If AK signed with another company, it would be TaylorMade. or 2. If stayed free agent, he would be TaylorMade woods, Mizuno or Miura irons, Scotty putter and Titleist ball.”
  • Jack_H: “Artisan. With TM woods.”

    Anthony Kim made 11 birdies at the 2009 Masters during the 2nd round of the tournament. Just think about that. Almost 2 out of every 3 holes…

    When will his insurance run out? I thought I heard once it was 10 mill. With a time off away stamp so to say. Stand to be corrected. He was pretty exciting to watch in his day. Still a long way off til the Senior Tour though.

Jimmy Walker spotted testing L.A.B. Blade, graphite putter shaft at Valspar Championship

Published

on

The putting green at a PGA Tour event is always full of interesting things as players get ready for the week ahead, and this week at the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida, is no different.

One of the biggest trends in golf is technology-packed graphite shafts for putters, and we continue to see them in more players’ bags week after week. Louis Oosthuizen had a BGT Stability Tour in play last week at the Zurich Classic, and this week, we spotted 2016 PGA Championship winner Jimmy Walker working with a L.A.B. Blade putter fitted with an LA Golf Shafts Prototype graphite putter shaft.

Although we don’t have the specs of the exact shaft Jimmy is using, LA Golf shafts are well recognized as being one of the leaders in creating ultra-stable graphite shafts for the tour’s biggest hitter Bryson DeChambeau, who not only uses their Texas Rebar shafts in his irons but also a specially designed shaft for hit putter too.

As for Jimmy, this is an interesting move since one of the bright spots of his 2021 stats is his putter where he currently ranks 40th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: putting.

Adidas unveils new Stan Smith golf shoe in classic colorway

Published

on

Adidas Golf is bringing the classic Stan Smith colorway to the course, with the new unmistakable white and green golf shoe.

Building upon the new PimeGreen upper made with high-performance recycled materials1 as part of Adidas’ mission to End Plastic Waste, this version is also waterproof (one-year warranty) to help keep golfers dry both on and off the course.

The new Stan Smith golf shoe features a PU cushioning in targeted areas in the midsole to go alongside a PU die-cut sockliner in a bid to provide maximum comfort.

The shoe also contains an adiwear spikeless outsole that features lugs inspired by the shoe’s original sole design, offering some added traction for all course conditions to go along with their style.

“When we were talking about bringing this shoe into golf, the original white and green colorway was a must-have as part of our planning. The Stan Smith silhouette is known throughout the world for being so versatile from a fashion standpoint, so we’re excited to give golfers that same style and versatility for when they head out to the course, now in a more sustainable way.” – Masun Denison, global footwear director, Adidas Golf.

As an ode to the traditions of the past, Adidas has also included a removable white kiltie to provide players another way to wear their shoes and give off some added flair for their round.

This classic white and green colorway of the Stan Smith Golf will be available on adidas.com, through the Adidas app, and at select retail partners worldwide beginning Saturday, May 1.
