    Definitely get the weight kit. Feels much better with the heavier weights.

    I’ve been playing with the Kirkland glove and while it gets a little stiff sooner than a premium glove right out of the box it’s pretty nice and fits well. The balls are horrible. The putter…is probably fine but I’d probably get a replacement cover and lead tape the logo.

    Hey, it’s a putter! Who would have thought?

    wonder if this club will come with some lead tape (to cover over the Kirkland brand). Let’s face it, 95% of Scotty owners couldn’t tell the difference between this and their $500 SC.

    well done Costco!

Phil Mickelson’s bag: How it compares to past wins at Colonial

Published

on

Editor’s note: We filed this piece for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report

Following his improbable PGA Championship triumph, Phil Mickelson is right back in the thick of the action. Twice a champion at Colonial Country Club, Mickelson returns for the Charles Schwab Challenge.

The 50-year-old’s current setup has certainly changed from the artillery he chose early in his career.

Indeed, the equipment landscape itself is entirely different than it was when Mickelson won his first of now 45 PGA TOUR events (as an amateur) in 1991! Titanium drivers were only beginning to show up on TOUR in Lefty’s early years, and Mickelson’s longtime sponsor, Callaway, didn’t release the Great Big Bertha until 1995.

The history of modern golf equipment has literally played out in Mickelson’s bag as a professional.

The differences in Mickelson’s current setup compared to 2000, when he won the first of his two Charles Schwab Challenges, are immediately apparent. His Yonex Super A.D.X. driver was a fraction of the size of his 450 cc Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond. Mickelson has been leaning on a TaylorMade Original One Mini Driver as his second fairway wood this season – the total amount of technology in his two Yonex fairway woods of 2000, or even his Callaway FT-5 driver and FT Tour 3-wood of 2008, is the difference between the Ford Model T and the Ford GT.

Interestingly, Mickelson played Ping Eye 2 wedges throughout his early years and had a 60-degree Eye 2 in the bag for his 2000 win at Colonial. One look at his current PM Grind wedges, and it’s clear the Eye 2 shaping was the original inspiration for the design Mickelson and Callaway engineers continue to refine.

Also notable on the similarities front: the 8802-style heel-shafted blade putter Mickelson has preferred throughout most of his career was present in the bag for both victories and will be in Phil’s hands this week as well. In 2000, Mickelson gamed a custom Bettinardi blade. In 2008, it was the same Odyssey “Phil Mickelson” blade shape that he won with at last week’s PGA Championship.

Check out Mickelson’s WITBs for his 2000 and 2008 wins at Colonial and what he has in the bag this week.

What GolfWRXers are saying about easy to launch hybrids and fairway woods

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best hybrids and fairways that provide easy launch. WRXer ‘Jjfcpa’ is a senior golfer struggling with these clubs and asks fellow members for their suggestions for the best “easy launching and forgiving fairway and hybrids”.

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.

  • boggyman: “Hard to beat PING. Doesn’t have to be the latest series either. Wilson Staff woods come with lighter shafts stock as well.”
  • larryd3: “I’d suggest the Sub70 hybrids. I’ve got 3 in the bag, and they are very easy to hit. Price is great, and they have lots of shaft choices. Just give them a call and discuss your needs. forgot to include that I’m a senior golfer also.”
  • JAM01: “Ping G425 fairways and Hybrids are game-changers. Top is now turbulator free.”
  • Steelhead: “One word: XXIO. Nothing comes close for what you are looking for.”
