This listing is loaded with clubheads but the big hitters here are the TaylorMade SIM Max heads bent flat at The Kingdon. But if those are your style there is still lots to choose from.

GolfWRX members are a crafty bunch when it comes to gear, and it looks like someone got a hold of a Ping G425 before the official North American release. Now you too can get one before it’s available.

Xander Schauffele switches to armlock putter…despite wanting the method banned

Published

on

Xander Schauffele has made a significant putting switch this week at Murfield Village, implementing the armlock method on the greens — a technique he feels should be banned.

The Californian is statistically one of the best putters on Tour and ranks ninth this season for strokes gained: putting. However, in a surprising move, he has now decided to move to an armlock version of his regular putter (Odyssey O-Works #7 CH Red) in search of more advantage.

On Thursday, Schauffele told media following his opening round that it’s still a method he believes should be banned on Tour despite the change.

“My putting coach (Derek Uyeda), my whole team honestly, we’re very against change and I had to see what the craze was about. I do feel funny, obviously being a top-10 putter on Tour, switching putters or the style of putting. It’s a distinct advantage.

“I am for banning the armlock putters, but if everyone else is going to use it and I feel like they have a bigger advantage, I may as well do the same.”

The change worked to great effect in round one at the Memorial. Schauffele needed just 28 putts during his opening round of 68, and after his round, the Californian explained his new process on the greens.

“It’s easier; it’s more consistent. My coach and I work a lot in San Diego on start lines and making sure the ball’s doing what we think it’s doing. And the fact that [the putter] is anchored to your arm…you can flinch in your hands, but you can’t flinch your entire left arm. So that’s the process behind that.”

Despite the change in process, Schauffele still believes that the game’s authorities should ban the armlock method, saying how it “takes the stress of putting out of the game”.

“It takes the stress of putting out of the game. Putting is so stressful. Obviously hitting shots and chipping and all kinds of stuff are difficult, but your putts are what give you the score on the card. It’s ruined a lot of people’s careers and it’s helped people’s career.

“So I think putting is an art in our game and when you lock it to your arm or anchor it to your body, it kind of gets rid of that.”

As for putting goals, Schaufelle has set himself a big target of ending the season ranked number one in Strokes Gained: Putting, a goal he feels he can reach now with the armlock technique.

“I know how good it can be and I think you still have to read putts and get the speed down correct. I’m in a very similar setup compared to my old putter and I know I can putt with a shorter putter, so I figured if I can get an advantage on the greens, and maybe get to first in putting, that would be something special. So I’m going to give it a go.”

Jon Rahm puts new Odyssey putter in play at Memorial Tournament

Published

on

Jon Rahm looked to have settled on putters, having become a Callaway staffer earlier this year, but at Muirfield Village, the Spaniard has changed flatsticks again.

The 26-year-old had been using a Odyssey 2-Ball Ten putter this season but has now moved to an Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S putter as he searches for form on the greens.

The Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S putter is a slant-necked flatstick with no alignment aid and features a Microhinge Star insert for speed off the face.

Joe Toulon, the PGA Tour rep for Odyssey, broke the news and explained why Rahm had made the switch, explaining that he had been struggling with his putting from 8-10 feet.

Rahm ranks outside the top 100 in putting this season, and the move to a new putter worked nicely in round one at the Memorial, with the Spaniard gaining 1.5 strokes over the field on the greens.
