Interesting photos from the Waste Management Phoenix Open (plus links to all WMPO galleries)

Published

on

The Waste Management Phoenix Open is one of the most popular events on tour, and this week we were on and off-site capturing images from both the Monday Qualifier and from the Tuesday practice rounds at TPC Scottsdale.

Considering how many professional golfers live in the Scottsdale area, as well as Ping and PXG headquartered nearby, it has a major “home town” event vibe for many of the pros and these are the most interesting images we saw from Tuesday.

Don’t forget that you can check out the full image galleries in the GolfWRX Tour Equipment forum.

New 2021 Titleist tour staff bag

Titleist recently updated its carry bags for 2021, and it appears that the company has also quietly updated tour staff bags too.

Rahm loves to mess with setup

A quick count shows that John Rahm has 14 clubs in his bag—before you count anything with a headcover. This is not unusual for Rahm since he often changes clubs based on course conditions, I just feel for his caddie.

Erik van Rooyen is looking sharp

Lookout Adam Scott and Rafa Cabrera Bello, Erik looks to quickly be moving towards gaining the title of the best-dressed golfer on tour.

Link Soul carry bag

Although it has become a bit more popular recently, lighter weight stand bags are still not that common on the PGA Tour, and to see such a minimalist bag is even rarer – this player must really like his caddy.

Jason Day’s WITB

Equipment free-agents always has the most interesting golf bag setups and Jason Day certainly has a mixed bag of gear.

Zach Johnson’s camo PXG bag

PXG embraces camo prints any chance it can, and Zack Johnson’s camo bag is one of the most unique on tour.

db_straitvibin, aka Daniel Berger, still kicking it old school (plus a new driver)

Daniel Berger continues to play the 2011 TaylorMade TP MC forged irons, and it’s a delight to see these gems continue to rake in money on tour.

Be a bulldog

It’s usually Ping bags that we spot with custom university colourways, but this TaylorMade Georgia Bulldogs bag is looking sharp in the land of the Sun Devils.

It’s still “putt for dough”

The putting green is always full of interesting contraptions, and this week we spotted a number of things from a BGT Stability shaft, to a bungee cord, and an alignment stick.

We also saw a cool new training aid, which appears to be a tempo training device.

See all our photos from TPC Scottsdale below.

    Those MC irons are a great looking club.

    Whose linksoul stand bag? Appears to have the illusive PXG 0211 FBs in the bag . . .

    “Erik van Rooyen is looking sharp” stop. The Jersey shore styling there is a far cry from Adam Scott (who will not be dethroned by someone wearing joggers)

GolfWRX is live this week from the Monterey Peninsula in Pebble Beach, California, for the 2023 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the most scenic and celebrity-filled event on the PGA Tour.

Pebble Beach Golf Links sits atop cliffs that overlook Carmel Bay, producing both breathtaking views and an imposing threat. The multi-course event is also played on Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course.

A unique inclusion in this week’s photos: celebrity WITBs from a few of the amateurs in the field (including Darius Rucker, SchoolboyQ, and Macklemore). We also have a number of WITBs from the professional contingent and a look at Buffalo Bills’ QB Josh Allen’s sticks. Also: A look at some iconic Arnold Palmer clubs (pictured in the featured image).

Wedge Stamping Caviar: Have More Fun Edition

Published

on

Pop open a tin of the finest beluga, GolfWRXers… In all seriousness, it’s less jelly-like substance, more richness of intrigue than salt-cured roe at Wedge Stamping Caviar as we present to you some of the finest instances of hammer-and-stamp work on the PGA Tour.

In this initial serving, we’re mining photos from October and November at PGA Tour stops, including the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, the Cadence Bank Houston Open, and the RSM Classic.

So grab your mother-of-pearl spoon and dig in — with restraint, please.

The traditional K.I.S.S. stamping on a BV proto: first and last initial, demonstrated here by Andrew Landry. Bonus points for the bounce angle (8) stamp.

When your last name is something imposing/interesting, you’re definitely stamping it on your wedge as Cole Hammer has done here in a “University of Texas” colorway.

Simple, perfect stamping for Xuewen Luo. 

Patrick Cantlay is still rolling with a SM7. Ultimate K.I.S.S. to stick with a previous generation wedge with stamped initials. Bent loft (47 degrees) is a classy touch. 

Excellent #perspective on Kevin Roy’s 54-degree Vokey.

Anytime a custom grind wears off the loft number, it’s caviar. Lovely patina on Woodland’s Wilson, too. 

Another favorite motif: Tiny initials pattern (as demonstrated by Palmer Jackson). 

The Webb Simpson traditional. Maybe the longest-serving stamping on Tour. 

Not a stamping on Akshay Bhatia’s Jaws Raw, but we’ll serve it up anyway for reasons immediately discernible to the seasoned palate.
