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.

    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)

Interesting photos from the Charles Schwab Challenge

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from the 76th edition of the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club.

Marvin Leonard’s dream plays to a par 70 at 7,209 yards, and this year’s tournament features a strong field for the week following a major championship. Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed, Collin Morikawa, Louis Oosthuizen, and Justin Rose are all putting a peg in the ground in Fort Worth.

Speaking of Justin Rose, it looks like Rosey has benched his Mizuno MP-20 irons and returned to TaylorMade P730’s with a few Srixon ZX U irons in the mix as well.

Patrick “Captain America” Reed is getting hooked up with an appropriate new putter cover from Scotty Cameron.

Erik Compton was spotted testing an Axis1 Rose putter.

The winner of the Charles Schwab Challenge will add this restored 1946 Dodge Power Wagon to his garage.

…past winner Kevin Na was spotted checking out the interior.

A look at the action of American Idol’s Bobby Bones.

Have you tried this putting training aid/drill?

Rose complemented the iron switch with a new bag as well.

What time is it? 5:57, unofficially.

Patrick Rodgers demonstrates respect for Hogan’s Alley by conducting his extended putting practice atop a towel to preserve the green. Well played, pro.

Always fun to chuck in with equipment free agent Ryan Palmer…

Maverick McNealy can’t quit his Nike VR Pro irons.

Sharing McNealy’s love of lead tape is Scottie Scheffler.

Who will be added to the Wall of Champions this year?
