Interesting photos from Monday at The Players

Published

on

This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC Sawgrass for the one and only Players Championship. It’s one of the biggest tournaments of the year (the fifth major, as they say!), and GolfWRX was in position to spy some interesting things from the grounds and around the practice area as players are tuning up to to battle for the $15 million purse.

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

Adam Scott loves testing

Adam Scott loves to test equipment. This once-shy-to-test-week-to-week player is slowly becoming more open to trying something new, and it seems to be paying off.

In the lovable words of one of the world’s favorite furry muppets “COOKIES!!!”

Lucas Glover is mixing it up

Former Nike and then Mizuno staffer Lucas Glover is a full gear free agent this year, and what a mixed bag he has. This is the kind of thing equipment junkies love to see.

Callaway’s next driving iron?

This Callaway X-Forged driving iron is currently a “tour only” part make exclusive for players at the highest level, but based on its popularity in players’ bags, maybe it has some potential in the market.

This is a putter stumper

I have seen a lot of putters in my day, but without a close up of this left-handed gem, even us at GolfWRX are truly unsure of its origin.
UPDATE: Thanks to a couple some sharp-eyed golfers for reminding us this 2015 TaylorMade Spider OS.

There it is, still in the bag!

Consider this the weekly report that Jason Dufner’s Titleist 915F 7-wood is still alive and well—and while we’re all here, let’s also admire his custom Cobra forged CB irons.

So many clubs

This Callaway staffer looked like he was holding a yard sale on the range, but in reality, it was just a very in-depth dialing in session.

Don’t try this at home

Professional golfers endorse all kinds of useful training aids, but for all you regular golfers out there, I don’t suggest trying this at home—unless you are looking to tear an Achilles tendon.

An oldie but a goodie

It’s rare to see classic stainless steel Ping putters in the bags of pros, but this Anser 4 looks to be an original vintage. With the fast greens at TPC Sawgrass, its lighter head weight could come in handy.

    Those McNealy protos look like Blueprints with Callaway stamps and the Swingweight weights.

    I’m guessing that’s Oosthuizen rocking the vintage Anser.

    The putter stumper is the TaylorMade OS Spider, released around 2016.

We have shots of Justin Rose testing a new driver (Titleist). We have a first look at Odyssey’s resurrection of the vaunted Tri Hot line. We have nine general galleries and — dramatic pause — 20 in-hand WITB galleries.

The PGA Tour arrives in the Lone Star State this week for the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course.

Even with the year winding down and a general shift to a lower gear, there’s still plenty to digest on the equipment front — and WITBs. A ton of WITBs!

This week, we have WITB looks including the likes of Pat Perez and Tony Finau as well as seven general galleries from Memorial Park.

Dig in, below.

Published

Thanks to our friends at @SMS_on_Tour for sending along some shots from the Portugal Masters, not surprisingly contested in Vilamoura, Portugal, at the Victoria Club de Golfe where Thomas Pieters secured a two-stroke victory (see Pieters’ WITB here).

In addition to in-hand WITB photos, we have behind-the-scenes goodies and even a look at the tour trucks in position to service the needs of the European Tour’s staffers.

Let’s take a look at some interesting photos! (Robert Rock’s motley iron arrangement is the featured image).
