  • toddmanley: “I’m a sweeper too and have a set of Apex 21 Pro’s being built right now. Coming from playing Mizuno blades for the past ~18 years (33’s, 18’s) I really like the look and turf interaction of the Callaway irons.”
  • Smitty1961: “I’m a scratch hdcp sweeper. I had the MP18’s and the MP20’s, I liked the Apex Pro’s better, and they were definitely longer. I believe you are on the right track.”
  • Radeon962: “Sweeper here and played Pings for a long time. Favorites were G25 and i210. Moved to PXG 0211, and they are like a better feeling i210. Very similar specs, but long irons are easier to hit. Heads look very similar at address.”

GolfWRX Spotted: New “Prototype” Ping Glide Forged Pro wedges

Published

on

This week the PGA Tour is in Austin, Texas, for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and we made a very rare sighting of a pre-released “prototype” Ping wedge.

The wedges were spotted in the bags of both Andy Sullivan and Bubba Watson and according to the images will be called the Glide Forged Pro.

Ping keeps close tabs on its staff players “what’s in the bag,” and Ping’s website has confirmed that Bubba is playing some version of three prototype wedges.

We have no information on a potential release date but you can join the discussion in the GolfWRX forums here:

Rickie Fowler’s iron switch isn’t the only equipment change he’s made recently

Published

on

Rickie Fowler made plenty of noise recently when he switched out his Cobra ‘Rickie Fowler’ Rev 33 Proto Blades in favor of the more forgiving King Forged CB irons.

The Rev 33 proto irons had been a staple in Fowler’s bag for some time, but beginning at the Players, the 32-year-old decided a change was needed and according to Cobra, the decision was down to Fowler wanting more offset, which would help him with his starting line.

The results were mixed for Fowler with the CB irons at PGA National – who is bagging the clubs from 5i through PW. The Californian gained strokes on day one with the irons for his approach shots but ended the tournament losing 3.7 strokes for approach play.

In addition to the Cobra King Forged CB blacked out irons, Fowler had an AMP Cell Pro CB 4-iron and a Cobra King F9 4-iron, which he is using in a driving iron capacity, last week in Florida.

Another significant change is that Rickie opted for the Cobra Radspeed XB Palm Tree Crew edition driver at the Honda Classic. The XB driver contains a higher MOI which is designed to offer players greater stability.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for what Fowler opts for this week in Austin.

GolfWRX Spotted: Rory McIlroy testing SuperStroke grip; changes putters again

Published

on

Rory McIlroy has recently hired swing coach Pete Cowen to his ‘performance team’ as he looks to regain form, but rather than any swing changes, it’s a significant change on the greens that we’ve spotted ahead of this week’s WGC Match Play.

The Irishman has been spotted with a SuperStroke Pistol GT grip at Austin CC this week. Per the company, the grips are designed to help golfers lock in their upper hand position with the brand’s ‘No Taper Technology’ helping to maintain even grip pressure and boost stroke consistency.

It is believed to be the first time McIlroy has ever used a SuperStroke grip, and it’s not the only change worth noting that the 32-year-old appears to be making this week in Austin.

McIlroy looks to have ditched the TaylorMade TP Juno he had been using recently and looks set to put the TalorMade Spider X flat-stick back in play as he attempts to win the WGC Match Play for the second time in his career.

The Irishman has been plagued by inconsistency with the putter this season and currently ranks 105th for Strokes Gained: Putting in 2020/21.
