TaylorMade releasing a Dustin Johnson Master’s winning commemorative Spider putter

Published

on

When it comes to the Masters Tournament, TaylorMade has been on quite the roll, you could almost say a Pure Roll—this joke will pay off in the end. 

In 2019, it was Tiger Woods, and in 2020 at a delayed November Master,s Dustin Johnson won by an impressive five shots to take home his first green jacket and second major title.

Tiger’s victory was commemorated by TaylorMade with a limited number of special edition sets of his P7TW irons, and for DJ, the win is being celebrated with the release of a limited edition Spider putter modeled directly from his specs.

The putter will include a “springtime” themed presentation box, cover, and green accented SuperStroke Counter Core GT Pistol 1.0 grip.

As per Dustin’s putter specs, this Spider features a short slant hosel, two nine-gram weights placed in the heel and toe, and a solid black finish with no sightline, which has been DJ’s preferred look for years.

Last but not least, the commemorative Spider is packed with all the same high MOI technology as the standard models and is finished off with TaylorMade’s patented PureRoll insert (joke payoff).

Price and availability

The special edition DJ Commemorative Spider Putter will be available at retail and online starting April 9 and will be priced at $499.

    What is the difference between an itsy-bitsy and a regular spider tour?

      Mostly cosmetic differences. The soleplate was different. Before the itsy bitsy the spider had a much larger footprint. Some vintages had the black shaft. Depending on what vintage you got, it came with a Winn (Jason Day), Paddle original DJ or Superstroke (newer versions). They also only made plumbers neck for retail in gen 2. Inserts have changed slightly. Day’s your issue version had a softer insert.

      I tried asking the online rep. He stated TM doesn’t release that information to the public. I get the feeling it is not that limited…….

GolfWRX Spotted: Henrik Stenson brings blue shaft Diablo 3-wood out of retirement

Published

on

Henrik Stenson and his blue shaft Callaway Diablo Octane 3-wood were once a partnership as prodigious as ham and eggs, and after two years on the sidelines, it appears the trusty club is back in the bag for the Swede.

We spotted Stenson on the grounds at the Valero Texas Open swinging away with his Diablo 3-wood during Tuesday’s practice session as the 44-year-old looks to find some much-needed form.

Stenson retired the club back in 2019, switching in a Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero model but following five missed cuts in a row, it looks like this week could be a reunion between the Swede and the Diablo.

Speaking to the PGA Tour back in 2019, Stenson said:

“It’s always sad when one of the trusties has to retire. I knew long before I gave up on it that the new technology was better and more efficient. When the other one broke in 2017, in February, I was out at a tournament in Dubai, and I had to put (a new fairway wood) in; that thing that I put in for that week was much hotter.”

Stenson’s Callaway Diablo Octane 3-wood equipped with a Grafalloy Blue X shaft was one of the most successful player/club partnerships in recent times.

Stenson rarely missed a fairway with the club, which had a very low loft – stamped 13-degrees but turned down to 11.8-degrees.

Stay tuned to see if the club goes in the bag for Thursday’s opening round.

Kyle Berkshire signs with Cobra/Puma – GolfWRXers react

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been reacting to the news that World Long Drive Champion Kyle Berkshire is now a Cobra/Puma athlete. Berkshire was previously a Callaway staffer and now looks set to use Cobra’s RadSpeed driver for the foreseeable future. 

Speaking on signing with Cobra/Puma, Berkshire revealed his excitement and re-emphasized his ambition to make an impact in the professional game. (He even learned Bryson DeChambeau’s putting technique very effectively recently)

“Excited to announce I’m officially a part of the Cobra and Puma family! Looking forward to being with this team as I pursue my goals in both long drive and pro golf.”

A post shared by Kyle Berkshire (@kyleberkshire)

Here are a few posts from our members reacting to the news, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • PureStrikes54: “Guy has more social media followers than almost anyone in the entire OWGR top 25, youtube channel already one of the largest in golf and growing, Bryson constantly doing collaborations, and tons of PGA tour swing coaches analyzing his move on their socials as well. Great move by Cobra/Puma. If they can flip even a small percentage of Callaway/Taylormade loyalists or make inroads with the younger generation that recently started playing, the deal pays for itself in spades.”
  • PixlPutterman: “He shot +2 on an 8200 yard course with a lip out on 18. Dudes a stud.”
  • RobotDoctor: “Will Kyle Berkshire make it to the PGA Tour and, if so survive? Hard to tell. The state of his current game, I say no. However, I have seen him improve quite a bit in the past year while he has been attempting to improve. His putting is definitely better since working with Bryson. Berkshire is still a little wild with his driver at times, but he has great game. I am pulling for him to make it and succeed on the PGA Tour. He seems like a terrific person.”
