Most interesting photos from Tuesday at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play

Published

on

This week, the PGA Tour is at the Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas, for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to spy a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers. The field of 64 is getting ready to battle starting today for the $10.5 million purse with $1.8 million going to the winner.

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

Matt Kuchar’s very custom Bettinardi

Matt’s armlock-style putting requires a very unique setup to create the proper dynamics for great roll, and the most noticeable is the large amount of loft and offset on the head.

Berger’s not quitting on his TaylorMade MC’s

Another week on tour and another week for one of the oldest iron models out there.

Hideki’s inspirational bag of clubs

Hideki Matsuyama is absolutely prolific when it comes to club testing—we counted 14 clubs before even getting to the ones with headcovers—and we can’t forget about all those shafts.

2 thumbs up for the 2 Thumb Grip

Putter grips are one of those things your either test or never change, and for Matt Wallace, he has been having some pretty steady success with his 2 Thumb Grip.

Arnie is forever

A lot of golfers have a great affinity for Arnold Palmer, and Jason Kokrak shows his with a signature Arnie umbrella headcover.

Ryder Cup reps for Fleetwood

2021 is a Ryder Cup year, and for Tommy Fleetwood, he is keeping his 4-1 feeling alive with a European Ryder Cup cover.

Imagine being so good at golf…

You have the exclusive luxury of being sponsored by a chicken company. For Brendon Todd, that is a reality. It is certainly not the most unusual bag sponsor of all time and although it’s fun to joke around, there is nothing funny about Todd’s game, he’s all business, just like his SIK putter.

Bryson’s got graphite

It’s well known by now that Bryson exclusively uses graphite in all his clubs, yes even his putter, and this week he looks to have a few extra driver shafts in the bag just in case.

Is Jason Day a Motorhead fan?

“If you like to gamble, I tell you I’m your man – You win some, lose some, all the same to me”

His Ace of Spades cover could be a nod to the English rockers.

Yeah, I don’t know what this is either

South African Erik Van Rooyen is the 68th ranked player in the world, so who am I to judge whatever this very unusual putting aid is. Do you know?

    Ryan,

    Looks like Van Rooyen is using a Gravity Fit training device.

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.

Photos from the 2022 Cadence Bank Houston Open

Published

on

GolfWRX was on site this week ahead of the 2022 Cadence Bank Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course.

The year is winding down, but the wraparound 2022-2023 season is just getting underway, so players are poised to do a bit of tinkering ahead of January equipment launches. To that end, we got an in-hand look at Justin Rose’s new prototype “JR” irons. We also spotted new shafts from KBS and Mitsubishi as well as new grips from SuperStroke.

Check out all of our photos below.
