Published

In our forums, our members have been comparing their 7 iron distance and discussing shaft options. WRXer ‘Hypergolf’ wants to get a feel for how far players hit the club and wants to know the loft of the 7 irons WRXers use too. He kicks off the thread:  

“I hit 7 iron (33*) on average 160 meters (175 yards) and currently using Modus 120 stiff.”

And our members have been sharing their specs in our forum.

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

  • RyKnocks: “140-145yds, Callaway XR Pro, KBS Tour 90v stiff.”
  • ShAMbotay: “170-ish yards, ’19 PXG 0211, MMT 80 stiff.”
  • b.mattay: “180-185 yards, PX 7.0, loft a smidge weaker than 34 degrees.”

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.

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.
