Patrick Cantlay changed putters again at Zurich Classic

Published

on

Patrick Cantlay replaced his long-time Scotty Cameron with an Odyssey 2-Ball at the RBC Heritage, and at Zurich Classic, the 29-year-old once again had a new gamer in the bag.

Rather than a swift return to his Scotty Cameron blade, Cantlay put a new mid-mallet Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 Tour Prototype in play—which he worked with Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Drew Page to dial in.

Per Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Drew Page, the putter, which features a double-bend shaft without any alignment features, provides Cantlay added stability through its compact wingback construction.

“The Phantom X 5 gives Patrick the stability he was looking for, and without any lines, he feels freed up to be more athletic with the putting stroke.” 

On his first week with the putter, Cantlay finished T11 alongside partner Xander Schauffele at the New Orleans event.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best lightweight irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing lightweight irons. WRXer ‘UltimateLightweight’ says that he is “feeling the weight” of his old clubs and is on the hunt for a new lightweight set of irons, and our members have been sharing their best picks 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.

  • MattM97: “XXIO are a good option.”
  • Davidv: “XXIO or Ping G710 with Distanza shaft.”
  • Pepperturbo: “Today, club heads are similarly weighted. However, graphite shafts can vary from 60 grams to 125g, steel goes to 134g. All depends on how much you want to spend. PXG has some lite setups.”
  • SavageHenry: “Bridgestone J15 DF.”

GolfWRX Spotted: Prototype Callaway Jaws wedge

Published

on

Callaway introduced the most recent iteration of its Mack Daddy line in September of 2019 with Jaws MD5 wedges. So, you don’t have to be the savviest of GolfWRX forum members to deduce we’re due for another generation of Callaway wedges soon.

I mention all of this as a preamble to ask the question: Is this design we spotted in the bag of Chase Seiffert at the Rocket Mortgage Classic the next Callaway Jaws wedge? (and might we be sold bold as to christen it the “MD6”?)

The answer according to Callaway? Not exactly.

The official word from the Carlsbad-based company, “This is a prototype wedge. We’re constantly testing prototype products with our staff pros out on tour.”

In other words, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but they aren’t saying.

Regardless of whether this is the “MD6”, it is a new wedge design with a different channel in the rear of the club. Given the trend toward moving mass around in wedges, we can assume this is done in order to optimize weight placement to enhance launch and offer a measure of forgiveness. There certainly looks to be more mass high in the toe of the wedge.

Enhanced grooves were a big part of the MD5 story (generating lower launch, higher spin than with the Mack Daddy 4). Indeed, Callaway marketed the Jaws grooves as “the most aggressive grooves in golf.” It stands to reason that, if this is the MD5’s successor, there will be improved groove technology here as well — but that’s difficult to determine from a spy shot of the cavity of the club and no comment from the manufacturer!

We’ll keep an eye on Callaway staffers’ bags in the tournaments ahead and will certainly let you know when we have more information.

In the meantime, speculate away! What do you think about this design? Does this have the look of a wide release to you or is this a more limited prototype? Let us know in the comments.
