Lots of new and old gear in play at Wells Fargo Championship

Published

on

With the next major of the golf season, the PGA Championship, coming up in just a few weeks at Kiawah Island, players are gearing up and pulling out all the stops when it comes to dialing in their clubs. For many players, this means getting news clubs in the bag, and for others, it also means potentially going back to some old favorites that just “feel right.”

Already this week, we spotted Rory McIlroy going back to his TaylorMade Rors Proto irons, and after closely inspecting the many tour gallery pictures from the Wells Fargo, there was a lot more we spotted.

Here’s the rundown.

Justin Thomas continues to stick with Titleist TS3

Although he did test the TSi Series drivers when they were released, Justin Thomas continues to stick with the same TS3 driver that helped him win The Players earlier this year.

Jason Dufner with new Cobra 3D printed putter

The Duf-man has been in tinker mode with the putter for a while now, and this week, he had a new (presumably) 3D printed fang style Cobra putter on greens at Quail Hollow. We did catch up to him later in the day where he had another Cobra putter he has been using for a while, so I guess it’s going to be a game-time decision come Thursday.

Patrick Cantlay getting used to his new Scotty Cameron

Patrick has long been a blade putter guy, but a few weeks ago he was seen with an Odyssey 2-Ball at the RBC Heritage, and this week in Charlotte he was using a Scotty Cameron T-5.

Corey Conners with new Ping i59 irons

The new Ping i59 irons are the talk of GolfWRX right now and for good reason — they look really cool! Ping staffers must be taking notice because not only has Viktor Hovland made the switch but so has Corey Conners (above) and Hunter Mahan (below).

The switch has also been confirmed thanks to Ping’s continuously updated WITB section of their website.

Bryson back to Cobra LTD

After testing a new “Bryson prototype” Cobra RadSpeed driver at the Masters in April, Mr. DeChambeau is back to the Bay Hill-par-5-driving Cobra LTD.  Considering his driving was such a strength in that win, it looks like it’s here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Pat Perez with PXG Gen4 irons

Pat Perez changes his Jordan shoes a lot more often than he changes his irons, but this week he has a new set of PXG 0311 Gen4 irons in the bag, which are easy to spot thanks to their signature weight screw in the back of the head.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
