The number one player in the world surprised reporters at this week’s PGA Championship by revealing he has no clue what model of putter he is gaming.

Johnson has used a couple of different putters in 2021, with the latest being a TaylorMade winged TP Bandon 1 Prototype putter.

Asked pre-tournament what flat-stick he’ll be using at Kiawah Island, the 36-year-old explained that while he knows the flat-stick is a TaylorMade, he has no idea what the model is.

Check out the exchange below.

High school sophomore records a historic 57 in conference championship

Published

on

59s don’t come along too often, only 11 have been recorded in PGA Tour history. 58s are even more rare. 57s are practically unheard, but that’s what Macy Pate, a Reagan High School sophomore, recorded in the Central Piedmont 4-A Conference championships on Tuesday.

Pate’s tournament winning and record breaking performance occurred at Bermuda Run Country Club in North Carolina. Pate came out of the gates firing, with a front nine 27. Knowing she needed to shoot one-under par over her final three holes to record a 59, Pate birdied all three.

As the number-one ranked girls player in the state, we should say we aren’t entirely surprised, but 57 is in an entirely different stratosphere. Pate’s historic round shattered the NCSHAA scoring record. We have a feeling we will see more of her in the future.

99-year-old golfer hits into group ahead, records a hole-in-one

Published

on

There’s nothing worse in golf than the group ahead playing at a snail’s pace. With that being said, we do not condone hitting into them as an acceptable solution.

We may be willing to make an exception however for Hugh Brown, a 99-year-old Australian golfer, and instant hero.

On the 145-meter par 3 fifth hole of the blue nine at Indooroopilly Golf Club in Queensland, Australia, with a driver in hand, Brown recorded hole-in-one number two of his golfing career.

The shot was met with yelling from the group ahead, but it was hard to stay mad at Brown for long given that his tee-ball found the bottom of the cup. Check out how it all went down courtesy of 9News Queensland.

Brown’s last hole in one came 38 years ago when he was at the tender age of 61. Just two months away from his 100th birthday, the Aussie legend still plays golf three times a week.

Phil Mickelson’s PGA Championship winning Odyssey putter could be on its way to retail

Published

As far as putters go, Phil Mickelson’s Odyssey Milled Blade “Phil Mickelson” flat-stick may be one of the most admired by amateur golfers on Tour.

Golf fans have long been hoping that the blade would make its way to retail, and it appears they may finally get their wish very soon.

On Tuesday, Odyssey hinted on their Twitter that a small-batch release could be in the pipeline to commemorate Lefty’s history-making 2021 PGA Championship victory.

Phil Mickelson quickly responded to the tease from Odyssey, tweeting “I like the idea”, and golf fans were in complete agreement with the 6-time major champion, who gave their seal of approval to the idea under the post.

GolfWRXers, would you be interested in seeing a Mickelson putter release at retail?
