Augusta National is… hiring a bartender?

Published

on

Iconic golf club and host site of the Masters, Augusta National, is in fact hiring, although it is not the type of job we were expecting! That’s right, a recent advertisement is calling for… a bartender.

The ideal candidate must be able to, “provide members and guests with the finest food and drink accompanied by attentive and gracious service, while maintaining the strict confidentiality of all club business.” Sounds about right.

Experience wise, one year of bartending experience is required as well as a high school diploma or equivalent. Other vacancies at the club include a Front Desk Assistant, Cook, and Housekeeper, just to name a few.

Check out how the contents of pro’s bags have changed through the years

Published

on

As technology continues to improve in golf equipment, it is no surprise to see that PGA Tour professionals have adapted and made changes to the contents of their golf bags throughout the years.

Check out this post from @sms_on_tour , who tracked the average clubs used by players over the last 15 Opens, to see what types of clubs have become more popular over the last 15 years.

There are a few major takeaways. Firstly, pro golfers seem to be carrying more wedges these days. Phil Mickelson raised eyebrows when he first experimented with carrying four wedges, yet over the last 15 years, we have seen a steady and progressive trend towards many Tour pros deploying a similar approach.

Secondly, there’s been a clear increase in hybrids/utility irons at the expense of regular 2-irons and 3-irons. In theory, this is not surprising given the technological increases and general playability of today’s top hybrids and driving irons. With that being said, Ben Hogan must be turning over in his grave!

WOTW: Collin Morikawa’s Omega Speedmaster ‘57 CO-AXIAL Chronograph

Published

on

Collin Morikawa’s watch was yet again his trusty Omega Speedmaster ‘57 Chronograph after his phenomenal Open Championship win! Morikawa added a second major to his very young resume and letting the golf world know he is one of the best players in the world.

Like all of his past 4 wins, including the 2020 PGA Championship, Collin was wearing his usual Omega Speedy as he held the Claret Jug high in the English sun.

WOTW Specs
Name: Omega Speedmaster ’57 CO-AXIAL Chronograph
Reference: 331.10.42.51.01.001
Limited: No
Date: 2013 – Present
Case: Stainless Steel
Bezel: Tachymeter Stainless Steel
Size: 41.5mm
Movement: Calibre Omega 9300
Power Reserve: 60 hours
Glass: Anti-reflective Saphire Crystal
Water Resistance: 100 Meters
Bracelet: Stainless Steel
Price: $9,000

Omega has been one of the most legendary watch makers in the world for decades and have deep roots in sports. Omega has been the official timer of the Olympics as well as many other sporting events. Founded in 1848 by Louis Brandt, but the name Omega was officially changed in 1903. The Speedmaster was introduced in 1957 as a precision timepiece for racing and Collin’s Speedy pay homage to the original with its styling.

At 41.5mm the stainless steel case is easy to wear for just about any wrist size. The back of the case has a sapphire display window where you can view the Calibre 9300 movement. The Calibre 9300 is a self-winding automatic movement featuring Omega’s CO-AXIAL escapement. The CO-AXIAL escarpment was designed for better efficiency and use of the stored energy from the twin barrels. The 9300 offers the wearer 60 hours of power reserve and contains 54 jewels.

Fitted on top of the case is a stainless steel bezel, in a brushed finish, that contains a Tachymeter scale for speed timing. Inside the bezel is a black dial with a date window at 6 o’clock. The dial has 2 sub-dials on the right and left side that are uses as a 60-minute recorder and running seconds. Around the outside of the dial are large rectangular hour markers that are filled with a luminescent material for viewing in low light. Covering the dial is a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. Holding the Speedy on Collin’s wrist is a stainless steel bracelet made from solid, flat links.

The bracelet’s outside lugs are brushed while the centers are polished for a classic look. A butterfly deployant clasp brings the 2 sides together and safely keeps the watch on his wrist.

Collin has yet again proved that he is one of the great young players on the PGA Tour. Now with 2 majors under he belt, we have to wonder how many he will win with a long career ahead of him. Hopefully he can start to build a massive watch collection at the same pace!
