‘My LPGA inspired bag’ – GolfWRXers react

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been reacting to WRXer ‘Barony19’, who has got himself an LPGA inspired WITB that is working wonders for his game.

Barony19 kicks off the thread, saying:

“Being a bit bored, I started looking around and realized my numbers look a lot closer to an LPGA Tour player than a PGA, so I took a look at their set makeups and decided to put something together that was similar based on what I already had laying around and what I could get my hands on. (Not so easy right now, it turns out). 

Played a few times and have to say what a joy it is to hit soft, high shots into tight pins from decent distances. One par 3 today stuck out—185ish to the flag. Pin tucked tight to the right side on a shallow collar of green behind a bunker.

With a 5 iron, I’d either have to bail left to where the green was deeper or shoot at the pin and accept the ball either rolling through the back or coming up short in the trap. Instead, it was an easy swing with the 5 hybrid and a high, soft fade to 10 feet. (Missed the putt, though, haha). 

Anyone else doing similar? I have to admit. It was hard to park the ego, but the results don’t lie.”

And our members have been very interested in the strategy and have been giving their views on the experiment 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.

  • NoTalentLefty: “Doing something similar for a few years now. Using hybrids 3 thru 6. Carrying a weaker 3 wood at 16 degrees. I agree with the OP; if your swing speeds are closer to the LPGA, you can learn a lot more from them about equipment than the PGA Tour.”
  • wam78: “I put a 7 wood in the bag this year, and it’s been nothing short of spectacular for my game. That’s as far as I’ve got, though…haha. I freaking love hitting long irons.”
  • Cactus Jack: “I’m a high swing speed player but have taken a similar approach. Currently, I play 4 wood, 7 wood, 4 hybrid, and max forgiveness 5 iron. Playing a 4 wood allows me to keep an extra wedge in the bag, and the 7 wood is the best addition I’ve ever made.”
  • JLo_73: “Something similar with my lowest lofted iron being a 6 iron. Granted 585 set, so 6 iron is at 28 degrees. For years, I hated hybrids, but my 816/818 duo has changed my mind. I got to a point where I was tired of looking down at an iron that looked like it had no loft, which translated to no confidence.”

The inside story of Will Zalatoris’ putter switch

Published

on

Editor’s note: We filed this piece for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report.

“When I get some time off, I think this could be a game-changer.”

That was Will Zalatoris’ first thought after rolling a few putts with a Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11 prototype putter in May. He got that time off, unfortunately, following a back injury that forced him out of The Open Championship and kept him on the sidelines until last week.

While resting and rehabbing at home following his early exit from Royal St. George’s, Zalatoris, who “hated every minute” of the downtime, decided to engage in some flatstick experimentation.

He found the Phantom X 11 prototype putter — with a black topline for added alignment — both rolled the ball a more predictable distance and gave him more feedback off the face.

“I loved how immediately off the face … I just get immediate feedback,” Zalatoris said. “I was starting to lose that a little bit with my putter. … I can feel that ball exactly where it comes off on the face.”

Zalatoris put the putter in play at last week’s World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, where he finished eighth. He was ninth in Strokes Gained: Putting at TPC Southwind after ranking 150th in the category for the season.
