At GolfWRX, we are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways.

It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buying and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a set of Miura CB202 Straight Neck copper irons

From the seller (@FlopIt): “Very rare and gorgeous set of Miura CB202 Straight Neck 4-Pw (includes 3 iron head which has not been hit since the refinish) which were refinished in copper by a local plating shop that has 30 years of experience.  They have seen only 10-15 rounds of play with very minimum range time.

Bag chatter is virtually non-existent as I use an Ogio Silencer bag which locks the clubs in place.  Shafts are Nippon 1150 GH Tour taper tip in stiff flex and I can include a shaft for the 3 iron head but it is parallel tip so the head would need to be reamed to .370.  The grips are Golf Pride standard size MCC red/black and are in very good shape.  

These play standard length (37 inch 7 iron) and lies and lofts are also standard as per Miura specs (47 degree Pw).  Swing weights all match at D2.  These irons feel fantastic and now have now formed a beautiful patina.  All waiting for your custom paint fill or go naked like they are now.  $990 Now $940 OBO.”

David Duval joins Callaway Tour staff

Published

on

David Duval has signed with Callaway ahead of a year that will see him play a full Champions Tour schedule.

For 2022, the former World Number One will play Callaway woods, irons, a Callaway Chrome Soft ball, and an Odyssey putter on the Champions Tour.

Speaking on joining Callaway and playing the Champions Tour, Duval said

“I’ve been working hard on my game for almost a year now, I feel confident about where I’m at, and I’m looking forward to getting back out and competing. In the past I’ve never really been affiliated with one golf brand, and more recently I’ve been looking for a relationship with a company that feels like a family. That’s exactly what I’ve found with the Callaway Team, and I believe that they make the best, most consistent equipment in the game.

I’ve always admired the quality of their products, and with the new golf ball alone I’ve picked up 3 mph ball speed, which has really made a difference for me. They have had so much success especially in recent years across the professional Tours, including the Champions Tour where they’re the most played brand. Joining Callaway is a natural fit for me, and I’m excited for what’s ahead.”

The 50-year-old will make his Champions Tour debut this week in Hawaii, and this summer he will compete in the 150th Open at St. Andrews and at the British Senior Open in Gleneagles.

In addition to using Callaway and Odyssey equipment, Duval will wear TravisMathew apparel and footwear from Cuater by TravisMathew.

In-hand photos of Titleist’s new Vokey SM9 wedges (with insight from Bob Vokey himself)

Published

on

Titleist began tour seeding of its unreleased Vokey SM9 wedges at the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions in Maui two weeks ago, and players have already been switching in droves to the new models.

Although Titleist still isn’t yet commenting on the new designs (which will likely replace the company’s former SM8 models), GolfWRX got its first in-hand look at the new SM9 versions this week at the 2022 American Express at PGA West’s Stadium Course.

In addition to the photos, I was also able to catch up with legendary wedge maker and SM9-designer Bob Vokey himself. While tech details are still under wraps for the time being, he provided some awesome insight into his two-year design process.

“It takes us two years to put a product together…what happens every time is you make an improvement based on feedback from all the players,” Vokey told GolfWRX. “This is my 10th iteration of launching over the years, and each one I’ve learned something, from my series 200s, to SM1s, 2s, 3s, etc., you learn a little bit each time.

“What happens is you don’t know really how to improve it until we get it in the players’ hands, like we’re doing now, and that’ll take a few months when the players first take it live. Because there’s things that may happen on a certain shot under the heat of the gun on the backside Sunday afternoon. They hit a shot and go, ‘Whoa, what happened?’ There’s certain little things that nobody could ever see at all, and we’ve done so much testing, but you can’t replicate the human element under the heat of the gun. Then someone will tell me something, or they’ll tell Aaron [Dill] something, and we’ll bring it back to the wedge team. We can change that, work on that, modify it, get it right, without mucking up all that we have. That’s how we improve. “

For Vokey, player feedback is extremely important, and it starts with keeping a similar profile from address. As Vokey says, you don’t want to “muck up” something that works.

“We sit there and scratch our heads and get together and say, something’s been working so good, it’s tour-proven for so many years, you know, so if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it… retain the same profile, it’s so very important…a pro will come up and say, ‘What do you got Voke?’ Boom, they put it down right away. Then they hold it up and say, ‘What’s the bounce?'”

Speaking of bounce, and how the profile looks from address, GolfWRX got a look at a number of different lofts, grinds and bounce options at the 2022 American Express this week.

Below is a taste of what the Vokey SM9s look like in-hand, but make sure to click here for all of our photos.
