Adam Scott speaks on new L.A.B. “Mezz.1 Proto” putter at the 2022 WM Phoenix Open



For 2022, Adam Scott is no longer a full Titleist staffer, but he still has a golf ball, glove, and shoe deal.

When he showed up to the 2022 Waste Management Phoenix Open, I was curious to see if he’d have any new gear in the bag due to the new deal, and whether he changed out his 1-of-1 custom Titleist 681.AS irons. As it turns out, Scott has stuck with the new irons, and has 13-of-14 Titleist clubs in the bag.

Make sure to check out his full bag here in the forums.

“I’m not changing much, or need to,” Scott told GolfWRX. “I’m happy with my setup.”

The lone club in the bag that isn’t Titleist, though, is a new L.A.B. Golf Mezz.1 Proto putter that Scott put in play last weekend at the Dubai Desert Classic.

Scott, who prefers to use a long putter in the broomstick style, has experimented with L.A.B.’s original Directed Force putter design in the past, and he used an Armlock version of the original Directed Force head for multiple rounds in Dubai.

This is a new design from L.A.B. that’s a bit sleeker in profile, however.

This week at the 2022 Waste Management Phoenix Open, GolfWRX caught up with Scott to see what’s in his bag, and learn a bit about the new putter.

“I think they’ve refined their design with this new head,” Scott said. “The original head, that Directed Force, maybe was hard for a lot of people to adjust to the size of the head, and this new [Mezz.1 Proto] is smaller, but has the same benefits…I thought the technology in the original was good, but now with the new head design, it feels, looks, does all the things better than the original head for me…I’m looking forward to a week on pure greens to see what happens.”

L.A.B. putters are different than other putters on the market, because they’re engineered to have Lie Angle Balance, which is designed to help reduce torque throughout the stroke.

Scott’s new Mezz.1 Proto putter, in particular, has a raw aluminum finish and has 20 weights in the sole to ensure the head is properly weighted for broomstick and armlock versions.

    Stopped being a fan of AS when he kept the anchoring broomstick

    I have the standard Mezz. The eventual broomstick release is my next putter, can’t wait for us normal folk to get a chance to own one!!! That head looks killer in the raw metal look. I need to take a cold shower.

    And if you haven’t tried putting broomstick, get on it!! Much easier on the back, and feels totally different than standard putting.

    Grab the remote upon first sigting of any broomstick. Total disgrace.

WITB Time Machine: Tiger Woods, 2017 Hero World Challenge



Following a 10-month layoff and his then-fourth back surgery, Tiger Woods teed it up at the 2017 Hero World Challenge. Tiger finished 9th in the event, 10 strokes behind Rickie Fowler, but the 15-time major champion also gave fans some glimpses of his former dominance, including this majestic 3-wood approach shot from 271 yards out on a par 5:

He also had an amazing chip in for birdie on the 17th hole:

Tiger’s driver was also excellent that week, and his overall stats were pretty impressive in his second round: Woods hit 9 of 13 fairways, 13 of 18 greens and 27 putts. 31-37=68.

Woods was expected to return to action at this week’s competition — making his first start since The Open Championship in July where he missed the cut. However, he announced Monday he was withdrawing owing to plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
