Coolest thing for sale in the GolfWRX Classifieds (5/25/22): Scotty 009 Beach Oil Can putter

Published

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 Scotty 009 Beach Oil Can putter.

From the seller (@CasualLie): “Scotty 009 Beach Oil Can, 34”, just back from the Studio Spa to get a new CT grip/shaft and COA.  Oil can refinishes are not an option so putter head was left alone.  Overall great condition, it was a light gamer so do not expect “new” condition.  009 oil cans are pretty tough to find, especially without crazy stampings.  Comes with used CT FTUO cover.  $5500.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Scotty 009 Beach Oil Can putter

This is the most impressive current listing from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Phil Mickelson makes a couple of interesting equipment changes for LIV Golf’s Portland event

Published

on

For many years, golf fans watched Phil Mickelson using what may have been one of the shortest putters on tour, but while he won the PGA Championship with his trusty Odyssey Milled Blade “Phil Mickelson” he’s been tinkering with the length for a while.

Last September at the Fortinet Championship, Phil was spotted with a new, extended, grip on the flat stick, allowing him to create an ‘arm-lock’ style that made him feel as if, “I’ll get on a roll and just start making a lot.”

So to this week’s LIV tournament at Pumpkin Ridge, and the six-time major winner is experimenting once again.

Twitter’s ‘Phil Mickelson Tracker’ posted a photo of his extended putter with the one-word exclamation “#Armlock!”

The replies were mostly positive, suggesting it can only help the three-time Masters champion improve past some poor putting stats. Indeed, since a standout gain of over 12 shots putting at Kiawah Island, Lefty has lost strokes to the field in nine of his last 12 recorded starts, with his worst performance being a loss of over ten shots at the BMW Championship last August. No wonder he lobbed on the extra rubber at Napa.

With his Callaway deal on hold, Mickelson has also made a change in his wedges.

Lefty has a Ping Eye2 wedge in the bag this week, with the model being an Eye2 XG (a reproduction of the original Eye 2 but with 2010 conforming grooves) which he has used occasionally since 2014. 

Mickelson sits T30 after the opening day’s action in Portland, after shooting a disappointing round of 3 over par on Thursday.

Any scratch guys use a 56 degree as their highest lofted wedge? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedges. WRXer ‘MrYank’ kicks off the thread by explaining his thinking in using a 56-degree wedge as his highest lofted option, saying:

“Been debating this for a while. Use a 56 for 99% of shots around the green, and the 60 basically only for bunker shots, but I feel like I can get similar results with 56. The MG3 TW 56 grind is as versatile as I’ve seen and feels like opening up the blade has effectively the same playability/purpose as a 60. Could see the same logic for M/D grind, C grind, etc…

Anyone game a versatile 56 + nothing above that?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts and experiences 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.

  • Nessism: “A “scratch guy,” if they truly deserve the denotation, could play just about any clubs and score well. That said, very few players on that level wouldn’t carry a lob wedge of some sort. Bottom line, play what you are comfortable with. It doesn’t matter what others use, scratch or otherwise.”
  • Hammergolf: “The best wedge player in the history of the game only used a 56*. Seve.”
  • jomatty: “There are plenty of tour players that use a 58 as their highest lofted wedge, so it is difficult for me to believe that you need more than that to play on fast greens.”
  • llamont: “My good friend carried a 56* wedge as his highest lofted club. He was close to scratch/passed the PAT/and he was in the PGA apprentice program at one point. Younger guy too…. He learned the game from old-timers who didn’t encourage the lob wedge.”
