And there it is! Adam Scott confirmed via his official Instagram account that he’s switching into the new custom Miura irons this week at the 2022 Memorial Tournament.

Adam Scott showed up on Wednesday for his pro-am with only the custom Miura irons in his bag. Speaking with Adam Scott on Tuesday evening following his practice round, Scott revealed that he’s testing the custom Miura irons because of the difference in sole design:

“Really it’s the sole design that’s the difference,” Scott said. “It’s just a little less bounce. They’re a little flatter and wider on the sole.

“My eye for a blade is very different than most of the stock blades that are being made by the companies today. I grew up with offset, which is almost a thing of the past. Even in larger headed irons these days, there’s little offset out here. But I like it, and it’s hard to find. Titleist made me an amazing set of 681.AS irons that had the offset and were pretty much like the clubs I were using (the Titleist 680 Forged). And this set was made with the idea of less bounce than those.”

He said that based on stats on different turf conditions, he thinks the flatter soles with less bounce may be helpful.

“Getting into the nerdy, nerdy stuff like looking into stats on different turf conditions throughout the years, potentially there’s a better balance point with the bottom,” Scott told GolfWRX.com. “I had contacted Miura to see if they could make a set of clubs with my aesthetic looks. I hit one of their other irons, (the MB-101) that had that sole, and I asked if they’d build something with that sole, and they said, ‘Yes.’”

The original story posted on May 30:

On Monday ahead of the 2022 Memorial Tournament presented by Workday, GolfWRX shot a full WITB with Adam Scott. In the bag, he still had a full set of custom 1-of-1 Titleist 681.AS irons, which were an upgraded version of the Titleist 680 irons that he’s used throughout his career.

On Tuesday, however, he brought out a whole new set of custom 1-of-1 irons with his logo on them to test on the range, and out on the course.

Speaking with Scott, I learned that he asked multiple companies to make him custom irons, and these new versions were the first to arrive. He says they’re made by Miura, and they’re designed to his preferences.

When I asked him if they’re a Miura model that’s in their lineup or whether they’re designed more like the 680’s, he said they’re “more like the 680’s.”

When I asked him why he chose Miura, he said, “They just make good irons.”

He doesn’t know for sure whether they’ll go into play this week in competition, but he’s putting them through the paces today. We’ll update you with more information as it becomes available.

    While nice, it’s not the irons Adam. Your driving is horrible.

    Now that you can choose, get back out the 905 or 915.

SPOTTED: Cleveland RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open

Published

on

New golf equipment was showing up left and right on Monday at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

In addition to launching new ZX7 MKII irons, Cleveland-Srixon also brought out new RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges for PGA Tour players to test for the first time.

While we don’t yet have details on the new wedges yet, based on the overall aesthetics, nomenclature, and design of the wedge, it appears the new RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges could be set to replace Cleveland’s previous RTX ZipCore models.

Speaking with GolfWRX recently, Cleveland Product Manager Casey Shultz explained what the former RTX ZipCore wedges were all about:

“RTX ZipCore is designed for the better player with a well-developed short game that can take advantage of the added versatility the line brings to improve their shot-making capabilities around the greens, while still experiencing added forgiveness and consistency over what can typically be found in a blade wedge.”

“RTX ZipCore is the first product we introduced with our ZipCore technology, a low-density material within the hosel that helps to shift the CG and raise MOI, adding spin, enhancing control, and boosting consistency all within a traditional blade style shape. This wedge also has the newest Rotex face design with the sharper, deeper, and closer UltiZip grooves for maximum spin performance. On top of this, a new heat treatment process has been added to ensure these grooves stay sharp and this spin continues round after round.”

While we don’t know exactly what the new “6” is referencing, it could possibly mean these wedges are the sixth edition of “RTX” wedges, since the Cleveland RTX 4 wedges came out in 2018, and the company followed those up with the RTX ZipCore wedges in 2020.

Also, Shultz briefly explained the continued benefits of the Tour Rack program:

“Tour testing and feedback has a big influence on the design of our wedges, especially when it comes to grind offerings and appearance at address. We constantly are making modifications to the grinds for tour players and take notes of what works and what doesn’t and work this feedback in to future designs as well as custom grinding options available in our Tour Rack program.”

It appears that Cleveland’s Tour Rack has helped produced a new offering of RTX 6 ZipCore wedges, which we spotted at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open below.

2023 Titleist Pro V1 golf balls secretly began tour seeding last week

Published

on

We’re used to seeing new equipment at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and indeed it’s the tournament at which Titleist has begun tour seeding for the next iteration of the Pro V1 golf ball in the past. This year, however, staffers apparently couldn’t wait until Vegas and “tour validation,” Titleist’s term for the process of tour seeding and feedback, actually began at last week’s Sanderson Farms Championship.

According to Titleist, Garrick Higgo, M.J. Daffue, and Gary Woodland, who had tested prototype versions of the 2023 Pro V1 and Pro V1x, were clamoring to put the balls in play. Higgo (Pro V1), Daffue (Pro V1x), and Woodland (Pro V1x) became the first three players to game the 2023 models in competition.

This week, Titleist Golf Ball R&D reps Fordie Pitts and Jeff Beyers will be fitting players at TPC Summerlin.

2023 Titleist Pro V1

Jordan Spieth had this to say about the development process behind the new Pro V1.

“The Pro V1 and ProV1x, as a whole, are the best balls in golf so it’s hard to say, ‘How are you going to possibly make that ball better when it’s already the best?’” said Jordan Spieth. “I think when you think of anything being the best, you’re really going against yourself then. You’re trying to beat your former self versus worrying about the competition. And I think Titleist does that. They continue to push being the best and continuing to stay No. 1 – and that’s a really difficult thing to do.”

2023 Titleist Pro V1x

Reigning Masters champion, Scottie Scheffler, described the paces he’ll be putting the new Pro V1 through:

“First thing I’ll always do is take them to the short game area. For me, that’s always the most important. From there I’ll go to the range and just look at numbers, carry, stuff like that. From there, I’ll go out on the course and just start hitting shots. So same thing I do in the short game area, have a few of my ball, have a few of the new ball and just try and hit the same shot and see how the ball reacts, see what it does in the wind and just go from there.”

“One shot that I’m always practicing is when I take some off of it. I need to see that it’s still the same (distance) gaps between my full shot and when I’m taking some off of it. When I’m practicing on the driving range, if I have a little mishit or if a shot doesn’t feel right…I usually have a really good feel for how far it actually carried. If my stock wedge is 140 and I’m trying to hit at 135, and maybe I catch a little bit off and I’m like, ‘man that really feels like 132,’ if it goes that distance, that’s really important to me. And that gives me a lot of faith in what that golf ball’s going to do.”

Stay tuned to GolfWRX for more on the 2023 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x.

New Ping G430 drivers hit USGA Conforming List

Published

on

On Monday morning, Ping’s G430 lineup of drivers landed on the USGA Conforming List.

In apparent keeping with the G425 line breakdown — low spin, maximum MOI, draw-biased — the family looks to include the G430 LST, Max, and SFT drivers, all of which feature both right-handed and left-handed models.

Per the description on the USGA site, the LST driver contains a “carbonfly wrap” crown, with each new driver also featuring a weight port for adjustability and an apparently forged face ala the G425’s T9S+ forged face. This would suggest Ping may be implementing a carbon fiber crown and deviating from titanium.

Ping had no additional comment on the G430 drivers at this point, but with the clubs now deemed “conforming,” we wouldn’t be surprised to see them on the PGA Tour at this week’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

As well as the new lineup landing on the USGA Conforming List, GolfWRXers have spotted the new drivers on social media, with some photos appearing to show the new driver in a black/gray/yellow colorway.

Here’s what our members have been saying about the new additions from Ping in our forum, but make sure to check out the entire thread at the link below and have your say.

  • MakersMarsh3: “Sound and feel are AWESOME. The carbon fiber and crown are more of a grey to me??? Has the slight 2 tone to it. The 3W wood seems to be the biggest improvement.  I have a hard time looking down on them and I thought it looked sweet.”
  • belh22: “Love the color scheme personally.”
  • m9: “The head looks to be an MOI beast, and the tungsten weight at the back appears to be smaller than that of the G425.”
