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.

What GolfWRXers are saying about PXG drivers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing PXG drivers. WRXer ‘Kman7218’ is looking at low spin options and wants know how PXG drivers stack up against the very best, and our members have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • 03trdblack: “The 0211 driver is by far the best value for what you get on the market right now in my opinion as it’s just a forgiving, good looking and easy to hit driver that gives great distance for cheap. It has a quieter, more baseball bat sound to it than the metallic sound you get with most drivers.  The Gen 5 driver is a drastic improvement to the Gen 4 in terms of feel/sound and looks.  I’ve been using the Gen 5 off and on and it’s neck and neck with anything else I’ve used on the market today.  It also looks fantastic at address as it looks like a dark version of the original TaylorMade SIM and I’m super happy they brought back the toe weight since my miss is left.”
  • Proof: “Playing a Gen 5 0311 w/ Tour AD IZ6 and absolutely love it.  Last PXG driver I tried before this was the Gen 2 and wasn’t a fan but the current offerings are great.”
  • golfnhack: “I BIG NAY for me. They just don’t perform (IMHO). Also… if they did.. all the equipment free agents on the PGA tour would use them. I think I only know of 1 player on the PGA tour using a PXG driver… and he is a staffer. Most PXG staffers don’t even use a PXG driver.”
  • dmeeksDC: “The Gen 5 driver is outstanding, as good as any driver going and better than most. Have one with a Paderson Velocity shaft. Very long and forgiving, highly adjustable, sounds great. Delivers excellent performance.”

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.
