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.

Wait, what?! Check out Spencer Levin’s WILD new putting technique and obscure putter from 2004

Published

on

Spencer Levin is already a folk hero in the golf world, and his legend is likely to grow this week thanks to a new putting technique he’s implementing – and he’s using the technique with a putter from 2004 that he found in his dad’s shed.

On Tuesday ahead of the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open, GolfWRX.com spotted Levin – who qualified for the event via Monday qualifier – using a hammY putter, which was released to the public in 2004. A quick Google search reveals that the putter is currently being sold for $119.95 at intheholegolf.com.

According to the product description of the hammY putter, it’s built with a longer length (37-38.5 inches), a split grip, and a triple-bend, center shaft construction. It’s designed to be used with a hands-spread grip and a 45-degree open stance, with the ball played back in the stance to allow for a natural forward press and better view of the line.

LPGA player Natalie Gulbis actually first made the putter famous by winning with it in 2007, and now Levin is bringing the design to the PGA Tour 15 years later.

GolfWRX caught up with Levin on Tuesday in Las Vegas to get the backstory of how the hammY ended up in his golf bag:

“I’m going split grip. That’s the way I think it says you’re supposed to use this putter. I think when they designed it they wanted you to tuck your arm in and stand open with it, and use your right hand only, but I know that’s illegal now so I’m just taking my arm off [my chest].

“The only reason I tried it was because I was fooling around with a short putter and I was just gripping way down the shaft, and I was starting my short putts on line. So then I remember, it’s funny, this [putter] came out of my dad’s shed. He’s had this putter for like 30 years. I remembered he had it, and I went to fool around with it, and the first day I used it I made 11 birdies with it. Ever since then I been using it, so. Hopefully I keep it rollin.”

Wait, so Levin really found this hammY putter in his dad’s shed, and he’s using it to play in a PGA Tour event?

“I knew he had this putter in the past, and it was kinda similar to what I was messing around with, you know?” Levin said. “And then I just grabbed it and put a new [SuperStroke] grip on it…the first time I used it was in a Monday for Napa, and I putted good, and I used it yesterday, and I putted good yesterday. So it’s just kinda, something I been using…ever since I’ve used it, I haven’t even thought about using a different putter. Whereas before I was changing putters everyday.”

The rest of his bag setup is just as legendary as his putter, too. Most notably, he’s using TaylorMade Burner TP fairway woods (which were originally released in 2007), and he’s using them with stock shafts. He’s also using a headcover made by Seamus Golf that’s inspired by “The Dude” character in the 1998 movie The Big Lebowski – if you haven’t seen the movie, then “obviously you’re not a golfer.”

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.”
