Billy Horschel gets hilariously trolled by Justin Thomas while talking about his custom Titleist irons

Published

on

Billy Horschel and Justin Thomas have banned together recently in their loyalties to the PGA Tour, speaking out against the players who have decided to join the LIV Golf tour. Horschel had a heated press conference this week at the 2022 Genesis Scottish Open discussing the issue, and Thomas roasted Talor Gooch for his comments comparing LIV and the Ryder Cup.

In a Wednesday interview with GolfWRX, however, the pair enjoyed a bit of light-hearted fun.

As I was speaking with Horschel about the custom Titleist 620 MB irons he’s been using over the last year (and to win the recent 2022 Memorial Tournament), Thomas photobombed the interview, unbeknownst to Horschel. The moment is going viral over on GolfWRX’s Instagram and new TikTok.

Check out JT’s hilarious antics in the full YouTube video below (JT enters the scene around the 1:10 mark):

Not to be overlooked, however, there was a serious gear explanation by Horschel going on during the interview.

Here’s what he had to say about his custom irons:

“I’ve had issues over the last couple years with spin rates with certain irons being all over the map,” Horschel told GolfWRX. “Spin rates being a little too low, and then when I hit three-quarter shots, it’s really low, so a three-quarter shot goes just as far as a full shot.

“I wanted to go back to a full blade. I worked with Titleist at the Zurich last year. Unfortunately with the way my lofts are – I’ve always played a little bit stronger lofts – the irons just dug way too much for me.

“So the Titleist boys got together and put their heads together, and they actually came up with an idea. My 7 iron is a 6 iron head. If you look at it on the ground, it’s a 6 iron head. So what they did is they took a 6-iron head, bent it back to my loft, which obviously took the offset off, and added bounce. It had too much bounce, so they had to grind this little perforated edge here so this club could get in the ground a little bit and it wouldn’t bounce of the ground.”

“The Titleist boys do some great work and the irons have been really successful for me over the last year. Distance control has gotten better. Iron play has improved, so I can’t thank them enough.”

Of course, Thomas himself plays some one-off custom Titleist irons, too. At last year’s 2021 CJ Cup, Thomas debuted Titleist 621.JT irons that were constructed to have zero offset, and he used the irons to win the recent 2022 PGA Championship.

    The more I see/hear of JT, the more I like him. When he first hit the Tour, I didn’t care for him for silly reasons…I just though he had a smug, punch-able face. He’s really grown on me.

      Agreed! He’s proven himself to be quite thoughtful and he’s definitely dedicated to his craft. He’s getting better each season. Of course, being mentored by the GOAT doesn’t hurt.

Spotted: New Kirkland Signature KS2 mallet putter

Published

on

A new putter from the Kirkland Signature Series has been spotted.

After making headlines by creating a line of drivers and irons to be sold at Costco, Kirkland has seemingly jumped into the putter game as well. As shared by “theequipmentjunkie” on Instagram, the putter is a mallet style.

Costco is currently being sued by TaylorMade for the Kirkland Signature irons and claims “the iron’s design infringes on several patents tied to the company’s popular P790 iron that has a similar hollow-cavity design.” TaylorMade is also claims the product makes “false and misleading statements in violation.”
