Justin Thomas spotted testing Titleist T200 2-iron at St. Andrews

Published

on

The conditions at the Old Course at St. Andrews are firm and windy ahead of the 150th Open Championship, and with sunshine in the forecast until Friday, it’ll only continue to get faster.

To battle the conditions, GolfWRX’s early observations show players are testing long iron and driving iron options to replace higher-launching fairway woods. Marc Leishman, for example, told me on Saturday that he’s using a 2-iron for the first time in “awhile,” but he wants something that can flight lower and with more control than his usual 5-wood or 7-wood.

2022 PGA Champion Justin Thomas appears to be considering a similar switch.

In his typical bag setup, Thomas uses a Titleist TSi3 driver, a TS3 3-wood, a 915 Fd 5-wood, and a mixed iron set consisting of a T100 4-iron and custom 621.JT MB irons (5-9).  

When he showed up to St. Andrews for a practice round with Tiger Woods on Sunday prior to Open week, however, Thomas also had a T200 2-iron in the bag. The early word from Titleist is that he’s deciding between the 5-wood and 2-iron.

With three days of testing left before The Open begins on Thursday, Thomas hasn’t made a concrete decision, but we’ll keep an eye on his bag throughout the week to see what he decides.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.

Published

on

Bettinardi has today unveiled the addition of the BB28 to its BB series line.

The BB28 features Aggressive Flymill face milling designed to give the putter a responsive, yet soft feel off the putter head, and offers a full-flange design, which provides greater perimeter weighting and higher M.O.I.characteristics.

This latest addition uses a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finishing technology, which is a thin, yet resilient coating that shows off the mill marks in an artisan way.

Each BB Series putter is one-piece milled from 303 Stainless Steel, which is the same blend of material preferred by all Bettinardi Tour staffers, with the metal offering a more durable, responsive, and solid feeling putter for optimal performance.

Bettinardi have also launched the center shaft BB28 putter featuring a 1/4 toe-hang wide-body blade, as well as a BB28 Armlock containing a near-face-balanced wide-body blade.

The BB28 model is available for pre-order at Bettinardi.com ($430) from November 22nd and at retail on January 22nd.
