SPOTTED: Rickie Fowler’s unreleased Cobra King Tour irons in Napa

Published

on

Rickie Fowler showed up at Silverado Resort and Spa on Tuesday ahead of the 2022 Fortinet Championship with a new set of unreleased Cobra King Tour prototype irons (4-PW) in the bag.

During an interview with GolfWRX, Fowler revealed he’s switching into the new irons this week after testing three different models of irons: an MB (muscleback), a CB (cavity back), and the King Tour that he had in the bag Tuesday.

“[Cobra Tour Rep Ben Schomin] and the guys built me up a few new sets. Some of our new MBs, a CB, and then a King Tour. These ones are definitely bigger than what I’m used to, but I was also excited to hit them to see…I knew they were going to be more forgiving, but I also wanted to make sure the numbers were as consistent, make sure there wasn’t going to be any higher spin, or lower spin depending on contact.

“I took them out, did a day of testing between the MB, CB and the King Tour. I saw one with a wider sole a little more bounce in the front half. Super clean and quick through the turf. Numbers were very consistent, all the lofts and lies were the same, so I wasn’t using different lofts. All the numbers as far as distances – everything you look at as far as when you’re testing irons. They were very consistent.

“One of the things that I did like and what I saw, mishits a little off center, or a little low on the face, or heel-toe bias, really stable. Especially the ones a groove or two low, the misses weren’t as short. I’d see some, if I hit the MB or the CB a little thin, distances could drop anywhere from 7, 8, 9 yards. I was seeing these more in the 4, 5, 6 [range]. A few yards here and there can make a big difference.

“Overall, I just saw more forgiveness, but at the same time, keeping the characteristics that I want with flight and spin. We’re going to give them a go.

“Cavity backs have been in and around every once in a while, but I’ve been primarily blades or MBs. Always have loved the look and the feel, but if I’m able to basically get still a great look, really good feel with these. It feels like there’s a lot of mass behind it, but at the same time get a little more forgiveness, why make it harder on yourself?”

    He needs forgiving clubs hes in a real slump right now. Those clubs look like a good match for me Mr. 10 handicap.

    Well, at least that sounds a bit smarter then when he produced the ultra thin copper blades he himself ditched in no time. Maybe this time he will switch gear less often than his socks..

      Those rev33 blades were the beginning of his downfall.

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond driver

Published

on

GolfWRX’s resident Club Junkie, Brian Knudson, puts the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond driver to the test in our new Three Swing Challenge.

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf, told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2, and discounted No. 3, because the player was starting to adjust.”

This is in line with our experience, and we believe golfers can make a meaningful judgment about a club in just a few swings.

Let us know what you want to see in the challenge next!

What’s your 3-wood? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about their 3-woods. WRXer ‘Kdgolf’ is on the hunt for a new 3-wood, and our members have been sharing their suggestions as well as making arguments for their current gamer.

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.

  • phizzy30: “Still have my OG SIM ti.  It’s very hot off the face, mid launch, low spin.  Great off the tee, but you need some speed off the deck to make it come to life.  Qi10 tour is also another good one I tested and numbers were very similar to the SIM ti but it launched slightly higher.”
  • knudson81: “Cobra Darkspeed LS 3+ and add a Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 70. Absolute monster.”
  • adamwon84: “I have the AI Smoke Max 3 wood (15 degrees) and it might be the easiest club to hit from a tee or off the deck that I have ever had (when it comes to a 3 wood that is) and the distance is pretty fantastic.”
  • runningblind11: “Taylormade fairways always work best for me, I need a deeper face.  All in the last 5 years are good, but I really like the look of the Qi10 this year.   I have a 3HL and a 7 in the bag now.”
