Is this Tiger’s next driver?

Published

on

Just in on the USGA Conforming Club List are two new Nike VR_S Covert Tour Tour drivers, called Version 3 and Version  4.

These drivers have no visible weight screw and a noticeably altered sole, especially around Nike’s FlexLoft Adaptor, which appears to be the same adaptor used on the retail models.

Has the Screw been removed in order to create more spin for a certain 14-time major champion that prefers a smaller head and more spin than most players?

    I doubt it’s Tiger’s club since it’s adjustable, and he said that he would never play one like that. I am guessing that he thinks that it would come loose.

    Not entirely true. A club can be adjusted. But once it is adjusted it is a new club and would make it 15 clubs in your bag. If you start the round with 10 clubs in your bag then you can adjust the club 4 times.

    1st point- Those of you speaking of the rules are correct, as long as the club isn’t changed DURING the round, it is legal… the same thing is true if you intentionally damage (thereby altering) a NON-adjustable club. No changes may be made DURING a round ( unless the damage was in the course of regular play, in which case the club may be replaced )..

    2nd point.. this is a BLACK AND WHITE photo. That’s why its not red.

    I agree with a couple of the other comments that this driver looks much better than the red headed version.

    I think this one will be a much better seller.

    An adjustable club is legal for USGA play so long as it is not adjusted during the stipulated round. An adjustable driver head that becomes damaged (loose) in the normal course of play, may be repaired so long as play is not delayed.

    Phil was allowed to retighten his driver on 18 at Augusta during the Masters. How did this not constitute repairing?

    I seem to remember an old rule, at least I think I do that said a golf club could have no moving parts, does this still hold true? Like I said I’m certain about it but for some reason I am thinking I either heard that or read it somewhere.

    Did Tiger get Rory off his game by causing him to switch to Nike just to take over the #1 again? 🙂

      Thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard.. Im sure he didnt do it for the millions nike gave him it was because there was a conspiracy to throw him off his game..

    I AM JUST WONDERING. I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT THE USGA RULES STATE THAT A CLUB THAT CAN BE ADJUSTED CAN’T BE USED IN TOUR. DID I MISS A RULE CHANGE???

      You cannot change the setting of a club during a round but after/between you can adjust all you want.

      An adjustable club that you never adjust is the same as one that doesn’t adjust 😉

    Looks better than the red head!

      The photo is Black & White!!! Given how much nike have focused on the new Red heads it inlikely they will move away from it so quickly, even for TW…

    Funny…these appear more “covert” than the original paint scheme anyways.

    Maybe Rory won’t hook these off the end of the earth.

Super hot driving irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about hot driving irons. WRXer ‘Russian7’ is on the hunt for a driving iron offering maximum ball speed and distance with no spin, and our members have been sharing their picks 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.

  • bcflyguy1: “From word of mouth anecdotes to testing done by other forums, think P790 UDI is as likely as anything to give you what you’re after.”
  • jblough99: “If you don’t mind em with a little junk in the trunk, look at the G425 crossover. Everything I’ve read/seen claims very forgiving and goes forever. No first-hand experience, though.”
  • Luxor54: “The exotics Ti-utility is probably up there.”
  • norsebynorsewest: “Seconded on the PXG 0311X. I play a one iron, and the thing is a utility rocket. It honestly feels like it should be illegal.”

Best Ping irons from the last 5 years – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Ping irons. WRXer ‘LowAndLeft32’ wants to hear what our members believe are the best additions from the brand over the past five years, with the i210 irons proving a popular choice.

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.

  • PEI_Golfer: “Hard pressed to beat the i210s.”
  • realmfg: “Blueprints.”
  • eric61: “Love the i210s — they’re easily the answer here, in my opinion. I really liked the i59s, too, but not as much as the i210s, and I think their price point maybe has meant a lot of people didn’t even end up trying them. G-series irons are fine too. If you’re in that segment of the market, the last few years it’s been the latest G irons vs the latest Hot Metals for the top of the pecking order, in my opinion.”
  • Cwhite912: “Easy, I210, Blueprint, iBlade.”

Easiest launching fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing easy to launch fairway woods. WRXer ‘Pete52’ hits his woods too low, and our members have been sharing their best picks to solve his problem 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.

  • JKJKJK: “I had the easiest time to elevate from the deck with G425 Max 3Wood/5Wood with Motore F3 shaft. Flies really high and easy to hit.”
  • DoughBack18: “Sim2 Ti. Has a lot of weight on the sole, and you can really launch it high. I’ve always had a slightly lower trajectory, got this in a 5 wood, and it’s worked really nicely filling the gap I had at the top end of my bag.”
  • Valtiel: “Any of the modern Pings are a good litmus test for elevation. If you can’t get those off the ground then you know the problem ain’t the club.”
