Wedge Stamping Caviar: Gold Medal Edition



Pop open a tin of the finest beluga, GolfWRXers…But really, it’s less jelly-like substance, more richness of intrigue than salt-cured roe at Wedge Stamping Caviar as we present to you some of the finest instances of hammer-and-stamp work on the PGA Tour we spotted this week at the WM Phoenix Open.

Grab your mother-of-pearl spoon and dig in — with restraint, please. And be sure to check out the rest of our photos from the WM Phoenix Open when you’re done.

Michael Phelps, the most-decorated athlete in Olympic history, has 28 medals stamped on his 54-degree wedge, including his record 23 golds. Legendary achievement. Legendary wedge stamping. 

Former Alabama coach Nick Saban has an entirely appropriate stamping on his Ping Glide 4.o wedge. 

Left-hander Nicolo Galleti looks to be firing himself up with his “C’mon” stamping on his Ping Glide Forged Pro wedge. Orange paintfill on the initials is a nice touch as well!

“The other Tiger” S.H. Kim has continued the tradition of stamping his wedges — now new Vokey SM10’s — with his nickname. 

Classic stamping, traditional white paintfill for Matt Wallace. If it ain’t broke…

“The Classic,” this time on a Callaway wedge with a little extra sauce in the paintfill for Mr. de Chassert. 

With all due respect to the Vokeys pictured, it’s Nico Echavarria’s PXG wedge that grabs the attention, owing to his Colombian flag-colored paintfill and “ECH” stamping. 

When you have a last name that’s only a handful of letters, it’s an easy decision to have it stamped on your wedge, as Grayson Sigg has done here with on his Fourteen RM4. 

Akron, Ohio, native Justin Lower is nothing if not loyal to the franchise that drafted the “kid from Akron.” 

“The Classic” with a little extra sauce here as Billy Horschel has the bent loft (62 degrees) of his wedge stamped near his initials. 

Check out the rest of our photos from the WM Phoenix Open.

Putters Aplenty: Flatsticks in focus at the WM Phoenix Open



This week was a great week for putters. Heck, Michael Phelps and Zac Blair’s custom Camerons established that fact by themselves. But there were plenty of other interesting flatsticks on display.

You never know exactly what you are going to get with the equipment photos from a PGA Tour event. Depending on who is where when, field size, what’s happening in the product release calendar, where the event is in the season, and of course, the weather, there are numerous variables at play.

One thing that’s a relative constant, however, is WM Phoenix Open week is a good week for gear photos. And this year was no different. We’ve already rounded up all of our photos in a table of contents here and our Tour Reporter, Andrew Tursky has provided a curation of his favorite shots with context only he can deliver.

Hence, another edition of Putters Aplenty.

Ryo Hisatsune

According to our always-in-the-know tour photographer, Hisatsune purchased this putter off the Scotty Cameron Gallery website. One of us!

Ben Taylor

The LSU alum does his work on the greens with a Scotty Cameron T-11 Proto putter with a SuperStroke 3.0 XL grip.

Garrick Higgo

Left-hander Garrick Higgo utilizes the new L.A.B. Golf DF3 putter, a TPT putter shaft, a SuperStroke Pistol GT 1.0 grip.

Billy Horschel

Billy Ho is putting in Phoenix with a PLD Anser with tungsten plugs in the heel and toe of the putter for added stability.

Michael Phelps

A custom Cameron fit for the king of gold medals! Phelps told our Andrew Tursky that the flatstick was too beautiful to putt with and he wanted to hang it on a wall. Cameron told Phelps he better use it!

Lanto Griffin

Griffin continues to roll it with his Sik Flo C putter.

Zac Blair

Leader in the clubhouse for most interesting putter this week, Zac Blair, a certifiably Cameron crazy, arrived in Phoenix with this custom Circle L Cam with a Tiffany Blue paintfill. Our Brian Knudson wrote about the putter here.

Sungjae Im

Long-time Scotty Cameron user Sungjae Im has upgraded into a new T-5.5 putter with a single siteline.

Charley Hoffman

The WM sponsee remains loyal to his T-8 Prototype Cameron with unique alignment markings on an equally unique crown.

Adriene Dumont de Chassart

The Belgian represents the Odyssey contingent this week with his new Ai-One #7 putter.
