Callaway Masters Bag! Caution – Really Awesome

Published

on

Brilliant design. Hopefully they go for the matching head covers etc and keep going with the patch designs too.

Callaway also has a limited edition US Open bag also.

Callaway say there will be a small run and limited numbers to go out to retail.

They also might come out with matching headcovers and towels for the players.

Shallow face vs deep face fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shallow faced and deep faced fairway woods. WRXer ‘Mike412’ kicks off the conversation saying:

“I’ve always preferred a deeper face but with so many manufacturers making shallow face woods the deeper face models are hard to come by, especially on the used market and even more especially 7W’s. So for those that like a shallow face, what do you like about them?”

And our members have been having their say on the subject 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.

  • CactusGolf: “Shallow-faced woods were always a problem for me, especially with the last Paradym release because I found myself making contact at the top of the face to the point of danger. Had to switch to the Paradym Triple Diamond model for the slightly deeper face and haven’t had that problem.  Made sure to loft up by at least +1* with the lower-spinning head. I don’t hit fairway woods off the deck very often due to the length of some of my courses, so the fairway wood is primarily a tee-only club.”
  • Bobb3rddown: “I like deeper faced woods. Especially out of the rough. I’ve slid under to many balls I the rough with shallow face woods.”
  • ChipNRun: “Prefer a deep face, but can handle a medium-face OK. Played with shallow-face FWs during early 2000s, but I changed my swing plane and started popping up shots, especially on tee shots. Ended up fluffing grass and putting ball atop tuft on tee shots.”

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using HL irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the benefits and downsides of playing HL (High Launch) irons. WRXer ‘jjfcpa’ kicks off the thread, asking:

“Just looking for some feedback on the advantages and disadvantages of the HL model irons that Ping (G430), Taylormade (Qi10), JPX923, and Callaway (AI Smoke HL) are now offering?

If you are a slower swing speed golfer (senior primarily I’m guessing), would you consider one of these?”

And our members have been having their say on the subject 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.

  • POKeefe: “Advantage and Disadvantage: They go higher, fly straighter, and are chunkier which can be confidence inspiring. This is ideal for a lower speed player who struggles to get the ball airborne but bad for a higher speed player who can easily balloon golf balls.”
  • Roejye: “I think it’s the ability to give you more launch. Yeah, a lower lofted iron will give you more distance, but how predictable is that if that distance is based on roll-out. Theoretically, giving someone with slightly slower swing speed with the other characteristics of a GI/SGI iron would help launch the ball better.”
  • erock9174: “I don’t think there are any disadvantages to HL irons.  It’s all about providing a fitting need.  Not everybody needs super strong lofts to win the distance battle.  While I am not quite old yet…do turn 48 this year, I have always hit the ball the same distance pretty much since I started golf 30 yrs ago.  I just have a nice easy deliberate swing and try to keep the ball in play with accuracy.  So anything stronger than a 26* 6i never works for me.  I think that is helpful going into club purchases for me.  Also hollowbody irons rarely work for me either.  I seem to generate more height and spin with cavity back irons.”

Does the wear on Tiger’s Scotty Cameron putter affect the roll in any way? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing how the wear on Tiger’s putter may or may not affect the roll of the ball. WRXer ‘NikeGolfer93’ raises the subject, saying:

“With the obsession on pure roll and having grooves on a putter, I wonder about the implications for Tiger’s putter.

It’s noticeably worn with dings all over and has a distinct mark in the sweet spot, possibly resulting in a slight concave shape. Could this affect the consistency of the roll?”

And our members have been having their say on the matter in our forum, with the vast majority agreeing that the impact would be extremely low to non-existent.

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.

  • MattM97: “It could, so could the wind, the grass, some dirt, a bug, some water, etc. A ton of things can factor the roll just have to hit your line and speed and hope for the best.”
  • brutus27: “Guys, at the end of the day, putting is an art form. You just need a repeatable stroke. Those imperfections do not affect Tigers roll or consistency. There are so many other, much larger variables related to the putting surface than those minuscule blemishes to affect consistency. Just my 2 cents.”
  • jonsnow: “I know it has that famous wear mark, but it’s not like he’s hitting bunker shots with it. Probably just worn the chrome off from number of repetitions hitting the sweet spot. I would be surprised if there is any actual concavity.”
