Details on Justin Thomas’ gas station putter pickup

Published

on

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from a piece our Andrew Tursky originally wrote for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report detailing how Justin Thomas acquired his new Scotty Cameron putter. Head over there for the full article.

…Thomas was texting with Paul Vizanko (Director of Scotty Cameron Putter Fitting and Player Development), and Thomas explained what he was thinking, seeing and feeling on the putting greens of late. Thomas is currently ranked 159th in Strokes Gained: Putting on the PGA TOUR, so maybe it was time for a change.

After hearing Thomas’ thought processes, Vizanko suggested that Thomas might actually like a custom putter build that he previously made for Sargent.

Gordon Sargent’s custom Cameron.

Sargent is entering his Senior year at Vanderbilt University, but he’s no ordinary college student. He’s currently the No. 1-ranked Men’s amateur golfer in the world according to the World Amateur Golf Rankings, and he’s already competed in four PGA TOUR events, including the 2023 Masters and the 2023 U.S. Open. He also won the 2022 Men’s Division I Individual Championship.

Thomas, who says he has gotten to know Sargent in recent years, reached out to Sargent via text prior to the Memorial.

Thomas needed a putter, and Sargent – according to Vizanko – might have his answer.

Since Sargent and Thomas live within driving distance to each other in Alabama, they met up at a local gas station to make the hand-off.

“I texted Gordon [about using the putter], and he said he wasn’t using it, so I could have it,” Thomas told GolfWRX.com on Wednesday at Muirfield Village Golf Club. “I’ve gotten to know Gordon some…so we met up at a gas station to make the transfer.”

    +11 in the US Open..time to return that POS.

    There was a story about a golfer who told his wife a guy was selling the perfect driver, and he had to buy it. The wife asked, If the driver is so perfect, why is the guy selling it …

    That oughtta’ do it. That’s COMPLETELY different than every other Anser2 rip-off from the last 40 years.

      Your comment made me laugh out loud. You are absolutely right! The Ping Anser is the gold standard of blade putters. So many imitators.

    Just another putter. Sargent is having his own putting problems. May try an Odyssey?

      He won the Players and PGA Championship after that hot mic moment. Pretty sure he’ll keep winning.

    Why is it stamped JT if it belonged to Sargent and JT just acquired it?

      Titleist tour truck – take it in to check the specs, maybe regrip and get stamped.

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

Published

on

Callaway recently released the Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Max Driver, and BK is ready to see where it stacks up in this week’s 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.”
