  • Is this TaylorMade putter insert threatening the Scotty Cameron putter line? We all knew the TaylorMade Spider Tour was approved by World No. 1 players like Jason Day and Dustin Johnson. However, maybe it’s the insert and not necessarily the shape of the head that had brought them success. The Pure Roll insert by TaylorMade really gets the ball rolling, no pun intended. If you Youtube putter fitting videos, you will learn how important it is to get the ball rolling after impact, and not skipping. Scotty Cameron claims that immediate ball rolling makes the ball push into the ground, […]

  • We are noticing a significant putter trend on tour. The greatest players in the world are making a switch to the most important club in the bag. We have already talked in the past about players switching from blades to putters, but all these mallets have something very in common. In my opinion, the most three most popular mallet heads players are using are the TaylorMade Spider Tour, the Scotty Cameron X7 shape, and the Odyssey #7S. The secret? Tour players have these putter head shapes, but with a SLANT NECK HOSEL. The first putter we have seen with this […]

  • As time goes on, we are seeing a constant trend with tour players: THEY WANT FORGIVENESS TOO! In the past, many of the best players in the world always wanted the small size, most unforgiving club to hit. Some said it was the way it looked that helped the performance, but the stats never added up. In the shop, we always hear amateurs reiterating what the old school tour pros want: “The tour version please.” “I just can’t get over how big it is at address.” “I’m not really looking for forgiveness.” If you’re not shooting under par consistently, you […]

  • Most golf fanatics are fast to generalize PGA Tour players as long hitters. They think that the reason why PGA Tour players are successful is their 300+ yard drives, which allows shorter irons into green, which means more control, which means more birdies… right? WRONG. Have you seen Jordan Spieth play?!?! Every time he is playing with another top player, his tee shot is always the shortest one. Jordan is 95th in driving distance with 291.7 yards. This means Spieth has to be sharper with the other side of his golf bag, his wedges and putter. Now, most Spieth fans […]

  • Yesterday Jordan Spieth captured his 3rd major championship just shy of his 24th birthday. The championship marked his 11th professional win making him the only person other than Tiger Woods to have 10+ wins before 24. He is also the only player other than Jack Nicklaus to win 3 majors before turning 24. **Its normal that Spieth uses a stiffer Project X 6.5 for his irons and more flexible Project X 6.0 for his 46, 56 and 60 degree wedges. But what is really ineteresting is that Spieth uses a Project X 6.5 shaft for his 52 degree wedge. He […]

  • There are golfers that do not get technical, and there are others that do. We all have met that player that gets intricate with their game, but really has no business doing so. If Bryson DeChambeau was not on the PGA Tour, you would think he is a nut job. The physics major has broken his golf swing to a science. With all the available swing analyzers, DeChambeau wanted to make the game easier. Most advanced golfers are aware that each club is swung differently, due to the different lengths. What Bryson DeChambeau has done is take out the different […]

  • I have never seen a tour player go through so many company changes so rapidly. Rory Mcilroy turned pro in 2007, and debuted on the PGA Tour in 2008. When he was first on tour he was playing with Titleist, driver to putter (Scotty Cameron). At this point in his career, his putting skills were being compared to the one and only Tiger Woods. With a Scotty Cameron 009, Rory was shaking things up on the PGA Tour. Why would he change a thing? In 2013, Mcilroy signed a deal with the big swoosh, Nike. This forced him to make […]

  • Watching the U.S. Open this weekend, you might have noticed new faces at the top of the leader board. Five players in the top ten were chasing after their first major win on the PGA Tour. You might feel sorry for those that came up a little short, but you shouldn’t. This years U.S. Open prize money was record breaking with Brooks Koepka earning $2.16 million with a $400,000 bonus. TaylorMade staffer, Brian Harman, tied for second with Hideki Matsuyama splitting $1.3 million. $650, 000 in one weekend is nothing to pout about. Here is what Brian Harman used to […]

  • Here’s what Brooks Koepka’s bag looks like at the moment. I find it odd that he carries a pitching wedge as well as a 48* Vokey SM5 wedge. The Mizuno JPX 900 Tour must go too far for standard loft gapping. He putts with a beautiful button-back Scotty Cameron and plays with Taylormade woods. I think that Brooks will sign a new equipment contract very soon and capitalize on his first major victory. Driver: 2016 TaylorMade M2 (9.5 degrees) Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana D+ 70TX 3-Wood: TaylorMade M2 Tour 2017 (15 degrees) Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana D+ 80TX Utility: Nike Vapor Fly […]

  • Jason Dufner leapt out ahead of the field with a pair of 65’s the first two rounds of the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio this weekend. He was able to survive a 5-over 77 on Saturday by keeping his nerves and putting stroke in check on Sunday for a redeeming round of 68. The wildly expressive Dufner (rolls eyes) received the congratulatory handshake from Jack Nicklaus for a job well-done after sinking a 30+ footer for par on the 72nd hole to win the tournament. Here are the tools he used to win the Memorial: Driver: Titleist 917D2 (10.5 degrees) […]
