According to the PGA, The U.S. circuit will be partners in a new Chinese tour that kicks off with 12 tournaments in 2014. It is not new news that China has experienced tremendous growth in the sport of Golf over the past decade, so the PGA, after its first official tournament in China – the WBC-HSBC Championships, announced it was adding this satellite tour to its schedule next year. No one is quite sure how this will fit into the PGA schedule, which already has the European Tour, Web.Com Tour, Champions Tour, and lets not forget the ever growing LPGA. But one thing is for sure, any golf tour is a good one to watch!
Fujikura long dominated shaft usage on the PGA Tour but fell a little behind with some changes in product line and management in 2008. The new direction from Fujikura, including some gang-buster new wood shafts, has launched the company back to the top in driver and wood shaft count on tour in 2013. Recent winners using Fujikura shafts include: Dustin Johnson – WGC HSBC Champions – Fuel 2.0 65 X in TM SLDR 10.5 driver Fred Couples – Charles Schwab Cup Championship – Motore Speeder 6.2 Tour Spec X in TM SLDR 9.5 driver Kenny Perry – Charles Schwab Cup Winner – Motore Speeder Tour Spec 6.2 in Adams driver, Motore Speeder 6.2 in RBZ 3 wood ReMax Long drive championships – winner used a proprietary Fujikura Flywire shaft to drive it 427 yards! Come in an check out all of the new shafts including the new release of the Speeder 757 and Speeder 661!
Adams Golf’s new XTD Driver, fairway, hybrid and Forged irons are some of the best looking we have seen. All of the clubs have the slot technology that provides the highest legal CT in the industry making them consistently long. The driver feels solid and sounds good as well…better than the Super LS. Adjustable hosel in +/- 1.5 degrees. The design of the new XTD Forged iron is especially appealing: Forged feel, tungsten toe weight for stability on off-center hits and great satin finish will make this club a winner. Tested with a KBS C-Taper shaft and the feel was great. We should have all of these in our hands by November 15th.
Usually we are starting the “silly season” in golf about now. But not this year. In an effort to keep the interest level from the fans and players alike, the PGA Tour is kicking off the 2013-14 season they call the “wraparound” with the Frys.com Open at the CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, California. Check out who is playing this weekend here…
Spencer Painton followed a torrid 66 with a steady 72 on Tuesday at Murphy Creek Golf Club to take the Colorado State 5A Boys High School Championship by 2 strokes. Spencer also anchored his Regis-Jesuit team to their fourth consecutive 5A title. We have been working with Spencer since 2009 fitting and building his clubs to his specs. As most developing players, Spencer’s club specs have changed dramatically as he grew and got much stronger. Congratulations, Spencer and good luck at Kansas University next year!
Ever wondered what the tour players are using in their bag for shafts. Well, now you can look at all of the players that have won tournaments in 2013 and see what brand, model and weight of shaft they are playing. We do not have exact tip trim specifications, nor all of the shafts for every club in the bag but this is a pretty good compilation from a variety of sources. To see the report go here…
Tour Edge is always on the leading edge of technology it seems, especially in some radical designs for their fairways woods. The new CB PRO is no exception. Just hit the new CB PRO 14.5 with the Speeder 757 shaft in the shop and it feels and sounds awesome! Hotter than those popular slot-style fairway metals. No wonder Snedeker and Streelman put it in play at the BMW. The Slip Stream sole cuts through fairway and hardpan maintaining club speed for maximizing distance. If you want the new CB PRO, you had better pre-order as this Limited Edition head is on allocation. We can only get 3 heads per month! And, the new XCG7 drivers, fairways and hybrids will be arriving in late October or early November.
It has been a roller coaster ride for Henrik Stenson and now he is the FedEx Cup leader for 2013. His bag contains a mix of TaylorMade and Callaway clubs and shafts from Grafalloy and Nippon. Just goes to show what we already know…equipment needs to be personalized to your swing and clubs. From and R1 driver with a Grafalloy Blue shaft to Callaway Legacy Black irons with Nippon Modus 120X shafts, Henrik plays what works for him. And I guess 22 under is a great benchmark score! For more of Henrik’s bag….
