SeeMore SB1 Mallet Putter

Posted at 11:12 AM by David Dusek

Seemore_sb1 SeeMore has just released a new mallet putter called the SB1. While many putters are milled from stainless steel, SeeMore continues to go with 6061 aluminum to achieve what the company says is a crisp, solid feel.

Like other SeeMore putters, the head of the new SB1 is black, as is the lower portion of the shaft, which makes it easier to use the company's "Rifle Scope" alignment system. A red dot sits between two thin white lines on the top of the putter, and when you have positioned the putter square to your target line, no portion of the red dot will be visible to you from the address position. If you see red to the right of the shaft, the face is closed and pointed left; if red appears to the target side of the shaft, the face is open and pointed right. There's also a simple alignment line running from front to back.

The standard SB1 is center-shafted, but an offset shaft is available in the SB1w. The head is the same, but it features SeeMore's Whistle Shaft, a bent shaft, which also uses the Rifle Scope alignment system.

The head of the SB1 weighs 334 grams, but SeeMore offers customization options that can increase that weight by 24 grams for players who like a heavier putter.

The retail price for the SB1 and SB1w is $225, and they will be available in September.

More New TaylorMade Clubs Arriving Soon

Posted at 1:28 PM by David Dusek

Tm_burner_driver_08 Last week TaylorMade announced the release of the new r7 Limited driver. This week the company is releasing even more new drivers and new irons.

Designed for players who are looking to get maximum distance off the tee, the new Burner (top photo) and Burner TP drivers weigh less than 300 grams, which promotes a fast swing. Both feature what TaylorMade refers to as Dual Crown technology, which essentially means that the base of each driver's head is larger than the crown. According to TaylorMade, this allowed them to shift more weight down and into the back of the club, so it should be easier to hit a higher-flying, lower-spinning drive.

While the updated Burner will come standard with a 49-gram graphite shaft, the TP version will be available with either a 55-gram or 65-gram shaft. The face of the TP version is also slightly more open than the standard Burner, which should help fast-swinging golfers avoid hooks.

The updated Burner driver will be available Oct. 1 and will retail for $400. The Burner TP will be available March 30, 2009, and will retail for $500.

Tm_burner_irons_08 On Sept. 19 TaylorMade will release the new Burner Plus irons (middle photo). Designed as max-game-improvement clubs, these irons have extreme perimeter weighting, plenty of offset, a thin face and a very low center of gravity. All of those features are designed to help golfers get the ball off the ground easily and hit straighter, longer shots. The sole of the Burner Plus irons is also extremely wide, which should help players avoid digging.

Like the Burner drivers, the shafts of the Burner Plus irons are light and slightly longer than standard for increased swing speed.

The standard set of Burner Plus irons ($599, steel/$799, graphite) will be 4-AW ("attack" wedge), but a combo set will be available with Burner Rescue 3 and 4 hybrid clubs and 5-PW ($699 steel/$899 graphite). The standard women's set will come with 4 and 5 hybrids plus 6-AW ($699, steel/$899, graphite).

The newly updated Tour Preferred irons (lower photo) are for mid- and low-handicap players who want to work the ballTm_tp_irons_08 but need some forgiveness. The leading edge of the sole has been rounded slightly, so these irons should still work through the turf when players make an aggressive downward swing. Weight has been redistributed to the perimeter of the clubface and down, which should make the long irons slightly easier to hit. Housed within a shallow cavity behind the face is a vibration-dampening mechanism that TaylorMade says will enhance feel.

The Tour Preferred irons will be available Sept. 19 and will retail for $899.

Look for more-detailed information on all these clubs in an upcoming issue of GOLF Magazine.

Nike Victory Red Irons will be available Nov. 1

Posted at 4:57 PM by David Dusek

Nike_vr_irons Last week in The Shop, we told you how excited Paul Casey is about his new Nike Victory Red irons. Today, Nike e-mailed an official release detailing the new Victory Red family of irons. There will be three different sets of Victory Red irons available starting on November 1 — Victory Red Forged TW Blades, Victory Red Forged Split Cavity and the Full Cavity Victory Red irons. Click on the image for a better look.

As the name implies, the TW Blades ($999, 3-PW, $125 individually) are inspired by the clubs that Tiger Woods plays. Notice the little TW on the blade at far right.

They are forged from 1025 carbon steel and feature a CNC milled face and traditional muscle-back design. According to Nike, the Forged TW Victory Red Blades have a slightly thicker toe line than the original Nike Forged Blades. Woods was quoted in the release as saying, "I hope to have these new irons in my bag upon my return to competition."

If you don't have quite enough game to make Tiger's sticks work for you, Nike is also offering the Victory Red Forged Split Cavity ($999, 3-PW, $125 individually). The Split Cavity set, made from the same materials as the TW Blades, will have a slightly thicker topline and sole, as well as more offset and perimeter weighting to make them more forgiving on off-center hits.

For golfers seeking the most game improvement, Nike offers a full cavity-back version of the Victory Red irons. With a wide sole, thick topline and plenty of offset, the Full Cavity Victory Red irons are designed to help players get the ball off the ground more easily and compensate for mis-hits.

The Full Cavity Victory Red irons will be $799 in steel and $999 in graphite (4-AW). Individual clubs will be available from 2-iron through lob wedge for $135. The women's version of the Full Cavity (5-SW) will be $999 in graphite and $135 individually from 3-iron through lob wedge.

Look for more details on Nike's new irons here and in an upcoming issue of GOLF Magazine.

Vijay Singh's winning clubs at The Barclays

Posted at 1:46 PM by David Dusek

Singh_barclays_sun_600x450_2 Just when we thought that Father Time might finally be catching up with the Big Fijian, Vijay Singh won two prestigious tournaments in a month, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and last week's Barclays Championship.

With his left arm bandaged to help his ailing tendinitis, Singh defeated Sergio Garcia and Kevin Sutherland in a three-man playoff to earn his record fourth W at the Barclays.

If you click on the photo of Vijay, you'll notice a piece of lead tape on the toe of his Cleveland Launcher Steel 3-wood. When big-hitting pros miss their shots, they tend to go left. By adding weight to the toe, Singh's 3-wood will not close quite as easily through the impact area, which means Vijay can swing aggressively and know that the left-side miss is a lot less likely.

Here is a complete list of all the clubs Vijay used to win at Ridgewood:

Driver:                   Cleveland HiBore XL (9.5°)
Fairway woods:     Cleveland Launcher Steel Fairway (13°), Adams Idea a3 Boxer (19°)
Irons:                     Cleveland CG1 Black Pearl (4-P)
Wedges:                Cleveland CG12 (54°, 60°, 64°)
Putter:                  Never Compromise GM2 Exchange #7 belly
Ball:                      Titleist Pro V1x

Mahan uses new Ping IWI putter at Ridgewood

Posted at 9:26 AM by David Dusek

Ping_iwi_face_600 Anytime you hole a sand wedge from 98 yards for eagle on a par 4, it's a good day. When you do it on your very first hole, as Hunter Mahan did Thursday at Ridgewood, you know the golf gods are with you.

Mahan took advantage of near-perfect conditions to post a course-record 62 in the first round at the Barclays. He hit 79% of the fairways and 83% of the greens in regulation, but his most impressive stat was total putts -- he took only 23.

After a disappointing performance at the PGA Championship two weeks ago, Mahan put the new IWI B60 putter in his bag.

"As soon as I grabbed it, put it down, it just looked good to me," he said Thursday. "I liked the feel and have been using it the last couple of weeks. It's been feeling great. Got a pretty good feeling on these greens."

According to Matt Rollins, a Ping Tour representative, the new putters "are cast [produced in a mold] and the face has a milled 304 stainless steel piece that is set with a polymer behind it."

By setting the face in the polymer, Ping is trying to soften the feel for players who use a hard golf ball. (For a better look at the face, click on the top image.)

Ping_iwi_craze The IWI family of putters also features adjustable weights that screw into the sole and come in 12-, 20- and 28-gram versions.

Rollins does not think golfers will use the weights to set up a left or right bias, as some do with drivers that have similar systems. "But you could do that if you wanted to," he said. (For a better view of the weight system, click on the lower image.)

In  addition to the B60 model, look for Ping IWI putters in the Anser, Zing, Craz-E and Half Craz-E head designs to arrive in pro shops later this fall. And if Hunter Mahan keeps putting the way he did on Thursday, look for him on the United States Ryder Cup team in September.

Ask the Gear Doctor

Posted at 11:36 AM by Mike Helfrich

Each week in this feature, we'll tap into the expertise of our exclusive research partner, Hot Stix Golf, to answer reader questions. If you have a question for the Gear Doc, e-mail it to geardoc@hotstixgolf.com. He'll answer a few lucky readers' questions every Wednesday on GOLF.com.

Hi Doc,
Big fan of the column, it's given me a huge amount of guidance the last few months. I know you've answered quite a lot of questions about shafts recently, but I think my question is different.

I'm a relative newcomer to the game (about 1 year), and am looking to upgrade my secondhand driver to something slightly better and am struck by the number of shaft options available.

My question is this: which has greater bearing on your performance? The clubhead you use or the shaft? I'm looking for improved accuracy and have been thinking about the Wilson Staff DD6+, but would all the benefits be lost if the shaft is wrong for my swing? Conversely, if I bought a club that didn't suit my swing but had the right shaft, would that be more beneficial?

Thanks,
Brian S.

Dear Brian,
Finding the right combination of shaft and clubhead is the key to maximizing driver performance. The best way to buy a driver is to get fit for optimal launch and spin numbers with a driver head. Then use the shaft to fine-tune the launch parameters and maximize accuracy. As you go lighter in shaft weight, you will tend to give up a little accuracy but gain a little distance.

Torque is another very important variable. If you tend to hit a slice or a fade, a higher-torque shaft will help you. If you tend to hit a hook, try a lower-torque shaft.

Shaft length is another commonly overlooked element. Most stock drivers today are longer than 45 inches. Length promotes higher swing speeds, but hitting the ball solidly is still most important, so most players are better off with a shorter shaft. If your driver is built to 45 inches, try choking down an inch and see how it feels. If you start hitting more fairways without losing distance, tell everyone that you heard it from the Gear Doctor.

Dear Doc,
I'm looking into getting a new set of irons and am leaning towards either the Titleist AP1 or Titleist AP2. They are similar, but the AP2s are forged. What difference does "forging" make?

Thanks,
Lyle

Lyle,

A forged club starts as a block of metal that is hammered or smashed into its intended final form. A cast club starts as hot, liquid metal that is poured into a form. The form is then broken away, leaving the rough clubhead. Production details vary, but basically, that's the difference. The bottom line for consumers? Either process can produce outstanding golf clubs.

Dear Doc,
My swing speed is 85 mph, and I like the spin I get on Titleist Pro V1 balls around the greens and with my wedges. From my understanding, they spin a lot more than the Titleist DT Solo. Does that mean the Pro V1 will slice more on a mis-hit driver than the DT Solo?

Thanks,
Hank

Dear Hank,
The short answer is yes. The Pro V1 is a higher-spinning ball, so misses will go further offline. However, this can also work to your advantage. That spin can also help to bring the ball back toward the fairway.

If you tend to hit a ball with a lot of sidespin, I think you are better off playing a ball that spins less. It will help you keep it in play more, and that always makes the game more fun.

Gear Doc,
I currently play a Cobra LD F Speed driver with a regular flex Aldila NV shaft. I have to slow my swing down considerably to hit the ball straight and feel the club is too light for me. When I was fitted for my irons, my clubhead speed for my 6-iron was in the 90s. I was wondering whether an upgrade to the Cobra Speed Pro S or D sounds like it might be in order.

Thanks for your input,
Wayne

Dear Wayne,
I would guess that the shaft in your current driver is a little soft. The Cobra Speed Pro S or D drivers might well be a great fit for you and worth taking a look at, but if you love your current driver you might want to just look at re-shafting that. You could go with something a little heavier, or even just stiffer, and get all the performance you are looking for in the driver you already own.

Either way, you should not need to change your swing and tempo. The goal should be to maintain your tempo throughout your set, and right now it sounds like you are making an adjustment to keep you driver in play. Ultimately, when you're under the gun, it will probably let you down.

TaylorMade introduces r7 Limited driver

Posted at 11:18 AM by David Dusek

R7_limited_600 TaylorMade announced today that a new driver, the r7 Limited, will be released on September 15. Like previous r7 models, the Limited features a system of movable weights that allow golfers to change the playing characteristics of the driver. (Click on the top image for more detailed look.)

The club comes with one 16-gram weight and two 1-gram weights. Placing a 16-gram weight in the heel promotes a draw; putting it in the toe promotes a fade.

According to TaylorMade, the Limited promotes a change of up to 35 yards from side-to-side, seven yards wider than the range of the r7 SuperQuad. It is also longer from front to back than the SuperQuad, with a lower center of gravity, which TaylorMade says will make it easier to hit high, long drives. In addition, the TaylorMade r7 SuperQuad and CGB Max drivers have a draw bias, the Limited Edition has a neutral face.

R7_le_sole_600x600A special version of the r7 Limited is being made in conjunction with Patriot Golf Day, which will take place over Labor Day weekend. (Click on  bottom image  for a better look.) During that time, golfers across the United States will be encouraged to contribute $1 when they play at designated courses. All the funds will go to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides scholarships for families of soldiers who have been disabled or killed in the line of duty.

The Patriot Golf Day Web site has a complete list of all the courses participating in every state, and at those clubs you can learn more about how to get one of the few r7 Limited commemorative drivers. TayorMade is donating all the proceeds from the Patriot Golf Day version to the Folds of Honor Foundation.

The r7 Limited will cost $500.

Carl Pettersson's winning clubs

Posted at 9:33 AM by David Dusek

Pettersson_600x450 Sorry for the delay in this one, but perhaps this blog post should be filed under the heading of, "Better late than never."

Why was able to learn most of the clubs to Carl Peterson used to win last week's Wyndam championship, I was unable to determine which hybrid club he was using. Yesterday, while attending the Barclay's championship, I was able to confirm that it was, in fact, an Adams Idea Pro.

Here's a complete list of the clubs he had in his bag:

Driver                  Nike SQ Sumo2 Tour (10.5°) with Fujikura SIX shaft
Fairway woods   TaylorMade Burner TP (14.5°)
Hybrid                 Adams Idea Pro (20°)
Irons                   Nike Pro Combo (4-PW)
Wedges              Nike Forged (49°, 55°, 59°)
Putter                 Odyssey White Hot #7 Long

Casey's keen on Nike's new Victory Red irons

Posted at 3:09 PM by David Dusek

Caseys_victory_red_irons Nike is set to release its new Victory Red line of irons in November. The Victory Red family will include a set of blades for better players as well as at least one set of game-improvement cavity-backed irons.

Paul Casey started using the new irons at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. "I rarely change," he said Wednesday at Ridgewood Country Club. "The blades I had in before the VRs were the exact same blades I'd been using since I joined Nike back in 2005."

The irons that Casey has in his bag this week at the Barclays Championship were made especially for him. "They are ground especially for me, and the sole is ground so that it cuts through the turf the way that I like," he said.

Going with the Victory Reds was not a difficult choice for Casey. "In terms of my switch, it was pretty much nothing, which is a nice thing. And I'm not changing anything else. I've still got the same golf ball, the same shafts, the same lofts and lie angles."

Casey said he gained about three yards with each club. When he mentioned the change to Nike's Rick Nichols in Akron, Ohio, he got a pleasant surprise. "Rick said, 'When Tiger tested them earlier in the year, he felt the exact same thing.' So that made me feel really good!"

Going forward, Casey plans to put more and more Victory Red clubs into his bag. "When we start to bring out some of the half-cavity and full-cavity stuff, I can start to think about putting some of that stuff in as my long irons." Many Tour pros carry cavity-back long irons and blade short irons.

"I still carry an old Pro-Combo oversized 2-iron, which I love. I think it's one of the best clubs they've ever made. That is hard to get out of my hands, but at some point I think that it's going to go and be replaced with some Victory Red cavity stuff."

Look for more information on Nike's new Victory Red irons here and in an upcoming issue of GOLF Magazine.

Sergio Garcia's PGA championship clubs

Posted at 9:33 PM by David Dusek

Sergio_pga_sunv_600x450 Losing the 2008 PGA championship to Padraig Harrington won't hurt as much as losing the 2007 British Open at Carnoustie for Sergio Garcia. After all, Sergio didn't watch one of his putts lip out on the final hole that would have won the tournament. He played his heart out, but it still has to hurt.

Sergio did a fantastic job of using his driver to hit knockdown shots below the blustering winds at Oakland Hills on Sunday. It's a tricky shot, but when you've got some of the best hands in the game, it can useful.

The golf ball Garcia uses helped him pull it off. While most amateur golfers would be better served by a ball with a lot of spin, which helps maximize hang time and distance off the tee, Garcia uses the TaylorMade Red LDP. The LPD stands for Low-Drag Performance, and according to TaylorMade, it is especially good in windy conditions. By playing the ball back in his stance, and limiting his follow-through, Garcia was able to produce a lower trajectory on tee shots.

Garcia is a feel player, and his clubs are old-school. While more and more players are migrating to cavity-backed irons, Garcia is still swinging blades. And here's a little tidbit the guys in the TaylorMade van have told me: Sergio grinds his own wedges. That means he literally shapes the bounce to his liking using a sanding wheel. Talk about taking equipment matters into your own hands!

Here's a list of the clubs Sergio used at Oakland Hills during the 2008 PGA championship:

Driver                  TaylorMade Tour Burner TP (9°)
Fairway woods     TaylorMade Burner TP (14.5°), r7 TP (17.5°)
Irons                    rac MB (3-PW)
Wedges               rac Satin TP (54°, 58°)
Putter                  Titleist by Scotty Cameron Newport 2
Ball                      TaylorMade TP Red LDP

Padraig Harrington's PGA championship winning clubs

Posted at 8:47 PM by David Dusek

Harrington_driver_450x600 You might think that after winning a major championship the last thing you would want to do is make an equipment change.

But after successfully defending his British Open championship by winning at Royal Birkdale, Padraig Harrington was spotted tinkering with a new driver two weeks ago at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio. It was a new Wilson prototype called the Smooth, but at the PGA Championship he was once again swinging a Wilson Dd6.

Here is a list of the clubs that Harrington used to win the PGA Championship.

Driver:                          Wilson Dd6+ (9°)
Fairway woods:           TaylorMade Burner (13°), Wilson Staff Fybrid  (18°)
Irons:                           Wilson Staff Ci7 (3-4) Wilson Pi5 (5-PW)
Wedges:                       Wilson Tw9 (54°, 60°)
Putter:                          Odyssey White Hot 2-Ball Blade
Ball:                             Titleist Pro V1x

J.B. Holmes's new driver and PGA Championship clubs

Posted at 8:29 AM by David Dusek

Holmes_450x600 J.B Holmes has a new toy. The Kentucky native switched to a new driver just before the PGA Championship, a Cobra L4V X, which is intended for players with extremely high swing speeds. (Um, I think J.B. qualifies.)

For players who really pack a wallop, the LV4 X is designed to create a high-launch, low-spin drive that maximizes distance. The face has no bias, so skilled players should be able to work the ball with either a draw or a fade.

According to Cobra's Web site, these are the clubs that J.B. has in his bag at Oakland Hills:

Driver         Cobra L4V X (8 °) with an Aldilla Voodoo XVS8 shaft
Fairway      Cobra Speed LD-X Pro (13°, 18°)
Irons            Cobra Pro CB (3-PW)
Wedges       Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled (54°, 60°)
Putter         Rife Barbados belly
Ball             Titleist Pro V1x

What the Groove Ruling Means For You

Posted at 8:47 AM by Mike Helfrich

Els_wedge_450x600 What does Tuesday's USGA ruling on the size and shape of grooves mean to the average golfer? As far as the Gear Doctor can tell right now, not a whole heck of a lot.

The ruling will limit the size and sharpness of U-grooves in irons, but the changes won't be mandatory for the manufacturers until January 1, 2010. So, the clubmakers can keep churning out their current models for another 17 months before they have to start conforming.

And, all clubs produced before that date will be legal for nearly every golfer until 2024. Unless you're competing in high-level amateur or professional tournaments, that means every club in your bag, and every club you buy between now and 2010, will be legal well beyond the lifespan of the average set.

Do you love your current set of irons or wedges with nonconforming grooves? If you want to keep playing them, you may want to stock up now so you have replacements on hand when your current set wears out. As long as you make your purchase before 2010, you can use the clubs in most competitions and to keep an official USGA handicap until 2024.

If you aspire to more than just an official handicap and a place in the annual member-guest, here's what you need to know:

  • The new rules will be in effect for all USGA professional events on or after January 1, 2010, and will likely apply to the PGA Tour and all of the other professional circuits as well after that date.

  • The new rules won't be in effect for USGA amateur championships until January 1, 2014, so even top amateurs have more than five years before they have to make a change.

USGA announces rule change on grooves

Posted at 2:15 PM by David Dusek

The USGA announced on Tuesday a change to the Rules of Golf that puts new restrictions on the volume and sharpness of golf club grooves.

The USGA's new rule, which matched an announcement by the R&A, is intended to make playing from the rough tougher for highly skilled players, but not for the average golfer.

"Our research shows that the rough has become less of a challenge for the highly skilled professional and that driving accuracy is now less of a key factor for success," USGA Senior Technical Director Dick Rugge said in a media release. "We believe that these changes will increase the challenge of the game at the Tour level, while having a very small effect on the play of most golfers."

The new rule restricts the sharpness, depth and width of grooves that can give better players more control and spin out of the rough.

Oldnew_gooves"The rules control the cross sectional area of grooves on all clubs, with the exception of drivers and putters, and limit groove edge sharpness on clubs with lofts equal to or greater than 25 degrees (generally a standard 5-iron and above)."

(Click on the USGA created image on the right for a graphic  explanation.)

The rule will apply to clubs manufactured after January 1, 2010, and starting in 2010 the USGA will enforce the new regulations at the U.S. Open, U.S. Women's Open and U.S. Senior Open, as well as each of their qualifying events. After January 1, 2014, all USGA amateur championships will also follow the new regulations. It appears the major professional tours and other governing bodies have agreed to follow suit.

"The PGA Tour, the European PGA Tour, the LPGA, the PGA of America and the International Federation of PGA Tours have all indicated their support for the new regulations on grooves. Each of these organizations, as well as the Augusta National Golf Club, have told the USGA and The R&A, the game's governing bodies, that they intend to adopt the condition of competition, applying the rules for their competitions, beginning on January 1, 2010."

Clubs made before January 1, 2010, will be considered legal until 2024 and can be used to maintain an official USGA handicap.

“Ultimately, we came to the conclusion that the path forward was to get the top-level professional tours under the new groove regulations as soon as possible and to phase in the next level of amateur competition four years later, in 2014,”  said Jay Rains, USGA vice president and chairman of the USGA Equipment Standards Committee “This means that clubs you own today will still be conforming for top-level amateur competition for another 5 1/2 years and, for other competitions, conforming until at least 2024, if not indefinitely.”

Vijay Singh's winning clubs

Posted at 2:48 PM by David Dusek

Singh_akron_400x600It's reassuring to amateurs that even big-name pros like Vijay Singh hate knee-knockers.

"I'm very, very uncomfortable with 4- and 5-footers," he admitted after his win Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. But unlike the typical weekend player, there is a lot more than pride on the line when a Tour player stands over an awkward-length putt.

"I was practicing 4- and 5-footers all week last week," Singh, 45, said. "And at the end of the day it pays off. And 17 and 18, it showed up. I told myself, 'Just like home, go ahead and make the stroke.' And it went in."

While he did miss a few relatively short putts, Singh also holed some long ones and felt better about his stroke after going back to a belly putter.

"Right now I'm very comfortable with the putter I have," he said. "I feel like I'm not thinking too much over the ball. I'm just making a stroke." According to Never Compromise, the putter Vijay is using is a Never Compromise GM2 Exchange #7 belly putter.

Singh, who now has more victories on the PGA Tour than any other non-American-born player, confesses that he still brings traditional-length putters with him, but he's hoping he won't go back to one. "If you see me with a short one, that means that something is wrong with me."

Here is a complete list of all the clubs that were in Singh's bag last weekend at Firestone Country Club:

Driver:                   Cleveland HiBore XL (9.5°)
Fairway woods:    Cleveland Launcher Steel Fairway (13°), Adams Idea a3 Boxer (19°)
Irons:                     Cleveland CG1 Black Pearl (4-P)
Wedges:                Cleveland CG12 (54°, 60°, 64°)
Putter:                  Never Compromise GM2 Exchange #7 belly
Ball:                      Titleist Pro V1x
