GEAR SHORTS

How does a private jet, two custom fitted sets of PXG clubs and a round of golf with the billionaire founder of the Arizona brand sound?

Described as an ‘elite four-day getaway for two’, it includes extensive club fittings, two sets of 14 clubs, golf, luxurious accommodation and the small matter of breakfast and a round of golf with PXG founder Bob Parsons.

USA, USA, USA

Last week, we told you about Ralph Lauren’s USA teamwear reveal and Galvin Green’s official European weatherwear launch. Now, Callaway and the Bryan Bros have taken USA support to a whole new level.

Callaway’s wedge customisation specialist Anthony Taranto (@TarantoAnthony) is forever posting images of his awesome designs online. These ones, though, set the bar even higher.

Surely they’re just for show, right? Apparently not. Trick shot specialist and new Web.com Tour graduate Wes Bryan appeared to claim ownership.

Stricker’s wife behind putter switch

As Tiger Woods’ go-to man for putting tips, it’s safe to say Steve Stricker knows a thing or two about how to play well on the greens.

It appears, however, his wife Nicki might know even better.

Stricker revealed last week ahead of the Deutsche Bank Championship that Nicki was the one who advised him to move away from his heel-shafted Odyssey White Hot #2 to ‘something a little bit easier’.

Smylie stokes conspiracy theory

Smylie Kaufman grabbed our attention when he showed off his new wedge stampings on Snapchat last week.

Apparently, Kaufman’s wedge relates to a popular conspiracy theory suggesting that Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla that was put down after a child fell into its enclosure, passed away due to an ‘inside job’.

Classic Mizuno MP-14s restored

Ever look at your old clubs in the garage and wish you could get them back in playing order? Well, avid golfer Ryan Barath has done exactly that.

First released back in 1994, these irons were known for their high quality forging and playability. They are also renowned as the irons Tiger Woods used to win his first green jacket in the 1997 Masters.
