GEAR SHORTS Hot new Scotty releases, Phil’s special gift



Jimmy Walker made it yet another success for a Scotty Cameron putter at the US PGA Championship.

Using the Scotty Cameron GSS 350 prototype, Walker went wire-to-wire at Baltusrol for his maiden major title in what was a great time for the Titleist putter master craftsman, after new ‘tour-only’ putters were released last week.

With values ranging from $2,500 all the way up to $12,000, there’s only one place you want to go if you love your Scotty Cameron putters. There are a load in his Gallery Store, including the new Tour Rat I, pictured above.

Introducing the ‘Yangsta’

In what may be the most colourful wedge stamping on tour, it seems 2009 PGA Championship winner Y.E. Yang’s nickname is a little more inventive than most.

The 44-year-old famously held off the challenge of Tiger Woods at Hazeltine and he is still gaming the Titleist SM4 wedges that were released way back in 2012.

Hahn ‘smokes’ PXG driver in testing

James Hahn is known by most golf fans for his Gangnam Style dance routine on 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale a few years back. Well, the 34-year-old has been at it again during a testing session with his club sponsors PXG.

It is believed Hahn was testing PXG’s new prototype 0811X driver, which Billy Horschel has also been spotted testing this week.

Faldo kitted out with new Mizuno wedges

We first got wind new Mizuno wedges were in the works when Luke Donald gamed them at Royal Troon during the Open Championship.

Now it seems more Mizuno is kitting out more of its staffers including Nick Faldo, who got his hands on 56˚, 58˚ and 60˚ Mizuno T7 wedges.

PGA Championship - Round Three

Last week Phil Mickelson returned to the site of his only PGA Championship victory and he did so with a special gift for the club’s long-serving head pro.

Mickelson famously claimed the title at Baltusrol the last time it staged the PGA Championship in 2005 and has become good friends with head pro Doug Steffen since.

The gift from Mickelson and Callaway consisted of two custom-engraved, commemorative wedges for Steffen, who has been the club’s head pro since 1997 and will be retiring in just a few months time.

Lovely touch from Phil and Callaway!
