I want those headcovers

I played with John about a month ago and he is a great guy!  At that time, he had a SIM2 driver with a Ventus Black 6-X tipped 1.0" and it looks like the same 3 wood in the bag which has a GD XC 8TX. 

No kidding.  That's some nice swag.  Do them as a limited release or something.

Looks like AD TP in 3 wood (still think not enough people have tried the TP), Ventus Black? in driver (heavily tipped), and DI in 7 wood. Interesting transition from driver to 7 wood.

Interesting to see the v6 instead of a staff model CB long iron.

Yeah it is weird especially knowing Wilson doesn’t make the v6 anymore. Would have thought Wilson would ask the pro staffers to promote the new staff model cb more. Makes me think they the pro staff players prefer the v6 over the new staff model cb.

It does say a lot about the irons I  like the D7 forged Irons but my favorite my V2 tour set. Love them ! I messed up and had a chance to buy on a new V2 set and dropped the ball.. What does all this say about the New Irons from Wilson ? are they slipping ? Time will tell .I will continue to stick with them because I believe the new owner is committed to bringing Wilson back to Championships as they were "The KING OF THE HILL" for a long while.

They Can again be the King !!

Think it might actually be the AD XC. The TP isn't that dark. I do agree with you on the TP though, love that shaft.

He also had a very cool Scotty GSS (maybe Timeless) in an antique bronze looking head with a black shaft.

 

It was a fun day!

How was his game/ball flight/shot shape/etc.? Based on his API scores looks like he had a rough go of it round 1 and put up a very respectable 70 the next day.

I think its got to be hard for rookies to come out to a place like Bay Hill (and a lot of other Tour venues) and play it for the the first time in a Tour setup and try to figure it out in competition.  Had a good college career at Vandy.  Hopefully he can have a good rookie campaign.

He was solid.  No warm up, never played the course, shot 70.  Had to switch shoes on the 2nd hole (loaners from the pro shop) because the course did not want him wearing his metals spikes 🙂Good off the tee (good length but not a bomber), very good inside 125y, missed a few greens outside of 150y, didn't make any putts on the front 9 but got a feel for the greens on the back and made 4 birdies.  He was struggling with the Poa Annua greens which may explain his 0/4 cuts since they were west coast events.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
