Surprised he hasnt caved the face in on that nike club, yet. Unless he has a bunch of them saved up.

 

Also cool to see a really rare Callaway fairway. There's a USGA confirming list entry for a Rogue fairway without an alignment logo and its the only one.

Yup, I remember in an interview he did he said this (current) is his back up, and he's got 1 more back up at home. First gamer lasted 6 years before it caved.

Always wanted to try out the newer Ping putters... They look like they'd be relatively muted off the face

Tony has been in that G400 Stretch 3w for years, interesting to see a potential replacement from Callaway out of left field.

Recall that same interview, think he he had 1-2 more but said something to the effect of "I hope I'm playing this club until I'm 50." Last time I checked his witb he had the lead tape cut to reveal the Nike logo (https://www.golfwrx.com/671431/tony-finau-witb-2022-february/), so wondering if it's a new head or just some fresh tape.

 

Anyone else notice the ferrule creak on several irons (4, W)? Would drive me nuts but I know pings can be a PITA to pull -- to each his own 😅

Oh that special Callaway 3 wood. Very interesting in a PING staffers bag too. Wonder how that works getting clubs to test from companies outside PING. 

Finua's and Hovland's club deals with Ping require them to play a minimum of 11 Ping clubs. Likely the same for other Ping staffers. As to getting others brands clubs to play all they have to do is ask. Happens all over the tour.

Seems he has only 1 of them per WRX frontpage.

 

I got about 6 years of use out of the first one, and I’m hoping to get about 6-7 years out of this one,” Finau told GolfWRX at the Travelers. “I only have one backup, but I’m hoping I’ll get 6-7 years out of that one, too.”

I thought that PING staffers had to play a "complete set" of Ping clubs?

 

Have they softened on this?

Usually it has to be ping putter and driver, with some players having 10 club vs 14 club deals for the rest of the bag. A ton of ping guys use at least one vokey wedge in the bag (Hovland, Hatton, Finau from memory no doubt there are more)

 

Tony had a special arrangement where he could use the piretti putter for a while be has been in a PLD for quite a while now
