Northern Trust Open Photo Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

We're inside the ropes at the historic Riviera Country Club, site of the 2012 Northern Trust Open in Pacific Palisades, Calif., just outside of Los Angeles.

 

Last year, Bill Haas bested Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley in a two-hole playoff for his fourth PGA Tour victory and the first since winning the 2011 FedExCup.

 

This year, Haas returns with Bradley, Mickelson, and joins a star-studded field that includes Fred Couples, Sergio Garcia, Patrick Cantlay, Luke Donald, Ernie Els, Jim Furyk, Russell Henley, James Hahn, Charles Howell III, Ryo Ishikawa, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Hunter Mahan, Graeme McDowell, Adam Scott, Webb Simpson, Vijay Singh, Lee Westwood, Gary Woodland and many more.

Check out the photos we snapped below to see what players have in the bag this week, and what they're practicing on the course and on the range.

Keep em coming. Great shots of one of my favorite places. Are you going to stick around all week? I might try to get up there for the Wed Pro Am

I'm actually going to make a quick trip back to Maryland (haven't been home since the 15th of Jan). I'll be back at Riviera on Friday & the weekend.

WiFi speaker so you can play your tunes while you play golf

I think the thing clipped the Casey's cap is a metronome of some sort to beep a tone that will allow you to keep a certain rhythm/tempo to your swing

I think I might buy one of those speakers, anyone know who makes it?

Hey Greg. I'm extremely excited you and a number of the players are stoked on Boombotix. The model you saw on Stad's bag is the Boombot2 in the Sket One Artist Series colorway. I've included some information below about our company and products. I've also attached some pictures. If you would like other pictures you can find them here.

Boombotix: Conceived by combining a Japanese vinyl toy, off-the-shelf speaker internals, and a walkie-talkie clip, the Boombot was originally developed mainly as an alternative to headphones. The founders quickly realized that this product integrated perfectly into their transient bike-surf-skate-snow lifestyles. With a focus on technical innovation, great sound, ultraportability, and modern design, Boombotix speakers began turning heads on the streets of San Francisco and the local slopes of Lake Tahoe. All Boombotix products are custom tuned audio by professional engineers and built to be seamlessly integrated into the user’s lifestyle while withstanding outdoor environments.

Boombots also work great for golfers as well. With a clip on the back you can easily clip it on to a golf bag and take it with you all over the course. It's water resistant, shock resistant, and dirt resistant so is really well suited for using outdoors. It's extremely lightweight as well, so you won't feel like you're lugging around an extra club. And if you haven't heard it before, trust us, our products are loud.

Boombot1: The Boombot1 is our wired, ultra-loud and ultraportable speaker system. Featuring a 50mm driver along with a tweeter for higher frequencies the Boombot1 packs a punch. Just plug in the included auxiliary cable and it works with any audio device. The Boombot1 is also water-resistant and drop-tested. So if you're caught in the rain or drop it in some mud, you have nothing to worry about. The Boombot1 is charged with a USB cable—one hour of charge gives you approximately eight hours of play.

Boombot2: The Boombot2 is our ultraportable wireless speaker. It retains the same features as the Boombot1, but also adds in Bluetooth capabilities. Now you don't have to worry about getting tangled up in your wires. An additional feature of the Boombot2 is that it can also be used as a wireless receiver when it is in Bluetooth mode. By using an auxiliary cable, you can effectively make any other speaker system of yours Bluetooth.

those new adidas shoes in the tuesday pics are sick, anyone know when we can get our hands on them

+1 Kind of like an updated Adidas Superstar (or whatever they were called in the golf shoe). BTW, they have on adidas.com customizable Adizero Tours!

Anyone notice DJ trying the Versa?

Also looked a little like a Metal X face on there. Surprised he went with the #7 but it's a popular head so not that surprised.

A few notes from the Tuesday pics:

James Hahn- Very cool and down to earth guy. You can tell he is on cloud 9 right now.

CHIII- Very personable and willing to chat a bit with the fans. He just seems like a real genuine guy.

A few other un-named pros looked almost disgusted after signing autographs, which is understandable when a 40+ old guy pulls out 3 pictures to sign. Its obvious they are taking them straight to ebay for a profit.

The Koreans seem to really stick together. Huh, KJ, Bae, and Noh all played practice rounds. I think Huh went out with Hahn.

DJ tried like 4 different putters when I watched him. The rep brought over the shoes to see which he liked. DJ said 'I fu&%in want them all' LOL He was also telling them how he would like the colors switched a bit. Must be nice huh?

Watched ernie his his x-utility on #10. Murdered it. Now I know how the clubs is actually mean to perform. Absolutely no curve on the ball. straight rocket.

Can't help but notice that Dustin Johnson has got Tour 360 ATV's back on. I'll be interested to see if the AdiZero sticks with the other tour players.

I was there yesterday and today. Spent a lot of time by the equipment vans and have a few goodies for the effort. Rubbed elbows with Wayne Gretzky for a little bit today too. Watched Bubba, Webb, Adam Scott, Keegan, Sergio, Ernie, Corey, and Paddy today. Bubba looked the best. He just loves to work the driver so Riviera bends to his knees. Most of the straight forward guys have issues. If you can work it with the course you make it easier. Sergio was looking good. Webb was a little left off the tee all day and Adam Scott was back and forth but mostly high right pushes. Kokrak was putting lights out, Cantlay was terrible.

There were kids and grown men raiding the boxes sitting outside the TMaG trailer. Just grabbing hats, headcovers right out if the box like it was there for them. Walking away like nothing happened
