Photos from the 2014 Humana Challenge: Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

GolfWRX is live from the 2014 Humana Challenge at the Palmer Private at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif. The Pro-Am format will also utilize PGA West's Nicklaus Private golf course, and La Quinta Country Club over the first three rounds of the event.

 

Zach Johnson, Harris English and Webb Simpson headline the field as the tour returns to the mainland from last week's tour stop on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. All three players will be looking for their second win of the wraparound season and continuing their consistent play of late. Also joining the headlines is Rickie Fowler, who grew up nearby in Murietta, and 2012 FedEx Cup winner Brandt Snedeker.

 

Brian Gay will look to defend his title at the Humana Challenge. He won last year in a playoff against Charles Howell III and David Lingmerth, who were locked in a three-way tie at 9-under par through 72 holes.

 

Check out our photos from the Humana Challenge in La Quinta, Calif.

Garrigus with Adams sponsorship and only one Adams club in bag that I could see. Will he add more clubs as the year goes by or is it a hat & bag deal?

They are set up in the "Fan Zone" and on the far end of the range where the amateurs playing in the pro-am are so they can try the Cobra equipment. There were a couple of other equipment companies that had little tents up on the amateur's range as well.

It's amazing me how few tour players are using blades anymore, yet weekend hackers seem to think every good player uses them. I can't tell you how many high handicappers ask for them because they think it's a better club.

Find it interesting too that most the guys still using blades seem to be Nike and Callaway guys. Is there something to it or am I looking too much into it?

One last interesting thought: there seems to be less and less hybrid use on tour. Any insight into that?

Is that wood out of the bag a training club or actual club from the bag?

 

And is it just me or does that driver look absurdly long?

Still no answer on Dudley Hart's driver shaft? Looked like a Graphite Design but yellow & white? Must be the MT. I guess I thought the green would pop more?18847372f59438bc48d9f5a41969c289.jpg
