Michelle Wie takes the Women’s U.S. Open trophy for a ride

Following her first major win on the weekend, Michelle Wie set out in her vehicle to no doubt celebrate and party with good friends. On her way off the property at Pinehurst, she made sure to buckle-in the newest addition to her growing collection:

Smart move Michelle, as you said it… SAFETY FIRST!

Michelle Wie's winning equipment from the Women's U.S. Open

Michelle Wie captured her first-ever major championship with a 2 shot win at the Women’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst this past weekend. The performance was rock-solid, and when faced with adversity, she stepped up to make the putt, time and again.

Her cool, calm, and relaxed demeanor was evident all weekend long, especially on Sunday when she was faced with a tough putt for double bogey. After knocking it in, she laughed it off, and went on to birdie the tough par 3 17th.

Below is what Michelle had in the bag to bring home the trophy:

Driver: 9.5 degree Nike Covert 2.0 with UST Mamiya Proforce Axivcore Red 69X shaft
3 Wood: 13 degree Nike Covert 2.0 Tour with UST Mamiya Proforce Axivcore Green 75X shaft
Hybrids: Nike VR_S Covert (17, 23) with Fujikura Motore Speeder Tour Spec Hybrid shafts
Irons: Nike VR Pro Combo Split Cavity (5, 6), Nike VR Pro Blade (7-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 High Launch shafts
Wedges: Nike VR X3X Dual Wide (52), Nike VR X3X Toe Sweep (56, 60) all with True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 High Launch shafts
Putter: Nike Method 006 Prototype
Ball: Nike RZN Black

Well done Michelle!

Tiger Woods returning to PGA Tour next week

Tiger Woods returning to PGA Tour next week

The long wait (for some) is over, as Tiger Woods has announced via his Facebook page that he will be back in action next week.

“After a lot of therapy I have recovered well and will be supporting my foundation next week at the Quicken Loans National. I’ve just started to hit full shots but it’s time to take the next step. I will be a bit rusty but I want to play myself back into competitive shape. Excited for the challenge ahead.”

Tiger hasn’t played since undergoing microdiscectomy surgery to relieve a pinched nerve in his back at the end of March.

Should be interesting to follow Tiger’s progress as he ramps up towards the British Open and PGA Championship.

Martin Kaymer's winning equipment from the U.S. Open

Martin Kaymer put on a masterful display of golf at the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst this past weekend. It was domination personified. Leading all the way from the first round on, Kaymer played a steady and impressive brand of golf, a level of golf one or two notches above everyone else in the field. In the end, Kaymer won by 8 shots (-9) over Rickie Fowler and Erik Compton (-1).

As we do, let’s take a look at what Martin had in the bag to take home his second major in such dominating fashion:

Driver: 8.5 degree TaylorMade SLDR 460 with Graphite Design Tour AD DI-6X shaft
3 Wood: 14 degree TaylorMade SLDR with Graphite Design Tour AD DI-7X shaft
Irons: TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC (3-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue shafts
Wedges: TaylorMade XFT TP (51, 58) with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue shafts
Putter: Ping Karsten 1959 Anser 2
Ball: TaylorMade Lethal

Well done Martin!

U.S. Open underway at Pinehurst No. 2

U.S. Open underway at Pinehurst No. 2

The 2014 U.S. Open is underway right now at Pinehurst No. 2, and we couldn’t be more excited. Early in round one a number of players are under-par. Mickelson, Toms, Spieth, and young amateur Fitzpatrick are all in the mix. Great to see.

As the week continues and we move into the weekend, we’ll no doubt see the course firm up to play fast and difficult. We have a feeling today and tomorrow might be the only days players have to take advantage of slightly easier scoring conditions.

So we’re off… and if you’re excited like us we can’t blame you.

Who’s your pick to win the 2014 U.S. Open?

 

Ben Crane’s winning equipment from the St. Jude Classic

Ben Crane's winning equipment from the St. Jude Classic

Ben Crane took home his fifth career PGA Tour win this past weekend by capturing the FedEx St. Jude Classic by one shot over Troy Merritt. The win was a long awaited one for Crane, who had not won on tour since 2011.

‘Holding on’ is how you might describe Crane’s final round. He shot a 73 to finish at 10-under par, and didn’t card a single birdie in the last 18. Crane showed great poise and composure by holding together a round that could have easily gotten away from him.

Hideki Matsuyama gets it done at the Memorial

Hideki Matsuyama gets it done at the Memorial

What a Sunday we had yesterday at The Memorial. Japanese phenom Hideki Matsuyama topped Kevin Na in a playoff to win his first career PGA Tour victory.

With Na already in the clubhouse at -13, Matsuyama came clutch, sticking a 7-iron to 5 feet on the 72nd hole to force a playoff. The putt was impressive, especially when you consider the number of shots Matsuyama squandered down the stretch leading to the 18th green. In fact, other leaders including Adam Scott and Bubba Watson faltered with consistency down the closing holes.
