The most common thing I see when teaching putting to my students is that most of them have putters that are too long for them.  If you are really serious about your golf game, have a putter fitting.  Make sure your arms are hanging comfortably from your shoulders.  When the putter shaft is too long, it tends to push the arms upward.  This causes a cramped position which does not help create a good putting stroke.  This new line of Scotty Cameron putters is catering to juniors, women, and shorter golfers who just don’t fit the standard 33″ or 32″ putters.  

Thanks to  Andrew Tursky of Golf Wrx for this new equipment review.

The Skinny on Cameron and Crown Putters.

Golf is great because people of all shapes, sizes and ages can play and enjoy it. In that case, however, not every golfer fits into a 34- or 35-inch putter like you’d think when scanning the putter racks at your local golf shop.

If you do happen to fit into a “standard-length” 34- or 35-inch putter, then maybe you don’t know that most people playing a 33-inch putter are doing so with a putter that’s been cut down to size. The problem with that is shortening the putter without adding weight back will affect swing weight, overall weight, and ultimately, feel and performance.

“When we pioneered the adjustable sole weight system, it became possible to match the putter head weight relative to the length for a balanced stroke,” said Titleist Master Putter Maker Scotty Cameron. “Cameron & Crown models are purpose-built 33-inch designs, not manipulated 35-inch putters.  With two 20-gram weights to ensure the swing weight and feel of these putters are consistent with their longer counterparts.”

Scotty Cameron’s new line of putters — called Cameron & Crown.

The aim is to give juniors, women and shorter athletes an opportunity to play a line of putters designed specifically for them. And the head models featured in the Cameron & Crown line are some of the most popular heads from his other lines.

The Cameron & Crown line will consist of the Select Newport 2, the Select Newport M2 Mallet, the GoLo 5 and the Futura X5R models. Each of the putters will measure 33 inches, and will come with a White Matador putter grip that measures smaller in diameter than Cameron’s standard Matador grips. The smaller grip is said to better match performance, feel and weight.

Cameron & Crown putters will be available in stores (MSRP $410) in Canada and the U.S. on September 23, and the rest of the world on October 21.

See below for more photos of each putter, and click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the Cameron & Crown putters.

The Mizuno JPX 900 Irons - Blade and Cavity Back combined!

The Mizuno JPX 900 Irons – Blade and Cavity Back combined!

In my mind, there is no doubt that Mizuno makes the finest irons in the world.  I play Mizuno irons.  I have for the past 10 years, and they continue to impress.  The dedication and professionalism of the entire company are outstanding.  Their “grain flow forged ” process gives these irons the amazing feel that Mizuno is famous for.  But Mizuno has blurred the line between the pure blade and the more forgiving cavity back design to produce the Mizuno JPX 900 Tour.  These irons are going in my bag as soon as they hit the market!  Come and see me for a fitting!  Thanks to Andrew Tursky of Golf Wrx for bringing us this breaking news!

Mizuno, which has set the golden standard for players irons over the years, is blurring the lines between a blade iron and a forged cavity back with its new JPX-900 Tour irons. The new irons pass the eye-test for a blade.  But they’re full of performance features usually kept for Mizuno’s bulkier JPX irons.

Like Mizuno’s MP iron models, which are designed for the most discerning golfers, the JPX-900 Tour irons are made from Mizuno’s Grain Flow forged 1025E Mild Carbon Steel to give golfers the familiar soft, solid feel That Mizuno is known for.

“We wanted to make the best grain flow forged iron ever,” says David Llewellyn, Mizuno’s Director of R&D.

What’s different about the JPX-900 Tour irons is the more aggressive styling, which is part form, part function. The addition of Mizuno’s angular “Power Frame” to the cavity increases moment of inertia (MOI), which makes the irons more forgiving.

Yet according to Llewellyn, the refined cavity-back irons should be an easy transition for its staff players, Chris Wood and Luke Donald, who currently use the company’s MP-5 blade irons.

Mizuno’s MP-64 irons, a forged cavity-back that many in the Mizuno community believe to be the best-feeling Mizuno iron in recent memory.  Mizuno could then use this as the benchmark for the acoustics of the JPX-900 Tour irons.

The company’s HIT (Harmonic Impact Technology) system, measures and quantifies sound frequencies.  And Mizuno is able to mimic the acoustics of the MP-64 irons while improving on their construction.

There are certainly more than 10 “Unwritten Rules” in golf, but these will do for a start.  For those of you who are learning the game, these etiquette tips are invaluable.  You also want to learn some of the basic rules.  The USGA puts out a beginner’s guide to the rules of golf.  Check on the USGA website.  Thanks to Andrew Tursky of Golf Wrx for this interesting list!

Here are 10 "Unwritten Rules" in Golf - How many do you know?

Raking the bunker might be an obvious thing to do, but don’t forget to hit the bottom of your shoes with the rake or a club to get the excess sand off before you walk onto the green!

Golf Course Etiquette.

There is certain etiquette all golfers are taught when first learning to play the game, such as not to step in another person’s line on the green and not to talk while another person is hitting. Those are the basics, but not what I’m talking about here. Instead, there are underlying rules of etiquette, ones that you may never even know existed.

You see, the mind of a golfer is very fragile and often irrational. But, it’s understandable since there’s a constant battle going on inside of it — juggling swing thoughts, demons, highs, and lows. At any point, a golfer’s patience can snap, and the last thing he or she needs is a push from a playing partner.

When you’re in a group with another golfer, your job is to be respectful, helpful, enjoyable, and sometimes just stay out of the way. Of course, you don’t want to unknowingly aggravate a player in your group (unless you’re playing match play, maybe), but that’s another discussion entirely.

Here’s a list of 10 unwritten, unspoken rules of golf etiquette.

10. Don’t talk to someone else’s golf ball.

I know; you’re only being polite. But when golfers spray a shot, and it’s heading for the water, you can bet they know it’s heading for the water. They don’t need you yelling at it or begging for it to stay dry. If they want to instruct their golf ball to behave a certain way, leave it up to them.

The last thing you want is for them to say GO as their ball flies toward a fairway bunker while you’re telling it to SIT… only to see it land in the sand. Awkward.

Your pleads to another’s golf ball can also come across as insincere or even disrespectful. For example, if the ball is clearly hooking left into the trees, and you yell, “spit it!” you’re basically saying that the golfer just hit a shot that needs to get extremely lucky. Surely the player doesn’t need to hear your confirmation that he or she just hit a terrible shot.

It’s their golf ball; they paid for it, they hit it, and they know best where it’s going. When in doubt, silence is always the best approach.

9. If you say “nice shot,” make sure it was a nice shot.

“Nice shot” is undoubtedly the most overused compliment in golf, so make sure to use it correctly.

Imagine you’re a scratch golfer, and your ball is in the fairway about 100 yards out, your favorite number. The pin is tucked back-right, but you’re eyeing it up and looking to attack in hopes of making birdie. You ended up tugging it and didn’t catch it cleanly either, so you let your hand off the club in disappointment. The ball lands on the front left portion of the green for an outside chance at birdie, and you’re heated. You slam the club back in your bag, upset at the missed opportunity, and another player in the group gives you a half-hearted nice shot.

Now, not only did the compliment go unappreciated, but the scratch golfer may now be thinking, “Are their standards so low of my golf game that they think that’s a nice shot?”

And this goes for any level of golfer. No one wants to hear nice shot when it was below their standards. So the point is, compliment a player on hitting a good one but make sure the player agrees with you.

8. Show some love.

On the flip side, if your playing partner is faced with a difficult shot — maybe they need to hit a towering shot over a tree to a green guarded by water — and they pull it off, make sure to say something more than “nice shot.” Especially if you’re the one who said “nice shot” when that same player hit a semi-chunk from 100 yards on the hole before.

Since a golfer’s mind is fragile, it doesn’t hurt to stroke their ego a bit when they hit an amazing shot.

One of the many things that amaze me while teaching obviously keen golfers (they wouldn’t be taking lessons unless they were) is the lack of care they take with their equipment.  Iron grooves are dirty, driver’s heads are dinged up because they don’t have headcovers on them, and their grips are old and smooth.  Folks, if you want to play well, take care of your clubs.  I put new grips on my clubs once a year, and I don’t play a whole lot.  For golfers who play more than once a week, consider putting new grips on twice a year.  The look and feel of news grips will make a huge difference to your game!  Andrew Tursky of Golfwrx gives us the lowdown on Lamkins’s new Z5 grip.  Read on!

Lamkin makes the claim that with more traction and comfort, leading to a lighter grip pressure, golfers can actually gain speed and distance by using its new Z5 grip. But what makes this promise of “better traction and more comfort” any different than any other grip on the market?

Lamkin Z5 Explained.

Well, the Z5 grips have 5 different sections, or “zones,” each of which have different designs and are made with different materials. The rationale here seems to be that since each hand has a different function during the swing and setup, and they have different needs from a grip, that the grip shouldn’t be uniform from top to bottom.
