So today’s article is going to be relatively short and instead of berating a golf swing or some golf injustice (save that for another day) this is going to be… fun.

So I was sitting in bed on my laptop talking on Twitter. Having a great conversation with some of my “Tweeps” when I had an utter flash of brilliance. As some of you know, deciding the winners of the equipment Edition of the Teezy Awards from the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show was difficult. I had several tie-breakers involved to decide winners and that’s truly a real testament to how outstanding most of the products are in 2019. Honestly, I’m already licking my chops thinking about what’s to come for the “Year of Perfect Vision” (2020).

So the epiphany. Starting as recently as the Non-Equipment Teezy Awards from the 2019 PGA Show I’m going to experiment with a new format. Much like the Olympics, I’m going to dole out a Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medal winner based on the points accumulated. The reason for this can really be attributed to Wilson Golf. In the write-up, Wilson Golf didn’t get a mention for the D7 irons. They scored 37/40 points! That was the winning total for the Top Driver. This way, they’d get their mention in the Teezy Awards as well.. those irons deserved it. I think it’ll make for a good change.

Composite Course. In the same time that I was scouring Twitter, I saw a post from Zac Blair. For those that aren’t familiar with him, Zac plays on the web.com Tour. He posed this question.

I found it to be really thought-provoking and while some holes were easy (holes had to match so the 17th at Sawgrass would have to be my 17th hole and so on) some weren’t the case. When the dust settled I had a gem of a Par 71 layout. Apparently, I love links, the ocean, and diversity. I think I have something on all of the continents but South America and Antarctica. My background is Hungarian (mom left there in 1956) so I even picked a hole from Hungary. So here it is… My Composite Course.

I had the pleasure of reviewing both the Srixon Golf Z-Star XV golf ball and the Cleveland Golf RTX-3 wedges last year. Congratulations to Ted Potter Jr on clinching his victory at the AT&T National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach Golf Links. The victory was well-deserved.

Thanks to Srixon and Cleveland Golf Marketing and Communications Specialist Noelle Zavaleta for sharing the press release.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – February 11, 2018 – Trusting the tour-validated performance of his Srixon and Cleveland Golf equipment, Ted Potter, Jr. stared down the world’s best on his way to a three-shot victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, CA. He followed Saturday’s brilliant 62 with a near-flawless final round to capture his second career PGA Tour victory.

Entering the final-round tied for the lead, Potter bogeyed the opening hole to drop one behind the lead.  That would prove to be the only blemish on the card for Potter on Sunday, as he reclaimed the lead by the fifth hole, and never relinquished it.  Potter knows a thing or two about overcoming adversity. After his first PGA Tour victory in 2012, he would suffer a devastating ankle injury that took years to recover from.  This win is a true testament to Ted and his fight back to the top.

“It’s definitely pleasing, it was a struggle there, when you break your ankle and you don’t know what’s going to happen with your golf swing,” Potter said. “To come back from that, I mean, it’s just unbelievable right now.”

Potter’s Z-STAR XV golf ball and Cleveland RTX-3 wedges helped him to a flawless short-game performance all week which also earned him the number one spot for most birdies in the field (24) and jumped up 102 spots in the FedEx Cup Rankings. On the day, Potter was perfect around the greens, converting every up and down opportunity he faced.

In Ted Potter’s Bag:

  • Srixon Z-STAR XV golf ball

  • Cleveland RTX-3 wedges (54°, 60°) with True Temper Dynamic Golf Tour Issue S400 shafts

 

  • Srixon Staff bag, hat, and glove
