The Houston Open serves as both a tune-up for the Masters or as a last-ditch effort to get in. Beau Hossler and multiple major winners Padraig Harrington and Ernie Els dropped into the latter category, and while these people didn’ t make the field from Augusta National (although Hossler arrived oh-so-close), they did have some interesting clubs in their bags.
Beau Hossler might not have earned the Houston Open , yet he putted like a champion whenever he made four birdies inside a row on Nos. 12 via 15 to erase a three-shot deficit and take the lead, which includes a 28-footer on the par-3 fourteenth hole. In all, Hossler was a remarkable 1 . 589 strokes gained/putting for that week, including an even better indicate of 1. 884 Sunday. Hossler’ h putter is TaylorMade’ s TP Ardmore 2 Red mallet (above) . However , as opposed to the standard version which is all crimson save for a pair of sightlines within the rear cavity, Hossler’ s Ardmore 2 has a white cavity along with black sightlines and a white topline. Despite the visual custom alterations, the particular Ardmore 2 still features the particular hallmark technologies, namely an 6061 aluminum version of TaylorMade’ ersus grooved face insert. The mixture of the grooves’ 45- degree position and polymer filling work to enhance roll and feel.
Ernie Els signed with Cleveland/Srixon in The month of january and soon after put the company’ ersus XXIO X driver in enjoy, bringing attention to a club made to boost swing speed for certain gamers. The idea behind the driver is to possess the golfer swing more efficiently while not having to use any additional effort.
