Clark’s Record Low Round At Pebble To Win:
The annual AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am took place in California over the weekend. Regularly cited as one of the most attractive and prominent golf courses in the world, it’s always a joy to watch tour players take on the iconic landscape of Pebble Beach.
The tournament was cut a round short however due to some very stormy inclement weather, but that didn’t quite stop some fantastic golfing feats from being on display. Last year’s U.S. Open winner and Ryder Cup team member Wyndham Clark took home the win when the tournament was declared concluded following a severe weather warning.
In a heroic display of golf, Clark landed a final round of 60 to finish on 17-under-par, one stroke ahead of second-placed Ludvig Aberg. He moved up the leaderboard by 8 shots on the first half of Saturday alone, making two eagles and four birdies on the front 9 (-8) and five birdies and a bogie on the back nine(-4) to finish on (-12) for the day. Not a bad result for having finished the first round of the tournament on level par 72.
Clark’s closing round of 60 set a new Pebble Beach course record. It was very nearly a 59 but his putts on the 16th and 17th both came up an inch short of the middle of the hole and also his penultimate putt for eagle ended up only 6 inches short on the 18th to leave a tap-in birdie secured him his first tour win since last year’s major. With both the players and the weather providing an entertaining spectacle at Pebble Beach, fans were ecstatic when Wyndham Clark sunk his final putt. The whirlwind final round was a pleasant surprise, even Clark himself “It’s pretty surreal right now.
Vokey to Launch NEW SM10 Wedges:
According to Master Craftsman Bob Vokey, the three keys to great wedge play are shot versatility, distance and trajectory control with maximum spin. The correct grind will help achieve shot versatility, while locating the CG (Centre of Gravity) more forward and higer up the face helping to achieve that lower trajectory and better feel off the face. Maximum spin comes from the patented groove cutting process giving higher and more consistent spin off the face.
Bob Vokey has spent decades developing a complete lineup of grind, bounce and loft options.
“It sounds simple, but having the correct wedge and knowing when to use it has a direct impact on scoring performance” Bob Vokey stated.
SM10 wedge options allow for more creativity and consistency, and give players of any level the ability to create multiple shots into and around the green.
Grinds T, M, F, S, D & K are all built specifically for every type of golf swing from golfers who have a steep or shallow angle of attack, like the face to sit square, open or closed.
