Is nicknaming irons the PGA Tour’s next equipment trend?

By Alex Myers

blog-luke-list-clubs-0731.jpgLuke List is known as one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour. Now, he’ll also be known as that guy who doesn’t have numbers on any of his irons.

As you can see by the picture tweeted by Chad Coleman (@HashtagChad), Head of Social Media for Callaway Golf and Odyssey Golf, List’s new sticks will all feature nicknames instead of digits. We just hope he and his caddie will have the key written down somewhere on his golf bag in case they forget which name corresponds with which loft.

We’ve seen many players customize wedges in recent years (List calls his 60-degree wedge “Chet,” a name he describes as his “alter ego.”), but List appears to be the first tour pro to stamp names on all of his irons while getting rid of the numbers on the clubs altogether. We’ll have to wait and see when List puts these in play (He’s in the Reno-Tahoe Open field this week, but doesn’t have the clubs in his bag) and if any fellow players will follow suit.

“Fireball”? “Lean on it”? “Rack Em”? “‘Merica”? Good stuff. But how could he not go with “Be The Right One!” for any of them?

Inbee Park living large, tweets picture of new Ferrari

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

Inbee Park may be just a few weeks away from competing in the Women’s British Open, the fourth (and possibly final, depending on how you look at it) leg of her quest for the grand slam, but she doesn’t seem too worried. In fact, she seems decidedly relaxed, tweeting a smiling picture of herself alongside her new red 2013 Ferrari FF Wednesday, a car that starts at just under $300,000. Park got the car as part of a year-long sponsorship deal with a Ferrari importer, according to the Korea Herald.

She certainly has cause to celebrate: In the last year, Park has played 15 events and won six times (including three consecutive majors) with eight top 10s. That puts her first on this year’s LPGA Tour money list with about $2 million in earnings, more than $1 million ahead of No. 2 Stacy Lewis. Since turning pro in 2007, a stint that included a four-year victory drought, Park has made close to $7.5 million.
Park isn’t the only golfer to boast an affinity for fast cars. Sergio Garcia’s passion for them is well known, as is Ian Poulter’s, who showed off his 2012 Ferrari FF and 2010 Ferrari California to Golf Digest last year.
