Luke List's irons have names
Some golfers give their drivers names, like ''Big Dawg.'' And, of course, some very famous putters have names, like Bobby Jones' ''Calamity Jane.''
Most of the clubs in between are just known by their numbers. Until now, anyway.
The photo above was tweeted by Callaway's Vice President of Sports Marketing Nick Raffaele on Tuesday. It shows a brand-new set of Callaway RAZR X Muscleback irons that Callaway just made for big-hitting Luke List. Instead of numbers, each club has a name – like Rack 'em, Fireball and Lean on it. That is just awesome.
I've never named my clubs, though I admit I have occasionally called them names when they misbehaved.
List is playing the Reno-Tahoe Open this week. It'll be fun to see if his new babies live up to their monikers.
