Published on

Many prominent golf companies, players and PGA instructors regularly take to Twitter to talk about their equipment and other aspects of their game. Here is a round-up of some of the most interesting golf-related Twitter entries from the week of April 25-May 1, featuring Geoff Ogilvy, Natalie Gulbis, Tiger Woods and more:

Paula Creamer

@ThePCreamer   I think I will be putting a new putter in the bag. I thought about it on the plane and it is time to switch it up. Hit 13 greens 35 putts

@ThePCreamer   I wish I could blame it on the actual putter but my taylormade daytona ghost is not at fault! It is me and in-between my ears!!!

Mike Fay, PGA
@mikefaygolf   Question about regripping: It really depends upon how often you play. I think a good rule of thumb is regrip every 45 rounds or 6 mo.

@mikefaygolf   Question about: which club to chip with...The more room you have to work with, the less loft and vice versa.

@FootJoy   Congrats to world #1 @WestwoodLee for 2nd straight win, this time wearing all white #DryJoysTour and #SciFlex. 35th career win. Wow.

Wilson Golf

Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney   Not that different honestly, forged more expensive to make RT @mrbarrera: @HankDHaney forged or cast? Which is better iron?

@HankDHaney   Yes might need lie adjusted or new driver shaft RT @ej0513: played for two yrs, been fitted before, my swing has changed, get fitted again?

@HankDHaney   Both good RT @MC_73: @HankDHaney Hi Hank, would you recommend the forged AP2 or cast AP1 iron for a 13hc golfer?

@HankDHaney   I would RT @DavePlaz22: I have old procombos - extremely accurate - distance short by half a club to full club. As a 6 should I go 2.0?

Christina Kim

@TheChristinaKim   Sooooo I added a mark to my ball to try and get some momentum. Didn't work for me. @WestwoodLee!!!

@HankDHaney   Huge difference RT @Sportswinner: @HankDHaney big difference between 7 year old Adams tight lies irons from today's or time for new irons?

@HankDHaney   Not many don't RT @foster0130: you always tell amateurs even scratch players toplay cavity backs..should this apply to more tour pros?

@HankDHaney   Only if u want to hit it better RT @chrisg9119: now use titleist zm blades hit them good. would u still recommend changing them to a cb?

@HankDHaney   Never they get new wedges at least 2-3 times a year RT @AndrewHansen: how often do pros sharpen grooves? Is there a good tool they use?

@HankDHaney   That would be your issue RT @stormdavis4D: @HankDHaney : Hank - How do I convince my wife I need new irons this season ??

@HankDHaney   Extra stiff RT @Mdeathstar2: @HankDHaney with 115 mph swing speed. extra stiff or stiff with driver?

@HankDHaney  12-14 RT @zrblight: @hankdhaney what bounce you suggest on 58* or 60* wedge ? 13-14 handicap

@HankDHaney   Moot point RT @jasonkwilliams: what point should a young golfer switch from cavity to muscle back irons, or is that a moot point today?

@HankDHaney   Pro's check their lies at least once a year RT @JasonTigner: @HankDHaney how often should I have the lie angle on my clubs done/checked?

@HankDHaney   Depends on swing so try them both RT @dk1fu: @HankDHaney pro v 1 or pro v 1x ?

Joey Pickavance, PGA

@joeypickavance   Physics/Science tell us "more handicap players should not even carry a 3-wood" due to lack of clubhead speed for this club to be effective.

Tyrus York, PGA
@tyrusyork   @joeypickavance couldn't agree more. I've told several of my students to dump the 3 wood and get a 4 wood. Or 4 wood w/ 3 wood shaft.
