Series: Week's Worth of Tweets

Published: Monday, April 08, 2013 | 4:00 p.m.


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 1-7, featuring Rickie Fowler, Beatriz Recari, William McGirt and more:
Matrix Shafts ‏
@MatrixShafts    Congrats to the winner of the Valero Texas Open who used an OZIK 8M3 Black Tie in his driver! #matrixpower
TaylorMade Asia‏
@TaylorMadeAsia   Martin Laird shoots 63 on Sunday to win Valero Texas Open. WITB - RBZ Stage 2 driver / RBZ Stage 2 4 wood / TPMB irons / TPDA 12 / Lethal
TaylorMade Golf 
‏@TaylorMadeGolf   What an incredible final-round performance by Martin Laird! Nine birdies, no bogeys, 22 putts with his Ghost Tour DA-12. Ties course record!
‏@TaylorMadeGolf   Laird's bag includes the new RBZ Stage 2 Tour driver (9*) and fairway, Ghost Tour DA-12, Lethal ball. #AugustaBound pic.twitter.com/6O5mBvgcmU
Vokey Wedges ‏
@VokeyWedges   And it's another win for Vokey Wedges! Congrats to the champion @valerotxopen ! #TVD #InVokeWeTrust
@VokeyWedges   WITB for @valerotxopen champ: raw SM4 TVD54& 58; DG Tour Issue S400 shafts, 1*up, GP Tour Velvet grips, stamped ML in white. #InVokeWeTrust
@VokeyWedges   At last week's @valerotxopen Vokey had 145 wedges in play. Closest competitor: 60. #InVokeWeTrust
Charlie Tour (TaylorMade) ‏
@CharlieTour   How about this round by Martin Laird? Would be first @PGATOUR win for RBZ Stage 2 Tour driver - he first switched during Florida Swing.
@CharlieTour   We just phoned in the last commemorative staff bag panel for @The_Masters. Laird's collection won't skip a beat. pic.twitter.com/dAimLiP9XT
@CharlieTour   Last time I talked to Laird (at length) said he's spent the last year-plus *grinding* to improve his bunker play. His sand save at VTO? 100%
@CharlieTour   And yes, Laird's putter carried him Sunday. No question about it. But he finished top-5 in total driving and his average up from 289 -> 303.

Fujikura Composites
@FujikuraOnTour   A well fit shaft stores energy from the load of your swing and can assist with impact location plus face angle at impact
@FujikuraOnTour   Using ENSO fitting system I have seen good players load and unload the shaft 3 times prior to impact. Energy spent prior to impact is lost
