A little hard to follow on the heels of the U.S. Open (or any major event for that matter) but The Travelers, originally founded 69 years ago as the Insurance City Open, does a pretty solid job of keeping us fans energized. Travelers and the Greater Hartford Community Foundation have amassed a whopping $44M in donations over the years. I always find it fascinating to learn about the behind the scenes, positive impact the PGA events and their sponsors make across an array of special needs. As a Travelers customer, this helps ease the sting of those insurance premiums... a wee bit . A par 70 and a bit shorter than many stops, we can expect the winning score to be pushing the 20 under mark. Will DJ hold serve and defend last years victory? Will Bubba notch his 4th win here? A few of the big names took the week off but still a solid field. I'm a little surprised Speith is not attending given he won here in 2017. Who's on your radar for the win?
Here are some bag shots from Collin Morikawa, DJ, Rory and Doc Redman from this weeks Charles Schwab Challenge. Some notes: Rory worked with both SIM and SIM Max but likely moving to SIM MAX at 9.0 one click lower than his 10.5 SIM. DJ likely putting the Truss TM1 in the bag, but tested it alongside the Spider yesterday. With DJ you never know what he'll go with. Also the BBQ putter covers will be available to the public beginning today. All Photos Courtesy of TaylorMade
POWERED BY M5 DRIVER & '19 TP5X GOLF BALL, DUSTIN JOHNSON CAPTURES WGC-MEXICO CHAMPIONSHIP Johnson's 21st career victory is the second global win for TaylorMade’s New M5 & M6 Drivers featuring the company’s ground-breaking Injected Twist Face technology; joins stablemate Tiger Woods as only players to win same WGC event three times. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: After gaming the M6 driver en route to victory at the Saudi International last month, Johnson made the switch into a 10.5° M5 driver after seeing more ball speed and less spin in recent testing sessions. Per usual, he has it equipped with his favorite Fujikura Speeder Evolution 661 X Tour Spec 2.0 shaft. In addition to the M5 driver, DJ also recently added a 15° M5 fairway to his bag, armed with Project X's HZRDUS Black X shaft; the same shaft he carried in his fairway(s) last season. Dustin’s second victory of the season is the third win for the new 2019 TP5/x golf ball (Johnson & Fowler); DJ’s preferred golf ball is the '19 TP5x, stamped #1. Like last season, DJ continues to play the P730 DJ Proto irons in 4-PW. As he has for most of his recent career, DJ has them equipped with True Temper's Dynamic Gold X100 shafts. A major proponent of the MG wedges, Dustin opted for 52° & 60° lofts this week in addition to a 64° Hi-Toe. As usual, he has them equipped with his trusted KBS Tour 120S shafts. Johnson has found remarkable success with the Spider Tour over the last few years, using it to escalate him to #1 in the World. With his win in Mexico, he is expected to elevate to #2 in the OWGR and has the potential to once again claim the #1 position the following week. With the victory, Johnson continues his remarkable streak of winning at least one PGA TOUR event to 12 consecutive seasons, the longest active streak on Tour.

What's going on MGS members? My name is Kyle and I am from Ohio- I've been using MGS for almost a year now but decided recently to start posting and looking at the forums to help my game out, and see what cool new equipment is out there! I used to be a College Baseball player, but now my passion is golf- I would play everyday if I could and almost wish that I would have started playing earlier in life I started playing in 2015 - Currently on the road to break 80- best round an 85.. I am not one of those golfers that will overstate my skills or how far I hit it because of an ego thing- If i want to be a single digit handicap then I gotta work for it golf is like baseball in that way !
