Inside the Ropes with John Merrick

We walked a few holes with Titleist ambassador John Merrick during a recent practice round (click here for photos from the round). John is a PGA Tour rookie who graduated from the Nationwide Tour after a successful 2006 season, which included a playoff win at the Peek'n Peak Classic. After finishing 21st on the Nationwide Tour money list last year, John became the first player in Tour history to improve his priority status by finishing tied for fourth at the PGA Tour Qualifying School.

John plays a full bag of Titleist equipment, including the Pro V1x golf ball, 907D2 driver (8.5°, Aldila NV 75), PT 906F3 prototype fairway (15°, Aldila NV 85), PT 585.H utility (19°, Aldila NV 105), Forged 670 irons (3-P, True Temper Dynamic Gold), Vokey Design prototype wedges (54° & 60°, True Temper Dynamic Gold), and a Scotty Cameron Newport putter.

    I completely understand; that surely is one sweet putter in the photo though.

    Our policy is to not comment on future products that may or may not be in development.  However, you can view a prototype Tour-only model of the putter you are referring to <a href="/2007/05/08/more-scotty-tour-putters/" rel="nofollow">here</a>.

    Out of interest, I hear that Titleist and Scotty Cameron are going to be releasing a plumbers neck version of the Red X. When are these likely to be in golf shops and have they started to show up on tour yet?

    We'll try to catch up with Tommy soon.

    I would also like to see a story or something recognizing Tommy Armour III.  Tommy doesn't ever seem to get any air time with player interviews or in the blog.  Come on, let me see some TAIII!  Maybe a good what's in the bag pic...

    See the remarks <a href=" rel="nofollow">here</a>.

    What size tip does the 906F3 have?  What are the differences between the 906F3 and the 906F2?  Thanks again for a great blog.

  8. Robert Sellman

    We'll be sure to get one the next time we catch up with John.

    Can we get a bag photo?
