The Waste Management Phoenix Open is, by most any measure, the seventh major -- closely behind The Players and the John Deere Classic. And special tournaments mean special gear from major manufacturers.
This week at TPC Scottsdale, both Callaway Golf and Bettinardi have released some beer-inspired putter headcovers for the tournament, and they're spectacular.
Callaway's cover is not only original, but it's practical. The Callaway and Odyssey team created a special headcover that has a velco-able attachment to make it look like a draft pour pull on it. On the pull portion, it says "Pour It In" (implying putts), and it has "Please Putt Responsibly" on the side.
The nice thing about the draft pull is it's like a handle you can use to pull the putter out of the bag.

The Bettinardi team came up with their own beer-themed Phoenix Open putter cover. On one side of the cover is a line of Phoenix Open stick-people fans, all holding a beer and the words "Party On!" on it. On the other side is a stick person wearing a foam dome beer helmet, chugging down some brews. There's a sign saying "Sold Out" with the T being a callout of the Bettinardi hive logo. (It's on one of the foam dome cans, too.)
One of our most popular releases of the year, the 'Party On!' Headcovers (Mallet too!) will be releasing tomorrow at 10 am CST in the Hive! A limited 'Party On!' Players Towel, 'Party On!' Marker, & a 'Party On!' Koozie are also set to release. Good Luck! #wastemanagementopen pic.twitter.com/Vn52zC9q4L

These were actually available to the public for a short time and in limited supply, but you can kiss that goodbye now.
