Retief Goosen's 2009 British Open Clubs

Posted at 1:14 PM by David Dusek | Categories: British Open, Putters, Retief Goosen, TaylorMade

Retief-Goosen-Turnberry_600x425 While many competitors at the 2009 British Open have chosen to add a 2-iron to their bag and remove their 5wood, it's interesting to note that two-time U.S. Open winner Retief Goosen is carrying both at Turnberry.

The popular thinking has been that shots hit with a 5-wood, which would naturally fly high, would be pushed around by the wind. A 2-iron, while not as good from light rough, can more easily be hit low, beneath the wind.

Goosen, who carries a 5-wood in his standard set, removed his 3-iron to make room for the 2-iron.

Here is a complete list of the clubs Goosen, who shot 67-70, is using at Turnberry.

DRIVER: TaylorMade r7 SuperQuad (8.5°) with Fujikura RE AX TP 85 shaft
FAIRWAY WOODS: TaylorMade Tour Burner (14.5°) with Fujikura ROMBAX TP75 shaft, R9 (19°) with a Fujikura Motore F1 shaft
IRONS: TaylorMade Tour Preferred (2, 4-PW)
WEDGES: TaylorMade rac (54°, 64°)
PUTTER: Yes! Tracy
BALL:  TaylorMade TP Black
