Graeme McDowell gets new irons and wedge, but keeps old woods
Graeme McDowell may have signed a new endorsement deal with Srixon, but a few of his old clubs made their way into his new bag. Via Twitter on Wednesday he listed the equipment he plans to use this week at Kapalua.
The driver he refers to in that last message, specifically, is a Callaway FT Tour (8.5°) with an Aldila RIP 60 shaft. The hybrids are Adams Idea Pro (17°, 21°). The 17° has an Aldila NVS 85 shaft, and the 21° has an Aldila VooDoo XVS8 shaft. His putter is from the Odyssey White Hot line.
I spoke with a representative from Cleveland/Srixon via e-mail on Wednesday. The company was aware that the 2010 U.S. Open champ might keep using some of his Callaway and Adams clubs for a while. According to the source, McDowell has been testing Cleveland's Launcher UltraLite TL 310 driver, so look for that club to possibly become his new gamer in the weeks ahead.
