According to, Tiger just dumped his trusty old Nike 19-degree SasQuatch 2 fairway wood, which he's had in the bag for close to six years, for a brand-new Nike VR_S Covert model with the same loft. After an opening round 66 that included nine birdies, it would seem that El Tigre made the right decision, and he agrees.

“The 5-wood that I used is the SQ, so it's, what, three versions ago,” Woods said. “I finally put one in play that I felt comfortable with. I hit it a little bit further, so there's a little bit bigger gap between the 3-iron and the 5-wood but I can hit this 5-wood a little bit higher, so I can actually take something off it and throw it up in the air, which is nice.

The new VR_S Covert that Tiger put in his bag this week at The WGC-Cadillac Championship is fitted with the same Mitsubishi Diamana BB 103x shaft as his old SasQuatch.
