Young Japanese superstar Hideki Matsuyama captured his first PGA Tour victory at The Memorial by edging Kevin Na on the first playoff hole. Matsuyama birdied the 18th hole in regulation for the fourth straight day to force the playoff, which he won by hitting 3-wood off the tee after breaking his driver on the 72nd hole. Here's a complete list of his winning gear: 

DRIVER: Srixon ZR-30 (10.5°) with Graphite Design Tour AD shaft

FAIRWAY WOODS: Callaway RAZR X (15°) with Graphite Design Tour AD shaft

HYBRIDS: Tour Stage X-UT (19°) with MItsubishi Diamana shaft 

IRONS: Srixon Z-545 (3), Srixon Z-945 (4-PW) with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shafts

WEDGES: Cleveland CG17  (54°, 60°) with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts

First Look: Cleveland Smart Square putters

Posted at 11:57 AM by Mark Dee

SmartSquare comp

With its newest mallet, Cleveland’s betting it’s hip -- or at least accurate -- to be square. Call it 23% more accurate, to be precise. That’s how the company compares the Smart Square to a certain, unnamed putter with a similar (if rounder) set of geometric alignment aids.

According to Cleveland, the parallel and perpendicular lines formed by the pair of squares frame the ball better than circles while providing better feedback to catch misalignment.

The high-MOI design is available in heel- and center-shafted models at standard lengths, or as an almost-belly length of 39 inches. The longer version adds 40 grams to the head (upping it to 400 total), and utilizes a 158-gram grip (about 2.5 times heavier than normal), which acts as a counterbalance to smooth out your stroke.

Expect to see the putter on shelves starting November 15th. Price checks in at $139.99 for standard lengths; $179.99 for almost-belly length.

Cleveland’s updated custom-fitting carts and fitting “displays” come stocked with interchangeable wedge heads and shafts. The carts include a choice of three head styles (588 RTX, 588 RTX CB or 588 Forged) in an assortment of lofts, bounce or lie angles. Specifically, the 588 RTX (46° to 60° lofts) comes in high bounce, standard or low bounce options, plus 2° upright, standard, or 2° flat lies. There’s also a selection of nine wedge shafts so you can dial in a desired flight and feel.

The company’s fitting displays (a pared down version of the carts) include four wedge heads -- 588 RTX (56°), 588 RTX CB (56°), 588 RTX Low Bounce (56°), and 
588 RTX CB (50°) -- and five wedge shafts. A complementary fitting app includes product specs and info, recommended fitting processes, custom shaft and grip options, and a searchable database of pitching wedge lofts (all brands) from the past five years to help choose proper wedge lofts to match your irons.

Cleveland's Classic driver combines timeless looks with modern technologies.

Posted at 10:28 AM by David Dusek

Late at night, after everyone else has left the Huntington Beach, Calif., headquarters of Cleveland Golf, the engineers and clubs designers must be using a Wayback Machine to go back in time.
 
Last season they released the Mashie, a retro-looking hybrid with an unfinished crown. Sure, it's made of stainless steel, but the Mashie looks like something your great-grandfather used, right down to its pom-pom-topped knit headcover.
 
If you liked the Mashie, check out the Classic, which Cleveland plans to release in early 2012. The Classic is made using a modern material, in this case titanium, but it's the club's old-school look that will get everyone talking.

Cleveland-Classic-Sole_600  
With a mahogany-colored crown, a brass-colored sole (complete with a "1") and a faux face insert designed, the Classic looks like a driver Ben Hogan or Byron Nelson might have used. 

Even the script "Classic" on the crown, which should help golfers position the ball in the sweet spot at address, harkens back to a time when swings were homegrown and clubs were hand-carved.

Cleveland-Classic-Crown_600
But while the Classic’s retro styling recall the Golden Age of America car culture, under the hood the Classic is a thoroughly 21st century club. Nate Radcliffe, Cleveland Golf's metalwoods development manager, said there is a lot of technology built into the Classic. 

"It's got the biggest face of any driver we've ever made," Radcliffe said. "It's deeper and it has more surface area. That gives it a lot of forgiveness. It's also got variable face thickness, and the thin areas around the outside of the face really help you maintain ball speed when you hit the ball off the center."
 
Two versions of the Classic will be available, one weighing 270 grams and the other weighing 290 grams, a trend Cleveland established when it made three versions of the Ultralight drivers, each tipping the scale at a different weight. The idea is to offer drivers that appeal to a broader range of players; slow swingers will be able to swing the lightest models faster for added power, but hard-hitters will get a little more stability from the slightly heavier models.
 
The stock shaft for the Classic driver will be a Miyazaki C. Kua and you should start to see the club in your local pro shops in late January for about $299.
