Gear Notes: 2010 Masters

Posted at 1:47 PM by David Dusek

Phil-Mickelson-Callaway-Driver_450x600 Callaway
Phil Mickelson cracked the crown of his Callaway FT-9 Tour Authentic driver at the Shell Houston Open. (A nearly identical driver, the FT Tour, is now available to the public.) Like a patient in critical need of an organ transplant, the club was flown to San Diego on Easter Sunday, where it was met at the airport by the head of Callaway's R&D team, Dr. Alan Hocknell.

According to Callaway, the company, "performed an 'unprecedented repair,' removing the body from the clubface while never taking off the shaft in order to ensure that the loft and lie remained secure."

Hocknell said, “We decided to remove the carbon composite body from the face, and we’ve never done that before, so everyone was a bit nervous. But through a lot of teamwork, we had a new body and weights installed by 1:30 p.m. on Monday."

Meanwhile, back in Augusta, Mickelson texted Hocknell: "How bad is it, Doc? Is she gonna make it?"

Needless to say, the patient made a full recovery, was flown back cross-country, and helped Mickelson win his third green jacket. For the week, Phil hit 60% of the fairways and averaged 297 yards per drive.

YE-Yang-TaylorMade-Putter TaylorMade
Y.E. Yang, winner of the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine, pulled his Odyssey White Hot 2-Ball putter out of his bag before the start of the Masters and used a TaylorMade Monza Spider Vicino (right) during the championship. Yang took 115 putts at Augusta and averaged an impressive 1.6 putts per green in regulation.

Mike Weir, Henrik Stenson and John Rollins all put new TaylorMade Burner SuperFast drivers in the bag for the first time at the Masters. Sergio Garcia became the first player to put TaylorMade's yet-to-be-released R9 SuperDeep driver into play. He hit 68% of the fairways for the week and averaged 285 yards per drive.

Titleist
Adam Scott, whose tie for 18th marks his best performance at Augusta since 2002, had been playing a Titleist 909 D2 driver this season. But in order to get more roll on the firm fairways at Augusta National, the Australian decided to play a lower-flying 909 D3 driver instead.

Matteo Manassero, who at age 16 was the youngest player to ever compete in a Masters, also finished as the tournament's low amateur with a final score of four over par. Manassero, who has a bag filled with Titleist clubs, swapped out his AP2 3-iron in favor of a higher-flying hybrid club, a Titleist 909H (21°), so he could stop the ball more quickly on Augusta's firm greens. The young Italian star plans on turning professional in less than three weeks, so look for him to become a Titleist staff player soon.

Turnberry Will Demand Driving Accuracy

Posted at 9:10 AM by David Dusek

This week via Twitter, I asked Paul Casey what this week's winner will have to do well at Turnberry.

His answer was simple: "Drive the ball well. Look at the two previous Turnberry winners, Norman and Price. Both drove it brilliantly. Same this week."

Casey's coach, GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher and CBS on-course analyst Peter Kostis, told me, "Drive it poorly here and you won't finish."

To avoid Turnberry's deep rough and handle a forecast that calls for a mix of sun, rain and wind, players will need to be especially dialed-in with their drivers. For Casey, that means he's got to be accurate with his Nike SQ Tour (8.5°).

According to TaylorMade, Rod Pampling practiced on Tuesday with an R9 460 that was cut down to just 43.5 inches. That's an inch and a half shorter than standard Adam-Scott-Wed-British_600length. Generally, a shorter driver will allow for more control and feel, but less power. The effect is similar to a baseball player choking down on his bat.

According to Titleist, Adam Scott (right) tested a shorter driver in the days leading up to the British Open. The Aussie has experimented with a 909 D2 (9.5°) with a UST Proforce V2 86 shaft that is just 44.25” long.

Adam Scott goes back to a 2-Iron at Colonial

Posted at 10:40 AM by David Dusek

Colonial Country Club's golf course is not especially long by PGA Tour standards, and in the sunny and wind conditions, the fairways tend to play firm and fast. So Adam Scott has decided to put a Titleist AP2 2-iron into his bag this week. Interestingly, the 2-iron actually has a True Temper X100 3-iron shaft to make it feel more for added stiffness and control.

New hybrid wins another convert

Posted at 10:19 AM by David Dusek

Todd_hamilton_royal_troon My first experience with a hybrid club didn't work out so well. I bought one in 2004 after Todd Hamilton famously used his all over Royal Troon to win the British Open. After he chipped from the fairway to within a few feet in his playoff with Ernie Els (right), hybrids were all the rage.

But the hybrid I bought to replace my 3-iron wound up being too iron-like. True, it was more forgiving than the 3-iron, but the head was small, and it just didn't instill a lot of confidence when I looked at it from the address position. After about three months, it was gone and the 3-iron was back.

But I recently decided it was time for me to give hybrids another try. After all, even Adam Scott, one of golf's best ball strikers, has yanked a long-iron in favor of a Titleist 909H hybrid. "It's just so easy," he told me recently. "I just feel that getting this hybrid into a par 5 is like chalk and cheese compared to a 2-iron."

I've never carried a 2-iron, but as a 10-handicapper I'm pretty good with my long irons. Still, after seeing GOLF Magazine's recent article about new hybrids and thinking about what Scott said, I figured it was time to give the Swiss Army Knife of golf clubs another try.

So this weekend, before my first round of the season, I once again pulled my 3-iron and dropped in a new 21° hybrid. The results were amazing, and my 3-iron has found a new home in the back of my closet.

Even though I played in a turtleneck, wool vest and wind shirt, my first tee shot with the hybrid flew higher and straighter than the 3-iron would have. From light rough on the next hole, the club muscled a shot effortlessly into the air, and I watched it land softly on the green.

I even used it to chip. The first time I tried, from the fairway, the 21° of loft got the ball into the air with backspin, and it stopped more quickly than I had anticipated. Later, I intentionally hit my hybrid chips a little thin, and the ball rolled beautifully.

Here are a few things to think about if you are in the market for a hybrid:

1. Do you sweep or dig? If you take small divots with your irons, or no divots at all, a fairway wood-style hybrid will probably match your sweeping swing well. If you have a steep angle of attack and take large divots, an iron-style hybrid might be better.

2. Pay attention to the shaft. My first hybrid had a steel shaft that was different from both my irons and my woods. The hybrid I tried this weekend had a graphite shaft that was very similar to the one in my 5-wood. Getting fitted for the right shaft is crucial.

3. Watch the gaps. Ideally, you want consistent gaps between your irons. If you remove an iron in favor of a hybrid, pay close attention to the gap between your highest-lofted fairway wood and the hybrid, as well as the hybrid and your longest iron. A hybrid with the same loft as a 3-iron will likely fly a little farther because the shaft will likely be a little longer. At the very least, get to a launch monitor and learn your precise distances with each club. If an awkward gap is created between your new hybrid and your longest iron, talk to a club fitter about the best solution to the problem.

Adam Scott playing a new driver and putter

Posted at 9:24 AM by David Dusek

MARANA, Ariz. -- Adam Scott has made two subtle adjustments to his set makeup that he hopes will give him an edge this week at the WGC-Accenture Match Play.

The 28-year-old Australian has decided to switch from Titleist's 909D2 driver to the company's 909D3 (9.5°). According to Scott, the reason for the change has to do with spin and control.

"I'm using the new Pro V1 (2009)," he told me outside the locker room Monday at the Ritz-Carlton Course at Dove Mountain. "I'm just finding with the D2 that I'm turning it over a little too easily."

Scott told me that the 909D2, like the driver he used for most of 2008, Titleist's 905R, has a slight draw bias. With the previous version of the Pro V1 ball, it wasn't a problem. But the new Pro V1 spins a little more off the tee for Scott. "With a little bit softer golf ball, a little bit spinnier golf ball, I should say, it's easier to turn it over."

That means Scott was drawing the ball too much and too often with the D2 driver. With the D3, Scott started producing the ball flight he wants to see more easily. (To learn more about the 909 driver series, click here.)

Adamscottcameronputter1The other change for Scott is his putter. He has recently switched from a Newport-style blade putter to a mallet.

"When I was a kid, I putted with a mallet until I was about 17," he said. "I was just sitting at home this winter and I took a mallet back down to the putting green and really liked it. I decided that I had to call Scotty [Cameron] and have him make me something like it. He whipped one up in about a week!"

The putter is based on a design that Cameron made from a collector's convention. On his Web site, he calls the design a Tour SSS Coupe. It features a double bend shaft and is designed to be swung on an arc like a blade putter. Along the crown there are eight white lines and one red line to help Scott take dead aim at his target. Click on the photo for a better look.

"I mean, the alignment aid is probably the biggest thing," Scott says. "It's so easy to line up. It's like it just swings itself, which is a nice feeling. I don't have to do anything with the shoulders and hands."

At the only PGA Tour event where Scott has used the putter, the Sony Open, he finished tied for second and averaged only 27 putts per round.

Adam Scott's British Open clubs

Posted at 3:22 PM by David Dusek

Adamscott_600x450SOUTHPORT, ENGLAND -- Heading into this British Open championship, Sergio Garcia was tagged as the "Best Player to Have Never Won a Major." And after his near-miss last season at Carnoustie and win at The Players, it makes sense.

But Adam Scott is ranked higher (No. 4) than Garcia (No. 7) and possesses one of the best swings in golf. The knock on Scott has always been that his short game and putting don't match the caliber of his long game, but Thursday at Royal Birkdale he posted an even-par 70 to finish just one shot off the lead in a tie for fourth.

Here are the clubs he used:

Driver:                   Titleist Pro Titanium 905R (8.5°)
Fairway woods:      Titleist 906F4 (13.5°)
Hybrid:                   Titleist 585H (17°)
Irons:                      Titleist AP2 (2-9)
Wedges:                 Titleist Vokey 200 Series (49°), Spin Milled (55°)
Putter:                   Scotty Cameron for Titleist Newport GSS
Ball:                       Titleist Pro V1
