Posted at 12:31 PM by David Dusek

Before winning the 2009 Chevron World Challenge on Sunday, Jim Furyk's last win was at the 2007 Canadian Open. But that win, coupled with his 11 top-10 finishes and two runner-up performances, helped push him up to No. 6 in the world rankings this week.

Jim Furyk Switches to TaylorMade R9 Driver with New Mitsubishi Kai'li Shaft

Posted at 10:00 PM by David Dusek

Jim Furyk Friday Quail Hallow Jim Furyk had been using a Titleist 909D2 driver since the 2008 Barclays Scottish Open, the event immediately preceding last season's British Open at Royal Birkdale. However, this week in Charlotte at the Quail Hallow Championship, Furyk is using a TaylorMade R9 with an X-stiff, 60-gram Mitsubishi Diamana Kai'li shaft.

Although his swing is not textbook, and he can't be classified as a bomber, Jim Furyk has been one the straightest and most consistent drivers on the PGA Tour for years. In 2007 he ranked third in driving accuracy, hitting 74.37% of the fairways. This season he is hitting 69.72%, ranking him 23rd in the category.

According to Mitsubishi Rayon, Furyk is the first player on the PGA Tour to put the Kai'li shaft into play.

Meaning Blue Diamond in Hawaiian, the Kai'li has a stiff tip section and slightly lower torque than the popular Mitsubishi Rayon Blue Board shaft. The Kai'li also utilizes a process that applies the carbon fibers that create the shaft in several different angles for a more consistent feel. When compared with the Blue Board shaft, the Kai'li should produce a lower, flatter ball flight and less spin.

The shaft will not be available in the United States until early 2010 and will retail for about $400.

Furyk's new driver makes the cut

Posted at 11:43 AM by David Dusek

Furyk_titleist909_600x450 SOUTHPORT, England -- Jim Furyk had been using the TaylorMade r7 SuperQuad driver for almost two years, but now he seems to have found its successor.

At the AT&T National two weeks ago he used Titleist's yet-to-be-released 909 D2. The club must have passed Furyk's first test because he has it in the bag here at Birkdale. In fact, he had two in his bag, each with a different shaft.

The 909D2 (click on the image for a better look) has a 460cc head and is designed to combine a high-launch angle with workability. Adam Scott has also played with the 909, but last week at the Barclay's Scottish Open he had his Titleist 905R in the bag.

Look for a detailed report on the new Titleist drivers in The Shop and in an upcoming issue of GOLF Magazine.
