    Does anyone know what kind of golf pride grips she’s using? The red ones? They look like the tour velvet but just was curious.

    Astounding she could be this far along in her career and they finally get her into the correct lie angle for her putter??? (I know its a “new” stance, relatively speaking, but….)
    She hits a low ball. Surprised at the 9.5 driver and even more surprised by a 13º 3W. And even more surprised to see they seem to recognize this in the adoption of high launch S300 shafts.
    Great to see her win. I have horrible food allergies like she does and have been rooting for her ever since I learned that about MW.
    She seems to do OK with beer and twerking though! ha!

    Been a fan since she started, finally got over the yips, seemed very calm and poised, Does present herself very well and nice to see an American in lime light, Good going Michelle.

    She can really compress the ball. Her swing speed has got to be in the 110 mph neighborhood.

    What is that grind on her lob wedge?

    • Chuck

      Nike “Tow Sweep” grind. Getting lots of attention and rapidly growing use on tour.

      • Billy

        “Toe Sweep” Not Tow truck sweep.

          Absolutely correct. Thanks for the correction that somehow auto-corrected incorrectly when originally typed. Maybe the capitalized T threw off my spellcheck.

          You mean it’s a “Tow Mader Sweep grind”

    Dumb question…

    I seem to recall being astonished at MW using X100’s in her irons, and something equally boss in her woods.

    When did she go to S300 High-launch?

    I’m so disappointed. I was watching NBC’s excellent slo-mo video of her compressing a mid-iron shot and thinking, ‘Damn, that is what a PGA Tour player does to an X100.’

      I’m speculating that she switched after her wrist injury…

    The Red on the Covert products looks ridiculous. How about an all black, deep gray or white head offering.

    Want that putter

    • Chuck

      She’s a poised and an elegant-looking young woman with a beautiful golf swing.

      But when it comes to putting, I don’t want to watch Michelle Wie, or think about her, or even what sort of putter she uses. She’s the television version of the yips.

      If she could putt, this would have been her sixth major. She’s a putting train wreck.

      She obviously has found something with this new, unwatchable stance and stroke. Good for her. I can’t watch it.

        You speak of how good looking she is…and then say you cant watch her putt? That’s her best looking angle.

      • Jerry Noble

        Jun 23, 2014 at 1:30 pm

        She can putt, and I love to watch her do it.

      • Uphill both ways

        Jun 26, 2014 at 11:19 pm

        WHAT?! How can you NOT watch her bend over? Are you an LPGA Tour player? That’s the only way that would make sense.

    • Chuck

      Further, regarding her putter this week; from GD, noting that she went to a 4.5 degree flatter lie angle on that Nike Method putter:

Tommy Fleetwood’s bag is as awesome as he is (Tommy Fleetwood WITB)

Published

on

I’m obsessed with this guy. If there was a movie about his life, Aaron Taylor Johnson would play him…can we make that happen?

His bag has taken over for my past obsession with Charles Howell III, David Toms, and Rocco Mediate. I’m drawn to players that tweak a bit, it keeps it fun for me on Getty Images at 3 a.m.

Much like a Bernhard Langer, there is no telling what OEM sticks will land in Fleetwood’s bag. It’s awesome and a sign of the non-contract “eat what you kill” mentality shared by some of the biggest names out there (BK and Patrick Reed to name a couple).

Tommy has messed around quite a bit in the past two years with his bag and the fun part is, he’s not afraid to shake it up.

Here is a partial list of clubs that were previously in the bag since ’17 leading up to his current setup

  • TaylorMade M3 driver (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Titleist 917 D2 driver (@ 8.5 degrees) (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 3-wood (13 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 5-wood (Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 80TX shaft)
  • Titleist 917 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Titleist TS3 3-wood (12.75 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Nike VR Pro Blades
  • Callaway MD4 wedges
  • Ping G410 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Ping G410 7-wood (18 degrees) (Mitsubishi Diamana BF 80T shaft)
  • Odyssey 2-Ball (plumbers neck)

His grips are also a fun one, he goes Blue Golf Pride TVC in his woods, Iomic Sticky in his irons, and black Golf Pride TVC in his wedges. God, I love this guy!

Tommy Fleetwood WITB @The Open

Driver: TaylorMade M6 (9 degrees @7.5)
*has lofted up a bit, his driver has been down to 6.5 I’ve heard.
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (45 inches)

3-wood: TaylorMade M6 (15 degrees @14)
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (42.5 inches)
*was in a Ping G410 until the Scottish Open where he switched into the M6.

Irons: TaylorMade GAPR Lo (@18.75), Srixon Z785 (4-iron, 23 degrees), TaylorMade P7TW (5-9)
Shafts: GAPR: Project X 6.5 (39.5 inches), 4-iron: Project X 6.5 (38.5 inches), 5-9: Project X 6.5 (38 inches @ 5-iron, minus 1/2 inch from there) (26, 30, 34, 38, 42 degrees)

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 (47, 52, 55, 60 degrees)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Wedge notes: 48.10F (bent to 47) Tour chrome finish
52.08F raw
56.10 (bent 55) raw
60.08 raw

Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro #3
Grip: Super Stroke Mid Slim 2.0


Quick thought: I do see a specific trend when it comes to free agents, and it’s mildly telling. Keep in mind I understand that it’s not 100 percent, but the trends are there.

In woods and wedges specifically, TaylorMade seems to be a popular choice in the overall woods category for non-signed players and Vokey is hands down the wedge of choice. Makes sense in my opinion, I’m not a big “best company” guy, but I do understand the choice. Both companies make and have made extremely high-performing sticks for many years. Consistency in anything is a hard opponent to beat. When Nike bounced out of clubs Rory, BK, Casey, and a few others put Vokeys straight in, and a BK and Casey put TM woods in the bag. (Just an example for context)

Anyway, Tommy Fleetwood is four back going into the final round. I have a weird feeling if it blows he could be holding a trophy.
