    KuroKage XT is white and Silver TiNi is black/white. He´s playing the Silver TiNi for sure.

    and some of you are still going to say slots in irons don’t make a difference .Jason Day was considered overrated by many and had a couple of wins abbra-cadabra new equipment with face slots and he is the best player around coincidence maybe but it is definitely a contributing factor

      Probably tour issue only. If it’s even available through certain guys that can get tour issue stuff off the tour vans. I would say they would go for at least a grand.

    Finally a full TM bag gets a major.

  9. Jeff

    can someone explain the purpose of bending his irons 2.5-3 degrees strong? is it to essentially get the stronger loft in a shorter shaft for more control? So his 3 iron would be essentially play as a 2 iron in loft with a 3 iron shaft? When they say on the broadcast, or he says that he hit 4 iron, does that mean he’s essentially hitting 3 iron?

    • HIH

      Aug 16, 2015 at 10:46 pm

      I think it’s because he hits the ball so high already with his steep-pick-sweep attack, he needs to get the lofts down to control flight and spin at the same time. And yes, it doesn’t hurt to be able to hit them longer, which, essentially for him, means being able to hit them lower for his standards.
      If any mere mortal tried to hit his clubs nothing would get off the ground.

    • Scooter McGavin

      Aug 17, 2015 at 1:15 pm

      It’s probably so he gets the trajectory and distance gapping that he wants. If he tends to hit the ball really high it may make sense to strengthen his lofts so that each clubs has an ideal trajectory. I wouldn’t get too worried about the whole “if they say it’s a 4 is it really a 3” thing.

    • charles

      the more you bend the more bounce you take off them. he took off like 3-4 bounce on each club bending them 3-4 strong. they became more like blade irons with a sharper leading edge.
      he actually has 2-pw plus he’s normal 52 and 58 wages… the number on the club throw people off thats all.

  10. Matto

    Jul 26, 2015 at 11:41 pm

    Er, GolfWrx…I’m pretty sure Jason’s not playing 2 PW’s.
    Rsi TP 47 & a TP EF 47? Hmmmm.

    • Matto

      Jul 26, 2015 at 11:43 pm

      ….wait, maybe ones a draw bias, the other a neutral? Like Phil’s drivers?!

    • jdub

      Sep 15, 2015 at 6:08 pm

      He’s been doing that forever… his Golf Digest WITB from like 4 years ago he’s playing the set PW and a TaylorMade 48 degree wedge as well.

      I think his iron sets have always been bent a little strong plus the set style PW always flies longer than a more versatile blade-style wedge.

      For me personally, my AP2 PW at 46 degrees flies 10 yards farther than my 46 degree Vokey.

  11. Matto

    Jun 21, 2015 at 6:24 am

    He’s hitting a UDI 1iron.

    great win by the part time australian. i hope to see him back in the country some time before his retirement and give back to the grass roots organisations that helped nurture his career. at the very least, come back and play a tournament in Queensland.

    Anyway, love the wedge set up. must have supreme confidence to hit all kinds of shots with just the two.

      Part time Australian? You’re a complete idiot

    • Davo

      Aug 20, 2015 at 5:09 am

      Best way to set a great example for grass roots golf in Australia is to win loads if tournaments, more majors, become best world no.1. Etc. Oh and don’t lose the aussie accent

    • Travis

      Aug 30, 2015 at 9:25 pm

      He is doing more for Aussie golf by winning PGA events as an Aussie!

    This is awesome! Another victory for Jason. I love his attitude. He embodies the “Aussie Battler” and he’s also talented and classy. He shows more “Mongrel” than Adam Scott which I like. Adam Scott talks about taking down Rory but he doesn’t seem to really believe in himself, while Jason does I think. Hope he does well at the Masters!

    I’m an Aussie and have watched Jason work at his career since age 15. He is a legitimate hard worker and does not have any sense of entitlement. Seems a pretty well rounded personality also. You can be sure that when he is able to he will give back to golf in full measure and will support the game in Australia. He will not forget his roots.

  17. Peter

    Feb 9, 2015 at 11:51 am

    I thought the winners WITB was very ordinary. If he sticks to that make-up of bag he will never consistantley beat the top players in the world imo.

    • KJ

      Feb 9, 2015 at 1:41 pm

      Sorry, Peter, despite what your swing coach tells 25+ cappers like yourself, pros like Jason Day know exactly what type of ball flight and distance and shots that can be played with every stick in their bag. I assume you’re making reference to him carrying a deuce-PW (PW2), and his lack of hybrids, etc. If you are simply referring to his brand choice, then on both ends, you are showing your lack of intelligence regarding this game, and your immaturity.

      Also, look up how to properly spell “consistantley” [sic]…

      Armchair critics, SMH.

    Big JD fan. Serious power and hardcore competitor. Considering his upbringing, he has done an amazing job persevering to get to where he is today. Well done Jason!

    • Gary

      Feb 9, 2015 at 1:10 pm

      I am a big JD fan too. Although I am not particularly fond of his wedges I like most of the rest of his bag pretty well. Interesting that he uses a 16.5 degree fairway. Amateurs should probably take note of that as a 4 wood is quite a bit easier to hit than a 3 wood. He can potentially win a major with what he is using right now, and I hope he does.

    Nice win for TMAG today. Love the Mc irons, not sure about the R15. Hope TaylorMade slows down with the production introduction this year and give us buyers a chance to soak in whats being offered. Try a new club every other year like Titliest. There are enough loyalist to stick with the brand. Dont over saturate because even we are not that naive to golf clubs and their similarities. Great job Jason…. Awesome win

  20. BigBoy

    Feb 8, 2015 at 11:24 pm

    When i look at bags containing TM gear, i can’t help but think nothing TM have brought to the table since the R9 irons are worth buying.

      are you serious?. slots in irons have revolutionized the way irons are being made and how they perform

      • gunmetal

        Feb 10, 2015 at 1:57 pm

        Easy there. Slots have revolutionized marketing but that’s about it. Check out this video. Certainly not scientific, but clearly their not revolutionary

        • Rich

          Feb 12, 2015 at 6:55 pm

          I think the concept of slots in irons is revolutionary. The performance they provide however may not be. They work for me but may not work for others. Also, Crossfield isn’t saying the slots don’t work to provide forgiveness, he’s just saying that it may not be any better than other companies solutions for providing forgiveness. He’s making the argument that other companies can provide just as much forgiveness in their irons using other tech other than slots. He’s not saying slots don’t work.

            I have SLDR irons and I tried every cavity back iron before going with them. I think slots work. Titleist now uses them in their woods and one of the new Mizuno irons (MP55?) will have slots, although they are concealed. Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery and all that.

        • jcorbran

          Jul 27, 2015 at 1:48 am

          slots help people that pick the ball tremendously, doesn’t do anything for people that get the club head down before the ball but if you hit the ball low on the face, helps a lot.

          • leo

            Sep 23, 2015 at 3:41 pm

            the slots in the sole help on shots hit low on the face the slots in the face help on heel and toe hits. low heel and toe that just about covers all misses

    When they drove the players and caddies in golf carts back out to #18 tee Jason was the only one to let his tired caddie ride in the cart, and he rode standing up on the back. Made me like him even more. Glad he won… karma had its say…

    • MBA-J

      Feb 9, 2015 at 12:50 pm

      I noticed that as well. I also liked how he was holding his daughter while watching the coverage in the clubhouse. I was already a fan, but those actions further cemented it.

    I thought he had a matrix shaft in his driver and Justin rose had the Kuro Kage? I could be wrong but thats what I thought..

    2013: Emirates Australian Open T-6, ISPS HANDA World Cup Won
    2011: Australian PGA Championship T-9, Australian Open T-4

    Yep, looks like he doesn’t play, nor is he competitive in Australian tournaments.

    And I’m still a fan of that r15 headcover. You could wear it as a boxing glove and hit your fav punch shots all day. Wah wah

    Dec 13, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    To that point, I was shocked at how little the winner’s check was to Jordan Spieth in that event he won over there. And, if you’re an Aussie, do you turn down an invite from Greg Norman?

  26. Slimeone

    Dec 13, 2014 at 7:04 pm

    There’s just no prize money in Australian tournaments. Its pathetic really. It would be nice for Jason to make the effort but you can’t really blame him. It’s not like he command an appearance fee.

  27. Al385

    Dec 13, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    Jason Day, an Australian that does not want to play in Australia. Sorry, not a fan anymore.

      he’s got an american wife, half-american child and lives in the US

      sometimes you cbf to go home for xmas, especially with a young child – especially to play in the pitiful purse events they have in Aus

      That’s a pathetic excuse to not like someone. But, who knows, you may just be pathetic.

      Can’t blame a guy trying to better himself financially. You get little cash when you win in Australia, also the same goes for wgr points. Could be a whole host of reasons. Swing change, injury, not wanting to take his family around the world for a couple of weeks for little prize money. He is clearly looking out for his future, and family. Not the first aussie to do so and won’t be the last.
      Still a fan!

      He was injured during the last Australian season. He will be back to play at home for sure.

      • Rich

        Feb 9, 2015 at 7:55 am

        Couldn’t agree more. He has been injured in a few occasions or had niggling injuries he needed to rest over the Australian summer of golf. Yes, prize money is not as good as the states but if he’s fit, he will play again. Great win today. That tee shot on 16 in the playoff was pure guts.
