    I would absolutely love to see the Trackmen data on this guy with all his clubs. His numbers on his wedges have to be really unique.

    Shouldn’t his lob wedge be marked “LX” instead of “VI”…

      If he was using the proper roman numeral system it would be XVI but he is using VI ie: 6 as in 56

    43.00″ driver…. !

    Since I am never ever going to build myself a set of irons where every one is 37.5″, the most interesting thing in this bag is the short 43″ driver. With an SLDR 430 head, no less.

    It’s a little hard to get any comprehensive stats on his driving. He’s played in three PGA Tour events, and made the cut in one. The only driving distance stat I saw put him at 290.4 yards. With a long drive of 337, and 78.6 % of fairways hit.

    With a 43-inch driver. Forty-three inches.

    What are his distances for these clubs?

    Oh, and the swing is very similar to Moe Norman’s single axis swing. There are a number of people who teach a similar swing, the most well known is the Todd Graves Golf School. I believe Mr. Dechambeau taught himself to swing that way. Love it!!!! Nice to see that style swing finally make it into the winners circle.

    There is a company called 1 Iron Golf in the US that makes all the irons the same length. Very good site…1 IronGolf.com. Site has a lot of great info.

    I guess he likes it at that weight. After all, the shafts of the irons are all the same, so he’s maintaining the same feel for all of them, so he’s had them built that way. Totally psycho.

    Guys tommy armour makers of 845s had a set of irons available called EQL (equal) all shafts were same 6 iron length from about 1991 ish

      It’s a psycho bag.

      an important factor is to get all the head weights the same that is why it is difficult to make a set out of standard irons the short iron heads 8-9 and wedges will be too heavy the longer 4-5-6 iron heads too light these can be fixed with lead tape

    Jun 10, 2015 at 2:56 pm

    I’ve never seen different irons that were all the same length. Does he have them adjusted strong?

    • leo

      Jun 11, 2015 at 3:17 pm

      the 4 iron is a little strong at 20 degrees all others look to be standard lofts 46 pw and 4 degree increments through the 5 iron i had a set of single length irons built several years ago it takes some adjustments and trial s to grt the distance gaps correct

    So, where’s the WITB for TW when he shoots 85? That’s closer to what most of us shoot anyway. Just sayin.

    I meant to say the WITB VIDEO from the other article

    Wasn’t the driving iron quite a bit longer than the other irons in the WITB from the other article on WRX?

      U saw the video
      U know that it is

        Jun 10, 2015 at 1:01 pm

        Yeah, that’s why I brought it up, genius.

        • BustyMagoo

          Jun 10, 2015 at 2:55 pm

          Then why did you ask the question?

          • Andrew

            Jun 10, 2015 at 3:27 pm

            Because I didn’t know if I was wrong or he’d changed the length of the club or if I misunderstood. Why are you whining about the length of a golf club?

Why Dustin Johnson has a 64-degree TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge in his bag

Published

on

A 64-degree wedge, DJ?! But why…

To answer this question, and others about his equipment changes heading into 2018, I recently spoke with Dustin Johnson and his fitter, Keith Sbarbaro (VP of Tour Operations at TaylorMade). Since DJ currently has some unreleased TaylorMade drivers and woods in the bag, we discussed his long-awaited official switch from his Tour Preferred MB 2014 irons into the new P-730 DJ Proto irons, his decision to put in a P-790 3 iron, and his new 64-degree TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge — a club he plans to use throughout 2018. I also asked if he has any plans to switch out his Fujikura Speeder 661 Evolution 2.0 shaft in the near future.

See what Dustin and his fitter had to say about each of the changes below. Also, if you’re interested in hearing more from DJ, tune into our 19th hole podcast this week where he makes a guest appearance (or listen to the embed below).

The driver shaft

DJ says: “I don’t change driver shafts. I’ve had this shaft since I came out on Tour basically. I just like it.”

Keith says: “We mess around sometimes, but there’s just nothing better for him. And if it’s not broke… So when we do driver testing, we basically just have one variable to deal with.”

P-790 3 iron

DJ says: “I’m probably gonna go 4 thru pitching wedge [this year], then have a P-790 3 iron in the bag too. I got four wedges in the bag now, so I gotta get rid of either the [P-730] 3-iron or the 5 wood.”

Keith says: “He hits the P-790 3-iron about 260 yards, so it fills that yardage gap of his 5 wood.”

P-730 irons

DJ says: “I just got these blades in; they’re prototypes that are more like my Tour Preferreds. [The original DJ protos] were actually raw, but I waited for them to plate it. I’ve always played a chrome iron, and I prefer to look at that. But yea, these are gonna be in the bag (for 2018).”

Keith says: “The original [DJ protos] were milled and raw, and he was spinning them too much. With the chrome plating, he likes em way better.”

64 degree Hi-Toe TaylorMade wedge

DJ says: “I put this 64-degree wedge in play, and the 60-degree Hi-Toe too. I really like them. I just have a different face and grind than the normal ones. I like the more raw finish and can get more spin. The soles sit a bit closer to the ground… I’ve always had to manipulate my technique in the bunker, so the extra loft [on the 64-degree wedge] helps.”

Keith says: “The 64-degree helps because he’s a shut-face player. He’s had to manipulate his wrist to open the face [in the past]. Now, he can use a natural backswing… Rose was liking the 62-degree [Hi-Toe wedge] and was able to spin it so we kinda copied it for Dustin. He was hitting it from 50 yards and spinning it back 10 feet. I compare the Hi-Toe wedge to the Spider putter; it’s the one putter that everyone loved and it’s one of our best putters. This wedge reminds me of the Spider putters in that way. I think it’s the high CG. We could never get [the launch] low with spin because the ball would always shoot up the face. Now it doesn’t. I think it’s the high CG… [the face of his wedge] is more blasted.”
