    Where’s the 2 Iron that Day used all 4 days of the Players?

    Why would he carry a pw and 47 degree wedge. That must be a mistake.

    That putter he was using . . . not a fan.

      He’s a fan of it.

        He’s a fan of it now but the last time he had it in the bag you could tell he wasn’t.

      $1.89 Mill says he’s a fan.

    Fantastic win at the Players. I think the AeroBurner fairway may have to go back in the bag though.

    Anyone who understands golf clubs knows that you cannot bend a 3 wood to 14.5 degrees. When you weld the sole to the cup face you set the only angle possible. Let’s go back to geometry class and quit making golf something it is not. Math, and Physics make these clubs work not the name on the bottom. But that does not sell does it? A oops sorry to all you golf companies that your parent companies are trying to dump.

    And play with 8 clubs you will score better. 4, 6 8 PW and choke down!

    • Adrian

      May 16, 2016 at 7:15 am

      You can bend woods, fairway woods, and hybrids if they have the right hosel on them. It is a delicate operation but it can be done. Day wants an open face angle on the club to reduce it draw tendencies and that is one way to accomplish it. By having the club opened up a degree or two it is also delofts it. Face angle adjustments always change loft though lie angle can be done without affecting loft.

      • Mike

        May 16, 2016 at 8:57 pm

        OR.. you could just buy the M1 fairway wood and open the face using the adjustable tip, as designed. That’s what Dustin Johnson did. His 17 degree HL is opened to 15 degrees loft at 4 degrees open-faced. I tried this myself and it works great. It makes it much easier to take the left side out of play.

    Well this will increase the value for acquisition of TaylorMade……lol

      May 15, 2016 at 8:09 pm

      Yea I would think having the clear cut number 1 in your stable wouldn’t hurt!

    Am I seeing two different putters? I see flat weight ports in one, and the round ports in the other. He’s using the putter with the round ones, correct?

    Interesting to see the wear pattern on the flange/toe corner on the putter.

    You forgot to list the Cortisone shot

    • Jack Nash

      Mar 28, 2016 at 12:43 pm

      At least it wasn’t a roid shot, which we know for years wasn’t tested for. That’s why certain players had joint problems. Specially the knees.

      • JD

        Mar 28, 2016 at 6:21 pm

        Cortisone is a steroid and can cause as many if not more problems in athletes. When you take away pain it gives you a sense that body part isn’t injured and potentially not heal properly. More and more athletes are moving to PRP injections.

    We need to get the pga tour player m.o. to catch on off the course. When we close a business deal, we need our wives and children to come celebrate with us.

    Had no idea you could bend a 3w 2* strong! Crazy.

    • Keith McCaslin

      Mar 26, 2016 at 10:27 am

      Doesn’t make much sense. Just play the 3 not the 3HL, less loft

      • Zak Kozuchowski

        Mar 26, 2016 at 10:50 am

        He likes having an open face angle, so both his driver and fairway wood are delofted 2 degrees.

      • Nolanski

        Mar 27, 2016 at 7:16 pm

        He doesn’t want to hook it.

    Nice win. Play till the hole is in the cup. Most would have probably chalked it up as a loss but a seasoned winner grinds till the be. That’s why I am watching him and not the other way around. Great job Jason.

      This was very confusing to read.

        Me too. It’s an example of why we shouldn’t text on a phone while flying through turbulence.

    The weight settings on that driver are as neutral as it can be.

  15. tony

    Mar 21, 2016 at 9:15 am

    what’s way more interesting is the fact the SW is labeled E3 on what I assume to be the driver. That must feel like a baseball bat.

    Interesting he chooses to play the HL (max/game improvement) 3 wood instead of the TP.

    • Billy Madison

      Mar 21, 2016 at 9:09 am

      HL just means High Launch, it has nothing to do with being Max/Game Improvement. And by the way, “TP” is just a designator for an aftermarket shaft.

      • tony

        Mar 21, 2016 at 9:12 am

        incorrect re the tp shaft. tp here in JD’s fairway is an indicator for a tour preferred head shape (smaller, shallower profile, more open face angle, etc). tp can also have to do with the shaft but he is using a TP head design which is different than the non-TP fairway head

        • mhendon

          May 16, 2016 at 10:44 am

          That’s definitely not a retail m2 head. Are they making a TP M2 head and is it available to the public?

    • tony

      Mar 21, 2016 at 9:10 am

      it is a TP head.

      • dapadre

        Mar 22, 2016 at 7:30 am

        Yes you are correct, I stupidly assumed the HL meant also non TP ( though i saw TP, thought it was a typo).

    One of the great bunker shots on 18 under that much pressure for the up & down. Well done JDay. Grinding win.

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.”
