    He bombs that driver. I was at the final round of the WMO yesterday and his drive on 18 was WAY past DeLaet and Kim’s drives/

    Thought he used to use a Srixon driver but I guess not. Whatever he’s using he knows what to do with them. Be surprised if he’s not the next member of the Major club real soon

    So…. Confusing photo’s. Was he using the z-965 irons or the z-945 irons.

    Beautiful shaft in that driver.

    Most of the irons shown in the bag are z 965 not 945. The 8 iron shown with lead tape is a 945 however.

    • Tom

      Feb 5, 2017 at 11:12 pm

      or 965 pro series proto

    • Bam234569

      Feb 6, 2017 at 11:36 am

      Right , but the 3rd photo in there is an 8 iron that is not a Z-745
      Then later on there is an 8 iron that is a z-745. That’s why I am confused

    This guy can play. I wouldn’t be surprised if he keeps this up and wins a major or two in 2017.

    Anyone else love the loads of lead on the back of his irons? Thats my kind of guy. lol.

  8. Rossot

    Dec 4, 2016 at 12:53 am

    Hmmm… Interesting how his woods are so heavy and stiff yet he uses S400 on his irons?

    • Sloop

      Dec 4, 2016 at 9:32 pm

      S400 are heavier than X100.

      • Rossot

        Dec 5, 2016 at 12:45 am

        By 2 grams! Like the wight of a penny…But never the less not as stiff as the X100!

        • Rj

          Dec 5, 2016 at 3:22 am

          How do you know they’re not hard stepped or tipped a little?

        • Scott

          Dec 5, 2016 at 2:53 pm

          Another possibility. With his pause at the top of his back swing, he may be loading the club differently and therefore does not need the extra stiff shaft.

    • Jim

      Dec 5, 2016 at 12:42 pm

      Very common….Wanting to ‘go after it more’ with woods. 3wd shaft a little heavier & stiffer tip than driver also very common result with our custom fittings & builds…

      • Rj

        Dec 6, 2016 at 3:13 am

        Especially with such a soft, forgiving 3W head

  9. G

    Dec 3, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    Psycho with the 3W. Yet another one

    • Rj

      Dec 6, 2016 at 3:14 am

      I don’t think he liked this 3W that much, so expect to see yet another different one again

    Quite the mix of OEM”s in that bag. No club deal?

    • Rimjob

      Oct 31, 2016 at 1:30 pm

      Obviously he’s got a Srixon deal.
      But he’s known to be quite a tinkerer when it comes to woods. And now we know why.

    • MT

      Dec 3, 2016 at 5:33 pm

      good to see a champ that really chose his clubs to make his game the best instead of selling himself to one of the brands.

      • Sloop

        Dec 4, 2016 at 9:37 pm

        This guy gets paid. He’s the #1 golfer in golf insane Japan. The telecasts here follow his rounds like Woods or Spieth or Fowler. They show in round replays of his highlights every tournament on Golf Channel. He’s got plenty of endorsements like Lexus too.

        I heard that after Lefty, Ryo Ishikawa is the top paid Callaway staffer, too. And what has he done in the last ten years?

      • Jack Nash

        Dec 5, 2016 at 8:46 am

        And not having a Company guy carry his bag.

  11. Carlos Danger

    Oct 31, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    Wow…those are “real man” shafts in Driver/3w

  12. Joe

    Oct 31, 2016 at 11:48 am

    I think it makes his swing interesting. I like watching him swing because it’s totally weird and unorthodox.

    BTW, why are you talking? Have you ever won a Tour event???

  13. Sloop

    Oct 30, 2016 at 4:16 pm

    Hottest golfer in the world right now.

    Win in Japan
    2nd last week
    Win this week.

    Always said if this guy learns how to putt he’d be one of the best in the world. Might be witnessing that.

  14. Rimjob

    You would know, Smiz…. you’re stupid

    Another example of a tour pro comfortable with some older equipment vs. the “latest and the greatest”.

    • Jack

      Oct 31, 2016 at 11:06 pm

      Well they were pro’s a few years ago and still pro’s now. Clubs don’t really matter that much no matter to what golfer, as long as they fit and are spec’ed correctly.

    Awesome Ping Anser 2 imitation.

    • daniel

      Oct 31, 2016 at 11:49 am

      With about 500 dollars in added softer material, and much better neck…………not an imitation, an upgrade.

      • Joe

        Oct 31, 2016 at 11:50 am

        No. Same material, more or less.

        And “much better neck”?? lmao

      • Bert

        Dec 5, 2016 at 7:59 am

        The Nickel Anser 2 has softer material. I’ve played it for 30+ years and am always looking for another at golf shops. The stainless version is no comparison.

        • Bert

          Feb 7, 2017 at 6:15 pm

          Yes, Been playing the Nickel Anser 2 for years, no comparison to the stainless version. Hard to find!

    • Joe

      Oct 31, 2016 at 11:49 am

      Haha. Pretty much. I just got one (Ping Anser 2 stainless) out of Goodwill last week for $2.99. No lie.

      • The dude

        Dec 4, 2016 at 4:14 pm

        They got sticks at goodwill??

        • Branson Reynolds

          Feb 6, 2017 at 8:57 am

          There’s always a stash of generics and old ass clubs at goodwill. Every once in a while you find a gem. I got a premium Cobra cart bag that was barely used for $10 one time.
