    Yeah, maybe Pat’s not a role model in his on-course demeanor – but he sure is with his “never quit” attitude. The fact that he gets this win after barely playing any tournament golf all year after shoulder surgery is amazing and admirable. So what if he drops a few F-bombs, it’s a stressful game and not everyone handles it as well as others. And you gotta love the Bill Murray bag and apparrel from the Chive – what a great win for them.

    So, Psycho wins another one. And he’s got a psychotic bag of clubs. You wonder what all those manufacturers must be thinking, who’s he sponsored by? I don’t think he should be wearing Callaway clothes lol

    Nice win, but that temper is absolutely dangerous!!! Wow, we are following the last group, me and my son, and he’s dropping F bombs… What do you say???

      Happy Gilmore-Perez, haha…

      Really? Then don’t follow the guy with your son if I don’t like his language. Maybe Pat doesn’t care about being a role model and just wants to golf.

        I don’t think that father and son were following Pat because he’s a role model. And why would you even assume that? Really to you!!! All sports guys are the last people you should figure are role models… Looks like the man was giving his 2 cents worth and you go ape $hit on him…

        4Right is spot on… Maybe Pat needs a role model, looks like a 4 yr old throwing a tantrum…

    Love the Chive! The fact that Bill Murray personally picked this guy as the only player they’d sponsor this year is all I need to hear to root for the guy. Way to go Pat!!!

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.”
