    Brooks is a stud. He bombs it. Yes they find speed slots and the fairways run at a 10 stmp so yes they get big roll out. But just like home runs make baseball fun to watch (for most) bombs off the tee bring in spectators for golf. Btw for the schmuck above complaining about the WITB info being “wrong” you are an idiot. Not everyone is perfect. Plus you don’t pay to read and these articles. Its free for you so you have zero right to whine. Pros try different clubs every week. Not to mention WRX cannot get new updated pics at every friggen event. You know how hard that would be? To make every event and then bug every player every week for new updated pics not to mention breakdowns on their bags? Use your noggin next time man.

    Greg: regarding ur comnent regarding why anyone would play mbs except for hubris….
    We should ask the top 3 golfers in the world, who all play mbs
    Johnson, matsuyama, and rory.
    Just cause u dont get it doesnt mean no one should. U say hubris, i say ignorance

    His ball is very interesting… TITLEIST PRO V1X. Interesting to all the Titleist bashers out there because he plays it and gets paid NOTHING. He is not under contract with Titleist at all. He plays it because its the best ball for his game and it just helped him win the U.S. OPEN. Also interesting, the runner-up (Harmon) plays TITLEIST PROV1 and is also not under contract. HHMMMMMMM.

    Hallo ihr Lieben, könnt ihr mir sagen ob ein Vakuumbeutel für Reisen wirklich sinn macht

    Nebensächlich interessiert mich auch wie viel und was ich rein in einen Vakuumbeutel hinpacken kann. Ich habe darüber eine Seite gefunden, aus der man aber nicht schlau wird.

    Danke für die Hilfe

      Adam, there’s shelf loads of these clubs at my local golf shop. So what the heck u blabbering about?

    I’m starting to notice the inconsistencies (or errors) in these WITB articles. The main picture and the description of his clubs are not consistent. For example, the main picture shows a 56 degree wedge, but the description of his clubs doesn’t indicate a 56 degree wedge. Also, the main picture shows 3 wood headcovers, but the description only indicates 2 woods headcovers.

    I’m losing confidence in these WITB articles. Not that it matters to me because that is not how I buy clubs, but if you are going to publish something, I’d say make sure it is accurate.

      JGolf,

      We photograph the bags of PGA Tour players during practice rounds, when they’re often carrying 15-16 clubs. We then verify what exactly was in their bag for the final round. It’s at that time that we publish/update each Winning WITB, and this was the case with Brooks.

      What you are seeing an accurate WITB listing, as well as a real photo of the clubs Brooks was carrying this week at Erin Hills in the practice round. Sometimes the photos and list of clubs don’t match up perfectly, and I hope you now better understand why.

        Seems as though he actually had a 16.5 degree 3 wood and a 52, 56, 60 wedges. Can GolfWRX confirm?

    I’m a big fan of Mizuno irons, hitting the JPX 900 Forged. Glad to see the Tour Forged making a mark out there.

    Note to PXG:
    The sexiest, sweetest & softest feeling, most accurate, the sweet spot the size of Barney the purple dinosaur’s belly irons are Mizunos. Nothing feels like a Mizuno. And You can’t beat that, Parsons.

      Surely PXG must be better they cost 3 times as much as a set of JPX900’s!

    Love the mixed bag that he has stuck with. Will have more people with money waving in his face all over. Those older wedges, the old FW…and the driving iron…yeah, Nike made some decent gear in the end. When you watch JT hit a short bulleye putter what 280+…it is the indian and it gets to be what they are comfortable with. But the age of those wedges…Titleist can’t like that with their study on wedge age.

      What about Fleetwood? He nearly won with all them Nike equipment!

        Hit a nerve? The golf stores have witnessed this lemming behavior and they are preparing now for the rush of gearheads buying those clubs, particularly the M-drivers.

    Absolutely LOVE this bag…If I had the $ I’d game the exact set up.

    Furthermore this kid is ridiculously long…357Yd drive on 18 with a 3 WOOD..

    Let me repeat… A 3 WOOD.

      I hate the fact that the TV commentators only talk about the yardage and not the conditions. Brooks Koepke is long but only Jamie Sadlowski is that long. The 18th was playing slightly down hill, down wind and the ball got a 70 yard run from landing on a down slope. No one talks about the conditions just the yardages. Makes it appear that these guys are all long drive champions. Tommy Fleetwood is not a huge hitter but he carried one 328 down the stretch. Context people! Got to look at the context!

      • H

        Jun 19, 2017 at 2:04 pm

        How we supposed to sell anything with context?

        • Bill

          M2s with built-in 300+ yards the bestest of them all

    Watching over the weekend looks like he has the 2017 M1 3 Wood in play and dropped the Nike Vapor Fly. Had it in at Masters too.

    The putter appears to have zero loft, I have a Scotty Newport 2 that wound up with negative loft after a round trip on a major airline. Once I adjusted it back to 4 degrees I was deadly accurate again. Had to win back some of my money lost with a bent putter.

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.”
