    Reminds me of the x20 Tours, which were very straight or the old forged from 04. What year did these debut?

    Highly deflationary for the OEMs. Proof we don’t need whatever’s the newest in order to be good.

    Allthough, he left the driver out and carried a 2 iron when he won today. Dont know the loft of that 2 iron.

    @Nathan, he seldom have the 3iron in the bag, d,3w,5w, 4,5,6,7,8,9, 4 wedges and a putter makes 14 clubs.

      Aug 20, 2017 at 8:56 pm

      I wonder what the distance difference is between the 5w and the 4i.

    • Robert Peterson

      Aug 20, 2017 at 10:16 pm

      Not quite. Usually has 3 iron, usually doesn’t have 4 wedges (added 50*)

    • Stan67

      Aug 21, 2017 at 3:52 pm

      Nope. Stenson usually carries: D, 3W(!), 5W, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, PW, 52, 58, P.

      • R.Q.

        Aug 21, 2017 at 5:36 pm

        Okay, but I still wonder what distance difference there is between his 5W and 3i.
        It could be 20+ yards!

    Lofts on the irons are interesting.

    Is there a photo showing the 3 iron loft? Is it 18* ??

    Look at that huge blob of steel on the toe of those ugly Cally Legacy irons. Couldn’t they have put a plug of high density tungsten into the toe and eliminated all that steel overhang?
    BTW, I love that WITB lime green umbrella!

      It’s part of the design aesthetic. The heel has the same. (agree the clubs are ugly though)

      • Chris

        These are the JDM forged s20 steel irons that people have been drooling over for a long time, and the general consensus is they are superb looking and playing. There are several threads in the forum section about the Legacy Black irons. In fact, you two are the first people I have heard that think these are ugly.

        • Ian

          Aug 21, 2017 at 8:31 am

          Agreed
          Good looking irons.

        • Sid

          Ping and TM use tungsten inserts for toe weighting and this makes their clubs look more sleek and the CG is closer to the face too. The Legacy looks like it’s got a swollen toe hanging out there. UgLY!

            Almost EVERY WITB that we’ve ever seen proves that professional golfers don’t care how the clubs look in the bag, but how it performs for their game. If they care about looks, it’s at address.

            It’s fine if your bag is all about visual appeal, as long as you can admit it, and accept that your game may suffer for the sake of visual aesthetic.

              IOW you are what toys you own and not what you can do. That’s the gearhead song.

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.”
