    I can relate to the LPGA WTIB, but not this one. Wasn’t it Mickelson who said he needed better sticks?

    Can you say Mizuno MP-9s?! I believe the Phase 1 happened back in 1990… lol

    oh, I could’a swore his driver was 44.874 and 1/3. 3 wood, 42.23 and 1/8. 5 wood 40.3 and 1/4. Hahahaha!! you guys kill me with this nonsense.

    I find it interesting that Tiger had a Ping grip on his putter…did anyone else notice this?

    • Tony

      This is the grip he’s been using since his amateur days. Despite all of the different grips that have come out over the last decades, he likes this one the best. And he has always blacked out the PING logo with a sharpie to keep it low key for his sponsors.

    The best players use Taylormade. It’s interesting but no one wins with Callaway on tour. What does that tell you?

      2017/2018 winners using Callaway: Aaron Wise, Patrick Reed, Brice Garnett, Phil Mickelson.

    Shouldn’t it be illegal for other golf companies to just copy clubs?

      Like everything titleist and Cameron put out?

    I wonder who really makes those TW proto-type irons? Could it be Miura?

      A very interesting article on the topics. Please keep posting more on this. For more info/

    I like how he abuses his putter. The thing has won him a ton and earlier this year I saw him jamming it in the holes on the practice green scooping golf balls out. I’m worried about scratching my $179 putter. He doesn’t GAF. It was great seeing it.

    Probably a stupid question, but why do people care what shafts Tiger Woods uses? Do they expect the same results if they were to use the same product?

    • MacAttack67

      Sep 24, 2018 at 2:41 pm

      He uses Dynamic Gold in his irons. The members here love to trash Dynamic Gold for hundreds of reasons yet it is still the #1 shaft on Tour by a mile and is played by the best players. Maybe Phil should switch back?

    • Ricky J Tomes

      Sep 24, 2018 at 4:10 pm

      The funny thing is people do expect the same results from using the same equipment he uses. Along, with the rest of the buying industry. That very thing is what drives the industry. Look how they market clubs and shafts and balls. Funny I Know.

    • Benny

      Sep 29, 2018 at 11:01 am

      Would you also like to know what car he drives? Or maybe what he eats for lunch? Follow them on Twitter? Color of his underwear… wait what?

    Many people are questioning Tiger’s wood shafts. We’ve confirmed directly through Mitsubishi and Darrell that he’s playing Mitsubishi’s “Diamana D+ White” 70 gram in his driver and 80 gram in his fairway woods.

    • Jon

      Sep 25, 2018 at 7:08 am

      Andrew – can you use the power of Golfwrx and the Golfnerdery gods to get the details of the loft/lie of his irons – in fact I think this would be a welcome addition to all WITB. Thanks.

    • Tim

      Sep 25, 2018 at 4:19 pm

      He had Tensei orange or white prior, do we know why he switched?

  12. Andy

    Sep 24, 2018 at 6:26 am

    What loft is his PW? What’s the gap between it and his 56?

    • JuannyBravo

      Sep 24, 2018 at 10:25 am

      lol. Tiger doesn’t need a gap wedge

    • Karl

      Sep 24, 2018 at 11:56 am

      I believe it’s 50 degrees for his PW. Old school lifts.

    • Jon

      Sep 25, 2018 at 7:07 am

      Great question. Also, 3-PW means nothing these days, it would be nice if they could list the loft/lie so we could know in much the same way as woods and hybrids are listed.

      And then of course change them to his lofts then we will all play like him 🙂

    Well, this might be one of those clubs that does not fit for everyone, I might be lucky enough to be in the general targeted audience. Although it may not be the greatest club, but it’s not too bad either

  14. D Mack

    Sep 23, 2018 at 8:07 pm

    It’s the D+ LTD, I have one n my diver (S) flex. Smooth feeling shaft that I know. Long too.

  15. Fred

    Sep 23, 2018 at 7:53 pm

    It’s the df series not the d+

  16. Travis

    HE’S BAAAACK!!!

  17. Ryan Michael

    Sep 23, 2018 at 7:20 pm

    Wrong shafts he uses the newer line not the old school ones that are 73 and 83 grams.

    Was the Cameron sent in for refinishing work? How current is that photo?

    What´s about the length of the wood shafts? He has far less clubhead speed than at the beginning of the season.

    • Kevin

      Sep 24, 2018 at 11:39 am

      I’m curious about shaft length too, but I don’t think that is why his clubhead speed is down a little. this week he FINALLY brought is ‘range swing’ to the course. Just watch video of his smooth, controlled swing while warming up then he gets to the 1st tee and comes out of his shoes and sprays it all over the place! You would think he’d have figured that out a long time ago but he did this week. Hopefully he keeps it going at the Ryder Cup.

    Driver is Diamana D+ LTD 70 TX
    3 wood and 5 wood are Diamana D+ LTD 80 TX

    • Jim

      Sep 23, 2018 at 6:43 pm

      Yea they kinda really really messed up that one.

  21. Marius Bjone

    Sep 23, 2018 at 3:28 am

    Are you sure he’s not playing the Diamana DF-series?

      Forsure the Diamana LTD D+ graphics

      Typically he has been 44.75″ driver
      roughly 42.5 and 41.5 in the fairways

      • Matt

        Sep 24, 2018 at 5:41 pm

        Correction: It was 44.875″ for the driver… not 44.75… my bad

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best ball for players with slower swing speeds?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ghoul31 who created a thread dedicated to finding the ideal golf ball for players with slower swing speeds. Our members have their say on what is the ball most suited to slower swing speeds, with a variety of models receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Hogan9: “My SS is 80 to 85. I play the Titleist AVX. Many people on these forums tell it’s wrong for me. I’ve tried several brands and types over the last year ( Pro-V-1 and 1X, Cally Supersoft and Chrome Soft, TM TP5X, Wilson Duo Soft and the Snell MTB. The AVX gives me the best overall performance for my game. I’ve had to slightly adjust to how it reacts on chips and pitches, but the extra distance off the tee is well worth it. “
  • North Butte: “Maybe 90mph driver swing on a good day. Driver 205-ish hit 6-iron from 150. Pro V1x but I have played AVX, B330, TP5 with pretty much similar results to my favorite V1x. Also played the Chrome Soft for a while but it seemed to fly a little low and sometimes have trouble holding greens (or maybe I just didn’t give it a long enough chance to know for sure).”
  • Hat Trick: “Pro V1X – Spin and higher launch keeps it in the air longer, but at the same time that spin holds the greens – SS 96-98 mph.”
  • Kmac: “My SS is right around 95-100, and I find the QST to the perfect for my game. I will also play the AVX or Chrome Soft Truvis. But for the money, nothing beats the QST.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Single length irons stunting development?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rbark11 who has sparked an interesting debate over single length irons in our forums. Rbark11 has been playing single length irons for the past seven months, and he is concerned that he may have issues changing back to regular length irons. Our members give their take on the matter, as well as discussing single length irons in general.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mcs4: “No, it will not. Both my father and I are currently playing Cobra One Length irons after decades of playing variable length irons. It took both of us maybe a few rounds to feel comfortable with the switch. This weekend I played a round with my old irons, and it was different but not a big deal. My opinion is that there are pros and cons with each approach, but I don’t think picking one will make any particular negative impact on your ability to later switch to the other.”
  • Quadra: “I’ve played both. Right now I am back to VL clubs ( Wishon 560 irons). Find VL gives me more shot-making options. With uneven lies, especially with the ball above or below foot level, the shot seems easier with a more upright or flatter lie, rather than trying to manipulate a shot from clubs with only a single length/lie. VL = more shot possibilities.”
  • Aucaveman: “I played Cobra ftbo for a year. Shot my best scores ever. Our club switched to Mizuno exclusively, so I had my first real fitting. I switched to the 919 forged and had to sell the Cobras to fund the mizunos. Really wished I hadn’t. I really liked the Cobras. The shafts in the Mizuno’s are better suited for me but had I put the same shafts in the Cobras; I’d prob been better off. At some point, I’ll prob do it and go back to one lengths. I was perusing eBay yesterday actually.”
  • Brandons68: “I think that the consistency you gain from SL irons is pretty great. I have not played them personally, but have talked to several people that have, and they really like the feel of the irons and the fact that they swing every iron the same because they are all the same length.”
