Per Callaway: “Kisner first put his driver in play at the start of 2019 (Sony Open). Like many staffers using Epic Flash, Kisner has been impressed by the ball speeds that he’s seeing from his driver and Flash Face Technology. It’s long, straight, and easy for Kevin to shape the driver, according to our Tour Reps. Xander Schauffele, Francesco Molinari, and the winner of the Genesis Open have already won on the PGA Tour using an Epic Flash Sub Zero Driver this year.”

    Fairway wood: Callaway Rogue Sub Zero (18 degrees)
    Shaft: Matrik Ozik Altus Hybrid…5-Wood with a Hybrid shaft…makes a lot of sense for more control…probably a 3-hybrid length.

    Congratulations to Keving for a nice win, no matter what he had in the bag he won.

    On another note BOOO to the Golf Cnannel and NBC for their coverage playing through the Ads. C’mon now, the were only 4 players on the course and you had to do the distraction little screen next to the ad? That is the stupidest of the stupid and whoever started that should be fired. 4 players and they had to do that, yet they had plenty of time to BS and have other distractions that who cared about, like Tigers full round, or other who cares stuff. BOOOO to them, typical GC BS..

      I agree 100% Recently i have been watching golf on my pvr just so i could fast forward the comnercials, but i guess the broadcasters have gotten wise and now are forcing everyone to watch them at the same time we are trying to watch the players. Worse still” during regular tournaments it is difficult to recognize the players and i have to hit the mute button during the commercials. Give me a break.

    I understand GolfWRX wants to be the “first” to post a winning WITB and it’s all speed-to-market in the world of news, etc. But don’t post WITB of players if they aren’t accurate. You’re blatantly posting old or inaccurate information to your audience which just looks extremely lazy. If you can’t be onsite to post legitimate WITB’s, then don’t post WITB anymore.

    Yes. Definitely noticed him with Callaway Mack Daddy 4 wedges on tv. Don’t think these witb’s are that useful if they’re not accurate. Has me questioning everything.

      Nope, Vokeys. He’s played SM7’s since they came out. Gettyimages and click rewind on your Dell Match Play recording.

      I don’t know how people ‘saw MD4s on TV?’ Kisner plays Vokey wedges and has for over a year.

    He plays a Rogue Sub Zero as his 3 wood and an Apex for his hybrid.

Shane Lowry’s winning WITB: 2019 Open Championship

Additional Shane Lowry WITB notes, via Johnny Wunder

2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry, compared to Tommy Fleetwood, is on the other side of the spectrum in regards to brand loyalty. He is Cleveland/Srixon in 12 clubs including the ball with the only two exceptions being the TaylorMade M4 3-wood and his Odyssey Putter. In this case, that makes sense, those clubs seem to be a challenge to swap, especially the 3-wood, and Cleveland/Srixon isn’t really known for putters on the PGA Tour.

I got some interesting intel on his driver Switch from the TaylorMade M2 into the Srixon Z585.

According to Rodney McDonald, VP of Tour Operations for Cleveland/Srixon, Shane is a dedicated staff member that is always willing to get all Cleveland/Srixon in the bag.

On Lowry switching into the Z585 Driver McDonald had this to say

“The switch was very easy. Even though he had won early in the year with another driver, he was not driving it good at all. He is very loyal to our team and our products that he came to us to find a new driver. He instantly loved the look of the Z 585 and once we started testing the numbers were exactly what he was looking for. His main comment about the driver is how his misses are minimal and he can hit all the shots he wants to.”

Equipment

Tommy Fleetwood’s bag is as awesome as he is (Tommy Fleetwood WITB)

Published

on

I’m obsessed with this guy. If there was a movie about his life, Aaron Taylor Johnson would play him…can we make that happen?

His bag has taken over for my past obsession with Charles Howell III, David Toms, and Rocco Mediate. I’m drawn to players that tweak a bit, it keeps it fun for me on Getty Images at 3 a.m.

Much like a Bernhard Langer, there is no telling what OEM sticks will land in Fleetwood’s bag. It’s awesome and a sign of the non-contract “eat what you kill” mentality shared by some of the biggest names out there (BK and Patrick Reed to name a couple).

Tommy has messed around quite a bit in the past two years with his bag and the fun part is, he’s not afraid to shake it up.

Here is a partial list of clubs that were previously in the bag since ’17 leading up to his current setup

  • TaylorMade M3 driver (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Titleist 917 D2 driver (@ 8.5 degrees) (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 3-wood (13 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 5-wood (Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 80TX shaft)
  • Titleist 917 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Titleist TS3 3-wood (12.75 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Nike VR Pro Blades
  • Callaway MD4 wedges
  • Ping G410 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Ping G410 7-wood (18 degrees) (Mitsubishi Diamana BF 80T shaft)
  • Odyssey 2-Ball (plumbers neck)

His grips are also a fun one, he goes Blue Golf Pride TVC in his woods, Iomic Sticky in his irons, and black Golf Pride TVC in his wedges. God, I love this guy!

Tommy Fleetwood WITB @The Open

Driver: TaylorMade M6 (9 degrees @7.5)
*has lofted up a bit, his driver has been down to 6.5 I’ve heard.
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (45 inches)

3-wood: TaylorMade M6 (15 degrees @14)
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (42.5 inches)
*was in a Ping G410 until the Scottish Open where he switched into the M6.

Irons: TaylorMade GAPR Lo (@18.75), Srixon Z785 (4-iron, 23 degrees), TaylorMade P7TW (5-9)
Shafts: GAPR: Project X 6.5 (39.5 inches), 4-iron: Project X 6.5 (38.5 inches), 5-9: Project X 6.5 (38 inches @ 5-iron, minus 1/2 inch from there) (26, 30, 34, 38, 42 degrees)

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 (47, 52, 55, 60 degrees)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Wedge notes: 48.10F (bent to 47) Tour chrome finish
52.08F raw
56.10 (bent 55) raw
60.08 raw

Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro #3
Grip: Super Stroke Mid Slim 2.0


Quick thought: I do see a specific trend when it comes to free agents, and it’s mildly telling. Keep in mind I understand that it’s not 100 percent, but the trends are there.

In woods and wedges specifically, TaylorMade seems to be a popular choice in the overall woods category for non-signed players and Vokey is hands down the wedge of choice. Makes sense in my opinion, I’m not a big “best company” guy, but I do understand the choice. Both companies make and have made extremely high-performing sticks for many years. Consistency in anything is a hard opponent to beat. When Nike bounced out of clubs Rory, BK, Casey, and a few others put Vokeys straight in, and a BK and Casey put TM woods in the bag. (Just an example for context)

Anyway, Tommy Fleetwood is four back going into the final round. I have a weird feeling if it blows he could be holding a trophy.
