2019 major winners’ WITBs

Published

on

With the conclusion of the Tour Championship two weeks ago, and the kickoff of the 2019-2020 season at next week’s Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, we’re presently sitting in the one week in the PGA Tour calendar in which we can officially look back at the golf season that was—from a WITB standpoint, at least.

With no PGA Tour WITB to report on this week, then, we’re going to take a look at the tools the four major championship winners used to carve their names on golf’s register of the immortals.

Adam Scott’s winning WITB: 2020 Genesis Invitational

Published

on

Driver: Titleist TS4 (10.5 degrees, A1 SureFit setting, 2-gram weight)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XTS 80 X

  • Scott put the Kuro Kage in play this week. Per Titleist’s J.J. VanWezenbeeck, “Adam Scott switched to the TS4 driver at the ZoZo Championship due to head size, shape, and improved launch to spin ratios. This week, after discussions with Adam, he went to a shaft he had previously played for increased stability. He felt the shaft went a little far and he lost head feel. We went on course with lead tape to get the feels to match up then weighted the head to preferred swing weight after testing.”

3-wood: Titleist TS2 (16.5 degrees, A1 SureFit setting)
Shaft: Fujikura Rombax P95 X

Irons: Titleist 716 T-MB (3-iron), Titleist 680 (4-9 irons)

Putter: Scotty Cameron Xperimental Prototype Rev X11 (long)

Ball: Titleist Pro V1

Scott marks his ball with dots in the pattern of the Southern Cross, which is featured on the Australian flag.
