U.S Open Tour Truck Report: Tuesday



Another busy day in the trucks (see yesterday’s report here) and the recurring theme is lots of fresh wedges, 7-woods, and hybrids to combat the nasty rough at Winged Foot.

Word on the street is the golf course is so tough that no amount of tinkering can really make a difference. It’s the U.S. Open at Winged Foot—you either showed up with it or it’s gonna be a long week. Not the time nor place to try and find it.

Callaway tour truck

  • Adam Hadwin put the new Prototype Apex MB21 in the bag (5-9) with Project X Rifle 7.0 shafts
  • Kevin Kisner switched into the Aldila Rogue Black 130 MSI 60 TX in his driver
  • Tom Lewis moved into the Mitsubishi Chemical D-Limited 60 TX in his driver
  • Erik van Rooyen put a Mavrik Sub Zero (tour only) 7 wood in play with an MCA Diamama DF 80 TX

Titleist tour truck

  • A general note: As expected, lots of hybrid and fairway wood testing for numerous players
  • Tyler Duncan put a TS2 21-degree hybrid in play to combat the rough
  • Ian Poulter put a TSi2 7-wood in the bag with the new Aldila Tour Green 85 TX shaft
  • Titleist will have at least 20 of the new TSi drivers in play

Ping tour truck

  • Matthias Schwab added a G410 7-wood to his arsenal with an Aldila Tour Blue ATX 85 TX shaft
  • Taylor Pendrith also put the G410 7-wood in play with a Project X Smoke Green 90 6.5 shat
  • Corey Conners had a fresh Glide Forged 60-degree wedge with a Project X 6.0 shaft
  • Joaquin Niemann settled on the G410 7-wood over a 3-iron for that 240 gap mentioned yesterday.

TaylorMade tour truck

  • Dustin Johnson is testing the new SIM DHY  (19 degrees) with a Project X HZURDUS Smoke Black Hybrid 100 6.5 shaft, hes getting a about 275 in the air with some spin and a mid flight which is great off the tee at Winged Foot.

    That DHY is an absolute cannon. I hit it a couple weeks ago and it was butter smooth, very high launching and DEEP. Only drawback I found was it was literally too straight. Hard to work in either direction.

    Has JT moved to the TSi3 with a different shaft? Seen a picture on Instagram, its clear he is using a TSi driver but cant make out the shaft, it looks blue in colour and different to the ZF….
