Our boots on the ground at Augusta National have confirmed that Tiger Woods is using a Nike VR_S Covert 3 Wood in Round 1 of the Masters, which he used to hit his first tee shot of the tournament.
According to Nike’s website, Woods is playing a 15-degree Covert (the non-Tour model), the same version as Woods’ VR_S Covert 19-degree 5 wood that he put in the bag at the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral.
Nike Golf’s twitter account tweeted a picture of the club this morning, saying, “The high draw demands Covert. The 3-wood that joins @TigerWoods bag.”
The non-Tour versions of Nike’s Covert fairway woods do not feature an adjustable hosel, which Woods has never used in competition. Click here to see a full photo gallery and spec list of Tiger’s equipment.

The photo indicates that Woods is using the same shaft, his trusty Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board 103X, which he’s been using in his Nike VR Pro Limited Edition 3 wood and previous fairway woods for several years.
