I love it. Wonder if that hybrid has a nasty gash from that fence?

He had to add weight back because he took so much surface off by grinding bounce off the sole. At least that's what Chad Coleman of Callaway said.

Heard the 5 iron has an orig KBS Tour shaft because the tour v didn't get enough spin in the longer irons. Still playing that?

That driving iron is a 4 iron. Also it promotes a lower ball flight than the apex pro 4 iron.

not quite exactly. 21º is 3 iron loft in Callaway's. he actually had 4 iron in the last set instead of that black 18º Apex Hybrid.
should be related to the course specific, i guess?

what's really interesting is his love—except his true love for lead tapes—for the 1st gen X Hot Deep wood. it's been there for like 3 years on now.

That's the bag of the Waste Management winner right there.

Sir Phil is still loving dem Fubuki's. When's the last time he didn't have one in the bag?? The amount of sole removed from the 64 isn't subtle...some industrial grade angle grinding went on there.

GO PHIL!!!

That has to be at least 10 swingweight pts worth of tape on the 64.  That's a lot of grinding!
