Kind of surprising that he uses shafts so stiff considering that he comes to a complete pause at the top of his backswing. Creates a ton of speed from there though.

Guy has one of the most aggressive transitions on tour, it borders violent lol I can see the need for the rebar.

I think Greg had pics from the last tournament where he had 2 or 3 cameron putters beside his bag. I commented on it at the time as they all had head covers on and I was keen to see what they were - looks like this is one of them maybe.

crazy thing with his bag is that he still has lead tape all over his stuff.

As a guy who has built clubs for all kinds of players including PGA Tour players, i cat believe that they cant get him what he likes without the tape, especially considerings how specific his wedge specs are

You would know better than I would but could be placebo effect.  He just feels more comfortable with it on there.

I'll echo other comments, one would think that with that pause, there isn't much "offending" the shaft and causing bend.  Still have no idea if shaft stiffness depends on "offending" the shaft or just pure shaft speed.

It's very apparent that he transformed his physique into what he thinks will suit the grind and style of the PGA Tour. I think that's contributed a lot to his success compare to his compatriots,  namely, Ryo Ishikawa.
