What's in his bag?

-Ping G400 Driver
-Taylormade M2 3-Metal
-Ping iBlade irons 3-PW
-Titlelist Vokey wedges
-Scotty Cameron putter

Anyone have any more details? Mainly just curious what driver shaft he plays....driver stats would be cool to see too. Heard somewhere he's at like a 7* launch and 3000rpm?
Sean Foley said this on...maybe the Brian Bateman show on Sirius XM...(I could be wrong about the show, but I️ know for a fact this is where it came from as I’ve heard it twice in my car)- Foley also tracked his drives for the entire summer and it was 337 I️ think with 68% FIR...pretty impressive stuff with that much power

M1, ad di7x
rbz 3w, ad dj8x
Titleist TMB 2 iron, ti X100    
mp68 4-pw, ti x100
Vokey 52* (x100), 56* (X100) ,60* (s400)
Scotty Mid Slant

I hope the kid does well......and I hate to pee in the koolaide......but the body is not built to swing 130 mph and hit a golf ball 340+. Unfortunately this will not last long.

That is just crazy talk...in 10-15 years we will have kids that have been training for speed “superspeed golf” since they were 5 years old. Wouldn’t surprise me is there are at least 5 guys on the pga tour with 130 mph swing speed by then.  Also more than likely during this time we will have advances in deceleration training as well that will
help with staying injury free longer.

Based on how far he hits it, this kid is pretty much guaranteed to win at least ten majors.

Missed the cut badly this weekend.  His game needs lots of work before he's successful on Tour but I really hope he makes it.  He's a great kid; very humble and tries to downplay all the hype.  He also gets down on himself quite easily, another thing he needs to get over.  If he gets his short game dialed in the way the DJ has, and refines his play around the greens, that distance will turn into a huge advantage for him....if.

Use should probably use trackman to practice with his wedges.

I was a personal trainer and athletic performance coach for 8 years.  You can train for "superspeed" golf all you want.  The body can only take so much (especially as you age).  Now, he definitely could learn to gear down a bit for 90% of his swings and then only unleash that 130mph when he really needs it 3-4 times per round.  That seems to be what Jason Day is trying to do now.  Anyway, he's young and a work in progress.  Will be fun to watch and I hope he does well.

When Cameron Champ eventually makes it to the big show, I think people will be spending a lot more time talking about his golf swing.  I've never seen anyone hit it this long seemingly without swinging that hard at it.  It looks like he's going at it 75% at best.  It's totally smooth and in control, but talk about a freakish release.  I took a V1 video of his driver swing at the Walker Cup practice tee and I watch it over and over because it's so hard to believe that he can make this pass look so casual while hitting these 300 yard bullets.

Same could be say for thousands of recreational golfers that never swung over 95. In any other sport people say that athletes wear out their bodies because of how much they do X.  I never heard anyone say the athlete hurt his  knees because nobody should jump over 40 inches high.  So why are golfers different?

Anyone who hits as many balls as these guys need to hit to get onto the pga tour will have problems at some point.  Obviously higher swing speed creates more torque on the body than slower swing speed. But as times goes by and kids are training specifically for speed the body will produce different muscle fibers to support that. Time will tell but athletes are running faster, jumping higher and throwing faster every single generation.

I would be interested in seeing the video. I'm a big fan of Champ and there (unfortunately) isn't a lot of high-quality video floating around of his driver swing.

He's in the first Web.com tournament of the year in the Bahamas and has posted 69-73 to start the year. He's currently six back at -2 and it looks like he's about to pick up his first check as a pro.
