In '98 I think he was still using a Big Bertha (non titanium) driver and I know for sure he was using the tiny head Callaway S2h2 3 wood. There's a Shell's Wonderful World of Golf match with him against John Daly from '98, that shows him using these

The famous 3 wood borrowed from Watson was a Ram Laser FX Bore Thru model.
Lynx offered a pretty close copy in their Boom Boom line.
All that said, I don't know what he was using in 1998.
The driver was the Lynx as were the Parallax irons. Wedges were Cleveland 588 and he had the holes drilled in the back. Putter was an old Ping Anser and then the Ram FX Bore Thru 3 wood.
I still have one of those and got it because of being a huge Freddie fan. In its day, it was a bomber of the tee but you had to hit it flush off the deck given the deep face. I’ll pull it out every now and then and amazed at the way clubs have changed.
I remember seeing him at the original Wendy’s Three Tour Challenge with these clubs.
He definitely played Cleveland wedges as you described but not a ping putter in 98 masters. It was a Kevin burns 9303 putter (you can see it on the official 1998 masters video numerous times, especially when he pulls his putt on the 71st hole). Im positive he had already put the forged beta titanium driver in play at that point as well.
