Looks pretty clear in a photo from this week that he had a Standard head Epic driver in play. I did not see the very much of the telecast. Could someone confirm this.

Looks like sometime right before the Players Championship.

At Zurich, he was still wearing a cap sporting the Titleist logo, but at the Players he wore just a visor without the logo

Heard them say his “ visor contract “ was up. Which was why he had a visor with a Goat on it he said he bought from the TPC sawgrass pro shop with his 30% pro discount.  Lol.    So must mean his club contract too.

Said he paid $22 for the visor with the goat and he is hoping to get Jack to sign it this weekend. Na used to rub me the wrong way and while he is still on the slowish side, he does seem to have some personality which is nice to see.

I like Na. He's true to himself. Love when he overruled his caddy and went with a shot that could have put him in real trouble.

Still love when he and his caddy jogged the final round of a tournament when he was first out of the gate during the height of the "Hurry Up, Kevin" movement.

I tuned in to GC Thursday's telecast, and Chamblee said on-air that he was walking the line (shout out to JP), and Na's caddy said this one gained him 20 yards over his previous driver... BC seemed skeptical, but the caddy insisted.

Just looked at driving distance PGATour.com stats for Na, and he had his longest avg. driving distance this year very recently... not sure when the switch took place or when the stats get updated exactly, obviously other factors potentially, but maybe his caddy is only slightly stretching the truth...

I was half asleep but I think Brandel Chamblee said he thinks Kevin has the best short game on tour! Not sure what the stars say but it's pretty big props considering how hated Na seems to be generally.

So,

The Callaway Epic Driver with a Tour AD-GP 6TX pictured belonged to me (it was my backup).  Kevin took my backup Epic Driver to the Player’s Championship this year. The goal was to have him take it to Titleist and have them build a driver to match specs, but he hit it so well that he decided to game it.

That killed his Titleist Contract. He resigned a Ball/Glove/Shoe deal, but was no longer obligated to wear Titleist headwear or use a Titleist bag.

Stay tuned, because I have a feeling that an announcement is forthcoming!!

So he had a ball/shoe/glove deal, but lost it cause he used a different driver? Sounds harsh.

No, he had a full contract, but since he broke it, he signed a ball/shoe/glove deal only instead. No clubs.

I figured there was a good joke in here somewhere about his contract ending sometime between his address and his downswing...
