Fred FunkOne of six players older than 50 to win a PGA Tour event, Funk is not exactly an equipment geek. "I've never been a numbers guy," he says. "I'm a feel guy. If the ball looks like it's flying well, and the club feels good, then I'm good to go."
I spin the ball, so I put the heavier weights forward to bring the ball flight and spin down. I thought the weights were a gimmick at first, but it's pretty cool how they work.
I've had this TaylorMade 200 Steel 3-wood for a while. It works well, so why change it? It's 13 degrees, so I put just a touch of lead tape on the bottom to get a higher ball flight.
This 16-degree Rescue is always in the bag. I like the versatility of it more than a 4- or 5-wood, and I sometimes use it to chip around the greens.
I couldn't be happier with my new r7 TP irons, but my old CGB 3-iron is my baby. It's loaded with lead tape in the cavity to help the ball get in the air. It's also the club I used on the second shot to No. 16 at the 2005 Players that helped me win.
I have a 56-degree bent to 55 degrees. I also carry a 60. I had a grind done on the 60 to take a little off the heel. That way, when I lay it open, it sits really nice and won't grab the turf.
I change putters a lot but have always used a mallet since college. I started putting well with this Odyssey White Hot XG 7 a few weeks ago, and it'll stay in the bag until it starts misbehaving.
I've spent a lot of time testing both the TaylorMade Black and Red balls. I chose the Red because it's stable in the wind, and the feel around the greens is fantastic
