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."


Posted Image



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.



Posted Image

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.



Posted Image



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.



Posted Image

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.



Posted Image

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.



Posted Image



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.



Posted Image

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

Just curious, anybody have anything on what flex FF plays in his driver, woods, irons?  Since he hits it more like mere mortals, does he go stiff, or he is still an X for control purpose?
