Snedeker’s mixed bag: Bridgestone and others

Published

on

Brandt Snedeker is a throwback in many ways. He plays fast, gives honest answers and unlike the majority of the game’s top players, Snedeker plays equipment from a variety of different manufacturers.

The majority of Snedeker’s equipment comes from Bridgestone — Snedeker carries a Bridgestone staff bag filled with the company’s J40 cavity back irons (4-PW) and J40 Black Oxide Wedges (52-and-56 degree models). He also uses the Bridgestone ball that the company recommends for golfers with the highest swing speed (105 + m.p.h.), the 2012 Tour B330.

“The new dual dimples on the cover of the B330 ball allows it to perform great in the wind,” Snedeker said.  “Even in the blustery conditions at East Lake, I had confidence in firing at pins coming down the stretch, because the ball holds its line so well.”

The rest of Snedeker’s equipment is a mixed bag — his driver, three wood and hybrid are from three different manufacturers and have shafts from three different shaft companies.

Driver: TaylorMade Burner SuperFast with a Fujikura Motore VC 7.2 X shaft.

Three wood: Tour Edge Exotics CB4 (13 degree) with a Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board 73X shaft.

Hybrid: Ping Anser (20 degree) with a UST Mamiya VTS 100X hybrid shaft (Black — low torque).

Snedeker also plays three different types of shafts in his irons and wedges. In his 4 iron through pitching wedge, he uses Aerotech Steelfiber i95 constant weight taper tip shafts — 95-gram shafts that are engineered with a graphite core that is surrounded by an outer layer of steel fiber.

His 52-and-56 degree wedges have traditional steel irons shafts, True Temper X100s. His lob wedge, which is a Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 60-degree wedge, has a True Temper DG Spinner shaft.

Snedeker rounds out his bag with his trusty Odyssey White Hot XG Rossie, giving him a total of six different club manufactures in his bag [Bridgestone, TaylorMade, Tour Edge, PING, Titleist (Vokey) and Callaway (Odyssey)].

Club Junkie WITB league night, week 10: The hypothetical bag!

Published

on

Week 9 was an absolute disaster as BK shot the worst league score in years. Two balls out of bounds off the tee and one that hit a tree and was never found, so three penalty strokes right there. Then it was just battling a slice that crept into the swing for the first time in years! Week 10 is the halfway point and the league does a scramble format where everyone throws in some money and the top teams win it. Unfortunately, BK won’t be there as he will be out in California for a work-related trip, but these are the clubs he would be playing.

Driver: PXG Black Ops (9 degrees, neutral setting)
Shaft: Graphite Design Tour AD XC-6x

3-wood: Titleist TSR2 (15 degrees, D1 setting)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus TR Red 7x

Hybrid: TaylorMade Qi10 Rescue (19 degrees)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus TR Blue HB 7s

4-6 iron: Callaway Apex Pro
Shaft: Aerotech Steelfiber i110cw Stiff

7-9 iron: Callaway Apex CB
Shaft: Aerotech Steelfiber i110cw Stiff

10-11 iron: Callaway Apex MB
Shaft: Aerotech Steelfiber i110cw Stiff

Wedge: Mizuno T24 (56-12S)
Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold TI S400

Wedge: Cleveland RTX Full-Face (58-9, Bent 2* weak)
Shaft: Nippon Pro Modus 125 Wedge

Putter: Odyssey Ai One 7s
Shaft: Stroke Lab SL90 Steel

Ball: Titleist ProV1 Enhanced Alignment

Miura launches new forged wedge series

Published

on

Miura Golf has this week announced the release of their new forged wedge series.

Five years in the making, the new Y and C grind soles were designed to interact crisply with the turf to enhance contact and encourage consistency. The lie, loft and face progression aims to create a flawless flow from the hosel through the clubhead. The clean, classic forged wedge look was developed with design to promote short game confidence for pros and amateurs alike.

“The Forged Wedge Series enhances a golfer’s three most important senses: What a golfer sees, feels, and hears brings clarity to each shot—for the part of the game where strokes are saved, and matches are won. Our newest wedge heads were carefully engineered to put the mass in the right places so golfers can get the optimum contact and control, allowing for easier turf travel through impact and more overall consistent ball flight.” – Bill Holowaty, COO, Miura Golf

The Y Grind

Beneficial for golfers who have a neutral to steep angle of attack and tend to remove some turf through impact when playing a variety of shots around the green. This grind will offer more control and more spin for that type of player and the leading edge, high bounce and cambering of the Y Grind aims to make it equally as easy to get out of bunkers, soft conditions and long rough.

The C Grind

Optimal for players who have a neutral to shallow attack angle in order to sweep the ball and pick it off the turf around the green. The additional heel and toe relief on this wedge allows for more confident open face shots and provides versatility to handle intricate shots and tight lies around the green on any type of turf condition.

Every Y and C grind wedge is stamped with the forged “Kanji” symbol, a Japanese character which translates to “striving” or “noble effort.”

The Y Grind wedge is available in 46, 48, 50, 52, 54 and 56-degree lofts. The C Grind wedge is available in 54, 56, 58 and 60-degree lofts.
