Russell Knox switches to Srixon Z565 driver in Austin

Published

on

Two-time PGA Tour champion Russell Knox has switched to a Srixon Z565 driver (10.5 degrees) this week at the 2017 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

At No. 21 in the Official World Golf Rankings, Knox is the highest-ranked golfer in the world using Srixon’s new driver, which debuted late last year and offers a larger club head and higher trajectory than Srixon’s Z765 driver.

Unlike the retail version of the Z565, Knox’s driver has a black face. According to a Srixon representative, all of the other features of the driver are the same.

Knox has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the OWGR since 2014. He started the year ranked 245th in the world using a Cleveland Classic XL Custom. He used that model until late last year, when he switched to TaylorMade’s M2.

Knox’s Z565 driver is adjusted to be 2 degrees open, which is the maximum open setting on the driver. His shaft is Aldila’s NV 2KXV Blue 60TX.

    Great driver. I have the 565 with hzrdus black and really like it. I have a 9.5 set at 10.5 and don’t love how it closes the face, but it performs! Thinking about picking up a 765 this winter in a 10.5 when prices really come down. Have a couple of tips so I can try a few shafts. Already looking forward to 2018 season and hitting high bombs!

    There is a slow but steady wave of switchers to Srixon.
    Ok, a tour players club from any manufacturer will be effectively Custom made but the stuff on the shop floor from Srixon is super high quality.
    I love the plain look of the drivers , which just won’t age. In 2 yrs time the used club bin will be full of carbon crown and turbulator festooned fashion clubs.
    If you have a decent swing you will get a lot out of a Srixon 65 or prev 45 series , no one really needs all these daft looking space age drivers it’s all sales hype.
