Tiger Woods spotted testing new “TaylorMade GAPR LO” driving iron at Carnoustie

Published

on

Ahead of the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie, Tiger Woods was spotted by social media testing a “TaylorMade GAPR LO” driving iron.

The GAPR LO has been on our radar here at GolfWRX with photos recently popping up on our forums; our Two Guys Talking Golf podcast investigated the photos extensively. Follow the links above to learn more about the iron.

Below are the photos from social media that suggest Tiger is testing the TaylorMade GAPR iron.

Based on the photo above, it appears Tiger is going with a Mitsubishi Tensei Orange shaft, at least in his early-week testing. We’ll follow this closely as the week continues.

Do you think Tiger will use the new iron during competition at the Open Championship?

    TW finally embracing all that technology has to offer. He knew he’d better for this last run.

    Will it be parallel or taper tip? Did they shave that shaft down for TW or did they make a taper tip version specifically for him?

Dustin Johnson using a mini-driver at the 2021 U.S. Open?

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been commenting on a potentially significant change to Dustin Johnson’s equipment setup at the 2021 U.S. Open.

Per TaylorMade Rep Chris Trott’s Instagram, included in DJ’s build sheet for this week is a mini driver with an LA Golf shaft, as well as a 15.5 degree Sim Max HL driver.

Phil Mickelson’s mini-driver has received plenty of attention recently, as the 50-year-old utilized the club so effectively on his way to winning the 2021 PGA Championship.

Our members have been speculating on the potential use of a mini-driver for DJ at Torrey and whether the move could be inspired by Phil, as the World Number One goes in search of his second U.S. Open title.

  • CCUgolfer23: “Would be interesting to see this combo since his driving last week wasn’t great.”
  • bladehunter: “Doesn’t look like a driver. Or it’s a secondary driver. Like Phil, 44 inches is a 3 wood these days.”
  • Valtiel: “DJ quite notably uses a pretty short 3-wood though, especially for his height. 42.75″ I believe. Also almost always higher lofted, 16-17*. I wonder if this is maybe something for him to turn over and goes further than his 3w?”
