WITB Notes from Callaway

On his Apex Pro 19 Irons

“This week, Schauffele has the new Apex Pro 19 Irons in the bag at Kapalua. Schauffele is particularly fond of these irons – he played with the prototype version of the Apex Pro 19 Irons throughout the end of last season and used them in his WGC win during the fall series. Xander has told Callaway Tour Reps that the weighting through the turf feels great for him, regardless of the course conditions. He also likes the look of the thin topline and the leading edge on the iron, and he’s very comfortable with the distance consistency, the window of the ball flight, and how he can shape shots.”

    I agree with previous posters, unless he has a custom black BB, this looks to be the black AD-DI.

    Awesome. I like this kid and also like GW. Used to think GW was a prick but saw him help a Vet who had fallen over at a tourney. He was walking by and went over to help te Vet up. Really blew my mind about him. Hope they both have a great season and thanks for the insight guys/Wrx.

    That shaft is black, so it can’t be the BB.

    He used to game the BB (blue bullet) in his M3, but seems like the AD DI (black colored) was a better option for the Epic Flash SZ head.

    Looks like a DI in the driver pic. Is he still using bb? And also his new apex pro irons are the same as the retail ones? Chrome finish?

    No offense to this guy but I really wanted to see Woodlands WITB since he’s moved to Wilson.

      He has new Wilson yet to be released blades 3-pw, a Ping 400 LST driver, looked like a Cobra 3wd because it had rails on the bottom, unless the new Wilson has rails on it, aWilson driving iron 2 probably the F4 or F5 , can’t remember which, he had Vokey wedges and a Scotty putter. His deal was for only 9 clubs with Wilson. His deal is so fresh he probably hasn’t had time to fail in the woods. I don’t know shaft info but look at previous WITB, the shafts are probably the same as most pros don’t mess with that too much when switching companies. Hope that helps

    That sure looked like the sole of a Titleist 3 wood for his second shot on 18 in the fourth round

Inside Collin Morikawa’s recent golf ball, driver, 3-wood, and “Proto” iron changes

Published

on

As you probably know by now, Collin Morikawa switched putters after the first round of The Masters, and he ultimately went on to finish T3.

The putter was far from the only change he made last week, however, and his bag is continuing to change this week at the 2024 RBC Heritage.

On the range of The Masters, Morikawa worked closely with Adrian Reitveld, TaylorMade’s Senior Manager of Tour at TaylorMade, to find the perfect driver and 3-wood setups.

Morikawa started off 2024 by switching into TaylorMade’s Qi10 Max driver, but since went back to his faithful TaylorMade SIM – yes, the original SIM from 2020. Somehow, some way, it seems Morikawa always ends up back in that driver, which he used to win the 2020 PGA Championship, and the 2021 Open Championship.

At The Masters, however, Rietveld said the duo found the driver head that allowed “zero compromise” on Morikawa’s preferred fade flight and spin. To match his preferences, they landed on a TaylorMade Qi10 LS 9-degree head, and the lie angle is a touch flatter than his former SIM.

“It’s faster than his gamer, and I think what we found is it fits his desired shot shape, with zero compromise” Rietveld told GolfWRX.com on Wednesday at the RBC Heritage.

Then, to replace his former SIM rocket 3-wood, Morikawa decided to switch into the TaylorMade Qi10 core model 13.5-degree rocket head, with an adjustable hosel.

“He likes the spin characteristics of that head,” Rietveld said. “Now he’s interesting because with Collin, you can turn up at a tournament, and you look at his 3-wood, and he’s changed the setting. One day there’s more loft on it, one day there’s less loft on it. He’s that type of guy. He’s not scared to use the adjustability of the club.

“And I think he felt our titanium head didn’t spin as low as his original SIM. So we did some work with the other head, just because he liked the feel of it. It was a little high launching, so we fit him into something with less loft. It’s a naughty little piece of equipment.” 

In addition to the driver and fairway wood changes, Morikawa also debuted his new “MySymbol” jersey No. 5 TP5x golf ball at The Masters. Morikawa’s choice of symbols is likely tied to his love of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.

Not enough changes for you? There’s one more.

On Wednesday at the 2024 RBC Heritage, Morikawa was spotted with a new TaylorMade “Proto” 4-iron in the bag. If you recall, it’s the same model that Rory McIlroy debuted at the 2024 Valero Texas Open.

According to Morikawa, the new Proto 4-iron will replace his old P-770 hollow-bodied 4-iron.

“I used to hit my P-770 on a string, but sometimes the distance would be a little unpredictable,” Morikawa told GolfWRX.com. “This one launches a touch higher, and I feel I can predict the distance better. I know Rory replaced his P-760 with it. I’m liking it so far.”
