WGC Match Play Tour Truck Report: New putters for Kuchar, McIlroy, Poulter

Published

on

With a field of just 64 players at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas—and some trucks not making the nearly 20-hour trip between PGA National and Austin Country Club—there’s not a massive amount to report this week.

Nevertheless, we’re preparing a plate with the ingredients we have in the GolfWRX kitchen!

Titleist

Switching away from his Odyssey White Hot XG 7, long-time Titleist staffer Ian Poulter is gaming a new Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11 Prototype putter.

Callaway

Si Woo Kim has a new set of Apex TCB irons and a PM Grind 64-degree wedge.

Fresh grooves Jon Rahm in his Jaws Forged wedges. 52-10, 56-12, 60-10. Project X 6.5 shafts.

Kevin Na is in new Epic Speed 3 and 5-woods. He’s sticking with Mitsubishi Diamana RF 70 TX and 80 TX shafts, respectively.

Ping

Viktor Hovland tested Ping Blueprints on TrackMan but is sticking with his i210’s for now.

Andy Sullivan moved into a  G425 3-wood with a Fujikura Ventus Blue shaft.

Corey Conners, Tyrrell Hatton, Bubba Watson, and Louis Oosthuizen may all play new Glide Pro Forged wedges.

TaylorMade

Rory McIlroy tested Fujikura Ventus Blue shafts in his fairway wood (8 X and 9 X, respectively).

McIlroy was also spotted returning to the eight-armed embrace of the TaylorMade Spider X putter family. Interestingly, rather than the pistol grip he’s favored in the past, Rory has a TaylorMade SuperStroke tour grip on the wand.

Tommy Fleetwood put a new SIM2 Max 21-degree fairway wood and MG Hi-Toe 52-degree wedge in play.

Dustin Johnson, who has been in a 10.5-degree SIM head is putting a SIM2 Max in play. 10.5 degrees.

Collin Morikawa put a new MG2 50 degree in play.

Non-staffer Hideki Matsuyama switched into a SIM UDI 3-iron—and added a yardstick to the bag.

Others

OG of armlock putting, Matt Kuchar has a new Bettinardi KM2 DASS VWS putter in the bag.

Additional details on Kuchar’s putter via the folks at Bettinardi.

Material: DASS (Double Aged Stainless Steel)
Neck: Welded Mid-Slant (2.5 Shafts of offset to provide proper visual)
Face Milling: F.I.T. Face (Feel Impact Technology)
Finish: Black Oxide

“Designed and engineered by Robert Bettinardi in 2015-16, and his Tour department for Matt Kuchar, the KM2 DASS VWS to add weights to the top muscles to get the ball into a true roll faster.”

Patrick Reed was spotted testing a TPT shaft.

The PGA Tour arrives in the Lone Star State this week for the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course.

Even with the year winding down and a general shift to a lower gear, there’s still plenty to digest on the equipment front — and WITBs. A ton of WITBs!

This week, we have WITB looks including the likes of Pat Perez and Tony Finau as well as seven general galleries from Memorial Park.

Dig in, below.

Thanks to our friends at @SMS_on_Tour for sending along some shots from the Portugal Masters, not surprisingly contested in Vilamoura, Portugal, at the Victoria Club de Golfe where Thomas Pieters secured a two-stroke victory (see Pieters’ WITB here).

In addition to in-hand WITB photos, we have behind-the-scenes goodies and even a look at the tour trucks in position to service the needs of the European Tour’s staffers.

Let’s take a look at some interesting photos! (Robert Rock’s motley iron arrangement is the featured image).
