Patrick Cantlay makes big equipment change at RBC Heritage

Published

on

Patrick Cantlay’s missed cut at the Masters was a shock for most golf fans, and it has led to quite a significant change in the 29-year-old’s bag.

On Thursday at the RBC Heritage, the Californian ditched his long-time Scotty Cameron GSS prototype in favor of an Odyssey 2 ball putter.

Cantlay began the year in excellent form on the greens, but since the Genesis, he has tailed off in this department, sparking the change to the new Odyssey 2 ball flat-stick, which is popular for its high MOI and excellent alignment aid.

We’ll keep an eye on whether Cantlay, who shot level par on day one, continues with the new gamer in the bag for the rest of the week.

    Putter changes are not due to a poorly fit putter or one that won’t get the job done. It’s changed out due to a lack of confidence in ones putting. Cantlay needs to get his head straight.

A closer look at Bryson DeChambeau’s low-lofted fairway wood

Published

on

Editor’s note: We filed this piece for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report

This week’s Wells Fargo Championship is Bryson DeChambeau’s first start since the Masters. DeChambeau, who’s won twice this season, is always experimenting, so it should be no surprise that he was seen on the range this week with a unique club built specifically to handle the tremendous swing speed he creates.

The new club is a custom Cobra RadSpeed Big Tour Proto B fairway wood. The ‘B’ stands for Bryson. It only has 10.5 degrees of loft – the same amount as some players’ drivers — with a fixed long hosel. The standard RadSpeed features an adjustable hosel to change the lie and loft.

The original Cobra Baffler was built in the 1980s as one of golf’s first utility clubs. The rails were designed to help the head glide through the turf.

On Dechambeau’s club, the signature Cobra Baffler railed sole has been modified to have the rails towards the front of the head, closer to the face. The club also has an adjustable weight in the sole.

“We started with a custom head and I added small rails via welding after the fact,” said Cobra tour manager Ben Schomin. “(The club) worked OK before rails and much better after thanks to improved strike consistency with the rails.”
