Adam Scott gives in-depth breakdown of his WITB 

Published

on

Adam Scott has a new podcast, ‘FairGame’, where he discusses a range of topic related to the game of golf, and episode 4 features a video that is a gearheads’ dream, with Scott breaking down his 2021 Masters WITB in stunning detail.

You can check out the video below for Scott’s full breakdown at the end of the article. Subscribe to the podcast here.

Irons

Before the Masters, Adam Scott swapped his trusty Titleist 680 irons for the brand’s 620 irons which surprised many golf fans.

In the video, filmed after the Honda Classic, the Australian still has his 680 irons in the bag, suggesting that his decision to change for Augusta came very late. Scott explains that his choice to game the 680 irons consistently is an “aesthetic thing” and that he prefers the offset look of the 680s.

It’ll be interesting to see what irons Scott has in the bag the next time he tees it up, as he reveals he has talked to Titleist about “bending, offsetting to the 620s”.

Wedges

Adam Scott has a four wedge Vokey setup (48 degree PW, 52 degree, 56 degree, 60 degree).

His 48 degree 10F wedge, he describes as “your pretty standard” wedge and “nothing fancy happening on the sole”, while his 52 degree 12F wedge, Scott says has a little more bounce but a similar sole.

Scott says his 56 degree 10S wedge has a little relief in the back of the club to provide some versatility to manipulate the face, while his newest wedge is the 60 degree 12D wedge that the Australian says has a very strong grind on the sole.

Per Scott, this provides more forward bounce and it also has relief in the heel to open up the clubface and “take some of the bounce away from the heel.” The Aussie says he put the new wedge in the bag to keep the club more square.

Woods

Scott plays all of Titleist’s new TSi woods, which he put in the bag around September, and calls the clubs a “good improvement” on its predecessors. 

The 40-year-old initially played the TSi3 driver, then TSi4 and now plays the TSi2, which he says is “probably the most forgiving” of the family for tour pros.

Scott has the club at 9 degrees and in an A2 position (just upright, but standard loft) after playing around with the position a little bit, and he has settled on the Ventus Red shaft – which he enjoys for its soft profile so he can “feel” the shots.

On his TSi2 7-wood, Scott says it’s the first time he’s gamed a lofted wood since he was 14. The club is 21 degrees set at D1, making it “around 20.5 degrees”, says the Aussie, who loves that he can land the ball softly from the 240-yard range. The club is equipped with a 100g Graphite Design DI 10 X Flex shaft.

Putter

Scott says his current flat-stick is based on his 2013 Masters’ winning gamer. His Scotty Cameron Xperimental Rev X11 features a slightly smaller head than his putter from eight years ago, and Scott explains the reason for that is his putter length is 45 inches, 4 inches shorter than his 2013 putter.

The Aussie calls the putter, which he began using at Riviera this year, incredibly stable with a super high MOI and very forgiving.

    Is that Ben Clymer from Hodinkee? I wonder how he started working with Adam Scott?

      I thought the same thing! That has to be him – I didn’t realize Ben was into golf. Like him even more now 🙂

        Yes, it is Ben. In their first podcast, Ben said he has been friends with Adam for about 4-5 years. My guess is they met through Rolex, Adam being an ambassador and a big watch guy also.

Equipment

Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama make big gear changes in Napa

Published

on

Andrew Tursky was on site at the Fortinet Championship this week and got all he could handle in terms of new equipment news. There were new irons, drivers, and even headcovers all over the range, so we had to dig into two of the biggest stories out there on this week’s Two Guys Talking Golf Podcast (give us a follow on Instagram: @tg2wrx).

Rickie Fowler’s new irons

Rickie Fowler has been changing a lot of equipment in his bag as he has struggled to get his golf game back into shape. We have seen him with different drivers, shafts, irons, and putters throughout the 2021-2022 season. Fowler has typically played some form of blade during his career, and Cobra even made him some signature Rev33 blades that were beautiful, but razor thin and intimidating for us mortal golfers.

Rickie showed up to the Fortinet with some brand new, unreleased, Cobra King Tour irons. The King Tour irons look a lot like the current Cobra King Tour MIM irons, and we can only assume that the new Tour will replace the MIM.

The interesting thing about the King Tour irons is that they look a little larger than his preferred blades and that they might have a little more ball speed and distance built into them. From the images you can tell there is a little slot behind the face that might be filled with some type of polymer.

Rickie didn’t get into the tech of the new King Tour irons but did tell Tursky that he was gaining around 3-4 yards on shots that he stuck low on the face. He finished the first round of the Fortinet Championship in the top four, so the new irons have seen some success under pressure. I know many of us hope to see Rickie back to form soon, and maybe these new King Tour irons can be the catalyst.

Hideki Matsuyama’s driver change

The other big story comes from a former Masters Champion testing out some new drivers on the range, Hideki Matsuyama. Matsuyama is well known as a golfer who loves to test and tinker with new golf equipment. Each week there is a good chance that he will have multiple drivers, irons, and fairways in the bag searching for the perfect club that week.

Earlier this week, Hideki was spotted with some new, unreleased, Srixon drivers out on the range in Napa. We spotted a few pros testing the new Srixon ZX7 MkII and ZX 5 MkII LS on the range.

Andrew spoke to the Srixon reps and learned Hideki has been trying the new drivers and seems to have settled on a Srixon ZX5 MkII in 10.5 degrees of loft (and his trusty Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8 TX shaft).

The ZX5 MkII LS looks to have an adjustable weight on the sole that is moved far forward —closer to the face — to possibly lower the spin. We haven’t heard anything specific from Srixon on the new drivers, but with their recent success, we would expect to see some solid performance out of the line.
