Valspar Championship Tour Truck Report: DJ sticking with new flatstick, Kisner ditches the armlock

Published

on

With little margin for error at the Copperhead Course this week, it’s not surprising to see few major changes from the participants in this edition of the Valspar Championship.

That said, we’re still spotting plenty of interesting things in Florida, including the apparent end of Kevin Kisner’s armlock experiment and Dustin Johnson sticking with a surprise putter switch he made in the final round of the RBC Heritage.

Remember, you can check out all our photos from the Valspar here!

Titleist

Viktor Hovland is putting a 2021 Pro V1 in play after using it last week at the Zurich Classic. According to Titleist, he’s seeing higher ball speed with the driver and more control into the green.

Denny McCarthy is testing a TSi2 driver (10 degrees). He’s seeing more speed and better spin control.

Roger Sloan is testing a U500 4-iron, which he finds easy to launch and is able to work it both ways.

Byeong-Hun An put a Fujikura Motore X F3 6 X in his TSi3 driver.

Staffer Jimmy Walker tested a L.A.B. Blade putter before returning to this Scotty Cameron.

Callaway

Kevin Kisner moved from the armlock to a “very stable and consistent” 2-Ball Ten putter with a Red Stroke Lab double-bend shaft. SuperStroke Traxion 2.0 Tour grip. 34.25 inches. 3.5 degrees of loft.

Grayson Murray is testing a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 9 X in a Mavrik Sub Zero 7-wood.

New to us since we last saw him, Phil Mickelson is going with a Callaway PM Grind ’19 “Raw” (52, 58, 64) setup.  

TaylorMade

After putting it into play for the final round of the RBC Heritage, it looks like Dustin Johnson is sticking with a new TaylorMade Brandon 1 prototype putter and LA golf graphite putter shaft. If this putter seems familiar, it’s because we saw Tommy Fleetwood put something very similar into play a couple of weeks ago too (pictured below in photo from TaylorMade).

Ping

Andrew Putnam is testing a Fujikura Ventus Red 6 X shaft in his driver.

Scottie Scheffler (not a staffer) is decreasing loft in his Ping G425 LST driver.

PXG

James Hahn tested a Cobra RadSpeed driver with a prototype Aldila shaft.

SEG

Scott PUREd KBS C-Taper 125 Custom Black shafts for Gary Woodland and Project X 6.5 shafts for Jordan Spieth (3-PW, 6.0 in wedges).

Free agents/others

Justin Rose was spotted testing a number of grips.

Chris Kirk is testing a Cobra RadSpeed driver with a Mitsubishi 1K shaft.

Both Brendon Todd and Rory Sabbatini are testing Mitsubishi MMT iron shafts.

William McGirt is testing a Graphite Design Tour AD DI HB 95 S shaft in a Callaway Apex Hybrid.

      putter model is a “BANDON 1”, not a Brandon 1. Also, funny to note that TM just announced the DJ signature Spyder and he switches to this. Love the name of the new stick though. Love that place.

        Funny that you’d even mention that the DJ spider release because it was not a stock offering…. they don’t even make new spider tours anymore bud…. funny that you’re so dumb
