Spotted: Hideki Matsuyama’s Scotty Cameron T2 prototype putter

Published

on

Hideki Matsuyama is no stranger to trying new golf clubs and shafts, so it should be no shock that he has a new Scotty to test out at the AT&T Byron Nelson this week. Hideki has been using Scotty Cameron putters for a long time now, and this new head is marked with “HM T2” in the back cavity. We think that the “HM” is simply Hideki’s initials, while the “T2” refers to the head shape, a Timeless 2.

The Timeless 2 is similar to the Newport 2 but with softer edges and a slightly more beefed-up shape. The face can be a little taller and it can be a little wider from face to back. Most of Hideki’s putters are a silver finish, and I don’t remember if we have seen him with a black putter recently. The black finish is complemented with red paint fill on the single site line on the flange and “HIDEKI” on the heel-side bumper.

The head looks to be 350 grams from the stamping on the sole, and the face has a pretty shallow milling on it. It also features a steel shaft and a black Scotty Cameron Studio Design grip, which, according to Scotty, is part pistol and part paddle in shape.

How data informs Edoardo Molinari’s WITB

Published

on

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from a piece our Andrew Tursky originally wrote for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Head over there for the full article.

Molinari said his data-driven approach has helped him most with strategy – more specifically, it has opened his eyes to use his driver more often off the tee.

“Strategy is a big thing,” Molinari said. “I think off the tee especially, I’m a good driver of the ball, and once I started looking at the numbers a bit more in-depth, I realized I could hit driver a lot more often than I used to. So I would say, these days, I hit driver a lot more than other players simply because, A) I’m more accurate than average and, B) I’m a little bit shorter than average. Especially on shorter holes, I try and push it up a bit more, as much as I can, and I feel like I’ve been gaining shots in that area for sure.”

On that note, Molinari recently switched into Titleist’s new GT3 8-degree driver, which he said provides more consistent spin rates and roughly 5 to 6 more yards of distance compared to his previous driver.

On the lower end of his setup, Molinari uses four wedges (PW, 52, 56 and 60 degrees) – a decision that was solidified by the proof he found in the data.

“Looking at the numbers, I realized that I could gain a lot more with the wedges … if I didn’t have a 3-iron,” Molinari said. “So I basically have a bit of a bigger gap between my 4-iron and the hybrid. But the thing is, once you’re that far away from the green, all you’re trying to do is just trying to hit the green. So I don’t need a perfect number there, but I’m happier to have some more options around the greens, and especially from shots in the 75- to 125-yard range.”
