Abe Ancer Miura deal
Abraham Ancer’s new Miura deal is far from your standard gear agreement
By: Jonathan Wall

Ancer uses a bag of mixed brands, including a Callaway driver, TaylorMade fairway woods, a Srixon driving iron, Miura irons, a Miura wedge, two Artisan Golf wedges, an Odyssey putter and a Titleist golf ball. While Ancer doesn’t have a full bag equipment deal, he does have a unique partnership with Miura.

For more information on the clubs Ancer used this week to win, check out his full specifications below.

Driver: Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond LS (Mitsubishi Tensei CK Pro Blue 60TX shaft), 8.5 degrees

Callaway Epic Speed Driver

OUR TAKE: It’s good to have options. With Callaway’s new-look Epic Max and Epic Speed, testers found two equally appealing packages: One geared for those who need a bit more forgiveness and another for the better player craving a penetrating launch. “I could put both in the bag,” said a tester. “Both were fantastic on misses, and the flatter flight of the Speed was very consistent. I could totally see myself throwing in a strong-lofted Speed and Max 5-wood to launch it high. That sounds really appealing.” Don’t be surprised if other golfers follow suit. THE DETAILS: While the new Jailbreak system in the driver is sure to garner the most interest, it’s actually not the only club receiving a complete makeover. The Epic fairway woods feature Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades that are spread wider apart to stiffen the structure, allowing the C300 maraging steel face cup to flex at impact. The forward CG location on Epic Speed, combined with a new leading-edge design, promotes a strong ball flight with less spin. An oversized head and shallow face make Epic Max an ideal option for a wider handicap range. Launch and spin can be altered depending on where the two sole weights (2 and 14 grams) are positioned.

3-wood: TaylorMade SIM2 Max (Project X Evenflow Riptide shaft), 15 degrees

TaylorMade SIM2 Max Fairway Wood

OUR TAKE: “I love the high launch.” With that simple statement, one of our testers summed up exactly what TaylorMade was striving for with its new SIM2 fairways. While the overall look of the SIM2 fairways is comparable to the original SIM heads, our GOLF testers repeatedly commented on the higher trajectories they were seeing. “Even my mishits are towering, the ball just flies,” another tester said. “It feels lively and easy to hit off the ground.” THE DETAILS: It’s no accident our testers saw noticeable height increases with the SIM2 fairway woods. That was by design. While continuing to evolve its versatile V-Steel soles of last year, TaylorMade has redesigned the SIM2 heads to move weight lower to the ground for higher launch and more forgiveness. TaylorMade’s smaller and more workable SIM2 Titanium heads utilize 80-gram sole plates and a ZATECH Titanium Faces, whereas the SIM2 Max fairways are designed with C300 steel faces and have bigger heads for increased accuracy and distance Check out 150+ reviews from our gear experts in the ClubTest 2021 collection.

5-wood: TaylorMade M2 2017 (Matrix VLCT shaft), 18 degrees

Driving iron: Srixon ZX (4-iron; Mitsubishi MMT shaft), 23 degrees

Irons: Miura TC-201 (5-PW; Mitsubishi MMT 105TX shafts)

The Miura TC-201 incorporates progressive weighting in the sole which provides a lower center of gravity in the long irons for added height and higher trajectory on longer shots. Slightly changing to a higher center of gravity in the short irons creates a lower trajectory and more control on shorter shots.

Wedges: Miura HB (52 degrees), Artisan Golf prototype (56 and 60 degrees), with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts

Putter: Odyssey White Hot No. 5

Golf ball: Titleist Pro V1
