Take a closer look at his equipment setup.

Driver: Ping G425 LST, (Fujikura Speeder 661 TR X-flex shaft), 9 degree

PING G425 LST Driver

The LST model is designed with a pear-shaped head and measures 445cc to deliver spin reductions of approximately 200 rpm compared to the G410 LST and 500-700 rpm versus the G425 Max. The smaller head size of the LST employs a 17-gram CG shifter with three settings (Draw, Neutral, Fade) to fit the launch conditions best suited to the golfer’s swing and desired ball flight. Stock graphite shafts: PING ALTA CB 55 Slate (R, S, X), ALTA Distanza 40 No-upcharge shaft options: PING Tour 65 (R, S, X), Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Orange 65 (R, S, X), and Aldila Rogue White 130 M.S.I. 70 (R, S, X) Standard grip: Arccos Caddie Smart Grip (Golf Pride Lite 360 Tour Velvet) in four sizes (Red -1/32″, Aqua -1/64″, White Std., Gold +1/32″)

3-wood: TaylorMade Stealth Plus (Fujikura Ventus Blue 7 X-flex shaft), 15 degrees

Utility: Titleist U505 (Graphite Design Tour AD-DI Hybrid 85X shaft), 21 degrees

Titleist U505 Custom Driving Iron

An extremely versatile, high-launching utility iron that now looks and feels dramatically better. U•505 lets you reclaim your long iron game. Drawing on Tour input, the refined design provides the high, explosive launch you expect from a utility, now with a remarkably solid feel and sound. U•505 is the ultimate, high-launching utility. A new, cleaner design creates more confidence at address, while the refined Max Impact Technology, reengineered chassis and new Variable Bounce Sole all improve the feel and overall performance. It all adds up to a versatile utility that plays like an iron. TOUR-VALIDATED LOOKS With a shorter blade and shallow face, U•505 sets up the way Tour Pros feel a utility should. Now with an even cleaner design, there is nothing to distract you from hitting the exact shot and shape your playing position demands. ENHANCED FEEL With distance as a priority for a utility, engineering feel becomes a unique challenge. For U•505, Titleist engineers use a refined Max Impact Technology with added dampening in the polymer muscle badge to guide the frequencies created at impact into the ideal player range. IMPROVED OFF-CENTER ACCURACY U•505 features a more stable, reengineered chassis and a lower CG position to help maintain speed and stability on strikes made away from center. The new single taper face improves performance towards the heel for tighter overall distance dispersion. EFFORTLESS TURF INTERACTION Working with Tour Pros and the grind experts at Vokey Design, our engineers were able to further improve our Variable Bounce Sole by softening the trailing edge to allow the club to flow faster through the turf, even after contact. A scoring iron refinement for one of the longest clubs in your bag.
