G-Mac won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in a sudden death play-off against the inform Russell Knox and Jason Bohn, it was G-Mac’s first win on the PGA Tour for three years!
In my previous blog i wrote about how Kristoffer Broberg won the BMW Masters on the European Tour this week with a 5yr old Callaway RAZR Hawk Tour driver.
On the PGA Tour, it was G-Mac who won this week also using an old driver, a 3yr old Callaway Optiforce 440.
Other notable players sticking to their old tried and tested driver’s are…
Shane Lowry: using a 5yr old Taylormade Burner Superfast TP.
Brandt Snedeker: using a 5yr old Taylormade Burner Superfast (non-tp model).
If you look in bags on tour, you’d be surprised at the number of players who use “older” equipment (woods, irons, wedges & putters). Golf is a numbers game, and certain players are comfortable with their distances and prefer to stick with equipment they feel at home with rather than changing on a regular basis for the sake of searching for an extra few yards.
