Justin Rose adjusts his TaylorMade equipment set-up ahead of The Open.


Justin Rose is well known for being meticulous when it comes to his equipment and preparation for the majors. Now that The Open Championship is upon us, he’s made some changes to his usual equipment set-up.

Typically (when playing regular PGA Tour events), the top end of Justin’s bag usually consists of a Driver, 3W & 5W, then his longest iron would be his TaylorMade P790 4-iron.

With a premium on accuracy off the tee at Carnoustie, having to place certain tee shots strategically short, long or in between the pot bunkers.  Justin has opted to put a P790 UDI 2-iron & a P790 3-iron in the bag to give himself a full range of options off the tee to cover all the relevant distances required to avoid the penal pot bunkers when called upon.

With Justin adding the extra clubs at the top end of his bag, he’s had to adjust his wedge set-up to compensate.  He’ll be using a TaylorMade Milled Grind 56deg SB12 bent to 54.5deg in a Raw finish, and also a TaylorMade HiToe 60deg LB09 bent to 59deg.

Justin’s been putting the hard work in this week with swing coach Sean Foley & putting coach Phil Kenyon.

Justin’s preparation for the Major’s is second to none, he thrives on the difficulty of the Major’s and always performs on the toughest golf courses (Carnoustie certainly falls into that category).  I’m sure we’ll see Justin in contention to win the Claret Jug next Sunday.
