Tiger isn’t playing this week, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t making news. There is still a lot of talk about his “illegal” drops at the 2013 Masters Tournament and at the 2013 THE PLAYERS Championship last week. He didn’t win the Masters this year, but he DID win THE PLAYERS. Tiger now has 78 PGA TOUR wins, just four shy of Sam Snead’s record. The way Tiger is playing this year, he might break that record this year! Tiger is at home this week resting, but what was he playing during THE PLAYERS? Check out what was in his bag last week.
Ball: Nike One Tour D
Driver: Nike VR Tour with Mitsubishi Diamana White Board 73X (9.5 degrees)
3-wood: Nike VR_S Covert (15 degrees)
5-wood: Nike VR_S Covert (19 degrees)
Irons (3-PW): Nike VR Pro Blade
Wedges: Nike VR Pro (56, 60 degrees)
Putter: Nike Method 001
Tiger is all Nike, but uses a PING grip on his putter. He always has, and he always will. Next time you see Tiger on TV, look at his grip. That is OLD school right there! According to E. Michael Johnson, earlier this year Tiger switched to Nike’s VR_S Covert 5-wood and added the 3-wood at the Masters. He used both of those off the tee all week at THE PLAYERS. He should just leave the driver in the hotel room… he hits the 3-wood like a champ. Glad to see Tiger holding the trophy on Sunday afternoon. He is hitting the ball great, has good control with his short irons and wedges, and is putting better than anyone on TOUR. Safe to say Tiger’s “back”?
