It’s Masters Week – What shafts are being played out there?

Last year Adam Scott won the 2013 Master’s Tournament using a great amount of talent and of course a great line up of shafts in his sticks.  What Scott had in his bag were Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8X in his Driver, Fujikura Rombax Pro 95 in his fairways, KBS Tour X in his hybrids and irons and the KBS hi-rev in his wedges.  Based on the top 23 players that are competing in the Masters this year, as predicted by Golf Digest, it looks as though there will be a completely diverse and array of shafts in the Masters Tournament for 2014.   Within that list is of course our Reigning Champ – Adam Scott,  Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia, Matt Kuchar, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson.  So what are they playing?

Luke Donald is playing Accra SC 65 X in his Driver, Accra Tour Z 75 in his fairway woods, Fujikura Motore Speeder HB 8.8 in his hybrids, TT Dynamic Golds in his irons and spinners in his wedges.

Sergio Garcia is playing Mistubishi Rayon Diamana White Board 103 X in his driver and fairway woods, Nippon NS Pro Tour 130 X in his irons and Nippon NS Pro Proto in his wedges.

Matt Kuchar is playing the Accra M-55 Proto Tour in his Driver, Aldila Tour Blue 75 X in his fairways, Graphite Design Tour AD DI 95x Hyb and the Aldila Tour hyb, Aerotech Steelfiber i95 in his irons and the KBS wedge 120 and TT DG S400 Tour Issue in his wedges.

Rory McIlory is playing the Mistubiahi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver 70 TiNi, a Fujikura Rombax Pro 95 in his fairway woods and Project X 7.0 in his irons and wedges.

Phil Mickelson is playing the Mistubishi Rayon Fubuki K 70 in his Driver, the Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black 80 in his fairways and the KBS Tour V in both his irons and wedges.

While every shaft manufacturer has a presence on the PGA Tour, these players are good enough, and picky enough that they will not play a shaft if it doesn’t fit their launch “window” or perform the way they want in terms of workability and feel.  We have experience with every one of the shafts mentioned above, and more.  What we do know is that what works for PGA Tour or LPGA Tour players may or may not work for you.  That is why we spend so much time researching and testing shafts and heads so that we can fit clubs to your unique swing.  So schedule a fitting and see what we can do for you to improve consistency, accuracy and maybe get a little more distance.
