Tiger has the new TaylorMade SIM driver in his bag. Explaining what he wanted from it, he said: “I want to be able to draw it and then hit my little slap cut up there kind of shortening the fairway. Trying to find both, meanwhile giving me more distance with both shots, would be ideal.”
One of the major features of the SIM is the Speed Injected Twist Face. This revolutionary face curvature reduces sidespin and delivers straighter shots on off-centre strikes.
Tiger added: “Anytime you have a product that helps you manage your misses, you have a superior product. That’s what Twist Face allows us to do.”
The major change to his bag Tiger made for the PGA Championship was his putter. He usually uses his classic Scotty Cameron Newport GSS, which he won all but one of his 15 Majors with, but he changed to a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Timeless Prototype.
It is still a Newport blade but is a little longer than his older putter, which eases some strain on his back which means he can also practice for longer. The putter has weight adjustability on the sole and it features a Ping PP58 grip, the same putter grip he used as a junior golfer.
