Hello folks,<br />
<br />
Looking for as much info on "what's in The Bag" for Mr. Pavin's 1995 US Open victory. Seen old footage that he was using Cleveland and possibly a Bullseye putter.<br />
<br />
Can't find any links or articles on what he was using in his bag in 1995 US open.<br />
<br />
Any help would be much appreciated.<br />
<br />
Thanks in advance.

    The VAS irons are probably the most ridiculous irons ever - at least to ever win a major championship...

    I remember hitting some shortly before or after that. They felt great but I couldn't get over the look of them.

    Just goes to show it's the indian and not the arrow. I'd love to try a set. The leading edge looks sharpish though which is a pet peeve of mine. I talked a friend into buying a set of the VAS+ irons back in the day and he loved them.<br />

    The Maltby data shows they have a high CG, and the CG is toward the heel side. Most likely because the hosel attaches so high up on the face. MPF rating is -197. The lowest rating of just about any iron they have ever rated.
    Ping G400 Max driver w/Aldila Rogue 125 Silver 60S
    Cobra (Lexi blue) F7 5 wood w/Aldila Rogue Black 70S

    Ping G410 irons w/Recoil 95S
    Ping Glide 55/60 wedges w/Recoil 110S
    Ping Anser/Arna putter - the "real deal!"

    You sure he wasn't bagging his Bullseye putter? I remember him carrying that and not an 8802, but I could be wrong.

    Just looked at pics from 95 open. He was clearly using a 8802 type Cleveland putter. I'm surprised too. I thought he was always a bullseye guy.

    Can anyone recall what Corey used before he went to Cleveland?<br />
    <br />
    In the early '90s he had a titleist bag but the irons were dark headed (unchromed or gunmetal) cavity backs. What were they?

    I have always wondered about this saying. Wouldn't the arrow be the ball, and the club the bow?
    I see a gap. There definitely is a gap.

    My father played the VAS 792 for years. They were sh*t-ugly, but they performed surprisingly well. I played a few rounds with them, they were easy to hit, slightly workable, feel was really OK. They went a little high for my swing style, other than that real good clubs. The woods were equally hideous, but they transmitted zero feel to the hands. Results were so-so, but they just felt dead for me.

    Driver: Callaway GBB 10,5, Kuro Kage reg.
    3w: Callaway V Series 15°, Bassara Reg
    5w: Callaway V Series 19°, Bassara Reg
    Hybrid: Callaway Razr HL 4, reg. graphite
    Irons: Callaway Razr X, reg. graphite, 5-9, PW AW, SW, LW
    Flatstick: Odyssey 2-Ball White Ice Broomstick 46" (No, I don't anchor;-))
    Ball of choice: Pinnacle Soft
