    I thought the same, appears to say Flex-S. Not sure.



    Although, in that particular shaft I don't believe there is too much difference between the S and X. Both pretty stout.

    Looks like Louis hasn't been skipping any meals lately.



    Why he has a G15 cover on the Anser is anybody's guess ...

    Oosthuizen does play a bit of a soft driver shaft for someone who hits it as far as he does. He used to use an I20 with a PX 6.5 before he switched to the Anser.

    Not 100% sure but I believe I read on here they are tipped 1" or 1.5"

    Right per Ping's website they bare tipped a lot so really a soft X flex. That shaft is pretty stout to begin with and I would call his tempo pretty smooth.

    Asked fujikura on twitter he prefers S because they say he likes the sensation of feeling the shaft loading.
  • onafridayonafriday Members Posts: 1,414 ✭✭
    I was talking to a Ping rep last weekend and he said (for what its worth) Ping's player's contracts usually only mandate the hat - the rest, which Ping putter / irons / woods is entirely up to the player.



    He said they are holding a lot of new G5 fairway woods just for LO, because he's so fond of them.

    The S flex Tour spec just has a softer butt section. Same tip as the X, plus Louis' driver is tipped 1". So it plays stout.

    Wasn't long ago that LO swore by his Nike SQ 5 wood. Said it was the one club in his bag he would save if they were on fire! Just another club ho like the rest of us!!

    Just watched LO on TV and he didn't use the Anser draiver, maybe the Rapture V2.

    I know he just replaced the Fuji tour spec shaft with an Aldila RIP Phenom NL. Also dropped the 5 wood for a G20 hybrid.

    Does anyone else notice Louis ocassionaly switches back to the Ping Scottsdale Anser 2 putter then back to the zbs? I believe he used the Anser 2 at the WGC match-play.
  • rodney65rodney65 Members Posts: 41
    I remember he was playing some taylormade fairways only a season or two ago... which seemed quite unusual for a ping staffer.

    It actually looked like Louis was rolling the Scottsdale TR B60 yesterday. Can anyone confirm?

    Would make sense. Heard he was testing that and a G25 3-wood at Doral.

    And…….Truman Capote, Nabokov, Steinbeck to name a few all preferred the Blackwing no. 2 or HB pencil to write their novels. I'm convinced we could all be great writers if we would only choose the Blackwing pencil. You get my point.

    Interested as well. In some pics it looks kinda like a SLDR, but the pics look to blurry for me to confirm. Does appear that he's playing the rapture DI with Speeder TS.



    One thing is for sure though with LO, the woods and putter are never safe, at least as of late.
