Accuracy (direction and distance) more important and he got no issue with launch, in fact it’s the bread and butter club in the bag. That’s the club that gets the job done at Royal Melbourne to shot course record on the last day of Australian Master amateur! Lots of stinger shots to kept it in the fairway 250-300, high & low, left & right!

He's playing a Oban CT115 in the hybrid. Untipped I believe.

God Bless

Ya, it’s a straight in X flex for the length on hybrid set up.

This is so cool to me. Played in a couple junior tournaments with Shintaro back in the day, had a feeling he’d make it. Seemed like he won everything he played in.

Wedges look nice but you need a heavier hammer (or more strength...grrr!!) for the stampings. They look shallow!

Easy to do that, When you ground 6-7 wedges already for the day and working on this wedges at 10at night. It’s my sore hands, it’s not my “husky” big hammer.
