Hideki Matsuyama - WITB - 2022 Farmers Insurance Open


Recommended Posts

  • pga43 changed the title to Hideki Matsuyama - WITB - 2022 Farmers Insurance Open

Has been a long time since I have ever seen a top 100 player using a non-contracted Cobra club. Looks like they shaved the rails down on the fairway too.

It's so great to see Hideki has kept the Srixon driver in play, and he is winning with it! 

 

Usually by now he had switched over to the new TM driver.

@SmashGolfBall The lead tape on the shafts needs to be discussed at length. 

 

The shaft was a used pull he bought off here at WRX BST trying to save a few bucks, and had too much tip prep.  I normally use a lap of black electrical tape to conceal excess tip prep, but Hideki used a lap of lead tape.   Nothing to see here, carry on ! 🤣

Love the use of lead tape at the hosel and below the grip.

 

I really wish Cleveland had released RTX4 Forged like that as that 56* grind is right up my street. Pretty funky 3-way grind on the lob wedge, but I'd like to try it.

 

Anyone know what shaft he plays in his irons? As he's got a AD-DI 10TX in his 5w, I'm assuming he just drops a steel bar into his irons?

Dude is playing seriously heavy hitter material in the top end and S400 in the steel. Fascinating.

S400s are pretty stout, but after seeing the shafts in his woods, I was sort of betting on the DG X7s. I guess it's more of a weight and heft thing for him?

 

Yeah, a "feel" thing maybe, S400s are pretty weighty ( a few grams more than X100 IIRC). That said, he transitions VERY hard and I would think that the X100 would have been in the irons. But what do I know, he's on TV winning The Masters and stuff, I'm pounding a keyboard and posting useless commentary on his iron shaft choices LOL!

Bi-level soles on the irons have been ground off.  There are two 7 irons in the bag and the older one clearly has the bi-level sole.

 

Lead tape under the grip used as a counter weight on a few clubs. 

 

Smallest of small pieces of lead tape on the back side of head and hosel on the 56* wedge.

 

Lots going on in that bag!

What hosel adapter sleeves are those in his Driver(s)?!  They are longer looking and I would guess get the lofts to where they are needed.  I wish something like that would be available for the "mortals" who need to knock down the loft on that driver more than the 1^ they currently allow on their retail version.

I think this is a perfect example of matching bend profiles from a feel standpoint. Hideki is clearly pretty hyper specific about his setups with everything tuned down to the last gram, both in terms of swingweight and total weight, and the fact that he constantly tinkers with wood shafts but ultimately comes back to the core AD-DI/S300 combo means there is something there for him. And if we look at bend profiles:

image.png.5f10d4654575bf647864b8d08357dbd0.png

The AD-DI and S300 are an extremely close match, whereas the X100 and X7's mentioned are much stiffer in that lower mid/upper tip area:

Man this guy goes through putters like…well, like I do. Assuming the BB gets any play, of course.

Nate you go through way more putters bro

- Something that continues to go long off the tee in the fairway
- Something that is a fairway finder when needed and long
- Something that high, consistent and helps with par 5’s
-  Something to help with long par3’s and short par 4’s

-  Something metal, lots of them and go the gaps I need
- Something metal, 2x of them and helps me 120y and in
- Putters - limited rotation because I cannot afford misses

Golf is what you make of it.  Play grateful and accepting. We are all lucky to have it.

Rather than expecting lets all try and appreciate instead. 
Treat people the way you want to be treated
