What driver shaft is Tiger using in this pic from 2005?


Recommended Posts

So in this pic from the first round of the 2005 Wachovia Championship, Tiger was in the middle of his all-time best driving round off the tee in terms of strokes gained since they started tracking in 2004. I know he was using Mitsubishi at this point in his career but it is hard to ascertain which one it is in this picture, it's the only one I could find from that specific round. Most WITB archives of his bag in 2005 just says Mitsubishi Diamana 83TX, no mention of White or Blue.

If I remember correctly, it was discussed at length around that time, in the early days of close-up photos being a thing on internet forums, and was supposedly a Japan version of the Diamana with a distinctive graphic.

This is 100% the answer. I believe this shaft either was or became the original Diamana Blueboard with the 63, 73, 83, 93, 103 weight names. If you look closely, he used to wrap lead tape around the shaft where the grip ends.

I was part of that conversation back then and yes Mat, you are 100% correct mate. 🍻

The answer to better golf is work your butt off and learn how to hit it better, farther, and make more putts.
