Hideki Matsuyama using a SuperStroke putter grip on his driver (as a training aid) + shaft testing – 2023 WGC Dell Technologies Match Play


Recommended Posts

I get that there’s subtle differences in every shaft, but can he honestly expect 1 of the 15 DI’s that he has there to be THAT much better?

would love to know the O/U on how many Graphite Design Tour AD DI shafts he's gone through throughout the course of his entire career. I don't even know where to set the line... 300?

Don’t a few people use extra thick grips on all their clubs on tour. 

 

That’s wild to use a super stroke, if someone had one I knew, I’d try it out 😂

Its against the rules of golf to use a putter grip on a club other than a putter. But its good for face awareness and hand placement practice. I have a flat cat putter grip on an extra 7 iron, and its really hard to hit straight...

He was testing the UB and 1K TPB but has gone back to the DI it seems.

I’m guessing that the shafts are tipped differently at different weights. 

Honestly it might not. They might be all the best of the best they could find and then bring him apile every week so he can literally figure it out.  He seems that mental.  

- 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

There is a GD tour van, and then there is Hideki’s GD tour van! 😆 

Hey, I had a thought. Throw a SS grip on one of those thirty five DI driver shafts.. 

He's probably known as "that guy" among the staff that work the GD tour van, lol.  Probably has storage spaces full of DI's and Scottie Cameron putters among other things..........I'm sure it drives his wife crazy.  Very envious here, hehe.

Given how picky he is about feel and specific his tipping specs are (down to 1/4") I would not be surprised at all if he rolls around with 3-4 versions of each gamer shaft with tipping in 1/4" or 1/2" increments that swaps around depending on the day. There is no way that someone as picky as him would also choose a shaft that he had to sift through 12 of every tournament I don't think, hah.
