Just seen a close up of the 8 iron D.A. Used on the 16th

It was a Ping I5 iron

And he is a taylormade guy.
That's crazy

Played them at Pebble when he won last year. Obviously has been playing them for some time now.

And Ping G10 hybrid on 18th hole.

Must be hitting the driver only?

It really isn't that uncommon on Tour for players to sign contracts that only require them to use the company's staff bag and play their driver. James Hahn does the same thing with Callaway. If you ask me, the player gets the best of both worlds as he brings in some decent endorsement money while still getting to play the sticks with which he is comfortable.

At the very end of the coverage, it showed a Slo-mo swing with him and it was either an Anser or I20 8 iron. Wasn't an I5. Saw him hit a pitch shot that looked like the I5s though.

He's playing a weird mix bag then. I know I saw a i5 5 iron during the round....or maybe yesterday's highlights.

Not really. As stated, this is pretty common practice. Jim Furyk does driver and ball only with Callaway too.

It's a full i5 iron set. I was out there today and thought I saw the same thing. Made it a point to get another closer look. I5's, g10 hybrid, ping wedges.

D.A. played Pings for years...I am not sure why he and a few others switched to a different bag - $ I guess. Many of them keep using the Ping irons. Tim Herron used G25's this week... Many pro's used (and still do) the G15, which is considered the best G series iron so far (G25 has not been out long enough to see where it will settle in). I think it is wise to not have to play all of one brand of clubs... I love Ping: have used the irons for 30+ years...Like the driver as well. Glad that I don't have to use the putter or fairways... Just me!

I thought surely there would be restrictions that a signed Tour player isn't allowed to use other manufacturers' clubs, otherwise why sign up a player as he is free to choose whatever he wants to play with and doesn't advertise for his signed manufacturer :dntknw:

Read my post above. A lot of guys' contracts only stipulate that they carry the company's bag and driver.

I wonder when he will get good enough to switch to something forged? ;)
