Winner's bag: What Patrick Reed used to win the Humana Challenge

By E. Michael Johnson

Ball: Callaway Speed Regime 3
Driver: Callaway Big Bertha Alpha Driver (Fujikura Fuel 85x), 9 degrees
3-wood: Callaway Big Bertha, 16 degrees
Irons (3-4): Callaway X Forged; (5-PW): Callaway RAZR X MB
Wedges: Calalway Mack Daddy 2 (50, 56, 60) degrees
Putter: Odyssey Metal-X Milled #6 Putter


Reed's driver says 9 degrees on the sole plate but has 9.5 degrees of actual loft. The shaft is relatively short at 44.25 inches (tour average is approximately an inch longer). The adjustable gravity core has the most weight in the high position to reduce spin. The Big Bertha fairway wood was in the bag for the first time.
