By E. Michael Johnson

The company brought the club to Congressional Country Club feeling many players would be looking to add a driving iron-type club for the upcoming British Open at Hoylake.

Here's a look at the rest of the bag of the now six-time PGA Tour winner:


Ball: TaylorMade Tour Preferred X

Driver: TaylorMade SLDR 430 (Matrix Ozik 6m3), 10.5 degrees

3-wood: TaylorMade SLDR, 16.5 degrees

Irons (3): TaylorMade Tour Preferred UDI; (4-PW): TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB 14

Wedges:
TaylorMade Tour Preferred (52 degrees); TaylorMade Tour Preferred ATV Grind (58, 60 degrees)
