When you tie the tournament record of 18-under-par 270 it is almost impossible to zero in on a single piece of equipment as the one that factored most. Certainly Spieth's Titleist Pro V1x golf balls seemed to listen to his nearly every command. Then there was the Scotty Cameron by Titleist SC-009 prototype putter—a model Spieth has used since he was 15 years old because Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy used the same model—that holed all those birdie attempts.
But the one piece of equipment that might have been the true difference maker was Spieth's Titleist Vokey SM5 wedges. After all, if not for the crazy-good pitch shot on the 18th hole Saturday that salvaged an unlikely par, Spieth may have gone to bed Saturday in a different frame of mind. Or how about the pitch shot on No. 11 Sunday when a bogey might have sent the 21-year-old to the treacherous 12th with a shrunken lead.
Then again, maybe the equipment star of the Masters was just the entire bag, filled with 14 Titleist clubs.
