Winner's Bag: Jason Day at the WGC-Dell Match Play

In match play everything needs to be working in order to be the one standing at the end, but the clubs that must to be on are the irons and wedges. At Austin C.C. that was true for Jason Day, who used a TaylorMade RSi 2 2-iron, skipped the 3-iron then had the company’s RSi TP 4-iron through pitching wedge. Day’s pitching wedge is 47 degrees but is bent three degrees strong, because Day also carries a TaylorMade Tour Preferred EF Tour Grind 47-degree wedge as his gap wedge. By bending the pitching wedge strong, Day is able to maintain his yardage gaps. Day’s other wedges also were working, including the TaylorMade Tour Preferred EF ATV Grind he used for the clinching approach shot from 107 yards on the 14th hole of the final match.
