Winner's bag: What Jordan Spieth used to win the Australian Open

November 30, 2014

Jordan Spieth started November by putting a Titleist's new 915D2 driver and prototype Pro V1x ball in play at the WGC-HSBC Champions and finished the month by winning the Australian Open with the driver/ball combination. Although the ball likely won't be formally introduced until late January, the driver debuted at retail Nov. 14. Different from previous Titleist drivers is the "Active Recoil Channel" -- a deep groove toward the front of the sole of the club that alters the spin-to-launch ratio of the club as well as boosts ball speed. The D2 ($450) model is 460cc and has a face insert that is thinner in the heel and toe to assist off-center hits.
