Sang-Moon Bae had a couple of key clubs during his win at the season-opening Frys.com Open -- his driver and his putter.
The driver is Callaway's Big Bertha V Series and Bae's win was the sixth for the club worldwide since it was introduced at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August. The 9-degree club is 45 inches in length with the OptiFit hosel set to minus 1 degree of loft with a neutral directional setting. The shaft is Graphite Design's MJ7 x-flex.
The putter, however, is truly intriguing. Bae put the Odyssey Damascus Grand in play to start the year after picking it up in Japan during his off-season. The 345-gram club is made from Damascus steel, which is the same type of steel used to make samurai swords. The limited edition putter -- only 350 were produced and were available only in Japan -- features a striped pattern head.
