WITB Scottie Scheffler - Waste Management Open Winner
Watching Scottie Scheffler win his first tournament at the Waste Management Open was quite entertaining. With all of the hype surrounding this event and extreme support from the fans, Scheffler pulled this off at just the right time. If you think you are just a new driver or wedge away from a win at the next Waste Management Open, you may be interested in what Scheffler is carrying in his bag. Let’s take a look at the club Scheffler is currently using; some f these club choices may come as a surprise to you.
The driver is the TaylorMade Stealth Plus set at 8 degrees. This will be an increasingly popular choice for golfers on the PGA Tour this year. With the distance and forgiveness that the Stealth has to offer, you will find that the club is going to continue to gain exposure on the tour. The shaft in the TaylorMade Stealth Plus is the Fujikura Ventus Black 7 X. Scheffler has a lot of swing speed, and this is an excellent overall choice.
Fairway Woods and Hybrids
Scheffler has one of the most unique 3 wood choices on tour. He carries a Nike VR Pro Limited set at 13.5 degrees with a Fujikura Atmos Black Tour Spec 8X. In addition, he has a three-iron utility club may by Srixon. This is a Srixon Z U85 with a Nippon Modus 3 Hybrid Tour X shaft in it.
The irons are a bit of a mixed bag as well, with a Srixon ZX7 in the 4 iron and then a switch to TaylorMade to round out the set. The TaylorMade P7TW is featured in the 5-W. All of the irons have the same Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.
One of the most exciting things about this set of golf clubs is how much variation there is across different brands. You can see that Scheffler is currently a player that is using equipment that works for him. Whatever he can find that makes sense for his game is what he plays with.
It will be interesting to see if this lasts after his most recent tour victory.
Scheffler carries three wedges in addition to his pitching wedge. All three of these wedges are the same Vokey SM8 style. They all feature the True Temper S400 shafts. His current lofts are 50,56, and 60.
The Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tour type GSS Prototype is the putter of choice for Scheffler. At the Waste Management Open, he had complete confidence in this club and was able to use it well under some serious pressure.
Most of the equipment that Scottie Scheffler uses are clubs that any golfer can play with. The key is to customize the shaft and the lie angle of the club to work for your golf game. Scheffler has some very high swing speed and requires tour level golf shafts. However, there will be plenty of average golfers this year, putting a Stealth driver in the bag and reaping the benefits this club has to offer.
