Brooke Henderson WITB: The Amundi Evian Champion 2022

 A huge congratulations to Brooke Henderson on her second Major win and first at the Evian Championship. 

What looked to be a steady run for the win on Saturday with a 5 shot lead at the midway point soon became a battle with plenty of drama on Sunday.

A nervy start on Sunday included a first hole bogey, soon followed by a four putt double bogey on 6. She soon found herself swamped by names such as Nelly Korda, Charlie Hull and Lydia Ko.

Brooke required nerves of steel and a solid mental game headed into the back 9 to find a way back to the top.

Birdies at 14 and 15 drew her level with Sophia Schubert, before holing a 10 footer on 18 for her first Major win since 2016.

An exciting Sunday, full of drama, showcasing a fantastic standard of golf for the women’s game. 

Let’s take a look at the equipment Brooke used to secure the Evian Championship with this weeks, What’s In The Bag!

Stamping The Way Forward To Better Wedge Play

Having great wedges that are custom fit to your needs in terms of loft, length, shaft, bounce, grind and grip is one thing. Being able to personalize your wedges to make them bespoke and stand out in the bag is certainly another.

Our Workshop is always looking for ways to give that extra little colour and spice to your new clubs.

The team have invested in a new stamping and paint set which means that we are able to put 4 different styles of stamping onto a new wedge, or even add to your current wedges. It will take 24 hours from design to completion and our workshop team will be on hand to guide you through the design process.

This funky new service costs £19.99 per wedge or £50 for 3 wedges, can be ordered online or in store. 

The 4 main styles that we are offering are

Straight – this can be any word in a straight line of the back of the head

Dancing – this means the letter move around at slight angles to give the illusion the words are dancing across your wedge

Two Lines – this allows to two lines of straight text, ideal for children’s names for example

Snowdrop – 2 letters for example initials, 10 times random all over the back of the wedge.

WELCOME TO THE CARBONWOOD AGE

For the last 20 years, Titanium was all the rage. But we have always known that every material has a limit.

So, we started pushing the boundaries and now we’re leaving the old race behind to begin a completely new one. A race that drives beyond the here and now to raise the bar for what’s possible.

After 20 years in the making, the limits of titanium have been broken. Introducing Stealth™ drivers with 60X Carbon Twist Face.

Welcome to the Carbonwood Age.

  • 60X CARBON TWIST FACE

    Twenty years of development marks the end of the titanium era. The all new 60X Carbon Twist Face is 40% lighter than an equivalent titanium face, while also being 11% larger than SIM2 and SIM2 Max drivers and nearly 20% larger than the 2020 SIM driver. Sixty layers of carbon fiber have been strategically designed to optimize energy transfer to deliver fast ball speeds over a large area, resulting in optimal distance and forgiveness.

  • NANOTEXTURE COVER

    The 60X Carbon Twist Face is encased by a polyurethane cover, featuring a revolutionary new nanotexture technology. The nanotexture cover is used to fine tune launch and spin to optimize total distance regardless of playing conditions.

  • HIGH MOI DESIGN

    The weight savings of the 60x Carbon Twist Face has allowed more weight to be positioned low and deep in the head. Additional weight savings come from the removal of the Sliding Weight Track. Compared to Stealth Plus+, this model offers 15% greater MOI.

  • ASYMMETRIC INERTIA GENERATOR

    The Inertia Generator remains the foundational source of refined aerodynamic properties. The result is a slippery-fast head shape that aids in swing speed generation on the downswing for golfers at every level. It provides the added benefit of enhanced forgiveness vs. Stealth Plus+ with extra weight positioned low and back.

  • THRU-SLOT SPEED POCKET

    Our most flexible Speed Pocket™ design engineered to maximize ball speeds and produce additional forgiveness on low face strikes.

Scottie Scheffler’s 2022 Masters Winning WITB

A week on from a memorable Masters, we look at Scottie Scheffler’s 2022 Masters Winning WITB. A week of many talking points has passed since Scottie Scheffler donned the Green Jacket for his first time, and on current form, you would suggest it’s the first of many!

What was your favourite moment of the weekend? There are so many to choose from including the return of Tiger Woods! Another come back, only this time he didn’t need a victory to capture the hearts of his fans. To see him just playing again after a horrible accident last year left us wondering if we’d ever see the Sunday red shirt again! Perhaps you enjoyed the incredible display from Rory on Sunday? It has got us excited about a potential return to form! However, whatever your favourite moment was, one man stole the show, with what looked like an effortless display of golf all weekend long. You must be good if you can 4 putt the last to claim your first Major win. So with that in mind, let’s look at what equipment helped Scottie to his 4th win in only 6 starts in 2022.

Whats In The Bag

Driver: TaylorMade Stealth Plus (8 degrees @7.5)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 7 X

Hitting 43 / 56 fairways over 4 days is a must around Augusta. Everyone knows Augusta for the greens, but positioning yourself on the green starts by having the right shot in… preferably off the fairway!

3-wood: TaylorMade Stealth Plus (16.5 degrees @15)
Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Black 8 X

Utility: Srixon Z U85 (3)
Shaft: Nippon Pro Modus3 Hybrid Tour X

Irons: Srixon ZU85 (4), TaylorMade P7TW (5-PW)
Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100

49 / 72 greens hit over the 4 days, which was 11% higher than the field average!

Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 (50-12F, 56-14F, 60-06K)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Putter: Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tour type GSS Prototype

Putting average of 1.53 putts per hole, which was 5th on the list of players.

Based on the weekend stats, Scottie was the most steady players across the board. He found the least amount of trouble and looked in control of his game, mindset and clubs all weekend.

So, that’s another win for Scottie and another win for the TaylorMade Stealth driver this season. If you are looking for equipment that you can rely on under pressure, then we have the perfect solution for you. FREE CUSTOM FITTING
