It’s an important tournament for PGA Tour players the world over, with more than 13 million people tuning in to watch on TV!
The final round at Augusta National Golf Club was held on Sunday 10th April and saw Scottie Scheffler trying to fend off the competition to win the first major championship of his young career, and finish ahead of Rory McIlroy.
After producing some excellent golf over the four days, and being the tournament’s leader for almost three days on the bounce, Scheffler went on to win the competition by three shots – getting his fourth win in his last six starts on the PGA Tour.
Whilst we’re all delighted the American was rewarded with the famous green jacket and $2.7 million prize money, you’re probably wondering what clubs were in the winner’s bag this year, right?
Here the team at Clarkes’ Golf Centre take a closer look at the clubs Scottie Scheffler played with in the 2022 Masters Tournament, and how you can get your hands on the same quality equipment.
What did the winner have in his bag at the 2022 Masters?
Scottie Scheffler had a selection of golf clubs in his bag, including a combination of drivers, fairway woods, irons, wedges and putters.
· TaylorMade Stealth Plus+ driver
Scottie’s driver of choice was the TaylorMade Stealth Plus+, which is the longest and most forgiving driver currently on the market.
Available in a choice of lofts (e.g. 8 degrees, 9 degrees and 10.5 degrees), the Texan golfer played with an 8 degree driver with a custom Fujikura Ventus Black 7X shaft, instead of the standard Mitsubishi Kai’li White 60 shaft.
· TaylorMade Stealth Fairway Wood
The Masters winner chose a 3-wood – the TaylorMade Stealth fairway wood with a 16.5 degree loft, to be precise.
Something that makes this club special is the tour-proven Speed Pocket, which is designed especially for extra forgiveness and maximum ball speeds. Twist Face® technology uses corrective face angles to produce straighter shots – both from the fairway and off the tee.
· Srixon ZU85
Scheffler had a couple of irons stowed in his bag for the tournament, including the Srixon ZU85 (3 and 4).
Unlike most solid-body long irons, the ZU85 utility iron from Srixon easily launches high with plenty of distance whilst controlling trajectory and shape shot accuracy. As a club for golfers who demand control and forgiveness, this certainly helped Scheffler to take the top spot.
Whilst the Srixon ZU85 irons are not available to purchase from Clarkes’ Golf Centre, we provide a variety of Srixon irons, including the ZX irons, which offer beauty and power in equal measure.
· TaylorMade P7TW
The TaylorMade P7TW irons are meticulously shaped to meet Tiger Woods’ discerning eye – offering a longer blade length, thinner topline and progressive face height.
Of course, Tiger Woods plays with his own irons, but the P7TW irons have also been carried by some of the top Tour players – including the likes of the 2022 Masters winner, Scottie Scheffler, as well as Tommy Fleetwood, Lucas Herbert and Martin Kaymer.
We don’t have the P7TW models in stock. However, we supply numerous other TaylorMade irons, offering exceptional performance at some of the most competitive prices around!
· Titleist Vokey SM8 Wedges
Scheffler used the 50 and 56 degree Titleist Vokey SM8 wedges in the Masters.
Thanks to the use of high-density tungsten, these clubs have a centre of gravity that’s positioned forward from the face. This produces a more consistent strike and helps you to hit the target more frequently.
You could argue that this level of distance control, shot versatility and spin helped Scheffler to play a steady game and win the tournament!
· Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS Prototype
Masters winners from previous years had a trusty putter in their golf bag, ready to tap the ball into the hole. Scottie Scheffler was no exception.
He chose the Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS Prototype, a “Tour only” variation of the classic Newport 2 head shape with a few more refined touches and elements.
Solid, well-balanced and easy to control through the swing, it’s clear to see why the Masters winner opted for this Scotty Cameron putter.
· Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls
Alongside a wide range of golf clubs, Scheffler also had Titleist Pro V1 golf balls in his bag, which are often described as the #1 golf ball on Tour.
The Pro V1 balls are renowned for providing longer distances, low spin, penetrating flight and so much more, which explains why they find themselves in the golf bags of so many top-class golfers and amateurs alike.
