DRIVER: Ping G (10.5 Degrees), with Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana D+ 80TX Shaft

The driver employs two significant technologies that help to better its performance. That includes the Dragonfly and Vortec. Considering its face is not completely rounded, it presents very few alignment difficulties.

When you make a swing, it feels light and stable. And with its moments of inertia on the top-bottom higher than that of the previous driver, Ping G consequently makes the ball stay in the air for an extended period. Hence that improves the driver’s ability to drive the ball a long distance.

Its design and structure offer an increase in the speed of the club’s head and level of forgiveness. The aerodynamic feature thus plays an integral role.

Fairway Wood

Ping G (14.5 Degrees)

The fairway wood features a sharp and low leading edge. That helps it to glide under the ball and allow more strikes from the center. In effect, it launches the ball higher and also eases playing from tight lies.

Besides, the club’s face boasts carpenter 455 steel. The material, although light and thin, exhibits high strength. Moreover, the crown is likewise thin thus, allowing the fairway wood to achieve a low center of gravity.

Pair that to the air resistance reducing Turbulators, and you have the club that excels in speed and distance performance. Although it features an adjustable hosel, it’s carefully hidden hence not distracting.

Tour Edge Exotics EX9 (18 degrees), with Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana D+ 90TX Shaft

It thrives on the slipstream design that integrates well to the body and thus gives it high performance on the turf. The reduced drag on the turf positions it for an explosive speed.

The fairway wood uses the power grid technology that places wore mass close to the lower quota of the sole. Therefore boosting higher launch.

Furthermore, it employs laser bonding technology in merging the steel face cup and the body. And so it exhibits tight tolerance and thus delivers outstanding performance.

Also, it combines the sloped crown structure and an interchangeable heel weight system. Therefore it allows you to influence the draw of the club. But if you need to increase the swing weight of the fairway woods, then additional weights are available.

Irons: Adams MB2 (4-PW), with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue Shafts

Owing to their design in general the Adams MB2 irons offer the workability, trajectory, and appearance that every experienced golfer dreams of. For that purpose, you also find the irons in the Ryan Moore WITB. But to benefit from the irons, your aim of the sweet spot has to be consistent.

The irons use some of the highest groove volume and raw finish on the face to enhance the feel. Furthermore, the clubs exhibit a careful arrangement of brass weights, forged from 8620 carbon steel and thus, lowers the center of gravity of the club.

Wedges

Titleist Vokey Design TVD (52, 56 Degrees)

Besides its appealing look, the Titleist Vokey Design TVD is easy to hit and registers an incredible feel. Its mix of the graphite finish and the raw head delivers a responsive feel following an impact with the ball.

Its unique sole design inspires confidence when playing in sand traps. For instance, the TVD-K boasts a wide and cambered sole design. Accordingly, it delivers in bunker shots while also being versatile for several playing conditions. The sole instead of digging into the ground slides smoothly on the turf.

The club features the shallow heel and high toe. That gives it the classic teardrop shape. However, the clubs exist in a variety of sole and bounce configurations. So it fits different swings, shots, and course environments.

Also, it uses the 8620 mild carbon steel, oil can, and tour chrome finish. Such a combination enables the wedge to deliver a soft and solid feel.

Putter: Odyssey Works #7

When you browse several putters, you’ll realize that the Odyssey Works #7 series presents the classic shape. The weighted alignments help boost its moments of inertia and stability too.

Besides, the use of the micro hinge face inserts positions it to deliver a better roll.   Furthermore, its blend of short slant neck and slight hanging of the toe adapts it to arcing putting strokes.

Ball: Titleist Pro V1x

Unlike Collin Morikawa WITB, Aaron Baddeley WITB stocks Titleist Pro V1x. The ball employs the 2.0 ZG Process dual-core to increase its distance performance.

It also taps on the ionomer that has high resilience and speed abilities. Accordingly, it reduces the long game spin hence enhancing speed.

Its spherically-tiled tetrahedral dimple structure that presents the 388 dimple layout optimizes it for higher heights and longer distances.

Besides enhanced speed, the Pro V1x ball uses a soft cover design. Accordingly, that enhances the greenside spin so making the ball ideal for short game control.

Conclusion 

Aaron Baddeley uses the blend of the above clubs to steer his career to greater heights. That means if you lay the correct foundation today, nothing can keep you from being the next professional.

And part of that investment is owning the right clubs that blend with your game type. So if you need to replace any of the clubs in your bag, the posts give you plenty of choices to consider.
