Read on about the David Lingmerth WITB, to know the exact clubs he plays.
David Lingmerth WITB
Driver: Ping G30 (10.5 Degrees)
The Ping G30 falls under the game-improving clubs. One of its notable features is the turbulators resting on the crown. Carefully sitting on the crown, are the aerodynamic wings that smoothen the air flowing on the club. Thus enhancing the speed of the club. Accordingly it’s the same brand you’ll find in Aaron Baddeley WITB.
When you have the driver, you can adjust the hosel or fine-tune the trajectory without any problem. Its large sole combined with the internal weighting moves the CG lower and behind the optimum axis.
Such technology increases the MOI and reduces the curving effect on shots. And considering that its face registers a very minimal twist, it transfers maximum energy and thus giving a boost in distance.
3 Wood: Ping G25 (15 Degrees)
It features a slightly smaller head size compared to the G20 wood. However, despite that, it sits nicely at the address and boasts a low profile.
Its thin face has more weight shifted to give low center of gravity and further back. Accordingly, the variable face thickness delivers efficient energy transfer thus resulting in extended distance.
A screw weight sitting on the back helps boost the club’s level of forgiveness and higher launching ability. That helps on shots that strike the lower part of the face, otherwise known as mishits.
Owing to its design, a golfer of any level will most likely find the fairway wood helpful. Besides, it’s long, forgiving, and easy to hit. For penetrating trajectories, it’s the fairway wood to try.
Hybrid: Ping Anser (17 Degrees)
It’s the same hybrid that Harris English WITB contains. Its design offers a blend of forgiveness and control and hence fitting a wide range of golfers. Tapping on 17-4 stainless steel design the club possesses a moderately large head with a non-glaring look. So it’s easy to align and forgives on mishits.
Each of the clubs in the set features weight carefully placed on the sole to optimize the CG. The progressive placement of the center of gravity explains the forward position of the CG in high lofted hybrids.
Its face structure is such that the heel and toe area extends downwards. Accordingly, that widens the lower side of the face where the mishits often register. Therefore it accommodates mishits.
Irons: Ping i25 (4-PW)
The irons are ideal for a golfer looking for accuracy, consistency, and distance. Its longer irons have bigger soles compared to the previous model. So it not only increases its level of forgiveness but also simplifies getting the ball in the air.
Also, the heads are relatively shorter and present very minimal offset. The mid irons, on the other hand, have a head size replicating that of i20 and a very minimal offset.
However, unlike the longer irons, they have the custom tuning port (CTP) placed lower in the club and barely noticeable. Accordingly, it improves the sound and the feel.
Furthermore, the blend of CTP and the stabilizing port produces the trajectory that benefits even a low handicapper. The short clubs also have a slightly cambered sole which grows more prominent in the mid irons. The set is complete with sand, lob, and gap wedges.
Wedges: Ping Glide (50 Degrees Bent to 50.5, 54SS Bent to 55, 60SS)
It taps on a wide Dyla wedge grip technique. That allows the golfer to grip the shaft at varying positions and hence influence the ball distance.
Its head is of 431 stainless steel and has a chrome finish. Accordingly, it glides on damp turf smoothly. Furthermore, its narrow tapered sole improves its glide effortlessly on the sand.
The generous wedge uses the perimeter weighting and hence boosts its MOI. Therefore mishits still result in significant ball distance. It also employs the Gorge grooves more so on higher loft wedges.
Its three sole styles namely thin, standard and wide help alter the bounce. So depending on your ability and the course you are playing you can find the bounce that suits you. Overall the wedges offer increased spin, control, and a dazzling look.
Putter: Ping Cadence TR Ketsch Traditional
Pings Cadence Putter comes in an array of 7 different head shapes. However, each the TR (True Roll) insert technology. So the club has grooves of varying depths that help maintain consistent distance on center strikes.
The groove is deepest at the center but grows narrow as you edge to the toe. Such a pattern helps to maintain accuracy and ball speed consistency.
The cadence putter insert are of two weights; traditional and heavyweight. So depending on your putting tempo you can choose the type that suits you best. For instance, a golfer with slow strokes can benefit from the heavy insert.
Golf Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
As one of the popular balls on Tour, the Titleist Pro V1x offers distance in the long game blended with impressive feel and control in the short game. Its use of reformulated 2.0 ZG dual-core brings about an increase in distance.
However, they use a faster high flex casing layer. The ionomer cover has high resilience and high speed but minimizes spin in the long game.
Besides distance, it also benefits a golfer in control around the green. That’s majorly due to the softest cast urethane elastomer layer that injects extra greenside spin for improved control.
However, unlike the Pro V1 that had the 388 dimples pattern, ProV1x boasts 348 dimples. And so, it delivers a penetrating flight even in a windy environment. So without compromising short game control and feel, ProV1x adds enhanced distance in the long game. It’s therefore no surprise that you’ll find in Cameron Smith WITB.
