Ryan Palmer WITB
Driver: TaylorMade M6 (10.5 at 9 Degrees) with an Accra TourZ RPG 472 M5 Shaft
The driver picks on an angled face design that corrects shots that fall low on the face to produce impressive speed. Besides, it uses resins on the lower side of the face to stiffen slightly and thus boost speed and distance performance.
Apart from the speed injected twist face, the driver boasts an inertia generator, therefore contributing to the improved aerodynamics of the sole. The sleek sole design and low center of gravity positioned back of the face give it a low spin and improved forgiveness.
Moreover, by composition, the M6 has high carbon content and hence better weight distribution. And when you factor in the hummer head 2 slot, you get the driver that’s promising in speed and distance performance.
3-Wood: TaylorMade M2HL (15.5 Degrees) with an Aldila NV 75 TX Shaft
It’s the wood that outshines in forgiveness and distance performance. For that reason, it boasts a shallow face design, broad sweet spot, and thus highly forgiving. It also makes use of adjustable weight yet being very easy to hit.
Also, it boasts a carbon composite crown and therefore making it lightweight. Its lightness allows the manufacture to move more weight closer to the impact zone. Accordingly, that awards the wood better spin and launch.
When you make a hit, the club’s internal acoustic and fluted hosel feature help check on the pitch, vibration, and thus resulting in exceptional feedback.
5-wood: TaylorMade SIM Max (19 degrees) with Accra Axiv XE80 X Shaft
The TaylorMade SIM Max wood relies on the multi-material design to deliver a higher launch and flight than its predecessor, M6. Although its head is of titanium, the crown is of carbon fiber.
Its V steel-shaped sole awards it better turf interaction. So it hence helps improve club and ball speed. As a Taylormade club, it taps on the speed pocket and the twist face technology.
Further, the wood picks on the sturdy and flexible C300 steel. Accordingly, it produces an explosive speed and distance. It’s the wood that’s adapted to high launch, long distance yet remains playable. Even Padraig Harrington WITB stocks Taylormade SIM2Max woods
Srixon Z 585 (4)
The Srixon Z 585 iron, makes use of the speed groove channel to enhance the face flex and accordingly improve the speed and distance performance. On the other hand, the Tour V.T. sole design injects consistency in ball strike.
At the same time, the V.T. sole further provides for smooth interaction with the turf. In the set, the long irons feature extra-wide soles, thus guaranteeing forgiveness.
Its body is of forged 1020 carbon steel. And so, in every impact, it minimize vibrations and hence boost the feel at the same time.
Srixon Z 785 (5-PW) with KBS Tour 130X Shafts
A compact shape and a blade-like profile define the Srixon Z 785 irons. The iron set also features improved weight such that the iron offers better shot shaping and leading versatility.
For that reason, it makes use of the Tour V.T. sole and hence guarantees smooth turf interaction. Besides, it’s thus useful for executing a wide variety of shots.
Further, the Srixon Z 785 irons feature a tour cavity design. Thus it concentrates more mass behind the face’s impact zone. The lump of mass makes the iron more versatile and awards it power in shaping shots.
Also, the Srixon Z 785 body is of soft 1020 carbon steel and so it delivers a remarkable feel.
Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 (50-08F, 56-10S, 60-04L) all with KBS Tour 130X Shafts
Just like in Charley Hoffman WITB, Ryan Palmer also stocks the Titleist Vokey Design SM8 wedge in his bag. The wedge is available in 4 different finishes. Contrary to the SM7, the SM8 wedge has its center of gravity shifted to the front.
To achieve that, the manufacturer alters the hosel length and introduces a tungsten weight in the toe. So the forward-placed center of gravity and high moments of inertia means better accuracy and squaring. The wedge best delivers accuracy and consistency in every shot.
Putter: Odyssey White Hot Rossie II with a Lamkin FlatCat Grip
Callaway picks on Tour-proven head shape and insert, improves it, and thus lands a putter with better sound and feel. Besides improving on existing head shapes, the manufacture also introduces new mallet-designed head shapes with promising performance.
Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
Similar to Lydia Ko WITB, Ryan palmer keeps the Titleist Pro V1x in his golf bag. The ball features a multilayer design and improved aerodynamics. So it promises you improved speed and flight consistency, even in windy conditions. You’ll also like the short game control and durability.
When considering the bag of experienced golfers such as Bernhard Langer WITB, Ryan Palmer WITB, also count in the list. Its blend of clubs from Taylormade, Srixon, and Callaway has helped him earn several victories. That gives you many reasons to trust any of the clubs he stocks in his bag.
