Driver: TaylorMade R1 (10)
Structurally the TaylorMade R1 is longer and highly forgiving compared to the R11s. That’s majorly due to the 460cc head that possess a broad and deep face. Accordingly, that makes it very forgiving and thus fits mid to high handicappers.
Its crown that blends thick and thin parts helps improve its aerodynamics. The TaylorMade R1 is highly adjustable. It offers you 12 lofts and seven face angles to select.
It’s therefore easy to find the right loft and face angle combination that gives the optimum distance. Even though it’s highly adjustable, the club is still straightforward to use.
Though it has such adjustability, it’s simple to use. Moreover, it features a combination of colors that makes up for easy alignment.
Fairway Wood: Mizuno MP650 (15)
Its blend of compact head and open face makes it ideal for better golfers. On the other hand, the extra weight on the toe helps deliver straight ball or slight fade in ball flight. Furthermore, its shape boosts control on a trajectory, accuracy, and the ability to stop the ball quickly on the green.
Looking at its head, it’s generous yet not to the point of being oversize. Accordingly, as a fairway wood, it injects a high level of forgiveness.
The fairway wood employs a five-piece Titanium design and a multi-thickness face cup. Accordingly, it helps in weight savings, adjusting of the center of gravity and MOI of the wood. The combination results in optimum ball speed and distance.
At the same time, its use of harmonic impact technology, HIT, helps the club deliver solid and powerful sound.
Hybrid: Mizuno JPX 825 Pro (19)
The hybrids present a generous head, round and pointy shape at the back. That’s because it has more weight concentrated low and shifted at the back of the head. Its slick and black finish means it produces no irritating glaring finish.
When making a swing at the ball, it still allows you to get a correct view of the ball and face. Therefore it inspires confidence to pull through with the shot.
When you make a hit, the sound and feel the hybrid generates is impressive. Moreover, it gives an outstanding midflight ball trajectory.
Irons: Mizuno JPX 825 Pro (4-PW)
In contrast to Ryan Moore WITB that has Mizuno MP Irons, Lewis prefers Mizuno JPX 825 Pro. The Irons gives a blend of forgiveness, playability, and feel. It uses the Grain flow forged 1025 mild carbon steel. Accordingly, the club generates an extra soft, solid but consistent feel.
Besides, the leading edge and the trailing edge have a design that resists digging into the ground. As a result, it glides smoothly over the turf and you hit the sweet spot effortlessly.
The gorged out cavity produces a vast weighted area around the toe. Apart from easy squaring, slight off-center shots still produce ample distance.
Wedges: Mizuno MP T-11 (52, 56, 60)
In a short game, the feel, control, and spin matter greatly. That’s why the Mizuno MP T-11 wedge uses the patented grain flow forged mild carbon steel and combines it with Tour style head and sole. That gives it the unparalleled precision in a short game.
Also, the 360 degrees grind coupled to a thin top line delivers optimum versatility and control when making shots. However, the CNC milled groove blended to the quad cut groove technology gives the wedge high spin control. By extension, that means high ball stopping ability in diverse playing conditions.
Putter: TaylorMade Ghost TM 100
Whereas Graeme Mcdowell WITB stocks Odyssey White Hot #7, Lewis prefers Taylormade Ghost. The putter offers you the square head design that makes it easy to square. Besides, the aiming lines further make up for easy aiming. But besides the striking appearance, it gives an enhanced roll and accuracy in shots.
Ball: Titleist ProV1x
Titleist ProV1x is the ball played widespread on Tour level. No wonder can find it among the clubs in Ian Poulter WITB. At the heart of the ball, is the reformulated high-velocity dual core boasting a softcover. The reformulated core accounts for the high distance performance of the ball.
At the same time, it employs the new tetrahedral dimple design that enhances its aerodynamics. The effect is the consistency of flight. At the same time, it uses a soft cast urethane cover. That gives the ProV1x ball improved short game control.
Owing to its consistency in giving long-distance, high trajectory, and drop and stop greenside control, many Tour professionals find it very useful.
Among the contributing factors to Stacy Lewis’s outstanding success in golf is her choice of clubs. She carefully combs through the Mizuno and Taylormade clubs and brings you, models, you can count on.
