Masters favorite Phil Mickelson will again carry two drivers at Augusta National. Lefty has been using the new Callaway RAZR Hawk driver.
“It’s going to be warm, I won’t need a 3-iron or a hybrid, so the longest iron I’ll have is a 4-iron,’’ Mickelson said. “But really, into the par 5s, I won’t need anything more than a 4-iron on the par 3s. If it’s cold, I’ll need a 3-iron like on hole 4 but the forecast is to be pretty hot so I’ll put in a second driver that will allow me to carry the bunkers on 2 and 8.
“They both draw and fade the same. That’s not the purpose of it. I have an inch longer shaft and different loft. It just goes about 15, 20 yards farther.’’
Mickelson, who won last week’s Shell Houston Open with a RAZR Hawk, will have a 45-inch model with 7.5 degrees of loft and a 46-inch, 5.9 degree that has a higher center of gravity to generate a higher ball flight.
