Mickelson putting two Callaway drivers in his bag at Augusta

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.
