Much of the pre-Masters equipment chatter centered around Phil Mickelson’s Phrankenwood driver, but Adam Scott used a new driver at Augusta, too, and with much better success. The Aussie won his first green jacket yesterday with a
Titleist 913D driver. Scott switched from the Titleist 910D3 driver and all of his specifications (9.5 degrees, Graphite Design Tour AD DI-8 X-flex shaft) remained the same. Scott also stayed with an A-1 (neutral) SureFit Tour Hosel setting and a 44.75-inch shaft.
Titleist parent the Acushnet Company said Scott worked with Titleist Tour Representative Chris Tuten on the Wednesday of the Tampa Bay Championship to dial in a precision fit, but did not put the 913D3 driver into play in Tampa.
Scott also put a refined Scotty Cameron by Titleist Futura X prototype putter in his Masters bag. He has been working with Cameron since this past December on the new long putter that Acushnet said provides the high MOI (Moment of
Inertia) and path that Scott was seeking.
The putter, according to Acushnet, is made out of aluminum and includes a balance bar and four tungsten weights that are positioned under four adjustable stainless steel weights in the far four corners of the putter for maximum MOI. The putter is 49 inches long and has three degrees of loft.
In Scott’s bag: 2013 Titleist Pro V1 golf ball; Titleist 913D3 driver; Titleist 910Fd (15 degrees) fairway metal; Titleist
712U (2) and MB (3-9) irons with KBS Tour steel shafts; Titleist Vokey Design SM4 pitching (48 degrees), Spin Milled sand (54) and SM4 TVD lob (60) wedges with KBS Tour shafts; and Scotty Cameron by Titleist Futura X prototype putter.
