Phil Mickelson has been working with Callaway Golf’s new RAZR Fit driver but is staying with his Callaway FT Tour driver at this week’s Humana Challenge.
“I feel like it’s been really good,” Lefty said the RAZR Fit, “but I didn’t put it in play (at Humana) just because I didn’t want to start the year with any changes. I’ve been hitting it well, I thought.”
Mickelson’s putter to begin this season is a standard length Odyssey blade. He went back and forth last year between a standard length putter and a belly putter.
“I feel really good with the putter,” Mickelson said. “That was the one area that I was concerned with. I spent the whole off season working on that, deciding on the direction I was going to go, with what putter and what have you. And I feel really good with the putter.”
The Odyssey blade, Mickelson said, is similar to a putter he used a kid.
“Just going back to that type of freer motion,” Mickelson said. “And the big difference for me is that for the last couple years I’ve been trying to work on mechanics and fundamentals to get the ball started on line, it’s never allowed me the opportunity to get out into the putt, meaning trying to matchup the speed with the line I’ve chosen. I was so worried about getting it started on line.
“I feel like I’m passed that. I’m not worried about line, now all I’m worried about is getting the speed to match up with the line I’ve chose and so that’s a whole different thought process.”
