Justin Rose's Olympics What's In The Bag!!!
+ PXG get a win on the PGA Tour
Words: Daniel Owen
#RoseGold. How we like our watches, and now our golfers after Justin Rose's Olympic performance. He played brilliantly and he bought into the whole Olympic experience, so in that respect there probably couldn't have been a better winner of the Olympic Gold Medal.
Rose put a TaylorMade PSi Tour three iron in the bag for the week, preferring a lower flight than the five wood he normally plays. In his TaylorMade M2 driver, Rose is playing a prototype Mitusbishi Rayon Tensei CK White shaft. If previous Mitsubishi shafts are anything to go by, the Tensei White will be low launch and low spin.

Elsewhere Ryan Moore brought home PXG's second PGA Tour victory. We wrote recently about PXG possibly being Rory McIlroy's next home, and Moore showed just how effective the irons and driver can be. It would have been a great win for PXG as Moore was the first PGA Tour player they signed.
