Team Europe Ryder Cup What's In The Bag

Two new putters spotted

Team Europe Ryder Cup What's In The Bag

It might seem like a strange week to change equipment, but historically there have been some big club swaps at the Ryder Cup. Think Phil Mickelson when he first signed to Callaway, and Rory putting a new driver in play at the last Ryder Cup. 

For the Europeans this time around, it's all about putter changes. Obviously Rory McIlroy switched to a Titleist Scotty Cameron recently from his Nike Method, and that went and earned him over $13 million. So it can help.

Trying to capture some new putter magic this week are Lee Westwood and Sergio Garcia. Obviously both are known for switching flat sticks very often, but both have prototypes that we've not seen before.

Lee Westwood has a Ping proto in the bag. We know nothing about it, other than it has a plumber's neck, and from pictures, a forked design, not too dissimilar to an Odyssey 7 or a Scotty Cameron Futura X7.

Sergio is playing a TaylorMade putter, one we've not spotted before, with a large TP logo in the cavity. It's an Anser 2 style head. According to sources at TaylorMade, "Sergio tested a new prototype putter at a recent photoshoot and was immediately drawn to it and wanted to put it into play, saying he felt it gave him a chance to play well at Hazetine so we let him take it."
