What's In The Bag This Week
Adam, Louis, and Lexi, all win with new gear
Words: Daniel Owen
It was a big win at the Honda Classic for Adam Scott. Trusting a full bag of Titleist equipment, Scott was bombing it with his Titleist driver with Mitsubishi Kuro Kage TiNi shaft. This shaft is hot on tour and has been for the past year, and features Titanium Nickel threads woven into the tip to add stability. Scott was also using the brand new unreleased Project X LZ steel shafts in his irons. These are meant to be smoother than traditional Project X shafts.

Lexi Thompson won in Thailand at the Honda LPGA Thailand using a brand new Cobra KING LTD Lexi Stripe, switching the standard orange graphics for Lexi blue. “I’m using the new COBRA KING LTD Driver this week, and it’s worked out pretty well thus far,” Thompson said. “I’ve been working with the COBRA team for a few months, trying to find the right shaft and settings for me. I think we’ve found something that I’m very comfortable with.”
The 22 year old also won putting with her eyes closed. "It just gives me more feel. I’m a feel player, not too technical. It’s just a way for me to feel better over putts and be more comfortable.
“I pick a line, have my caddie, Benji [Thompson], line me up and then just stroke it and trust it.”
