PostSubject: Dustin Johnson's Bag at Northern Trust Open   Thu Feb 13, 2014 2:19 pm

Saw this and thought I'd share - very cool to see that DJ is still using old-school R9 3wood and 5wood in his bag... sticking with what works! Though I am surprised that he didn't put in the SLDR fairway woods into his bag.... those clubs are amazing. Personally, the more compact clubhead looks great and it is a lot more forgiving than it looks - give it a try if you get the chance!

anyways, it's a really nice looking bag! he's playing with the new Tour Preferred MC irons as well and ATV wedges (maybe he'll switch to Tour Preferred wedges later in the year?). I think he's also using a Scotty Cameron putter

the R9 on the right appears to be a hybrid.

I don't think there is a R9 hybrid. at least Google didn't show.

maybe it the left is a 3Wood while the right is a 5 fairway wood cos their crown shape is different.

don't think he's using any hybrids.

the two R9 clubs are actually a 3-wood and a 5-wood with Tour Preferred MB irons from 3-PW

DJ is on fire, two second place finishes in two weeks...... hopefully he gets a W soon.... and a Major championship this year! Here are the official specs of What's In His Bag:


Driver: TaylorMade SLDR (10.5 Degrees)
Shaft: Fujikura Fuel 2.0 X-Flex

3 Wood: TaylorMade R9 (15.5 Degrees)
Shaft: Aldila RIP Alpha 80 X-Stiff

5 Wood: TaylorMade R9 (19 Degrees)
Shaft: Aldila RIP Alpha 90 X-Stiff

Irons: TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB Forged (3-PW)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue

Wedges: TaylorMade TP xFT (54 and 60 Degrees)
Shafts: KBS (Black Nickel)Putter: Scotty Cameron for Titleist Newport 2 Prototype

Ball: TaylorMade Tour Preferred X
http://www.eighteenunderpar.com/tour-preferred-golf-balls-taylormade/

Just want to note that we got to get our hands on some of the new Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X golf balls and they feel REALLY good. The Tour Preferred balls are real soft and nice. The Tour Preferred X golf balls feel like they're in between the Pro V1 and Pro V1X in terms of softness... feels like you can really get good feel around the greens even though it's suppose to be "not as soft"

And also got to hit the new Tour Preferred MB irons - the 3, 5, 7 and PW and they feel really good and again, pretty forgiving given how it looks Smile

just our initial thoughts Smile

i feel the putter is probably the hardest piece of equipment to change in your bag, so much of it has to do with confidence and being comfortable with a certain putter! tiger didn't switch to a nike putter until about 2010 i think? and even rory flip flopped last year between a nike putter and his scotty cameron!
