Brandt Snedeker Career Highlights Video
Driver: Bridgestone JGR (9.5 degrees)
Shaft: Fujikura Speeder Evolution 661 (X-Flex)
Bridgestone has been bringing state of the art drivers to the market for years. This year, the Bridgestone JGR driver features Bridgestone’s new power mill face design. This new face design helps produce lower spin rates by increasing the amount of time the ball spends on the face of the club at impact. The JGR also includes a new crown design with both internal and external channels, which allow for more flex at impact. The science behind these channels is to increase ball speeds and launch angles while ribs in the sole add stiffness for increased energy transfer. The JGR also incorporates an 8 gram internal weight that promotes a slight draw; perfect for those who fight a slice in their drives. The new Bridgestone JGR driver is a great example of how Bridgestone is applying new technology to its lineup.

Fairway Wood: 3 wood: Callaway X Hot at 15 degrees, 5 Wood: Tour Stage X-FW at 18 degrees
Shaft: 3 Wood: Aldila Tour Blue 75X, 5 Wood: Fujikura Pro Tour Spec 83X
The Callaway X Hot is a prime example of why Callaway continues to stand out despite all other golf brands. First, the X Hot features Callaway’s forged speed cup frame technology, which generates one of the highest COR (how “hot” the face is) and CT in golf. Simply put, this means players will achieve maximum ball speeds anywhere on the clubface along with the benefit of a more consistent distance, even on mishits. Secondly, what Callaway calls the Modern Warbird Sole, has been integrated for improved performance and distance from the fairway or the rough. Finally, the Dynamic Weight Projection, which includes a heaving weighting element inside the head, assists in projecting the sole towards the face. This technology lowers the CG to produce a low spinning, piercing trajectory that can help players increase both ball speed and distance. With all these features, one thing is for sure—the Callaway X Hot is definitely living up to its name.
