Adam Scott started the 2016 season on absolute fire, winning two events in Florida including the WGC -- Cadillac Championship over the likes of McIlory, Spieth, Day, Watson, and Mickelson. He’s currently up nearly 600 points in the PGA Tour standings and in good shape to have the best season of his young career.
Part of the Titleist team, Scott’s bag looks a lot like Jordan Spieth’s, same driver, 3 wood, and Vokey wedges. Let’s take a look at what was in his bag for his most recent win at Trump Dural. Let’s take a look at what he is hitting in the early part of the 2017 PGA season.
What’s In the Bag: Adam Scott
Driver: Titleist 915D2 at 9.5 degrees
Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver TiNi XTS 70X
The Active Recoil Channel on the new Titleist 915D2 driver is our favorite new feature in a club… The biggest reason is just how forgiving and long this driver is… we mean ridiculously long and forgiving. In the coming weeks we will do our head-to-head 2016 driver competition, and I’m betting this driver wins forgiveness and competes with the Callaway XR for distance. There is a reason this driver is in Scott and Spieth’s bags. Being this is it’s second season, this driver starts at just $160 at Global Golf.
3 Wood: Titleist 915F at 16.5 degrees
Shaft: Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 9.2X Tour Spec
Built using the same technologies as the 915D2 driver, this 3 wood is in Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth’s bags this season. Scott has been one of the most accurate players on the tour on approach shots 250+ yards, a lot of that is his flawless swing, but it doesn’t hurt to hit one of the most consistent fairway woods on the market.
Irons: Titleist 680 MB
Shaft: True Temper Project X LZ 6.5
These irons have been in Adam Scott’s bag for the majority of his career, he’s just hitting them better this season. You won’t find these in your local GolfSmith anymore, but the new 716 irons are really, really similar and are currently on Golf Digest’s Gold List. Check out the latest lightly used Titleist sets at Global Golf, and pick up a new set of 716 irons or forged 714’s from under $350.
Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 -- 48,54,60 degrees
These wedges will be available later this season, but judging by the way Scott and Spieth have looked hitting them, they should be this year’s best selling wedges. The exact release date for the Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges is Friday, March 11.
Putter: Scotty Cameron Futura Rev X10 Xperimental
Ball: Titleist Pro V1
By the end of this season, we should have a WITB article for just about every golfer on tour this season, and will have some official numbers on the percentage of pros using each club, putter, and ball. At this point nearly 80% of the golfers we have covered in our what’s in the bag series have used the Titleist Pro V1 ball. Anytime you see that many pro’s agree on one ball, it’s a pretty safe bet that it’s the best product on the market.
The main drawback of playing these balls is the price, however if you order overrun balls from GolfSmith, you can get the price down over 25%. These balls obviously have a club logo or name on it, but are the same ball at a great discount.
