What’s in Martin Kaymer’s US Open bag?June, 2014 News & Tour
We take a look at the equipment which helped Martin Kaymer to a convincing victory at Pinehurst.
Martin Kaymer showed strength and character in running away from the world’s best players for a wire-to-wire win at the 114th U.S. Open Championship by 8 strokes.
The German first put the TaylorMade SLDR driver into play at the 2013 Open Championship and has kept it in the bag ever since.
Known for rarely making equipment changes, Kaymer also added the new TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC irons to his bag at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in February.
Prior to the US Open, Kaymer had a Tour Preferred 3-iron de-lofted to a 2-iron for low trajectory shots and maximum roll on Pinehurst’s fast fairways.
In addition to his bag full of TaylorMade clubs, Kaymer has worn the adidas Golf adicross gripmore since the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March, where he praised the shoe’s comfort and performance attributes.
He wore adicross gripmore during his dramatic victory at THE PLAYERS Championship in May and throughout the US Open Championship.
