WITB: Brandt Snedeker - Wyndham ChampionshipAugust 19, 2018 Golf Equipment
The Bridgestone staff player uses the same golf ball as Tiger Woods. But what else is in the bag?
Brandt Snedeker WITB. Bridgestone golf clubs are not that easy to come by over here in the UK but there are some models in Snedeker’s bag you will be able to pick up at your local pro shop.
Interestingly, Snedeker also has graphite shafts in his irons so don’t think extra-stiff steel shafts are the only way to go for the world’s best ball strikers.
Fellow Bridgestone staffer Matt Kuchar takes a similar approach.
This was a ninth PGA Tour win for Snedeker and he did it after shooting a 59 on Thursday. But it wasn’t all plain sailing as he dropped back to a share of the lead with CT Pan.
But after Pan drove it out of bounds on the 72nd hole, Snedeker made birdie at the last for a three-shot victory over Pan and Webb Simpson.
Snedeker’s driver is a Bridgestone JGR prototype.
He then opts for a couple of TaylorMade M3 fairway woods.
He has a mixture of the Bridgestone J15 and J40 irons before a couple of J15 wedges.
Snedeker also carries a 60˚ Vokey prototype lob wedge.
He plays the same Bridgestone golf ball as Tiger Woods so if both are included as two of Jim Furyk’s Ryder Cup wildcards they could be a potential foursomes pairing.
