THP the Magazine cover athlete and Champions Tour sophomore Fred Couples is once again making waves on the PGA Tour in 2011. This week he is your 2nd round leader at the Northern Trust Open and he is doing it with quite a mixed bag of equipment. Here is a look at what Couples has in his bag for this week.
Driver – TaylorMade R9 460 8.5*
FW – Callaway FT-I 15*
Hybrids – TaylorMade Rescue 11 18*
Irons – Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavity (3-PW)
Wedges – Cleveland 588 (54* & 58*)
Putter – TaylorMade Rossa Imola 6
Ball – Bridgestone Tour B330 (08)
Two things stand out immediately. The first is that he has a very large mix of brands and types of clubs that are taking him to the top of the leaderboard. The second is the Cleveland 588 wedges in his bag are truly becoming a wedge that more and more professionals are leaning on each and every week. Between those and the new CG16 wedges, Cleveland Golf had a wedge count this week of 64 at the Northern Trust PGA Tour stop.
