Brandt Snedeker 1024X682

Snedeker’s trip to the store

Disaster hit Brandt Snedeker ahead of the WGC-Dell Match Play as he noticed his beloved Odyssey White Hot XG Rossie putter, which debuted at retail a decade ago, had its head loose.

He played with an untested replacement putter against William McGirt in his first match, which he lost 2DN, and headed into the local Golf Galaxy store to get a replacement in time for his match against Andy Sullivan on day two.

Snedeker went on to win his next two matches against Sullivan and Branden Grace, but it wasn’t enough to see him progress as McGirt won all three.

Russell Knox

Change up for Knox

Srixon brand ambassador Russell Knox has put the company’s Z565 driver in play after a few months using the TaylorMade M2.

The Scot is the highest-ranked player using the new driver, which has a larger clubhead and higher trajectory than Srixon’s Z765 driver.

Sergio goes for the Spider

In Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm, both finalists at yesterday’s WGC-Dell Match Play had the TaylorMade Spider Tour putter in the bag – highlighting its position as the most successful putter on the PGA Tour this season.

And, in addition to Jason Day and Ross Fisher – who put it in the bag in Mexico – it has now worked its way into the bag of Sergio Garcia.

So, who’s next?
