Most golf fanatics are fast to generalize PGA Tour players as long hitters. They think that the reason why PGA Tour players are successful is their 300+ yard drives, which allows shorter irons into green, which means more control, which means more birdies… right?
WRONG. Have you seen Jordan Spieth play?!?! Every time he is playing with another top player, his tee shot is always the shortest one. Jordan is 95th in driving distance with 291.7 yards. This means Spieth has to be sharper with the other side of his golf bag, his wedges and putter.
Now, most Spieth fans will emphasize how well he putts and how he has had the same custom Scotty Cameron since he was 15 years old. The kid is phenomenal with the flat stick. With the traditional Scotty, Jordan is able to sink 20-footers under high pressure situations. Now it is going to be hard to get your hands on a Scotty Cameron 009, without breaking the bank. (BUT IF YOU WANT TO BUY ONE, CLICK HERE.) The closest an average Joe can get is a Scotty Cameron Newport. The Scotty Cameron feel is like no other putter, and will suit any player.
Spieth was stick the ball within 10 ft. so many times during the Open Championship. These shots were not from 170 or even 155, they were from 130 and in. From this distance, Jordan is using the Titleist SM6 wedges. SM6′s not only offer great pop off the face, but they produce more spin than its competitors. I am a Cleveland wedge guy, but I am highly considering the switch.
