DRIVING FOR THE WIN
hen you set a record for the lowest score in relation to par (20-under) in a major, and cruise to a three-stroke win, almost every club in the bag is probably working. But special attention should be paid to Jason Day’s TaylorMade R15 460 driver (below)with a Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Silver TiNi 70x shaft during his victory march at the PGA Championship.
Day not only ranked fifth in driving distance at 307.1 yards, but was T-5 in accuracy, hitting 73.2% of his fairways. Such power and precision allowed Day to beat up Whistling Straits’ par 5s, playing them in an impressive 14-under-par for the week. Day’s driver had 10.5 degrees of loft but was set in a lower loft position.The adjustable weights were centred for maximum distance. And no one at Whistling Straits was better putting from inside 10 feet than Day, who made 60 of 62 putts from that distance.
