Even be­fore win­ning the RBC Her­itage ti­tle on the PGA Tour, Bran­den Grace felt he was ben­e­fit­ting from a re­cent driver change. He put Call­away’s then-pro­to­type XR16 Sub Zero driver in the bag at the WGC-Dell Match Play and has kept it in play ever since. Ac­cord­ing to Call­away, Grace was drawn to the club’s shape, fin­ish and, noti­ci­bly, its sound. Grace also felt like he could shape the ball flight off the tee bet­ter and ma­nip­u­late his tra­jec­tory – all help­ful traits at a short, nar­row course like Har­bour Town. Grace typ­i­cally prefers low-spin driv­ers, and prior to the Sub Zero had been play­ing the Big Bertha Al­pha 816 Dou­ble Black Di­a­mond, which he won with at the Qatar Masters.
