The clubs Scottie Scheffler used to win the Hero World Challenge – including a new custom putter
Scottie Scheffler used an interesting blend of clubs to take on the Hero World Challenge and come out on top.
Scheffler was accurate throughout his visit to the Albany Club in the Bahamas.
His bogey-free four-under final round of 68 meant he finished on 20 under for the tournament and sealed a three-shot win from Austrian Sepp Straka.
“I think this is great for momentum,” Scheffler told NBC.
“I talked a little bit about it at the beginning of the week; this was kind of a warm-up for the [next] season.”
Scheffler prefers to drill his tee shots that little bit lower and harder and turns to the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus 8 degrees to get the job done. While TaylorMade are set to launch a new Qi10 driver in 2024 it seems that Scheffler is pleased with the 2023 released Stealth 2 Plus.
He trusts the Stealth 2 range for his 3-wood as well, but interestingly Scheffler uses neither 5-wood nor 7-wood clubs and also doesn’t put a 2 iron in his bag which tells you a lot about the world No.1’s game right now, especially off the tee.
For his 3 and 4 irons he turns to Srixon and their ZU85 range, while he trusts the P7TW range from Taylormade for options five through to the pitching wedge.
Like almost every professional, when it comes to his wedges, Scheffler goes to the wedge GOATS Titleist and their Vokey Design SM8 50-12F and 56-14F as well as a Titleist Vokey Design WedgeWorks Proto 60-06K.
For his wedges Scheffler uses True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts and on his irons he deploys True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100. On his driver he has a Fujikura Ventus Black 7 X shaft.
The new addition to his bag in the Bahamas came in the form of a fresh prototype putter.
Scheffler has been sighted with yet another new putter, this time from a relatively obscure manufacturer: Olson Putter Co. Logan Olson founded the firm, which has been producing some incredible bespoke putters for over seven years.
Scheffler’s putter is custom made and handcrafted and based on an Anser 2 or Newport 2 head shape. This means it’s a conventional blade with sharper angles and a boxier appearance at address. The flange seems to be somewhat extended from the face and has a single black site line painted on it.
The top line includes an intriguing alignment aid; it appears to be several little milling lines that extend from the face to the flange to maybe better frame the ball.
