SPOTTED ON THE RANGE
The FedEx Cup Playoffs kicked off with The Barclays two weeksago, wherethere wasnoshortageofinterest- ing equipment for Golf Digest’s Ben Walton to focus his lens on at Plainfield C.C. ( 1) The blue color of Luke
Donald’s Mizuno S5 wedges might be the thing that catches the eye,
but a closer inspection reveals he plays with relatively low bounce
( 8 degrees on the 54-degree wedge and 6 degrees on the 60-degree).
( 2) Looking for a little extra launch, Will McGirt uses a pair of Srixon
Z U45 utility irons—a 20- and a 23-degree—that feature wide soles.
( 3) Davis Love III used this interesting iron-set makeup to win the Wyn-dham Championship in August, which included a Mizuno Fli-Hi 2-iron,
Ping S55 3-iron and Titleist MB 4- through 9-iron. ( 4) Hunter Mahan
has put Ping’s new i Series irons in play. —E. Michael Johnson
