Enter Andres Victoriano a certified True Spec fitter at the company’s shop at Trump National Doral Miami who gave Montoro a custom fitting and made a couple of interesting changes to his bag including swapping a hybrid for one of his long irons and getting him into a new iron model altogether to combat his spin.
His lone remaining Nike club is a Vapor Fly Pro driving iron. Here’s a full list of the aforementioned gear he used to prove he’s currently the best closer on the PGA Tour: Cleveland wedges have been some of the most popular in the game seemingly since they were first introduced in the late 70’s.
An extremely thin Urethane cover and low compression core round out the features by providing exceptionally soft feel and feedback at impact. Brooks Koepka shot a pair of 66s over the weekend at Bellerive CC in St. Louis to capture the PGA Championship his third-career major.
As is the case with all Srixon models the Soft Feel features an Energetic Gradient Growth Core that produces low spin and high launch for outstanding distance. The Ionomer cover on the new Soft Feel is softer and thinner than in the previous model allowing for improved spin rates on short shots around the green as well as an overall more pleasing short-game feel.
A forged carbon steel clubhead further enhances feel at impact while an internal face perimeter cut-out design increases the effective hitting area on the face by about 15%. This provides more forgiveness on off center hits and better ballspeed retention overall.
