Wall-to-Wall Equipment: How Keith Mitchell's putter switch won the Honda Classic

Spider X’s True Path system found on the crown is designed to improve focus while increasing the potential for more putts to catch the center of the face.

Long before it earned a spot in Charl Schwartzel’s bag, PXG’s Drone prototype putter resided on a rack inside the equipment manufacturer’s R&D facility collecting a thin layer of dust.

Mizuno’s JPX 919 Hot Metal is a true game-improvement iron with a thin face designed to improve ball speed, which in turn boosts distance.

His most recent switch to Ping’s G410 Plus driver (9.6 degrees exact loft) wasn’t made with distance in mind (although Mulllinax saw similar numbers compared to G400 Max); it came down to a tighter dispersion he saw with the club, and the ability to hit a baby draw on command.

With no time to practice at home, Malnati chose to bring the irons with him to PGA National — the only set he had in tow — and work them into his bag during the early portion of the week.

… Seamus Power added a set of Ping Blueprint Forged irons with the OEM’s lie angle dot system, the latest hint that the better-player model should be coming to retail this year.
