Pat Perez's Winning Bag
TaylorMade released its new, adjustable R9 driver last Monday, and Pat Perez and 12 other pros had one in their bags at the Bob Hope Classic, making it the most-used driver at the event.
When he was asked about his new driver, here's what Perez had to say:
I'm not just saying this because I play it, but I'm telling you it's the best driver I've ever hit. And I've tried a lot. It's got the screw-in at the bottom, you screw the shaft in deal. I got it on Monday, I told the guy I had to try this thing. ... It's unbelievable.According to TaylorMade, Perez set his R9 with a face that is 1° open with the lie angle set between neutral and right.
