PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Despite being ranked No. 4 in the world, Steve Stricker still doesn't get much attention at major championships. But with a solid iron game and a great putting touch, a lot of people think he has the game to conquer Pebble Beach and contend at the 110th U.S. Open.
If he is going to win this week, Stricker will do it using a new set of Titleist 710 CB irons. He had been playing Titleist's Forged 755, and planned to make the change earlier this season, but a win at Riviera in February convinced him to keep the old clubs in the bag a little longer.
However, while at home resting in Wisconsin and recovering from a shoulder injury, Stricker finally made the change. In the video below, he explains the difference in feel between the two sets.
