NICK SAYS:
“I hit these at the AT&T National last June, loved them, and threw them in my bag. [Watney won the event.] The toe is more squared and the sole is thinner, so it gets through turf more smoothly.”

PUTTER
Titleist Scotty Cameron Newport Fastback Select Prototype
35”, 4° loft; $299
NICK SAYS: “I played at Hartford [in June 2011] and putted very poorly; I couldn’t get a feel at all. I switched the next week to this putter. It’s a different look—a cream-colored mallet versus my old black Anser-style. It has more offset, but it looks great when I set it down.”

BALL
Titleist Pro V1x (2007)
NICK SAYS: “The ball has changed the most from my college days. It goes 25 yards farther now off the tee and is more durable.”
