SOUTHPORT, ENGLAND —
Heading into this British Open championship, Sergio Garcia was tagged as the "Best Player to Have Never Won a Major." And after his near-miss last season at Carnoustie and win at The Players, it makes sense.
But Adam Scott is ranked higher (No. 4) than Garcia (No. 7) and possesses one of the best swings in golf. The knock on Scott has always been that his short game and putting don’t match the caliber of his long game, but Thursday at Royal Birkdale he posted an even-par 70 to finish just one shot off the lead in a tie for fourth.
Here are the clubs he used:
Driver: Titleist Pro Titanium 905R (8.5°) Fairway woods: Titleist 906F4 (13.5°) Hybrid: Titleist 585H (17°) Irons: Titleist AP2 (2-9) Wedges: Titleist Vokey 200 Series (49°), Spin Milled (55°) Putter: Scotty Cameron for Titleist Newport GSS Ball: Titleist Pro V1 (Photo by Robert Beck/SI)
