MASTERS: Wednesday Practice
Congratulations to TaylorMade Tour Staff pro Ryan Moore on winning the Par-3 Contest. Here’s hoping he can be the first to win that and the green jacket in the same year.
Last day at Augusta and we built numerous clubs for past champions. Trevor Immelman asked for a SpeedBlade 3-iron. Another two players requested equipment changes: one asked for the SLDR 430 in 12° and 10.5°, and the other for his Tour Preferred MC irons to be re-shafted.
We also received requests from three non-competing past champions: Nick Faldo asked for two SLDR Rescue clubs and a set of our new Tour Preferred wedges; we also built two SLDR drivers for another past champ and an SLDR 3-wood for yet another. These guys may no longer be competitive here, but they still know what’s what in golf equipment.
Another former major winner, 2010 PGA Champion Martin Kaymer, was the latest player to request an SLDR Mini Driver.
By 2pm it was clear that our work here was done, we started packing up and breaking down, and it was wheels up at 3pm. As always, we left with the hope that one of our Tour Staff pros will be sliding his arms into a green jacket come this Sunday evening.
