What was in Adam Scott's bag at The Masters?
Masters winner Adam Scott had two new pieces of equipment in the bag at Augusta.

Scott played a Titleist 913D3 driver for the first time in the week, although he had had it and been testing since the Tampa Bay Championship in mid-March.

"I've actually been able to work in the new Titleist 913 driver for this week, which was a process for me, because I've just driven it so well the last couple of years with the previous model," Scott said. "But they have done some nice work and over the last month or so, I've been able to work that into the bag, which I'm very happy about. Just seeing a couple of benefits with the ball flight, especially here for Augusta."

The 913D3 is a newer version of the same driver that Scott had been using. It has 9.5 degrees of loft, a neutral (A-1) hosel setting and a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8 shaft measuring 44.75 inches. Scott said that he gained a higher ball flight with similar spin characteristics, and that he plans to use it in competition going forward.

Scott's putter, a long Futura X model, was new this week as well. He had practiced with a very raw version of the putter starting in December of last year, and putter designer Scotty Cameron added more perimeter weighting for increased stability.

And, with Scott winning with the long putter, more questions were raised about whether the anchoring stroke is a benefit. Now, four of the last six majors have been won by players using belly-length or long putters.

"I don't know that this is going to impact any decisions at all," Scott said. "You know my feeling on it all; that it was inevitable that big tournaments would be won with this equipment, because you know, these are the best players in the world and they practice thousands of hours. They are going to get good with whatever they are using. It's inevitable."

Scott's putter is 49 inches long and has 3 degrees of loft.
