What was in Adam Scott's bag at The Masters?
Masters winner Adam Scott had two new
pieces of equipment in the bag at
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The 913D3 is a newer version of the same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

"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.
