Ryan Moore, who is without a golf club endorsement deal, used the following in his Wyndham Championship victory: Adams Speedline 9032LS driver (8.5 degree) with Graphite Design Tour AD QT 65 shaft (65 grams); Adams Speedline 9032Ti 3-wood (14.5 degree) with Graphite Design Tour AD QT 85 shaft (85 grams); Adams Idea Pro Gold hybrids (18 and 22 degree) with Aldila VS Proto 95 shafts (95 grams); Ping S59 irons (4-PW), X100 True Temper Dynamic Gold with Sensicore steel shafts; Ping MB sand wedge (54 degree), Titleist Vokey Spin Milled lob wedge (60 degree) and a Titleist Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 putter (with “Triple Black” finish not available to consumers in this model).

Moore has a Callaway golf ball deal and used the company’s Tour i at the Wyndham.

During the 2009 season, Moore has used four models of Ping irons – S59, S58, S57 and i10. Since the U.S. Open in June, he has gone from S57 to i10 to S59.

>> Like Moore, Mike Reid, winner of the Jeld-Wen Tradition, does not have a golf club contract.

Reid wants everyone to know he is an old-fashioned guy. With a couple exceptions, his bag hardly contains the latest models, just trusted gear:Titleist Pro V1 ball; Titleist 909H hybrid (24 degree); Titleist 983K driver (7.5 degree); Ben Hogan Apex forged irons (4-PW); Mizuno MP gap wedge (52 degree); Titleist Vokey sand wedge (56 degree); TaylorMade 200 Tour 3-wood (13 degree); TaylorMade Burner (18 degree) and a T.P. Mills putter.

>> Michael Sim, winning a “battlefield promotion” with his third Nationwide Tour victory of the season, had an all-Titleist arsenal: Pro V1x ball, 905R driver (8.5 degree, Diamana White Board shaft), 909F2 3-wood (13.5 degree), 909H hybrid (19 degree), AP2 irons (3-9), Vokey Design wedges (48, 54 and 60 degree) and a Scotty Cameron Newport Squareback putter.

>> Ping had more drivers in play – nine – than any other manufacturer at the Solheim Cup.

The players: Angela Stanford, Cristie Kerr, Maria Hjorth, Anna Nordqvist, Gwladys Nocera, Tania Elosegui, Diana Luna, Sophie Gustafson and Becky Brewerton.

>> Kevin Stadler, who lost in the Wyndham playoff, used a new Emma putter from Yes Golf. It was a long putter (48 inches) with a single grip. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
