Toy Box short shots: Senden's putter, more
John Senden, who contended at the McGladrey Classic, used a new counterbalanced TaylorMade Ghost Tour Series Monte Carlo putter. . . . Scott Verplank has more TaylorMade SLDR clubs in his bag than any other PGA Tour player. At the McGladrey, Verplank carried four SLDR metalwoods: driver (10.5 degree), 3-wood (15 degree), 5-wood (19 degree) and hybrid (21 degree). . . . Nike’s Covert 2.0 driver has not been released yet, but already the company’s touring pros are flocking to the new driver. At the McGladrey, five of the nine Nike staffers used the Covert 2.0: Stephen Ames, Scott Brown, Kevin Chappell, David Duval and Seung-yul Noh. Six of the nine played Nike’s new 2014 RZN ball, which also has not been released to the public. . . . At the McGladrey, Aldila captured the manufacturer wood shaft count, driver shaft count and hybrid shaft count.
