Els experimenting with ball, shafts in Asia
Friday, October 25, 2013
There wasn’t much of an offseason for touring pros in 2013, but Ernie Els is experimenting with new golf equipment just like he might in the longer offseason of years gone by.
Playing in Asia, Els has been doing some experimenting with equipment. Last week in the Venetian Macau Open, he used a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball. This week in the CIMB Classic, he is playing a TaylorMade Lethal ball.
Els is a Callaway staff player, and mostly has played the Callaway HEX Black Tour ball in the last two years.
The biggest change for Els, though, is graphite iron shafts in his Callaway irons (5-9 Razr X Muscleback and 3-4 X Utility Prototype). For the two Asian events, he has used 125-gram Recoil Prototype iron shafts from UST Mamiya.
