Using a new Titleist 913D3 driver for the first time in competition, Adam Scott became the first player from Australia to win the Masters. Scott used a full bag of Titleist clubs, as well as a Titleist Pro V1 ball, to shoot 3-under 69 and defeat Angel Cabrera in a playoff.
While the driver was the only equipment change Scott made before the first round, he did have a couple interesting clubs in the bag -- including a Titleist 712U forged utility 2-iron that boasts a forged, hollow-body 1025 steel construction with a high-speed 455 carpenter steel face insert. The deep center of gravity is positioned for a higher moment of inertia that delivers increased stability and playability when compared to a traditional long iron.
Scott also started working with a Scotty Cameron for Titleist Futura X prototype earlier this year. The 52-inch Futura is a high-MOI putter that includes eight-way adjustable weights.
“I’ve worked pretty hard with Scotty Cameron on a putter this year,” Scott said. “I had a kind of backyard garage prototype in my bag for a couple of tournaments, but now it looks more like a production model. I’m excited about it.”
