John Daly made headlines with his wild equipment setup at this year's PGA Championship. The two-time major winner, who is playing on a sponsor's exemption at this week’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship, used an unreleased PXG prototype driver, oversized SuperStroke S-Tech Club Cord grips, and TaylorMade P-770 irons which were covered in so much lead tape it was difficult to decipher what brand and model the iron heads were

Daly’s clubs weigh almost 30 grams more than standard because of his significantly oversized and heavy grips, meaning the 56-year-old needs to add a healthy amount of lead tape to properly balance his irons.

But, when PGATOUR.COM caught up with Daly at a recent PGA TOUR Champions event, we found that Daly has made significant changes to his equipment setup.

Since the PGA Championship, Daly changed out his driver, 3-wood, hybrids and irons. While his irons are still slathered in lead tape for balancing purposes, he’s switched to Ping Blueprint Forged model.

Take a closer look at what he has in the bag.
