  • What's In Their Bag

    27 Jun 2011

    WGT took a look at what virtual equipment was used by the top players in the 2011 Virtual U.S. Open Championship.

    Here's what's in the bag for mrenn29, the Virtual U.S. Open Champion:



    TaylorMade R11 9.0 Driver (L88+)

    TaylorMade R11 3 Wood (L85+)

    TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Iron Set (Steel) (L79+)

    Wedges (note, playing 3 wedges and no hybrid)
    Cleveland CG16 52 degree Wedge (L74+)
    PING Tour W 60 degree Wedge (L42+)
    PING Tour W 64 degree Wedge (L42+)

    TaylorMade Daytona Putter (L55+)

    Callaway Tour i(z) Balls (L35+)

    If you look at the equipment used by ALL 210 qualifiers in the Virtual U.S. Open, most is similar to mrenn29, but with some interesting exceptions, especially with the short game equipment including the wedges, putters and balls, as well as the practice of carrying an extra wedge instead of a hybrid.
