The PGA Championship has already had its share of big names and big stories, but if one player was to add his own chapter to the history books, it would be Jordan Spieth. The young American phenom has been on a roll ever since his 2015 Masters win, and currently leads the PGA Tour in both tournament wins and money earned. He already has one major in his pocket (the 2015 Masters), and if he wins the PGA Championship, he’d become the first player ever to win three majors by age 24.
Jordan Spieth has played golf with the same clubs since he was a teenager, but recently switched to a new type of shaft after a friend suggested it would help him swing more smoothly. (Spieth, who was hit by a club during a recent practice session, will be playing hurt at the PGA Championship next week.) While the 23-year-old has been tight-lipped about what kind of a shaft he is using, it has been reported to have a “unique” feature that could possibly be a stabilizing weight.
As the PGA Championship looms, Jordan Spieth has added a brand-new secret weapon to his golf bag. The 23-year-old’s secret weapon is a brand-new putter that he has developed in partnership with TaylorMade Golf. Spieth will debut the putter this week at the PGA Championship in Indiana, where he will be competing for his third major title and second straight major. “It’s really been a lot of work in the last six to eight months,” Spieth told Golf Digest . “It’s been a lot of testing and a lot of work around the clock to get it to a point where I’m happy.”
Golfers are a unique breed of athletes. They are the most superstitious of all the major sports in the world and don’t want to change their routine when they are in top form. Unless they’re depressed and want to shake things up, golfers use the same clubs, caddie and equipment for every PGA Tour event. But Jordan Spieth, who has been playing his best golf for nearly four years, made an unexpected equipment change a week before the 2021 PGA Championship at Kiawah. Spieth hopes his new secret weapon can reward him with his first major championship and historic career Grand Slam since 2017.
Jordan Spieth put a secret weapon in his golf bag

With 12 Tour wins and three major championships under his belt, it’s safe to say that the V1x Pro has proven itself for the 27-year-old golfer. Spieth has played with the 2017 version of the ball for the past four years, so he is used to the feel and spin of the ball. But last week, he suddenly changed his mind for the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament at TPC Craig Ranch. Spieth has ditched the 2017 version in favor of the new Titleist Pro V1x 2021. According to Titleist’s official website, the new golf ball offers increased range, high ball flight, low spin in the long game, improved control on the Drop-and-Stop™ abrasive side and a softer feel. Spieth said he made the changes mainly because of the improved spin and higher tee angle he noticed in the 2021 version. I’m trying to optimize the launch conditions in the bag, Spieth told Titleist this weekend. For me, the 2021 Pro V1x provides more spin on the greens. It’s smoother, more spin on the greens with my short game. When I went to the bag, I started to get a little bit of a higher pitch, but it didn’t help the rotation on the long hitters. This only increased the speed of the ball and take off. The window is a little higher, but it looks like it’s screaming into the sky. And then from 7, I didn’t see much difference in the full shots, just, like I said, more action on the greens.

COMPARED TO: Former US President used mind games and aliens to beat Jordan Spieth in a golf match Prior to last weekend’s AT&T Byron Nelson tournament, Spieth played some of the best golf of his career. He came to the event with five top-five finishes and one win in his last seven starts at the track, leaving many wondering why he has changed his mind at this point. But Spieth immediately proved the doubters wrong. The world number 26 shot an impressive 9-under 63 in his first professional round with the Titleist ProV1x 2021 putter. Spieth made seven birdies and an eagle Thursday and shared the lead in the first round with J.J. Spaulding. In the next three rounds he recorded scores of 70, 66 and 71 to finish in ninth place. Next stop is the PGA Championship in Kiawah.
Spieth hopes to make PGA Championship history with his new secret weapon
None of the 5 men who have reached a modern professional Grand Slam have done so with a win @PGAChampionship. Jordan Spieth tries to be first this week – Justin Ray (@JustinRayGolf) May 18, 2021 COMPARED TO: Tiger Woods is a fool, says a PGA Tour star who knows him well Just one week after an unexpected equipment change, Spieth will compete on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in the 2021 PGA Championship, which begins Thursday. Should he win, he would become only the sixth player in PGA Tour history to complete the Grand Slam in his modern career. Spieth hopes his new golf ball will help him make golf history. When you’re stuck on windy, difficult golf courses and have to hit short holes, the extra spin ability around the greens is very helpful, Spieth said. Hmm, sounds a lot like Kiawah. Is Spieth expecting another major championship this weekend?
