Hannah Green more than justified her billing as the marquee player at the Vic Open, the West Australian claiming a six shot win. Here is what the 25-year-old had in the bag at 13th Beach.
WINNING SCORE: 13-under-par, 276.
DRIVER: Srixon ZX7 with 10.5° loft, fitted with Fujikura Ventus Blue 6R shaft.
3 WOOD: PING G425 with 14.5° loft, with Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana ZF60 S shaft.
5-WOOD: PING G425 with 17.5° loft, with Fujikura Ventus Red 6S shaft.
IRONS: Srixon ZX7 (5-iron to pitching wedge), with Aerotech Steelfiber i80 R shafts.
WEDGES: Cleveland ZipCore (50°-10° MID, 54°-10° MID & 58°-10° MID), with Nippon N.S. Pro 980 DST R shafts.
PUTTER: PING Sigma2 Tyne.
BALL: Srixon Z-STAR Diamond.
- Green interestingly mixes flexes throughout her bag. Like many of her fellow Tour players, the West Australian carries wedges with softer flex shafts, but moves from a regular flex driver shaft into stiff fairway woods, then back to regular in her irons.
One of the longer players in the women’s game after working to add swing speed over the last few years, Green has a significant gap in her lofts from 5-wood to 5-hybrid, with the stamped lofts adjusted via the hosel to optimise carry distances and remove any yardage gaps.
The 2018 KPMG Women’s PGA champion is a recent convert to the new Srixon Z-STAR Diamond golf ball that was developed as part of Brooks Koepka joining the brand’s Tour staff. Green marking her ball this week with a smiley face, while her nickname ‘Greeny’ is stamped on the side.
