Harrison Crowe created some history at Concord on Sunday, the 20-year-old becoming first player to hold both the NSW Amateur and NSW Open titles concurrently since Jim Ferrier in 1938. Here is what the St. Michael's member had in the bag.
WINNING SCORE: 18-under-par, 195.
DRIVER: Titleist TSi3 with 10° loft, fitted with Graphite Design Tour AD VR-7 TX shaft.
3 WOOD: Titleist TSi3 with 16.5° loft, with Mitsubishi Chemical White 80 TX shaft.
UTILITY: Titleist T200 (3-iron), with Graphite Design Tour AD Hybrid DI-95 X shaft.
IRONS: Titleist T100 (4-iron to 9-iron), with KBS Tour 120-X shafts.
WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 (48°-10° F Grind, 50°-12° F Grind & 56°-10° S Grind) Titleist Vokey Design WedgeWorks 60° T Grind), with KBS Tour 120-X (46 & 50) and KBS Tour 610 130 wedge shafts.
PUTTER: Scotty Cameron T-5.5 Proto.
BALL: Titleist Pro V1x.
- Crowe's full bag of Titleist equipment gives the brand three straight PGA Tour of Australasia victories, and it was his longest and shortest clubs that did the heavy lifting throughout the week. The shaft of Crowe's driver is so worn the model and flex is almost unable to be read, yet it clearly doesn't affect the performance as Crowe smashed his way around Concord throughout the week. His mallet putter featuring a flow neck that suits his arcing stroke.
Like so many of his fellow elite players in Australia, Crowe uses Titleist's T100 irons that offer a blend of forgiveness and control and carries a T200 long iron replacement that didn't get much use for the week. His wedges playing a big role, including the T Grind lob wedge that is a popular model on all Tours.
Crowe marks his golf ball with his initials either side of the number, and uses a line to help setup for putts and gives Titleist's Pro V1x a hat-trick of wins around Australia.
