- Reed has been an equipment free agent in recent time, choosing to use the brands and models he believes best suit his game rather than being contracted one company. The American currently carries clubs from five different manufacturers, the most interesting his prototype blade irons. Made specifically for the 29-ear-old the irons are made by Japanese company Grindworks, known for the forgings and premium gear, whose logo Reed now also has on his bag.
- The 2018 Masters winner still uses the same PING G400 driver he claimed his maiden major title with, while his 3-wood and hybrid are among the most frequently changed clubs in his bag, the latest Callaway models both recent releases.
- Reed’s putter did most of the damage in Mexico this past week, the Scotty Cameron model featuring a slant neck for more toe hang helping him to rank first in both Strokes Gained: Putting and Putts per GIR (green in regulation), while he also managed 45 one putts for the tournament.
- Unlike other players with free reign to pick their clubs whilst having a contract in place for their golf ball, Reed once again plays what he chooses, the Titleist Pro V1 a constant factor for the American in recent years. The brand’s Pro V1 and Pro V1x balls completing a hat trick of wins last week across the WGC, PGA Tour and PGA Tour of Australasia.
