The Travelers Championship 2024: WITB Scottie Scheffler

After an exciting season start, Scottie Scheffler secured the win back at the Players Championship 2024, the Masters Tournament 2024 and the RBC Heritage. Scheffler continued to rely on TaylorMade and the new Spider Tour X putter, which his Tour colleague and TaylorMade staff player Rory McIlroy recommended to him in March and won back to back. After his win at The Memorial Tournament, Scheffler books in his sixth win of the season at the Travelers Championship 2024.

WITB: Nacho Elvira wins the Soudal Open 2024 with Callaway

Nacho Elvira wins on the DP World Tour for the second time in his career. After his victory at the Cazoo Open in 2021, the Spaniard secured victory at the Soudal Open 2024 in Belgium on a thrilling final day. After three dominant days, Nacho Elvira had his problems, especially after a rain interruption on the final day, allowing his two pursuers Niklas Norgaard Moller and Romain Langasque to close the gap. In the end, however, a round of 71 was enough for the triumph in Antwerp. For his victory, Elvira opted for a bag similar to the one Xander Schauffele used at the PGA Championship the previous week and therefore put his trust in the equipment supplier Callaway.

WITB Nacho Elvira 2024 – With Callaway to victory

Nacho Elvira has the latest Paradym AI Smoke Driver in the Triple Diamond Max edition in his bag. This has a neutral to fade-oriented clubface, which is particularly aimed at low handicappers and tour pros. The club offers good handling from the tee, which should ensure a high ball launch and low spin. Among the fairway woods, Elvira also uses the same Triple Diamond model for golfers with a higher swing speed who are looking for precise ball control and a penetrating, low-spin ball flight. A Callaway X Forged Utility Wood bridges the gap to the Callaway Apex TCB irons. The Spaniard relies on the latest model from this year. When it comes to wedges, the newly crowned Tour winner puts the Callaway JAWS MD5 (50° and 54°) and the Callaway JAWS Raw (58°) in his bag. For the putter, Elvira opts for the White Hot OG Rossie from Callaway’s Odyssey brand, which specializes in the manufacture of putters. The Callaway Chrome Tour golf ball completes the Spaniard’s bag.

WITB: Xander Schauffele’s Equipment for the PGA Championship 2024

It was a thrilling competition, but in the end Xander Schauffele won the 2024 PGA Championship under his own steam and with it his first major victory. With seven PGA Tour victories and six top five finishes in major tournaments, he was considered one of the best golfers without a major title – until now.

Even though it’s been two years since his last victory, it was his mental assertiveness that carried Xander Schauffele all the way to his major win. Especially with Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland breathing down his neck, the 30-year-old was aware that he had to play his game patiently. Even though he did not reach his target of 22 under par, 21 under par was enough for him to win and set the all-time record for the lowest major score. He relied mainly on Callaway for this performance.

Schauffele also uses the same Triple Diamond model among the fairway woods for golfers with a higher swing speed who are looking for precise ball control and a penetrating, low-spin ball flight. A Callaway Apex Utility Wood bridges the gap to the Callaway Apex TCB irons. In doing so, he seems to favour the 21′ version of the UW over the newer 2023 version. In addition to a Callaway JAWS Raw (52°), Schauffele complements his bag with Vokey SM 10 wedges (56°, 60°) from Titleist. His Odyssey Las Vegas putter is a prototype.

WITB: Brooks Koepka with Srixon and Cleveland to Fourth LIV title

The PGA Championship winner in 2023 switched to Srixon/Cleveland as his sponsor two years ago and has been playing with clubs and tour bags from the Japanese brand ever since. However, Brooks Koepka first had to look for the right partner. In addition to various companies, Brooks Koepka also tried out different models from the manufacturers. Now he’s winning again on the LIV Golf Tour and we take a look inside the tour winner’s bag.

WITB: The golf equipment of Brooks Koepka 2024

For his driver, he opted for the ZX5 LS Mk II model from Srixon instead of the “pro model” ZX7. With a weight in the back part of the sole, the ZX5 helps to achieve a straighter swing path and slightly more launch height compared to the ZX7, while the low-spin version also helps to achieve a penetrating ball flight and therefore more length, at least for the pros on the tours. For the fairway wood, Koepka looks back to the 2017 model from TaylorMade. The M series was the predecessor of the current Stealth models and seems to have taken a liking to the American. The M2 fairway wood with 16.5 degrees makes it into his set up. The fairway wood is complemented by the Nike Vapor Pro Driving Iron. The sporting goods manufacturer’s iron, which was released back in 2015, has a centre of gravity directly in the sweet spot and, despite the now nine-year-old technology, seems to be a bank in the setup of the renewed LIV winner.

For his irons, he then opts again for Srixon and the blades from the latest 2023 series. The ZX7 Mk II irons impress with their slim design and offer Koepka the possibility of different flight curves and the best possible control over ball flight and spin.

He also relies on his equipment supplier for the wedges and opts for the sister company Cleveland. The RTX Zipcore wedges are also in his bag for the 2023 season and seem to have won his trust around the green. In addition to a putter from Scottie Cameron in the Newport 2 Tour version, the Srixon Z-Star Diamond golf balls make it into Koepka’s bag.

Callaway Golf announces Minjee Lee as new staff professional

Today Callaway Golf, one of the industry’s leaders in equipment design, performance, and innovation, announced a new multi-year staff pro agreement with global women’s golf superstar, Minjee Lee. With this announcement, Lee will carry 14 Callaway clubs in the bag, including an Odyssey Putter, plus a Callaway golf ball, bag, and glove.

Minjee Lee joins Callaway Golf for 2024

The 27-year-old Australian native has been a dominant player throughout her golf career. Lee was the #1 ranked Women’s Amateur prior to turning professional in 2014, and since then she has won 10 LPGA Tour events, including major victories at the 2021 Amundi Evian Championship and the 2022 U.S. Women’s Open. She recently won two LPGA events in 2023 at the Kroger Queen City Championship and the BMW Ladies Championship. Her brother Min Woo Lee is also a Callaway PGA TOUR Professional.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Callaway Staff, and I’m excited to see how their equipment will help my performance going forward,” Lee said. “They’re the most played club brand on the LPGA, so I’ve seen how good the product is, and how much it’s helped my brother take his game to the next level. Now that I’ve had a chance to try their new driver and the Chrome Tour Ball, I feel confident in my setup, and I know that this is the right decision for me.”

“Minjee is such a special talent, and we want to help her reach her goals, win more events, and compete on the biggest stages,” said Tim Reed, SVP of Pro Tour at Callaway Golf. “Our fitters have had a great experience so far working with her, listening to her feedback, and getting everything dialed for her game. We can’t wait to see what she achieves with our equipment in play.”

Her current bag features a Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond Driver, an Odyssey Putter, and a new Chrome Tour X Ball.
