What They're Using

New Titleist Range An Instant Hit

Last week at the Scottish Open, Bernd Wiesberger went with Titleist's new U.500 driving iron as an option from the tee and longer approaches en route to victory, and the brand are happy to report that many other golfers are following suit at Portrush this week.

The new irons are proving popular too, with Jordan Spieth spotted using the new T100 sticks instead of his previous 718 AP2s.

Callaway July Major Bags

As is the custom for the major brands these days, Callaway has developed a special edition version of their Tour Bag which pays tribute to the year's final major taking place in Northern Ireland. A green and white colourway features a hexagonal pattern as a nod to the Giant's Causeway, the region's most iconic landmark.
