Henrik Stenson. What the hell is this in the bag?

Looks like some kind of driving iron - couldn't find anything on the net. Does anyone know?

Just to the right of the red stripe on the driver cover.

Perhaps it's a Ping Rapture driving iron - lines just look different.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Having a great conversation with myself here.

More likely this Callaway prototype utility.

During Scottish Open they went through the bag a bit on Sky Sports with his caddy. But I can not remember details at all. Perhaps someone else does.

It looks like it is the Callaway utility to me. Has anyone here ever used a driving iron? I assume you just get a lower ball flight than say a GI long iron?

Just the opposite, they help you get a higher ball flight, they have a lower center of gravity.

I just found out they are hollow. That would makes sense then.

Yeah, they're an alternative to the hybrid - different look at address and different turf interaction.

More geared for off the tee box than the turf I would imagine?

Of course, but hitting it as an iron, you hit the ground afterwards also.

I gotcha, I was just thinking they may be geared more for hitting it a bit higher on the face.  As in when they are tee'd up.

Hmmmm... You got me on that one, I'm not sure. Being that I suck and don't have the most consistent contact I really couldn't say...
