Adam Scott has put a new driver into play this week at The Players Championship, just a week after neglecting to use one during the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The former Masters champion put the new TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver in his bag for the week at TPC Sawgrass, as well as the TaylorMade Stealth Plus 3-wood.
Earlier in the 2022 PGA Tour season, Scott became a free agent after splitting with Titleist. He used to use the Titleist TSi4 driver with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 7X shaft.
However, his new big stick has certainly had a baptism of fire in Florida this week. He shot a 78 in his first round and he has played one hole of his second round.
His driving accuracy is just over 40% so far, but the treacherous wind and heavy rain have not exactly made it easy for the Aussie to find a rhythm with his new club.
It would seem that the former World No.1 is experimenting with the top end of his bag now that he is a free agent. In the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Scott left the driver out of his bag.
Instead, he used a Titleist TSi2 2-wood with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 9X DI 10X shaft and a TSi2 fairway wood as well.
Scott, who has won 14 times on the PGA Tour, has good reason to look for answers with his long game. Although he is ranked 18th in driving distance, he is ranked 179th in driving accuracy percentage
When The Players Championship restarts today, he will have a tough task to avoid missing the cut for the first time this season.
