Golf Monthly's weekly look at the equipment being used out on Tour.
Tour Gear Round Up: 2020
With the PGA Tour season in full swing and the start of 2020 and a new decade taking place, there has been a mountain of gear news out on Tour to get our teeth into.
English professional golfer Pepperell has changed his equipment manufacturer, going from Mizuno to Ping.
TaylorMade introduced its new club line-up for 2020, the SiM range. The woods have already found a way into several Tour players bags, for example Dustin Johnson has put a SiM Max driver, fairway and hybrid in the bag. Jon Rahm has put the SiM in his bag as has Matthew Wolff and Collin Morikawa.
Rahm was spotted using TaylorMade SiM woods as well as new shoes by adidas.
2018 Masters winner Patrick Reed has some new irons in the bag which have an interesting story. When they first appeared in his bag, Reed couldn't say who made the irons but the PGA Tour discovered that the company behind them is called Grindworks, and it is headed up by Japanese forging experts Kiyonari Niimi and Kenji Kobiyashi.
