Perhaps it's a little late, but I was just wondering about club changes that players made for the British Open. I would imagine taking bounce off of the wedges would be pretty common, but was there anything else drastic such as going to lower lofts with the driver? I would be interested to know. Thanks.

Any word on the availability of the 909 drivers to the public?

What size grips does Adam Scott use?  Does he use a piece of grip tape on his clubs?  Also, my girlfriend just got me a new S82 tour bag...just wondering what the guys store in them to fill the bag up?  The tour blog is great.

I was interested in why the AP2 is not offered in a 2-iron?  The long irons are incredibly easy to hit.  Thanks and keep up the good work.

Most players were reluctant to make big changes heading into a major championship.  A few players experimented with lower-lofted drivers to try to keep the ball flight down.  Many of the players did work with Voke to make sure their wedges were all set.  And a lot of lower-lofted hybrids and irons were built as an additional option on the tee to help keep shots low in the wind.

We created some prototype AP2 2-irons for Tour-testing, but there wasn't much demand among our Tour players for this club. Most of our players on Tour are opting to play either higher-lofted fairways or hybrids in lieu of 2-irons and sometimes even 3-irons.

Adam uses .580" round Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord grips.

Titleist 909 drivers will be available in select golf shops in October.

My AP2s have changed the game for me.  Almost surgical in their precision in both dispersion and distance, they've taken 15 strokes off my game and given me a ton of confidence.  My reason in writing is that I need a club that I can count on to be on the spot at 235 - 240 yards and the most appropriate choice would be an 18° AP2.  How may one go about obtaining a prototype head (I don't mind going through my PGA store and paying full retail plus) and match it with the same shaft I'm using in my other AP2s?
