Hi, is Adam Scott using a new putter? If so, what is it?

Good to see the new guys, what about the vets? Tom Pernice is at the top again, can you detail his new equipment? Looks like he's changed irons and is now playing Dynamic Gold shafts.

Adam did put a new Scotty Cameron prototype putter in play this week at the Sony Open. Check out the <a href="www.scottycameron.com/.../slideshows.aspx rel="nofollow">Sony Open slideshow on ScottyCameron.com</a> for more details.

The big changes to Tom's bag during the off-season were the additions of a 909F2 fairway (13.5°) with a Fujikura ZCOM Pro95 and two 909H hybrids (17° and 21°), both with the Fujikura Speeder 904HB. Tom is still using the 909D3 driver and AP2 irons he ended the 2008 season with, though you are correct in noticing that he did switch to Dynamic Gold shafts in his irons.
