Update from Adam Scott – WGC-Bridgestone Invitational
Posted: August 5, 2009
It's Wednesday and I'm in Akron at the Bridgestone. I had a good practice round today and the course is in really good shape. The fairways are pretty narrow so you've got be exact off the tee and the greens are very quick so need to have precision with the short stick. I always look forward to playing this course and this year is no exception. The field is very competitive this week given it's a World Golf Championship event and every tournament from here on out is very important.
I'm playing some new irons this week - the new Titleist MBs. They are traditional style blades and are similar to the type of irons I played my entire career until switching to the AP2 irons in January 2008. I'm really feeling good with them and getting good feedback from the clubs. I think the irons have more of a user friendly design which allows a little more forgiveness in the hitting zone. Very clean and very simple. I'm looking forward to seeing how I go with them this week. Titleist will release the clubs sometime late this year. I'll keep you posted on how things progress with them!
I have an early tee time tomorrow so need to run to dinner and then will have an early night. I'll be in touch from Hazeltine next week.
Until then, take care.
