Wetterich Returns to Action After Lengthy Departure
Posted: March 8, 2010
Titleist Brand Ambassador Brett Wetterich returns to action this week at the Honda Classic, 21 months since he last teed it up on Tour at the 2008 Memorial Tournament. Since that event, Brett has been sidelined by numerous injuries to his shoulder, wrist, and knee. Playing this season on a major medical exemption, the 2006 EDS Byron Nelson Championship winner has 17 events to earn enough money to keep his exempt status. For more on Brett's return to the PGA Tour, be sure to check out Craig Dolch's article on PGATour.com.
The Titleist equipment in Brett's bag reflects the fact that he has not had the opportunity to test much of the new gear released during his absence. With the new groove regulations in effect as a condition of competition on Tour this season, though, Brett has moved into the new CB irons and Vokey Design Spin Milled C-C wedges. Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill worked with Brett earlier this week and noted that "Brett was having some trouble with spin and launch and with his 60 degree digging too much. We went to more bounce and tried the SM1 56-14 and SM2 60-10." After working with the wedges during his practice rounds, Brett noticed dramatic improvement over his previous wedges.
