Rory Sabbatini Plays R11 To Win But Short Game Was Saviour

I've had some people comment to me on Twitter that focusing on a pros equipment is a waste of time. My opinions differ. I'm a golf equipment junkie I like to know what the pros are using. Does it make me rush out and buy their clubs, certainly not. Do I think that's the best equipment out there or the best equipment for my game, certainly not again. I just like to know what they're playing. I do reviews and test out what equipment ends up in my bag.

Rory Sabbatini won this week with a R11 driver in the bag. It certainly wasn't his driving that won the tournament for him. The short game again week in week out wins tournaments for the pros. Rory was T2 in putts per round and T19 for putts in GIR. He only had 6 bogeys all week with no doubles or others.

Rory Sabbatini is a great golfer, and even better than that - he's a South African like me. Yeah! I really hope Ernie does well this week in the Masters.
