Jason Day Claims Farmers Insurance Open; 4th Global Win in 6 Weeks for TaylorMade’s New M Drivers with Twist Face Technology

Monday finishes on the PGA Tour certainly aren’t ideal.

But if you were to ask Jason Day how he felt about the Monday finish I think he might be ecstatic about the Monday finish this past week. In a playoff determined Monday Day went on to win the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines this past week. In this press release released from TaylorMade Golf Canada (thanks to Nick Obritsch) they list what Jason Day had in his golf bag to capture the victory.

Also of  importance, I feel that it’s my duty to inform everyone that Jason Day was also playing shafts from TPT Golf in his driver and fairway wood. Yes… the same shaft played by Justin Rose that assisted Rose in having a killer end to the 2017 Tour season. below is the press release.

What You Need to Know:

– After testing with the Tour team in the weeks leading up to the tournament, Jason Day settled on TaylorMade’s new M3 driver (10.5° turned down to 9°) with one weight all the way forward and the second, 1″ back of neutral. Day loves Twist Face Technology in the M3 because it minimizes the diving hooks he occasionally misses with on high-toe strikes. For the week, he averaged over 321+ yards off the tee.

– TaylorMade’s 2018 M Drivers featuring Twist Face Technology now have victories in 3 of the last 4 PGA tournaments (as well as 1 European Tour event in that timeframe), with Day joining TaylorMade stablemates Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm as tournament champions on the PGA TOUR.

– Day’s victory is his eleventh on the PGA TOUR and fifteenth as a professional.

– Day continues to use the P750 irons, which he first put into play in Kapaula last year. His setup has remain unchanged, using 3-PW with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold X7 shafts.

– Day’s wedge setup occasionally varies depending on the course setup, but he’s gotten comfortable with the 48°/52°/60° combination so far this year.

Product Testing In Florida

As many of you know the process has begun for the “2018 PGA Show Edition” of the Teezy Awards. Before I really delve into that I have to point out that there are almost too many great products that were introduced last week at the PGA Show. It’s a great thing for the industry but it could also be a curse as well  because it really makes it difficult to whittle the nominees in the field down.

However, as the year progresses and I test and review more products there will inevitably be a year end version of the Teezy Awards. That process has officially begun as of this afternoon. While I’m in Florida the plan was to play golf and start testing products while doing a couple of golf course reviews along the way for good measure. Products that I begun to test on the course today included the new TaylorMade Golf Project (a) and Project (s) golf balls. The immediate first impression of both golf ball models were that they were very impressive. I drew one conclusion of the two balls head to head and that conclusion was that I really preferred the overall performance of the matte finished Project (s). Special thanks go out to Eric Loper of TaylorMade Golf for spotting me these yet to be released golf balls.

Another product that I started testing already is a line of men’s underwear from UFM (Underwear For Men). While the brand offers several styles and lengths of men’s undergarments I opted to try their 3″ trunk version. Comfort, performance and a real sense of security for the parts in the southern hemisphere. Their drawstring is a stroke of genius that gathers all of the parts together making them different that other brands on the market. By the way, UFM held up real well throughout the golf swing today.

TRUE Linkswear. The brand has returned to the Pacific Northwest where they belong and moreover they’ve returned to their trademark comfort. Today, I wore my TRUE Original “kicks” during my round at Apollo Beach Golf Club and these shoes are actually more comfortable than I recollect from the past. A huge improvement that they’ve made is the spikeless pattern and the liner that keeps the foot secured in the upper. They were absolutely amazing today in wet conditions. I may have rode a cart but it was cart path only and my legs and feet feel fresh. Jason and company what a course debut.
