Our Unbiased Reviews
  1. 1. Ping G410 Plus Driver

    Pros:
    • Movable-weight technology enables you to position the center of gravity (CG) for better control
    • Trajectory Tuning 2.0 expands your loft and lie options using a new hosel sleeve
    • Custom CG locations (draw, neutral, fade) to cater to your swing
    Cons:
    • On the pricey side
    • All combinations of shaft types and flexes, and loft degrees might not be available
    • This clubs is better suited for more experienced players

    What Woodland uses: Ping G410 (9 degrees adjusted to 7) with an Accra RPG 475 M5+ shaft. 

    What you can get: You can get your hands on the Ping G410 Plus Driver, which is available in multiple shaft flexes and styles, as well as 3 different loft degrees (9, 10.5, and 12). The shaft is available in Regular and Stiff, while the shaft options are ALTA CB Red Graphite, MRC Tensei CK Orange Graphite, and Ping Tour 65 Graphite.

    This golf driver has some innovative technology, all designed to improve your consistency off the tee. The movable-weight technology enables you to easily change the center of gravity (CG) so you can get more control of your ball. You can put the CG in 3 different positions — draw, neutral, or fade — to help with straighter if you struggle in those departments. The Trajectory Tuning 2.0 expands your loft and lie options by using the new, patented 8-setting hosel.

    Other highlights include fast forged face to promote extra ball speed, sound, and feel on contact, and Dragonfly Technology, which combines with the new creased crown to increase forgiveness on off-center shots.

    Woodland is a bomber off the tee, ranking in the top 15 in driving distance on the PGA Tour.

     
  2. 2. Ping G400 Fairway Wood

    Pros:
    • The maraging steel face flexes 30 percent more for maximum launch
    • Machine back weighting system allows you to increase moment of inertia for extra forgiveness
    • The thin crown is lightweight, which leads to faster balls speeds and extra distance
    Cons:
    • Not the exact club Woodland uses
    • It's a little on the pricey side
    • Only available for right-handed players

    What Woodland uses: Ping G410 LST (15 degrees) with an Accra Tour Z X4100 M5 shaft. This club has a smaller head with the center of gravity (CG) slightly lower and more forward than in standard heads. This leads to easier launch, less spin, and better distance.

    What you can get: This isn’t the exact club Gary Woodland uses, but the G400 Fairway Wood is a club that is billed by Ping as the highest-launch wood they make. That’s because of the innovative maraging steel face that flexes 30 percent more. The machined back weight is 25 percent more dense and that increases the total moment of inertia (MOI) for extra forgiveness. The 17-4 SS crown is extra thin and lightweight and that helps with increased ball speeds and distance.

    The G400 comes in 3 wood (14.5 degrees) and 5 wood (17.5 degrees) but the loft can be adjusted + or -1 degree.

    Woodland doesn’t carry any hybrid golf clubs

    Cons:
    • This set is for right-handers only and it comes in stiff shaft flex
    • They're on the pricey side
    • No headcovers included

    What Woodland uses: Wilson Staff prototype (18 degrees) and Wilson Staff Model Blades (4 iron through pitching wedge) with KBS Tour C-Taper 130 X shafts.

    What you can get: Wilson Staff Model Blades, which feature precision milled faces and score lines that are designed to give you maximum control on all your shots. The Fluid Feel Hosel is designed to cut out unnecessary weight in the hosel, so there will be a  larger head and wider sole for better playability. 

    You’ll get 8 total clubs (3 iron through pitching wedge) and each has Golf Pride grips, the Tour Velvet models, and True Temper Dynamic Gold stiff steel shafts.

    These are rather expensive, so protecting them with a new set of golf iron covers might be a good idea.

  4. 4. TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe Wedge

    Pros:
    • Precision Weight Port (PWP) creates better center of gravity (CG) for more balance, control, and consistency

    Pros:
    • Thinner topline provides a better view at address

    • Vibration dampening materials helps improve sound and feel on contact
    Cons:

  6. 6. Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls

    Pros:
    • 17% thinner urethane elastomer cover adds speed but retains spin and control in the short game
    • The larger casing area is designed to promote ball speed for added distance
    • The Fast Core provides more ball speed and less spin off the tee
    Cons:
    • Probably best suited for more advanced players
    • A little less compression than the Pro V1x (90 vs. 100)
    • They are on the pricey side

    What Woodland uses: Titleist Pro V1

    What you can get: The same, Titeist Pro V1.

    When it comes to golf balls, Titleist’s Pro V1 has been one of the most popular models with PGA Tour pros and casual players for years. The design of the ball aims to give any player more short game spin and control at the landing by creating a softer feel, while not sacrificing distance off the tee.

    With a 17 percent thinner urethane elastomer cover, extra speed has been added while the ball will maintain its high spin and control qualities in the around the greens. Titleist calls that their “Drop-and-Stop” short game control. Off the tee, the fast core and larger casing area are designed to promote more ball speed and less spin which results in extra distance.
