- Henderson put on an outstanding driving display around Wilshire Country Club this past week, missing just six fairways and averaging 270 yards off the tee for the week. Among a rather unique set make-up, Henderson’s driver is perhaps the most intriguing. Stamped with 9˚ of loft, the driver is actually turned down to 7.7˚ and measures 48 inches, which is three inches longer than standard and is fitted with an extra stiff shaft. Part of the length is due to Henderson gripping down the club significantly, while the shaft plays slightly softer given the extra length than it would if cut to a standard 45 inches.
- Among the other interesting titbits of Henderson’s bag, there is three different shaft flexes fitted in her clubs from extra stiff in the woods to stiff in her irons and wedges and regular in her hybrid. Despite the different markings, all the shafts have been tipped to various amounts to play exactly as Henderson requires. The major champion also carries a 60˚ wedge that is bent to 64˚ and a putter with just 2˚ of loft.
- Henderson’s win was part of a six win weekend for Titleist golf balls around the world and also gives the company six wins from seven events on the LPGA Tour so far in 2021.
