Henrik Stenson swaps out bionic 3-wood for Callaway Golf’s GBB Epic


SHARE THIS STORY



Henrik Stenson is swinging a new 3-wood at the 2017 Omega Dubai Desert Classic, and that's a big deal.

You see, Stenson has been relying on a 2010-11 Callaway Golf Diablo Octane Tour 3-wood for years, even winning the Open Championship with it in July 2016. He nukes the thing. It goes a long way. It reduces his need for driver almost to zero, something important for a guy who has battled driver-specific and full-swing yips in the past.



Now he's moved into the new Callaway Golf Great Big Bertha (GBB) Epic line, putting the 15-degree 3-wood into play at Emirates Golf Club.

The new GBB Epic 3-wood has a similar spec setup to Diablo Octane Tour, complete with a Grafalloy Blue X Shaft. Callaway European Tour reps report that Stenson was particularly drawn to the hike in ball speed he saw with the Epic while maintaining, and even improving, that crucial distance control which is why he uses the 3-wood so much in the first place.

Stenson is still carrying the Callaway XR from his Open Championship win as his other fairway wood.

For a man of habit to make a change, however, is a huge piece of news.
