In the live press conference a few minutes ago, Phil Mickelson just mentioned that he will be playing two drivers this week at the Masters. He will be removing the 3-iron and hybrid from the bag as he won’t need those because of anticipated higher temperatures and shorter 2nd shots on the par-5’s which will only require 4-iron or less.
Not “fade” versus “draw” drivers
Contrary to popular belief, his drivers aren’t two different setups with regards to one being a fade bias and the other a draw bias. The difference is that one driver is one inch longer than the other. The longer driver will be in use on holes 1, 2 and 8, providing about an extra 15 yards of carry to clear fairway bunkers.
Not playing Tuesday practice round
Phil will not be playing in the practice round today because the conditions will be so different compared to the weekend.
