This week in Dubai, Stenson is making a big change to his bag set up by putting in the new GBB Epic 3-wood (15*). During Henrik’s prolific run over the past several years, one of the go-to clubs in his bag was the Diablo Octane 3-wood that he consistently hit long and straight from both the tee and the fairway.
His new GBB Epic 3-wood has a similar spec setup to his old gamer 3-wood, featuring a Grafalloy Blue X Shaft. According to Callaway Tour Reps, Henrik particularly liked that the ball speed was higher with the new Epic 3-wood, and his distance control was better, an advantage that helps him on tee shots with tight landing areas.
GBB Epic is already the #1 Callaway Fairway Wood on both the PGA and European Tours. And the GBB Epic Drivers area already off to a prolific start on Tour, with almost 100% conversion rate among our PGA Tour staffers already.
Media were quick to jump on social to note the Epic change:
