MY BAG: Gary Woodland

"I've been hitting the three-wood so far that I was able to add loft and put in a steel shaft for better control without giving up any distance."

Cobra AMP Cell Driver

LIMITED EDITION GREEN IN TIME FOR THE MASTERS

Cobra broadened its fashion-forward offerings to include a limited run of 1,800 green-headed AMP Cell drivers. Starting on March 15, the green monsters ($399; each one marked on the sole for authenticity) will be available with a green grip, a Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board graphite shaft, plus matching head cover and wrench. The club's adjustable hosel has six loft settings: 8.5°, 9.5°, 9.5° Draw, 10.5°, 10.5° Draw and 11.5°. Its elliptical club face has "dual roll"—it's flatter below the center line of the face—to increase launch without increasing backspin. In addition, an elliptical pad behind the face improves ball speed on low-heel and high-toe shots.

The center section of the sole contacts the ground at address, which keeps the club face square at setup regardless of loft.
