What a weekend of sport that was not least in golf where both Francesco Molinari and Justin Rose scored convincing wins in Wentworth and Fort Worth.

Francesco Molinari Whats in The Bag 2018

You might have been wondering why Justin Rose was playing out in Fort Worth and not at Wentworth.  As  a member of both the PGA and European Tours Rosey found himself in a bit of a Catch 22 situation.  With the PGA Tour's new "once in every four" rule to retain membership, he had to choose to play an event he hasn't played in the last four years. That boiled down to the Fort Worth Invitational opposite the BMW PGA Championship or the John Deere Classic opposite the Scottish Open and the week before the Open Championship.

Equipment wise both men won using remarkably similar equipment.

Former Nike staffer Francesco used a TaylorMade M4 driver while Rose used an M3 440 with very similar Mitsubishi Tensei shafts.  They both used a mix of M3 and M4 fairways, both had a P790 4-iron and the same TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges including a 60 degree Hi_toe.
The Italian games TaylorMade's P750 irons while Rosey has his own P730 Rose Proto's.

Where the two men differ is the flatstick.  Rose uses a TP Ardmore 2 while Fran uses a Bettinardi Dass BBZero decked out in the Italian colours.
