Golfers competing in the Ryder Cup are typically set with their equipment several weeks, if not months, ahead of the biennial competition.

However, according to Callaway, Xander Schauffele is going with a slightly different driver at Whistling Straits after tinkering and working with the company’s fitters for the past few weeks.

Throughout most of 2021, Schauffele, who currently is ranked No. 5 in the world and who finished the last PGA Tour season ranked 22nd in driving distance, used a 45.5-inch Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond driver (from $529.99 at Carl’s Golf Land) with 9 degrees of loft fitted with a Graphite Design Tour AD BB 7 X shaft.
