In his first tournament playing the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver, Phil Mickelson bombed huge drives all week on the way to a dominating wire-to-wire win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Mickelson consistently split the fairways with towering 300+ yard drives and came within a lip-out of shooting 59 in the first round. The Hall of Famer was quick to credit his driver throughout the event.
“I finally gave our new RAZR Fit Xtreme a chance and I tell you what, on Tuesday when I hit it, I kept looking up and I was almost in disbelief at how easy it was, how straight it was,” Mickelson said after his brilliant opening round 60 on Thursday.
His driver has 8.1° of actual loft with a 5 gram weight in the toe and 3 grams in the heel. The 45″ shaft is a Mistubishi Rayon Fubuki K. 059 prototype model 70X.
As the week progressed, he offered more details on why Xtreme performed so well for him:
“The driver spins so low that I can have more loft on the club, making it easier to hit,” Mickelson said. “This has got to be good for every player I would think, but it sure as heck is good for me. And by having it be a low spin driver with enough loft, and because it’s that RAZR Fit Xtreme where you can fit it, I was able to get it dialed in to where it goes straight.”
And his great quotes kept coming:
“If I drive it like this and feel as easy as I do over the driver, my iron – the strength of my game is my iron play,” Mickelson said. “So if I can drive it like I did and with the ease with which I did and the misses be where they were, then this could be a really big deal for me.”
Mickelson used RAZR Fit Xtreme, a HEX Black Tour Ball, RAZR X Muscleback Irons (4-P) and an Odyssey Black Series Tour Designs #9 Putter to earn his 41st PGA Tour win. He led the field in birdies and greens in regulation, finished a remarkable 28-under for the week and thrilled the record-breaking crowds with his spectacular play.
