Lydia Ko first put in her XR 16 Pro Driver last week in Arizona, where she finished 2nd and hit over 80% of fairways for the week. Last week in Carlsbad, during the 2016 Kia Classic at Aviara Golf Club, she hit over 75% of fairways, including a perfect 14 for 14 during the 3rd round. She told Callaway Tour Reps that she particularly likes how straight that she hit the driver during testing on the range and on the course.
Her hybrids and irons have consistently been in her bag this year and she moved into a Chrome Soft Prototype Golf Ball this week after previously playing a Chrome Tour Golf Ball. Her Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind Wedges have been in her bag all year too.
