What’s in the Bag: Carl Pettersson 2012 RBC Heritage Championship

Whats in the Bag Carl Pettersson RBC Heritage Championship

Carl Pettersson’s performance was solid throughout the entire tournament, making major moves in the second round with a 6-under par, 65. He secured his victory with a 69 in the final round to win the tournament by a five-stroke margin.

Using the revolutionary Nike 20XI S golf ball and a Nike Method Prototype belly-length putter, Pettersson was ranked first in greens in regulation, putts per green in regulation, as well as birdies for the tournament.

“The 20XI S has given me great consistency and great feel around the greens,” said Pettersson. “I have also gained 10-15 yards off the tee with this golf ball.”

The new Nike 20XI ball features a technology never before seen in the golf industry. This game-changing technology replaces conventional rubber cores with a radical new resin material- faster and lighter than traditional rubber cores. Nike’s resin core technology accomplishes three critical performance components that golfers dream to have in a golf ball: More distance off the tee, straight ball flight, and increased control around the greens.

When asked if he had changed anything in his equipment, Pettersson said: “I put in a new putter. I’ve used it on and off before. It’s a Nike Method long putter, and I used it in Houston, finished second there. I putted well all week. So it puts a nice roll on it.”

Rounding out Pettersson’s bag were clubs from the VR franchise, including a 4-iron from Nike’s new VR_S line.
