A brief survey up and down the range revealed that as far as long-game equipment is concerned, the 2-iron is still in play on the PGA Tour. Westwood is of this camp. But like a lot of players, he favors a cavity back model (his is from long-time equipment partner Ping) over a more blade-like design.
'The idea is to get it up in the air, after all,' Westwood said of his i10 2-iron.
Oosthuizen (I got a pronunciation lesson: Loo-ee WEST-hoizen) goes the hybrid route, as so many recreational players have done. (His is also from Ping - a Rapture hybrid, 18 degrees.)
'Even out of rough lies, I can hit it high or low,' Oosthuizen said.
Options keep the game interesting.
