Scottie Scheffler Dominates with Qi10 Driver and Spider Tour X to Win Second Arnold Palmer Invitational

Scottie Scheffler won his second Arnold Palmer Invitational behind an impressive bogey free five-stroke victory with his Qi10 8.0° driver and new Spider Tour X putter. It’s his seventh PGA TOUR victory, all coming since 2022 and with TaylorMade drivers and irons.

After extensive testing at home prior to Bay Hill and during practice rounds, Scheffler put his Spider Tour X L-Neck putter in play for the first round.

Entering Sunday T1, Scheffler dominated on the greens by leading the field in Strokes: Gained Putting for the final round behind going 17-for-17 on putts inside 15-feet. He backed that up with leading the field for the tournament in SG: Off the Tee with Qi10 8.0° driver.

Scottie’s Spider Tour X Spec

  • Hosel: L-Neck
  • Length: 35.5’’
  • Sight Line: True Path with Full Line
  • Loft: 3°
  • Lie: 72°
  • Insert: 80/20 Pure Roll
  • Grip: Golf Pride Pistol

In testing, True Path alignment with a full sight line freed Scottie up to not have to use an alignment aid on his golf ball. The technology behind Spider Tour X allowed him and his coach to rely on his natural talent without having to modify technique. Between True Path and high MOI stability of Spider Tour X, he felt free on off-center hits and noticed a considerable increase forgiveness in testing.

The build from our TaylorMade tour reps paid dividends as Scottie posted three consecutive rounds of positive Strokes Gained Putting starting with the second round.  Scottie’s last 10 results when gaining positive strokes putting include four wins, a T2, solo 3rd, T3 and T4 (not in a particular order).
