So, during the World Golf Championship - HSBC in China this week, everyone was buzzing about the mystery 3-wood that Phil Mickelson is playing. He's been very secretive about it, but the only thing being said is that it is NOT a Callaway.

Well, did some digging and found out he's actually playing a TaylorMade RBZ 3-wood, that he had painted black so it wouldn't draw too much attention.

Callaway claims they're ok with it and even goes on to admit it's longer than the Callaway 3-wood that Phil was previously using. He said it's longer than his 3-wood, but shorter than his driver. While watching this weekend, I saw him out drive Louis Oosthuizen, but Louis hit driver, Phil hit the RocketBallz.

I was going to ask if anyone knew what it was and forgot. I watched him hit 291 yards off the tee with it.

Lots of guys use the rbz tour issue. Ain't the rbz or rbz tours we buy ln the stores Haha

The distance is just insane. If they have an extra chance at making a long par 5 in two, they are going to take it no matter what club it is. And off the tee this thing can easily replace peoples drivers.

I would have to say I could be an RBZ but it's not its a prototype that's being released in 2013 just what I've read I could be wrong (but I'm not hahaha)

It is a TaylorMade RBZ 3-wood, here's the quote from the article:
"Phil Mickelson created some gear buzz of his own by pulling a TaylorMade RocketBallz 3-wood out of his bag at this week’s HSBC Champions event in China."

Everyone on tour plays the RBZ as their 3 wood almost. Dont be fooled, some just paint it black to cover it up. Think only a few big time players arent hitting it, like Tiger Woods and Rory. I know for a fact that Patrick Cantlay who is on Titleist Staff has one in his bag and it was painted black. When I caddied at the Chiquita Classic on the Web.Com tour we were paired with him and he had it in his bag and saw it myself, Jonas Blixt who is on staff with Cobra has one in his bag as well.

RBZ is the Fairway Wood of the year hands down!
