Lee McCoy Wins Q-School: What’s in his Bag?

AJ Voelpel

University of Georgia alum Lee McCoy can finally take a deep breath.

The 23-year-old shot lights out at the final stage of Q-School in Chandler, Ariz., posting rounds of  65-67-63-65 (28-under) to take home medalist honors and secure full status for 2018.

McCoy took a page out of Lefty’s strategy book and used TWO drivers to work his way around Whirlwind Golf Club; an 8.5° head with a longer shaft and a 10.5° head with a shorter shaft.

“I hit the short one more…depending on if I’m not hitting it well, I’ll use the short one, make sure I get it in play,” he told Tour’s Kevin Prise. “But it really has kind of changed my game, putting that longer driver in, especially out here on these 590, 600 yard par 5s where I can actually get there in two.”

It was a stellar day overall for young Callaway staffers, as six other players finished 45th or better to earn their Tour status:

T3 – Curtis Luck

T10 – Maverick McNealy & Sam Burns

T30 – Joey Garber

T42 – Brandon Matthews & Chase Wright

Here are the clubs McCoy used to win:

Lee’s 8.5° Epic was used when distance was at a premium.

GBB Epic (10.5°)

Phil was one of the first staffers to put Chrome Soft into play in 2015. He raves about how low spinning it is off the tee and how well he’ able to control it with his wedges.
