It was a no-brainer for the golf world when Tiger Woods revealed that he and his son Charlie would be competing this week at the PNC Championship. For the first time since his automobile accident in February, everyone wants to watch the 15-time major winner play on television. Charlie, now 12 years old, was the star of the show at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando last year and we’re eager to see how far he’s come since then.
There is a fair likelihood that Tiger and possibly Charlie will be using prototype equipment at this year’s PNC Championship based on information from Golfweek sources.
Stealth and Stealth Plus+ drivers from TaylorMade were added to the USGA and R&A’s Conforming Driver lists on Monday, In order for a driver to compete in an official competition, the clubs must first be tested and approved by the sport’s governing authorities.
On Monday, the USGA and R&A’s Conforming Driver lists included the TaylorMadeGolf Stealth and Stealth Plus+ drivers, three weeks before the PGA Tour begins in Hawaii. The PNC Championship may be the place to look for one. As of this writing, there are no plans to add a feature that would allow users to save their favorite tweets to a cloud storage service like as Dropbox or Google Drive.

Prior to the first PGA Tour event of a new year, TaylorMade and other manufacturers ask the USGA and R&A to add new equipment to the lists. Keeping the new gear a secret is the goal here. Even though the Stealth and Stealth Plus+ drivers were added rather early, anyone who already owns one of these cars could use it in the PNC Championship if they so desired.
It’s plausible to believe that TaylorMade has delivered Woods a Stealth and Stealth Plus+ driver to play on the range at the Albany Golf Course two weeks ago, when he utilized the identical TaylorMade SIM driver he used at the 2020 PNC Championship.
A prototype Bridgestone ball was unveiled by Tiger Woods on Twitter on Wednesday.

As of Dec. 15, 2021, Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) is still alive.
XS is readily visible on the boxes of the Bridgestone Tour B XS ball, which Woods has been using for several seasons and which can be purchased for $49.99 at Global Golf.
“I’ve been working with Bridgestone’s R&D team on a new version of my ball since the 2019 Zozo Championship,” Woods stated in a statement. “I’ve had a lot of pleasure working on this ball.” “I’ve tested the new Tour B prototypes at home, and I’m eager to put them to the test at the PNC Championship,” he continued. Taking my prototype testing to the next level is exactly what I need to do at this event.”
Both the TaylorMade Stealth drivers and the Bridgestone Tour B XS ball should be available for purchase by the end of January, based on past experience.
