PGA Tour Professional, Ricky Fowler, was one of the few players to resist the LIV golf league. The American golfer held the official No. 1 ranking in the world for 36 weeks. And his skills on the pitch are well known to all his fans. However, the golfer recently opened up about his blank shaft, which was a mystery to many fans.

Fowler recently made headlines after making some comments on the PGA Tour regarding LIV Golf’s handling of matters. He also joined golf legend, Tiger Woods, recently during the special meeting of the BMW PGA Championship. And his decision to stick with the PGA Tour helped him build fan loyalty for his loyalty to the former tour.

But one thing that has always caught the eye of Fowler fans is its black-on-black Mitsubishi Diamana driver’s shaft. And the golfer recently gave details of his driver’s shaft, which turned out not to be a “prototype”. A Twitter post from Jonathan Wall made fans aware of Fowler’s words about his driver tree.

“It’s a [Diamana] Whiteboard they used to make,” Hunter said. “I played whiteboard in high school and college, so they still had blanks left that were never painted as usual.”

It is common for players to use new prototype trees on the PGA Tour. And so Fowler using an “invisible” tree wasn’t such a big surprise. The one Fowler used is the Cobra King F9 driver with a Mitsubishi Diamana White Board 73X shaft. According to sources, the golfer used to play with the same model back when he was in college.

Although he is nowhere among the top 100 players on the tour, Rickie Fowler’s opinions are still considered important by officials. Although he was completely against the LIV golf league, he also spoke out against PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan. Fans speculated that the PGA Tour pro would join the new Saudi-backed league soon. However, all those rumors died down when he accompanied Tiger Woods in his private jet to attend the BMW PGA Championship meeting.

Speaking about how the PGA Tour is handling the issues at LIV Golf, Fowler said: “I told the Tour and Jay when I met them that I don’t think they handled it very well at all,”. According to the golfer, the PGA Tour had to be proactive since the day it saw the threat of LIV Golf coming. And watching the tour take things lightly from day one, Fowler’s statements are hard to contradict.
