The American, who is yet to win a major championship but has recorded eight top tens, plays a Bridgestone driver, irons, one wedge and a ball.

Interestingly, Kuchar only carries three wedges, deciding to carry two hybrids and a driving irons. He is also one of the very few players to use graphite shafts in his irons.

The lighter feel of graphite shafts is often preferred by some players as it helps them practice for longer as swinging them requires a little less energy.

Kuchar entered the Open Championship on a rich vein of form having finished T4 at the AAM Scottish Open, which was won by Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello.

He also finished T4 at the Memorial and as a result is currently ranked 18th in the world.
