After failing to make the cut at in the Open at Carnoustie, the world No.1 got straight back to winning ways with victory at the RBC Canadian Open the following week.

Earlier this year, we saw Johnson switch between TaylorMade’s M3 and M4 drivers featuring Twist Face technology. The M4, however, has proven to be more effective for the big-hitting American, with all three of his victories this season coming with it in the bag. Johnson currently ranks first in Stoked Gained: Off-the-tee for the 2017/18 season on the PGA Tour.

He has also experienced some incredible success with his TaylorMade Spider Tour Black putter over the last two years but last week changed to the Spider Tour Mini after two rounds at Firestone. Johnson surged up the leaderboard on the weekend after putting the Mini into play and will be looking to continue holing plenty of putts at Bellerive.
