WITB – Hot PING putter propels Champ to victory

Cameron Champ 3 M Open

Cameron Champ is back to winning ways on the PGA Tour after an incredible performance on the greens at the 3M Open.

The American ranked first in Strokes Gained: Putting using his PING Prototype PLD Anser 4. This turnaround of form on the greens was nothing short of miraculous, given that prior to this week, Champ ranked 206th out of 208 players on the PGA Tour for Strokes Gained: Putting.

The 26-year-old is renowned for his power off the tee, so it will come as little surprise to learn that he recorded the longest drive of the week at TPC Twin Cities, bombing it 391 yards down the fairway during the third round with his PING G425 LST driver.

Champ puts his trust in PING’s iBlade irons and also carries two i500 irons at the long end of his set.

• Which PING iron is right for you?

Using his three TaylorMade wedges, he ranked seventh in scrambling and his golf ball of choice is the Srixon Z-star.
