Every facet of the 24-year-old's game was in fine form around the Jumeirah Golf Estates’ Earth Course. Off the tee he relies upon TaylorMade’s SIM driver, a SIM 3-wood and a SIM2 5-wood, with which he ranked eighth in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee.

Morikawa’s phenomenal iron-game was on full display across all four rounds in Dubai. Using a mixture of three TaylorMade irons within his set, he was able to find 79.15% of greens in regulation.
