Justin Thomas claimed his maiden World Golf Championship with the help of two recent additions to his bag: the Titleist TS3 driver and 3-wood.
The American switched to Titleist’s latest TS metalwoods at the US Open and was full of praise for the new driver following his victory at Firestone.
“I switched to a new driver at the US Open, the new Titleist TS3 and I liked it right away,” explained Thomas. “It was a little bit faster, which everybody likes.
“When I'm driving it well, I just swing as hard as I can and it feels like it's going to do what I want and that's a comfortable feeling, especially here at Akron or Bellerive.”
The 25-year-old put on a ball-striking masterclass throughout the week, highlighted by his incredible power and precision off the tee
Thomas finished the week ranked T11 in driving accuracy stats and 12th in driving distance, averaging 329.3 yards off the tee. Despite only being 5’8” inches tall and weighing a little over ten stone, Thomas is one of the biggest hitters on the PGA Tour. His longest drive at? A whopping 394 yards.
Thomas’s final-round of 69 was enough to secure a comfortable four-shot victory over Kyle Stanley, marking the young American’s third PGA Tour title of the season and his ninth overall.
