Marc Leishman claimed victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a bag packed full of the latest Callaway gear.
Leishman and his fellow countryman, Cameron Smith, overcame the South African pairing of Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel on the first playoff hole at TPC Louisiana.
The Australian recently made the switch to Callaway’s new Chrome Soft X LS golf ball. This low spinning version of Callaway’s tour-calibre golf ball seems to be the perfect fit for the high spin player. He commented, “my speed is up, the flight is consistent, and the spin is so good around the green.”
The 37-year-old also had Callaway’s latest Epic Speed driver in the bag. He opts for the tour-only, Triple Diamond head, which helps him to once again bring spin down.
Off the tee he also relies upon a Epic Speed 4-wood, and will switch between a Apex Pro hybrid and Apex UT driving iron depending on course set-up. Leishman is one of the best ball strikers on the PGA Tour, currently ranking 11th for the season in Strokes Gained: Approach. At the beginning of the 2021 season he switched to the latest Apex TCB irons.
He carries three Jaws MD5 wedges, in a Raw finish, and uses an Odyssey White Hot OG #1 Wide putter with a Stroke Lab shaft.
