As we know, Matt Fitzpatrick keeps his stats on every shot he’s ever played.

So, when a player like Matt Fitzpatrick makes a shock equipment change, it’s for a very good reason. 

Fitzpatrick had played the Ping S55 irons since 2013 but made the switch to the Ping Blueprint S irons in 2023 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship where he would go on to win.  

Now, from the outside looking in, you wouldn’t expect him to make a change for at least a few years. However, he has. Not only has he changed his golf ball, but he has also changed his irons. 

Matt Fitzpatrick played a 2019 Titleist Pro V1x but has made a recent switch to the 2021 Pro V1x model. This is quite a common update to a more recent generation, but when you see a slight improvement in performance, he’s obviously seen the importance of the marginal gains in flight and spin. 

Which leads us to his shock iron change.  

Not only has Fitzpatrick changed iron, but he has changed the brand, as well. As a Ping Loyalist since 2013, it is quite a surprise that he has jumped ship.

But when you’re looking for the right flight and spin what iron do you go for? 

Well Matt Fitzpatrick has switched Titleist T-100 in his irons. These new Titleist irons, combined with his ball change according to Fitzpatrick are a great combination.

“To me, I just needed a little bit more flight and a little bit more spin, and the combination of the ball and the irons did that for me,” said the 2022 US Open champion.

There are a couple of stats that stand out from last week’s Travelers Championship. Firstly, his control off the tee with his 2021 Pro V1x was impressive at 82.14% of fairways, whilst hitting the second longest ball of the tournament at 374 yards.

Meanwhile, his greens in regulation figure was very solid at 70.83%, an improvement on his average on the PGA Tour which is 64.55%. 

One thing is for sure. If he continues to have better control off the tee and continues to find those marginal gains and hit more green’s, he will have more birdie chances and hole more putts. It’s worth keeping an eye on Matt Fitzpatrick.
