WITB – Mixed bag helps Richard Bland to maiden victory

Richard Bland Witb

Richard Bland secured an emotional first win at the Betfred British Masters using equipment from various manufacturers.

The first weapon in his arsenal is a 2016 TaylorMade M2 driver, with which he ranked first in the driving accuracy stats, finding 78.33% of fairways.

• THE BEST HYBRID OF 2021?

Off the tee the Englishman also relies upon a TaylorMade SIM Max 3-wood and a fairly well-worn TaylorMade Burner Superfast 5-wood.

Across the four rounds, Bland’s iron play was in fine form. He ranked third in Strokes Gained: Approach using a mix of two Titleist U500 utility irons and his Honma TWorld Proto irons.

• Which Titleist iron is right for you?

Around the greens the 48-year-old uses two TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedges, while on the putting surfaces he puts his trust in an Odyssey Tank Crusier 7 putter.

The final piece of his equipment puzzle at the Belfry was the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball.
