WITB – Laser-like driving accuracy helps Sepp Straka to maiden win

Sepp Straka Witb

Sepp Straka became the first Austrian-born player to win on the PGA Tour, and that win can largely be attributed to his precision from the tee.

Using his new TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver, Straka ranked first in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee and first in the driving accuracy stats, finding 83.93% of fairways.

• REVIEW - “Power shines through with Stealth”

The 28-year-old didn’t simply drive show, as his putting also played a major role in securing the dough. He ranked fourth in Strokes Gained: Putting using his Odyssey Stroke Lab Tuttle putter. 

• Srixon Z-STAR Diamond - FIRST LOOK!

Straka, like Brooks Koepka, recently made the switch to Srixon’s new Z-STAR Diamond golf ball, which blends the performance benefits of the brand’s Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV models.

With the help of his Srixon ZX7 irons and Cleveland RTX ZipCore wedges, the Austrian birdied three of his last five holes en-route to victory.
