WITB – Cameron Champ powers to victory with PING

Cameron Champ Witb

Cameron Champ claimed his second PGA Tour title at the Safeway Open and, somewhat unsurprisingly, it was his power and precision from the tee that was crucial in securing the victory.

The longest hitter on the PGA Tour for the 2019 season was utterly dominant with the driver in hands around the Silverado Resort & Spa course.

Using his PING G410 LST he ranked first in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, first in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green, first in driving distance and hit the longest drive of the tournament, which measured a whopping 372 yards.

The American’s iron play was also in fine form. He carries PING’s latest Blueprint muscle back design and also an i500 3-iron and iBlade 4-iron. He managed to find 53 of 72 greens in regulation across the four rounds.

The 24-year-old’s game, however, isn’t all about unbridled power. He also posses a deft touch around the greens. Using his two PING Glide Forged wedges and a TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge he ranked first in the scrambling stats, getting up and down 84.21% of the time.
