WITB - Patrick Cantlay scrambles to ZOZO win with Vokey wedges

Patrick Cantlay Zozo Witb

Patrick Cantlay claimed his third PGA Tour victory at the ZOZO Championships following a masterclass in scrambling and short game finesse.

The American ranked first in scrambling across the four rounds at Sherwood Country Club with the help of his four Titleist Vokey wedges.

He only failed to get up-and-down twice, carding his only two bogeys of the tournament during a final round 65.

It wasn’t simply the 28-year-old’s short game, however, that was in fine form. He ranked third in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green because of his solid play from the tee and when approaching the greens.

Cantlay is yet to switch to Titleist’s newest TSi metalwoods, instead continuing to game his TS3 driver and a well-worn 915F 3-wood.

• 'I was the first-ever person to win with a Titleist Pro V1'

In fact, almost everything in Cantlay’s bag is a few years old, including his Titleist 718 AP2 irons and 816 H2 hybrid.

Rounding out his equipment set-up is a Scotty Cameron GSS prototype putter and the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball.
