WITB – Hot TaylorMade putter helps Sami Valimaki to first win

In just his sixth start on the European Tour, Sami Valimaki claimed his maiden European Tour victory at the 2020 Oman Open.

The Finn used a bag full of the latest TaylorMade gear to secure victory over Brandon Stone in a play-off.

It was the 21-year-old’s work with the short stick that was crucial in notching the win.

His iron and approach play were also clinical, as he made a total of 22 birdies, joint highest this week of any player, with his P790 UDI 2 iron and P750 irons.
