Lee Westwood Witb Abu Dhabi

The Englishman claimed his 25th European Tour title after finish two shots clear of compatriots Matthew Fitzpatrick and Tommy Fleetwood, and Frenchman Victor Perez.

• Westwood targets Ryder Cup spot as he equals sensational record

As you would expect from one of the greatest drivers in recent European Tour history, Westwood had his ball on a string using his PING G410 Plus driver. He ranked fourth in Stroked Gained: Off the Tee thanks to his incredible accuracy (also fourth in those stats) and an average driving distance of 300.5 yards.

• FIRST REVIEW! Ping G410 Plus driver

Despite often being seen as the weakest part of his game, the 46-year-old’s putting was in fine form across the four rounds at Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Using his PING Sigma 2 Fetch he ranked third in Strokes Gained: Putting and led the field in most birdies, recording 22 for the week.

• REVIEW – PING Blueprint irons

Westwood’s stellar ball striking was also on full display using his PING i210 irons, finding 83.3% of greens in regulation.

Rounding out his equipment set-up is a PING Glide Forged wedge, G410 fairway and hybrid, the Titleist Pro V1x and some fresh looking FootJoy Pro/SL shoes.
