Graeme McDowell returned to the winner’s circle after 1,232 days without a victory on the PGA Tour, using a set of clubs that has remained largely unchanged in recent years.
The Northern Irishman's final round 69 was enough to see him finish one-shot clear of Chris Stroud and Mackenzie Hughes to claim his 4th title on the PGA Tour.
McDowell does not change is equipment very often but two relatively new additions to his bag are Srixon’s latest Z 785 driver and a new Ping G410 hybrid.
His Z 745 irons and Z F45 fairway woods are almost five years old but the 39-year-old doesn’t look set to change them anytime soon, even after testing the Srixon’s latest Z 785 models.
He ranked 16th in greens in regulation for the week, finding the putting surface 72.22% of the time using his trusted irons.
Like his irons, McDowell has opted to stick with Cleveland’s RTX 2.0 and 588 RTX wedges instead of switching to the brand’s latest RTX 4 models.
Despite his solid all-round play in the Dominican Republic, it was McDowell’s putting that was key to his success. Using his Odyssey White Hot No.7 putter, which has been in his bags for more than a decade, he ranked first in putts per GIR.
