WITB - Mixed bag helps Casey retain Valspar title

Paul Casey Witb

Paul Casey successfully defended his Valspar Championship crown using a mixed set of clubs that has remained largely unchanged since his 2018 win.

The Englishman led the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green at the incredibly demanding Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort.

Off the tee he uses a TaylorMade M4 driver and a TaylorMade 2017 M1 3-wood. He average 306.6 yards for the week, with his longest driver measuring out at 348 yards.

• Under Armour HOVR Drive delivers full-round comfort

Despite having been spotted testing out Honma irons this year, the 41-year-old has stuck with the same Mizuno MP-5 muscle back irons that he used since Nike left the hardware market in 2017.

• Mizuno releases JPX919 Hot Metal PRO irons

He also carries Mizuno MP-25 3-iron and recently put a new JPX 919 Hot Metal Pro 4-iron into his bag.

Apart from the new 4-iron, the only other new additions to Casey’s bag are his wedges. Last year he used the Titleist Vokey SM6s but now games the latest SM7 models and also a prototype Vokey lob wedge.
