WITB – Trusty putter leads McDowell to Saudi win

G Mac Witb 1

Graeme McDowell claimed his first European Tour victory in 2,037 days with the help of a fairly well worn short stick. 

The Northern Irishman ranked fifth in Strokes Gained: Putting using his Odyssey White Hot No.7 putter, which has been in his bag for more than a decade.

McDowell isn’t one to switch his equipment up on a regular basis. His Z 745 irons and Z F45 fairway woods are almost six years old.

There are, however, some shinier bits of kit in his bag, including the latest Srixon Z 785 driver and a Callaway Mavrik 3-wood.
