Andrew Martin’s final round 61 included a world record for the number of eagles and secured him victory in the second The Players Series event. Here is what he had in the bag at Bonnie Doon.
WINNING SCORE: 18-under-par, 266.

- Martin’s four eagles on the front nine equalled a world record, with three coming in a row thanks to a solid all-round game. Martin’s driver is a rare Triple Diamond model, which was specially designed with a more pleasing appearance for certain Tour players and a slightly different centre of gravity location than the other Mavrik Sub Zero driver sold at retail by Callaway.
- The former Australian Amateur champion has a unique mixture of shafts featured throughout his bag. The Fujikura Speeder in Martin’s driver is an “older” model in the shaft world, while the same brand’s Ventus in his 3-wood is one of the latest flavours of the month on the world’s professional Tours. Interestingly, Martin goes from X flex shafts in his woods to 6.0 Project X iron shafts, then plays wedge shafts that are lighter in weight than those in his irons.
The 36-year-old was part of an immensely strong week for Titleist at Bonnie Doon, with all bar one player inside the top-20 using the company’s golf balls for the week.
