- Smith made a number of changes to his setup since winning The Players Championship back in March, with a number specifically for this week's hard and fast conditions. Among them was the Queenslander's change of lob wedge from a higher bounce M Grind to a T Grind of the SM9 model that he gave the first Tour win to in January in Hawaii.
Another change for Smith came at the top of the bag with the 28-year-old putting Titleist's newest model TSR series into play. Having previously played the TSi3, Smith has opted for the TSR3 with the same loft and shaft setup as his previous driver. There is little information about the new models as they are still in the brand's 'Tour Seeding' stage, but Smith gives them a second PGA Tour win after J.T. Poston won with the same model at the John Deere Classic two weeks ago.
A change specifically made for this week saw Smith remove his trusty 7-wood from the bag and replace it with a club marked the same as one he already had in the bag. Smith had two Mizuno driving irons in the bag stamped as 3-irons, with presumed different lofts and shaft lengths to make one play close to a 3-iron.
Smith's win gives Titleist golf balls a clean sweep of the men's major championships in 2022, with three of the four won with the Pro V1x and Scottie Scheffler's Masters win coming with the Pro V1.
