Mexico’s Carlos Ortiz took home his maiden PGA Tour win on Sunday in Texas, holding off World No.1 Dustin Johnson. Here is the equipment the 29-year-old used to claim the Houston Open title.
WINNING SCORE: 13 under, 267.
DRIVER: PING G400 Max with 9° loft, fitted with Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei AV Raw 65 TX shaft.

IRONS: Titleist U500 (3-iron) and PING S55 (4-iron to pitching wedge), with True Temper Project X PXi 6.5 shafts.

PUTTER: Odyssey Stroke Lab JailBird Mini.
BALL: Titleist Pro V1x.
- Ortiz has plenty of power off the tee, however it was his approach play, scrambling and putting where he impressed most on his way to victory, ranking in the top-10 for the week for greens in regulation, scrambling and Strokes Gained: Putting. Ortiz’s irons were released by PING in 2013 and have maintained a strong following with Tour players and low handicap amateurs alike, the cast small cavity back design clearly working for the Texas resident this week.
The three-time Korn Ferry Tour winner in 2014 still opts for the G400 driver from PING, which have been replaced by the G410 and now G425, and continues a strong period of PGA Tour success for the brand’s drivers which have won four from nine events so far this season.
Ortiz adds another win for Titleist golf balls on the PGA Tour, the company now claiming four straight events and six of the completed nine events of the 2020/21 season.
QUOTE: “Obviously it's awesome to validate the work with a win, but I'm still going to be working on the same things, I have a long way to go from where I want to be and this is a step in the right direction.” – Carlos Ortiz.
