American Collin Morikawa defeated Justin Thomas on the third hole of sudden death to claim the Workday Charity Open on Sunday. Take a look at what the now two-time PGA Tour winner had in his TaylorMade bag.

- The 23-year-old’s win in the first week of back-to-back PGA Tour events at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Muirfield Village equalled a record set by Tiger Woods. Morikawa is now only the second player since Woods to have two wins before missing two cuts. The Californian’s victory came on the back of stellar approach play, ranking third in Strokes Gained: Approach to the Green and hitting nearly 74 percent of greens in regulation. Morikawa, like many PGA Tour players, employs a mixed set of irons, while rotating between two 19˚ SIM Max rescues, one built for a higher ball flight and one setup for a boring trajectory. The higher option was in the bag this week and delivered an impressive approach and eagle at the par-5 5th on Sunday that he played in six under for the week.
- Having missed a putt to extend a playoff a few weeks ago, the University of California-Berkeley graduate had questions raised of his putting under pressure. Morikawa saw no issues this week ranking first in the field for Putts per GIR with a TaylorMade Juno putter featuring a longer neck than the standard model that helps achieve a more face balanced characteristic.
- Still in his first full year as a professional, Morikawa’s second PGA Tour victory marks the same number for TaylorMade’s SIM driver family and five-piece TP5 range of golf balls from five events since the PGA Tour returned in Texas at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
QUOTE: “This is a huge kind of stepping-stone. We got No. 1 out of the way, we got No. 2, let the gates just open and let's just keep going because obviously it was a tough loss at Colonial a month ago, but I learned a lot.” – Collin Morikawa.
