- Berger’s first win since successfully defending the FedEx St. Jude Classic in 2017 came at ball strikers’ paradise Colonial Country Club, where the American continued the trend of strong iron play by the eventual winner (hitting nearly 78 percent of greens in regulation) and recorded his 28th straight round of par or better on the PGA Tour. Becoming an equipment free-agent at the beginning of 2020, the 27-year-old went back to the TaylorMade irons he had used since high school that were first released in 2011. Berger telling Golf.com’s Jonathon Wall earlier this year that he found a brand new set of back-ups in his garage, before attempting to purchase more sets of the TP MC online.
- The now three-time PGA Tour winner still uses a significant number of Callaway (his previous equipment sponsor) clubs. Including his MAVRIK Sub Zero driver that is slightly different to the retail version, noted by the three diamonds marked on the neck of the club. Although details about the ‘triple diamond’ model are scarce, previous iterations – including the Epic Flash version that was later introduced at retail – have been typically more fade biased versions of the retail model.
- Winning the first event back since the PGA Tour’s coronavirus enforced hiatus by defeating Collin Morikawa in a play-off, Berger’s victory was the 10th on the world’s richest circuit for Titleist’s Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.
