- McDowell is a long-time member of Srixon’s Tour staff, the 2010 US Open winner’s bag consisting mostly of the company’s Srixon and Cleveland brands. The 40-year-old’s Z 785 driver is the same model Hannah Green used to capture her first major in 2019 and is the smaller and lower launching option compared to the Z 585 used by Shane Lowry to win the 2019 Open Championship at the course McDowell learnt the game, Royal Portrush.
- Among the best putters on Tour when he is on, McDowell continues to trust his Odyssey White Hot #7 that was originally released in 2006 and he has had in the bag for over 10 years. McDowell’s putter is slightly different to the retail version of the mid-mallet putter with a plumbers neck, featuring a dark finish and a White Hot XG insert.
