- Swafford’s win came courtesy of a better than average week with the putter and an increase in fairways hit on his normal numbers over the past few seasons. Finding nearly 80 percent of fairways in the Dominican Republic, the American could take advantage of his ball striking, all of which was powered by older models. Swafford’s G400 driver is now two models old in the PING life cycle, while his fairway woods were released in early 2014 and his S55 irons in November the previous. Both his fairway woods and irons in the bag for his only previous PGA Tour win in 2017.
- Having previously been on staff with PING, Callaway and Bridgestone, Swafford is among the seemingly growing number of Tour players without a full bag equipment contract in place. The 33-year-old instead carrying a non-OEM (original equipment manufacturer) branded bag, with numerous other sponsors in place.
- The former University of Georgia player continues a strong start to the new 2020/21 PGA Tour season for both PING and Titleist. His victory marking the second win from three events for PING drivers, fairway woods and irons, Vokey Design wedges and Titleist Pro V1 golf balls.
