- Swafford, a staff player with PXG, records the first PGA Tour win, and first win on any of the major Tours around the world, for the new TaylorMade Stealth range of drivers released this month. The American had been one the last players still playing the popular PING G400 driver on a professional Tour, including his last PGA Tour win in 2020, before experimenting with the TaylorMade SIM range last year. The new model features a face made of carbon material rather than the traditional titanium.
- As evidenced by his G400 driver, Swafford is a player who sticks with what works, including previously a set of S55 irons from PING that were a mainstay for much of his career, as have been his i25 fairway woods. One to hit lots of fairway metals off the tee, Swafford’s 3- and 5-wood were released in 2014, making them ancient in the modern world of Tour golf equipment.
- Closing with an eight-under 64, Swafford ranked second for the week in Strokes Gained: Putting after making a switch to his flatstick ahead of this week in the form of a Scotty Cameron mallet model with a slant neck.
The 34-year-old’s third PGA Tour win gives Titleist golf balls a sweep of the PGA, DP World and LPGA Tours this week and an eighth win from 12 events so far this season on the world’s biggest men’s circuit.
