The amazing run of form continued for Jin Young Ko this past week, the Korean winning her third LPGA Tour title of the year at the Founders Cup. Here is what Ko had in the bag.
WINNING SCORE: 18-under-par, 266.
DRIVER: Titleist TSi3 with 9° loft, fitted with Graphite Design Tour AD IZ shaft.
3 WOOD: Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero with 15° loft, with TPT Golf shaft.
5 WOOD: Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero with 18° loft, with TPT Golf shaft.
HYBRIDS: Titleist TSi2 (21° and 24°), with Aerotech SteelFiber shafts.
IRONS: Bridgestone Tour B 201CB (6-iron to pitching wedge), with Aerotech SteelFiber shafts.
WEDGES: PING Glide Forged (50°, 52° & 56°), with Nippon N.S. Pro shafts.
PUTTER: Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5.
BALL: Titleist Pro V1.
- Ko tends to be a player that mixes and matches brands in her bag and makes fairly regular changes, particularly with the driver and putter. The 10-time LPGA Tour winner has had Titleist’s TSi3 driver in the bag for a number of months now, while her Scotty Cameron is a recent addition and a very successful one. Ko put the new flatstick in play just over a month ago when at home in Korea, and since returning to the U.S. has finished inside the top-10 four times with two wins.
Recently adding a second hybrid to her bag, Ko’s Bridgestone irons are not offered in the U.S. or Australian markets, while she interestingly carries a highest lofted wedge of just 56°. The combination of hybrids, irons and three wedges helping her to once again put on an extremely impressive ball striking performance.
Ko’s win is the third from the last four events on the LPGA Tour for Titleist golf balls and part of a three win weekend for the brand across the European, PGA and LPGA Tours
