J.J. Spaun held on to win his maiden PGA Tour title on Sunday in Texas, with Aussie Matt Jones sharing second two-shots back. Here is what the Valero Texas Open champion had in his bag.

- Contracted to Srixon, but only playing the brand's irons and Cleveland wedges, Spaun is in the "use what works" camp for the rest of his bag. The American favouring an older model TaylorMade fairway wood that was extremely popular on the world's Tours. His Callaway 5-wood also not the current model and featuring a smaller head and low spin profile that perfectly suits the needs of Tour players in the high lofted wood space.
Spaun's PING G425 driver is another popular piece of equipment for both the company's players and non-contracted golfers. The Fujikura Ventus shaft in his driver without question the most used shaft on the PGA Tour and offered in a variety of colours that signify bend profile. The low flight Black model the most popular.
Srixon's ZX7 irons are widely used on the PGA Tour, with players like Scottie Scheffler even carrying a 4-iron of the model at times over the past year, while it is also the iron of choice for Brooks Koepka, Hannah Green and Minjee Lee.
The 31-year-old's win is the 11th from 15 PGA Tour events in 2022 for Titleist's range of Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.
