Despite two back nine bogies on Sunday, Joel Dahmen signed for a final round 70 and one shot win at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship. Here is what the first time PGA Tour winner had in the bag.

- Dahmen’s maiden Tour win came on the back of solid approach play and extremely tidy putting for the week. The 33-year-old has changed putters and grip techniques quite regularly throughout his time on Tour, opting for a Scotty Cameron mallet and cross handed method this week, helping him rank fourth for Putts per GIR, while his hybrid is perhaps his most interesting club in the bag. Released in August 2012, PING’s Anser hybrid developed a strong following on Tour and remains in some other players’ bags. A more traditional shaped option than PING’s previous hybrids, the Anser was built for control with forgiveness – perfect for better players. Dahmen even using the stock PING graphite shaft.
- The cancer survivor’s victory is yet another with a PING driver by a non-contracted player. A member of PXG’s Tour staff, Dahmen’s G425 driver has proven extremely popular with his fellow Tour players since its launch earlier this year. Dahmen playing the LST version offering lower spin.
- Dahmen was part of a double win weekend on the PGA Tour for Titleist’s golf balls alongside Billy Horschel, the duo adding the 13th and 14th wins for the company’s Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls in 2021 on the world’s biggest stage.
