- The 29-year-old continues the strong run of success for PING on the world’s Tours, including delivering back-to-back European Tour wins for the American manufacturer. Veerman’s irons are the yet to be released i59, which is rumoured to replace the extremely popular i210 irons, while also paying tribute to the S59, one of PING’s most successful iron sets. The set is also used by fellow European Tour winner Viktor Hovland in part of his iron set, Veerman’s Forged Pro Glide wedges also listed on the brand’s website as a prototype model. In something of a rarity on Tour, Veerman plays the same shafts in terms of weight and flex through his entire wedge set as his irons, the very stiff and butt heavy KBS C-Taper a rare choice for wedges among the world’s best.
Unlike many of his fellow PING staff members who have won of late with a PLD prototype putter, Veerman opts for the company’s new Sigma2 Tyne insert model. Featuring a soft feel, the wingback mallet helped the former Texas A&M student athlete to one of his best putting weeks on Tour, including just 28 putts in his Sunday 68. Veerman’s model fitted with a double bend hosel.
- Despite being his first win, Veerman’s prizemoney at the Czech Masters is only his third best of the season, he also gives Titleist golf balls a fourth consecutive win on the European Tour.
