American John Catlin claimed his second European Tour title in a month at the Irish Open on Sunday. Here is what the 29-year-old had in the bag.
WINNING SCORE: 10 under, 270.
DRIVER: PING G410 Plus, fitted with Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana shaft.
3-WOOD: TaylorMade SIM, with Fujikura Ventus Blue shaft.
IRONS: Srixon Z-U85 (3- and 4-iron), with Graphite Design Tour AD-DI shafts and Srixon Z-Forged.
WEDGES: Cleveland RTX-4 (52°, 54°, 58° & 62°), with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue shafts.
PUTTER: Odyssey O-Works Black #1.
BALL: Srixon Z-Star.
- An extremely straight driver and solid putter, Catlin’s approach play was the difference maker in his final round 64 that delivered his second European Tour win this month on Sunday. Catlin found 83 percent of the greens in regulation during the final round to lead the field in the category, converting seven of his birdie chances. Catlin opts for two long iron replacements before moving into Srixon’s blade model irons.
- Despite being a member of Srixon’s Tour staff and playing the company’s irons, golf ball and Cleveland wedges, Catlin’s G410 driver means a double win weekend for PING. The American and compatriot Hudson Swafford on the PGA Tour providing the company with a clean sweep from two non-contracted players.
- Now ranked inside the top-100 on the world rankings for the first time in his career, Catlin’s two wins in September make it three in total for Srixon’s Z-Star golf balls on the European Tour in 2020.
