Jordan Spieth returned to the winners’ circle with a final round 66 to claim the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio. Here is what the Texan had in the bag.
WINNING SCORE: 18-under-par, 270.
DRIVER: Titleist TSi3 with 10˚ loft, fitted with Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 X shaft.
3-WOOD: Titleist TS2 with 15˚ loft, with Fujikura Ventus Blue 7 X shaft.
HYBRID: Titleist 818 H2 with 21˚ loft, with Graphite Design Tour AD DI 95 X Hybrid shaft.
IRONS: Titleist T100 (4-iron to 9-iron), with True Temper Project X 6.5 shafts.
WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 (46˚-10˚ F Grind, 52˚-08˚ F Grind & 56˚-10˚ S Grind) and Titleist Vokey Design Proto (60˚ T Grind), with True Temper Project X shafts.
PUTTER: Scotty Cameron 009.
BALL: Titleist Pro V1x.
- Spieth’s win continues the exceptional run on Tour for the new TSi range of drivers for Titleist and Fujikura’s Ventus shafts. The new range of drivers contains four models, with the TSi3 that Spieth uses the most popular with the world’s best players, with all models featuring a unique face material – ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium – that was used in the Mars Rover, while Fujikura’s shafts have become on the most used in drivers and fairways so far in 2021.
- Spieth’s scrambling and putting, unsurprisingly, was the catalyst for his win, his short game clubs largely unchanged in terms of specifications for much of his time on Tour. Spieth uses fairly low bounce across his wedges compared to many of his fellow players, particularly his lob wedge. Meanwhile, despite one or two tournaments with different putters in the bag, Spieth has stayed loyal to his rusty Scotty Cameron 009 putter that he was partially inspired to use as a young player by Aussies Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy.
- Spieth’s win gives Titleist golf balls a clean sweep of the weekend alongside Patty Tavatanakit winning the ANA Inspiration, while his win is also the 15th on the PGA Tour in 2021.
