- Thomas’ victory and return to the top spot on the world rankings was driven by strong iron and wedge play throughout the week at TPC Southwind, the American ranking in the top-1 for Strokes Gained: Approach, Strokes Gained: Around the Green, Greens in Regulation and Scrambling. Thomas’ tools for his approach play have remained fairly similar throughout his PGA Tour, with his wedges perhaps the most unique. The 27-year-old’s 46˚, 52˚ and 60˚ wedges all carry lofts measured to .5˚ as a result of Thomas practicing and dialling in carry distances. Having returned to the Tour a number of years ago after a period of working on his game, Thomas’ wedge lofts were discovered to be different to what was stamped on the heads but kept due to the major champion favouring his new distances. Thomas’ 60˚ is the newest model of his wedges, the WedgeWorks prototype carrying a T Grind that was recently added to Titleist’s retail offerings.
An important lesson brought to you by @justinthomas34 on groove decay and groove management. Here is the gamer set of Justin Thomas and as you can see it’s a awesome collection of carefully selected wedges to have spin where you need it and where you don’t. The 46 is an very old yet new option. His last 47.5 he had in the bag for so long he is now bringing out his 2019 @themasters model because he finally had spin decay on the old 47.5. The 52.5 is still in good shape, still a vintage wedge. The 57 and 60.5 are kept fresh because spin is needed for control in these two wedges. Take a look at your own setup and see if you are approaching your wedges the same way. Spin is very important, the best in the world manage this well...shouldn’t you? @titleist @vokeywedges @titleistca @titleist_korea @titleistukireland @titleist_anz @titleistsea @titleist_japan #vokey #sm7 #sm8 #invokewetrust #pga #pgatour #golf #wedges #spin
- The American’s 13th PGA Tour win is also the 13th for Titleist’s Pro V1 range of golf balls in 2020 and the fourth since the Tour’s restart in June.
