Lee Westwood overcame a bad back to close out the DP World Tour Championship with three consecutive rounds of 68 to claim his third Order of Merit title on the European Tour. Here is what the Englishman had in the bag.
DRIVER: PING G425 LST with 10.5˚ loft, fitted with Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei AV Raw Orange 65TX shaft.
3 WOOD: PING G425 Max with 14.5˚ loft, with Aldila NV 2KXV Green shaft.
HYBRID: PING G425 with 19˚ loft, with Aldila Tour Green Hybrid 85 X shaft.
IRONS: PING i210 (4-iron to pitching wedge), with Ping JZ Stiff w/Cushin shafts.
WEDGES: PING I210 U (50˚ & 54˚) and PING Glide Forged (60˚), with Ping JZ Stiff w/Cushin shafts.
PUTTER: PING Sigma 2 Fetch.
BALL: Titleist Pro V1x.
- Westwood’s success in the season long Race to Dubai caps an impressive couple of weeks for his equipment sponsor PING. Following a week where PING equipment was used by winners on both the PGA Tour and LPGA Tour, Westwood and DP World Tour Championship winner Matthew Fitzpatrick give the company’s i210 irons a fourth win in two weeks. With the two Englishmen also using irons fitted with PING shafts, a rare sight on the world’s professional Tours.
- A PING player for his entire career and even as a young amateur, Westwood uniquely uses two i210 U wedges in his setup. The two gap/approach wedges bent to different lofts and with a larger head and cavity back design, playing more similarly to many of the PING wedges the 47-year-old has used throughout his career.
Westwood and Fitzpatrick combined to give Titleist golf balls the Order of Merit and tournament win double this week, the company’s Pro V1 range of golf balls used by the last five straight European Tour tournament winners.
