- Jones is one of the stick with what works crowd when it comes to his equipment, with much of his bag made up of tried and tested models, and even the newer clubs fitted with familiar shafts and setups. The 40-year-old’s Titleist irons were released 10 years ago, while his trusty utility iron was launched in 2008. The only new clubs in Jones’ bag since his 2019 Australian Open triumph are his SM8 lob wedge and TSi series driver and 3-wood, both of which are fitted with the same shafts of his previous woods.
- The two-time Australian Open winner’s victory continues the strong start to the year for Titleist’s new TSi series drivers as well as Fujikura’s Ventus range of shafts. Both products have seen a great deal of play around the world and specifically on the PGA Tour, where Jones’ fellow Aussie Adam Scott is another to opt for the TSi2 and a Ventus shaft combination. The Blue version of the shaft used by Jones offering a mid-launch and low-spin flight.
- Jones continues Titleist’s Pro V1 and Pro V1x strong start to 2021, his win the ninth from 12 wins for the company’s top golf ball models on the PGA Tour.
