- A fairly long driver of the golf ball, Hojgaard interestingly continues to use a driver that has been superseded twice in the TaylorMade line-up. In the altitude of Crans-Sur-Sierre, the Dane average 336.5 yards from the tee on Sunday, part of an extremely impressive statistical performance. The 20-year-old was in the top-10 for six of the seven key stats kept by the European Tour, Hojgaard also 20th in driving accuracy.
Hojgaard mostly sticks with what works, as is the case with his driver, however he is prone to a putter change from time-to-time despite already collecting three European Tour wins before reaching 21 years of age. This week’s win came with a blade putter, whereas Hojgaard has typically opted for mallet models in the past. His Scotty Cameron flatstick a very simple milled steel putter with a plumber’s neck.
- Like an ever-growing number of his fellow Tour players, Hojgaard carries wedges with an expanded toe area and grooves that run across the entire face. Although most of his competitors who carry such a club do so with their highest lofted wedge, Hojgaard interestingly has all three of his speciality wedges in this setup.
Hojgaard’s victory gives TaylorMade golf balls a fifth win on the European Tour in 2021.
