- The 24-year-old’s first win on the PGA Tour came through a strong performance with every club in the bag. Ranking inside the top-20 for driving distance for the week, Burns also sat inside the top-5 for Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green and Putting. The Louisiana native opting for an older model Odyssey O-Works #7 putter with a small slant neck, that he has used for the majority of his time on Tour, and older model MAVRIK woods and Apex Pro Hybrid that clearly are clubs he is comfortable with.
- Burns is one of the many Callaway staffers currently using the APEX TCB irons on Tour, a limited retail release that is available through Callaway’s custom orders department. Designed explicitly for elite golfers and the best players in the world, TCB stands for Tour Cavity Back, with the irons featuring a thin sole, soft feel and engineered for ultimate ball flight control.
- Burns has used Callaway’s Chrome Soft X all year, and gives the range its second consecutive win on the PGA Tour after Marc Leishman shared in Zurich Classic winning honours last week. Burns’ victory is also one of three for Odyssey putters around the world this past weekend.
