With the collective eyes of the golfing world firmly fixed on Royal St. George's, Irishman Seamus Power went toe-to-toe with J.T. Poston over extra holes to claim his maiden PGA Tour win. Here is what the Barbasol Championship winner had in the bag.
WINNING SCORE: 21-under-par, 267.
DRIVER: PING G410 with 9˚ loft, fitted with Accra Tour Z 465 M5 shaft.
3 WOOD: PING G425 MAX with 14.5˚ loft, with Accra TZ6 Proto 75 M5 shaft.
UTILITY: TaylorMade P790 UDI, with Project X HZRDUS shaft.
IRONS: PING iBlade (3-iron) and PING Blueprint (5-iron to pitching wedge), with True Temper Project X 6.5 shafts.
WEDGES: PING Glide 3.0 (50˚SS, 54˚SS & 58˚SS), with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.
PUTTER: PING PLD 3 prototype.
BALL: Titleist Pro V1.
- Power’s first PGA Tour win is another strong result for PING, the company consistently successful particularly in the driver category across the world’s Tours in recent times. The 34-year-old who grew up playing junior golf with Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry opts for a mixture of older and new models, including his G410 driver that has been superseded by the extremely popular G425. Power also uses Accra shafts in his driver and 3-wood, the brand once among the most popular on the PGA Tour and part of the UST Mamiya family.
- Power found nearly 80 percent of greens in regulation for the week including missing just five over the course of the weekend. Playing a mixed bag of irons, Power’s iBlade 3-iron is a hollow body iron similar to his TaylorMade utility iron, while his PING Blueprint irons are the company’s first ever full forged blade model designed only for the top ball strikers.
Power was in an all Titleist golf ball play-off at Keene Trace, and his win is the 22nd of the year for the brand on the PGA Tour from 31 events.
QUOTE: “To me it's all perspective. I view myself as extremely lucky. I'm 34 and I've yet to work a day in my life. So every time I get to play a tournament or play an extra year on Tour, to me it's a massive bonus.” – Seamus Power.
