  • Twice a winner on smaller Tours in Africa, Lawrence’s win earns him a full DP World Tour card and spot at The Open held at St. Andrews next year. Playing a mixture of older and new models from PING, Lawrence’s win continues an extremely strong year for the brand’s G425 driver, which has been used for victories across all major Tours by both contracted and non-contracted players.
  • Clearly comfortable with sticking with what works, the 24-year-old’s iBlade irons were released by PING August 2016 and have been replaced a number of times with new models. The shafts Lawrence plays in his irons and wedges may have a unique look thanks to a Black Onyx coating, but they are the tried and tested True Temper Dynamic Gold that has been a favourite of the world’s best players for decades.

  • Lawrence’s win is the first of the DP World Tour era, and with the remaining South African events cancelled will hold that distinction until the circuit resumes in the Middle East in January. The South African’s win is the 22nd on the European/DP World Tour in 2021 for Titleist golf balls.
