  • Finau continues a good run for PING players, winning his third PGA Tour title on the same day fellow PING staffer Brooke Henderson won her second major title. Finau does opt for some more recent models than the Canadian though, with the current G425 driver a mainstay in his bag and the American one of the few players using the Blueprint irons. Designed after requests for a forged blade, the Blueprint is an exceptionally small head with minimal offset and is a model only for the most exact of ball strikers.
  • The 32-year-old does carry one club that he seemingly cannot fathom getting rid of, a Nike Vapor Fly Pro 3-iron that acts as a driving iron/utility bridging the gap between his 4-iron and 3-wood and a favourite off the tee on tight driving holes. Also used by Brooks Koepka, this model features a hollow-body design and despite its popularity with some of the best players in the world is a hard to find piece of equipment from the final stages of Nike’s club production days.

  • Finau’s putting was long considered the area holding him back from winning more often, but he has seen great improvement since making a model switch late last year. His PLD Anser 2D putter features a wider body than a traditional Anser 2 putter, and presumably carries a heavier head, while it is fitted with a heavy belly putter shaft cut to 37 inches and a longer grip.
  • Finau’s win in Minnesota is the 24th from 32 events on the PGA Tour in 2022 for Titleist’s Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.
