- Simpson used a mixture of old and new Titleist models on his way to victory at the raucous Phoenix Open. The 34-year-old’s 5-wood, hybrids and wedges are all older models from his sponsor, however, Simpson does play the recently released 620MB irons. The former US Open winner had been loyal to the company’s 680MB blade irons that were released in 2003 for almost his entire professional career before opting for Titleist’s latest blade.
- The World No.7 uses more clubs with headcovers than the majority of his fellow PGA Tour pros, Simpson’s 23.5˚ hybrid that effectively replaces a 4-iron in his set fitted with the same steel shaft as his irons, an even greater rarity on Tour.
One of the players most affected by the anchoring ban that took away his favoured PING belly putter (which he famously broke after the ban to force a change to the short putter) Simpson’s work on the greens has drastically improved since switching to an arm-lock style putter, ranking 12th in Strokes Gained: Putting this week.
A career-long Titleist staff member, Simpson’s sixth win on golf’s biggest stage is the 13th for Titleist’s Pro V1 range of golf balls this season from 17 events.
QUOTE: “He's (Finau) one of my good friends on Tour. We've talked about playing together in team events as partners. I'm comfortable with him. I love his caddie, Greg. And so that part's hard. I mean, we're after the same thing. You never want to see a guy mess up.” – Webb Simpson.
