- Smith has joined the growing number of PGA Tour players to insert a 7-wood into their set makeup in recent times to allow for higher lofted approach shots on longer holes, while Leishman, who had long been part of the same group, has recently opted for a hybrid instead. The club between players’ 3-wood and longest irons is often course dependent, while both Aussies also carry a utility 4-iron in their bags.
- As one of the best wedge players in the game, Smith’s short game setup is interesting to note. Despite carrying four wedges in the quite traditional 42˚, 52˚, 56˚ and 60˚ lofts, it is worth noting Smith’s relatively low bounce in each wedge that clearly matches his game and preferences. Leishman meanwhile carries one less wedge and has quite consistent bounce across his wedges, his extra club coming in the form of a second 4-iron.
- Smith’s third PGA Tour win was part of a six win weekend for Titleist golf balls on professional Tours, including the PGA, European and LPGA Tours, while Leishman gives Callaway’s Chrome Soft X its second PGA Tour victory for 2021.
