The Clubs That Helped Justin Thomas To Win The PGA Championship
Justin Thomas won our hearts and his first major title PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club, this being his fourth of the season. This tournament witnessed the sheer determination he has and the command he posses off the tee and on the grass.
Justin’s average was 328 yards off the tee and to achieve this laurel he used Titleist 917DF2 driver (with a Mitsubishi Diamana BF60 TX shaft). He amazed everyone when he posted a strokes gained/putting mark of 1.818 for the 72 holes and an impressive 2.397 stokes gained/putting which was way better than his .224 mark for the season on his journey to win the coveted title.
The most spectacular shot that captured everyone’s attention was the colossal 221-yard 7-iron to 14 feet, 6 inches that he converted for birdie on the par-3 17th hole that gave him enough juice to survive a final-hole bogey. This beauty of a shot was struck with Titleist’s prototype 718 MB 7-iron and the putt was made with a Scotty Cameron by Titleist Futura X5 which is a wing –back mallet, which we have already seen the champion use in the FedEx Cup Playoffs in Barclays last year and he is in love with it since then.
If we look closely in his bag we see that there are a few changes in the collection. He has replaced a Titleist T-MB 2-iron with a Titleist 915Fd 5-wood and putting a new Titleist Vokey SM6 60-degree wedge in the bag. All thanks to these small changes he has made history and has added his name in to the list of legends who had the honor of hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy as the PGA champion.
Justin Louis Thomas was born in April 29 1993. In May 2018, Thomas became the 21st player to top the Official World Golf Ranking.
