What equipment did the American use to win the 2016 US Open? Here our Dustin Johnson WITB reveals the clubs he used to do it.
What equipment did the American use to win the 2016 US Open? We take a peek inside his bag with this Dustin Johnson WITB to check out the gear that earned him his first major, and helped him leapfrog Rory McIlroy to become the new world number three.
Key to the American’s success was undoubtedly his TaylorMade M1 driver, which he used to hit some huge drives, including 378 yards off the 1st, 365 yards on the 12th and crucially driving to the fringe on the 2nd, which gave him an early two-putt birdie to settle his nerves.
You’ll also note Johnson is not using a set of blades as many pros do, but instead swapped out his old TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB irons in favour of the PSi irons at the start of the year, which gives him slightly more forgiveness in a workable players’ iron.
