In his first four events on the PGA Tour in 2018 he ranked 124th in the category but was a whole nine strokes better than the field average to lead at 10.027.

In fact, his total of 100 putts for four rounds was his lowest ever total on the PGA Tour.

The 28-year-old put in a new putter this week – the TaylorMade TP Collection Black Copper Soto Prototype and we have the details of it below.

The heads feature adjustable sole weights to help golfers find their optimum setup.

They’re fitted with TaylorMade’s PureRoll insert – an aluminium insert for a firm feel.
