Webb Simpson What’s In The Bag - Take a look at the clubs Webb Simpson used to win The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass
Webb Simpson What’s In The Bag
Webb Simpson has moved up to 20th in the world rankings following his impressive four-shot victory at The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, Florida.
The American carded a final round of 73 to win just shy of $2m, finishing ahead of Charl Schwartzel, Jimmy Walker and Xander Schauffele.
Simpson completed his emphatic win with mostly Titleist clubs, including the 917D2 driver, 718 MB irons and the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. He also uses a 2017 TaylorMade fairway wood and a long Odyssey putter, which he runs up his forearm in an armlock-style hold and combines with a claw grip.
It worked to good effect as he led the field in Strokes Gained: Putting for the week, holing a string of lengthy putts, especially on Friday where he shot a round of 63, gaining over nine shots on the field on the greens during the week.
Simpson won the US Open using the belly putter, but was forced to stopped using it in 2016 when the anchoring ban came into effect, and struggled to find a method that worked for him.
Interestingly, Simpson carries two fairway woods and two hybrids (one with a steel shaft), with a 5-iron being the longest iron in his bag, yet he uses muscleback irons.
Simpson was carrying some form into The Players, having recorded four top tens already in the 2018 PGA Tour Season.
