American Kurt Kitayama collected his second European Tour title at the Oman Open. We take a look in his bag.

Kurt Kitayama What’s In The Bag?

In a matter of months, Kurt Kitayama has collected his second European Tour victory at the Oman Open. The American, who progressed through all three stages of Qualifying School fairly recently, now has two wins from 11 starts with his first coming in December at the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open.

He showed remarkable resilience to comeback on a marathon Sunday in which he had to play 33 holes. He started the day seven shots back and had an eagle and six birdies to get within touching distance. In fact he was still two shots back with three to go but birdied 16 and 17 to get into the clubhouse at seven-under. Nobody could catch him.

What did the American use to achieve the win? We take a look here.

Kitayama used his new TaylorMade M5 driver to great effect all week as he averaged 328 yards off the tee putting him 1st in that statistic. The new driver has their Speed Injected Twist Face in which drivers have resin injected into the heads to make them legal. To learn more about the technology in the M5 and M6, click here.

His fairway wood is an older model, a TaylorMade M2 and he also carries the new TaylorMade GAPR Mid utility iron. All of these clubs have Graphite Design shafts.

Shifting to the irons, Kitayama uses a combo set of TaylorMade’s. His 4-iron is a P750 whilst the rest of the bag, from five-iron to pitching wedge, are the bladed P730’s. He used each of them to hit 71% of greens throughout the week.

He carries three wedges, two TaylorMade Milled Grind models with 52 and 56 degrees of loft respectively. He also carries a 60 degree TaylorMade HI-Toe wedge.

Finally his only club in the bag not made by TaylorMade is the putter, which is an Odyssey Toulon Design Atlanta.

He ranked 1st for the week in putts per GIR with 1.71 and second in Strokes Gained Putting.

His ball is the new 2019 TP5x model.
