Dustin Johnson’s bank account is looking a lot healthier after winning the Tour Championship for the first time and collecting the $15m FedEx Cup first prize.
DJ’s win in Atlanta came with the help of a bag packed full of TaylorMade’s latest gear.
The American carried the same equipment throughout the FedEx Playoffs, including a SIM Max 7-wood with 21° of loft to complement his SIM Max 3-wood (15°).
He alternates between the 7-wood, a SIM Max 5-wood (18°) and his SIM Max 3 Rescue (18°) depending on the course.
Just prior to this year’s PGA Championship DJ decided to go back to his trusty Spider Tour IB Limited putter, a decision that has clearly paid off.
His putting was remarkably consistent during the FedEx Cup run. In fact, he only missed one putt inside 5 feet at The Northern Trust and BMW combined (104/105).
The 36-year-old’s victory means SIM drivers have now won eight times on the PGA Tour since the season re-start mid June, that’s 57% of the events, and TaylorMade golf balls have won 50% of events since the re-start.
