The Golf Clubs That PGA Champion Justin Thomas Uses
Lifting the Wanamaker Trophy for a second time, new PGA Champion Justin Thomas was another success story for Titleist, using 14 of the brand's clubs and the Pro V1x golf ball to claim his second major title at Southern Hills after overcoming fellow brand ambassador Will Zalatoris in a dramatic playoff.
Thomas excelled across the board in Tulsa, finishing tied second in greens in regulation (69.44%), fourth in proximity to the hole and second in Strokes Gained: Putting (+6.313) on the demanding layout.
Justin Thomas' Bag
- Titleist Pro V1x golf ball
- TSi3 driver (10)
- TS3 fairway (15)
- 915 Fd fairway (18)
- T100 4-iron
- 621.JT tour prototype irons (5-9)
- Vokey Design SM9 wedges (46.10F, 52.12F, 56.14F, Wedgeworks 60.06K)
- Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5 Knuckle Neck tour prototype putter
Thomas first put his TSi3 driver in play at the start of this year at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. When asked about his setup, Titleist’s Director of Player Promotions J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, said: “We were able to go up in loft to the 10-degree head by utilising the SureFit hosel in the D•1 setting (-0.75 degrees loft, standard lie), which allows him to hit those flighted shots we saw down the stretch Sunday, while still being able to control the spin when he hits the big ones.”
The world number five also had four SM9 Vokey wedges in play, hitting them to an average of 14 feet from 125-150 yards across all four rounds. When first putting SM9 in the bag, Thomas was focused on the control they gave him, saying: “For someone who likes to flight my wedges and control my spin a lot, I need to be able to see that ball hit the windows. I’m looking both low and high, but especially low. For me, it’s nice to be able to feel like I hit it and I don't look up and it’s coming high and floaty.”
Amongst the players who finished tied fifth or better, Titleist had six players who trusted the Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball, four who played the TSi driver, six using at least one Vokey Design SM9 wedge and four using a Scotty Cameron Putter.
