For the 1st time in a long time, this week’s PGA Tour victor, 2nd year pro Lee Hodges, won the 3M Open with a club set-up featuring a single manufacturer — Titleist. Heck, all of his equipment was current model gear, which is also an anomaly.
- He put a hybrid in his bag, as did J.T. Poston, who should have finished 2nd to Lee’s 1st place finish. But J.T. dunked his 21-degree into the lake on 18, unlike Hodges who didn’t need to pull his, playing it safe on his way to a 7-shot win.
- Vokey wedges. No shit. Winners only play the best. And Hodges is now a PGA Tour winner!
- Lee has spent some time testing shafts in his irons. How do we know? Unlike the previous half-dozen Tour winners, he didn’t play with Dynamic Golf Tour Issue shafts in his irons. He went with KBS Tour shafts. Good call, at least this week.
