After becoming the first ever player to retain the Dubai Desert Classic title, we have a look at the tools which helped Stephen Gallacher triumph at Emirates Golf Club.
The 39-year-old, who previously played a 9° R1, lofted up to 11° with his TaylorMade SLDR driver and finished in the top 10 for total driving distance.
Gallacher was one of 28 players who played the SLDR, making it the number one driver model in the event.
The Scot, who moved up to number 37 in the world rankings, also played SLDR fairways in his successful title defence.
