Hannah Holden has been crunching some numbers to find out which equipment had the most wins in the season just ended. She reveals all in All the Gear
Hello. It’s been an exciting week as I got the opportunity to check out the new Ecco Biom Cool Pro shoes whilst playing Le Golf National.
First look at the new @ECCO_GOLF Biom Cool Pro 👀🏌🏽♀️⛳️
The first shoe from ECCO to include Biom natural motion technology, Tri-fi-grip, fluidform technology and a Gore-tex surround.

The shoes combine a whole host of technologies we have seen in previous Ecco models to provide a new level of performance.
As we are accustomed to in all Ecco shoes it is made from premium Yak leather. The shoe also features Biom natural motion technology, a gore-tex surround as well as the tri-fi-grip outsole.
The Tpu Exhaust Grid, which is built into the midsole, has large angled openings. This is designed to draw air in, channelling it to the sole of the foot allowing moisture and heat to escape, for ultimate breathability.
The shoes will be available in August and will set you back £210 a pair. Keep an eye on NCG for a full review.
In other shoe news the Adidas Tour 360 XT Twin Boa has been revealed.
This is designed to offer adjustability across two separate zones. The upper zone provides a secure fit around the collar and prevent power leakage throughout the swing, while the lower zone provides micro-adjustability from the middle to bottom instep for customised fit and support.
The shoes will be available in August and will cost you £179.95.
Right, let’s get into it…
Which clubs won the most PGA Tour victories?
And it got me thinking. Which equipment claimed the most titles in the 2018-19 PGA Tour campaign? So I opened up a spreadsheet and got stuck in.
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Driver
The two players battling it out for player of the year, Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy, have boosted the TaylorMade M5 winning stats both winning twice with the club in play. Overall this model recorded nine wins across 45 PGA Tour events.
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Fairway woods
Dustin Johnson claimed the first victory of the season for the M5 at the WGC-Mexico Championship. More recently we have seen Matthew Wolff and Colin Morikawa claim their maiden PGA Tour victories with M5 3-wood’s in their set-up.
2nd: Titleist TS2
3rd: Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Hybrids
Interestingly only nine of the PGA tour winners this season were carrying hybrids, of these a third chose to play Titleist, including Patrick Cantlay in his win at Memorial.
2nd: Bridgestone Tour B XD-H
3rd: All other brands
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Driving iron
Driving irons were much more popular among winners than hybrids but a wider variety of brands and models were used. All three winning models were in play during three victories on tour. Phil Mickelson had the Callaway X Forged in his bag when he won AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Irons
Brand with most wins: TaylorMade
Model with most wins: TaylorMade P730
TaylorMade irons claimed 10 victories on tour with 50% of them relying on the P730 irons.
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Wedges
More than 50% of winners on the PGA Tour this season has a Titleist wedge in their bag.
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Putter
Just shy of a third of winners on tour had a Scotty Cameron putter in their set-up. The TaylorMade Spider continued to be popular on tour with numerous styles claiming victory in nine events.
- Has the Spider putter taken your fancy? You could win one here.
2nd: Scotty Cameron Newport
3rd: Odyssey EXO Stroke Lab 2-Ball/ Odyssey White Hot Pro #7
2019 PGA Tour winners clubs: Ball
Gary Woodland secured victory at the US Open with his Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. 12 other winners also used this ball en route to victory with 25 PGA Tour winners gaming a Titleist golf ball.
2nd: Titleist Pro V1x
3rd: Callaway Chrome Soft X
That was fun. Let me know in the comments below or you can tweet me if you have any questions – or if you’re interested in seeing my spreadsheet.
