Dustin Johnson made a number of changes to his TaylorMade setup for his 21st PGA Tour win
Dustin Johnson’s remarkable record of winning at least one title in every season since joining the PGA Tour in 2008 goes on.
His win at the Travelers Championship was his 21st on the PGA Tour and 22nd in total.
This has been his longest wait between wins though, with the last coming at the WGC-Mexico Championship in February 2019.
“Hopefully it won’t be long until the next one,” he joked. Obviously it’s a great streak and any time you’re mentioned with the likes of [Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods] then it makes me very proud.
A career-low 61 on Saturday got Johnson within two of the lead going into the final day, and a 3-under 67 on Sunday was enough for a one-shot victory at River Highlands.
What’s in DJ’s bag?
DJ is one of a number of TaylorMade staffers who has put a rescue in play for 2020.
At the top end of his bag Johnson has swapped all his woods to the new TaylorMade SIM Max model.
“I’m playing the Max. I’ve got the Max driver and 3-wood, and I’m actually going to play a rescue club which I never thought that would happen,” Johnson told the PGA Tour.
“I’ve been hitting it the last few days. I hit it quite nicely. I don’t know, we’ll give it a run for a little while, see how it works.”
He’s followed Rory McIlroy’s lead and added two SIM Max Rescues into his set-up. He then carries a full set of the TaylorMade P730 DJ Proto irons from 4-iron down to pitching wedge.
Johnson swapped to two wedges this week to make room for the extra hybrid. They are all in the TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 model with raw faces.
As always Johnson has been mixing it up on the greens and has already played with numerous models in 2020, he was using a Spider Tour Mini Putter but has swapped this for the TaylorMade TB1 Truss. He uses the TaylorMade TP5x golf ball.
