A first win for Ping's new prototype blades. Equipment editor James Savage takes a look at what's in Oosthuizen's bag

Louis Oosthuizen WITB. The South African grabbed his first win for nearly three years with a brand new set of Ping prototype irons.

We first saw Oosthuizen put the Blueprint Prototypes in the bag at the Alfred Dunhill Links.

And it’s clear the 2010 Open Champion was heavily involved in the process of creating Ping’s latest players irons which we expect to learn more about in the new year.

It’s been just over two years since Ping introduced the iBlade so we would expect these to replace them.

Oosthuizen uses the Ping G400 LST driver which was the same model Patrick Reed opted to use ahead of his Masters victory earlier this year.

The G400 drivers have had a fantastic year with victories for both Ping staffers and non contracted players like Reed, Eddie Pepperell and Russell Knox.

The only non-Ping club in Oosthuizen’s bag is a Titleist TS3 3-wood. He has the 16.5 degree head.

Then he moves into the new Blueprint irons from 3-PW. Interestingly, he uses a graphite shaft in his 3-iron and then moves into steel shafts for the rest.

His wedges are the Glide Forged which were released in the summer and have gone down a treat with most Ping staff players.

Oosthuizen is a Titleist ball player and favours the Pro V1x.

He was wearing the brand new FootJoy Pro SL shoes for his victory at Randpark Golf Club where he cruised to a six-shot victory over Frenchman Romain Langasque.
