WITB: Matt Wallace - Hero Indian OpenMarch 11, 2018 Golf Equipment
See which models the Ping staffer used to claim his second European Tour title
England’s Matt Wallace relied on a bag full of Ping equipment as he beat Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston in a play-off to claim the Hero Indian Open.
Wallace favours the LST version of the Ping G400 driver which is probably the model slightly most favoured by tour players.
Although we have seen a fair bit of love for the new G400 Max which is a bit larger and more stable.
The 27-year old sticks with the G400 range for his 3-wood and 3-hybrid.
With the irons we see a very common set-up among professionals these days with the more powerful i-200 in the long irons and a bit more finesse with the i-Blades in the shorter irons.
Wallace has a mixture of Ping Glide 2.0 wedges with the brand new Stealth finish in the 46 and 52 but the standard hydropearl chrome finish in the lob wedge.
He plays the Pro V1x ball and wears the popular FootJoy Pro SL shoes.
“I played great,” Wallace said. “Ever since being three over through eight at the start of the week I’ve played some of the best golf of my life and to do it in that style at the end there capped it off.
“Beef really had a great round today because I was playing fantastic and thought I might have been a few more clear.
“I hit some really good shots and that play-off: I pumped it down there on the last and it went a long way and then a four iron went even further than I thought it would so I was jacked up a bit. To hit two shots like that is exactly why I play the game.
“With the people that were coming up behind me, there were some real class players.
“Beef’s putt on the last should have gone in and it’s just my day today.”
