What clubs did Molinari use to seal Europe's Ryder Cup win?September 30, 2018
The Italian was the star man in Paris to claim five points in a crushing win for Team Europe. Equipment editor James Savage takes a look at the clubs he used to seal victory...
Francesco Molinari WITB. The Italian was the hero at Le Golf National with five points from five including the winning point against Phil Mickelson in the singles.
Following up his sensational victory at The Open earlier this year, Molinari was Team Europe’s star man from start to finish in Paris.
The former Nike staffer has gradually switched into mostly TaylorMade gear over the past couple of years with a few exceptions.
We found out recently how the free agent works closely with TaylorMade to get his clubs dialled in.
Molinari is regarded as being one of the most consistent drivers of the ball hitting around 70 per cent of fairways with his TaylorMade M4 driver.
We had seen him using the M1 model up until the M4 was released at the start of the year.
The 35-year-old has a strong M3 3-wood in the bag and he added a TaylorMade UDi 2-iron earlier this year.
It’s no surprise to see him opt for a TaylorMade P790 4-iron too which came out on top in our best irons for 2018 feature.
He then moves into the P750 model which are one of the most popular among European and PGA Tour players.
Molinari has the TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges including the Hi-Toe 60˚ which the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson are using.
After signing a deal with Bettinardi at the start of 2018, Molinari had put their BB56 model into play but made a switch at the Players Championship.
The model he used to win at both Wentworth and the Quicken Loans National, and now The Open, is the Dass BBZero…
Despite a bag full of TaylorMade clubs, Molinari plays the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball.
