Tiger Woods picked up his 80th PGA Tour victory at the 2018 Tour Championship, ending a five-year winless skid dating back to the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
This is Woods’ first victory since moving on from Nike Golf equipment following their 2016 exit from the hard goods and equipment space. Tiger Woods used TaylorMade golf equipment for 13 clubs in his Tour Championship bag, while he used his trusty Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter, which he’s used to win 13 of his 14 major championships. Woods also uses a Bridgestone Golf ball.
The winner’s bag is one that has been in a state of flux throughout the year, with Woods using three different putters in 2018 and working in the TaylorMade TW Phase 1 prototype irons to move away from the special TGR irons he had been using throughout the early portion of the year.
Perhaps the biggest change for Woods through the playoffs was going back to the Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana D+ White Board shaft in his driver and fairway woods, a shaft he used dating back to 2014. Woods had experimented with other shafts throughout the year, including Mitsubishi’s Tensei Pro Orange, but he settled on this old friend before The Northern Trust.
