WITB: Dustin Johnson – FedEx St. Jude Classic

Powered by National Club Golfer

DJ grabs his second win of 2018 after going back to the M4 driver and Spider Tour Black putter.

We had originally expected DJ to put the M3 driver into play from the get go but as previously reported, the M4 at 9.5˚ did the job for him at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

Johnson had used the adjustable M1 throughout 2017 and liked to deploy one of the moveable weights in the toe to help him hit his trademark high fade.

So, it was a surprise when he plumped for the M4 but he said it wasn’t necessary to shape the ball too much at Kapalua so long and straight was doing just fine.

He then switched to the M3 at the trickier Riveria ahead of the Masters and stuck with it at Augusta.

But he wasn’t able to add to his trophy cabinet with it and has now just landed his second win of the year at TPC Southwind with the M4.

Johnson uses the P730 ‘DJ Proto’ irons – pretty much the same ones Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose have in the bag.

And another new club for 2018 is the ‘Hi-Toe’ lob wedge in 64˚ to go alongside his other two Milled Grind wedges.

He had also dabbled with the Spider Tour Mini putter for a few events last month.

But has gone back to a trusty Spider Tour black.

DJ favours the TaylorMade TP5x ball.
