In his day, few players hit the ball farther and straighter than Jack Nicklaus. So the Golden Bear must have been proud to see Kenny Perry work his way around Muirfield Village last weekend, overcoming deep rough and fast greens to claim his third Memorial title.
Perry, long known as one of the premier ballstrikers on the PGA Tour, blends power and accuracy as well as anyone. For the week, he ranked ninth in driving accuracy, hitting more than 82% of the fairways, and tied for seventh in greens in regulation. But it was Perry's hot putter that put him in the winner's circle. He needed just 1.604 putts per green in regulation, ranking him fifth in putting for the tournament.
A few weeks ago Perry switched to a Ping G2i Craz-E putter. It has a soft urethane-based insert and extreme perimeter weighting. It may be tough for you to find one because it came out about four years ago and is not currently listed on the company's Web site.
Most of Perry's clubs are manufactured by TaylorMade, but here is a complete list of what he used to win the Memorial.
