Hideki Matsuyama defended his Waste Management Phoenix Open title by holding off Webb Simpson in a playoff Sunday at TPC Scottsdale. After trading pars on the first three playoff holes Matsuyama birdied the drivable 17th, giving the 24-year-old superstar his fourth PGA Tour win, the most ever by a Japanese player. In 2016 Matsuyama also won the Phoenix Open in a four-hole playoff over Rickie Fowler.

Here’s a full list of gear he used on Sunday to get the job done:

Driver: Callaway Great Big Bertha (9.0°) with Graphite Design Tour AD DI-8 TX shaft
