Winner’s bag: Dustin Johnson’s TaylorMade gear at the WGC-Mexico Championship

February 24, 2019

Dustin Johnson coasted to his 20th PGA Tour title at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship behind a red-hot putter. Known for his prodigious length, Johnson led the field in Strokes Gained: Putting, picking up more than nine strokes on the field during the tournament. Johnson recently tested putters but chose to stick with the TaylorMade Spider Tour Black mallet he’s used a majority of the time since the 2017 BMW Championship.

Johnson made a few adjustments to his setup in Mexico, returning to TaylorMade’s M5 driver and removing his P790 UDI for a more traditional P790 3-iron. He also altered his wedge gaps for the week, replacing the 54-degree Milled Grind in his bag with a 52-degree version.

Here’s a full list of the TaylorMade gear Johnson used to get the job done:

Driver: TaylorMade M5 (Fujikura Speeder Evolution 661 Tour Spec 2.0 X shaft), 10.5 degrees
